How is it that there is so much corruption in this county? How deep does this pit of vile venom go - perhaps all the way to the governors door?
There is a victim involved in a "hit and run" the driver Jack Morton, a former Vice Mayor of Palo Alto, California and passenger Robert Ashton, Insurance Magnate now residing in Florida, were attempting to run over a neighbors goat with Jack Morton's truck but when the neighbor tries to protect their pet they are hit by the bumper, suffered injuries, went to the ER, reported it as a Hit and Run, a felony I might add.
The following day - the deputy who took the report goes on vacation for a very long time and no official report is made. Yet the DA in Gold Beach Oregon calls the driver, Jack Morton to confirm the allegation....?..... and Morton denies it happened at all. Does this happen in the real world? The DA, a paid state employee calls the perpetrator to get his side of the story????? So now the DA wants to arrest the victim for filing a false report? I am very confused. Does this mean the rich and powerful do not fall under the same laws we peasants must follow and obey?
This was July 2013, now its October 2013, as yet there is no arrest warrant for Jack Morton or Robert Ashton. Two multi-millionairres with homes valued in the millions at Pigeon Point, near Gold Beach Oregon.
The victims insurance investigator has made a most interesting case:
1 - Jack Morton claims there was no hit and run.
2 - Robert Ashton stated that the victim hit the truck. hmmmm. they cannot seem to get their stories straight?
3 - Meanwhile, the victim is still suffering pain from the injury.
