Here's a nice little potential injustice...
Michael Toter, a 16 year old kid is being charged and tried as an adult for reckless vehicular homicide. He faces 2-6 years in prison.
Now his might make some sense if there were drugs or alcohol involved, but in Toter's case, there weren't. The basis of the recklessness allegation is that he was speeding--9 miles over the limit in a 45 mile an hour zone, on his way back from school.
Let's be clear, there is some basis (though feeble) to prosecute Toter. The problem is that this sort of reckless crimes should be prosecuted in juvenile court where there is flexibility in sentencing not adult court where the result is a prison sentence for a decent kid who got into an accident.
As is the policy here at INDEFENSIBLE, you should know that District Attorney John Newsome is the guy responsible for this utterly foolish decision.
