MO. Politician chared with leaving crash scene

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- A Missouri legislator was charged with a felony Thursday for allegedly driving away after hitting a pedestrian with his pickup truck.

Authorities say state Rep. Brad Robinson was driving the truck that hit a 46-year-old man south of St. Louis in the early hours of New Year's Day. His wife, Tara, had told police she was driving, but authorities say a high school's surveillance camera captured the couple switching seats in the truck moments after the accident.

Missouri definitely has some issues with their lawmakers. This is the 6th one in a year that has been charged with breaking the law.

I agree and in this area for the most part the cops are not that bad. The judges and worthless lawyers as well as the politicians are terrible though.

We have people here getting arrested for minor things that yeah they should be charged for and released with maybe some unsupervised probation or community service, yet they end up getting months in jail. Then you have judges and politicians that get caught drinking and driving or scamming money and they get probation a few days in jail or nothing at all. The sad part is the judges are the biggest problem how they manage to retain their place is beyond me.
One example in a small town near here there is a family that is known to cause a lot of trouble mostly by the group of them jumping one person in the dark and nearly killing them (not kidding these people but the hill in hill billy). Well one of them got a 14 year old girl drunk he is 30 – 40 and had sex with her. They are trying to say that she gets around and she was the one to provoke it. While he was taken in the judge released him and he now runs free because the judge and prosecuting attorney fear for their lives. Those who want to find the guy can’t find him while others still see him around when there are plenty of people around. This is an example of how sad most of them are.

I’m just a few hours south of St. Louis, I am not sure about the judges in the area up there but I would guess he will get off with little to nothing. Since he left the scene I would place money that he was drunk. If that is the case I would like to see the book thrown at him, drinking and driving is a major pet peeve of mine.
