Just because you are on the "legal" side of the fog line does not mean you will not be dead when someone drifts onto the shoulder and hits you. I understand how you could hit something at two in the morning and not see it. What I don't understand is how, after they locked up Female Hunt a few years back, could anyone not go back and check to see what they hit.

I agree samiam. Did this old guy ride his wheelchair all the way down from Ukiah? Is there bus service that late? Confusing. I think that they should crack down more on motorized wheelchairs on the highway. It's not safe and even in the day time sometimes you don't see them.

Did no one see him leave or see him on the highway? Should have restrained him and called 911. A dark wheelchair on the highway at 3:00am with a possible drunk driver! Lucky no one else was hurt or killed.

I don't remember the article saying anything about his status. You see how this racism thing works Ten? You see a Hispanic last name and automatically assume unlicensed, drunk, illegal alien. You don't have to be a liberal to see it, you just have to be willing to open your eyes.

A concerned casino security guard placed a call to the sheriffs office to ask for assistance for the man in a wheelchair. The assistance was refused by a sheriff employee.

As you are aware casino security works inside the casino, they have no authority outside of it. It's the sheriff's office who enforces the laws within the county limits and are there to provide assistance to the people. So they say.
that is why

the casino should have called him a taxi...I don't think it's the Sheriff's responsibility to drive people home from the bars. How did he get to the casino in the first place?

Okay Drunkinracistslumlordten now try to follow me. If his last name was Chen, Wilson, or Arnold there would be no suggestion of checking on his status. The fact that he saw a hispanic last name and assumed drunk, illegal, and unlicensed...oh whatever...I'm a liberal, I'm stupid, I'm a racist. I give up. You are just way too infatuated with your ignorance to ever see someone elses point of view. I'll continue to call you on your b s but other than that I will leave you to your cowardly, hateful existance.

if someone mentions that a person with a hispanic name that kills someone and then runs is POSSIBLY a illegal DOES NOT make them a racist. statisicly it could be a fact. i suppose if i state that i want the borders secured also makes me a racist according. and you still dont what race i am. you probably dont think there are any racist black people i suppose. and i will continue to call you on your stupid liberal attitude

He ran for the same reason Tony Farrington's ex-fiance 'Shelly' Female Hunt ran. Sure didn't take Tony long to drop her eh? Hard to run for assembly with that kind of baggage. sam - do you recall what kind of time, if any, she ever served?

Could Herrera have been charged because of racial profiling as they looked at the list of cars that had the same tire marks as the treads in the dirt?

Yeah, so much for standing by your loved-ones during times of trouble huh?
That death was an extremely unfortunate accident.
I think she did something like 8 months for hit and run. Not stopping was a very poor decision.
As I recal not one single person questioned her citizenship.

A vehicle registration should be mandatory for all these people who want to drive their wheel chairs on the highway. Insurance and a drivers liscence as well.They should have headlights and tail lights and a seat belt. Or maybe they should try staying off the highway.

key word here num nuts. ted said it could be a illegal. thats not being racist. more than likely a possible factual comment. i think you play with cards too much (race game). try playing domino's for awhile, then you will get cards off your mind
