An Oregon man is being charged in the death of a child after having a blood sugar episode while driving. When should diabetes-related episodes while driving become a criminal offense?
No one should be held criminally or financially responsible if they have an accident due to a diabetes incident.
 
No one should be held criminally responsible, but if the incident was preventable, financial restitution should be considered.
 
I think if a person is aware of their risk for potentially dangerous episodes and do nothing to prevent it, they should be held accountable.
 
I am not convinced anyone with a history of mismanaged lows should be driving at all.
 
I don't know how I feel about the criminal charges, but I think some type of program should be mandated when this happens more than once.
 
I don't know where I stand on this.

I have spent the past three days dealing with an evil stomach bug. Gastro issues, bloodsugar issues and a headache for the ages - along with a low grade fever - left me in bed trying (and mostly failing) to rest. I'm back at work today after two sick days, but still on slo-mo. Weird bloodsugars are always my "getting sick" miner's canary. Everyone knows what a miner's canary is, right? Back in the day, miners would keep a caged bird (often a canary) with them in the mine....
