Motorcyclist killed in Downey crash; driver arrested

I drove through that intersection on my way to work that morning at around 6:15. All I saw was the motorcycle, lots of debris and police officers in the parking lot across from the bank looking around with flashlights. I said a prayer for him and his family when I went through the intersection, and several times throughout the day when I thought about it. This morning I went through the intersection and saw the memorial. I feel so terrible for the victim and his family. There was no excuse for what that guy did, and he should pay dearly for it. If you feel you need to drink, stay at home and do it. Don't take stupid chances like that.  (Oct 11, 2010 | post #30)

Wow, all of your misguided insults aside, I guess you didn't read both posts by me. I'm not really surprised since I know all family and friends involved are emotional beyond belief (for obvious reasons, and I understand that completely). I did not in any way defend him at all. Let me quote my first post that was in response to people talking about how he is supposedly a "good man" for you since you didn't read it: "A good man does not do something like this, and a good father sure as heck does not do something like this in front of his kids. Those children are going to have to live with that for the rest of their lives, and they are never going to get over it. Hopefully she recovers and her children will not have to grow up without her." And no, I won't be surprised at all when "more information is released about him." I hope he does get victimized like you said because he deserves it. Maybe next time you should read BOTH posts by me to figure out what I'm trying to say. When I said (and I'm quoting) "Nobody deserves something like this to happen to them, period. The truth is that we are all human, and we all make mistakes. The unfortunate part of this situation is that children were involved." I was talking about what HE did to her, and that yeah, she fell in love with her, but the last time I checked, falling in love was not a crime. Of course he caused stress for family and friends, because what he did was selfish beyond belief, no matter how you look at it. . That goes without saying. The truth is that you really *can't* console children that are witnesses to such a violent act. The best you can do is hold them when they are crying and try to help them understand that THEY had nothing at all to do with what happened.  (Sep 29, 2010 | post #91)

obviously you didn't read the post that I was replying to. This person was basically saying that if I were to put all of the blame on him, I was raised to be a victim, which was not what I said AT ALL. And in fact, I flat out said that a "good man" as people were trying to say that Cesar Meza is would NOT under any circumstances do something like that to the mother of his children, and definitely NOT in *front* of his children. In fact, let me quote my first post: "A good man does not do something like this, and a good father sure as heck does not do something like this in front of his kids. Those children are going to have to live with that for the rest of their lives, and they are never going to get over it. Hopefully she recovers and her children will not have to grow up without her." My second post (which is the one you replied to) was in response to this by an "Anonymous " poster: "A good mother does a better job of picking a father for her children. I'd still say 75% of this is on him, but better choices on her part might've avoided all of this. If you say she was completely blame free, you were raised to be a victim. You were raised to believe you could play on the freeway and sue anyone who runs you over. I do wish her a speedy recovery and the best for her kids & the emotional trauma they were put through." Nowhere in either post did I say that SHE was at fault, did I? Obviously Anonymous thinks that SHE is at fault, and I don't agree. Have you not EVER fallen in love with somebody only to realize years later how stupid you were in that case? THAT is what I was referring to, NOT his actions. If you really want to know my opinion on this here it is. He is selfish, and somehow thinks that his problem with being rejected by a woman was too much for him. His pride was hurt and he acted out. He cannot possibly believe that *he* did something to bring on her kicking him out. He obviously did not think beyond getting his revenge, and how it would affect his children in the long run. I never once said my child is a saint, and if you read anything that I posted previously, you'd know that "smarter than you".  (Sep 29, 2010 | post #90)

"If you say she was completely blame free, you were raised to be a victim. You were raised to believe you could play on the freeway and sue anyone who runs you over." Did I say that Anonymous? No, I did not. No, I was not raised to be a victim. Do you know what the situation was with these two people? I'm guessing you don't. I don't either. What I DO know is that as a father (and yes, I'm using the term loosely here given the circumstances), he should want to protect his family, and not bring harm to them no matter what the circumstances. Nobody deserves something like this to happen to them, period. The truth is that we are all human, and we all make mistakes. The unfortunate part of this situation is that children were involved.  (Sep 28, 2010 | post #83)

A good man does not do something like this, and a good father sure as heck does not do something like this in front of his kids.
