Don't understand the above comment's logic, much less the bad grammar. I'm not understanding why a relative by marriage's record has anything to do with someone's job. Is the brother-in-law working at a school there?
Like the column, though. Seems to be a clear-headed look at what's become a local soap opera.
... should a guy who ended up with a severed arm in his Jeep through no fault of his own ...
I submit had "Sam" been in the right frame of mind (thus, not drunk like the others and/or so-called "normal") he would not have "freaked out" and driven away, thrown the severed arm away and lied to police.
I submit that "Sam" was similarly intoxicated as the two others ... because usually those are the ones who cowardly flee an accident lest they be charged with intoxication as well ... just sayin'.
There are so many holes in this one particular account of this well-documented story that an obscenely drunk person driving in a Jeep could have driven through them and not hit an edge. Why was this even published? Are there any editors at the Weakly who read these things before they are published???
Did the writer bother to read any of the official records in this case? Cos this story doesn't seem to match. Oh, I guess everybody was lying.
What about "Sam" calling 911, not to report the crash, but to lie and say his Jeep was stolen? Did she ask about that? Did she ask about why he sped up and slowed down and sped up when the victim was chasing the Jeep? Did she ask why all official records say it was the victim and "Sam" who were arguing and what they were arguing about?
Taking the word of the person who feels so very wronged in this case is ... wrong. As is blaming everyone else for one's wrongful actions. I have no stake in this case, but it clearly sounds as if the writer has a personal stake in rewriting the criminal history of a stupid person who wants to blame everyone but himself. Karma's a bitch, ain't it?
Considered taking some swim classes when I heard the new guide was out. The cost didn't deter me, but all of the classes were scheduled either in mid-morning or beginning at 5:30 p.m. Working an 8:30-5:30 M-F job meant those were all out, except for one lone Saturday class I was interested in. Figure Saturdays the rec centers will be full of kids and don't want that scene.
Wow. What powerful insights.
All I know is when I called his office to complain that TPD told me they didn't care if my neighbors started a loud party at 2 a.m. ... his office didn't care. When I called his office to complain that Cox dumped 100 lbs of asphalt in my garbage can ... his office didn't care. So why should I care? I hope someone does oppose him!
No Garry Shandling? Greg Kinnear? Oh please tell me the other half includes, at least, Lalo Guerrero! And Edward Abbey, Michael Blake, Jerry Bruckheimer, Ray Bradbury, Frank Borman, Ted DeGrazia, John Denver, Barbara Eden, Andrew Greeley, Craig T. Nelson, Michael Biehn, Rainer Ptacek, for Christ's sake! I mean, any one of them is more of a celebrity than Chuck George or Bud Foster!!!!!
