Getting murder charges for drag racing?

Should someone get charged with murder for drag racing? I will ask this again after a further explanation. Let me start with the story leading up to this. A few days ago in Eagle Rock, which is a district of Los Angeles; a car crashed into a tree which sits in the center divider of Colorado Blvd. Witnesses and law enforcement officers explained it as one of the most horrible things they had ever seen, one witness said that body parts were scattered around and there was nothing anyone could do to help. The Nissan Maxima actually split in half.

The driving was a 19 year old, eight months pregnant girl and she carried four passengers with her. Among them was her 16 year old sister, a 19 year old family friend, the divers 19 year old husband and a 15 year old boy who could have been the drivers brother or cousin since he shared the same last name.

According to a police investigation they were racing with two other cars and could have been going 80-100 MPH. I used to drive Colorado everyday in that area and know that the speed limit is 35 or 45 MPH. The driver, her unborn child of course, her 15 year old sister and the family friend all died instantly. The drivers husband and the 15 year old boy were in critical condition but are not expected to make it.

One witness said that she went to help the husband but the help he needed was way beyond First Aid. She said that he was missing his legs and all she could say was that everything is going to be alright.

One of the cars involved in the racing kept going and left the scene but the other car that was racing stopped. Yes, the guy actually stopped to help the injured out. Now, this guy who stopped has been arrested and is facing murder charges! They are still looking for the third car.

About the guy facing murder charges. I really think that it is a bunch of crap! This guy should not be facing murder charges! He did not kill these people. Now, don't get me wrong here, this is a very sad thing that just happened here, one of the saddest things you could hear but this guy did not make these people crash. It was the 19 year old girls decision to speed like that and race and unfortunately the worst thing that could happen happened.

I do not defend these drag racers at all, trust me. I hate them actually. I think when people get caught doing this they should have their drivers license taken away for life and if caught again give them some time in the big house and make it a felony charge and if they repeat doing it make the punishment even stiffer.

Back to my point though. This guy actually stopped, he had compassion and was probably raised in a good household by some good parents and should not get life for this!

Stupid woman confesses to murder on Tom Leykis radio show

Tom Leykis is a radio show that comes on here were I live from 3:00 PM to 7:00 PM. The show is aimed at men and educates them on woman or what Tom calls - Leykis 101. Leykis basically educates men on not getting into problems in life with woman such as getting married young, having babies, paying child support and so on. One of Tom's catch phrases is that he will never spend more than $40 on a date with a woman and advises others not to spend a lot of money on a date with a woman either. There is way to much to explain the Tom Leykis show to those who don't know it but I just wanted to give a quick run down on his show. Many woman hate Tom Leykus and his way of thinking, there have even been woman who have called and said that they hate him because he educates men about them (woman), which of course works against the woman.

Anyhow, back to the point of this posting. A woman called up the Tom Leykis show in November of 2006. The woman identified herself as Sue, she was from the state of Arizona. The woman started telling Tom Leykis that she had killed your ex-boyfriend after he refused to pay her child support. Actually, he was really a one night stand she said. Apparently she got pregnant and had their child. He refused to pay child support so she took the law into her own hands and went to family court and they started garnishing this guys work paychecks. The guy ended u quitting his job and Sue approached her babies father for under the table child support. When he refused she shot him and killed him with a 9MM. She also said that she shot him right in the heart and that she's a nurse so she knows right were to aim. When the police investigated she said that she told the police that he had killed himself and that they believed her. Tom told her that she has just confessed to murder on the radio and that she will be found and will go on trial. The woman (Sue) then hung up her phone.

Police have investigated and found this woman (Sue) to really be Megan Suzanne Vice. Recently police formally presented the Maricopa County Attorney's Office with the investigation of the March 24, 2001, death of Torsten Karl Rockwood of Ahwatukee Foothills. Police are seeking charges of first-degree murder and filing a false police report against Megan Suzanne Vice. Vice repeatedly told detectives that she did not kill Rockwood. She said she made the call from a park. She said she was channel surfing and found Leykis' show, and she decided to call while Leykis was talking about strange things people do. Megan also said that Rockwood had killed himself just like it was reported in 2001 and said that before the incident happened that he would always threaten to kill himself. Strangely enough though, Rockwood's parents can vouch in Megan's behalf on this one. Rockwood's mother, Mary Francis Searle Rockwood, and one of his sisters, Aunica Brimhall, also told police they had heard Rockwood threatening to kill himself. He told his mother, "I'll shoot myself in the head before I let a shrink give me drugs."

This girl was really stupid for calling this talk show and saying all that she said. It sure looks like she did it and that she is just a moron for calling but I have to wonder if anyone is really that stupid. I mean, I'm thinking that she could have been just some bored poor soul out at that park looking for some attention and had no idea that it would escalate to this. The mother of Rockwood also saying that her son always talked about killing himself also makes it weird. I don't know, send her to trail!
