If you are going to argue your point at least look at the facts doofus. THERE ISN'T A DUI CHARGE. THERE ISN'T LIGHTING ON THIS PART OF THE HWY..and WE DON'T KNOW THE WHOLE STORY. News channels do a great job of giving us peices of stories for ratings..and then people like you who obviously don't have lives and have plenty of time to sit on a forum all day and write a hate filled novels of responses can draw your own conclusions. I guess it works out just fine for them. U can have an opinion but you can't sit on an anonymous forum and tell someone to hang themselves. Sometimes words hurt worse than any action so maybe you should watch yours.

I find you video very funny. But to help my problem? I have no problem...I just think its wrong for someone to wish death upon another person like you have. You dont know Geoff. There are so many things that could have happen that night. Right now all we know is what the media is telling. I totally agree that drinking nad driving in wrong and I also agree that Geoff fleeing the scene was wrong and cowardly. However could it be possible that he didnt know he had hit someone? Maybe he feel asleep and woke up when he hit the wall or what everit was that he hit afterward. Please dont think at all that I am trying to defend because I am not. But I think you should know complete facts (which will not be known until after he goes befor a judge) before you going saying he or anyone else needs to be hung. Whats to say Geoff has never been in trouble before and goes before a judge and say, I'm gulity I did this it was wrong I'm prepaired to serve my time and pay my fines. Then after he does that he goes off to tell his story to others to try and help other people. Would you still think he needs to be hung? There are people out there who I would agree with you on needing to be "hung" but those people truly do deserve it because they are the ones that have murdered just because, just because their baby cried or just because they wanted to cover another crime. Those are the people you need to focus you hate on. And also sir I think your the one with the problem....My bet is you are a cop and have seen alot of crimes and have problem committed many crimes yourself like most cops do. Thats the problem with the world now there are very few "good cops" out there now. Up in my neck of the woods a good portions of the cops here are the drug dealers here and if you dealiing and supplying to them your all good but do one of them dirty on a drug and oh lordy your looking at some major time. And you can't get away from that I moved from North Tulsa because my neighbor drove through my yard and tried to run me and my 6 month old over when I called 911 and they showed up they told me the neighbor was off of his meds and and I would have to leave my house for a few days. Come to find out the cop that came to my house was getting drugs from the guy that tried to do harm to me and my son.....sorry a little off topic but I have a very bad attitude towards cops who dont serve to protect others.

You are a perfect example of the adage “you just can’t fix stupid!” Now you’re talking like I care what that thug Geoff Miller feels. He didn’t worry about what the man felt like when he, Geoff Miller came along and killed him and then run and attempt to hide. Give it up. You will never ever change my opinion. Geoff Miller is a Killer.

A. The driver of any vehicle involved in an accident resulting in the death of any person shall immediately stop such vehicle at the scene of such accident or as close thereto as possible but shall then forthwith return to and in every event shall remain at the scene of the accident until he has fulfilled the requirements of Section 10-104 of this title. Every such stop shall be made without obstructing traffic more than is necessary.
B. Any person willfully, maliciously, or feloniously failing to stop to avoid detection or prosecution, or to comply with said requirements under such circumstances, shall upon conviction be guilty of a felony punishable by imprisonment for not less than one (1) year nor more than ten (10) years, or by a fine of not less than One Thousand Dollars ($1,000.00) nor more than Ten Thousand Dollars ($10,000.00), or by both such fine and imprisonment.

Owasso police stopped a black Ford F-150 missing a tire on the left rim with heavy front-end damage driving east on 86th Street North. The driver appeared to be intoxicated and failed sobriety tests administered by the officer, Ashley said. Maybe this needs to be followed up by Detectives?

To hurting.. So if I know him personally I shouldn't think he deserves punishment? What kind of idiot are you? What this boy did was wrong, whether I know him or not. Should I give him a "get out of jail free" card because I know him. Sorry, but WRONG is still WRONG reguardless of who you are.
Noname: Do i think he doesn't deserve punishment? No I don't. But I have a hard time believing the the person "Anon" who posted "he should be punished hard" actually knows Geoff personally. If this were the case he would know that Geoff is a good man who made a bad decision and would be pulling for him to get help, not wishing such ill will on him. Bringing his family into the coversation has nothing to do with anything, leave them alone, they are hurting enough. Geoff has a life sentence, whether a judge gives him time or not.
If you are blameless out there, never drank a beer and drove or never took your eyes off of the road to text: go ahead, throw stones. Otherwise, leave both families to grieve and mind your own business.

This could have prevented that stupid drunk guy from flying his car nearly into that apartment bedroom on Memorial a few months ago. Or the dumb kid whe killed those people driving with a revoked license during that Christmas eve snowstorm if I remember correctly.
Seems many of these home invasions,drunk drivings,hit and runs,etc were from people rescued over and over again.
If more parents (or parent) have given the kid some tuff love we would not have so many innocent people hurt or killed.
The way some of you defend these screw ups make me think where were you before they got this far.
Where was the intervention? Why didn't some of these parents leave them in the jail for an extra day to reflect upon their wrongs.
Where were the prayers before they got this far?
Just don't post here. You didn't care about the person anyways.
I mean really.
I'm sorry BobbyJ, but intervention for what exactly? Intervention is by definition "an attempt to compel a subject to "get help" for an addiction or other problem." So, you are saying for Geoff, who has no history of DUIs or DWIs (he is also not a drinker on the norm) needs intervention? You don't know him, he is no addict. Put yourself in his parents shoes, you would leave your child to "reflect upon his wrongs"? Really? You think he won't reflect on them everyday?

Hurting for both families my foot! Your whole focus is what a great guy Geoff Miller the Killer is. Yes, Intervention is exactly what should have happened long before now. The most important intervention needed right now is called incarceration. Incarceration is by definition:

“One type of incarceration is known as pre-adjudication confinement. This type of incarceration involves keeping an individual in custody that has been charged with but not convicted of a crime. The presumption of this person's innocence is intact despite the fact that he is incarcerated.”

Any individual who can get in a vehicle and drive anywhere in reach of the general public and for any reason in the world hits another human being and kills them and just drive off is a serious threat and should not be allowed to roam free or have access to harm anyone else.

His past becomes irrelevant when the urgency becomes to protect the general publics safety when his present say he can and has endangered the public. Your words of encouragement to again trust a known killer such as Geoff Miller as well as many others before him are ridiculous at best. Just look at what that trust inflicted on the Gentleman the other night.

Not too reassuring to me for one. How can I feel safe for my family to travel on public roadways in and around Owasso where this predator resides? I don’t recall reading anything stating he has an ankle GPS monitor on to track him and make sure he doesn’t endanger them or anyone else. Please correct me if that was an over-site on my part please.

I for one have been in Mr and Mrs. Millers shoes with a son who seriously violated the law as well as the victims he stole from and can say unequivocally that is exactly what any responsible parent or I would do when the sibling is beyond their control. Been there, done that and will do it again if it become necessary. The safety of the innocent must come first. I truly hope you do not think to the contrary. Sure seems that way to me.

What I do find very disturbing is your banter asking everyone to not give an opinion until more facts are known yet the only facts known to those who had never met Geoff Miller is he in fact is the killer who killed that Loving Husband, Father, Family Member and Friend.

Equally disturbing is your claim to “Hurting for both Families” is a little one sided. Not one single time in your post did I read anything expressing anything for the Victim or his family? Will you point that out for me please? All I am able to see is your continued defense of Geoff Millers Character. How many victims constitute a problem? 1,2,3 or more? Just asking.

Oh my goodness, look what was lurking out of the closet of Geoff Miller the Killers past. Seems this is not his first time speeding down the highway at 90 miles an hour in a 65 mile an hour zone. He pled guilty and paid a fine of $187.00 for his disregard for others life and safety.
http://www1.odcr.com/detail.php... -

This happened back in 2002 when Geoff Miller the Killer lived at 9886 E PALM TREE RD CLAREMORE OK 74017 and thankfully Officer Kevin Cox stopped this nonsense. This leaves me to wonder if Officer Cox had not stopped Geoff Miller the Killer, who would have been the victim that day?

The picture is so much clearer that Geoff Miller the Killer has no regard for the safety of others while operating a motor vehicle on our public roadways! I truly hope the District Attorney will reconsider leaving this killer out on bond.

Also I am curious if Officer Gray from Owasso Police Department will be testifying about his encounter with Geoff Miller the Killer when he stopped him, like the smell of alcohol, his failure to pass a field sobriety test and any other important information?

geez man, you don't have anything better to do than sit on here and yap about something you don't know about? You're on 2 different sites speaking your mind about something you have no clue about. He'll get punishment, and even he knows that. For the most part, I think you're right about a lot of the "punishment" sides to your argument, but you fill the cracks with hate and your total lack of knowledge on the subject. I'd tell you the other side to the story, but there's no sense in it. You will find some other speeding ticket to try to prove your point (which by the way, who hasn't? get a life.) I admire your sense of pride in keeping the streets clean and standing up for what you believe in, but do you think you are serving a greater justice by filling up blog sites all day? And even when you make a point, you can't seem to keep your hate and mockery out of a sentence long enough to make your point seem nothing more than a disgruntled old man talking politics. I take things more seriously when a person speaks like an adult than a belligerent fool. I do not condone driving under the influence. I think its a stupid, risky thing to do. However, I think we could all think of more than a handful of people from our own friends and family that could have very well been in this predicament and having people like you talk trash and hate towards them.

True enough sugarbritches but what you refuse to acknowledge is the thug we are discussing, Geoff Miller hit and killed a man and just drove away thinking only of him self. For that he should pay the maximum allowed by law unless he was to decide to take his own life as he did to the man he left laying on the road after he mowed him down.
I simply expressed my opinion as to how I think our justice system should be able to handle it! This is after all a public forum for everyone to express their opinions the same as you have toward me.
Geoff Miller, a short rope and a tall tree. Nothing more and nothing less. The KISS method - KEEP IT SIMPLE STUPID. I do hope this clears up any misunderstanding we had.
Best Regards
How would you like it if someone was saying this about your family member or son for that matter? Since you have admitted that your son has been in trouble before. Some might say he should be hung as well, I don't think you would take it lightly. Now as for hanging Mr. Miller, that is something that only a person with no heart would say. Did you ever think something might have happened he didn't see the man, might have seen him at the last moment swerved actually hit him then hit the median? He may not have thought he hit him and also since there isn't anything supporting his drinking and driving such as he hasn't been charged with it. They could have meant the person he hit. We don't know we weren't there, bottom line he shouldn't have left the scene however he did. Yes he should pay for leaving the scene but he may have infact just thought he wrecked his truck and didn't realize he actually hit the person.

Well obviously your son had no respect for humanity when he was doing breaking and entering on 13 accounts..... So really before bashing someone elses family look at your own family history. It really isn't that squeeky clean now is it? Yes who in our life hasn't had a ticket???? Heck I just got one not too long ago, paid it no biggie..... Seriously this was back in 2002 when he got it that was 8 years ago. Before you go pointing fingers at this person why do you not ask him what happened what he saw. Yes he deserves to be charged with leaving the scene but a murderer???? That is someone who intends to kill not someone who accidentally hits someone.

Geez man, this was a mess but did the best I could to answer each question. Sure hope this clears up any misunderstanding we had. Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you, I think.
* Probably could find something but this is fun and does educate the one’s who enjoy reading more facts about those who roam amongst us. There are generally more facts to a story than what are reported on KOTV-6 as they only report what they are told. Thugs are not always just someone who made a bad mistake and just drove off and left it for someone else to clean up. No Sir, it is a little more serious than just the same old stories the enabler’s come on here and say! I am just merely responding. I take it you are related, friends or just thin skinned and don’t really care. Sorry you haven’t always enjoyed the reads but don’t try to ruin it for others. Simply skip on down by the cemetery whistling and ignore it.
* And really, 2 different sites? I have never posted anywhere but Topix! Now several stories but I do have a wide interest in the world around me including killers.
* Yes he will get punishment and I am sure he knows it. I feel certain he deserves it as well.
* Well how sweet, we finally agree on something.
* You call it hate and I call it justice, make of it what you will!
* The other side of the story? Are you kidding me? Not at all and I would love to hear it. Please do post it and let me thank you in advance. Please do enlighten me. Forget his past for a moment and let’s hear it about this case and this case only, please. I have a life but that is quite wonderful but thank you for the offer.
*“Blushing” ah’shucks something you admired, justice! Clean up the streets and Stand up for what you believe. It spite of what you might think, the judge and jury will decide about a greater justice. Not sure I get to sit on this jury. In the mean time if it is not going to be a real big problem for you and because I am going to do it when I get good and ready, I’ll just keep on posting. I sure hope you decide to do the same with the other side of this story; I look forward to reading it.
* Will you make up your mind? It was hard enough to figure out what you wrote and then one sentence you like it and the next you quit liking it. Are you on crack? Just asking!
* In other words you like some of what I say? I am not disgruntled; I passed that when I first came back home to Tulsa. What made you think I was just disgruntled? It is stories like this that absolutely outrage me as well as a few others! The rest are why I am Packing Heat, get it?
* Now you have me wondering why you bothered to read my post and respond if you did not take it seriously silly, duh!
* Wonderful as you can tell I do not condone it either and yes it is very stupid and risky.
* Boy you are right about that one and I bash them best I can too. You just do not know when it is family or foe because I never say. I am not prejudice; I dislike all thugs regardless of who it is or what kin they might be. Oh and all 14 families received everything stolen from them including some cash from my son when he was a thug!

How would you like it if someone was saying this about your family
It would not make me angry at all and in fact I would join in and bash right along with them.
Are you kidding me? The Detective had to calm me down because that was exactly what I suggested and that was when he was only charged with 1 crime. When I got the story out of him of the other 13 is when he was properly charged, as he should have been. So you are wrong right here sugar britches, wrong!
I didn’t take it lightly when my ex-wife wanted me to buy him out of it and further reason why I ask his bond be raised so no one could get him out. I knew that was in the works behind my back!
I mentioned that to my heart doctor and he said heart is just fine but will mention it again when I see him.
Anything is possible but any excuse is kind of out the window when he decided to run. See, in order for that to make sense he would have had to stay put, called 911 and waited for help to arrive. He did none and in fact just drove away.

That is where I am stuck. If you had really read all my post’s from the very beginning you would have noticed I kind of defended him and the alcohol until that became part of the story posted from Owasso Police Department sources to another media outlet and link was posted. Have you read the report? Stop by and have a look.

Owasso is the best City in Oklahoma as far as open records policy. No crooks working there that I am aware of, just honest open business and nothing to hide. Nice place to live too if you obey the law. If not, consider moving or going to jail. For right now and until a better story comes along, I tend to believe Owasso Police Officer Gray had probable cause to arrest Mr. Miller and low and behold gets a call from Tulsa Police Department to be on the look out for such a vehicle and suspect. So yes I would love to hear Mr. Miller’s version or even yours if you care to share.

And no they couldn’t have meant the guy that got hit. You can count failing a field sobriety test when they don’t move he was dead so they had to mean Mr. Miller and yes he should not have left.

And this last one let me to ask you a question to a question so we both can have another answer. We both agree he should pay for leaving the scene of his accident but nothing for hitting the gentleman on the highway? Explain that one if you would please!

Well obviously you are correct, he had no respect whatsoever, duh! In fact he never mentioned a word of it until I ask the Detective if I might have a word alone with him. He agreed and we had a little private chat. He knew better than to lie to me. All 14 families receive every single item back that was stolen including the cash taken. How about that?

Done looked at it, dealt with it, fixed it and moved on. The Kiss Method, it’s in this thread, look it up!

Speeding ticket are generally not a real biggie but none the less it is the law and if we are not going to obey them, why even have them. Sometimes it is important information to show this person does in fact speed up and down the highway. One ticket only means caught one time but 90 mph in a 65mph zone? That in it self is an accident waiting to happen. Care to explain that one Mr. Miller? Ok, I ask him but he will have to read this to know I ask because I have no intention of asking him any other way. They may even ask him in court and I can hear it then but did want to point it out as relevant to Mr. Miller’s prior actions, kind of like a character witness.

Well he won’t be charged with murder but, this is the minimum he should face and that is before we know any other facts! Getting caught 4 or 5 miles down the road in another jurisdiction and being bought back under arrest doesn’t count as close thereto as possible and then forthwith return to the scene. It was to avoid detection. The only question left here is: willfully, maliciously, or feloniously failing to stop to avoid detection or prosecution? Which is it Mr. Miller please do tell?

OK Statute 47-10-102.1 – Accidents Resulting in Death - Failure to Stop

If this is true, that would be all the more reason one would not consider having a drink if that happened (seems that may have happened charged or not) and all the more reason to drive slower than usual to be safe and not hit a stranded motorist while broke down on the highway. Might have even seen him and could have offered him a ride to town or even allowed him to use his cell phone if he had one and wasn’t busy talking on it. Is that a possibility too? Just asking!
