GOOD GRIEF, ARE THERE REALLY PEOPLE THIS FRIGGIN STUPID?
37 year old Austin Dawkins has been charged with reckless conduct after he “accidentally” set his wife, 30 year old Jessica Dawkins, on fire at a gas station in Georgia. Accidentally? Exactly what did this moron think would happen when you expose a flame from a cigarette lighter to gasoline fumes? Jessica Dawkins suffered suffered second and third degree burns to her legs, arms, back and head. Jessica Dawkins was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital for treatment. She has since been released.
Arraignment for Dawkins is scheduled for Monday. Reckless conduct is a misdemeanor with a maximum penalty of a year in prison and a fine of up to $1,000. This fool is lucky he is not being charged with homicide or manslaughter, had his wife died.
A Georgia man will face criminal charges for accidentally setting fire to his wife by flicking his lighter near his pickup truck’s gas tank while refueling.
Austin Dawkins, 37, of Clarkesville will be charged with reckless conduct, according to a statement from the state fire safety commissioner, Ralph Hudgens.
Dawkins’ wife, 30-year-old Jessica Dawkins, suffered second- and third-degree burns to her legs, arms, back and head at a Clarkesville gas station on October 16, Hudgens said.
This is just another example of you cannot legislate ignorance.
