...wouldn't matter the cop was still going to hit the car regardless of the little boy was in the seat belt or not...the cop should had not ran a damn stop sign in the middle of town going fast....

correct me if im wrong but wasnt this little boy in custody of the state neither parent had custody of him. yet they are the ones filing suit against the county . ALL partys in this accident were wrong .little boy should have been in care sear and the cop should have been more careful in city limits.

Momma should have gotten off the drugs and he wouldn't have been with the ones who didn't buckle him in a seat belt. Shame on the officer for driving too fast, shame on the woman for not having him in a car seat, but my opinion is the biggest shame on Jennifer for not getting her shit together and being a mom in the first place!

wow your right maybe she should had got her shit together ...but wat if that baby was with her...he probably would have not lived as long as he did ...when its your time god will find a way to take you...nothing we could have done...just like when the guy who broke the law,that lead the cop to speed through the intersection ...while on a different path ..a van with a lil boy with stepdad who made tragic mistake ...just as well as the cop...5 people actions got that baby killed... let god judge this one ...

Sad thing is the real dad is a fucking loser, he was high as hell at the funeral. Everyone involved except the police officer is a loser! It's just a lottery ticket for that family! I saw several cans around town collecting money for funeral expenses! Sad thing about this is, I know for a fact the funeral home did not charge I dime, the only cost involved with that funeral the trustee paid for! How sad is that! They just want to profit off his death

I heard that Judge Crowley asked to be excused from hearing the case, is that right?

Have not heard that one. It doesn't matter who the judge is, im sure they will still get something, the insurance company will find it cheaper settle than to fight it.
