@ Due Diligence:

I did go to law school. Case law is subjective, as well as upon situation. What is your point? Are you advocating for all people who cause auto crashes to go to the clink, too? Please cite where all motorcycle deaths should at least result in the prosecution of homicide. I'd like to read it. Under which rare circumstances should one NOT be prosecuted for Negligent Homicide. I'm sure there's case law out there that would dictate such, right?

@ In Your Opinion: Negligent Homicide requires that Criminal Negligence be met. Where does it state anywhere that a driver must first look once, thrice or ten times? Nowhere, thatís where. By your argument, anyone that causes a car crash should at least be charged with Aggravated Assault, because then their actions would be at least Recklessly. Screw it. Criminal Damage, too, while we at it, and throw in Endangerment as well. Car crashes are now prison-bound for all. I wish you luck during your next rear-ender. Letís hope you donít run into a motorcycle at a stop light, because you will be looking at hard time.

Most of the oldtimers are not going to Laughlin because of the harassment from LVMPD. They are riding to Lake Havasu, Az! Down there you are treated better, prices are not jacked up so high. Ride Safe.

@ ARS 13-105.
Rather than just citing a particular statute of your choice from http://www.azleg.gov/ArizonaRevisedStatutes.asp.
You should pay a visit to Westlaw. There you will find the entire statute as written, the "pocket part" and annotations. Then read the case law on the subject. If you went to law school you would know this.

@ ARS 13-105. This is your opinion. It is obvious that the driver of the truck did not "perceive a substantial and unjustifiable risk ". Did the truck driver look a second, third time or did he just "gas on" to get into traffic regardless of what he did or did not see? Your argument is flawed and you are not being objective. Bring the charge and if it does not "hold water" the court will dismiss the charge "without prejudice & in the interest of justice". "negligent homicide" is not relegated to DUI nor traffic. Negligent homicide is causing a death via negligence. Run this past the Mohave County Assistant Attorney Megan McCoy of Georgetown U.

(d) "Criminal negligence" means, with respect to a result or to a circumstance described by a statute defining an offense, that a person fails to perceive a substantial and unjustifiable risk that the result will occur or that the circumstance exists. The risk must be of such nature and degree that the failure to perceive it constitutes a gross deviation from the standard of care that a reasonable person would observe in the situation.

Not seeing an approaching vehicle while navigating a vehicle within a roadway under normal circumstances does not apply. An example of Negligent Homicide normally involves DUI, Criminal Speed, or other negligent act.

While im very sorry for the loss of any fellow rider, the fact of the matter is. They are roadways, they are dangerous, accidents happen out there. Any one of us can accidentally cause someone to crash, would you advocate sending every person in a fatal accident to prison? Im sure the people who caused these accidents cant sleep at night and are deeply troubled by what happened as well, and just like the families of the deceased, they have to live with it for the rest of their lives as well. In my experience, forgiveness is the best way to heal. Anyways, thats just my perspective

Article comment by: Widowed from Negligence of another!!!

Couldn't agree with you more (Ride on Kingman DA) as its been 5 months since my husband was killed by an inattenative driver. But only getting failure to yeild... Its disturbing that the police didnt charge this driver with negligent homicide, they just ruled it as a simple accident. But that accident took the life of a husband, father, brother, son and friend. So a simple fine and points on a drivers license is all one gets for killing someone.

@DA

While I personally knew Mr Farmer a few years ago and I think it is an awful tragedy what happened....you can hardly call a 71 year old from out of town one of the "Good Ole Boys".

Why do they call it a "run"?

Article comment by: Ride on The Kingman DA

A few thousand bikers should ride in protest of the ignorance of the law for the killing of a local biker by the Kingman City Attorney two weeks ago. "inattentive driving" for killing a biker with a horse trailer? Even though the state of Arizona does not have a law specifically making vehicular homicide a crime there are other laws that cover "criminal negligence", "negligent homicide", "aggravated assault", etc. But the City Attorney/DA let the "good ol' boy" slide. And no mention of the truck driver's name anywhere in this paper. Hmmm
