    I have no sympathy for people that break the law. Especially if they are endangering lives!

    I am so sorry

    No sympathy whatsoever. Never ever ever. No way no how. Do i make myself clear? I don't think for the general population there is a more stupid decision that can be made that the decision to drink drive. It turns any jo-soap into a potential killer.

    Definitely not! Would this guy juggle knives? Probably not, so I don't think he should be risking not only his own life, but other peoples lives because he's desperate for a drink. He's a big boy so he should know what's right from wrong.

    No sympathy at all. I would think anger would be a more appropriate reaction. My sympathy goes to the victims of drink driving instead.

    I don't have any sympathy! It's really something nobody should ever be caught doing.

    If you have no other way of getting somewhere, then sleep in your car. You're a fu.cking idiot if you think that having no other way to get home is an excuse.

    Because I don't view it that way.

    I am in no way condoning it, but I think that people can make stupid careless decisions (especially when drunk) that can have tragic consequences.

    I honestly do feel sorry for anyone who does something that they later regret.

    If that 'something' impacts on others then I feel sorry for those people too.

    The only time I wouldn't feel so sorry for that person would be if they routinely did it with a 'what the hell' attitude. But even then I'd still feel bad for them if they did end up injuring or killing someone.

    Guess I'm in the minority on this one though.
