Did you know that it only cost $1 to purchase a mugshot?
The whole world operates as one mass living organism. We are all at the mercy of one another. You can live your whole life being courteous, obeying the law, and using common decency. Regardless, your life can still be snatched from the face of the earth instantly because some idiot got in a car after having to much to drink or because he was running late and driving recklessly.
It has now been over a year since the drunk Mark Nigon tried to kill my wife and I. We are trying to get our lives back to normal. We decided to take a weekend vacation to go see the Grand Canyon. It was amazing. On our way back, driving on a small two lane back country road, as the sun was going down, a car in the distance was tailgating the car in front of him. Apparently he felt that the speed limit was not fast enough. He pulled out over a double yellow line and attempted to pass the car in front of him. He was now in our lane and coming straight for us. I immediately started flicking my lights, slammed on the brakes and pulled off of the road. It was instantaneous. It was like the type of driving you would see in a spy movie. It was a reaction to a situation that I have had replayed in my mind a million times.
The asshole going the other way never did get back in his lane. He proceeded to pass! God damn I would have liked to get my hands on him. I looked over at my wife in the passenger seat and could clearly see on her face that she had just relived our whole horrible accident all over again. I hugged her and assured her that we were O.K. She was visibly shaken for the rest of the evening.
I know that there are countless drunk drivers and reckless drivers out there. To me Mark Nigon is the face for all of them. Now he can be the face of all of them for you to. I give to you “the face of evil.”
