Shouldn't that be manslaughter, at least?

Lock up this piece of garbage and never let him out. He has proven himself to be a menace and he thinks his driving is more important than innocent people's lives. Entitled, dangerous drivers who continue to get behind the wheel deserve to spend their lives in prison.

They need to stop suspending licenses and start giving these people escalating additional consequences ... like jail time.

Reckless driving, OUI ... once may be a stupid mistake, multiple times should be a criminal record and increasing prison sentences. I also don't get the OUI/reckless driving distinction anyway - OUI is a form of reckless driving, and both be felonies that carry high penalties, including permanent revocation for driving while your license is suspended or for your second offense. Driving is not a right.
