Yes the system definitely needs work, this should have been mounted and delt with closely 27 convictions AGO!!!! there are rapists PREDATORS worse than Raymond, at least we know what his problem is! I believe it has something to do with his childhood that attention thing we all crave one time or another.
Under all of this is probably a child screaming out for help that never comes :(

Unfortunately, Ann Marie, politicians are unlikely to support your extreme hard line position. I would be satisfied with the preposed alcohol law changes if they keep drunk drivers off the road and will e-mail this view to my M.P.

Our country club jails are no real deterent for this driver. Pointless talking about compulsory drug and alcohol assessment for this guy. He is no idiot, as getting caught entitles him to free food and accommodation. Our only hope is he drink drives and kills himself without injuring others.

australia have an excellent way to combat this . . . repeat offenders have imobilisers installed in their cars. . . every 5-20 minutes (depending on severity of offences) the driver must blow into a testing device which is connected to the immobiliser. if the driver fails the standard drink/drug test, the car is immediately shut down.

This case is the best argument I have seen for adopting Canada's solution.THere,he would get a mandatory sentence of 5 years imprisonment and there would be time to complete an addiction treatment course

Three strikes he should be out. Out of the public arena. He is hazard to society

It’s almost annoying that Mr Laing has not had a serious crash, then we could all go Aha we told you so. But thus far, decades of drunken driving, haven’t resulted in so much as a puncture. Mr Laing could rightly say in his capacity as New Zealand’s most notorious drunken driver that he is also our safest drunken driver and he has the record to prove it, how’s that for irony.

I think the law needs to be a lot tougher. A life sentence should be life sentence, locking people away for life. We need to change. We are not tough enough for sentencing. We need to be like America with their sentencing. We need longer jail time. And no parole.
