BELLEVILLE -- "Lawyers for the Illinois State Police trooper accused of causing a crash that killed two Collinsville sisters argued Thursday that the judge in the case must use reason and not emotion when deciding whether prosecutors can pursue reckless homicide and reckless driving charges.
John O'Gara and Jim and Julie Gomric, lawyers for Trooper Matt Mitchell, argued the charges should be dismissed because Mitchell, like other police officers in emergencies, aren't required to obey speed limit laws.
"We empower them to do things others are not allowed to do," O'Gara said, pointing out that police officers are allowed to wear a gun on their hip while driving a car -- a felony for anyone else."
Um, pardon me, Miss O'Gara, but there are lotsa places where non-police-officers are "ALLOWED" to wear a gun on their hip while driving, pally.
Gist of the deal is this; some fatass special person wearing a tin star was texting while racing to the scene of an accident, and like soccer mom's the nation over, he smashed into and killed innocent people.
ANY state, county, town, or anthill that brags so very often about how they willfully employ and empower only special folken to have special "rights" does not belong as a member of these United States.
