    Rachael was my cousin’s wife. The way the police handle car chases needs to change. The criminal never gets hurt. Why don’t they start shooting the carjackers in the head. That will stop them!!!!!!!! Another senseless death. Two boys left motherless, a real tragedy!

    Such a tragedy. Throw the book at this guy and lock him up for life!

  3. Debbie Says:

    Good. He should face first degree murder and get the death penalty. That was a friend/former co-worker when she worked with us. It’s terribly tragic. Especially since she has kids and this idiot has done this before. Please lock him up so he can’t hurt anyone or destroy anyone’s life again. Praying for her family.
