I'm so sorry to hear this unreal news that he was allowed to walk away from this charge.

We will continue to pray for your family at this time and hope you can get peace and direction through all of this.

Tim

I'm so sorry to hear this, Kevin. From a comment I read, it says that your father was in the bicycle lane. Cars aren't allowed in the bicycle lane. So, no matter if he was under the influence of any drugs or not, he was driving in an area not allowed by cars. Does that not matter or did I read that wrong?

Normally I would say something like, "Oh, they are letting him go so he can do something even worse". Honestly though, what can he do that is worse. I suppose it will take him running over a group of kids or killing an entire family before he is finally responsible for his actions.

Very sad that his occured.

Try to stay positive Kevin.

Kevin, I would like to pass along my compassion and love to you and your family. I wrote a letter over the weekend and placed it in the mail this morning.

If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, has down feathers like a duck, the justices in the area think its a bunny rabbit? If he didn't want to be labeled a felon, then perhaps he shouldn't be partaking in activities that are illegal.

Wow...just...WOW...I have no words.

Kevin, I wish you and your family the love and strength to get through this.

Outrage isn't the word. There IS no word for this.

Oh Kevin, I can't even believe this! If nothing else, I hope the public outrage will change some things.

This is an outrage. Kevin, I do know how you feel. My grand father was killed by a drunk driver while crossing the street in front of his house. The driver got off with a slap on the hand. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family, as I know this news breaks you heart.

I am so sorry Kevin. I can't not imagine dealing with this miscarriage of justice on top of losing your dad. My prayers are with you and your family as you try to cope.

Kevin,

I'm not a lawyer and I definitely don't know the laws in Florida, but here's just one case where the family filed a civil suit - and prevailed.

No the facts are not the same, but I just wanted to see if a civil suit might give you what you're looking for - justice for your Dad.

Perhaps any of the attorneys onboard here can give their unofficial opinion on pursuing such a suit.

Kevin, I wish I had some magic words to make everything okay with your family and to tell the people in the Florida justice system how terribly wrong they are. It just doesn't make any sense. My prayers are definitely with you and your family.
