I agree with spacey, we weren't there and we don't know. I also agree that it is for a judge and jury to decide. I'm not going to condemn this person automatically for the murder, although one thing is for certain, the driver deserves a ticket for failing to yield to a pedestrian in a pedestrian right of way crosswalk... Apparently he wasn't breaking any other laws and was otherwise driving safely as far as they can determine. There are thousands or more in Santa Barbara every day who essentially break this law while the pedestrians sit on the shoulder and wait, sometimes while the pedestrian lights are flashing. Sometimes when there are no lights, they are waiting back, like I do, waiting for a break in traffic. But other times there is relatively consistent traffic or the lights are flashing and they are on the edge of the curb waiting to step out and can't.
So here is what I dare you to do.. Go to random crosswalks throughout Santa Barbara and Goleta and put on a blindfold and cross. You won't do it, right? What about with a baby carriage?
On Driver Accused of Killing Pedestrian Pushing Stroller Appears in Court

Hershel thanks for letting me know that it all worked out in the end and they figured it all out and the money wasn't lost afterall!! I was really worried there for a few years..
Oh wait, you're wrong, the next day was 9/11 and all of the records and many of the people who worked in the budget office were killed/destroyed and so we never were able to figure out where the money went and saying that they were working on it or would have figured it out is a total cop-out..
Nevermind the fact that several Pentagon police officers and dozens of witnesses in the area saw and corroborated testimony that the commercial sized plane that flew toward the Pentagon which came in on the west side of what was then the CITGO gas station, when if you look at a map, that plane would have never been able to hit the light poles out to the east nor come in at the direction from which the damage to the Pentagon occurred which matched the path of the light poles.. Do you have any witnesses who saw the plane fly to the east of the CITGO gas station who can contradict all of these other witnesses, because I have not seen any... Or is it possible that something other than the airplane that everybody saw flying towards the Pentagon did the damage to the Pentagon and light poles? Was the large commercial plane simply a distraction to take everybody's eyes off the ball? Perhaps the CIA hired David Copperfield to pull off the Pengaton stunt, or maybe they simply used some of his techniques? If David Copperfield can do it, I think the CIA can do it, too. If David Copperfield can make a building 'disappear', the CIA can make a large commercial airliner 'disappear'. It may sound "crazy" but unfortunately all of the evidence points in that direction and the evidence for the official story constantly falls apart.

In fact it pretty much guarantees inaccuracy.
On Attempted Murder, Near-Riot in Isla Vista

spacey I'm well aware that the majority of Ukranians are not neo-nazis, but again that completely misses the point. The point was that the neo-nazi groups were funded to organize the protest in a sort of non-denominational fashion, even though they have many extremists in their own ranks who were very open about their neo-nazi affiliations but they did that so that they could get popular support.. Not only were they the most vocal, but they also are the leaders of the group that then was in position to take over the regime. They also carried out a false flag attack by positioning snipers who shot both police and protesters which was blamed on the sitting regime. This has intelligence op written all over it and you should know that by now.

Hershel, if you read the very first sentence of my post again you will see why your response doesn't make any sense at all. If you're going to make an argument against something I say you might want to read what I say a little more carefully. You can also google "Donald Rumself 2.3 trillion" and come up with plenty of youtube clips from mainstream news services if you want to see if what I'm saying is true for yourself. You can also see Cynthia McKinney putting Donald Rumsfled on record regarding the incident in question, but please refrain from ad-hominem attacks.

Yes, StockiesCastle has made a similar observation that I have noted before.....not that we were completely angels back then, I had a group of friends who had a penchant for passing around handles of Ron Rico (plastic bottle rum) and a 2 liter bottle of soda. Then another group of friends played edward 40 hands one night... one of my friends threw a bottle across the street and I was actually relatively sober at the time (I came a little late) and I don't know if it was the weed I'd smoked earlier or what, but I used my Jedi mind powers as the bottle flew from the backyard, across the street, hit the street sign without shattering and fell to the ground completely unbroken. After dancing in the street, he was arrested for littering (the bottle..) and one of my other friends was arrested for attempting to assault and officer (he actually just threw a plastic lawn chair into the street to create a distraction or in protest or something while they were hauling off my friend, the chair never got within 25 feet of anybody..charges were reduced or dropped)
But the point is, back then, they had open parties and alcohol was allowed to be openly served from kegs or otherwise. So there was no reason for every single person in IV to get incredibly drunk before leaving to go out and party - the point was to pre-party and get buzzed, then go out to IV and find a fun party and drink more.. then either get lucky or go back to your house or your friends house and smoke some bowls, listen to some music and pass out. Now half the people going out are already blacked out drunk with adderall up their nose.
The biggest change was not allowing alcohol to be served at parties anymore. That has completely changed the dynamic of the IV party scene and clearly not for the better.
Now we are going to hear calls for more and more restrictions, which is just going to cause more tension and more problems. Leave IV alone.

I think Sealion is saying that women commonly use the biological advantage of their sexuality in order dominate/manipulate/control/steal from men and that is morally wrong, even if it is not criminally wrong. I don't think he is saying anything about rape being "ok". I think his point is that one side is being recognized by the feminist narrative and the other side is not, when in fact the side they are virtually ignoring is definitely a "women's issue" and is significantly more predominant than rape. But since it happens to benefit women in many ways, perhaps this is why it is ignored?
Not to mention, it is maybe a bit ironic that the very same mechanism by which women use to control/manipulate/dominate/steal from men is the same mechanism that causes some (VERY few) men to rape - afterall, the element used to control/manipulate/dominate/steal is not by providing sex but by withholding it. So perhaps his point is that if women were not using their sexuality for the purposes of control and manipulation so much they may, just may be more open with it, although neither I nor he could say that with any certainty as we are not female and so have very little if any understanding of the female sex drive.. and women commonly either contradict and/or lie about it so the world may never know the truth.
I think he's also saying that by putting such a huge emphasis on rape and what they have identified as "rape culture" creates a culture that is anti-male rather than being anti-rapist. They seem to forget that women are just as big of a participant in what they refer to as "rape culture" as men are and most of the women involved don't seem to have a problem with it and actively encourage it, at least in my experience.
Both sealion and feminists do have something in common, both seem want to change the way men and women commonly relate to each other that can cause negative interactions between them.

Right, let's assume that the person who pushes a child into the middle of the street without looking both ways has no responsibility in the matter...WHO DOES THAT?! I don't bolt into the middle of the street when I smoke weed, were they on prescription medications or something? My point was I find it much more common for people driving to cross intersections while others are waiting, sometimes 4-5 cars will cross, than it is to see somebody bolt out from a crosswalk into an intersection in front of another car.
I guess all those other people who I see driving through the crosswalks are high on weed, even though they are in business suits or look like they are taking their kids to soccer practice, while I stop for the pedestrian, even though I'm high on weed, too. Or maybe it was just incidental, a huge tragedy and that could have happened to just about anybody??
dou4now, plenty of studies have been done and those who consume small to moderate amounts of cannabis are as safe OR MORE SAFE than sober drivers. In Washington state they seen an significant increase in cannabis use on the roads since it has been made legal medicinally and have seen increases in DUIs related to cannabis..... but what they haven't seen is an increase in traffic accidents.

Ya, don't push a baby across the street without looking both ways. Duh. A cross walk is not a sure thing, I see people waiting to cross at crosswalks and will have to wait for several cars before they cross. Should all of those drivers be charged with manslaughter? Probably not. They should be more careful and more aware of the crosswalks, but pedestrians also have a responsibility, for their own sake if nothing else, to be somewhat careful crossing.
As far as letting him have his medicine, if he was on some other type of medication they would be giving it to him if he were in prison. I doubt they will give him this medicine in prison. Why not?
Does it not also bother you that if sentenced, he will get 1 year for the manslaughter charges and 4 years for the cannabis possession charges??

Are you aware that on the day before 9/11, 9/10/01, Donald Rumsfeld came out in the media and admitted that $2.3 trillion of the Pentagon budget in the previous few years had been lost and not accounted for?
Are you aware that the very next day the plane that hit the Pentagon struck the budget offices where all of that information was held? Are you aware that many of the very people and documents that could have helped piece together the puzzle of the missing $2.3 trillion was stored in that corner of the building and were killed or destroyed? Did you know that ONE side of the building, out of it's 5 sides, had just recently been 'renovated' to help withstand an airplane or missile flying into the building? Are you aware of how easy it would have been, during that renovation, to place explosives into the walls for the simulated terrorist event?
Can you tell me when a better time would have been to reveal that information about the missing $2.3 trillion? I mean, 9/10/01 would have been optimum, to the day... What reporter on 9/11/01 or 10/11/01 for that matter is going to have the balls to ask serious questions about a missing $2.3 trillion from the Pentagon budget during a national crisis like that?
Are you aware that all of the elevator shafts in WTC 1 and 2 were renovated in the year before 9/11 and that the very weekend before 9/11 the top half of WTC 2 was completely shut down, no electricity? What about the witnesses who talked about all of the noisy construction on the empty floors around where the airplanes hit? They said it sounded like giant dumpsters were being lifted, moved, and then slammed back onto the ground above them. You needed a special key to access those floors.
The thing is, 9/11 truth is a lot more refined than it was in 2005 or whenever the first edition of Loose Change came out. There are at least a half a dozen or a dozen REALLY good 9/11 documentaries and most of them DO NOT overlap with a lot of the same information over and over.. You could literally spend 10-15 hours or more going over new evidence for 9/11 being an inside job and a cover-up. If you don't know that 9/11 was an inside job then you've either been hiding under a rock or you are just lazy.
Here is a short list of films I recommend on the subject:
