I read with interest the headline in last Wednesday's Belleville News-Democrat. It stated, "Jesse White is why Matt Mitchell can't drive."
I think not. Matt Mitchell is the reason Matt Mitchell can't drive. The man was traveling at a high rate of speed (126 mph), talking on his cell phone and typing into a dashboard computer when he lost control of his squad car and killed two young sisters. It was not the first time he had been involved in an accident.
In my opinion, he is a menace behind the wheel and should never get his driver's license back. If it had been my daughters in that car, I, too, would attend every hearing that was held to review this case, just as Kim Schlau (the girls' mother) is doing.
