Change the Wisconsin Laws regarding The state statute for homicide by drunken driving
On November 20th, 2015 around 6pm, Christian Kempf and his 10 year old son who were Amish were traveling on Wood County HH near Hansen Wisconsin when the wagon they were in was struck from behind by 31 year old Seth M. Nelson who was by law, intoxicated making this a homicide. Due to a flaw in the way this law in Wisconsin handling accidents involving drunk drivers when a death occurs is handled, this man simply was able to walk free because they argued this accident would have happened either way. Allowing this man to walk free was a slap in the face to the surviving family and to anyone who has lost a loved one to a drunk driver because this is basically saying it's okay to drink and drive and if you happen to kill someone in the process, you can walk free if the blame can then be put back on the victim instead of saying the accident would not have happened if not for the selfish choice the perpetrator made when getting behind the wheel while intoxicated. This accident and many others could have been avoided and this flaw in the justice system needs to be fixed so the victims of such incidents can see true justice served for their loved ones.
