Democratic lawmakers sacrifice two children and tie policemen’s hands in tribute to George Floyd’s memory

Two children in blue Washington state died after a suspected drunk driver went against traffic and crashed into them on Interstate 82, causing a common-sense tragedy.

An hour before the horrific crash on February 28, Washington State Patrolmen spotted a car moving at 120 miles per hour. Yakima Vestnik-Respublika.

Investigators believe the driver, identified as Keith Goings, was either drugged or drunk at the time.

Trooper Chris Thorson, a public affairs officer for the region, said a drug identification expert found Goings was “under the influence of intoxicants” and a blood sample was taken from him, according to the Herald-Republic.

Unfortunately, the police were unable to stop the speeding driver due to pointless state law of 2021 inspired by death in 2020 George Floyd in Minneapolis, police forbid cops from chasing a vehicle unless there is evidence that the suspect committed a violent crime.

“Under current law, (speeding) does not give us a good reason to start a pursuit,” Thorson said, according to the Herald-Republic.

Section 7 House Act 1054Police are prohibited from pursuing a vehicle unless there is good reason to believe that the driver has committed a violent or sexual offense or is driving under the influence of alcohol.

Reckless driving at speeds in excess of 110 miles per hour is not a likely reason for an officer to pursue him in Washington.

“It seems ridiculous,” said Sela police chief Dan Christman. Vestnik-Respublika.

Is second-degree murder a strong enough charge for a driver?

According to the court document, various Washington state Soldiers reported seeing Goings accelerate four times before colliding head-on with another vehicle, killing 8-year-old Delilah Minshew and 6-year-old Timothy Escamilla.

Their 5-year-old sister was hospitalized with injuries, as was their car driver Maurilio D. Trejo.

According to an affidavit, Washington State Patrol dispatchers received numerous 911 calls from members of the public who reported seeing Goings speeding in his white Ford Mustang and turning his headlights on and off before he collided with another car.

With a 2021 state law handcuffing police from pursuing suspected criminals, they were forced to let him go when he evaded them.

“Every time Keith A. Goings raced and dodged the soldiers, according to the probable cause statement, the speed reached 120 mph on February 28,” according to the Yakima Herald-Republic.

Yakima County Superior Court Judge Richard Barteld set bail of $100,000 for Goings, who faces four felony charges, including two counts of second-degree murder and assault with a vehicle.

The referee said that Goings had several chances to stop before he crashed.

“For about 70 miles that law enforcement pursued, Mr. Goings had numerous opportunities to stop, but this did not happen,” Barteld said.

“The defendant’s reaction when he was pulled out of the car was also a little disturbing when the car he crashed into killed two small children and wounded his father and brother,” the judge said.

According to the affidavit, when Goings was dragged out of his car, he “reportedly laughed and showed complete disregard for the occupants of the other car.”

This senseless tragedy is yet another reminder that the left crime protection policy carried out in the name of “racial justice” encourage crime.

Politicians Passing Laws That Depower Police Sacrifice Children on the Altar toxic awakening.

This is life in the blue state: children are dying because leftist legislators are tying the hands of cops to honor dead drug addicts. It’s disgusting.
