Glad nobody died, but I do have a problem with NASCAR censorship and cops bullying the fans.

It's a reputation that Daytona Beach has made for itself. With exception to the airport which is privately owned, the land off of Clyde Morris Boulevard on the southwest side of International Speedway Boulevard, belongs to the France family. The France Family is given almost entire tax break on there property by keeping it off the tax roll, to redistribute money back to the government officals. Government properties are privately owned, from Nova Road-I.S.B. to Clyde Morris this directs money to the track. Just as Daytona has a reputation allowing for itinerant vending for people from out of town, it's kept low that they do the same thing with police officers from another part of the county. It launders money out of town.

Shocked yes, suprised, no. Daytona Beach city officials have a history of lawsuits, waisting tax payers money. A bartender was physically beaten, to the point, where full recovery is a matter of question. The man that beat him, recieved probation, anger management classes, with a history of violent abuse. Erin Joynt was run over by an oversized beach vehicle driven by beach patrol. A lawsuit against former beach patrol Captain and members of his former staff, for sexual, conduct involving minors. A lawsuit, against a city offical for giving legal advise to a minor, regarding drug treatment without parental consent, before the doctors offices was raided by the F.B.I. for illegal prescription use. This is apart from the fact, that motorcycle accidents happen with fatal results twice a year, only to learn that city officals try to extend the time limit on bike events. The reason for these accidents are that proper road work was never even open for discussion.

There is also a lawsuit, against the Desert Inn hotel, for the opperation of Child pornography. The former manager is behind bars. The owner of the hotel [Doris Devlin] remains open for business.

Do ambulance chasers want their clients to slither,crawl,or just walk on all fours like they do?

This is definately a personal injury lawsuit. Ambulance chaser's make a case out of anything, to waste tax money gain recognition to build their reputation, and gain celebrity status = This type of free raign in the legal system is tacky! It becomes media speculation leading to an impartial jury, and a case too difficult to understand & win. Casey Anthony, George Zimmerman serve as an example. The corruption and money in Daytona beach certainly, extends to the Daytona Beach News Journal [Pat Rice] in keeping news about the victims away from the press, focusing instead, on Nascar driver Michael Annett's injuries first and foremost, leaving anyone to wonder if the victims will be considered news/. Wele 1380 [Ormond Beach- Big John who has stock in I.S. corp. is of course showing more suuport,for the racetrack, and refering to the accident as unfortunate claiming the France family will look into what caused the accident to happen, Corupt, S.O.B.!! Everything in the opposite direction.

Three people have hired Morgan & Morgan, to represent them. Others have hired high profile attourney's in Orlando. An emergency phone call indicted, that a tire had caused serious injury, to several people. The ambulance, that was supposed to be on the property, became difficult to locate. The Daytona 500 continued on Sunday.

Chief Chitwood shows up on Bernier once a month, in a segment called Ask the cheif. Something isn't right, if Chitwood has to appear on the radio regularly to explain his side of the recent news. Bernier definately stands behind corruption, his talent as a complete jerk proves that. Chitwood appears on Bernier to hide any idea of wrong doing, because he appears so often- or it at least looks very suspicious.
