    I can't believe that they've got a crime scene that they're still investigating and victims still in critical condition, and they're already talking death penalty.

    Because the sanctity of life.

    They haven't said anything about that. Because it's a capital murder charge he could face it. No telling if they're going to pursue that though.

    That's America for you.

    But seriously,I can't believe that this happened.

    I guess they need to set up barriers around the barriers to keep out insane drunk fucks like this asshole.

    87% of fatal traffic accidents are caused by sober drivers. Everyone should not have a breathalizer attached to their car.

    I agree. Just look at this....

    Here are some quick and scary facts:

    Alcohol is involved in about 40% of all fatal car crashes.
    Drivers with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of only 0.02 to 0.05 % are 7 times more likely to die in a crash than sober drivers.
    Drivers with a BAC of 0.20% are 90 times more likely to die in a crash than sober drivers.
    Alcohol-related crashes in the U.S. cost about $51 billion each year.
    Male drivers are twice as likely as female drivers to be involved in a DUI crash with a BAC of 0.08% or greater.
    Usually 30% of all fatal crashes on a weekday had alcohol involved, compared to 52% on weekends.

    Are you a complete moron? The police were trying to keep drunk drivers off the road. Sure, arguments can be made about the ineffectiveness of DUI checkpoints but your answer to over-regulation is.... more regulation and big-brother oversight? The cost of installing a device like that on every car on the road would be absolutely insane and even if you had the money to do it, getting it done would be near impossible.
    This is such sad news though. These people were probably looking forward to this festival all year like we look forward to Coachella. How terrible and unfair life can be sometimes.

    Uh no. The blame falls squarely on the driver, don't try to spin this as the fault of law enforcement for merely doing their job to ensure patrons stay safe.

    Pitchfork photographer Colin Kerrigan says, "Right after I walked out of Stubb's, I ran right into the nightmare scene that was unfolding outside...Crazy night. It was pretty disturbing overall especially because Kurt Vile was playing at the venue next door to Mohawk and you could hear his acoustic jams out on the street. So he kind of soundtracked the whole scene without ever knowing what all the flashing lights were about.
    ...creepy

    Can there be a 'unbelievably dumb motherfucker' device attached to keyboards so that when an unbelievably dumb motherfucker tries to communicate their laughable and senseless opinions, the keyboard shuts down? And then maybe like blows up?

    When exactly does the moratorium end on making jokes about stupid people writing stupid 'should be legislation ideas' in a thread about a music festival in which there was a terrible accident?

    More details and updates have been revealed about last night's tragedy at SXSW. As previously reported, two people were killed and 23 were injured when a car plowed into a crowded street at an epicenter of the festival (9th and Red River, outside the Mohawk) around 12:30 a.m.
    A press conference was held this morning featuring Austin Police Chief Art Acevedo, Austin Mayor Lee Leffingwell, and Managing Director of SXSW Roland Swenson, as well as representatives from the fire department and EMS.
    Acevedo said the suspect has been booked and will be charged with two counts of capital murder and 23 counts of aggravated assault with a vehicle. The name of the suspect will be revealed when the charges are filed. Acevedo also urged any witnesses with any information to contact the Austin Police.
    One of the deceased was a local Austin woman who was riding a moped along with another man who is currently in critical condition. The second person who died was a man from the Netherlands who was riding a bicycle. (Previously, it was reported that both people killed had been riding the moped.)
    Eight people remain in the hospital. Two are still in critical condition and three are receiving treatment or surgery.
    "We cannot allow one individual to ruin a wonderful event," Acevedo said. "I urge SXSW to continue." He called the suspect "an individual who showed no regard for human beings."

    Same here. Had to call and check on my son and his band today and thankfully all are OK. Hope all the board members attending and their friends and family are safe.

    Unless, you know, you find the death penalty to be morally abhorrent. Or even if you just want to wait for the basic investigation to conclude first . . .

" And, that's when my heart began to really hurt... It doesn't matter that I'd probably never met any of them...Just the idea that our paths may have crossed while at one time, enjoying a music set together, or, perhaps someone from this board who may have attended SWSX this year, is enough to bring it "close to home" for me. My thoughts and prayers go out to those affected by this senseless tragedy...
