 the state of colorado and its inhabitants are in deep shit of their own creation as truckers will not enter the state until this error is solved, and i support them;

In April of 2019, Rogel Aguilera-Mederos’ brakes failed on his semi-truck as he drove down a hill on Interstate 70. The brake failure caused him to come slamming into traffic, killing four people and injuring several others. The horrific accident destroyed 28 other vehicles as well.

It was proven in a court of law that Aguilera-Mederos had no control over his brakes and though he certainly bears some responsibility, thanks to ridiculously harsh mandatory minimum sentencing, he will be thrown in a cage for the rest of his life.

In October, Aguilera-Mederos was found guilty and convicted on 27 counts — 4 counts of vehicular homicide, 6 counts of first-degree assault, 10 counts of attempt to commit assault in the first degree- extreme indifference, two counts of vehicular assault- reckless, one count of reckless driving, four counts of careless driving causing death.

This month, a judge in Jefferson County sentenced him to 110 years in prison. Two days later, more than 4.5 million people had signed an online petition asking Gov. Jared Polis to grant clemency, or commutation as time served.

Also, after he was sentenced, truckers across the country took to social media to announce a boycott. They announced that they will no longer be driving into Colorado unless Aguilera-Mederos is granted clemency.

One Tiktoker said, “this truck is no longer going to Colorado. We want justice for Rogel Aguilera. Truckers he needs our help.” and watch more........
