Dante Stallworth says he flashed his lights to warn the pedestrian.

Dante you should have hit the brakes as last time I read any common law for any community in the United States the pedestrian has the right of way.

Who knows what state would have a human being wander on to an expressway? He could have been ill, confused, sleep deprived, intoxicated... but rather than acting like a human who values another human's life you decided your time was infinitely more valuable.

If it is shown you were also intoxicated and speeding then these violations only serve as further evidence of just how callous and irresponsible you are when it comes to other people's safety.

Dante Stallworth you deserve absolutely no leniency as you showed very little to your victim. Furthermore, you owe the family of the man you killed much more than any amount you will pay in a civil suit.

For those of you who say this could happen to anyone I have to disagree. It could only happen to those who care not for others but only for themselves.

Second thoughts... usually I flash my headlights at a 4 way stop when I am yielding the right of way to another driver or if someone is backing out of a parking spot that I intend to pull into thus again yielding the right of way.

Do you think Reyes may have understood Dante's light flashing to signify I see you and I am letting you pass? Thus, Dante lured Reyes into his path.

Again I have to wonder why Dante just didn't brake but chose to flash his lights.

I hope this does not turn into a Leonard Little fiasco. Dante killed another human being while intoxicated. He killed somone. He needs to go to jail. For how long, that I cannot say. He needs to be tossed by the NFL - never allowed to play again. His name needs to be stricken from the pages of the NFL - as if he never existed.

I am a few years older than Danta and I have had MADD and SADD crammed down my throat since I was a kid. I learned very early on - DON'T DRING AND DRIVE!!! This guy, along with Leonard Little just do not get it.
