    Adios you said the world is round so watch out!!! We should never say it’s a good thing that someone was killed.The man had family and were left without a father by a drunkard .You should say shame on the law for not sending the killer to jail.

    So that’s it????? How much does a this police officer’s life cost? This police officer was killed by a drunken driver and he walks away? No jail time!! So, he can do it again right???

    This drunk pays $3,000 to only two of the people he damaged and that’s it??? This is what this drunk BDF Corporal caused:

    1. Death of a police officer and father
    2. Two broken legs and 2 broken ribs of the police officer’s wife, the broken legs required surgery and pins.
    3. Two broken legs that required surgery and pins of the police officer’s son
    4 Head injury and one broken leg that left a now 14 year old girl with a limp for the rest of her life. By the way she was the police officer’s daughter. Multiple surgeries.
    5. Broken hip of police officer’s mother-in-law. Also required surgery
    6. Broken rib and punctured lung of the police officer’s sister-in-law. Surgery

    Denis Hanomansingh, does the fine you charged seems just to you???? Do you drive? What if it were you or your family, would the ridiculous amount of $3,000 to only two of these people seem fair to you? Is your job too big for you?? This man was found guilty!!!!

    Adios, I hope you have never done anything wrong in your life, remember karma is a !@#$%. You do have parents and siblings right? How would you feel is someone as cold hearted as you said it was good they were killed by a drunk. Are you lol now? God have mercy on you.
