:( This guy must be Billy Lanes brother, it amazes me how many of these people are on the road killing and injuring people. Maybe goverment needs to enact a law that if you are caught DUI or under the influence involved in killing people behind the wheel a sentence of the death penalty or life in prison. That will never work though these drunks and drug users have rights LOL :cry: .

Released on a $1,000 bond! Give me a break. The least he will be charged with is 3 counts of neglegent homicide and under the infuence of illegal drugs. I'm sure there are other charges pending.

Ok, I get it; we accept the risk of this happening.

I have ridden this road many time and there just is no excuse for something like this happening. It is a nice basically straight road out in the middle of no where Indiana. This guy should be hung and they just let him back out. He'll probably be driving drunk at some point again within the next month.

How sad, one of those killed was a doctor and father of seven, another a mother of four who lost her husband last year.

This is a real tragedy.

I, too, am amazed at the bond of only $1,000.

Actually I'm dumbfounded. How can that be? Truly it's an injustice.

My heart goes out to the hurting families.

Goes to show you why all the Judges that can be voted out of office should be. Maybe then they will wake up.

Bond was $4,000 not $1,000. Should have been $400,000.

Somewhere around 30 years ago I was attending a social function with some relatives in Sweden. There were several people there who absolutely did NOT drink anything alcholic. They were the designated drivers. I think the first offense was (a) you forfeit your license for life plus spend some time in jail, and (b) the state gets the car. Period. No exceptions.

I like those laws. They work.

We kill something like 40,000 or 50,000 people a year in vehicle accidents, and a large percentage of those are a result of drugs or alcohol. Killing less than 10% of that doing anything else results in an enormous outcry and quick action to enact laws. When will we get smart, as a nation, on DUI?

We all should really Join the AMA...of the Riders Associations, they seem to be the only ones willing to put the money into Motorcycle legislation...Just my opinion...

Unfortunately, judges are usually lawyers first - and everyone knows what scum most lawyers are. Don't think that someone becomes pure when they put on that black robe. Get rid of one bad judge and there are plenty of scum lawyers to take his place.

I work in the criminal justice system and it sure is broken here in Tucson.

My heart sank when we heard this on the radio while riding the 'Wing that day. It really struck home because we had just passed a parking lot where bikes were stopping for one leg of a massive poker run for charity.

I was reveling in the joy and community that they were sharing.

The news we then heard brought the emotions full circle in a matter of minutes. Thoughts are with family and friends.
