I Bet This Grand Jury Got Away From The Prosecutor

The girl is traveling southbound on 121 near Grapevine (with reportedly twice the legal limit of alcohol in her system) and hits a highway divider causing her vehicle to end up in the inside northbound lane. Moments later, a northbound motorcycle strikes the wreckage killing the rider. The Intoxication Manslaughter statute is applicable if the person "is intoxicated and by reason of that intoxication causes the death of another by accident or mistake." "Causes" is not defined. There is no way the DA's office in Tarrant County recommended a "no bill" (a refusal to indict) since they love to jump all over these kind of cases. I'm guessing the grand jury, in a moment of rebellion, decided to ignore the DA.

What did you expect? Anybody notice that Obammy's AG no billed the black panthers for voter intimidation in Philadelphia? I guess they thought the bruthas would turn on them with their billy clubs and distract from their socialist agenda and spoil the kegger today at the White House.

Does Colt 45 come in a keg? I thought it only came in 40's.

It comes in whatever Obammy says it does.

Can't you just assume that everyone concerned did the right thing for the right reason? You are so cynical, Barry.

the right thing here lets start out by looking at what happened a drun girl decides to drive her car putting everyone on the road in danger then hits a divider and endup in the oncomming traffic where she hits a motorcyclist who was minding his own bussiness and obeying the law. now you tell me 2:23 how is that right? this lady is a killer and gets to walk while a family has had to deal wwith the fact that there loved one will never return home. there are no assumptions here it is plain a killer gets to walk

TRCC bankrupted and TDLR assumes control, get the rumors started. President "O" bankrupted the TRCC, what's next?

The grand jury shirked their duty. Anybody who drives drunk, causes an accident that results in the death of an innocent person should be indicted. Is there more to the story? How could the grand jury no bill her?

In Lubbock this case would be presented again to the next grand jury.

Barry is she one of your past clients you got off the "Hook" only to go out and now kill someone? Now wonder you have problems sleeping at night. I would too but then again its all about you making a buck. Sort of like blood money.

On the facts presented, there is no way to no bill this woman. Drunk to twice the legal limit? Causes a crash that killed another? What facts are we missing? I suppose the woman had connections and good family and all of this would cause distress at her country club. What else could convince the grand jury to no bill? Maybe a jury could find a reason to dismiss but no trial at all? Something's wrong.

Does this mean people on a grand jury are capable of generating independent thought at times?

(Question, how did she 'cause' the cyclist to run into her wreckage? Mind control?)

You, sir, should be next in her queue

7:48 - are you kidding? Her car flipped into the path of the motorcycle while he was driving in his normal lane. Very much unexpected and therefore I suggest it was HER fault. The guy is dead so he gets no vote in the matter.

The victims family should make the grand jury draw straws then beat one of them to death with a beer bottle.Don't s____me about being able to find their idenity.

are you stupid or a liberal idiot
the lady flipped her car into the lane in which the rider was traveling and he hit her car and was killed if we go by your thoughts it must have been the fault of the rider for following the law and using a road that is for all law abiding citzens with current d.l. to use is at fault. prehaps you would also say that a lady who is raped asked for it to be done to her. i hope that nothing bad ever happens to you and if it does then may there not be a dumba$$ like yourself to say things as stupid as this
thank god for sb 1967 a little protection agianst idiots like you

"the lady flipped her car into the lane in which the rider was traveling and he hit her car and was killed "

So, 10:22 pm, if someone's car breaks down on the interstate, and they are unable to move the car to the shoulder, and a cyclist flying along runs into the back of that car and dies, then the person whose car was stalled on the interstate should get the death penalty right?

Or is this more about punishing drunk drivers no matter the circumstance?

4:48 you dont get the picture here this lady was committing a crime when she hit the divider flipped over it and then landed into the path of a law abiding citzen who was killed due to her actions in this case they do happen to be driving while intoxicated. i imagine that you or someone you know has been poped for a dwi judging by your last remark and if that is so i am glad that it happened the fines lawyers fees and court cost etc are a great thing for people at least they are alive to pay them and were taken off the street before they killed or injured another driver. a life was lost here due to the reckless acts of this lady nothing we can do will ever bring him back but we can make sure that this lady thinks before she decides to drink and drive agian.
