My daughter received a summons for a rear end accident

An African American gentleman rear ended her when he failed to stop on an icy road. He has plead not guilty. I am having a tough time understanding why he is even being charged with anything. It was accident. Several other people had accidents on that road that weekend (not a great job by the city to treat it).

Does anybody else understand the point of criminal charges? He stayed and waited for the police. Information was exchanged. There is no deterrence value in pursuing it. He was not impaired, and it was not unreasonable under those conditions that he couldn't stopped.

She is reluctant to show up to testify (actually she is upset that the man was even charged with anything). It cost about $4K to fix her car. Her insurance company (my insurance company for 35 years and by father in laws insurance company for 50 years) probably ended up paying for it. That is the reason that I have given this company probably $100K over the years.

My wife had an accident several years ago in which she was at fault (failed to yield in a four way with no stop signs - yes no signs go figure). All she got was a citation - no court.

Video of White Power banners being draped in the House Chamber?

I could have sworn that I saw a video of this happening in the House chambers (I think it was the house). There were several banners draped from the gallery after the takeover. There was also a guide of the meaning of the symbols given by the poster

Does anyone remember this or did I dream it? I have not seen the video or stills from it since then.

This cop is still working even after a DUI, asking for special consideration

and calling a fellow LEO n___r.

Seems we learn nothing. It seems using his position to ask for special perks should have been a fireable offense (not to mention the DUI). It demonstrates ongoing corruption of the system.

“You couldn’t f------ give me the opportunity to park the car," he said. "No one reported it."

“The fact that you’re telling me that tells me you shouldn’t be an officer," the officer said.

A spokesperson for the Pinal County Sheriff's Office told KPNX that Navarrette was initially placed on modified duty. During that time, he was prohibited from driving a patrol car and rode with another deputy while taking regular calls for service.

As of Monday, however, the spokesperson said Navarrette returned to regular duty.
