fusillade762: In the video, you can see Brown, who was running from police for a suspected seatbelt violation

You highlight "seatbelt violation" like it's some trivial crime. Not wearing your seatbelt can get you killed.

The video clearly shows the man being sucked into a wormhole just nanoseconds before the car could ram him at speed. Obviously, the extraplanar entities that killed him just deposited his body under the car moments (though who can say how time works in their realm?) later. Turn this one over to the X-Files.

Gyrfalcon: Hm, I'm not sure who's the person to blame here.

After all, the cop is now a FORMER DeLand police officer--he's not working as a cop anymore, and since he was a rookie, his legal costs may not have been covered by the union, so if his family needs to raise money to cover his defense, that's up to them.

The victim's family took a half-million dollar settlement with the police department (which proves nothing); but if there's a villain here, it's the medical examiner's office and the DA who declined to press charges in the case. I mean, the cop could hardly come out and say "No no, I think you should press charges against me, it was clearly a case of vehicular homicide." It's up to the DA to decide whether to press charges or not--and it's up to the medical examiner to determine how and why a person died. It was the ME's office that determined the victim didn't die by being struck by a car, which would have led the DA to decide not to file charges. Which makes zero sense, since that would mean the guy just up and died, or as we used to say DFO'd.

Cop hate may be misplaced in this one. I think what's wanted here is a double helping of lawyer and bureaucrat hate.

Why you always up so late?

Befuddled: FTA: However, the drawing for the winning raffle ticket was held on a pontoon boat, out of the sight of spectators, under the Whitehair Bridge on the St. Johns River in DeLand.

Organizers briefly addressed the small crowd from their pontoon boat, telling them that they would call the winner.

Sounds like a scam.

Yeah, if your draw is held under a bridge, you just might be a troll.
