Dear Board:
 
Please vote against releasing Ricky Carter on parole.
 
Beyond our moral obligation to the four young women he killed in that terrible crash, we have as a state and you as our representatives a further obligation to protect each other, our children, and our grandchildren from the obvious dangers of Ricky Carter on the highways.  It is also very important to show those who drink and drive that they will be severely punished.  Five years is not severe.  Because his conduct resulted in the deaths of four young women, he should serve at least ten years in prison, and preferably the entire sentence of twenty years.
 
Thank you.
