    Can you describe exactly what value is added by putting the phrase “accidentally hit” in quotes?

    Are you in possession of some “evidence” that this unfortunate tragedy was not an accident but that the driver deliberately targeted a one year old girl for vehicular homicide?

    If so, I hope you are sharing your “evidence” with the OPD.

    If not, could you perhaps refrain from the use of such prejudicial, rhetorical devices?

    I was reading the item about Redding and how it has a higher than average motor vehicle collision rate and how it was near the bottom of a “happiness survey” published last year. Redding is not a city I visit very often, and now I’ll be extra careful should my travels take me there again. The two articles made Redding sound like “bad attitude central” and and the home of “my life sucks, nobody cares what I think, but at least my car (truck, SUV, motorcycle) obeys my every command and gives me a feeling of power so lacking in the rest of my wretched existence.”
