I read "Longmont man held after high-speed chase" by The Denver Post in The Denver Post. This article is about a 28 year old man who lives in Longmont that is facing charges after a high speed chase this morning at 2:30 am. Reports say that Christopher Rivera Jr. ran over road spikes and crashed his jeep before he was taken into custody. Police said that in 2001 Rivera was charged with vehicular assault and drunken driving. He has already served four years of supervised probation, and faced more than $6,000 in fines and court costs.
This matters to everyone because we don't need crazy people out there driving drunk and doing stupid things. Obviously this guy didn't learn from his "supervised probation". I think that people who make it a habit to drink and drive should be treated more severely. They just don't get it. We need a safer state, cities and neighborhoods.
