A jury this evening acquitted Dr. James G. Corasanti on all felony charges related to the death of an 18-year-old longboard skater last July in Amherst.
The shock and rage in Buffalo is palpable. Below is a slice of the reaction.
The #Corasanti verdict is unreal. If some average Joe were driving and killed someone it would be an open and shut case.

Looks like Corasanti is going to get away with homicide with a slap on the wrist. Money buys you freedom.

Did not realize justice is deaf and dumb, as well as blind #corasanti

It’s safe to say that people can actually get away with murder. And that’s coming from one of his patients. #corasanti #notguilty #bullshit

Must be nice having mad money, you can literally kill someone drunk driving and get a dwi. We have a really great law system. #corasanti

There’s two sets of rules in this game. One for the kings and bishops. One for the pawns. The game is fixed. #Corasanti
