Man Found Guilty In Death Of Usher's Stepson

Jeffrey Hubbard was found guilty yesterday of homicide and other counts related to the death of Usher's former 11 year old stepson Kile Glover who was killed in a  jet skiing accident. Hubbard was found guilty of homicide by vessel, serious injury by vessel and other misdemeanor boating charges, including reckless operation of a vessel, unlawful operation of a personal watercraft and a boat-traffic violation for operating at more than idle speed within 100 feet of a person in the water.

Glover and a 15 year old girl had been floating in inner tubes when hit by Hubbard. Kile spent the next few days in a hospital on life support before being declared dead. Hubbard will be sentenced next month.

So sad for Usher and his family. Effing jet skis. They are still allowed on the beaches here (the two months that a person could actually swim). When I hear one, I get my kids the hell of the water and pray that we're fast enough.

A dude ran over the top of my elderly parents in their boat, about 7 yrs back. Broad daylight, plenty of waterway. He wasn't paying attention, nearly cut the boat in half and them.

Everyone hates jet skiers. Boaters, fishermen, swimmers … everyone. They are all assholes, with few exceptions.
