Mujhe Gussa Kyon Ata Hay - Part 1

My friend lost his fiancée on Christmas Day because a reckless driver, while speeding with an SUV on the wrong side of the freeway, landed up in a head-on-collision with her car. The driver had prior violations and convictions that included driving without a valid license, speeding and a DUI. On Saturday, he was driving with a suspended license and in being investigated if he was drunk. According to me, this guy should be brought to the city center and hanged until death in full view of the public in order to make an example for all those who think drinking and driving is OK, speeding is fun or driving like a maniac is some kind of real life video game. However, in reality, ‘the greatest country on earth’ will cite several articles and amendments of its constitution that give him full rights and benefits of his citizenship, get him a cushy lawyer who will spin all kinds of stories to prove this man's innocence and then he will be tucked comfortably behind bars to spend (I am hoping) for a long time on taxpayers money, which includes contributions from the woman that he has just killed. And then … life will go on … with speeding, reckless driving and DUI continuing to remain a part of this country’s tradition … an evil that is denounced on paper but fully practiced and … for some mysterious reason … never attempted to be completely eliminated.
