    This is the only type of person willing to move to this area, meaning an illegal immigrant. It’s time that the white people of this area stop complaining and take responsibility for the environment they created, an environment that allows people like this to thrive.

    Why is the media (YOU) not talking about this man’s legal status in the U.S.A. The federal Gov’t should give this woman millions. It is their fault that she was hit. 100%! People are prosecuted for parking tickets. Illegal’s who hurt real Americans are not deported. You are supposed to be a news station. You are more like Fox, on this issue. POLITICALLY INCORRECT.

    So Sad. My wife and I were rear ended at a red light a few months back by a young man from the Dominican Republic. No driver’s license, no insurance. So how is this woman to be made whole? Wonder how many thousand we have in our area driving this way. They put everyone at risk with virtually no recourse of being compensated. Maybe if YOU carry Full Tort insurance there is a chance.
