    He’s a Tool. Has anyone ever talked to him before? Whether it’s at first sight or 2 minutes after hearing him speak, 99% of all people will think Tool!

    Why would you not charge him? He was the driver and responsible for the passenger’s safety. If a drunk person is driving a car and kills someone due to reckless behavior, they are held responsible! This is NO DIFFERENT.

      If he has a good lawyer he just might get off. There is a Iowa law that says if you ask for a ride with someone you accept responsibility for your own well being. In other words, if she wanted a ride it is on her. They can get him for D.U.I. but that is all. At least that used to be the law.

          Bull SHIT. It was a law because I know someone who was found innocent because of it. It might not be any more but at one time it was. I’ll bet it is still on the books.

        I didn’t think that Iowa had a comparable negligence law. But after some research, it seems that it might.

          They may not have it now but they certainly did back in the day. They are always making laws that overrule old laws, but very seldom do they take the old law off the books.

    So sad! Her and his children have to go through this. Neither one put the most precious things in life first. Both made very bad decisions that day.

    Imagine that, who would have thought that they would charge the (operator) of the motorcycle.
