    The answer to "why" is answered by the first word in your second sentence.

    DMV
    You don't need to earn my respect.
    I give it freely.
    Whether or not you keep it is entirely up to you.

    WTF, biggest amount of bullshit I've read on here, it's the libs fault. FMD what a fucking cunt. 7 people dead because of an arsehole truck driver and you're making it political.

    It became political before the incident ever occurred when the now resigned DMV president allowed him to get his license back for prior offenses which was after ICE failed to snatch him up for disqualifying crimes against his VISA. He shouldn't have been here in the first place....period. Vigils & prayer circles aren't worth $hit. Step up to the plate and make a difference instead of your 'outrage' of the truth. Everyone loses.

    I presume that since you've put the blame squarley on the left that you are intimate with the political affiliations of everyone involved?

    It's Massachusetts. There are less than 1% conservative government employees or public servants there. They weed out the Republicans. Same here in Washington state. Have conservative friends in state positions who have to keep their mouths shut or risk ending their careers.

    You seem to be suggesting that this would never have happened if it were a Republican State.

    In Republican states, it’s the governor that commits the vehicular homicide of motorcyclists.

    Not to imply that at all. But the blame Trump first is dead wrong.
    As stated in a previous post, government moles tend to cover-up co-workers. And my reference to the police chief is in a heavily Republican state. This is a cry out for oversight. I doubt this leads to the desk of an elected official. This is a series of blunders and negligence by career moles who will work for either party. Fault lies with the people we don't elect.

    Quite a lengthy rap sheet.
    Makes you question the voracity of the CDL system. No wonder MamaTK doesn't like riding next to the big rigs....

    This guy and the failures to enforce existing laws and regulations is why a lot of people have no faith in new laws and regulation touted as being the answer to save lives or anything else. Most laws and regulations are to our detriment designed as revenue generators and the step by step control of people and little else.

    The driver is the poster child of how criminals do not follow the laws. If some new law could be proposed that affected all law abiding persons but let criminals skate it would have been put forth already. I bet it's being worked on as you read this.

    OK, now we have facts with names, dates, times and places and yes a lot of organizations failed to act appropriately considering the nature of this guys actions. One would think that a Green Card would have been denied based on whats been reported in his past.

    His employer also needs to be deeply scrutinized now to see how much they knew and did not act appropriately on as they may also be accessories to those seven counts of manslaughter.

    If the DMV was notifying employers of commercial licensed drivers then companies could be held responsible. Say the driver gets a DUI on Sunday, posts bail whatever and goes to work Monday, the employer knows nothing. That could easily be automated and if not then just is all the money being spent on?

    Had the guys license been revoked and the company still allowed him to drive with knowledge, they'd all be criminally negligent and maybe the charges would be more than manslaughter. The DMV should operate for the interest of public safety, if they can't do that they shouldn't exist. When minor things happen it can be a mistake, when a system fails it's by design or lack thereof.

    Things appear to have changed. I went through issues with drivers in Massachusetts 30 years ago and between law enforcement calling us with a heads up about arrests and our insurance carrier checking up on stuff like this it was fairly easy to keep tabs on things.

    We ended up firing about 1/4 of our drivers one year after we had hired a bunch of new drivers for expansion of our service because the insurance company sent an investigator to vet out a few claims for damaged goods and initiated an deeper investigation that revealed the existence of these drivers that had not been arrested yet but were using during working hours. The drivers who were fired were brought up on drug charges when we turned the results of the investigation over to the police who were waiting outside our facility to take the hand off from the insurance carriers security force when they escorted them out the door.

    Its hard to imagine with more mainstream and economical drug testing available, etc, etc, etc that this would be able to happen unless an employer was looking the other way.
