Just to let you know, I thought I'd e-mailed the Democrat article to TABI,
but it hasn't made it there yet.  Don't know why.

I just can't get over an article in today's Democrat: a short summary of it
is that Willy Megs (the State's Attorney), has decided not to file any
charges against the driver of an automobile who hit and killed a teenaged
driver, when she ran a red light speeding 20 MPH above the limit.  The
incident occurred in May.
The facts of the light being red and the driver speeding aren't being
disputed; Willy Megs however justified his decision by saying "We all speed
and we all run red lights."
This is absolutely unbelievable to me!  This says to me, drivers, it's open
season, whatever you do, it's going to be ok, because we all do it!  
This is especially bad news for pedestrians, who are in much greater danger
from drivers, and I suppose are covered under this blanket decision not to
prosecute if one should be killed.
If time allows I'll get the text of the article and post it.  I just can't
get over it though: no matter how badly a person is driving, we can't expect
anything to happen to them (unless it's a ticket; then, the city and county
and state need the money!)
