[IP] Diabetic in jail
So what's the scoop on the diabetic in jail?

There was no criminal intent,
but it appears the diabetic was seriously negligent in some way. Diabetes should
not be an excuse for this tragedy. He should be charged with reckless driving or
vehicular manslaughter at the very least. I don't know the case law or the
statutes in Florida, but not controlling a diagnosed disease and causing two
deaths puts the defendant squarely at fault.
I am concerned that a person
with diabetes should receive proper care while in jail, however. Is he still in
jail? I can't believe the guy wasn't released on his recognizance due to the
diabetes, or at least given a low bail amount. Someone tell me, so I can quit
this ranting: what's the story here?
