I guess we all know what will happen to the FSU student that ran over the woman 
in the wheel chair. I don't understand it either?????

  Subject: [tabi] unbelievable!

  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 

  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!)
