Monty Robinson's defence that his reaction to the incident, namely returning to his home to have a drink because he's an alcoholic, is laughable and as transparent as his moral character.

After all, character is defined by what we do when no one is looking. He left a dead youth on the road and attempted to cover up the fact he was impaired. Period.

Any person that consistently drinks and drives knows that is an age-old trick to avoid the breathalyzer test.

God knows, we cannot convict Robinson of alcoholism, but he should be prosecuted for his lack of character and obstruction of the truth.
