Yeah, I've seen this.  This is effed up for sure.  Don't we have extradition treaties in place to get this person?

Yeah, they should clap that bitch in irons and drag her back to face justice. Running is bad. If you f**k up face the music.

Trump is the monster created by irresponsible right wing rhetoric.  The GOP wanted to ride that wave as long as possible to fire up the base ... not realizing what they'd get when they unleashed the beast. He's the dictator those who find self governance too difficult have been waiting for.

No, it is not a big story here.  Press is too fixated on getting Trump impeached so, unfortunately, all other news is secondary.  Pretty sad as there are other issues far more important and noteworthy then the obsession of trying to impeach this President.
  

"Without morals a republic cannot subsist any length of time; they therefore who are decrying the Christian religion, whose morality is so sublime and pure (and) which insures to the good eternal happiness, are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of free governments."

Yep.  It was on the nightlys and the Internets aggregate sites. 

I hear the right-wing media has been in full-on panic mode defending Trump since the impeachment inquiry so it's unlikely they know much about it.

I've seen it on the news shows. Very briefly. It really does suck. Apparently she was driving on the wrong side of the road and killed a motorcyclist. Not good. I can understand an American getting confused by the left/right thing, and I have experienced that problem when driving in Japan and Ireland. It can be disorienting. But I never had an accident or even a ticket. Japan was worse because the roads are so different there. Not to mention the language difference.

Extradition doesn't apply; she's got diplomatic immunity.

I'm pretty sure the idea of diplomatic immunity is to frustrate nasty tricks against diplomats by unfriendly host countries, not to permit the evasion of legitimate polie enquiries.

Can the family file a lawsuit for civil damages over here I wonder.  It's not much, but that's what it may come down to.

Apparently not. DI is immunity from any form of legal action.

I wonder if the Spanish Ambassador to, say, Guatemala can just shoot people in the street?

What's the limit?


Another question. If an Irish or Belgian diplomat had run down an American citizen in Washington, what would the expectation be from your public on appropriate action?

Well, all we can be is pissed off.  There have been several cases recently of Saudi nationals involved in fatal automobile accidents.  Those individuals just...  disappeared from the country before being brought to justice.
