What's You Life Worth?

Paul Shusta's life only clocked in at $2,000.00
State trooper Scott Mittelstadt was charged with two misdemeanors Wednesday in an accident that killed a motorcyclist last year in Golden Valley. Mittelstadt , 27, struck Paul Shusta's motorcycle when Mittelstadt tried to turn onto Hwy. 55 eastbound from (southbound) Theodore Wirth Parkway. He is charged with careless driving and failure to yield the right of way. According to state guidelines, each charge carries a penalty of up to 90 days in jail and/or up to a $1,000 fine.
Not responding to a call (so no lights or sirens), failure to yeild to traffic and causing the death of a morotist; two misdemeanors. Shoe on the other foot: You or I kill a state trooper due to carless driving. You think we're walking with such a caress from the system?
