Colorado Democrat Senator Only Charged With Misdemeanors After Causing Fatal Car Accident

Funny how Politicians seem to be a "protected" class in this country. They commit a crime and get a slap on the wrist, even if they kill someone.

According to an article on the Daily Mail, last December Democrat Colorado Senator Suzanne Williams caused a fatal car accident that killed Brianna Gomez, a mother of three:

"According to police Mrs Williams’ SUV drove into oncoming traffic and crashed head on with a car being driven by Mrs Gomez’s husband Eric.

Mrs Gomez died in surgery after her unborn child, Curran, was delivered by Cesarean section."

Supposedly the Senator was "fatigued" and distracted" which caused her to drive her SUV into oncoming traffic.

But the Police recommended that Senator Williams be charged with Criminally Negligent Homicide and tampering with evidence but she was only charged with Misdemeanors:

"Police recommended that Mrs Williams be charged with criminally negligent homicide, four counts of injury to a child and tampering with physical evidence after the crash.

....Mrs Williams was accused of moving one of her grandchildren from the side of the road and later not being forthcoming if asked if he had been thrown out of the car.

....But in May a grand jury decided not to indict Mrs Williams, who was cited with misdemeanour violations."

In a chilling recording of the 911 call after the accident you can hear the Brianna Gomez's children screaming and crying for their mother. You can listen to that 911 call HERE.

I can almost guarantee that if the roles were reversed and it was Mrs Gomez that killed Senator Williams in a car accident, that not only would Mrs. Gomez have been charged with Criminally Negligent Homicide, but the News Media would have found a way to tie Mrs. Gomez in with the Tea Party.

But as it stands now most news stories, even the Daily Mail article, fail to even mention the fact that Senator Gomez is a Democrat.

Some years ago a state Senator fell asleep at the wheel driving down an unfinished part of a interstate highway that was under construction. This Senator drove around a "Road Closed" sign to get on this stretch of highway. He lost control of his car and drove off the concreted finished side, down into the unfinished dirt and rebar side of the highway. When the State Police found out where he was and he and his car were delt with, they gave him a ticket for driving on a closed road. He got off by pulling strings and said that it was just a mistake on his part. There were no charges. Talk about priviliged class. I drove for one block on a closed road one morning trying to get to my contract job on time and a cop stopped me and gave me a ticket and even though I was an airport employee and the road was finished and was to open two days later, it still cost me $110 dollars and it went on my record. So much for a commoner.
