Dont forget the Jury too... In all of my DWI cases that have gone to trial (3 of about 50), the Defense Attorney instructs the Suspect not to speak, and then says the slurred speech on the video is the Suspects normal speach pattern... Jury believes them, and that evidence is lost. All they have to rely on is the video, which the Defense Attorney blames the wind as an excuse for their poor innocent client to sway or loose balance during the tests, and the late hour as an excuse for the lethargic actions seen on video. Juries eat it up when someone makes the big scarry cops look bad, no matter how polite and professional they act.But, drinking and driving will never be taken serous, most all the judges and the law makers are drinkers.
My prayers go out to the family. It is so sad when lives are lost like this.
Any one who kills someone while driving drunk is guilty of second degree murder!4:Sad news.
A vehicle is just as deadly as a gun in the hands of a irresponsible person, but yet there is no outcry to prevent these needless deaths caused by drunk driving.
That is very common. I have been on a jury twice and there is always one or two bleeding hearts.I was on a jury on a drunk driving case. I was elected the foreman. I thought it was a slam dunk case. One woman said we were going to destroy his life and refused to vote guilty. Didn't matter about the life she destroyed.
That is really what we are up against... Morons. :evil:I was on a jury on a drunk driving case. I was elected the foreman. I thought it was a slam dunk case. One woman said we were going to destroy his life and refused to vote guilty. Didn't matter about the life she destroyed.
+1. Very nicely put, and I agree 100%.Sounds like he led an amazing life. Many live their lives and don't accomplish near what this fine man apparently did. I didn't know him, but they say the "masterpiece" you paint in your life becomes apparent quickly when you are called home. Tragic as his passing at such a young age is, the legacy of his life will I'm sure live on. Prayers to the family and friends and may they find peace in remembering all the better times.
