The reason states like MI and CA have super drunk laws (forgot that MI is 0.17), is to try and discourage that behavior. I'd feel bad for Sheahan to a point, but I don't believe in making excuses or that boys will be boys, once he decided to get behind the wheel. He took a dumb risk, and now he'll have to man up to it.
I don't feel bad for him really. I'm also not making an excuse for him.

But boys will be boys ... well, that's just a fact of life. Boys will be boys. Girls will be girls. Youth will be youth.

I just think it's unfair to suggest he's some kind of "bad apple" or that he's an idiot.

I don't know many people who had their priorities in perfect order at 20 years old. In fact, anyone who had a 40-year-old's priorities at 20 is someone who I regarded with suspicion.
