Learn how to spell "settle" and then maybe you won't look quite so much like your idiot friend. People died here. Not sure how you can defend that. Wonder if it had been you?

You can access the petition by going to thevmc.com . You can go in as a guest, go to Forums, then scroll down to "Great Lakes Region", then go to "Indy Powersports Chapter", and the thread is called "Petition - Newkirk Bond Hearing". The petition and rest of the email we sent out explaining the petition is there. Thanks!

Just a quick note to say a letter I wrote to the Crawfordsville journal will be published tomorrow along with a plea for support for the three families at the courthouse on Thursday. Look for it in the letters to the editor. Thanks guys and keep up the support. The families all appreciate it I am sure. ALSO, the editor of the paper says they have aprtnered with channel 8 in Indy about this story and they will be having continued coverage on channel 8 for the continuation f the trial and process all the way through. Way to go COmmunity.

This idiot should be put under the jail. Since the wreck, he was picked up again for DUI and had meth in the vehicle. I wonder why the Star hasn't published a story about that.
Understand that the Star News, like too many news sources, simply pick and choose what to present and how to present "news" to us. Too often an important story such as a followup, is simply not important to the reporters. Seems like most "reporters" with the Star News, don't even do any reporting, but simply repeat what is said or what they thought was said. No in depth reporting here.

Just got the word, that the Judge denied Newkirk's request for bail, so he'll be behind bars for at least awhile longer. No details yet... Thanks to ALL who responded with the petition!! We got well over 200 responses!! Thanks SOOOOOOOOO much!!!! The families and friends of the victims thank you! Now on to the next phase... conviction!

Abate Biker....You did hear correctly...it was a full house on our side. There were reps from Terre Haute and Bloomington VMC. We got exactly what we wanted. He will not be driving on the streets of Indiana for a very long time. We had almost 700 responses from the petition. As for the conviction of the criminal...that will be soon I hope. Judge says he had a chance and blew it,,,no second or third time.

There were probably 15-20 people from what I heard. Unfortunately I couldn't go due to work commitments. It's too bad we have to burn vacation on such a loser...

Abate biker, I miss understood your question. There were only 2 bikers present other than the ones that were rideing the day of the crash. Both of these bikers were friends of ours that we have ridden with in the past. I did not see any other bikers there.

There was an article and now there's a forum posting running on the Indy Star too. Some idiot preaching about wearing helmets.... Like that would have helped in this accident...
