  • Mother of suspect blames police for those who died during pursuit.


    From: http://www.cbsatlanta.com/news/20859785/detail.html


    JONESBORO, Ga. -- The mother of a Fayetteville man accused of causing a crash that killed two innocent women apologized Friday for her son’s actions. But she also blamed police, saying if they hadn’t chased her son, those women might still be alive.

    Kathryn Snowden collapsed outside the Clayton County Courthouse after seeing her son, Christian Harris, face a judge on a long list of charges. Police said Harris led them on a chase that ended when the stolen truck he was driving slammed head-on into a car, killing Zannie Hatcher, 74, and her daughter, Bonnie Vicks, 57.

    "He's only 24,” Snowden said. “His name is Christian. I named him that when I was 17 years old." She said, “I don't know what to say, but I'm sorry. I'm so sorry that this had to happen."

    But Snowden said her son is not the only one to blame. "They didn't have to have the police to keep chasing him, because look what happened now. Two innocent people coming from church is gone,” she said.


    Harris’s girlfriend said at the scene Wednesday night, Harris was most concerned about their two-week old son. Valarie Pettigrew told CBS Atlanta News, “He hollered out, 'I love you, and I love Merrick. Where's Merrick, which is our son's name.'"

    She said he's sorry for what he did.

    Harris's mother was not allowed to speak to her son in court Friday, but she said if she could talk to him, she would say, "Get on your knees. No man down here can judge us. Only the father that sits on the right hand side of the throne can judge us all."

    A Clayton County police panel is looking into whether officers followed the proper police procedures during the chase.

      Yeah, we're all going to die of old age waiting for some mom to say, "My son's an 'effen idiot, his actions caused the death of two innocent people, I'm sorry I didn't abort his sorry @55 xx years ago and save the world from his stupidity."

          Wait...what? No one can judge her son, but she can judge the actions of the police?

          I think I died a little inside reading that stupidity.

            wow what the hell, maybe if he stopped in the first place those people would still be alive!!

            “His name is Christian. I named him that when I was 17 years old."
            ...and what did she call her son the first 16 years of his life??

              GOD: Whoa, whoa don't bring me into this..

              And in the meantime, Futurelaw89 will say a few things about him.. He's a worthless idiot and so is the mother.

              Everyone is apologizing (mother&girlfriend) on his behalf but this POS probably has zero remorse.

                there is not point in the dead people's family trying to sue the killer as those pockets will be empty, who do they have to go against but the city and their insurance policy for acting wreckless? I suppose they get whatever personal life insurance or maybe a death policy from their own vehicle insurance.

                  They don't come out stupid, they are raised to be that way.

                    Not always. There are some kids, despite their squared-away parent's best efforts, who just have to revolt and dare to be stupid.

                    (Side note: Dang, I was hoping for something better to comment on, for #5000!)

                      She has been undoubtedly making excuses for and/or ignoring his pathetic judgements his whole life. Not surprising...

                        When your son dies he will be Judged by God.

                        By the way, her statement is what her attorney told her to say so don't hold it against her to much. She thinks because of her jackass son she just won the lottery.

                              Really now.

                              Well!

                              If we didn't have a law against stealing vehicles, then he wouldn't have had to run from the police and the police would have had no reason to chase him. So I guess we are all going to roast in hell.
