The girl driving was 17 and had a learners permit. The sister was 19. The law there requires that someone driving with a learners permit must be accompanied by someone 21 or older. The passenger wasn't wearing her seat belt. They were on the road illegally...
And that somehow clears him of their death? It's funny how people try to justify wrongs with wrongs..
The fact that the cop was acquitted by a jury of his peers was a much more solid argument.

The reason your facts got attacked is because they don't matter. What exactly are you trying to prove by posting them? What is their purpose?

"I still think about it every day," Higbee said to reporters after the verdict had been read. "It's with us, it's with me. Nothing's ever going to bring those girls back. But, I think the jury said what we've been thinking all along: This was an accident, not a crime. I never went out there to hurt anybody, and I'm glad the jury saw that."
I think that this was an accident. It's very sad when any accident happens that causes the loss of life. [/quote)
Yeah it was a tragic accident that could have been prevented. He should realize that at least. Had he had his lights and sirens on those girls would more than likely be alive. There are many cases where accidents happen and people get jailed. Why is he so different? He should at least be suspended or fired or some kind of punishment. He is glad the jury saw it his way otherwise he would be in jail. I know it was an accident but it was his negligence that caused it so he should be punished IMO.
