this guy doesn't even look sorry. :-t

Pretty much how I pictured: a scummy douchebag.

I'd say we should lynch this prick, along with other people who consistently drive drunk, but that probably wouldn't be ethical.

My condolences to everyone affected by this tragedy. RIP. :,-(
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

That's horrible. Absolutely horrible. It should be way harder for people with previous DUIs to get their licenses back.

The problem is his license was suspended already. In this case, they are considering (rightfully so) murder charges. See http://www.usatoday.com/sports/baseball ... rges_N.htm

Hamilton said Andrew Gallo shouldn't expect much leniency because his blood-alcohol level exceeded the state limit of .08%, he had a prior DUI conviction, he was driving on a suspended license, and he fled the scene.

Yeah not having their license isn't much of a deterrent for a lot of people to not keep driving.

Worth reading: http://www.baseballprospectus.com/unfiltered/?p=1236

Its a personal story about a clubbie in LA who worked Nick Adenhart's locker. But incredibly well written and moving.

This is something that I hate to talk about, and before I do I will preface it by saying that I have done some stupid things in my life, and apologize everyday for them, as well as thank God everyday that nothing serious resulted from my previous actions.
I have three DUIs in my still relatively short life. All occurance resulted in accidents, though luckily ALL have been one car accidents, my own. I do know now that each time I sat behind the wheel drunk, I endangered every life that was on the road. One positive, on top of never injuring anyone, is that I never drove with a suspended liscense. My liscense is gone for 10 years as we speak (7 more to go), and I have not drove at all, not even just to park a car.
These incidents were incredibly stupid on my part. Me and my wife pray ALL of the time in thanks for never injuring/killing anybody. Because of these incidents, I have become pretty religious. I actually 'teach' a alcoholics meeting at the church that I attend.

I am deeply saddened for all involved in this situation, and any and every similiar to it. You all can bash me if you want, as it is the easy way out during/after a tragedy. To even tell this in a forum like this has taken quite a bit of heart on my part. I hate to say it, but things happen for a reason. God has a plan for all the people involved and not involved in this situation. If we do not grow and become better people for it, then we have failed. I know that I will not fail because of what I have gone through.

I have and will continue to pray for all those involved. My best wishes to those.

RIP

Andy
