Charles Pierce, of Little Falls, who while driving when intoxicated last summer, forced another car off vhe road, senousiy injuring two women and a child, was sentenced to jail for 15 days. In Massachusetts besides the jail sentence he would have auto­ matically lost his right to drive . car for a year, and in New Jersey he would have gone to jail if caught driving while intoxicated. However, it is encouraging to know that <xo up-state judge can say the world “jail” when dealing with motor veh­ icle law violators. We have picked out the casp of Pierce for special mention here because his arrest was brought about by members of the New York State Automobile associa­ tion, who saw the accident while on their way to the mid-summer meeting at Ogdensburg. There is altogether too much le.i- iency among courts of New York state, particularly those outside of New York City. Judges and courts Ere too prone to listen to political influence or they haven’t got back­ bone enough to resist it. It might not be entirely inappropriate to ask, in view of this situation, how many people have gone to their death be­ cause the courts have failed to throw the fear of the law into the minds of reckless drivers and potential law breakers. A case in point is that of State Trooper Roy Donivan, who was shot to death on the so-called boot­ leg trail near Glen Falls a few weeks ago. The man later arrested on the charge of killing the trooper was a confessed bandit and bootleg hi­ jacker. He had a long criminal re­ cord, in which the words “sentence suspended’' frequently occurred. How much did those suspended sentences have to do with the death of Roy Donivan? Is it not fair to assume that this fine young state trooper torn away by the assassin’s hand from a young wife and child, might be living to-day if it were not for the frequency with which suspended sen­ tences are handed out to criminals with political backing? The latest figures in the number ■ people killed in this state by auto­ mobiles tell an eloquent story of the failure of the courts through leni­ ency and the failure of the Legisla­ ture through not enacting adequate laws. The number of persons killed in New York state this year up to Nov. 1 was 2,007. With two more months to go the figures will go up at least 2,300, the highest in the his­ tory of the state, a jump of nearly four hundred over last year. In New York city the number killed up to Nov. 1 was 730 while up-state 1,277 persons were killed. Up to a few years ago the number killed by auto­ mobiles was always greater in New York city than in the rest of the state. The falling off in New York city can be attributed to two causes, the licensing of operators and the fact that the courts there are giving stiff sentences to automobile law breakers. Outside of New York city the operators licensing law is not in effect, and the police courts are sub­ ject to the pressure of more petty politicians than most any other state in the country. How many more lives have got to be snuffed out before the Legislature and the courts wake up to their duty to the law abiding people of the state?
