Our justice system leaves much to be desired.

This dirt bag kills an innocent rider while $hit faced, and they start dropping charges against him instead of throwing the book at the BUM.

I say hang him along side a certain South Dakota politico.

Do it in Florida, they'll drop the charges.

"driving under the influence with serious bodily injury."

--Anyone care to explain to me why this was dropped?

" ... but is no longer charged with driving with a suspended license or driving under the influence with serious bodily injury."

.

Yes, that's right. Afterall, how can you cause "serious bodily injury" when instead you KILL THE GUY?

Can you give me some fishing time before the obvious satire of the post sinks in.

I believe that the assistant prosecutor who had been working that aspect of the B - L case was re-assigned farther south in Florida to help with the A - N - S case.



Obviously there's a shortage of lawyers in Florida. Imports are arriving daily from Texas, California, and the Bahamas.

Default Whoa Nellie!

Before everyone runs out to buy rails, tar, feathers, assorted ropes (used I hope), cyanide, pasteboard (to make signs) and kegs of beer... on second thought, go ahead and get the kegs of beer.... you'll note that BillyBoy is still charged with DUI Manslaughter.



This is just fine with me. I don't believe in calling the same act a bunch of different crimes. That's always stunk of double jeopardy to me. Like when the Rodney King cops got off so the Feds retried them a second time for the same act but just called it something else. That's double jeopardy. I don't give a shyt how many Judges find specious reasons to justify that injustice.

Maybe for the same reason that attempted murder charges have to be dropped if the victim dies?
