On probation for DWI, wanted for 3rd drgree assault, presumably a felony and he was still on the street? Good job Tim Dolan! Keep that witch hunt going with Jason Anderson. You're making yourself look pathetic!

How is it Tim Dolan's fault when this guy was from, and committed crimes, in other counties?

They used to have more patrols in that area. A known high crime area, previous administrations coordinated saturation patrols to stay on top of gangs and their usual wares of violence, drug and gun distributorships etcetera. Dolan, on the other hand is focusing on the "Glorified Tax Collector" (speeding tickets) mode for quite a while now.

Multiple-charges-loser kills a productive, taxpaying citizen again, then takes off running. Awesome. I am not without sympathy for drinking problems, but sailing through a stop sign at 60 mph in a 30 mph zone, drunk and probably high, when you are already on probation. yeah, that'll have negative consequences more often than not.

I feel for the Johnson family who lost a loved one, and for the research unit who lost a good colleague. Peace to you all, and may the driver's father heal quickly.
