Time and time again North Carolina keeps refusing to:
Make it a "Misdemeanor" if a person is towing a trailer without a "Safety Chain" that is rated to tow a trailer and no matter what the state the trailer is registered in if it enters North Carolina even from a NO SAFETY CHAIN state like South Carolina the police in North Carolina are to charge anyone with a "Misdemeanor"
Two make it known that if anybody with any trailer even registered out of state kills anybody with a loose trailer then they are charged with "Involuntary Manslaughter"
Then we note that at first even the police....at first stated...
Lt. Sean Magill says the trailer detached from a pick-up truck and then collided with a Jeep, killing that driver.Magill said the trailer did have safety chains
We noticed on the photo's that in fact the trailer did NOT HAVE SAFETY CHAINS. Who is colluding with who?
What we are seeking? It will be called " Regina's Law" in North Carolina See who she was and see the pain all caused by a person who decided that nobody else behind his trailer was worth it.
Would he place his baby...or a family members family's child in a car seat for a baby and not secure it? Yes Or No?
