Good Day,

Seems a bit lenient huh? Blame Granholm. If you remember she has been trying to reduce the prison population and therefore crimes like this will carry lenient sentences as she wants to "save money" from the prison system for her pet social programs. Keep in mind that corrections eats up about 50% of the Michigan budget. And also that Michigan has I think either the highest or second highest per capita prison population. It is all about the $.

I remember one time I was on a roof installing shingles, I said "hey can you hand me that box of nails" and they did. I took a nail out of the box and then hit my thumb on the first swing and then fell off the roof. I then thought that person handed me the box of nails drank a couple beers for lunch. What a jerk he handed me the box the wrong way and it was his fault I hit my thumb. One more thing to add here I may have spelled a word wrong I guess that means I must be a moron. To all those true idots that think that matters if a word is spelled wrong and is very important to state that fact on a reply. You are a Loser and that was with a Capitol Loser. Yuck fou oops I may have spelled a word or two wrong you spleaf. Also It is your fault I choked on the chicken sandwich because I was reading that I spelled a word wrong you Loser.

To blame someone for the actions of another. He is only guilty of hitting the car he did not make that dude get out of his car to inspect the damage he did not make that other person hit him while in the road he is not guilty of a chain reaction. His is guilty of DUI which resulted in a collision. Plain and simple the other driver was careless driving and did not have her car under control. Who is she? that actually ran into the person. She is to blame whats her name?

To Jason: To say that it is the drunk drivers fault for the chain reaction. That is like saying it is your fault because your are a homosexual and that is why the accident happened and not because of the person driving the car that hit him.

like i said before the news and the paper have misled the story and left things out and got some things wrong. the second car was a total accident in fact that accident happened with in matter of minutes of the first accident but since the begining its been who to charge who to blame but the drunk driver was a minor with priors no license do to wrecklessness and stupidity not for failure to pay a parking ticket that the second car did. things came out in court i didnt know about but it was the prosacutor to determine who to charge and seeing his actions started the chain of events he was the one charged. its tricky and because there has never been a accident to this matter in the united states there was thin lines on how to proceed we are in the process of changing some laws in case this happens again but seeing its a election year most dont care. but its done its over with i can move on and start to have closure. but i can defend myself and john all day but its so hard to because like i said the news and the press have gotten things mixed up go figure right.
