    I can't make sense of that situation.

    She rammed a go-cart with her car, because some kids she didn't think lived there were in it?

    Even if they were drug-dealing gangster kids, what the hell would justify that course of action?

    Incidents like these are what serious jail time is for (and the confiscation of driving licenses).

    did she just return from a spring break excursion or was she home and early that day saw kids riding their bikes up and down driveways?

    Parent says kid shaken but OK

    From the other article the kid is in therapy and not sure if he'll make it.

    what if the kids were driving erratically and swerved and the driver wasn't sure which way the go kart was going.

    I could imagine 13yo kids having a little fun with a go kart and obeying all traffic laws.

    that is one hell of a go kart to sustain such little damage from a head on collision.

    The outcome of the grand jury will be interesting

    This woman requires a psychological assessment.

    That's appalling. Any woman who would intentionally crash into a children's go kart should have been arrested. The police have a lot of explaining to do as to why she was let off. I hope the woman spends time in jail.

    The south has a lot of work ahead of it still to overcome its inbred racist attitudes.

    Hmm... Laughing with the Deputy... no charges after consulting with the District Attorney. Corruptions is afoot. I'm guessing a slap on the wrist fine, court records wiped. Must be nice to have "friends" in office.

    I hope there's a civil case in the works. It's easier to get justices in this sort of situation (protected by corrupt politicians) in civil court rather than criminal court.

    According to the story, the kids turned right, driving off the road onto the grass. Johnson crossed the opposite lane of traffic, jumped the curb and drove on the grass in order to force a collision. You'd have to be hopped up on something pretty good to have that kind of erratic reaction without intent.

    A combination of lamebrained vigilantiism and racial profiling.

    Is been almost 3 weeks and there doesn't seem to be solid stories out there or amplifying details of the event.

    I am going to pardon this labeled racist and spare her life until the real story comes out.

    continue on with the preparations for her hanging.

    That's ironic, considering she's been accused of forcing a head-on collision with young children that could easily have resulted in their deaths, and there's been no mention of any consequences whatever for this woman. And yet, you make her out to be the victim and in hyperbolic mortal danger.

    Interesting.

    For me this is a classic case of 'White Privilege'. :(
