Did you guys hear about this Texas Judge?

On BBC World news:
Driver humiliated by Texas judge
A driver involved in a fatal accident in the US has been given a string of humiliating punishments by a judge.

Texas District Judge Keith Dean jailed Frank Dorsett for a year, and ordered that he must then drive a low-powered car and carry a photo of the wreck he helped to cause outside Dallas in June 2003.

He must also take daily medication that will make him sick if he drinks alcohol, and carry a bumper sticker asking other motorists to call the probation department if he drives recklessly.

Dorsett was racing another driver along a highway when the other man hit and killed a 16-year-old girl in a third car.

Judge Dean was not satisfied with a jury's decision that Dorsett should face only probation.

The parents of Rachel Blasingame, the victim, praised the unusual sentence.

"We feel the terms of his probation will make up for anything the jury had taken away from us," said her father, Guy Blasingame.

Jason T Scott, the other driver involved in the chase, is awaiting trial.

That is all he got for killing a 16 year old girl thanks to his idioticy? From the sounds of it he was drinking too because they made him go on the medication to make him sick while he was driving.. thus indicating he may have been intocixated while the inncident.

But good Additives by the judge, now they should bring back the old law of branding the world "FUCKER" into the foreheads of sexual offenders, because apperantly that is where the term "fucker" originated.. but then again the info I was told could be invalid.

This scumbag should be made to drive a 10 year old Honda Civic, and have the words "DICKHEAD" branded into his forehead. May I would also suggest chemical castration, so he cannot pass on any of his bad habits to offspring, who may otherwise kill our daughters in the future...

Here we go!! origins of the word F U C K!!

Although this sounds like the most Anglo-Saxon of all Anglo-Saxon words, the origin of the f-word meaning 'sexual intercourse' is actually rather obscure. There is a legend that the old name for the crime of rape was 'Forced Unlawful Carnal Knowledge', and part of the punishment was that an abbreviation of the crime would be branded on the perpetrators head. Hence, people with 'F. U. C. K.' on their head were known to be rapists. A similar story is that during the time of the plague when it was necessary to increase the population a royal injunction was issued telling the common folk to 'Fornicate Under Command of the King.' These, however, would appear to be acronyms intentionally spelling out an existing word rather than new creations themselves.

Eric Partridge, a famous etymologist, has suggested that the Old German 'ficken' or 'fucken', meaning 'to strike or penetrate', was related to the Latin words for pugilist, puncture, and prick, or to the Latin 'futuere' which had the slang meaning 'to copulate'. There are also clearer links to Dutch where 'fokken' means breed and is applied to cattle, and to a Swedish dialect word 'fokken' which has the English meaning. Certainly, all the earliest uses of the word in English came via Scotland, suggesting a Scandinavian origin4.

Records from as early as 1278 identify a man called John Le-Fucker (which, considering people often had names to do with their occupations, makes the mind boggle), and it was certainly in common usage by the 16th Century, appearing in a dictionary, John Florio's A World of Words, in 1598. By the 18th century, it had became a vulgar term; It was even banned from the Oxford English Dictionary.

umm. let me get it sright. he didnt kill the girl right? he was just racing a car and the other car hit the girl. not him correct? well if thats the case i undertand. he shouldnt deserve to die or anythign that harsh. i mean like 1/2 the people on these boards street race and same thing could happen to them. you cant control the person ur racing against. as long as he didnt cause the guy to crash or personally hurt anyone then he is stight. yes he wrong for street racing and should be punished but lighten up some.

You can get probation for manslaughter.

Well, I've got to disagree. It takes two to race; if he had refused to race, the race wouldn't have happened, and the child would be alive. He definitely deserves a share of the responsibility. I guess I don't have an opinion either way about the punishment. I wonder how long all the "weird" restrictions apply.
