What a Freaking idiot. @ 71 it's surprising she's still alive. Lock her up and throw away the key.

About all you can do here is start an "impeach the judges" movement.



Not a bad idea really. Too many judges out there who think the law is merely an appendage of their personal political/social opinions.

I go "what" when I open MO and all the news topics appear to have been clicked on. You know the color has changed.

So I call into work yesterday and ask, "who the F%&K was in my office this afternoon"



Now I need to find out who was in my house last night cause I guess I alread clicked on this topic.

It is kind of weird that W. Va's negligent homicide statute requires proof of "reckless disregard." In Colorado, she would probably have been charged with careless driving resulting in death, which doesn't require such a high showing of intent. It sounds as if its the W.Va. legislature that needs to fix their statutory scheme, not the Court that screwed up.

I always said, if you want to off somebody do it with a car. If you use a gun you go to jail, use the car and it's a big oops. Honey, could you check under the car, I think I hear a funny noise. Ooooops!

Correct! To be picky: "negligent: is a perfect term for this case, since she *neglected* to pay attention. A word like negligent does not imply malicious intent or recklessness, simply that one failed to do something that should be done (in this case, watch the road and pay attention). If you define negligent as "reckless" then you set a higher bar.
