Another bad call by the Tennessee justice system. According to Knoxnews.com , no charges will be filed against 16-year-old Tashanti Underwood, who was illegally operating a dirt bike up and down a residential street when he struck and killed Chris Billington, 43.

The Lovell Hills subdivision where Billington lived has been continually disrupted by teens illegally riding motorcycles and ATVs, and residents, especially Billington, weren't satisfied with the law enforcement response, reports Knoxnews.com .

Billington stepped out into the street to try and confront Underwood, when Underwood reportedly swerved his 2001 KTM 300 dirt bike and hit him, knocking him to the pavement and cracking his skull. Billington was declared dead 45 minutes later [source].

Underwood fled the scene and didn't stop, later telling police he didn't know that Billington was injured, and that he feared the man wanted to hurt him. A blood test on Underwood revealed drugs.

During the last two years this punk has beaten a man at the Turkey Creek Starbucks in Knoxville and he received probation. He spent time in juvy and has missed a lot of school. He will be 18 in July and won't have the the soft touch protection of the juvenile system to protect him. Won't be surprised when he's on the front page of KNS for Drug arrest or murder. DA Randy Nichols did Knox county citizens a disservice by not teaching this punk a lesson after killing Chris Billington on May 6th 2010.
