Older drivers and accidents: Don't discriminate based on age.

Lock 'im up.
For a long time. That's what I say you do with anyone who commits multiple counts of vehicular manslaughter (in this case, ten
). But will this driver even be charged
, or will we just let him be? After all, he's 86. We, as a society, can't make this nice old man spend the rest of his days in prison, if convicted? Sure, the public discussion regarding his age in this horrible tragedy
centers around the right of older people to continue driving without testing their ability and senses, but I want to focus on this: What's the unwritten age limit on convicting and sentencing someone like Russell Weller?
