DWI Death Causes Reconsideration of Casino Drinking Proposal

Freitag 13. März 2009 von htm

Connecticut Gov. M. Jodi Rell is „rethinking“ a proposal to extend drinking hours at the state’s two casinos in the wake of a college student’s death in an automobile accident that police attribute to drunken driving. Rell and Republican legislators had proposed extending drinking hours at the Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun casinos to 24 hours a day, seven days a week. But the death of Connecticut college student Elizabeth Durante, who was killed when the van she was riding in was hit head-on near the exit for the Mohegan Sun casino, has created doubt about the proposal. (Source: Join Together, 3/12/09) Comment: Why it is necessary that a college student has to die, before the Governor „rethinks“ such a proposal? Is it not enough that people die every day because of DWI?
