He should still be charged with vehicular manslaughter, for nothing short of gross negligence forRead More leaving the scene and leaving her to die. He turned himself in, so how the hell can he plead not guilty ????

It looks like the Patch talked to the Coast Guard. Did they talk to the FAA? Where did the planeRead More take off from? Did it file a flight plan? Where was it headed? Was he an experienced pilot? Did he radio for help before the crash. If he was over LI he was in contact with LI Approach Controllers and had a transponder identifying him. What did they have to say about what they saw him doing on radar?

Thankful this irresponsible maniac did not crash into someone's home or kill any innocentRead More bystanders.

Great! Sad to say, but a brief scan of the official FAA website reveals that most fatal crashes areRead More connected to stupid, usually overage pilots flying "toyplanes". They all think that they are commercial/military pilots, but they are no more qualified than any boaters out there! Make them go immediately out to sea, and stay away from our backyards, please!

I feel bad for the victims & the truck driver. These companies push their employees & ifRead More they don't do what they want then they will be replaced. Many companies after all these years of working the same shift every week they are now switching shifts from week to week. Do they think these employees bodies can adjust just like that?

It was a Walmart trucker. Walmart truckers have been involved in 380 "accidents" in theRead More past two years. 9 fatalities have resulted. Walmart has the highest truck "accident" percentage of any retailer in the US.

Sorry, I didn't read all that. Your first 2 lines proved you read what into my comments what youRead More wanted to. If you read carefully you would see that I was not biased. I actually didn't take a side. I simply said it was still under investigation and that all the facts are not known. My second comment is also indicative of me not being biased. I am not easily baited into senseless debate Sorry if you thought addressing me would cause me to engage.
Brookhaven999 June 11, 2014 at 07:39 am
Kristen wrote:"Your first 2 lines proved you read what into my comments what you wantedRead More to." Oh, really? The first 2 lines I wrote were "my uncle was a Teamster all his life, and I've known many tractor-trailer drivers but I'll be the LAST one to start..." So, you did read my entore posting. And more comedy:"Sorry if you thought addressing me would cause me to engage." I found your first posting ridiculous and extremely biased and I wrote a rebuttal. You didn't have to become provoked, but you obviously were :-).
KPez June 11, 2014 at 10:58 am
OK sorry, the first 3 lines. I quit reading at biased & clairvoyant. Listen, I am sure that yourRead More views are quite valid (I am not being sarcastic). I am also quite sure you have your own bias, as we all do. You mistakenly assume that I am provoked. In my experience people who start of with a subtly insulting question intend it to provoke. So I stopped right there in order to avoid becoming provoked and engaging in pointless debate, and in competition to see who can come with the best subtle zinger (because in my own pride I know I have a propensity to do so - which is not a good quality). Maybe had you asked a different question that didn't seem so insulting I would have read the rest. I made no declaration of who was was at fault in the case because this particular article only said that it was under investigation and there was no cause listed (but maybe I misread it). Also I did not read any other articles, and any other "facts" brought to bear were from comments of others who claimed to read other articles or some special knowledge (note they didn't site their sources so I have no way to validate them). So in regard to this case, no, I am not biased. Like you, I was not there. Now if you want claim that I have other bias, I may grant you that. For instance, I am bias against New Jersey drivers, but saying that does not have any bearing on the facts in this particular case nor does another truck drivers experiences. I am sure there are a number of things in my comments that others would not agree with, just as I disagree with or hold in contempt some of the comments made by others on this thread.

The SAFE Act has nothing to do with this story. Buying guns out of state and then bringing them in,Read More was always a crime, so is selling guns to Felons these guns are Pistols which is also not covered by the SAFE Act. The SAFE Act is aimed at making it more difficult for Firearms owner's to protect themselves and exercise their Second Amendment Rights. Vote against those responsible this November.
