That sounds like sentence stacking, rather than three strikes. If each sentence got him roughly 25 years (and make no mistake, depending on the drug, it could), then it is sadly justified. The same thing would happen if one to accidently hit 4 people in a car. Manslaughter for each one would put you away for life, and I feel that is correct, as you ended the lives of 4 people.

Plato once said there was a perfect form of everything -- a perfect dog, a perfect chair, a perfect man -- and that everything was a shadow of this one perfect form. Now, if we follow this line of thinking, that means that somewhere in the universe there is the perfect form of the perfect, absolute and complete idiot, and he left here an hour ago.
