That's a very good question. The signs you see in work zones say "hit a worker 10,000 fine and up to 14 years in jail" This guy hits 4 workers, killing one of them, and hasn't been ticketed or charged. What's up with that?

If you must know,he knows people that know people,and since you need to know the full detailed story,he will have his people get ahold of your people.

It stated very clearly, on the St. Louis news website, that it would take a couple of weeks to get the toxicology results back. They are waiting to get those before they charge him. I don't know him and I am not defending him, just saying maybe you all should wait to pass judgement until all the facts are in.

One should not believe everything you read or hear in the media.

Common sense is really the only requirement to figure out what happened. The charges will come based on the investigation not on the media.

I do not know Jeter. However, the families of the deceased and injured are suffering greatly for his actions.

Why is it when you see road work you have a 45mph zone sing, then 40 feet in front of that you have some holding a a slow down sing most of time hiding behind a construction barrel then 20 feet in front, the work crew is working, if you want people to slow down to 25 mph don't have a sing that says 45
