On March 23, 2003, Tori Andreozzi was walking home from school at about 2pm when she was struck from behind by a blue BMW. The driver of this BMW was Marilyn Brownell, and her blood alcohol content was 0.18 at the time that she hit Tori. This number is more than two times the legal limit for drunken driving (0.08). She did not stop; she did not even so much as slow the vehicle she continued on her way to the liquor store. Tori was a black belt in karate at the age of 12, she was constantly competing and traveling for tournaments. Now Tori is a Quadriplegic and instead of having karate practice every day she is having intensive Physical, Occupational, and Speech therapy. There are also many other treatments that she must undergo every single day. She cannot form words to speak, she will never have the chance to fall in love, have kids, and she didn’t get to attend prom or graduation. This is a life sentence to say the least. Why should Marylin Brownell get out early just because she has taken some classes at the ACI and has had good behavior? In the article “Lives Interrupted” states that “parole board found that “to parole Ms. Brownell would depreciate the serious nature of the crime,” and noted opposition from the attorney general’s office.” Why is it different now, it is still about 3 years early. If the government and law enforcement are trying to crack down and lessen drunken driving related deaths and injuries why would it be up for trial whether or not that person should be let out early? So I am asking that all of you sign this petition in the support of justice for the Andreozzis, as well as anyone who has been the victim of drunken driving accidents. Let’s all unite to show the parole board, and the law enforcement agencies; we support the enforcement of punishment for drunken driving and that early release is not acceptable. For more information or background on this particular case you can read the article, Lives Interrupted.
