If you have been following my blog long enough, you know that in July 2007 when I was 6 months pregnant with Evan, my darling cousin Satara was hit and killed by a drunk driver whilst walking on her street. She was 14. Her parents have been devastated, their life shattered trying to live on without her and being in and out of courts for 2 year now. Well today the judge decided his damn breathalizer was inadmissable because the police bullied him into taking it.
Am I missing something here? If a person is obviously drunk, has open liquor in the car and just hit and killed someone, does it matter?? The cop did not beat him into submission, they just told him if he refused he would charged with refusing a breathalizer, which I thought was true…how is that bullying? What the hell is wrong with this world, an innocent girl is the dead, the dude was drunk, he failed the breathalizer, and now, he will not be charged as a drunk driver at all……In fact he will probably get nothing at all. We get to live with the huge gap she left in our hearts. I need to go cry now, her death was in vain it would seem today. We were so close, and I miss her so much it’s excruciating.
