I might need someone to cover me as I slice some tires.
It wouldn't look good for the Rifleman to get arrested.
Your covered.
Do what you need to do and get out quickly.

Let's wait for the entire story before we pass judgement on someone that is not known to any one of us. Accidents happen every single day and it is very unfortunate, but sometimes accidents result in fatalities and sometimes people are involved in accidents due to being in the wrong place at the wrong time. No one knows what was wrong with this guy. No one knows whether he was returning home from a party and the accident happened on the way home. For all you know he had already been home and had been at a party earlier. All that you know is what the media have stated and they don't always report ALL the facts. Often times they report ONLY the PARTS that they desire for the people to hear. I'd watch the kinds of threats that make about people talking about guns, slashing tires, knowing that someone is listed in the phone book. You may watch to see who will come looking for you. Just because this is allows for so-called anonymous status doesn't mean that it truely is and people can find you just as well as you could find them. It is ridiculous to talk this kind of trash about someone that you don't even know and then to say a person is listed and oh you're the one with the gun. That's just real smart, let me tell ya!

Hey Tried-and -convic ted did your good buddy bain get indited by the grand jury or not. If so maybe there is some truth to his killing Mike and Meredith with his big navigator against their small bikes. They did not have a chance.

My good buddy? How funny! Don't presume because I have an opinion that differs from yours that someone is my good buddy. I am just of the opinion that the law is the law and that people should be tried in court, not in the media. If you disagree with this fact, then there's not much left to be said.

I think that this forum shows how irrational people truly are. I mean, when people start talking about killing someone because somehow or another they have been sucked in by the media that has an agenda to shape public opinion, and they listen to only that which further reinforces what they already believe, then everyone is in trouble because then there is no real justice.

When we have a public that leaves behind their own opinions and their own personal convictions for those of the masses, then what hope for equality and justice is there?

Just because I am not of the "popular" opinion on this forum does not mean that I am in your opinion, buddies with this guy. You don't have to look back too far in History to understand that the "popular" opinion is not necessarily the "RIGHT" opinion and that people of conviction, who will not abandon their beliefs and faith in the law that was implemented to be just, may take the road less traveled and they may stand alone, but those are also the same people that have helped to bring about the positive attributes of this country, you know all those freedoms and liberties that everyone here enjoys. So, follow the leader and you might be surprised to see what you end up with. It's fairly easy to agree and be of the popular opinion; it's much more difficult to stand for what you believe in.

So, from your comment, I am presuming that you are related to this case as you are saying something about there being a grand jury trial. What was the outcome of the grand jury trial since you know the answer?

I wouldn't know the answer to the question since grand jury trials are private and to my knowledge there's been no information released in this case.

So, was he indicted or not and if so, on what charge(s)?

Please enlighten everyone with all of the FACTS of this case that you have. Like you said Bain "killed" these two cyclists, so I'm supposing that he's being charged with "murder"?

You act like this guy got in his vehicle, saw these two cyclists and said, well I guess I'm going to run over these people and kill them. Like he had some personal vengence and he had it out for cyclists. You know, it could have been another vehicle that he collided with, it could have been a tree, a homeless person, a jogger, a mailbox, a rich person, a poor person, a dog....the point is it happened to be cyclists and it happened....most people don't plan these type of things...NOT to say that the driver is NOT responsible because everyone knows something happened that day, and that two people's lives were destroyed and the lives of their families will be forever changed. Now whether the driver is found to be responsible because of actions (like if he was found to be intoxicated according to the laws of this state), or because of poor judgment (being tired, or whatever else led up to the death of these cyclists) only time and FACTS presented in the case (if it goes to trial) will TELL THE TRUTH of the matter.

It's sad that they are dead, but cyclists need to stop riding on roadways. They are slow and cause traffic problems. Hopefully other cyclists can learn from this and get on bike trails instead of streets.

2 years is a slap on the wrist, just like the detainees in Guantanimo, justice in this country is so blind.

Hey howdy ho Woody.
Toy Story 3 comes out in June,looking forward to that.

As for the murderer.....
He might be a man in years, but not maturity, thus calling him a boy is an insult on that dill weed.
