-- is some -- euphoria December 3 last year than sixteen year old.
Tyler Alfred from Oklahoma was driving under the influence and -- -- pick up truck.
Killing his passenger and friend sixteen year old John -- -- How would plead guilty to first degree manslaughter in August and -- -- rookie county saw the Skokie.
I you know -- Oklahoma district judge Mike Norman decided not to give him any jail time just probation -- ordered to attend church regularly for the next ten years.
I've got several clots in his files but you start -- -- There's a fine and his blood alcohol was some points point six point seven I think that's double legal limit there are other issues it's not just attend church or other things yes -- my school.
Yes -- graduate from welding school -- to go through various forms of -- testing going forward.
On the other hand he 717.
Year old -- seventeen years all.
Products accept -- -- now is kind of adult you know I mean -- the New Hampshire he's getting this because he he he.
Is seventeen and he's not -- -- get my wrong.
Well then maybe part of it but that's it seems to me that -- I'm I'm a firm believer in going to church but this really clearly -- crosses the boundary between church and state.
Want -- I don't know why the judge decides just alcohol testing why didn't sentence him to ten years of alcohol rehab.
Or at least outpatient rehab because a kid like this -- -- -- at this age I will guarantee.
In my experience there will continue to drink and drive in this kid's gonna kill -- -- somebody else again.
Whether he goes to church or not.
I don't I think maybe this was a good.
Solution because perhaps then the remorse that he expresses -- article.
For that incident actually then he'll find a way to improve his life.
And -- the ACLU wants a step in to be helped -- parents these kids which is what the government has had to do.
That that that all things that he got sentenced to is things that parents used to tell you had to do graduate high school.
Get it drying out process meant he can't go to church for ten years that was something that your parents did but -- -- a government.
Hasn't it has to do -- I don't -- the ACLU.
Doing anything else to help this young you don't think the -- that's a big crossover I don't care know when when when the ACLU ends that Charlie Brown Christmas.
Excursions from seven year old and not like this -- what they spend their time doing I think that they should butt out in this case and that the guy -- urgency if it works and helps them.
I have to disagree within.
I think this is outrageous.
On China -- is -- and unconstitutional.
Easy did the judge you the grandstanding or is incompetent.
-- it trivializes the case they should syndicated jailed -- and the judge to law school.
My guess is he probably wants a TV show ever since Judge Judy every judge wants and he wants their own show he's probably looking for me was always where you're OK with the rest of your right with these guys guys all -- slit.
Victims -- take part -- victims -- impact panels and -- The visited a queries and that would be unemployed.
And very clear violation of the First Amendment he can't do this and I'm gonna say -- that I don't think I've ever said before I actually agree with ACLU.
He can't do this it's not the government's role to step in and mandate that he go to church.
I think the most important issue is that the -- is that though that the punishment doesn't really fit the crime.
This kid already says that he goes to church they said that yes this get his DDD and I think that's a good intention.
Funny people have education with who go out and kill people and they're dry drunk and that it.
Who isn't getting his -- and it's going to church.
There's a punishment for that there's a there's a lot of kids that I know were alcoholics who go for weekends in jail -- weekends right there they have to do intensive.
Therapy on her drinking and their drugging and I think that makes a lot more sense right -- -- -- being forced to go to church.
-- -- his ged behind bars and maybe even judge.
Exercising his judgment.
Saw something redeeming in this young man and thought that he.
Was making the best decision based on his thing that I believe in local control it judge that counties and states should be -- -- their judges.
I have had to send this guy as an elected judge -- -- a may be appointed by political appointee and then he's making a judge that's what they -- they make judgments.
I think one more point we don't know if this was the that defendants proposal say.
Hey I'll go to church continues to judge said okay fine put -- on the list so that may have been given an out of -- you don't think for a minute this is gonna survive the cork city.
I don't I Atlantic basin -- you seriously until they defend that guy who made the video.
And that caused that that's -- the did not -- that and Ghazi.
Well this this -- this one as let him rot in jail and practices in and and your -- is about as clear violation of church state that I think I've ever -- -- -- your whole issue just the church part.
And I I wish they would go to church I think it's great.
I -- of loneliness it -- mad because now I don't -- at me I am not -- -- -- you don't hear you let me let me give you -- I thought about that.
Sit right here you'll get that feel like what is -- judges should have discretion but I do think this is -- is -- pretty clear that he's crossing the line with this one and it.
Not an adequate punishment.
That's I think that's for.
