Wrong Way Crash Kills 7 No One Charged, Not Even the Husband, WHAT?

Below you will find a very baffling AP article. The Drunk and stoned woman who killed herself and 7 others while driving the wrong way is not going to be charged, and neither is her husband who was in another car. . .WHAT? Why was that statement even made? Westchester District Attorney Janet DiFiore must hate men. There is not other explanation that comes to my mind. I can hardly believe my eyes these days about what our justice system or media is thinking. How would this be a chargeable offense to someone driving in another car, husband or not? Are women in this country not free and able to make decisions for themselves, and responsible for their own actions? It seems not by the implications in t the article below. What in the hell is becoming of this country? Again repeated ad nauseam, women want equal rights this means equal responsibilities also.



No charges filed in N.Y. wrong-way crash

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) — A New York prosecutor says no criminal charges will be filed in a wrong-way crash that killed an intoxicated woman and seven others.
Westchester District Attorney Janet DiFiore made the decision after meeting Tuesday with state police and some victims’ relatives.

BACKGROUND: All reported normal before woman’s fatal wrong-way drive

Authorities say Diane Schuler, 36, was drunk and high on marijuana when she drove the wrong way on the Taconic State Parkway in Westchester last month before her minivan slammed into an SUV. The crash killed Schuler, her 2-year-old daughter, three young nieces and three men in the SUV. Her 5-year-old son survived.

DiFiore says because Schuler died, no one will be prosecuted. That includes the woman’s husband, Daniel, who left a weekend family camping trip in a separate vehicle.

  1. I don’t know why anyone would want to charge the husband in the first place. The only one who should be charged, his wife, is dead.

  2. Exactly my point.


  3. Why would there even need to be an article stating that a dead woman would not be charged? Although, if he knew she was drunk and stoned (and he probably did), then shouldn’t he bear some culpability?

  4. jeana,

    No, there is a thing called personal responsibility. No one including you is responsible for anyone elses actions. I cannot imagine living in a world that has such laws in place, although this country is getting there real fast it is real wrong.
