But run over someone while drunk, on a suspended license, & walk out ov jail with a little citation.
Those other 3 states are nuts for not having a basic vehicular homicide law, & so is Oregon. Why would such a proposed common sense law NOT even make it to a vote?! Who's against this?
Merc, please follow-up!
I don't have the gory details on exactly how the cars hit Crawford's body, but yes, they were one right after the other, heading in the same direction.
RE: Why Feliciano hasn’t been charged, police spokeswoman Mary Wheat says police cannot cite or charge drivers at the scene unless there’s probably cause to make an arrest, such as if the driver is clearly intoxicated. Wheat says the officers involved are finishing up the investigation (as of today, Friday 11/13) and the case could be sent over to the District Attorney’s office for review.
That's funny because, pedestrians can be cited (& extorted for money by the city) on the spot for jay-walking, even if you cross a street at a time when there's no immediate on-coming traffic.
My friend is lucky, but there are those that won't be. When is the state going to step up and do something about this before more people get hurt?
