Lawsuit Filed Against Driver Who Allegedly Got Pass From Woodbridge Police

A wrongful death suit has been filed against a driver who allegedly was given a pass by the Woodbridge Police Department, according to the plaintiff's attorney.

The lawsuit was filed by the estate of Michael Rosinski, who was a pedestrian when he was allegedly struck and killed by a car driven by Jason Bays on May 14, 2011.

Based on the cell phone records obtained via subpoena,Bays was a distracted driver at the time of the accident.  He was on his cell phone at 11:10 p.m. and the call to Woodbridge police came in at 11:11 p.m., according to documents provided by B. David Jarashow.

Bays testified at his deposition that he knew one of the police officers that worked in Woodbridge at the time.  The police report is written up in way that puts all of the blame from the accident on the deceased, Rosinski.  The police never asked if Mr. Bays was on his cell phone or texting at the time of the incident, according to Jarashow.
"
This is particularly troubling in light of the fact that Woodbridge PD received a $300,000 grant to crack down on distracted drivers in April of this year," Jarashow said.

The entire situation is typical of the network of cheap, low-level corruption in which the network of cops takes part. There's either a law or there's not. Let's take this and make it a case to illustrate the point of all this - cops are as crooked as they can be. There are no absolutes in enforcement. The entire system is corrupt, including their expected heming and hawing about what really went on. Take this Bays guy and throw him in jail, for a long time - if only as a cheeseball example of someone else's death. Then go after the low-lever cop or cops. All of this has to stop. gary introne garyjinn123@aol.com

The Woodbridge Police are excellent cops.

That's patently ridiculous, and easy to say; a wide, broad statement with no specific reference to anything except defending the concept of law enforcement, police powers, corruption, occupation and state-covered-illegality. GI
