Here are a few questions? How many people have a family friend or member who has done something awful? Who has not experienced personal tragedy? Mother, father, son, daughter, aunt, uncle, friend or distant cousin? Now how can someone else be responsible for those actions? They say people who live in glass houses should not throw stones.
Kevin Freibott being a police officer has nothing to do with what happened that dreadful evening on the Pulaski Skyway.
If he worked for Starbucks, would Starbucks be responsible, especially being he was off duty and out on sick leave. Even if his green apron was in the back seat, Starbucks would not have been responsible or any other corporation for that matter. You know it and I know it.
The sad part is that an accident lawyer coming along to jump on this was inevitable.
Lawyers period are going to have a field day. Will the state of New Jersey sue the boy's father for negligence if it turns out that the decease child was not strapped in properly?
Does the fact that Freibott was a law enforcement officer have anything to do with the truth which is he made tragic mistake. Maybe the Honduras government will step in and sue the doctors who cared for Freibott's child who tragically died of cancer at age 3 because this may have been such contribution toward poor judgment. It's stupid. It really is. Furthermore, to say that Mayor Healy is nepotistic is dumb. Look at his
family. The three oldest earned professional jobs through education, training and civil service testing. The youngest is in college studying her heart out just like so many other kids. Healy's wife is a compassionate nurse. Nepotism where and why? But sue, sue, sue.
This is the society we live in. It's sad.
This tragic event has nothing to do with the police department, the City, Mayor or former police chief. I'm willing to place a bet that the lawyer will sue the Merit Board for reinstating Freibott as well as Middletown for placing him in "good standing."
If he worked part time at McDonalds, could they go after them too? Settle for an unhappy meal.
This incident was a tragedy. Unfortunately, sorrow turns to anger, anger to bitterness and then the accident lawyer takes over. It turns to greed but greed won't bring back the child from Honduras or Freibott's baby either.
We should pray for all involved. Prayers actually matter. Remember God don't like ugly.
And throwing stones in glass houses is ugly.
