Dear Angela McCown, Director of Victim Services Division,

I am writing regarding the parole consideration of Ricky Carter and request that he serve the entire 20 years.  I am a friend of one of the families who daughter was killed by his wreckless act and attended part of the court hearings.  Seven years being locked away from family, friends, social life, etc., does not begin to correlate with taking the lives of four vibrant young ladies.  Twenty years per death would have been a more fair sentence, twenty years for all four lives is a disgrace.  These four young ladies had only begun to experience life and had so much more ahead of them.  Keeping Mr. Carter incarcerated for a total of 20 years is a mere drop in the bucket compared to the lives he took.

I am urging you to consider keeping him locked up for 20 years as some semblance of justice for these four families affected, relatives, and friends.  If each one of these girls lived to be 75, Mr Carter took 236 years of life, 20 years of his life is not too much to ask.
