I have yet to figure out how/if Oakland Co plans to spin their way out of not issuing Patterson, and his chauffeur, a retired double-dipping State Trooper tickets for not wearing their seat belts, via The Detroit News
The Oakland County executive and the two drivers involved weren't wearing seat belts, police said Monday.
No one has been charged in the crash, which is under investigation, Auburn Hills police said. Patterson's eastbound vehicle entered the intersection of Opdyke with a green traffic signal, and the Passat was westbound on Walton turning on to southbound Opdyke with a flashing yellow signal.
"It appears the driver of the Volkswagen failed to yield the right of way, causing the crash," said Auburn Hills Police Deputy Director Thomas Hardesty in a news release Monday.
"Due to the extent of injuries to persons involved in the crash, this case will be presented to the Oakland County Prosecutor's Office when the investigation is complete," according to a news release. "No decision will be made on the issuance of citations until after the case is reviewed by the prosecutor."
Patterson was riding in the front seat of the car, Auburn Hills police have said. Michigan law requires drivers and front-seat passengers to wear seat belts. Violators could face traffic citations.
Could face traffic citation? WTF? It's either Rule of Law, or call the whole system in Oakland Co a Wild West free for all. At this point, all I know is that if I were the driver of the Passat, I'd be on the horn with one of the legalese merchants that's well versed in modified comparative negligence seeing that the prosecutor and the police involved still have their collective thumb up their ass on a cut-n-dry seat belt matter involving their Dear Leader.
Hmmm, as an aside let's see now... pushing the DIA Tax .. targeting the only Republican on the CD-11 ballot with a costly primary, Big Government "write-in" smearing crony...
