Sorry, but I cannot garner any sympathy for this young man. I don’t believe this gives the whole picture of the criminal actions before this happened. Mr. Herrin was both old enough & smart enough to look at the worst case scenario that could happen. A lot of talk is made about 1/2 of his life being taken away…wrong, he threw it away when he made a conscious decision to get behind the wheel of his car & illegally race on city streets. The victim & her baby didn’t throw their life away…Herrin, his brother & their friend stole it from them, they also changed the lives of the families & friends of these innocent victims FOREVER. And, at least 3 or 4 times, in this piece alone it mentions how good looking & how young he is. That baby was only 1 yr old, she’ll never get to be 2 yrs old. Oh, I forgot…many people believe it’s OK to murder an infant capable of living outside a mothers womb – and call it abortion. I don’t even know anyone involved is this tragedy, yet I’m angry, angry because of all the people who think the sentence handed down is too harsh. He killed 2 people & he really screwed up. Perhaps one day we will have programs where these types of crimes will send the perpetrator to live with people permanently handicapped from preventable actions so they can see how real their actions become to those they damage. But first, parents, make sure your kids learn to face the consequences of their actions.
