    Why was someone who committed homicide someone with their car not arrested? The victim too poor and powerless and the driver too wealthy?

      The driver may face charges yet, but they didn’t flee the scene. Could the question of class and status be premature?

        You must be joking, right? Just have to look at the cops with a straight face and say ‘oopsies’ and then go on with their lives.

    Landa ran the dry cleaners on the corner of pine and Leavenworth. She was always friendly, and liked people. She was honest, she would not take money for something she felt you could easily do for yourself like sew on a button or something, I’ve known her for many years, she didn’t deserve a painful terrifying death because someone was oblivious wile driving there SUV. I know that corner, you can see clearly for miles down Pine Street you would need to be speeding or totally oblivious to pedestrians in order to kill someone. The Driver (We don’t get to know who she is) was probably looking right for cars and not caring or considering people walking. She needs to at the very least get sued. In my imagination it would be better if she were charged with third degree murder. We all make mistakes but this was just stupid. I think to myself, that could have been me, it could have been anyone in my building, I have crossed that street thousands of times. I’m not sure I feel as safe as I once did.
