      Wow, thanks for such an insightful post counselor. I’m sure that the fact that you were actually there at the scene of accident, is why you came to such logical conclusion and not because the article already said it was a misdemeanor right?

      Weren’t you one of the people who was blaming the moped rider, when the story first came out? Now that you find out he was hit by a person who is apparently a latino, you are all over that. How predictable.
