Initiative won’t bring back dead kids

ahhh..... The Troy and Alana Pack Patient Safety Act of 2014.  A memorial to the needless death of two innocent children who died at the hands of a crazed, drunken doctor...

No...wait.  That's not what happened.  So why the HELL does the ballot initiative deal with DOCTORS???
Now, for voters who didn’t know any better, they might assume that the hit-and-run driver who killed tender-aged Troy and Alana was a substance-abusing doctor. But nothing could be further from the truth.

In fact, the culprit was a 46-year-old nanny, Jimena Barreto, who was behind the wheel of her gold 1979 Mercedes when she careened across two lanes of a Danville street onto a sidewalk where she struck defenseless Troy and Alana.

Had the proposed ballot measure that bears their names been in place 11 years ago, it would have made no difference. It would not have prevented Barreto — convicted of second-degree murder and currently serving consecutive sentences of 15 years to life — from killing the Pack children.
What amazes me is that this ballot initiative was approved.  It should have been kicked back and the submitters told to stop trying to defraud people.

But, hey. It's CA.
