What a piece of garbage she is. To leave him half dead in the street. Like a dog. Real class act!

This just makes me sick to my stomach. Very similar to what Christina Ayala did in Bridgeport though. She left the scene of an accident without even looking back. She also taught a great life lesson to the two children in her car too. She will make a great politician, won't she? What is this world coming to??? People do not hold themselves accountable anymore. It's all about what one can get away with.
