As a fan of the NFL my heart goes out to the family of their son.I work years as an EMT and I still have no use of a drunk driver.

Comment #1... and #2....agreed.

Comment #3.....I hear you....never worked as EMT, but have had a friend killed by a drunk.
Harsher punishements required......but will stop at that......condolences to the Brown family.
It is way too hard to process an avoidable death like this.
