Sally Ann Okuly Killed By Car On Her First Walk After Motorcycle Crash

Sally Ann Okuly Killed By Car On Her First Walk After Motorcycle Crash

“So very sad for her family, but the accident itself is unsurprising. In every city, pedestrians take their lives in their hands at every crosswalk. Driver inattention plays a big role, but some of it is simply poor driving practices -- "I'm in the big SUV, get outta my way."”

“Funny...my experience has been that it is people in the smaller little crotch-rocket vehicles that tend to zip around the rest of us as though we were part of their obstacle course believing they can squeeze into any tiny space between, weave in and out of lanes from one side of the road to the other or cut anyone off at their leisure. I find that most SUV drivers tend to simply plod along and that rudeness,egos or safe driving is an attitude not often reflected by vehicle size.”

“Well you are forgetting the size of the A pillar provides a big blind spot for drivers as this was a left turn. If she was crossing from the drivers left to right she could have been hidden by that pillar as it is close to the eye and takes up a lot of space. People keep having wreaks, forced the industry to increase the size of these things to meet new standards. You must see the problem in shopping centers all the time with foot traffic from your own car.”

“It's nearing Christmas, so the Roman Catholic church has to drag out some sort of "discovery" or "miracle". Happens around Easter every year, too. The church itself is a relic.”

“Lets try this again,the Roman Catholic church always does this at holidays to gather new members to support a church that has lost all authority for teaching of the Gospel of Jesus Christ due to the Apostasy.”

“I find it sad that all these comments have to do with anger and trade agreements and consumption, instead of the humanity of this story. A woman who believed the desperate plea...the man who had faith and courage enough to write it... The story says that "Zhang, who follows a spiritual discipline that is banned in China"...he is probably Buddhist. (There is a reason the Dalai Lama escaped Tibet.) He is probably a pacifistic, honorable individual who has endured something horrible. The sadness and soaring spirit of this story were what caught me.”

“And your comment relates how, precisely, to the story of this victimized family, their trauma and horror? Does it compassionately indicate your hope that this young mother recovers well? Does it indicate a desire that justice be swift and certain on the young mother's attacker? Does it even so much as say that, although wishing/hoping/praying may do no good, you still send that light of caring to them? I wish/hope/prayer that you will never have to endure what they have gone through.”

“I think many, if not most, of these "hauntings", in which one hears voices, sounds, song, laughter, are merely folds in time -- imprints which linger and play over and over in an endless loop. Countless individuals and ghost hunters have heard a sudden spate of choral music in Hannah House in Indianapolis, a site on the Underground Railroad where a long-ago owner held church choir practices. However, the eerie feelings, the terror and misery that linger in the cellar where escaped slaves, hiding out on their journey, died in a fire caused by an overturned lantern, are far more terrifying than any vision or voice.”

“I honestly can't tell from the video what sparked the initial problem -- why the motorcyclist first pulled alongside, then glared at the SUV driver, then pulled in front of him and stopped, causing him to connect. That's illegal behavior on the part of the cyclist. I can't tell what happened when the cyclists then surrounded the SUV--it's unclear. I can see the injuries when the SUV driver pulled away, but if I were surrounded by enraged cyclists and had a child in the car, I would likely have done the same. And I certainly can see the damage the enraged cyclists did to the SUV when it was stopped by traffic, bashing the windows in, smashing it. It will take a lot to sort this one out. However, it seemed that the cyclists did incite the entire incident.”

“I have read and watched enough evidentiary material to know that the Bush administration was complicit in the 9/11 attacks by standing back and allowing them to happen, in order to place the American populace in a state of panic that would permit the passage of laws that are directly adverse to the Constitution, such as the Patriot Act. Now the NSA cites those very laws as legal precedent for spying on all citizens. History repeats itself, always. Read the history of the rise of Nazi Germany, and you will see the parallels. They are terrifying.”
