In the Feb. 14 edition of the Wisconsin Dells Events, the web poll section asked "Should Wisconsin have tougher OWI laws?" on B5.
Then you turn the page to B9 and there is a story about a man who was arrested for his 10th OWI drunken driving offense, and has convictions dating back to 1997.
You have free articles remaining.
This man should have been locked up years ago. Before he has an accident and kills someone. His drinking is obviously out of control. He needs to be off the street and given some help, with rehab and jail time. Wisconsin needs to toughen up its OWI laws and start locking up people with a history of OWI convictions. They should not be driving. The police can only do so much to stop them. The laws and courts must do more.
