Dave Hoagland and his family will be protesting the lightweight sentence handed down to DUI driver Luke Peterson by Judge Chuck Hosack Tuesday. The Hoaglands will be at the corner of 5th & Sherman at 4 p.m. today. They're upset that Peterson received only 18 months in a work release center, after killing a father, a mother, and critically injuring their 2-month-old baby while driving drunk on Highway 95 in Boundary County last July. Comments Dave: "Drunk Driving is in fact and reality 'domestic terrorism,' killing over 16,500 each year in the U.S.A. Every 2 minutes a person is injured by an alcohol related traffic incident. Every two hours a person is killed in an alcohol-related traffic incident in the U.S.A.-Domestic Terrorism. I and hopefully others from this Blog will join with me during and after this protest. I can be contacted at 208-610-5462 (cell) and 208-265-9571 (evenings) to discuss the details of today's protest.
DFO: Dave's full comment can be found under the Thursday Wild Card.
