The Orphan I Am Chronicles – 86

Sxsw is in its ‘full steam ahead’ mode and unfortunately and sadly, a tragic accident happened late last night. A drunken male, who stole a car, decided to flee the APD- Austin Police Department and of course, a high-speed pursuit entailed, in which the drunk ran or should I say, plowed into a large crowd of people, killing two and injuring many, some 34 or more.

I’m trying hard to think of a year when something this tragic has happened at SXSW and I’m drawing a blank, it has always been one of the safest music/film festivals in the world. Unfortunately that changed late last night, people out, enjoying each other, the music-filled atmosphere, endless venues, on a beautiful clear cool night. The area where it happened, Red River, is an area where on any given night, not just at SXSW, an area where people just chill.

I’m not going to post news ads here, you can find countless reports all over the net, but I do want to say a couple of things, the loser who decided he would recklessly get behind the wheel in a drunken state, may he rot in jail and second, can anyone tell me what APD’s policy is on pursuing a suspect, albeit drunk in a stolen car through an area which the streets are used as ‘sidewalks’ during SXSW? I’m not blaming APD, but surely they have a non-pursuit policy?

My prayers go out to the victims and the families of all those effected by the irresponsible actions of one…….peace tone
