Ford did not make a Ford Focus in 1998. Great reporting!
it was good reporting because yes ford did make the focus in 1998 , so quit being critical just to make yourself feel good
i am surprised a 1998 focus could go that fast though

The instant he took off it was criminal behavior. I'm sorry you lost someone you seem to care for so much, but unfortunately, most people don't have respect for those that don't respect the law or other people. And that much IS the truth.
You can try to blame everyone else for his ILLEGAL BEHAVIOR all you like, but it was his choice alone to do what he did, and that choice deserves no respect.
You sure are quick to judge, given the facts that we have before us.

I hope that your are INCREDIBLY fortunate to not be judged on anything before all the facts are out.

Did you read my post? What part of my post (about fleeing the cops and putting innocent people in danger) do you feel people shouldn't judge him on? The cops didn't push his car down the road...

I don't know why he was being pulled over, but as I said, he made the decision to run. At that instant, he broke the law and committed several felonies. There is no 'lack of facts' about that. I don't care if the cops were pulling him over to give him a 'good citizen' medal...his actions speak louder than any comments on here about his character.

Thank you, Astounded and Smrtbaby, for having the goodness inside you to consider the other side of the story. I am a relative of the driver and am quite sure depression caused this chain of events to occur. I am so very glad that the truck driver and the police involved in the incident are okay and that no one else was hurt. Thank you for remembering that the deceased was a person with family who loved him, even though his actions were dangerous and deplorable. For all of you who are so jaded that all you can think when you read a story like this is "thinning the heard," I know your loved ones wouldn't feel the same way if one of your mistakes (driving while talking on a cell phone? driving after a few beers?) led to a result like this. I understand righteous anger in the face of a criminal act, but really, turn that anger into something more useful than an anonymous and cowardly online comment.

Just curious, would you stick up for Charlie Manson? After all, most of the time he wasn't committing crimes and was said to be quite charismatic. He just made a bad decision.

Now what in the above paragraph is SPAM?

I think that people who love to blame others are probably not blameless. They just want to point out other peoples mistakes.

MISERY LOVES COMPANY! Now go and judge that spam, too, Mr, Incredible!
