All people should face the consequences

Published: Friday, Jan. 25, 2013 1:15 a.m. CST

It never seems to amaze me how shallow people think we are. I have just finished reading the article about Sam Munz ["No charges in fatal motorcycle accident," Jan. 16].

There is not going to be a happy ending to this because the family has lost the love of their life. They need closure, and justice, for the wrong that was done.

This family lost a loving husband, awesome father, and one-of-a-kind grandpa. This accident was so unnecessary, and the person responsible should own up to her part.

Digging up stuff about Sam is childish. This man was someone who would do anything for anyone. Why is it people who ride motorcycles are different? The helmetless statement is getting very old.

For as far as he was dragged down the road, it wouldn't have mattered. As for the person who saw him not hand signal – really. This family needs a closure, and this is what it's gonna take. All people should suffer the consequences.

Note to readers – Information in the Jan. 16 article about the accident was taken from the state police's accident reconstruction report.

Yes. Sterling and Dixon have had bans for years. It’s time for Rock Falls to impose a ban.
No. It would be too great a burden for homeowners to dispose of fallen leaves in other ways.
