Why are lawyers considered to be professionals? Lawyers are merely word Technicians who manipulate words to make money. We all know the Law is blind to Justice, but why is that so? Pumar's frantic speeding, based on scientific analysis, was so negligent as to show he had no respect for others nor did he have any sense of responsibility. He needs to pay money to Ware's family and spend a lot of time in prison.

According to the initial reports here, Pumar got out of the car after the accident clutching his cell phone. How long had it been in his hand? Is that the first thing you grab after totalling your car, or was he on the phone while ripping down California Street at nearly twice the posted speed limit?

The only surprise about this is that it doesn't occur more often. I have been stopped at an intersection on California twice when a car from behind pulled out and ran the light. I was able to follow one to his house and photograph the car. But because the incident wasn't observed by an officer, nothing could be done.
