  • Please ask the DA about the death of Thomas Raith, who was killed when his car was hit broadside by Keith Gallo at high speeds who was allegedly talking on a cell phone. Why were the license plates on Mr. Gallo’s SUV covered with paper (and not the victim’s)? Why did it take an inquiry by Dana Point Mayor Debra Lewis to finally identify the driver as Mr. Gallo, after one full year of refusing requests from the press and private citizens? Why was Mr. Gallo not detained by OCSD deputies even though witnesses called 911 – before the collision – reporting that he was running red lights while talking on his phone? Why did the DA decline to charge Mr. Gallo, stating that he had suffered a “medical emergency”, yet he was able to navigate his large SUV and maintain his lane, he remained on scene in an ambulance for a prolonged time, was transported without lights and sirens to the emergency department where he was discharged home?

    Something does not add up, here. This case could use some sunlight.
