FTFA, "A sixth child was not in the vehicle at the time of the accident "

How does the writer just drop that without saying if the kid is also named John?! Inquiring minds want to know!! We want to know!

Um. Some fathers give their children their last name. Duane John did just that.
 
2013-10-10 06:50:28 PM
So there were 9 people in a Durango if I have this right?
He was overloaded in more ways than one.
 
2013-10-10 06:53:14 PM
It was a fast conviction. The prosecution really struck a personal cord with the jury Foreman.

What a confusing family name. His last name is John, and his wife's last name was Jim. So was his pillow talk "Hey baby, I'd like to snap into your Slim Jim."
 
2013-10-10 06:55:44 PM
Was the last one named shiathead or DelaStone?

The kids' names:

Daisyanna John
Duane John
Bobby John
Quinton John
Kekaimeas John

Replace "John" with "Smith" and see how stupid you sound, subby.  Or maybe you don't know what a last name is.

John Ya-Ya?
John Small Berries?
John Bigbooty??
 
2013-10-10 06:59:21 PM
Umm. 90 years? WTF?

He did something breathtakingly stupid, but there was no intent to deprive of life. Add to that the fact he's got to live with the death of his children and I really don't understand.

Headline is accurate. Misleading? Yes, but that has always been the Farker way.

The Onion is prophetic: Replace "John" with "Smith" and see how stupid you sound, subby. Or maybe you don't know what a last name is.


Actually, you're mistaken.  Those are middle names.  The family's last name was Jim.

Seriously.  Re-read it.

Nope; I'm wrong.  I re-read it.  Jim was his wife's last name.  You're right in that John was his last name.

Jeez, odd surname naming convention.

Jim married John, and Jim's children were Johns.

The sentence is as appropriate as any punishment for such an act could be.

He's a murderer, plain and simple.

Its been my experience that nearly every person that has a "J" name are either nearly all either morons or assholes, sometimes both seldom neither.
 
2013-10-10 07:18:10 PM
If I was DUI and I killed my wife and friggen 5 of my 6 kids, I'd ask for the death penalty and not appeal it. I can't even begin to imagine losing 5 kids and my wife due to my own stupidity.

Driving while drunk is in itself, intent.  You cannot drive drunk & expect to get you or your passengers anywhere in a safe manner.

All nine passengers were members of the Choctaw Tribe and lived on an Indian Reservation in the Pearl River Community. Authorities said they were going to the Conhetta Community, another reservation in Newton County, at the time of the accident.

.

Harris said the jury was made up of African-Americans and Caucasians, men and women. "It was a good mix and not a situation where I could say that it was a lot more of one race or the other," he said.


Were there any Choctaws on the jury?

buzzcut73: So there were 9 people in a Durango if I have this right?

My first thought, since I'm fairly sure the Durango only has 7 seat belts.  I doubt they found a child seat in the truck.  I get seat belts don't help in escaping a sinking car, but it may mean you are conscious and uninjured so an escape is possible.

you_idiot: If I was DUI and I killed my wife and friggen 5 of my 6 kids, I'd ask for the death penalty and not appeal it. I can't even begin to imagine losing 5 kids and my wife due to my own stupidity.


John's wife lived, it was Chickaway's wife who died.  Doing Darwin's work won't mean you get an out of jail card.
 
2013-10-10 07:34:55 PM
When a wrecker service finally pulled the car from the water, the bodies of Diane Chickaway and all five children were still inside. They were pronounced dead at the scene by the Neshboa County Deputy Coroner Marshall Prince.

Imagine being the wrecker taking that call.  How awful.

Yes but he transgressed in the Land of the Free, Limey fruit. He's lucky he didn't get 900 years, that'd have shown him. Now get back to work, subject.

They say weather wasn't a factor yet it had been raining heavily in the days prior to the crash and temps were in the low 20's to upper teens (in the Deep South no less). Also, despite losing his 5 kids and close friend he wasn't offered a plea bargain and was forced to go to trial.

I'm guessing it's tough to be Choctaw in Neshoba County, whether on trial for DUI manslaughter or otherwise.

John, Jim and Dale Chickaway were able to escape the vehicle.

What in the shiat?  They wreck in a creek and only the adult males survive.  This trip was set up to fail
