Deputy Kills Man Without Repercussion
Florida Story of the week: A Deputy, driving 86 in a 40, killed a man. Jailtime? Nope- 2 traffic tickets... AND gets to keep her job.
An Orange County (Florida) Deputy was on the way to a call at 5:35am on Aug. 17, driving 86 in a 40, without her lights or sirens. A poor old 91 year old man was at a stop sign, turned right onto the road she was driving on and she slammed into the rear-end of his car, killing him. Any other citizen in this country would be charged with manslaughter... they said that she had not violated ANY crimes and she obtained 2 traffic tickets. She killed a man, how did she not violate a crime? She is able to keep her job, but may lose her drivers license for a year. To top it off, the old man was on his way to the hospital to visit with the patients, something that he had done regularly for years!
