    So sad how life is so cheap, people can kill someone and drive away. God be with his family.

    We live in such a cowardly society. Its too bad I dont believe in Karma. I am endlessly amazed at how many hit and runs there are. My old roommate mildly rear ended someone on the 5 freeway in Burbank years ago. Then a van ran into the back of him. BOTH other cars sped off without dealing with the accident.

    I hope this coward that sped off gets what he deserves some day.
