Kill six people go to a luxory resort-er sorry, a "healing lodge"

Also on the radio was a news story of a Saskatchewan woman who while driving drunk last year killed six people, she was sentenced to ten years in jail but now, after serving just four months, she has been transferred to a "Healing Lodge" to deal with her problems and allow for personal and spiritual healing or some such b.s.

This is another example of how society seems to be turning everyone into the victim, rather then her taking responsibility for her own actions, she is being allowed to blame her own circumstances and personal problems for what happened. Maybe she has a drinking problem, maybe she needs it dealt with, but that does not excuse her for what she did. No matter what reason there was behind why she was driving drunk that night, she was still driving drunk and she has to face full responsibility for that fact.
