Adam it is clear that you are saddened by the loss of your friend, and I hope that her family will be able to move on knowing that they will once again see her one day. However, you were not at the intersection that day and do not know what actually happened. There is no need to try and make the man and his grandsons out to be horrible people or try and make them feel as if it is their fault that Janis lost her life. It just happened and pointing fingers at people will not change the outcome of what has happened. You should focus on Janis and her family and stop pointing your finger at someone when you don't know what happened!
I'm not sure why I'm posting another anonymous comment. I'm beginning to feel that it is a sign of cowardice.
Who, for crying out loud, is trying to make the man a villain?? Can you point out anywhere in my posting that I did that? SOMEone ran a light. I'm not saying that it was one or the other. However, if you can say with a straight face that people should not take this as a lesson to be careful when driving, then you should not be on the road yourself.
Frankly, I am fed up with overly righteous people who think that they can dictate to me what I should or should not feel. Do YOU know what happened? Do YOU think people should be allowed to drive with anything less than full caution?
Try this: ride a motorcycle on the streets of any relatively busy city or town. I guarantee you will get an up close and personal look at the lack of attention paid by some drivers.
The fact that you respond how you do, and that you do so anonymously, tells me a couple of things: you clearly did not read the posting carefully, but instead just assumed what you wanted to; and that you feel superior by trying to tell other people what to think and do.
I apologize to others for the harshness of this rant, but I'm fed up with anonymous postings and people who post without reading carefully.
