We Keep Asking The One Question These Police Officers Who Investigate These Random Acts Of Violence.
Why did the trailer come off the hitch? Will somebody tell us the truth already and we can expose and help save lives?
The officers let the pick up leave the accident scene...they should have impounded the pick up so a investigation as to "Why the Trailer Came Off The Hitch"
They will let critical evidence loose the "Chain Of Custody" and the insurance company of the killer's will destroy the evidence.
Let's See How The Media Follows up?
They will believe "Russian Collusion" before we say that since 1975 Over 27,932 now have been killed by "Passenger Cars That Tow Trailers When We Include The "Forgotten" and Hayrides and Parades.
