.Drunken driver kills seven at Moscow bus stop

Reuters – Sat, Sep 22, 2012. Posted 23 Sept.............

MOSCOW (Reuters) - A drunken driver ploughed his car into a bus stop in Moscow on Saturday, killing seven people and injuring three others, police said.

The driver, who was detained and could face nine years in jail, had his license suspended in 2010 for drunk driving, police said. Interfax news agency quoted a police official as saying he was driving at about 200 km per hour (125 mph).

"As a result of a test that was conducted, it was determined that at the time of the accident the driver was in a state of alcoholic intoxication," a statement on the Moscow police website said.

Death rates from alcohol and from road accidents are higher in Russia than in many Western countries.

Of course our drunks don't start drinking before breakfast as much as the Russians.

Very sad.

Driving approximately one hundred and twenty-five miles per hour? Good Lord.

He deserves death, and nothing less.

If they let him keep driving over a hundred miles an hour while drunk, he will probably get it.

It's my understanding that individual lives aren't seen as having nearly as much value in Russian culture as in Western European and American cultures. This does nothing at all to dispel that notion.

From what I have seen on "Hard Time" a TV program, 9 years in one of the prisons for killer is like 20+ years in one of ours.

Except they have much more control over each prisoner so they are safer.

A very harsh life to say the least. But this guy should get a firing squad, but I am not sure they do that either.
