Is this justice?

The Dallas County Sheriff's Office has charged the driver of the bus that caught fire in Dallas last month, killing 23 elderly evacuees from Hurricane Rita. Juan Robles Gutierrez faces 23 charges of criminally negligent homicide.

This poor guy came over from Mexico to work, and after the crash, he stuck around instead of heading back across the Rio Grande, and the feds arrested him on immigration charges. He may not be blameless, but it looks like he's being made the scapegoat for this disaster.

Meanwhile, what about holding the owner of the bus, Pharr-based Global Limo Inc., accountable? Sure, the government shut the bus company down, but the firm still should answer for those deaths.
