“The Delaware Department of Justice announced Thursday morning it will not pursue criminal charges against NASCAR driver Kurt Busch.
“After a thorough consideration of all of the available information about the case, it is determined that the admissible evidence and available witnesses would likely be insufficient to meet the burden of establishing beyond a reasonable doubt that Mr. Busch committed a crime during the Sept. 26 incident,” the department said in a statement.
The statement goes on to say that meeting a “high burden of proof is the standard for prosecutors in bringing a case.””
This headline has started more than 75 new stories as of now, and it rings loud and clear that NASCAR not only jumped the gun, but raked a man over the coals for no reason.
Now everyone is waiting to see how Brain France can spin this story and still come out looking like he has a clue, BUT it isn’t going to happen, NASCAR has lost respect and creditability in this matter in the way it has caved in to pressure Congresswomen, and feminist groups, by suspending Kurt Busch.
If you look back to my show, 2 weeks ago I mentioned the Duke Lacrosse players who were vilified by baseless claims and later exonerated. Wound up lots of people paid for that but the damage was done, no amount of money can remove the damage done to a persons reputation after being done this way, #NASCAR you should be ashamed and Chevrolet you should be as well you were so quick to cut and run pulling your support from a man who had done no wrong.
I think that this coming weekend at Las Vegas Brian France should stand up at the start finish line before the National Anthem and publicly apologize to Kurt Busch and his fans for treating him the way they have, and while he is there drop to one knee and beg Kurt to not sue him for slander and defamation of character!
But we know that won’t happen, NASCAR will try to find a way to justify what they have done and try to make it all go away. Well now we just have to wait and see what kind of stupid PR spin NASCAR can put on this, ……. it should be interesting.
