I extend my deepest sympathies to the family of the child killed in
the recent senseless car crash. I can'€™t imagine your grief.

Here'€™s a summary of facts the StarNews reported about the driver
charged in this incident:

2010 Convicted on impaired driving charge

2012 Convicted on Level 2 (severe) DWI charge. Released from prison in
less than 6 months, probation revoked.

Currently faces charges for 10/15/2016 attempted breaking and
entering, for a prior drug possession and for two prior counts of
driving with revoked license.

5/15/2016 Found overdosed in Wilmington-rescued by administration of

7/14/2016 Caused car crash in Wilmington while drugged- again with a
NARCAN rescue.

9/26/2016 Found overdosed in Wilmington-saved again by NARCAN.

I think it is fair to conclude that the death of this precious toddler
was caused by the failed justice system that allowed this obviously
dangerous man to be free. And earlier this year, President Obama, who
thinks we are too tough on drug offenders, reduced the sentences of 61
convicted drug dealers. We should all be outraged.
