CNN Rick Sanchez Killed Jeffrey Smuzinick

Posted in Uncategorized by roving on April 15, 2009

I vaguely remembered something about CNN’s Sanchez having a DUI and when reading about it on Larry Sinclair’s blog decided to look it up.

Jeffrey Smuzinick supposedly ran out into traffic when Rick Sanchez, drunk, behind the wheel, struck and injured 32 yr old Jeffrey. A carpenter by trade. Jeffrey had severe head injuries and was paralyzed. He was in a coma for months. He underwent rehabilitation but ended up dying in a nursing home at the age of 36.

After hitting the man, Sanchez LEAVES the scene and runs home. He then returns later. Larry says he went home to get his drivers license and down a quick beer so he could tell the cops he needed to calm his nerves. (which makes it a hit and run)

When the New York Observer interviewed Rick, the subject of the killing came up. Rick, who has no problem attacking others on air, becomes defensive when the shoe is on the other foot. His excuse for driving drunk , injuring, paralyzing a man who ends up in a nursing home then dies?

“I was wrong, because I had a couple of cocktails, because I was over the legal limit,” he went on. “It could have happened to anybody. … There were probably a lot of other people leaving the stadium that had had a couple of beers as well.” The police tested him over one hour after the hit and run and he was still  above the legal limit. I think he had more then just a couple.

Strange how a liberal never takes full blame for anything. Its all about them. Witnesses at the scene say Rick ignored the victim and it all became about Sanchez. as he loudly told police and bystanders that blood tests were pointless, and would hurt his public image.

Rick the ever compassionate person he pretends to be  never visited his victim. Never called him to say he was sorry because well, its all about him.

No jail time. No charges.

    The guy that was hit was high on cocaine and booze. he got out of a van while it was still moving and darted into the middle of the road. Rick was never charged with hitting anyone, because it was not his fault. He did plead no contest to DUI. Just the facts dude.

    You can bet if it was you or me driving drunk and leaving the scene of the accident, we’d be charged with SOMETHING. It may not have been his fault. Doesn’t mean he wasn’t breaking the law and doesn’t mean he shouldn’t have a consequence.

    But, it does mean he’s a hypocrite.

    Jeff’s mother has been devistated since this happened. His life was ruined and so was his family’s. Rick never took responsibility, never contacted the family, never an apology. He is sickening. Typical liberal ,’me first’. If I had done it, I would still be in jail. Even if Jeff was also drinking, the pedestrian has to be looked out for, you don’t have the right to just mow them down. Rick makes me sick, get him off the air.

    Thats really sad for the Smuzinick and his family. I feel bad for Rick too. But why does he constantly espouse anti American views and anti white views on cnn? His narrow minded liberal mania borders on communism. constantly pointing out his fathers immigration to America as if that gives him some advantage over european Americans. I think there is a real threat from Latin Raza like member such as Sanchez.

    Yeah! You are right some people think they are above the law like the Bush administration…see video

  6. […] I wonder when Rick Sanchez will apologize for killing someone with his car while driving drunk? […]

    Sanchez the phony should of went to jail !!!

  8. […] a desperate attempt to spin a story like his Fox News idols, Rick “dirty” Sanchez (a man known for hitting Jeffrey Smuzinick with his car during a drunk driving accident and fleeing t…) decided to ignore some very important facts regarding my detainment during his broadcast […]

    Rick “filthy” Sanchez is a typical “spinmaster” liberal. Keep on spinning Rick, no matter how wrong you are!

    Well, there are whales at SeaWorld who have killed more people than Rick. He did nothing that the “Lion of The Senate” wouldn’t do. Give him a break, he’s just a poor down trodden Cuban exile victim. Besides, Jeffrey was high too…and probably a conservative to boot.

    Sanchez is the very scum that makes Miami the underbelly of south Florida. This guy continues to live a prosperous life while the guy he hit and killed lies six feet under. He was drunk, and left the scene of the crime. Now he walks as a free man. Not only that but he has the audacity to be a judgmental prick every chance he gets on national television.
    I feel for the Family.

    What the hell do “liberal” views have to do with this story? Only an idiot would read something like that into this tragedy.

  16. SoFlaTransplant said, on August 16, 2010 at 5:28 pm

    I agree with anon… this has nothing to do with liberal vs. conservative.

    This only has to do with the fact that Rick Sanchez is a complete douche bag. He’s been a douche bag since he was on the air on WSVN in South Florida way back in the day. And now he’s a douche bag on national television on CNN for everyone to see. He’s a big, worthless, douche bag in a suit.

    well, I certainly do not think anyone should speak thus of our president.
    But, I can say that the president does not seem to understand why he
    was voted into that office.

    He has not held up to the oath he took and the people (even those of us
    that voted for him) are perturbed that he does not know his history. It
    is very important that any young school boy KNOW AND UNDERSTAND
    WHAT HE COUNTRY’S PAST WAS ALL ABOUT! I must say that he does
    seem to understand the history of some other countries.

    It is time for us to ask our president if he actually has a good reason for
    placing his own history on a shelf that no one is allowed to peek upon.

    The name says it all.


    Regardless of Dirty Sanchez’s political views, he’s a total prick and should be in jail for vehicular homicide, at the very LEAST.

    My prayers are with the Smuzinick family, and RIP Jeff

    Well well well…another bigoted liberal out at CNN. How’s that job going for ya, Rick? Stupid liberal. Liberals are bigots and racists. Oh, and I guess they drive drunk sometimes too, eh?

  21. Gilligan said, on October 1, 2010 at 9:39 pm

    Rick the dick is no more.

    By the way, what’s liberal got to do with DUI ?

    Let’s see your scientific test results of convicted DUI liberals and DUI conservatives, you partisan jackasses.

    > Strange how a liberal never takes full blame for anything

    Strange how people sometimes have ridiculous, unrealistic, and skewed views about people whose opinions are different than theirs.

  23. joe said, on October 2, 2010 at 2:49 am

    Classic liberal. He kills a guy drunk driving and then tries to go home and drink more.

  24. weez said, on October 2, 2010 at 2:09 pm

    The drunk woman who ran me over in 1990 and left the scene was a typical liberal, too.

    Oh wait, no, she was an employee of the Indiana Republican Party. Huh. Guess that means she was a typical Republican, right?

  25. newmster said, on October 4, 2010 at 9:58 am

    Strange your “liberal” is going to work for Fox News now… Doesn’t sound like much of a liberal to me morons.

  26. Ben said, on October 4, 2010 at 7:14 pm

    Yet another stupid un-fact-checked blog that screams conservatives versus liberals. You extremists (both conservative and liberal) should go live on Alcatraz and stay the hell away from society. Nobody cares about your incessant, mindless, dumbfucking bickering.

  27. Dan said, on October 8, 2010 at 6:51 pm

    He’s not a liberal. He’s an idiot. His politics are clearly meaningless as are the politics of anyone with similar mental capacity, e.g. most of you.
