No Justice. No Justice Of The Peace


Dateline: Abilene. Let's see, if a guy is riding in the back seat of a vehicle and accidentally fires a hunting rifle through the front seat killing the driver and causing a head on collision that injures five people, do you think an autopsy might be in order?

Not according to an Abilene Justice of the Peace who said there "wasn't enough evidence" to warrant one.

Huh?

NOT to get technical...but you do know that that picture is a shotgun, not a rifle, don't you? haha

In this case there were no questionable circumstances about the manner of death so no Autopsy was needed.

Autopsy's are not SOP but are typically only ordered for unknown or questionable deaths such as,suicides,murders,unattended deaths etc.

I'm surprised this type of thing doesn't happen more often as many drunk rednecks as there are driving around with "hunting" guns in their vehicles.

that is why JPs should have a law degree especially here in Wise County where they may have only one tooth and spit tobacco :)

There is NOTHING questionable or suspicious about this incident, after all it IS deer season in north Texas.

That's a pretty gun.

Was anyone reading "Child of God" in that vehicle when the accidental shooting occurred?

Goodness I was wrong...it is a rifle. I apologize, Barry. I guess I just thought I could tell the difference..ha

2:59 A cop fits your description better than a JP. I would add the word cocky to it though.

Isn't a Justice of the Peace pretty much a judge? The law is their business. I should hope they know it all.

BG-that remington 760 in 30-06 is the same type rifle that killed MLK! Barry, are you sending a message here? Are you a hidden hater? You've probably come near to committing a hate crime.

Guns don't kill people unless you hit them with it real hard.

It's the bullet that actually kills you.
