Since 2001, Bragg has been arrested 18 times for crimes that include larceny, possession of cocaine and violating probation, according to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. She is listed as being on community control by the Florida Department of Corrections.
This is absolutely disgusting. What in the hell was the piece of trash doing on our streets??? Her *ss should have been rotting in jail. Our criminal *justice* system is in shambles....

This reporter is wrong about Miss Bragg being arrested. She was booked into Orange County Jail last evening on a VOP in relation to this case. She is currently in custody with a no bond status until she appears before a judge.

Why do Sentinel reporters leave out material facts or just plain mis-report them?

First, the article says she was NOT arrested. And second, how can it be racist when race was not mentioned?

My sentiments exactly. But then again, the reason we have so much crime is because the judges let them out to commit more crimes. Yesterday, a hardened criminal was let loose because the judge was late for the hearing. What kind of crap is that? The judge should be stuck in jail for a few days for letting this happen.

This accident happened at 9 am. I think what the reporter meant was that she was not arrested at the scene. If she was later arrested for a VOP then that would most likely be her probation/community control officer asking that she be picked up....so technically she was not arrested on charges for this accident but rather for a vop. I'm sure there will be charges later filed regarding this accident as well as another vop.

She has a myspace profile page and by the looks of things doesn't look like a real 'winner'. So sad.

Norm lived up the street from me. One pf the finest people I have ever know. I saw him walking everyday with his wife. He was a friend from the time we moved in, 13 years ago. He taught me how to really ride a bike(race)and at 67 he could still keep up with the "Young bucks" on the bike, not to mention with anything else he cared to do. Norm was a roll model in so many ways... he will be missed by all.

Keith...please re-read the statement...nothing was said about race...the poster uses the name "Orlando Racist".

And yes, this girl should have been in jail rotting...how can people that have a list longer than my arm be out on the streets ?? Come on judges...wake up !!! This idiot caused the death of a law abiding, kind citizen and she isn't being charged yet ??

I never said anything about race. I just said this reporter is wrong about her being arrested. The reporter claimed she was not arrested and that is not the case.

She was arrested on a VOP in relation to this case.

This is what Society gets for letting people arrested 18 times on the street!
People, you need to get on these judges faces and make them accountable and also change the law to make it impossible for repeat offenders of the law to be out on the street. Wake up people!
