Solider Killed Not in Afghanistan but in Hawaii
I don't know about you but I just don't think that it is fair that a solider can make it through battle and not get so much as a scratch, well maybe only some scratches. But when they get back home on U.S. soil they get killed in a car accident, that was not even their fault. To top it all off the solider only had 5 days to go until he would be comming home for good. On June 18, Ethan Ranz a 23 year old solider from MN, was killed in a car wreck in Hawaii. This is a solider who recieved numorous metals for valor and bravery, including the puple heart and bronze star.
But the point is I don't think that it is right that a person who is traving in excess of 80 mph while comming up to a stop light and rear ending another vehicle. Weather the victim is a solider or not isn't the point it still isn't right. The reson is that the driver hadn't gotten charged for anything. Well in my opinion that is MURDER, and if not that it is a least manslauter.
I was just wonder what other people thought of this becuse we do see bad accidents all the time, and most of them involved excess speeds, should peole who kill someone in a motor vehicle, and it is proven that they were driving with excessive speeds be charged with more than just a simple speeding ticket and a slap on the wrist. I know that if I killed someone in a car acciednt I would feel tarible for the rest of my life. But some of those people just don't seem to care. Should they be charged with more. I know that in MN if you are driving above 20 MPH above the speed limit and there is someone else in the vehicle you can be charged with attempted manslauter so why is it that if you kill some one in a vehicle it seem that you just have the guilt to live with, yes that is bad but still you took someones life because of your stupidity.
