Should someone who is texting and causes a deadly accident be charged with murder? And before you ask, YES I think they should , there has NEVER been a text that was that big of an emergency!

Should someone be charged with murder when they are changing the radio station and cause a fatal accident? Or how about talking on a cell phone? Or eating a burger n driving? Or how about someone has a diabetic attack n cause a fatal accident when they knew they were a diabetic before they got in the car? No they shouldn't.... It's called a accident for a reason... I bet ur guilty of looking away from the road when ur cell phone rings to look and see who's calling and to answer it. No one intentionally causes a "accident". Murder is a intentional act.

Should someone who's been drinking and driving that causes a fatal "accident" be charged with murder?? Yes because it's ILLEGAL. So is texting and driving. So I believe that YES someone who causes a fatal accident cause they're texting and driving should be charged with murder.

Driving is a privilege, not a right. I suggest you position and make changes to your vehicle before you put it into drive i.e. radio, mirrors, whatever..
Yes! An accident is an accident that cannot be helped or is out of your control. Changing your station, slapping at your kids, or anything to do with a cell phone is NOT an accident. Those are things that can be prevented. Seizures, diabetic attacks n whatnot should be taken seriously. If you are aware you have these conditions take proper precautions before you hit the road or don't drive. A person that doesnt intentionally cause harm to another but has an "accident" can be chared with manslaughter. There's a difference if you can read definitions. You're barking up the wrong tree here if you're wanting someone to side with your boneheaded ramble.

I do think manslaughter should be the charge and not murder. Regardless, the texter/driver should be held accountable.

I know two people who have seizures, but don't report the seizures because they don't want their driving privileges revoked. That's dangerous and reckless.

Really? You are going to compare a health emergency that no one has any control over to texting, wow you are a dumbass. I guess you text and drive, hopefully if you ever cause an accident I will get to sit on your jury! No, I do NOT answer calls when driving! Hopefully laws will be passed that insurance will not cover you or your car in this type of situation , oh, but wait, you probably do not have insurance. Remember Karma.

Driving knowing that you have a dangerous medical condition is definitely reckless and irresponsible.

And a person who desperately needs to make a living to support himself and or a family would probably view cutting his own throat and giving up his driving privileges of his own free will to be irresponsible and reckless.Not gonna ask holly because self-righteous unsweetened judgment is what she specializes in,,,but did "you" consider that it might be easier said than done in some circumstances???
And if it was you yourself having seizures,,,would you hurry to the court-house and inform them that they needed to hustle up and revoke your driving privileges???

This is a prime example of how you follow me from thread to thread with your negative comments.

But, since you brought it up: the guy with the medical condition should find someone else to drive him to work. Or a job he can walk to. Or do from home. Or go on disability. Etc. Etc. Your narrow view of an either/or situation is just short sighted.

Was probably two years ago, at the Etown Walmart, got out of the car, and stopped as this girl passed me with her head down staring at her phone and then she turned right into a cart stall. Granted, there was a SUV right in front of the thing and wasn't the easiest too see that it was a stall not a parking spot, but had she not been paying attention to her phone she probably would have seen it. Anyways, gave me a good laugh (thankfully it was a stall and not somebodies kids) but yeah, paying attention to things other then the road and driving, and wrecking should carry some heavy punishments, since it was easily preventable and now somebodies family member(s) might be dead.

FYI yes! I would in fact revoke my own privileges from driving if someone else's life could be at stake.

After I comment, you always completely destroy someone's genuine post. You make the thread about me. Just as you did here and 100 other times.

I'm not "o wow" goofball. Where did that even come from? You're the poster of many names. Now, go jiggle Becky's thighs a while and stop stalking me.

Well,Owow has strong enough of a self-righteous overbite to be you,and quick enough at stroking her own agenda to be you,,,so I'm gonna believe that Owow is you as well.
Watcha think???
Oh,tried that thigh jiggling thing.Got shot down due to headache stress and other miscellaneous ailments,,,so thanks for nothing.

You can believe that. He/she hasn't said anything I'm opposed to yet.

I've figured out your game. Anytime a poster other than you or me posts, you think it's me. You know the 100+ names you've used. so, in the rare instance that someone other than the two of us posts here, you think it's me
