Ms. Burke, first, let me say. I am sorry for your loss. The problem with the news media now, it has become too political. And driven by rhetoric. If it does not involve race, politics, a public employee, religon, sexual orientation or any other agenda, it iwll not get reported. The news has become entertainment and a means of pushing radical agendas on all sides of the spectrum.

Warrenproud, you dont know jack crap about this. Driving hours are more regualted than ever before. I drove semi back in my younger years, our drivers logs were checked DAILY. Many of todays trucking companies install GPSs, they KNOW if a driver drives over the legal time limit, heck they even know if a driver is speeding. As far as higher speeds, take a look, many roads have LOWER speed limits for trucks. You are way out of your league on this one lady.

People do care. The media doesn't care because it didn't affect a non-white.

I care about this story. I remember reading about it when It happened. You are doing a wonderful job by keeping the story current and meaningful just by your letter.

Ms. Burke, I'm saddened by your sister's circumstances and hope the courts will bring some type of justice for your family. Yes, there are people who care about these types of crimes but, sadly, the general public never hears your side of the story unless the news media does indeed report on it.

WarrenP, you open your mouth and spew out stupidity, driving hours are more regulated today than EVER before, talk to a trucker and maybe you'll get some insight before you talk stupid again.
