    Maybe you couldn't.
    Doesn't change the fact that it was still an accident.
    Which was used as comparison to another crime that involved direct and deliberate intent to cause a person harm.

    It is very sad that you continue with that meme even though the facts don't support it.

    While she did run a stop sign and t-bone a car killing the driver, the part about the "fit of range" is just silly conspiracy theory bull crap. It assumes the least supported by evidence, least likely explanation to what happened is the real answer.

    In reality a young kid was driving way too fast on a road at night and missed a stop sign. It happens all the time.

    That doesn't mean that she shouldn't have been charged with an offense, though.. you just ruin your own argument by taking it deep into the stupid for no reason.

    The woman who ran a stop sign at 17 and killed a classmate was Laura Bush, not her mother-in-law Barbara. http://www.nytimes.com/2010/04/28/bo...aura.html?_r=0

    Laura Bush, of course, was not drinking, which makes this a tragic accident, unlike the manslaughter that is being discussed in this thread.

    The worst part is that neither the father, nor his son, showed absolutely any remorse at all, which is why this guy should have gone to prison for a very, very long time. Instead, he will get to live his life richly, after serving a short term term at an upscale multi-millionaires only rehab center, paid for with the half a million bucks his father is giving them.

    Yes, folks. Money DOES buy justice these days. But, if there is justice in this world, his father will no longer be part of the 1%, since it was one of his company trucks his son was driving when he snuffed out all those lives. The 15 or more lawsuits that will undoubtedly be filed against him will take care of that. Sad to say, though, it won't bring back any of those people his son killed, or repair any of the damage to the 11 who survived but are now crippled for life. In the end, we can only hope that this family learns what it is like to be poor, after becoming poor themselves.

    Article is here.
    Was there any doubt that this is a class system with the elite rich on the top and everyone else being walked over? This is exactly what the single party system is established to create, duh.

    You comment is nonsensical, as that is not the case in this situation.

    It's not nonsensical. DWI resulting in fatality is severely punished these days, people get 20+ years even though it is an accident. This case 4 people were killed, had the kid not been from a rich family he wouldn't have just gotten probation. Duh.
