A North Dakota man charged with vehicular homicide and leaving the scene of an accident that killed a Republican teen says he doesn't want his life or job jeopardized.
Shannon Brandt, 41, reported himself to police after chasing and mowing down 18-year-old Cayler Ellingson and was released on $50,000 bail. Brandt told police that he has "a job, a life, a house, and things that I don't exactly want to see go by the wayside....family that are very important to me."
Steven Crowder had several problems with Brandt's release. "That shouldn't happen," Crowder said. "When you dehumanize people, it is okay to treat them inhumanely."
Brandt did not understand why he had to post bail for his crime. This infuriates Crowder because he believes this is a manifestation of an entitled mentality.
Crowder said he wants to see Brandt jobless, homeless, and penniless and stressed his belief that Brandt is an "entitled little pr*ck,"
About Brandt's Charges
In North Dakota, criminal vehicular homicide is defined as "causing the death of another person while driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol in violation of North Dakota's DUI laws. A person with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08% or more or impaired by drugs or alcohol to the degree that renders the person incapable of safely driving is considered "under the influence."
Brandt's Call to Police
According to reports, “Brandt stated that the pedestrian called some people and Brandt was afraid they were coming to get him,” the document continues. “Brandt admitted to State Radio that he hit the pedestrian and that the pedestrian was part of a Republican extremist group.”
