Detra Farries sits in jail in Denver, Colorado at this moment, and rightfully so. Farries is accused of hopping into her SUV and driving off as a tow truck driver tried to remove it from an apartment complex where it had been illegally parked for an extended period without license plates. In the process, the tow truck driver was dragged for over a mile and killed. Several people tried to stop Farries, but she just kept going as the man screamed. When the tow truck driver--a married father of two and an Iraqi war vet--finally came disengaged from the SUV, Farries quickly made a U-turn across the median and sped away. However the police found her shortly thereafter.
And here's Farries' MySpace page. Aside from the fact that all of her "friends" seem to be relishing the thug/gangster lifestyle, it's also noteworthy that she's a big Obama fan and supporter.
I guess that like Peggy, she thought that Obama was going to pay her car note, but apparently he didn't because it was also apparently subject to a repossession notice, which is probably why the license plates had been removed--so the repo people couldn't find it as easily.
Oh, and adding to the "just plain wrong" of this case, her husband is Terroll Farries Jr.. He's currently in prison for hitting and killing a 51-year-old Denver woman then driving away and hiding his vehicle back in December, 2009. And after his sentencing, she actually wrote in to the newspaper to defend her husband and blamed the victim for walking in front of him! I guess that depravity and a lack of conscience is something that the two of them have in common and I hope that she gets more than the four years that her husband got.
