so, the big discussion here at work today, is a debate about the lawyer that was drunk... hit a girl who was crossing out of the crosswalk (who also had been drinking), parked his car two blocks away, walked home, did not call 911. the girl died.

okay. i think the lawyer should fry, personally. he's a freaking lawyer, he KNOWS he's going to get caught, why not call for help? there were no skid marks, which means that he didn't even brake after hitting the girl.

half the department is arguing that she was drunk, that she stepped into the street outside of a crosswalk, taking her own life in her hands.

the other half argues that sure, she was drinking, but she was drinking and WALKING, not drinking and DRIVING.

ah, well. it's in the past... doesn't matter what we exactly we think about it, it's done and over with and for the jury to decide.

and for him to live with for the rest of his life.

sounds like an episode of Law & Order, except the lawyer drove home with the person stuck in the windshield and tried to help them while also creating an alibi. Because of his actions not involving emergancy professionals, the person died and suddenly he was being jailed for murder-1.

... and the man was suicidal but that didn't matter since the lawyer's actions, not his ultimately determined his fate.

Hmm, maybe this was CSI instead of L&O. I watch too many of these investigation dramas :)

*vigorous nod* regardless if the other girl had been drinking as well or not.

she was walking, though, and not driving, right?


if so, she could have had 90% alcohol to blood and it shouldn't matter.

Re:
*nod* that was my thoughts exactly, and yes, she was on foot, he was the idiot behind the wheel.

very sad :-(
Maybe she wouldn't have died if she had gotten medical care immediately instead of just lying on the road bleeding to death :-(

Unless I create my time machine and go back, then we will know...
