Great news, closure is the most important part here. Without it Dans Soul would never be at pease. This will come to justice, no doubt this killer will pay, forever. There is no place in road rage for killing. I've screwed with many divers but never even thought of killing them. This was wrong.

Again, very nicely said. As time progresses I hope that Becca and Dan's family and friends can learn to cope with the pain of lossing a loved one! It will take a very long time to accept the events of this tragedy. My hope is that everyone will allow it to happen.
My thoughts are with you Becca, and Dan's family.

I am glad that this guy turned himself in. This has to be a great step to closure for the family. If there is one thing that I have learned with having a father as a lawer this stuff is all VERY confusing. Sometimes it will even seem UNFAIR. HOWEVER have faith in the system and hopefully it will all work out. I hope that for your sakes it all does. Remember Violence does not Beget Voilence. PEACE

Put your best foot forward!

Becca and Babybro, I'm glad the guy turned himself in. And I pray that justice will be served.

I also pray for strenght for both of you. I know exactly what you are going through. This guy being behind bars won't ease your pain. But it may help the healing a little. Try to stay focused on the friends and family that has been so suportive through this. I don't like the word closure. What's closure when you've just burried someone you love. The hurt and empty feeling will always be there. I think over time you just get used to it. That's why we all need to continue to pray for Becca and Kenny.

WOW!!!! Great news, I hope you are able to find comfort in the fact that the system does work. Truly sad, this entire tradgedy, it just makes me sick to my stomach. What ever your view, please everyone try to learn from such a horrible loss. It infuriates me that this guy left he scene, knowing without question what he had just done. You don't just runover a human being and then have some question as to if you actually injured this poor man. I hope he is made an example of, I understand accidents happen, but leaving the scene is what burns me. If he were concerned for his own safety, he should ahve immeidately called for help after the inccident. Inexcusable. A man has died becasue of this. Atleast he had the fortitude to turn himself in. I hope your family can begin the healing process with the modified capture that has taken place. It is in the hands of the law now, for better or worse. Either way, as someone said above, payment will come in some form or another. Good luck and God Speed. I hope the support from OSO has atleast brought a bit of a smile. Tough people last, tough times do not. Allan

Thank you
Very well said Jeff.

Glad they've got the person in custody. My deepest heartfelt sympathies to Becca and Dan's family.

Becca, whatever the outcome I hope that you are able to get a little piece of mind knowing that the individual is in custody. I am not going to even speculate on the situation or how you are feeling. My only wish is that somehow you and your family will be able to find strength from the people here at OSO and are able to overcome this horrible tragedy. My prayers go out to you.

Road Rage is a made up thing by the defense. ROAD RAGE is just another way out or MURDER.
Actually, "road rage" isn't a legal defense to ANYTHING I can think of. If I recall correctly, it is a term invented by psychologists and the media to explain a rash of interstate shootings in California. (I am not positive about where.) Try not to blame everything on the defense bar.

If you think about it, I think passing a car, pulling over, and getting out would be classified as "road rage", too. Don't get me wrong, it certainly doesn't justify killing someone, but it is still a pretty aggressive act. I just think people ought to think twice before escalating a situation. Every day, I represent normal people who escalated situations, or shot someone that escalated situations.

Several weeks ago, someone put up a humorous but accurate post about "Rules For A Gunfight". A friend e-mailed it to me earlier in the week. I would direct your attention to #23:

"23. Your number one Option for Personal Security is a lifelong
commitment to avoidance, deterrence, and de-escalation. "

Becca and Babybro, all the rest of us can hope for you guys is a healthy recovery from this tragedy, and that some good may come of it. Remember, we don't always recognize the good that comes from disaster, but it comes in unusual ways. It could be that this event takes a maniac off the streets, or inspires a bright E.R. tech to go to med school and specialize in trauma cases. The world is a funny place, but good arises in the strangest of places.


P.S. T2x really did say it best.
