Letter to the Editor - Thoughts On The Cooper Case

While I do not support Brian Cooper and what he did I have to say that I hardly think posting a poll about his guilt or innocence is wrong.  We are not sitting in that court room to hear all the details.  Myself, I would have a very difficult time issuing a guilty verdict for "1st Degree INTENTIONAL Homicide when there was alcohol involved.  We've all seen the effects of alcohol on people. Even the most mild mannered person can become violent when they have too much alcohol in their system.  I don't know if this is what the jury is deadlocked on or not but if I was on that panel I would have to vote NO for the 1st Degree.  Do I think he deserves to get off...ABSOLUTELY NOT!!!  It was his decision to consume the alcohol that caused the drunken rage that resulted in the death of the woman and her baby.  He should most certainly be charged and sent to prison for a long time for what he did.  Unfortunately, with our legal system, he is either going to get prison or a slap on the wrist depending on how this all ends. The only thing certain is that it is costing our county a fortune.  I am a firm believer that whichever facility that served him the alcohol should be brought into this and made to pay fines to cover some of the cost.  It was irresponsible of them to serve him that much.
