    My cousin passed away today...

    I need to vent a little... I lost my cousin today. She was 37, and a sherriff's deputy for the town she lived in.

    her younger brother, who is 34 has already had to bury his mother due to cancer, and his father from a heart attack. and now he will have to bury his only sister.

    the reason i need to vent is because she died today after being in a wreck sunday afternoon while off duty.

    the jaggoff who killed her crossed over the center line and broadsided her car. she had enough time to swerve apparently but not to avoid him, so he hit her broadside instead of head on, and his van literally climbed up the side of her car.

    witnesses said that he was clearly at fault. he fled the scene of the accident in another vehicle with someone he knew, but was captured yesterday.

    what makes it even worse is that this guy had been arrested for driving with a suspended liscence 6 times previously. 6 freaking times.

    this idiot was in bond court today at 4pm, and the judge gave him a bond of $25,000. in SC, you must only post 10% of your bond to be freed. the judge gave him this bond even after being made aware of the fact that my cousin was a law enforcement officer, was on life support, and that her death was imminent, and with full knowledge of the fact this guy was a multiple offender.

    WTF??????

    after talking with the doctors and considering what my cousin would have wanted, they removed life support around 6pm today. within ten minutes she was at peace, thankfully.

    her injuries included two broken ankles, a broken leg, punctured lung, several broken ribs, multiple facial lacerations, fractured vertebrae in her neck. they tried two surgeries to reduce the swelling in her brain, but nothing worked.

    so now that she has passed away, maybe he will get to spend a night or two in jail due to the new charge of vehicular homicide.

    or at least until we bury her on friday...

    That is horribly tragic. Your family has my prayers. The judges actions are very hard for me to understand, so I can't imagine your outrage.

    Sorry brother...

    I am here in SC also and I know about the ridiculous drivers we have out here. Hope your family can move along in this sad time.
