Never was a name so apropos....Listen Mr. Jackass, you've got the facts a bit wrong. One turns themself in if they commit a crime. Your little red-haired prick friend only went to the police to negotiate a deal if, and only if, he could be assured of little or no consequences (in writing). Read Dowd's own later statements (the ones that he gave after lying all day on the news) in which he finally admits that his client did not offer a statement or a confession. He changed his "spin" after he realized he faced a 2nd disbarrment if he continued to lie about the police and the process.

As for the witch mother, she never uttered one single word to the police. Granted, she was taking her lawyer's advice and unfortunately in this society, many mothers would do the same, but she never offered help, nor spoke one word. This is entirely contrary to what you've tried to spin here.

Finally, the police wanted revenge? That's ridiculous. They are underpaid, hard workers with a conscience or two and they wanted to do the right thing and find a guy who acted like an irresponsible little assh*le and graduated up to a pure and simple arrogant, cocky, irresponsible murderer. They were well aware of who he murdered but could do nothing more than see that justice was done. Obviously, they found the right schmuck and hopefully he will rot for a few years behind bars.

Plain and simply put, the ONLY victims in this case are Dr. Siegel and his family. The main hero in this case is a hard working, compassionate man, Detective Fleming. Clearly, the only dirtbags in this case are the scumbag murderer and his band of accessories to murder for allowing this animal access to a car and then doing all they could to stand in the police dept's way. Of course, Dowd falls into that category as well, but then again, all his peers already know that.

first, there was no radar to check speed, so basically witness saying that he was going 80mph io snot admissible in a court of law. second it was dark and rainy and he didnt see him and plus he was jay walking

0 for 4 tough guy!

1) they determined the 80+ MPH with scientic tests, such as how fast a car of that weight had to be traveling to throw a person of Jeff's weight the exact distance he was thrown. They also were able to tell exact speed from the damage to the car.

2)he certainly saw him destroy the entire windshield of the car and then all the way down Warner Avenue as Jeff's blood, clothes and body parts were on the car and on the seat next to sweet innocent Mayer

3) Dr. Siegel was all the way accross the street and ready to step up onto curb when he was murdered by the rocketship which shouldn't have been within 10 feet of where the doctor was standing. The crack or the alcohol probably caused that issue or else he was just a real crappy driver (wouldn't know it by his record, huh?). There was no jaywalking involved, although it's a nice try to counter clear charges of manslaughter, leaving the scene, hindering prosecution, etc.

4) You're a moron. You having any idea what's admissible in court would be like Ray Charles teaching driver's ed.

Be happy that Jeff's wonderful family doesn't want a trial so that his girls don't have to see and hear all this and be happy his friends and patients know that he wouldn't approve of retribution. Otherwise, Mayer would be away for a long time and/or he'd get out and suffer a similar fate as he imposed on Jeff.

Well put Rug Boy...you're a credit to your Persian brothers. I'm sure they're proud of your excellent writing skills and your analytical expertise.

Go visit your buddy in the NC jail and take a ton of lube with you. His ass is taking a daily pounding; maybe you can join the fun!
