Like it or not, there is about a 99 percent chance that the hit-and-run driver was an illegal. Why? Because anyone else wouldn't think they have a chance of getting away with it. Illegals have no records, no car registration to track down, no driver's license, most likely not a single shred of identity that can be tracked by the police. This guy is probably working at a mcdonalds in another state by now and will never see justice. Welcome to Arizona. My condolences to the family.


You are full of shit Max! You fucking morons blame everything on illegals. How handy for jerks like you who will never take responsibility for your own actions.
