Well yes, of course. That's why I said that the problem is the application of the law. Prosecutors and cops have discretion in what to charge. As far as we can see (because I agree with you overall) this was not a situation in which charging a crime was appropriate. Now, as you also noted correctly, we don't know more than was reported. Maybe something happened that merits a criminal charge. Don't know.

The way to handle these things when you can't help an incapacitated person yourself is to call on outside help from a social agency. There's no need to do anything that would get you called heartless or a bigot or pig.

We don't know the whole story, and neither does the media.

I know what I would have done in this man's situation. Obviously, he chose differently. If I expressed it here, it would only serve to solidify your opinion of me as a heartless bigot and chauvinist pig. BUT, you'd never read of me on the 'Net or Newspapers, and nobody would be harmed (though they might be privately humiliated).

The saddest thing about this whole situation is, when they convict him - he'll likely serve more time than if he'd killed a Motorcyclist with his car.
I think the whole thing is pretty funny. I just don't know why the govt thinks it has to get involved so much with every odd instance that happens in society. One could easily show that involving the govt is usually the best way to screw things up worse than ever. Listen to it long enough and you might begin to believe all kinds of weird things.

Obviously these two idiots are apparently typical Floridians.... er, I mean a brick short of a full load. But filing criminal charges won't solve anything. If he goes to prison all it will do is take some half-witted loser and turn him into a career criminal. I can't see why the prosecutor has to do anything. He's just doing what they do to anybody who gets caught in the machine of what we laughingly call "justice".... feed the machine.... feed the machine.

Actually, it happened in Kansas! But it sounds like something that would happen here...

Meanwhile we get the a-hole State Reps passing insane laws against riders. The AMA says they'll fight it further on based discrimination. The tool who wanted to ban anyone under 12 from riding on a bike or wave runner emailed to say the legislation had been withdrawn. Maybe his kid asked him to get a bike?

I ride the mentioned bike in the above title. I was wondering if there was anyone in this forum that I could communicate questions and answers w/ regard to this model.
