walktoanarcade: That story pissed me off a bit.
Fear the Clam: If he actually gave a shait about you or his kids he wouldn't have been riding a motorcycle in the first place.
Loaf's Tray: Louder pipes on either vehicle could surely have prevented this tragedy.
Fear the Clam: "He gets to have a Christmas," Stepp said of Krebs. "It's not fair. I have to take my kids to the grave to see their father on Christmas."If he actually gave a shait about you or his kids he wouldn't have been riding a motorcycle in the first place.
Jim_Callahan: Smart cars, for instance, are designed like the maker is trying to kill you.
Nutsac_Jim: As long as he had a nice AD&D policy I'd cut him some slack.
ReapTheChaos: Fear the Clam: "He gets to have a Christmas," Stepp said of Krebs. "It's not fair. I have to take my kids to the grave to see their father on Christmas."If he actually gave a shait about you or his kids he wouldn't have been riding a motorcycle in the first place.I have to admit, I kind of agree with this. If the guy had rear ended a car, chances are nobody would have gotten hurt. Accidents happen, I may be responsible for it but how is it also my fault if you choose to drive a vehicle that offers you absolutely not protection in an accident?Also, can't drugs show up in a urine test days, or even weeks after you use them?
DerAppie: I don't get it. Why would the time matter that much? As long as the idiot isn't taking any new drugs there should be any negative (for the accused) effect on intoxication levels. Sure, you don't force the guy to go and have the alcohol test the next saturday at 23:00, but 2 minutes outside of the 3 hours? What is the rationale.behind that?
Mietsko: I'm really not trying to troll here, this just caught my eyeFTA : "It's not fair. I have to take my kids to the grave to see their father on Christmas."You could actually do that on a different day, if you wanted.
uncleacid: He went to licking and stopped ticking.
Riche: Tragic all around, but...Was the driver actually intoxicated at the scene, or was the state interested in charging him with the more serious crime simply because there were detectable amounts of certain substances in his bloodstream?Did the driver have a history of DWI or run-ins with the law or did he have a clean record before this?Those are some damn important factors to this story that are missing-- I don't know if I should be seriously pissed off or going "tsk tsk."The reporter didn't do a very good job on this story at all. Back in my news editor days I would have given him a major ass chewing and kicked him out to finish the goddamn story I was paying him to write./I sometimes miss being a grumpy newspaper editor. It was fun at times.//Reporters under me almost never did a half assed job twice.
