I really don't think that he should be charged with anything because he was in the right state of mind and this woman was jay walking which she caused it to happen then it wasn't like this man hit the woman and ran no he called the police and waited untill they got there then he was completely sober so.. An apology to her family would be great out of due respect but other than that he don't owe no body nothing exspecially not the jailhouse.

This is not really news. She was not in a crosswalk, he did stop, did not flee the scene and was not drinking. Guess that when you are rich and famous, everything you do is public business.

Finally someone who didn't try to cover up anything. No alcohol or drugs! Imagine that, a celebrity that did the right thing. OTHERS SHOULD TAKE NOTE!!!

People do the right thing all the time it's just that only the big stuff gets talked about- be it bad or good. Society sucks.

Way to go, Mr. Singleton, for being outstanding even in a messed up situation.

Prayers out to the family during their lost.

Too bad singleton didn't get the fatal injury. He is a purveyor or violence and should meet a little to see what he pushes.

To tired of it: The American educational system teaches art, and creative imaginaton. People are supposed to be rewarded for their success throuhout their scholastic and professional endeavors. We live in a society today where stupidity, jealousy and cheats that went through the same system as he wants to be equally rewarded and seek the same attention. It is just as sad that those with inferior intellect doesn't know the difference. No one but his family that was supportive of him and all of their children knows the struggle that they face. So I hope and pray that you should meet a little of that which America pushes.

I'll bet he was going 35 over the limit, as per TNB.

To tertle: You need to stop trying to escalate and excarbate a war with punches that you don't know how to throw. You need to let it go - to let it flow.

To KK: Monikers and alias are for people that are troubled and are afraid to to get caught in trouble with their real names. Don't you know they don't want their real names matched to the real troublemaker.

Monikers and aliases also is the rejection of the name that your parents gave you. After rejecting your birth name that person accepts their new indentity and tries to live by it. Sooner or later they fail to live up to their new identity.
