It's was a horrible accident. My heart goes out to the families. The news did a cover story on thisRead More stretch of highway. It showed 172 accident 6 deaths and 58 injuries. The state needs to take a look into that. I do feel his bail is excessive. Let alone made him out to look like a murderer who intentionally did this. I guarantee he wishes it was him rather than to take 4 lives. I think there are many occupations that don't require log books yet these people have been up for 24 hrs + and they get behind the wheel. Yes he should be held responsible but There are people committing horrific crimes that don't get that kind of bail. I know when something horrible happens they want to throw the book at that person. Unfortunately nothing will change the outcome. A perfect example is cell phones. Many deaths have resulted from people causing accidents while on the phone. It's against the law to use them when driving but I see it every day. I will say people are responsible for there actions and there the only ones to blame. Don't put the blame on the state police. That's not on them. I feel for them and everyone on that scene because no doubt it was a horrific accident scene

Truck traffic on 55 is insane, its getting way out of control and just today there were 11 trailersRead More with 9 of them going 3x3. Its like driving on the same tracks as a locomotive train.

What's with the mention of the restriction for a vision disability. I have one of those on myRead More license. It means I wear corrective lenses. The guy most likely fell asleep at the wheel, you can do that while having perfect eyesight.

Stop the revolving door of justice(nonjustice!)!! Once they are involved in a crime involving a gun,Read More they should be sentenced to Hard Labor.. That's right, just like the Old Days!! No more of this crap where they lay around and get free room and board! Put them out in chain gangs and let them work! Screw the bleeding hearts who want to be nice to felons! Most of these people are hardened criminals..once again, if you do the crime, you do the time..But, now make it Hard Time that may sway them to straighten up!!

ATTENTION PATCH EDITOR ET AL.... This fellow Louis Fasullo needs to be reported to localRead More authorities. His comment is not only highly confused...but also borders on a confession of sorts. Check into his ISP address...and contact appropriate persons.

Dale: Silly boy, the title of the article merely states the fact that the accused attended a bibleRead More college in Indiana. Nothing about his religion; if any. Only attendance. Do try to be attentive, before you,(again), post falsely.

What a dummy...if I was the girl I would NEVER speak to him again, ever...he could easily haveRead More gotten her arrested & charged b/c she innocently revealed details about her job duties...trust is something a relationship is supposed to be built upon & not using that trusted information to commit an illegal act.

This is an excellent idea. As a former first responder and a current Emergency Management SpecialistRead More consultant, it is vital that these groups work together in realistic situations to evaluate their response capabilities. It is best to assess and know your gaps and mitigate those prior to an actual event/incident. Any community that is not participating in these type exercises is doing a great disservice to those living there, the children, the parents, the staff, and the fellow first responders. You don't want the day of the incident to be the first time that you meet the Chief of the next county over. You need to establish relationships, develop plans and understand how those plans overlap and what assumptions are made within them, train together and exercise based on objectives with independent evaluators. God forbid your community is ever faced with such a tragedy, those that you count on will be prepared to respond in a timely fashion with a joint plan that has been exercise, with little to no gaps.

I'm finding it hard to believe the's anything "legal" anywhere, about driving a motorcycleRead More between two neighboring cars on the interstate. Either way, it seems some of these guys have death wishes. There are far easier (and much less messy) ways to kill yourself.

Anti-social personality disorder? And to do that with a GPS ankle monitor on? His best defenseRead More that it wasn't him would be that it only recorded a max speed of 115. That biker clearly exceeded that by 30+
