Now, here is where most people have issues with this whole scenario. First, if this had been some ordinary Tom, Dick or Harry, I'm sure they would have been arrested, charge and incarcerated within months of the incident occurring. Secondly, they would have gotten a hell of lot more time than 18 months too! Third, to top it all off, she has just gotten bail for $200! I'm no lawyer but this is just not right. Not right at all. I don't think the law should be selective. For every action there is is a consequence. It should not matter who you are or what you do. What message does this send out to society? As long as you're popular enough or have enough money, you can, quite literally as in this case, get away with murder? My other big concern is what message this sends out to the family of the deceased man? That they don't matter? That the unlawful death of their relative is so insignificant that it does not warrant the full wrath of the law? Listen, I'm quite sure it was an accident for noone wakes up in the morning and says, "Hey, let me go knock down some people on the road today". It was an accident and accidents do happen. I can actually imagine the horror Dudu must have felt when she realised she had knocked someone down and worse still when he passed on. But she was in the wrong. She made a choice to go out driving, unsupervised when she knew full well she was not licenced to do so.
My prayers go out first to the Millward family. I pray they find peace even though justice may not be carried out. I also pray they find it in their hearts to forgive Dudu as forgiveness will be more for their own good than for hers (Even if she goes to prison forever, that will still not bring back the dead). I also pray for Dudu herself. That this tragic situation may somehow have a positive life lesson for her and that she can also forgive herself. Lastly, I pray for our legal system. They just need to get their sh*t togther, pull up their effin socks and get with the program. #ThatIsAll
