    SO all Ms. Brown received was that She was charged with misdemeanor death by motor vehicle, failure to see when turning and unsafe tires. so let me get this right... I can not pay attention while driving and have bald tires, kill a motorcyclist and all I will get sited for is a misdemeanor death by motor vehicle, failure to see when turning and unsafe tires. well hell i might as well do this myself...... there have been a rash of unfortunatnt deaths to motorcyclists here lately and it wasn't their fault but the fault lies with the operator of the motorvehicle.... and the family of the killed person has to suffer... where is the justice in that??? she should have been charged with vehiclular manslaughter... because that is exactly what that was... manslaughter!!!!!
