Anybody who kills someone while driving drunk should be treated the same as if they were randomly shooting in public. Fry the bitch.

While i agree with the sentiment i also agree with trying to get the person to understand the problem they have.
My solution would be to first undergo the treatment for the alcoholism and when they are clean and sober then start the legal sentence for the crime. Place a length of time for treatment to occur and then ship em off for the sentence.
It is no use to send someone in denial to jail for a crime they can't understand why they committed but a clean and sober individual will fully appreciate the time behind bars. Letting a drunk back out on the street in five/ten/years still leaves us with the problem.
And if they can pay for the booze.....they can pay for the treatment.

If I still had every dollar I spent on motorbikes I would be a richer man but a poorer person.
