388 arrests, huh? The article doesn't mention how many thousands of bikers were there. Usually in those small towns they simply take the arrestees for the misdemeanors before the judge who fines them and then they immediately let the detainees go. That's usually the system they use on tourists to fund the police dept. It might have been that 38 people were arrested 10 times each in revolving door fashion.
If it had been an equal number of cowboys for a big rodeo I'd bet you'd have 3,880 arrests.
that's because it wasn't a mayor or congressman driving. just an ordinary man...$1,000,000...what he did was wrong and he should pay the price, what the rich connected boys did was the SAME and they should have paid the price.
Jeez, I thought we were bad in Canada for letting DUI's off. I guess it's not any better in the US. 6 times; perhaps a pattern? In Canada the Lawyers and Judges seem to be on crack; they're dismissing solid cases because the suspects shoes could have been in disrepair, that's why he tripped. Not the fact that he'd consumed a couple of 26oz' ers.
The AMA used to say that 99% of the motorcycling public were law abiding, and 1% were the trouble makers. Well, Sturgis attracts about 500,000 people and when 388 arrests are considered it's actually .078%, so I guess we are making a bit of progress lately. Sounds pretty lame to me.
