My sister tells me that her neighbor, who killed two people, has been sentenced to twelve years in prison. She was driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol, and one of the victims was only sixteen years old. If it were my child, family member, or friend who was killed, I wouldnít think twelve years was nearly enough. And with the overcrowding in California prisons these days, she might only do half the time. Itís hard to feel that justice has been served here. I feel so sad for everyone involved in this tragic case, even my sisterís neighbor.
