Letter: Let’s hope justice prevails in man’s hit-and-run death

Let’s hope justice prevails in man’s hit-and-run death

“This is going to be an inconvenience; I have things to do today.” What a callous and insensitive remark for Gabriele Ballowe to render when she was arrested and charged with four felonies, including vehicular manslaughter and leaving the scene of an incident, on that fateful night in the winter of 2013. I am quite confident that Barry Moss had similar important things to do for the rest of his life, which was cruelly taken from him that evening.

It is inconceivable that Ballowe, who admitted that she knew she had “hit something,” could be so heartless and indifferent. I can only hope that her conscience has bothered her these past months. Perhaps not, however, she appears to me to be a cruel and ruthless individual.

I congratulate both Evans Police Chief Ernest Masulo and District Attorney Michael Flaherty Jr. for pursuing this case against multiple odds, especially former DA Frank Sedita’s reluctance to indict.

Finally, I hope, justice will prevail.
