2. When I served in the military

It was well known that if you broke a civilian traffic law and someone was injured or died in Germany (where I was stationed) , it was more likely than not that the US government was going to let the local authorities fully prosecute. If the accident happened on base, and no local nationals were involved, it likely would be a military prosecution only. But if it was in town, and you killed a local national, it was likely you would end up in a local jail for some time.

It is highly unusual for this woman to have caused that accident, and not be returned to the UK for prosecution. Trumps involvement already is harming the US- UK relationship. Itís wrong to keep her here- she needs to stand trial in the UK. Period.
