Have you all seen this? Hines Ward suspected of a DUI. But he SWEARS he wasn’t impaired by alcohol and by all reports, he cooperated fully with the arresting officers and was very apologetic. As of now, we don’t know the results of the tests that were taken at the scene so we’ll soon know.
But I did a little more looking and came up with this on his Twitter page. Then this on his Facebook wall. So, the new rumor is he wasn’t drunk but he was texting. Which he seems to think is okay and he shouldn’t be charged with anything.
I had the unfortunate task of telling my mom this winter that I really felt she shouldn’t be driving anymore. It was by far one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do but it got brought up by her and I was just honest. She’s got macular degeneration and she can’t see out the center of her eyes. She can see “around the edges” but not head on. So if someone was standing right in front of her car, she wouldn’t see that person but if a person was standing to the right of left of her center, she’d be able to see. She tried arguing with me that she could see “well enough.” Well that just got me started and I told her she was no better than a drunk driver or a driver who just smoked a joint or someone on any other drug. Well, that didn’t sit well with her and she did give up driving.
Does it really matter “how” you kill someone with your car? Does it matter if you’re texting? Or talking on your phone or if you’re drunk or on drugs? Is it okay if you’re looking at your radio or flipping channels or lighting a cigarette? What makes it okay to kill someone with your car? If someone would have killed one of my boys by running them over with their car, I probably wouldn’t have given a rat’s ass WHY! They’d still be dead no matter what the person was doing who took their eyes off the road and killed my child. Who really thinks they’re so self-important that they feel they can text or be on the phone while operating a dangerous vehicle? Of course those who do it claim “I’m really good at it” or think it doesn’t apply to them.
What do you all think? Would it matter to you if someone hit your child with a car and killed them, what they were doing at the time? Would it matter to you what “excuse” they used?
