    What does his legal status have to do with anything? Legal status, gender, and race should not matter! An innocent man is dead because someone else made a stupid decision to drink and drive, end of story!
    My thoughts and prayers are with the family of the motorcyclist.

      What does his legal status have to do with anything?…..because gender and race does not make you a criminal…being here illegally does…that’s why…and if our govt did its JOB of rounding up the criminal illegals, and sending them to wence they came, this innocent man perhaps would still be breathing

        You sound ignorant anyone that wants to play the race card on this SHOULDN’T BE HERE being racist is a hate crime itself ! It could of been any race that hit this man it wouldn’t matter what matters is that HUMAN BEINGS STILL DRINK AND DRIVE and that was what caused his death not the suspect being Hispanic cause it could of been a white person then the focus would be on him being DRINK I’m white and I feel like anyone that plays the race card on anyone deserves to be in the same spot this man is in. In jail it is a hate crime sorry to say. Stop the ignorance already this is America and there is every race here if you don’t like it isolated yourself in a box cause your nothing if you can’t accept people for who they are not where they come from. God bless this man’s soul that was lost it tragic that drinking and driving happens cause this is a result of it and is not fair.
