Got this from another forum and some interesting discussion ensued.

I don't think anyone will disagree that the young man should be punished for crossing the center line and causing another person's death; but his sentence is the first from a new law in Mass and he is charged with vehicle homicide by texting.

Do you agree with the new law and how it was handled, or do you feel it's yet another law that erodes our rights and sends us down a slippery slope?
