I am sympathetic toward such cases and you're not wrong that the criminal justice system is horribly classist and racist.

It's just that in this particular instance, I just can't find it in me to feel sympathy for those who drink and drive and ruin lives, though.

There are many instances where you're correct. This is not one of them. You kill someone while driving drunk, you belong indebted to their family for life. It isn't a "mistake" or an "error in judgment." It's negligent homicide via selfish behavior.

Fuck people who drink and drive. They don't deserve pity, and they certainly don't deserve leniency in sentencing.
