01) Supporters pack courtroom for convicted killer seeking new trial in Cobb County

“They wore red T-shirts that read “Garrett Strong” and stickers that read “Free Garrett Anderson.” And they filled a Cobb County courtroom Tuesday afternoon to show their support for a man convicted of killing two teenagers in a 2014 crash.

The case has been unusual from the start. By all accounts, Anderson didn’t strike the teens. Instead, they were hit by a locksmith Anderson had hired to access his car.”

This is really complicated…

…I don’t have a lot of sympathy, for a guy who’s going to call/hire a locksmith to assist him [after getting locked out of his car]…just to turn around and try to stiff this professional out of a $175 fee…

…not even if I do think $175 is highway robbery, for unlocking a car…

Anderson didn’t strike and kill those girls [15 year old’s, the article refers to as “little girls”, oddly]…but he did start a sequence of events into motion…

He holds some culpability, in these deaths.

What’s crazy…is that the guy who actually struck and killed the two girls, was sentenced to far less time in prison.

As much as the situation sucked…he should not have engaged in a high speed chase…

He should have taken down the license plate number and vehicle description [preferably, as soon as he arrived on the scene to provide a service], and then called the cops when this guy fled without paying.

The locksmith was also culpable…He should have been smart enough, to know that the potential risks were not worth $175.
