    Just saw this. Glad you are ok. Scary stuff.
  5. It makes no difference to me. The fact that this is even a thread means it makes a difference to some people. We don't see many threads asking if red hair is wrong. That's because people really don't care.
  6. I don't know. The tires probably had around 50K on them. (not the first set) We got that car in 2010.
  7. Hell, anyone can put a shoe on a horse if they watched someone do it on tv. They don't need to abuse animal. Now, as far as lawyers making laws. let's take your state, Michigan. Did you know in 2017 there were 13 lawyers in the legislature? 13 out of 148. Less than 10%. Were any laws passed? Do you think doctors shouldn't be doing medical research? How about doing away with police academies, because why would we want to hire people with specialized training to do a specialized job?
  8. I was having my oil changed on Thursday, and my mechanic called me nd told me the cords were showing on the tires, and I should get some. He said he probably wouldn't drive it without new tires. He could order me some, but I couldn't get in the next day to have him install them. So I called around and foiund a deal at Firestone, and drove over the Firestone store. They put on the tires and then at the end, they come out, of course, with the things that need to be done. First they told me I need brakes. Maybe, but my guy can do that for me. Then they gave me a printed sheet that says my battery is good, but it is showing signs of age and heat related wear and I should consider replacing it. I told them that the battery is exactly ONE WEEK, old. One week. It was brand new. So he just looks at me and says, ok, ignore that part. Scumbags.
  9. That's funny, because without them you wouldn't be able to thump your chest like this.
  10. BTW, looking for favors, payoffs or coercion? That doesn't happen. The prosecutors I know would never do that. I don't know any defense lawyers tht would do that. You've been watching too much TV. For some reason,, you seem to think everyone involved with the legal system is crooked.
  11. So if someone is charged with murder, and then evidence appears that it was only negligence, the charge should not be reduced?
  12. Charges can be reduced, or increased, depending on what the evidence shows.
  13. Again, it's not like that. People are not arrested without being charged with ,a crime.
  14. Not true. There has been a distinction between murder and manslaughter for centuries. Mens rea and intent have been part of the law for hundreds of years. You need look no farther than John Adams' defense of the British after the Boston Massacre.
  15. Most lawyers don't expect to win a traffic case. They try to avoid points, and if a person wasn't jerk, or have a terrible driving record, that is what happens. Any you're right, the client pays a few hundred dollars. Once in a while the leo doesn't show up (especially in Palm Beach County)and the case is dismissed. Then I look like hero.
  16. In Florida, simple traffic tickets are not crimes. They are called civil infractions. The point is to increase safety, not be draconian over a speeding infractio.
