Re: This morning I'm rather pissed off . . .

I was in a great mood . . . it is sunny out, I got paid, found my tax refund check in my account, and its Friday. Then I read this . . .

####er


I just galls me that two people had to lose their lives in my town because one idiot wasn't responsible enough to have someone else drive for him. At least the cops took him away. I am frustrated to say the least.

Sorry, can't help you with calming down, because that and the prospect of the driver walking or getting a slap on the wrist for his murder pisses me off too

Re: This morning I'm rather pissed off . . .

It really bothers me to see things like that happen. Two young lives lost to some Sh*t head as they were enjoying a beautiful ride on a beautiful night.

Why is it that the drunks are usually always the survivors and the innocent people are the ones who have their lives taken away?

Re: This morning I'm rather pissed off . . .

I can't help you calm down much either but maybe this will help....

You're town, at least, seems to give a ####. They charged him with two felonies, both of which carry pretty good sized jail terms.

Out here he would have, maybe, gotten a DUI (at most) and, more likely, a failure to yeild ticket.

I hope more cities/states start to follow yours in how they handle these people. He killed two people and it looks like, when convicted, he'll do some heavy time.

Re: This morning I'm rather pissed off . . .

Jeez that sucks....I heard the blurb on the news, but didn't catch any details....

This is one of the reasons that I basically do not ride at night much anymore. When I do, its almost never in town...
Too many drunk-assed idiots in this world...

Don't calm down; this is worth being mad about. If more folks got mad about stories like this, then maybe we wouldn't see so many repeat offenders get a 'slap on the wrist' like someone else mentioned.

And assuming the driver has any humanity, he'll have to live with the fact that he killed 2 people.

Re: This morning I'm rather pissed off . . .

Damn.. bad day for riding. That really really sucks. That d##ck should never be allowed to drive again and spend the rest of his youth busting rocks on a chain gang.

We lost one ourselves yesterday.. but the details are sort of scetchy.

So sad. Unfortunately, cagers vs. bikes, bikes tend to lose.
The Bay Area has it's cager vs. biker issues as well as this unfortunate hit and run and a recent

crazy mofo on the loose.
Be careful.

Re: This morning I'm rather pissed off . . .

sometime, well actually most the time, i think us bikers get treated like 2nd class citizens

Do unto others, before some prick does it to you!
