La Cartita --- Many people can relate to the idea of having pride in their relatives coveted or notorious professions. So much so, that some indivuals may take up the habits of said relatives. Crucial tips that define sucess during key moments within those professions are often distilled and passed on to their families. Perhaps, Jeanette Maria sensed a potential life-defining emergency that may be prejudicial to her well being and status, and so, chose to drive away from the crime scene, definitively and quickly, just like her brother, the NYPD Sergeant, told her to should such a moment arrive.Tweet
VIDEO: Brooklyn community still outraged over reckless hit and run.
Residents of Wyckoff still talk about the incident. At the time of this writing (July 8, 2018), bicyclists, mothers, fathers and other individuals in the surrounding area, recall bits and pieces about the tragic murder of Luz Gonzalez.
A block away, a cluster of restaurants, bodegas and apartments all store video of area surrounding the tragic day Luz passed away. Particularly, the video footage that may or may not show where exactly contact occurred between Police & Jeanette Maria. Why would they say so dismissively
The Official Version Of Events; NY1 & CBS Give NYPD Their Platform, Villify The Lot Owner, But Not The Driver!
New York 1, a news provider hosted by the Spectrum cable company, essentially retiterated the New York Police Department's version of events. We link out to their page here. Most outlets opted to show that, in fact, the lot owner's lax building code adherence was to blame. However,

Jeanette Maria's hit-and-run proved sucessful due the cooperation from the NYPD. The most pressing question is 'why would the driver, Jeanette Maria, drive in excess sufficient to prompt an NYPD officer to stop her?'.
How did she not see the child if she was driving forward, not backing out of the lot. Did she not feel and hear the screams as she drove away. If 'no', then why did she speed off the laundromat's parking lot at a sufficiently high rate of speed for an NYPD police unit to pull her over?

The old 'lie, cry and deny' that some East Coast detectives often regard as the female perpretators successful MO for evading justice.
Another NY Daily News story sure looks like damage control, referencing her supposedly tortured tears. That press offensive arose only after coverage began referencing threats of calling ICE on Luz Gonzalez' mom.
In no particular order, we feel as if answering these questions, clearly and unequivocally, could give us some idea about criminal liability for Jeanette Maria:
Finally, 'Why would an NYPD squad car - tasked with making verfiable stops for ticketing purposes - stop her in the first place?' Were they aware of the commotion in the laundromat? After all, as a store owner noted: it is a laundromat, and word spread quickly up and around the avenue.
