A man’s life is worth more than cash? | LETTER
Does it occur to our lawmakers that we have our priorities all off-balance?
The first article I read in the Reporter this week (Feb. 10) was about the drunk driver who killed Steve Lacey. It is recommended that he get the maximum sentence of four years.
The next article I read was about a Bothell man who robbed a bank in Kirkland. He will face a six-year sentence. REALLY! Four years for killing someone and six years for armed robbery. Surely a man’s life is worth more than some cash!
I think both sentences are too low but this certainly is a slap in the face to the poor Lacey family.
