Invertebrate? You're aware humans are vertebrates -- oh, I get it, you're saying he's spineless. Because of the drinking.

Lost a friend in Tucson in the late 90's in a similar event. Just shy of her PhD, out jogging with her baby in the stroller. Hit and run driver killed her, baby somehow survived.

Damn.

It was at that moment i decided to tell her I was not, in fact, a marine biologist

AbiNormal: Drunk drivers should be executed on the spot.


While I agree with the sentiment, obviously no.

But they should lose their license for life on first offense.
And make it a federal crime so the ban applies in every state.

Want people to stop dui? That's the way.

Nope.   Mandatory lifetime trying to make up for the loss.  Never succeeding, of course, but trying like hell.

Because no one ever drove without a license.

So wait if she was the person who had homelessness and not the much education this would be the different issue of things? That provides to me MADDness!

I believe they should be given a speedy and fair trial.  Then executed.

/Emphasis on the speedy.  If we can get it over before daybreak, good.

People who are good at college don't deserve to die.

Hit and run drivers are lower than low.  Cowards.
 
2014-03-31 10:25:48 PM  
What a tragedy for everyone involved.

My sincere condolences to her family and friends.

Why? Do you have an emergency sea basin investigation to conduct?

She'll never get to experience the disappointment of not finding a job in the highest unemployed science major.

Eloquent lawyer, tho: "was aware immediately afterwards that he had just been in an accident and was very, very scared for that very reason, and he panicked," Bjorgaard said. "If there's any way he could undo the decision he'd made, he'd undo it in a heartbeat."  "The emotions that have gone through this boy since this happened have been enormous," Bjorgaard said. "And a lot of tears have been shed by him and those around him over what's happened and their feelings toward the Grinder family and the community."

Court records show Powers has a juvenile record has been on intensive probation.

What does being a PhD student have to do with anything?   If it made you immune from death, I imagine everyone would be applying to doctoral programs.  Eventually the darkness comes for all of us and this is just how the story ended for this particular girl.  She wasn't the only one.  About 155,000 other people on this earth woke up for the last time yesterday.

A girl in highschool I knew crossed the street and got hit by a drunk driver. The trick is she did that "Cars have to stop when I'm in the crosswalk" bs. So even if he wasn't drunk she would have died anyway.

It's not bs, just stupid.  Yes, you have the right of way, but you also get to die while the driver gets mild injuries only.  (Except psychological ones.  Kids running across streets petrify me.  Yes, I know they're being idiots, and it's their own fault.  I also know I'd feel horrible if I hit one.)

I hear Moochie Obama is a lawyer, so yeah, you have a point.

She didn't do DUI, just hospital work, like patient dumping.

Why, oh why, didn't this happen to someone with a plain old degree.
