Had he been talking on a cell phone and/or yelling at unrestrained kids in the backseat like half the people I see driving, he wouldn't have received such a stiff (haha!) sentence. Just because it was porn shouldn't make any difference, and you know it did. It was an accident. He was definitely at fault, I'm not saying he wasn't, but he'll live with his own demons for the rest of his life for killing that woman. I know I would.

OK so it states, that her car was disabled in the passing lane, meaning she was in the roadway, correct? How do you charge someone with manslaughter? Could have happened regardless of what his computer was streaming. How about these GPS systems that people have, cell phones , etc . A distraction is distraction period, that being said if people would just get in their cars/trucks and drive and pay attention to the road instead of all these electronic devices, we would certainly have fewer fatal accidents. That goes for all those ladies out there doing their hair, make up and nails while driving too! OH yeah and leave your house on time so you don't have to speed and drive like a jerk.

This truck driver should not have been watching anything but the road. He is not the only one that does other things while driving. I have seen people putting on make-up, reading the newspaper, texting, eating and drinking just about every day. If your driving that is all you should be doing. No talking on cell phones, texting, reading, eating, drinking or watching tv or computers.

Excuse me, but I am VERY careful when putting my makeup on!

Yeah Michelle he's a "great person" who killed someone because it was more important to be watching porn while driving a big rig than paying attention to the road! You need to take a good look at yourself!

Would never happen. She is smart enough not to put herself in that situation.

You don't make any damn sense. Hurr hurr I think this is a harsh sentence. Maybe you should killed by a truck driver jerking off to porn.

Yes, all great people watch porn on their laptops while operating a moving vehicle. It's the woman's fault for being in his way, right? Retard.
