Drunk Hit-and-Run Murderer in Santa Clarita Not First Time Offender

Are you ready for your blood to really boil?

A local Santa Clarita news blog is reporting that Marco Valencia, the hit-and-run drunk driver who crossed two lanes of traffic to plow into a group of cyclists over the weekend is not a first time drunk driver.  From a KHTS article posted in 2008.

In what is becoming a regular weekend morningexperience, Canyon County residents woke up Sunday morning withoutpower because of a traffic accident.

Canyon Country resident Marco Valencia, 20, wasarrested on suspicion of drunk driving after he struck and knocked downa power pole at Ranier Street and Whites Canyon Road.

The power went out at 6:38 a.m. and was restored by 8:20 a.m.

Just another in the long line of examples about how our justice system's leniency towards drunk and unsafe drivers is literally killing us out there.
