That’s not the issue. The issue is that a human being was killed and the driver, the top law enforcement official in the state, has likely concocted this deer story to avoid a death investigation. The most reasonable argument for why he stalled this investigation by inventing the deer story.
The big issue for me is that this is part of a larger pattern of public officials casually endorsing, committing, or otherwise concealing criminal behavior. That shit has to stop. Most of us go to great pains to follow the law, stick to the rules, and do our part.
