    Here's something else the news didn't tell you: this wasn't a random act amongst strangers. There's history between all parties involved, and Lord knows what sparked this particular incident.

    SUZQMOM/The news article reads that the couple is accused of TRYING to run down a man with a car. You write that the man was your brother and that his leg was almost amputated. Who's right???

    All parties involved are guilty of something or other. None of them are completely innocent.

    Souns like it should be attempted murder to me unless the alledged victim did something dispicable enough to justify retaliation.

    Its too bad that that the people who ran him over have more rights than the victim. He can't walk and they are getting ready to send them home. Lord only knows if they are gonna give them another chance to kill the kid..
