    That’s my aunt’s Lincoln which she and my cousin were in. Please pray for them. I hope the guy who caused this has to pay all medical bills for each of the several people who were injured and then gets JAIL TIME for making that U-turn and coming back into my relatives car twice …

      John, I know you are upset with what occurred but you and it appears others have no idea what happened. Since this is still an on going investigation, I cannot comment too much other than I did not make a U-turn into oncoming traffic. I pray all those who were hurt get healed and become better. I have a little bit more common sense then to just pull into oncoming traffic and risk everyone’s life. My God. Prayers sent to your family.

    he is not an attorney but his mother is. he has been arrested for domestic battery and his mother gets it all wiped from his record without batting an eye at the people he injures.

      Jenifer, You sound like a real intellectual so I will make this quick as I know you must have research to do in quantum physics or some form of science not yet know to the rest of us. The charge was dismissed because NOTHING happened, you can ask the woman who filed the charge and she will tell you the same thing. Sometimes, when a woman love a man dearly, and he says he is leaving the residence to go live somewhere else, a woman will call and make up anything, just like a man will I’m sure too, because emotions run high during that moment, if you have have had anyone love you or you have loved another you might know what I am trying to describe, and it is under Arkansas law that when a domestic call is made someone has to go to jail whether something happened or not. My mother has nothing to do with it, the woman signed a note stating nothing happened and submitted it the court and I was cleared for any wrong doing. I really hope you take the time from your busy schedule of solving world hunger and feeding the poor in your own city to consider other people’s feelings and not just speak non sense. As a psychology major I can tell from what you wrote that you have a lot of inner anger that is bottled inside. I would recommend you exercise and seek peace through religion or finding a psychologist that can assist you with your inner feelings. I hope you find peace.
