namatad: why wasnt she charged with reckless driving and homicide?


I'm guessing it's because (inferring from the article) her boyfriend on the motorcycle hit the bicyclist, throwing her into the path of the car. Little Ms. Suck It may not have been able to avoid hitting her in the best of circumstances.

Fleeing the scene, though, that's a crime she should also be charged with.

also
why wasnt she charged with reckless driving and homicide?
why was she released? without bail??

I guess she needs to kill a few more people before she is taken off the street. WHY is vehicular manslaughter so rarely charged? "she was old and drove through the farmers market. it wasnt her fault."

sethstorm: The more reason to make criminal records auto-expunge(but not any reporting for sex crimes) after time has been served. Time done, corrective action performed, get on with life without businesses being able to refuse


Sure, as soon as she does her time and her victim is made whole we'll gladly wipe the slate clean.

Well, except for the whole HER VICTIM IS FARKING DEAD part.

I actually differ from most of my conservative brethren in that I support the immediate restoration of civil rights upon reaching end of sentence for most crimes. Not expunging the record because a significant number will re-offend and that history is important, but otherwise remove many of the barriers to rejoining society but not in cases where the victim dies.

She was driving drunk and killed someone. There is no corrective action that will atone. The fact that she's allowed to continue breathing air is bordering on too much mercy. Not only should her record never be expunged, she should be ineligible for any social assistance at all. Not one freaking penny. Living in a box under a bridge eating out of restaurant dumpsters is still better than what her victim got.

As someone who sees things from both sides such as the judge I would like to see this story also from two sides upon which one side is that yes this is the stupid thing to do and the other side of this is perhaps there is the reason for doing this.

You see you might wish to say to the self of you HELLO SELF OF ME IF I CAUSE THE DEATH OF THE OTHER I SHOULD NOT ADVERTISE THIS UPON FACEBOOK. The reasons for this include that you might end up on the Fark.com website which to 9 of 10 people who wind up here either in the article or especially as the poster means you will not ever have the sexing again. Also it is something upon which the prosecutor attorney of the district might say to the jury to view with the consideration of the facts of the case. Also the encouragement of she could lead to the widespread outbreak of the STD diseases if people take this literally of her.

The other side of this says listen if the public of the locality will do the judging of you in some way then it is best to do all upon which you can to taint the jury pool in the area and also to get the revenge on the haters of the area through the remarkable penmanship of you. This could be the opening sentence to the next great autobiography and I do not wish to take this from she. Also some people apologize in the ways that others would find to be surprising. Perhaps this is the way in which she knows how to do the apology.

The moral of the story of this is that you should not judge the book by the cover or the person by the Facebook posting because mark the words of me she will claim someone did the account hacking.

evil saltine: Assuming you don't know that Facebook doesn't actually "delete" anything and will hand all your stuff over to the court on demand.


To the court, not the newspaper. It doesn't matter if the court knows every single bug you've ever stepped on, it might not come up. But the instant the media gets a crack in the ice, they'll sink your ship before it's even had a chance to sail a meter out of port.

Imagine for a minute if Casey Anthony really is innocent. Imagine her life now. She's been raped by the media. It's over. And either way the cookie crumbles her kid's gettin' no justice. The media farked that up, too.

Basically, the for profit media are the enemy. Of you, of me, of justice, of all that's right in the world. Don't give them any mud to sling or any muck to rake.

"Megan Merkel was driving drunk at 7:45 A.M"- lack of responsibility "her recently paroled boyfriend" - Poor decision making skills "I was sure as hell not being a reckless driver and what happened I couldn't help" - Admission of guilt. Yes a valuable member of society she is not. My prediction is that she will be found not guilty in the death but guilty of DWI she will have to pay a fine, probation and community service. She will become pregnant by this guy before he ends up in jail and she will have the child then not be able to support it so she will turn to welfare. The DWI on her record will force who to get a low paying job so she will have to get government assisted living. She will spend her life poor and have a few baby daddies turn to alcohol and or drug abuse. She will have at least three kids all will become pregnant or get someone pregnant before the age of 16.

I would really like to know what those 8 comments said.

Well you're in luck. In the comments section of the article from the local newspaper, someone posted a screen shot of the Facebook page. You can see some of the comments. She clarifies her "get the real facts straight" part by adding "She got hit by the bike and went on front of the car I was driving, she got ran over and uk the rest". Other than that, it's mostly people saying that they hope she is ok - one of them is telling her to get sober.

Bonus: There is a picture of this chick that shows her holding a beer the night before the accident. The time stamp says it was posted 22 hours ago and the time stamp on the "suck a dick" status is 2 hours ago

JC22: Don't be so sure that she'll be brought up on DWI charges for killing the woman.

Something similar happend with Donte Stallworth (now yes, he has lots of money and is/was an NFL star for a time).

He was driving impaired when a man stepped out in front of his car and he couldn't avoid him. The judge basically said that there was no way, even sober that Donte could have avoided him due to the proximity of where the guy walked in front of his car.

Same thing will most likely happen here. If it shows she had no way to avoid the biker who was HIT into the road by the guy on the motorcycle...sober or not... then she will just get charged with DWI.


Wow, you couldn't have messed that up much more.

No judge said he could avoid the incident even if sober. Stallworth was charged with and pleaded guilty to what Florida calls DUI Manslaughter - a felony.

He got a month in the county jail and 8 years probation. He could have got 15 years, but the prosecution cut him a plea deal based on the wishes of the victim's family.

He also settled with the victim's family (after he got out of jail) for an undisclosed amount. You can be certain it was a very large amount.

No, I'm just kidding. They're not all like that. Maybe 15-17%, tops. Possibly as low as 5%.

As they say in New York City "A lot of fine people upstate, where ever the Hell that is."

But I would know. The only time I've ever been to New York is when my family accidentally drove through the Bronx on the way to Florida. More black people than Nairobi. Not a white face for miles and miles. That was quite the experience. Some of those tenements look like Dante's Hell, with windows.

According to my link above, this will be #2. She was on parole for stealing a credit card when she beat some guy up and stole a TV. Got a year in jail out of it. The more I hear of her, the more I realize how bad of a person she really is. Not that he's any better, with having a six year long rap sheet six years from when he can start having a rap sheet.

Not matter what she gets a hit and run.

My final guess is: Involuntarily Manslaughter, DWI, Hit and Run.
She'll probably get 25-30 years and do about 8-10 of them in prison.

American Taxpayer: Million in paper work, court costs and prosecution. Eight to ten years of inmate holding then the subsequent welfare for a felon as she will not be able to find any sort of good work the rest of her life. She'll probably now be in and out of prison for the rest of her life -- and god help us all if she gets pregnant.

Fleeing the scene is a misdemeanor at best, since the person died, probably a felony. DWI and committing a felony is another felony.

It's hard to say whether she would have driven more safely (not in parallel with wheelie-boyfriend) if she had been sober, but I"m guessing most juries will find her intoxication a factor in her ability to drive safely (driving alongside someone doing repeated wheelies is not safe). A responsible person would have refused to drive with wheelie-boyfriend.

Also, had her reflexes been better and her attention more focused, she would have seen the accident about to happen, slam on her brakes and the dead woman would only have hit pavement - not been run over by her.

DWI/DUI complicates everything here, as does running away.

I'm assuming here... not a lawyer, not a drunk driver.

AFAIK that's not true. If someone else definitely caused the accident, your drunkenness isn't their 'get out of jail free' card, at least from a criminal perspective.

Of course you're stuck with the DUI either way and I don't know how it works with insurance. You might be out a bunch of money.

This happened in our area, and I have friends in the cycling community who knew the victim well. The details of the accident were so horrible that it made me nauseous. This facebook post only proves what I originally thought of this dirtbag. She (and her a$$hole boyfriend: may he ROT in jail, with his new boyfriend Bubba) are A) Stupid B) Childish and C) Selfish. If she had a shred of decency, she would be publicly begging for the forgiveness of the family that she DESTROYED.

It could be argued that it really wasn't her fault. Her shiat-ass boyfriend was the one who knocked the woman off her bike, then she didn't have time to react. Problem is, she was drunk too, and ran away from the scene. Killed a woman, then bailed on it, then fronts about it on Facebook.

I worked a case like this once in the state senate, where a developmentally disabled mother was killed in a DUI hit and run, but the county DA didn't want to bother prosecuting because it wasn't high-profile enough for him. And like this case, the woman at fault loudly and publicly proclaimed her innocence, which only made it worse for herself.

She eventually served five years for vehicular homicide.

True - she possibly missed the negligent homicide (well depending on how the law is written), but probably will be charged with some serious offenses: fleeing the scene - a felony in NY if it results in a death, reckless driving, etc etc etc.

So just looking up some background here: Route 250 is apparently a flat, straight country road through the northern half of Penfield (about a 2-1/2 mile stretch in town). It's got a dotted middle line (i.e, passing allowed), with what looks like at least a bike's width of shoulder outside of the travel lanes. In other words, most likely a speed zone.

We know she went drinking the night before. We know her boyfriend has been convicted of DWI, and that apparently he was showing off, most likely to remind her of how awesome he is. We know he hit the bike, and she was going too fast to stop. (And if you want to include the bonus from upthread, someone even told her to "get sober" in response to her stupid comment, which a good prosecutor would take as an invitation to ask said poster to elaborate upon in court.)

Is she really is that much of a vapid, ignorant trailer trash moran that she doesn't think she's legally screwed? She's about to see how life was for her boyfriend, who may not even survive to offer her moral support and a conjugal visit.
