Seriously, this is the best you can do, a freaking traffic ticket? Where is the vehicular manslaughter charge. He admitted to people that he was in a hurry and didn't look carefully. So he negligently ends the life of a good young man and he gets a traffic ticket? It is about time for a new sheriff, one that will bring offenders to justice. Secondly, where is the useless DA?
