Homicide or Accident in Tony
Stewart’s NASCAR Scandal?

Daily Beast, by Robert Silverman

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 8/11/2014 5:03:59 AM

Three-time champ Tony Stewart is reviled—and beloved—for his take-no-prisoners, borderline-unhinged attitude. But we may never know whether he hit Kevin Ward deliberately. We all know how dangerous competitive racing can be. It’s not a regular occurrence, nor is it in any way the reason NASCAR has vaulted to the second-most watched sport in the United States behind football, but when you have drivers barreling down the track at speeds that can approach 200 miles per hour, the question is not if but when a horrific death will occur. What you don’t expect is for a car to collide with an unprotected driver.

I was a horrible accident and those attempting to make it more need to stop.

Vehicular homicide. To me, at least, it looked deliberate.

This isn´t the first time Tony Stewart has had what´s coyly known these days as "anger-management issues" -- and
around the tracks as "red mist."

He shouldn´t be charged with murder because the driver who died walked onto the tracks. If Stewart could have avoided him and willfully did not, he´ll burn in hell one day.
When a train conductor hits someone that was on the tracks he´s not charged with murder. I can´t see why this would be different.

Sadly, I believe that the anger management issue was Ward´s. Only a very angry and immature driver would walk on to the track in the middle of the race. There was a car directly in front of Stewert and the speed the cars were traveling it is doubtful that anyone saw Ward until it was too late.

Very sad. Ward was being a stupid jerk. Stewart was being a stupid jerk too -- trying to scare Ward and cover him with dirt. As a result a pedestrian was killed by a vehicle. No doubt that this constitutes murder in the second degree:

2. Under circumstances evincing a depraved indifference to human life, he recklessly engages in conduct which creates a grave risk of death to another person, and thereby causes the death of another person...

Stewart´s career is over, and he will be fighting a 4-yr jail sentence for years to come

I find it disgusting when internet experts think they conclude murderous intent on behalf of Stewart. You don´t when or if Stewart saw him and you don´t if he hit the gas to scare him or just to get away from him or in attempt to avoid hitting him.

I agree #9. It must be great for some to be able to read the minds of people they have never even met. IMHO this was an accident that did not need to happen and it was definitely NOT Tony Stewart´s fault. As for his career being over because of Ward´s rage, that is ridiculous. Prayers go out for the Ward AND the Stewart family.

Stewart will settle for gazillions in a civil suit, his past history of "issue" will be held over his head.

Whatever happens, you know he felt his car run over Ward and that´s with him forever. Preaccident Stewart is as good as dead himself.

Some of us posting here actually do have some experience behind the wheel -- on dirt tracks, on road and touring circuits, and even on paved ovals. After competing for a few seasons, even at the SCCA level, you develop a feel for what’s going on. (If you don’t, get used to seeing a lot of blue flags – which is how the track marshals let you know that there’s a race taking place and you’re not in it.)

You don’t need to be personally acquainted with a driver, or indeed any other person, in order to infer his intentions. You simply need to know how to interpret what you’re seeing – an ability that´s sadly lacking, in all too many areas, in a majority of the population.

It´s beyond my imagination´s capability to imagine that Tony Stewart meant to murder this young man. Ward was almost asking to get hit when he got out of his car on the track. Road rage!!! (on Ward´s part) I´m not saying Stewart did everything right, not at all. But there´s a possibility that there was not enough time to react in a way that would have spared Ward.

This isn´t the first time, but hopefully it will be the last, that an enraged driver steps out of his totaled car to shake his fist at or otherwise try to force the driver who bumped him to slow down or swerve and thus lose position. It´s done in the heat of the moment, it´s stupid, and this time it was deadly. Ward bears the primary responsibility for what happened. Stewart may be a hothead, but at those speeds and on that type of track it´s absurd to assume he could simply swerve to avoid hitting him.

Just a small tiny error.........this was NOT a NASCAR race. With the news reporting people get it´s impossible to know what to believe. If reporters don´t even bother to get the basic facts straight, why believe they know what they are talking about. Fact Check? Doesn´t seem to be important anymore, news is what they say it is, whether it´s true or not.

I´ve watched a number of these races and noticed a number of drivers hitting other race cars the wall etc. To claim that Stewart had such absolute control over his car when another driver ran out on the race course and, I believe, surprise all the drivers make a decision other that trying to miss whatever the car ahead of him swerved to miss is nonsense.

The claim of such control is not consistent with the lack of control I see in their driving . We watch racing because it is on the edge. Now some are willing to claim because someone ran onto the race track and went past that edge that a person is guilty of murder? Bull!

The attorney for a man who tried to kill himself after setting a fire at a Federal Aviation Administration facility in Aurora said Monday that his client made a “tragic mistake” that “inconvenienced many, many people.” But attorney Ron Safer pleaded for the public to have compassion for the “deeply troubled man” whose actions paralyzed national air traffic. “On Friday morning, Brian [Howard] tried to take his life. That he did so in a way that inconvenienced . . . many, many people is unacceptable and he deeply regrets that,” Safer said after Howard made his first appearance in U.S. District Court.

By now, you’re probably familiar with the fact that some people in the US refuse to vaccinate their children. You are probably also familiar with the raging debate over vaccine refusal and whether parents should suck it up and vaccinate their kids for the sake of herd immunity, the common good, and society. But a recent piece in the Hollywood Reporter by Gary Baum really cuts to the heart of the vaccine refusal issue: It’s a class and privilege problem. The people refusing to vaccinate are primarily wealthy, coming from backgrounds of privilege, following in the footsteps of their wealthy and

The federal government is giving an ObamaCare insurance navigator Seedco, which has a reported history of fraud, $1.4 million to operate in Tennessee this fiscal year. Last year, Seedco received $1.2 million for the same services in Tennessee. As reported, the federal government sued Seedco on the grounds it faked at least 1,400 of 6,500 job placements under a $22.2 million federally funded contract with New York City. Seedco, according to National Review, had to settle that lawsuit.

GOLDEN, Colo. - Hundreds of suburban Denver high school students missed school again Monday as teachers shut down two high schools by calling in sick amid a controversy over proposed changes to an Advanced Placement history class and changes to their pay. Classes were canceled at Golden and Jefferson high schools after 81 percent and 70 percent of teachers called in sick respectively. Some students who had the day off hit the street to protest against a proposal from the board´s new conservative majority to review the history course to make sure it promotes patriotism and doesn´t condone social disorder.

HONG KONG -- Hong Kong´s leader said China won´t back down from its decision to limit voting reforms in the Asian financial hub as pro-democracy protesters set a Wednesday deadline for a response from the government to meet their demands. The unequivocal statement from Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying on Tuesday dashed hopes that the standoff between demonstrators and authorities could be resolved quickly through negotiations. It does not come as a surprise given that showing a willingness to talk would have made the Chinese leadership appear weak, which could embolden dissidents, critics and separatists on the mainland.

The cops in Ohio did not know it when they struggled to fingerprint her, but their prisoner would prove to be a mystery woman who would seem to outdo Dillinger.

BERLIN—There are many subjects of German soul-searching. Among them: Is the country saving too much water? People here are known to flush toilets with old bath water and to take turns bathing in the same tub without refilling it. New German toilets typically use about two gallons of water for a full flush and less than one for water-saving. Conserving water is an expression of personal virtue and social responsibility. But as scholars, utility managers, and municipal officials point out, there is a dark side to the impulse. Sewage stagnates in too-large canals and noxious gas is corroding cement.

For President Obama, the color of a man’s skin is far more important than the content of his character.

Remember, when Ferguson exploded in racial rage in August, Mr. Obama chose not to curtail his 15-day vacation, spending day after day on the golf course in the white-skinned, white-wined, millionaire playground

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

President Obama firmly believes the United States is better off now than when he took office, even though the American people cannot “feel” it. During an interview with 60 Minutes’ Steve Kroft, Obama said, “the country is definitely better off than when I came into office.” “When I came into office, our economy was in crisis,” Obama said. The president then cited lower unemployment, private sector job growth, and deficit cuts as evidence of his administration’s success. “I can put my record against any leader around the world in terms of digging ourselves out of a terrible, almost unprecedented financial crisis,” Obama said.

Counter-terror investigators would be barred from undercover operations in mosques or other religious institutions unless there is reason to believe criminal activity is going on there, under a new policy expected within weeks. The new rules would ban profiling based on religion, ethnicity or sexual orientation and includes no exemption for national security investigations, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Democrats think conservatives in general, and Tea Partiers in particular, are stupid. Here’s how to reinforce that belief: Sit out the 2014 congressional elections because your favorite candidate lost his primary bid to an establishment Republican. If you live in Kansas, for example, you can suck your thumb while Democrat ringer Greg Orman beats Republican Senator Pat Roberts. If you’re a Kentucky conservative, you can stay home and b***h about Mitch while Alison “Rubberstamp” Grimes heads to Washington. If you’re in Mississippi, you can stay mad at Thad and allow Travis “no repeal” Childers to win. That’ll show those RINOs! It
