Re: NEXT STORY: BILLY LANE GOES TO REHAB, FINDS JESUS

Of course, the next story is that Billy gets probation after agreeing to go into rehab, finds Jesus, tells everyone the Lord saved him, starts building custom bikes for well-heeled CMA members.

.192 is quite a bit...shows tolerance. Granted it isn't like blowing .300 or higher like some drunks who won't even weave at high numbers. But in my opine if a suspect kills another human while driving drunk then said suspect ought not ever see the light of day after conviction. But I am willing to bet that Billy Lane won't do time if he is convicted. Which sends the wrong message.

Yah we can stop painting people with that brush when rallies/events stop being sponsored by alcohol companies and everyone attending stops drowning in alcohol.



For a hobby where everyone hears "this doesn't mix with booze" we sure have a problem.

Time bomb waiting to go off......

I used to be a media reader for a non-profit in my spare time. One of the things I discovered while reading police blotters is that 99% of alcohol related fatalities are perpetrated by people who are around .02 or higher. Forget the [email protected] .08 bullshyt. This guy certainly qualifies as a serious public danger. Usually these guys are also driving with a revoked license. So Billy Boy must have been pretty lucky up until now. I'll bet he's been driving while hammered for years. I read about case after case where the perp had been convicted of DUI 5 or 6 times before killing someone.

People who drink and drive like that are eventually going to kill someone. I say, release the non-violent drug offenders and use the jail space for @$$holes like this. But we won't see any such thing. Apparently our jail space is better utilized by filling it with people who pose little risk.

Heck, after this he has a good chance of becoming a Senator. He'd be a shoo-in if he'd gone off a bridge into a river. He might even be President!

Very unfortunate, all around. Foolish, foolish, foolish of Lane to drive under the influence.



I'm hesitant to condemn someone more harshly, as I've done the same in my more formative years. And, I don't know the full story (but it doesn't look like much to tell here). But, I never killed someone - or even had an "incident" while under the influence (however I *DID* get fitShaced-stoopid after my last incident, some 17-18 years ago)

All he needed to do was go off the bridge, swim to shore, go home for the night, call the lawyers over to revise the story, and claim he didn't remember a thing because of the bump on his head. Worked for one guy, didn't it?

He also needs to have the victim's parents take the victim's body into another jurisdiction and then hire a legal team to avoid having an autopsy.

How anyone can stomach having that pig around is beyond me.

No sh1t. I just got back from the Anacortes oyster run which had 30,000+ people in attendance, and everyone was drinking beer. There's nothing near Anacortes, everyone had a long ride back to wherever they live.
