Just been watching utube--PD"s police dept videos--"step out of the car sir" etc.
Then some courts DUI--drunk under the influence.
The judge was dishing out sentences of 50 years for killing someone due to the defendants being on alcohol or/plus drugs. --usually a second offence.
what a difference to the Uk--never heard of any sentences like that over here--more like 10 at the most?
Multiple murderers seem to get about 100 years-one got 400 -that "ll teach him.
What a difference to the UK.-innit.

Not as big as you seem to think, Rog. Americans don't live to 400. :wink: :D

Indeed. We’d must be doing some much better since the UK isn’t awash with deliberate and accidental homicide.
