Man Charged In Christmas Eve Crash To Be Assigned New Judge

I look at this so many different ways. Should he have been driving with out a license, no. Should he have had pot with him, no. We don't know why he was even out on the road that day, he could have been going to friends and/or families for Christmas, like a lot of people on the road. Maybe he had no other way to get there but to drive his self. The main issue is did he intend to cause this? I don't think he set out that day to hurt anyone. Yes he made a mistake by driving with out a license and by looking back at his dog. It was an accident because he didn't intend for it to happen. It wouldn't be an accident if he had intended to do what he did. Such as he was looking at the road and crossed intentionally. We have all took our eyes off the road for a split second for whatever reason. It is a sad situation for both families involved.  (Oct 13, 2010 | post #21)

There could be many reasons he did this. It doesn't mean that the family of this guy paid him to. It could be that he knows one of the families in some way.  (Oct 11, 2010 | post #8)

Police: Dad Says Drunk Mom Allowed Tulsa Infant To Drown

Yes I saw that as well. There is a thing that says to ask your doctor about safe alcohol use. So many warnings with this drug, the side effects that come with its use. I have never taken the medication. My dad is on some medications for having a stroke and to say the least he has to be careful even with foods because they can cause issues. Sometimes the side effects of medications for some not all, are worse than what the medication is prescribed for.  (Oct 7, 2010 | post #76)

Police: Dad Says Drunk Mom Allowed Tulsa Infant To Drown

For Xanax it does state to ask your doctor about the safe use of alcohol with the medication. I know we all should know not to drink with meds. In some cases we can be misled by doctors about drinking with meds. Maybe it was something she had done before and it didn't cause any problems. Hormone changes can also have different effects on a person. Especially since the baby was 2 months old. The thing is we just never know. Again I am not taking up for the mom as no she shouldn't have done this. However, the dad in my eyes plays some in this, he did knock on the door for 20 minutes and with no response then opened the door. For me most of this just doesn't sound right.  (Oct 6, 2010 | post #72)

Wonder why she was on Xanax? There are many different reasons she could have been on it. Not to mention if she was taking it for the first time for anxiety she may not have known the full extent of the side effects. While most of us say oh everyone should know not to drink while taking medications, for all we know the doctor could have said it is ok to drink in moderation. Especially if it was the first time taking it. I am not taking up for her in anyway shape or form, but just saying sometimes doctors and pharmacists get in a hurry and don't tell you everything. You may think ok the doctor or pharmacists has told me everything I need to know but didn't tell her anything about drinking. I have been going to my doctor for years, I already knew if you took an antibiotic with birth control it would cancel out the birth control. However, he never managed to mention that to me at all. Also, if you read about Xanax the side effects and everything associated with it, it is pretty disturbing to say the least. For all any of us know she might have known the dangers she might not have. None of us know.  (Oct 6, 2010 | post #68)

Face Of Unemployment: Tulsa Woman Still Out Of Work

I read stories from Tulsa because I have friends and family who live there, that is why I read and post comments. I also visit there a lot and have even thought about moving there. I like your husband have been with out a job for right at two years. My company downsized which is why I lost my job. It is hard for anyone to find a job right now and as for all the craigslist jobs I also know that most of them are junk. They sound legit until you get calls from out of state about some job you have to pay lots of money to get started, buying computer programs or something. While some are legit most are not. It is hard to tell what is real and what isn't.  (Sep 27, 2010 | post #46)

Face Of Unemployment: Tulsa Woman Still Out Of Work

Yes I agree it is sad when all those years of experience are basically no good. I know this very well I have over 10 years experience in many different fields of office work. I know very well how it can be to even get a part time position as well. Once upon a time it was easy to have your years experience reflected, but today that doesn't matter. Even going to school to learn something new totally out of the field that you have experience in, then you are told you have to have experience already. It is like you have no chance either way you go anymore. These are just some of the issues that I have ran into. I was laid off almost 2 years ago due to my company down sizing because of the economy. I have ran into so many issues. The lady in the story sounds like she is just trying like everyone els. However, due to her current health issues she has ran into even more problems. Since she lost her job and health insurance her health has went down hill. Now she is faced with other things such as trying to find a job or disability.  (Sep 24, 2010 | post #35)

Face Of Unemployment: Tulsa Woman Still Out Of Work

While this is a good point, I have found along with a friend of mine most the jobs posted there are scams. They either want you to fill out all sorts of junk. I have found some great sounding jobs there and only very few have been actual jobs. Most people who are unemployed are looking for jobs, but it isn't as easy as it was 10 years ago. Most burger places won't hire someone who has lots of experience in other areas. Right now it is hard for anyone who is trying to find a job. For some the jobs that they are qualified for they might get a chance to get interviewed and might not. The bottom line is things are tough for every one. To me this story just shows how bad it is because she has 20 years experience and can't get hired.  (Sep 24, 2010 | post #31)

Driver Arrested After Fatal Hit And Run Accident On Tulsa...

You don't like anyone who might have a different outlook on what may have happened. You also don't like it because things happen to people who aren't able to pass a FST. Yes there are physical limitations that some have and they aren't able to pass a FST. Just because of that they have to do something else. Obviously it never occured to you that he may not have been drunk but could have had a couple of beers sometime in the night. I have said that yes he deserves to be punished for leaving the scene. If he did see the man and left him yes he deserves punishment. If he didn't see the man at all didn't know he had actually hit someone then what????? Bad things happen to good people we all make a decision sometimes that isn't the right one. You're not perfect I am sure you have made bad decisions in your life. The mistake he made was leaving ........  (Sep 12, 2010 | post #154)

Driver Arrested After Fatal Hit And Run Accident On Tulsa...

Packing heat wrote: While technically you are correct in that this story does clearly state alcohol did not play a factor, you are wrong to assume it did not. That only means they were misinformed just as I was originally. Officer Ashley has been quoted as saying Geoff was given a field sobriety test and failed it. For you to think this will not be a critical part of this case is very naive to say the least. I read the story on Tulsaworld. It does say that they suspected him of drinking. He could have had a beer or two and not been legally intoxicated, so therefore wouldn't have been charged with DWI. Also, I do know that there are people who can't pass a field sobriety test sober much less drunk. I have an example of that as well, my brother was pulled over for DWI several years ago he wasn't drinking and told the officer that he wasn't. They gave him the field sobriety test and he failed because he couldn't do most of the stuff. The reason for him not being able to do the stuff was due to an old injury to his leg in which he couldn't put all his weight on one leg. He also didn't have good balance either because of the injury. He didn't get a DWI because they gave him the breath test which determined he was telling the truth. The report there also states that they didn't find a broken down car in the area, so they aren't exactly sure why he was walking. A few years back there was a story where a man jumped out in front of a car to commit suicide, do we know that this wasn't the case? Now while I have stated no he shouldn't have drove off but again we don't even know if he saw the man or not. Considering he wasn't charged with DWI says that he probably was given a BAC and didn't fail it. He could have also failed the FST because of being nervous. My friend has always said there are three sides to every story, this persons story, the other persons story and the truth. I feel that there is something else with this story and I am sure it will come out eventually.  (Sep 10, 2010 | post #146)

Driver Arrested After Fatal Hit And Run Accident On Tulsa...

Packing Heat"]<quo ted text> Well obviously you are correct, he had no respect whatsoever, duh! Everyone has broken the speed limit at some point and that has nothing to do with this. Regardless this report doesn't state anything about him failing any test. It simply says alcohol played a factor. Since this report didn't state who was drinking it is hard to say. However, yes he deserves to do time since neither of us were there that night we don't know what he saw if anything. We don't even know if he relized he had hit anyone. Also, from hitting the median he could have hit his head as well and failed any type of test. Due to the extent of this crime the cops could have also done a blood test to determine if he was over the limit as well. So yes he should have called 911, stayed at the scene. Since we don't know if the man he hit came out of no where and he didn't see him that is another thing. What if he didn't see him or like I have said before what if he saw him swerved hit the median and was unaware? I have heard of people who black out when something bad happens. They have no clue what is going on around them. We don't know if that happened or not so before you start saying something about hanging someone wishing death maybe think about other circumstances. Thoughts and prayers for everyone involved in this.  (Sep 9, 2010 | post #130)

Driver Arrested After Fatal Hit And Run Accident On Tulsa...

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.  (Sep 8, 2010 | post #121)

Driver Arrested After Fatal Hit And Run Accident On Tulsa...

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.  (Sep 8, 2010 | post #120)

First off the report doesn't state who was drinking, the driver wasn't charged with DWI. Secondly, wishing someone dead isn't the best either. Prayers go out to the family of the one who died. Why was he not looking watching and listening for cars? THere is a responsibility for both parties. The driver should never have left the scene regardless. Ever think maybe he saw the man tried to miss him thought he did and wrecked? Maybe he thought he missed the man and just wrecked and he would go home and deal with the damages later. Also, there is panic, there is disbelief.... We all have it in us. No not everyone leaves but none of us here knew what he thought or saw. No one knows what the guy he hit was thinking when it happened. Seems to me both made a mistake..... Crossing a road, not looking or listening for cars, leaving the scene. When someone dies it is always easier to point the finger saying oh that person caused it because they this or that. Not one of us know what happened and never will. Everyone has a time and place. Everyones life is changed forever not just the person who died. Prayers to EVERYONE involved in this tragic accident.  (Sep 5, 2010 | post #81)
