I write in response to the Sept. 21 article, “Police arrest suspect in weekend Sabattus hit-and-run that killed a local woman.”

Five hundred sixty dollars. That’s all it takes for bail after someone kills another human being with his vehicle and drives away as though nothing happened. This is one of the most disgusting things I’ve ever heard in my life.

This is wrong, and Maine state lawmakers need to do their job and change it.
