It is insane to release someone who has killed four people
back into our
society. Ricky Carter is a murderer. What he did is no
different than if
he had taken a weapon and killed four people. His weapon of
choice - it was
a choice- was alcohol and a high speed truck. I've spent a lot
of time in my
Criminal Justice career observing the devastation that drunk
drivers do to
families and friends and the only solution when death is
caused by alcohol
is long term incarceration. I believe Mr. Carter's sentence
been four consecutive twenty year sentences rather than the
one he received.
I strongly object to Mr. Carter's consideration for parole.
Please stand up
for the victims and their families and do not release Mr.
Carter until he
has served the maximum allowed by law.
