I love how in all of the coverage of this so far, they neglect to mention that Maria Vargas is a UCSB student. I supposed that makes it easier to just write the whole thing off as some random act of gang violence.

Why should this be a surprise? Courts are notorious for failing to punish driving behavior that results in a fatality. Even calling such incidents an "accident" builds in a notion that nobody was at fault. Just look at the Jake Boysel case. Driver with history of reckless driving behavior plows into a boy legally riding in a bike lane and kills him. The maximum he could have even been sentenced to is a year, and that's assuming he was convicted.
The only thing to learn from all of this is that if someone kills you due to their own "negligence" they'd better be using a gun because if they're driving a vehicle they're going to get off scott free.

So much for double jeopardy. Prosecution had two shots at this guy and couldn't get the job done. Are they going to keep trying him til he's bankrupt and can only afford a public defender?

Rather than strip searching 4 year olds and forcing people with medical conditions to remove false breasts and catheters we should focus on the real dangers such as cell phone drivers (with and without headsets) that are as dangerous as drunks on the roads. I guarantee you they've killed more people in the last ten years than domestic terrorist attacks.

“I infer from the evidence before me that Mrs. McCaw is capable of great vindictiveness and appears to relish the opportunity to wield her considerable wealth and power in furtherance of what she believes to be a righteous cause,” Rothman declared in her ruling.

I think for those who lost their homes in this fire, your insenstive poll suggesting the option that it is "payment for their sins" is a bit over the top don't you think?

Gee, I wonder if KEYT had received a press release accusing Michael Douglas of possession of kiddie porn or an email stating that Mayor Blum was under investigation for grand larceney they might just call to get verification?
