    This is what he gets. He killed a woman the exact same way last August and should not have been out in these streets. He was going 90mph and struck a woman and fleed the scene. Died the same way! Karma

      Obviously you know him, and that’s why you’re not putting your name. But he didn’t deserve that, and it was an accidental death at night. And he wasn’t impaired. Remember this, you also reap what you sew.
