I can't fathom seeing my son's death regardless of the cause...but an execution like that I might only think is worthy is if was like a pedafile kidnap-rape deal...premeditated planned murder
not saying its the right thing to do, but if I were in the scenario I would have done the same thing. Are you saying you wouldnt?

Who cares if hes a college kid? Are you saying he should be pardoned because of a potential future? What about the two young sons that didnt even get a chance at a life? yeah thats smart...

Knowing how many people die from drunk driving it could be argued that driving while intoxicated resulting in death is premeditated.

People actually agreeing with what the father did? Now the family will have lost 2 children and the father, this is not even a case of protection, dude just took his revenge right there. He is a menace to society and should be locked up.

I'm not trying to justify it, just saying if you are wondering "why did they think it is okay to drive while drunk?"...it is because THEY WERE DRUNK!

A little more rare than a drunk driving incident, but ill entertain.

Yes, depending on how it happened and possible state of mind during the incident. Absolutely.

if it was college kid or drunk teen...I'm not killing them

it would make me feel worse

I'l let the law deal with them...most of the time when this happens the driver's life is ruined anyway

it's not as rare at all...an enormous amount of auto accidents involve a cell phone these days

it sounds like you will just murder anyone regardless of how or why they crashed the car...that's not the answer

Texting while driving is a growing trend, and a national epidemic, quickly becoming one of the country’s top killers. Drivers assume they can handle texting while driving and remain safe, but the numbers don’t lie.

Texting While Driving Causes:

1. 1,600,000 accidents per year – National Safety Council
2. 330,000 injuries per year – Harvard Center for Risk Analysis Study
3. 11 teen deaths EVERY DAY – Ins. Institute for Hwy Safety Fatality Facts
4. Nearly 25% of ALL car accidents

Texting While Driving Is:

1. About 6 times more likely to cause an accident than driving intoxicated
2. The same as driving after 4 beers – National Hwy Transportation Safety Admin.
3. The number one driving distraction reported by teen drivers

Texting While Driving:

1. Makes you 23X more likely to crash – National Hwy Transportation Safety Admin.
2. Is the same as driving blind for 5 seconds at a time – VA. Tech Transportation Institute
3. Takes place by 800,000 drivers at any given time across the country
4. Slows your brake reaction speed by 18% – HumanFactors & Ergonomics Society
5. Leads to a 400% increase with eyes off the road

He made a mistake and he paid for it, like those 2 kids paid for his mistake also. Pretty simple stuff.

Careless mistake, wow how retarded can one person be.

I have to imagine texting and driving is a much harder statistic to determine at times though. Regardless, I few both as being unacceptable.
