"...both Bradshaw and Brown are facing charges of vehicular homicide - Brown because prosecutors say she knew or should have known that Bradshaw was in no condition to drive."

This always annoys me.  If she's so drunk that she chooses not to drive, how is she supposed to be clear-thinking enough to consider "Wait a sec. I wonder if my boyfriend is also drunk. Perhaps I should prevent him from driving until such time as he can clearly indicate his sobriety" ?  At least she didn't try to drive herself, which is an improvement over most drunk driving morans.

This is like one of those questions our criminal law professor would ask back in school.

The answer is no, he's not an accomplice.

But that doesn't change the reality that prosecutors need to be elected, and to do that they need to get their names in the paper.

There were victims lying in the street in front of him, and yet there was no action to help them instead of shielding the drunken bozos (strangers, at that) that did the crime.


As a bystander you can't leave the scene of an accident, but you can stand there and twiddle your thumbs if you want.

I didn't know anyone outside of lawmakers and the courts used the word "flee" anymore. Run the fark away, maybe...But "FLEE, DUDE, FLEE!!!" just sounds stupid.

A dumb thing to say, but hardly seems to rise to the level of a crime.  With such a low threshold, we'd have a whole lot of Farkers in jail already.

If the guy then went to someone else and told them to jump off a bridge and they did it, would he be guilty of manslaughter too?

The guy probably said something like "You better get out of here man"

That neither answers my question, nor sheds any new light on your opinion.

Some people are brought up to fear authority. To mistrust the police. To assume that nothing good comes of any encounter with the cops.

This boy had compassion. Unfortunately it was for the people he urged to get out of there.

jaylectricity: factoryconnection: It is sad the lack of compassion that is demonstrated here, that instead of "WTF, you just ran over these guys!" he instead went with "Screw them, haul ass!"

Lack of compassion? Or primal fear of authority?


Both of these and I'll add 'being shiatfaced drunk' to the list.
