On April 14th, 2010 one of my main homies was killed in Flatbush, Brooklyn by Michael Oxley. Jake McD aka Drip was biking down Flatbush Ave. when an unmarked, unregistered van sped through a red light, struck, & killed him, dragging him for the rest of the block. Michael Oxley had a suspended license, and was a repeat offender for this same type of offense. He was hit with 5 counts: vehicular homicide, reckless driving, running a red light, speeding & driving with a suspended license. The jury came back today & found him guilty of 2 charges: speeding & driving with a suspended license. He will spend 10 more days in jail (he already spent 12 when he was first charged) & pay a fine.
Is this all that a life is worth?
I love you bro, you may be gone but never forgotten. Justice will find a way.
