    and unlike Amy Sensor i’d lay 10 to 1 odds that this person is emmediately arrested and now sitting in jail…..thats just how it works here in Mpls.

    Turning yourself in does not do one thing for you as some might think.
    The judge or police are no more lenient on you than if they found you themselves.

    He or she should have stopped when they hit that pedestrian, now the stupid S.O.B has got a hit and run charge.

    I have to laugh, he turned himself in for what?

    1. duh says:

      since they left the scene of the accident…maybe turned him/herself in because it’s the right thing to do!

    And you can absolutely bet this person will NOT be treated with kid-gloves like Amy Sensor has been. The authorities will land this person in jail right-now, and his sentence will come swift and off to prison he will go. Unlike Amy Sensor whose wealth and fame got her off scot-free, to live at home and go about her life as if nothing happened…..all the while she hit&ran, left a man to DIE on the street like a dog. where is justice for this young laotion man??? why should money&who the person is determine if the authorities will hold the criminal accountable?

    I think Amy was drunk, it took her enough time to turn herself in so she could sober up. There is no way she would not have known she hit someone unless she was impaired. This person turned him/herself iwithin 3 hours after the accident, so I’m assuming he/she was sober……..BUT Amy is at home living her fabulous lifestyle and this person will not. Again, money rules.

    Comment to CBS News: Please post a map of the intersection where the crash occurred. The intersection featured in your video is EAST River Parkway and the crash is reported to have happened at WEST River Parkway. Is it one of these two coordinates?
