Parole Board of Pardon and Reviews
RE: Parole Review Offender: Ricky Carter
State ID: 06227942
Placed in parole review on 07/05/05
This is no way
to deter drunks from driving! I am outraged at the
possibility of Ricky Carter being paroled after serving less
than 5 years of a 20 year sentence in the MURDER of 4
innocent teens. Yes, I said Murder! Not to
mention the numerous lives forever changed by his careless
actions. This was no accident, it was an outrage.
We all make choices every day and Ricky Carter made a bad
choice. He chose to drink and drive. We are also
to be held responsible for the choices we make. Ricky
Carter needs to accept responsibility for the bad choice he
made that fateful night. I, personally, am sick and
tired of the innocent paying for the actions of the guilty!
Especially those who pay with their lives. It's just wrong!
drivers, especially those who take the lives of others, to
walk away with not much more than a ďtime outĒ is
unacceptable. Those young women canít walk away.
Their families, friends and loved ones canít walk away.
If you want to get the attention of those who drink and
drive then show them they will not get a slap on the hand an
a free pass to continue making bad choices. Ricky
Carter and all of those like him should be punished and
remain locked up if for no other reason than to have some
serious time to think about what they have done, who they
have affected and the voids left in the lives of the
I did not
personally know the victims or families but if I am as angry
as I am about Ricky Carterís possible release, I can only
begin to imagine the hurt, anguish, grief and even anger of
the families and friends of those four beautiful young women
so savagely taken from this world that night. I hope I
never have to experience what these families have been
through. May God bless them and strengthen them.
representatives of the law abiding people of the great state
of Texas, do your job and deny Ricky Carter parole. He
did the crime, now he must do the time. The day you
come up with a way to let these four young women return to
their families and let life go on for them is the only day
you should even begin to consider allowing Ricky Carter to
return to his life and carry on.
Thank you for
your time and consideration. Now listen to the people.
No parole for Ricky Carter Drunk Driver!
