I am not justifying his behavior at all! It was wrong. So, if you are wising for death, BOOM it is done. And he took Officer Johnson, a highly decorated and respected officer with him. Officer Jonson was not that far from home when it occured.
His life is gone as well an inocent man. I hope you research you information before proposing he has a life expiriencing moment in an airplane. They died instantly.
My nephew did wrong. He made the wrong choices, and that is to be sure. I guess with what you wrote, he is probably for sure roasting in hell as we speak. You did not know my nephew and the years before it happened. Be sure that my nephew was in hell when everything happened.
Hell, if he has a choice he probably would have gladly jumped out of that airplane sans parachute before having that accdent.
Get your facts togather
"Get your facts together"? OK.....I hope Tory doesn't mind me speaking here since Mare was speaking to him, but I cannot help it....

Fact #1 - "The Douglas County Sheriff's Office said they've had numerous issues with Edwards Jacobs"

Fact #2 - "Authorities said they received a 911 call from someone who spotted Jacobs' car weaving." In case you do not know what they mean by "weaving", that means he was all over the road like a drunk, putting dozens of innocent lives on the line.

Fact #3 - "Officers followed him for a while. Jacobs took off when deputies attempted to pull him over."

Fact #4 - "The collision killed both men" It is one thing when someone who is ASKING for death due to stupidity, but when they take an innocent life(ves) and YOU defend him?!?!

This kid and people like him should use his brain like people on the Golden Gate Bridge. Hardly anyone will notice them on the edge, they jump, and us taxpayers don't have to waste our time and money waiting for it to happen and cleaning things up.

Running from the law seems to be a game young adults play. They need to know it's wrong and dangerous. Parents maybe should talk to their kids and teach them that it's just stupid to run. They'll get caught eventually, may take years, but someday they will get caught and the charges will be more stiff.

He also was in the system here on many occasions. He's habitual from what I understand.

I support any one that served. But, I don't support people that take others lives in vain.

just because he served in the army does not give him a pass to break any law, in my opinion he does not deserve to be buried with military honors.

My point is labeling him as a punk or habitual law breaker is short sighted. Especially since he was only 21 and had already served in the military, and had been to Iraq. I don't know this person personally, but this is a mixed message. Risk your life to save others, then take a life and your own because of a bad decision...we won't ever know what he was thinking. All I (or we) really know for sure is that he made one bad decision - to get behind the wheel after drinking.

Having served over 20yrs myself, I can assure you there are "punks" in the military. I can just point to the one in the prison scandal in Iraq. Now you all know I do not agree with these high speed chases except for truly violent crime, but this loder is still a punk. Had he just pulled over 2 people would be alive, we would not be having this conversation.

Good grief. What he does after his military career does not affect the service you did. Maybe they should just put him an unmarked grave as punishment for his crime. I think you and President Obama will be more than happy to restart the Gestapo.

That fallen officer's family deserves a monetary settlement. He lost his life. He deserves a settlement from the sheriff's office and from the estate of the suspect.
He would deserve it even if he weren't police, but you might be surprised at how many ppl (especially Georgians) disagree with that.

I am not sure Tory. While you would just want to throw some scum like you mentioned above in a landfill, can you take away some heroic deeds they performed while serving? I need to think on that.

any thoughts yet, I mean that is a good few hours now to decide whether an ex soldier, who since serving or before serving was found to have been a child sex offender should be buried with full military honors?

I am surprised it has taken you so long to come to any decision.:-) but then maybe I am not ........
