Justice for Jade Rice and Daniel Attkinson

On 29th January 2006 my daughter Jade Rice and Daniel Atkinson were travelling as passengers in a car driven by their so called care worker (this happened at 12.30am yet a reason has never been given as to why they were in the car at that time) My husband, myself and Linda (Daniels mum) are going down to London to meet up with the head of the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) to find out why despite the fact that the coroner ruled they were unlawfully killed (the driver was doing 80mph in a 40mph built up area) and the authorities have failed to prosecute the driver. The DPP claim that this is not in the publics interest to try him (given the facts that he killed two teenager in his care) how can this be the case when he has never had to faced a trial, never been fined or even a point on his licence given the fact the coroner verdict was unlawfully killed (he must be guilty of something yet he has escaped everything). We believe that given the seriousness of the crime, then surely the law demand a fair trail with a jury. At the moment the law states that if a judgement has been passed then this can not be over ruled without new evidence. During the past 4 years, we have had 3 judgements made. 1st when we went to crown court, she dismissed the case due to insufficient evidence, the 2nd was an appeal, this time the CPS had the scientific evidence which proved the speed of the car went control was lost, despite this the judge didn’t grant the appeal. 3rd was the coroners inquest. We would like to get a petition together for the DPP showing that it is in the public’s interest so justice can be seen and the public can keep faith in the judiciary. We would like to know if you the members of the public think this is expectable or not and would appreciate your views, be it negative or positive. Thank you
