Sometimes it's hard to keep your cool when you hear comments like that of X-Biker. For your information, one of the bikers killed was wearing a helmet so unless you know what you're talking about then keep your mouth shut punk.

I was one of the injured in that crash and my husband and I were both wearing helmets. We have never ridden without one. Please keep those kind of remarks to yourself unless you know what you are talking about. Out of the five of us..3 were wearing helmets.

Indiana law states that a motorcyclist over the age of 18 does not "HAVE TO" wear a helmet. Therefore, these people were out enjoying their freedoms and had it destroyed by a prick who drove under the influence and crossed the center line. For you to come on here and make such a broad statement proves to me that you are an idiot whom probably has never even sat on a motorcycle. Please remove the word "Biker" from your handle. You don't deserve it.
Look who the idiot is.... I never said anything but it would not have hurt if they were wearing helmets. It is very obvious you know absolutely nothing about what really happened that day.

Get drunk and take out a few more innocent people? I would THINK he would want to stay away from drugs and alcohol, PARTICULARLY WHILE DRIVING. We have every right to talk trash about trash.

TO THINK THAT TREE MIGHT HAVE BEEN MOTORCYCLES.

Sleeping officer crashes into tree

The Montgomery County Merit Board will review a crash that occurred Monday when an officer fell asleep while on duty.

Montgomery County Officer David Johnson, 58, was traveling north on Whitlock Avenue when he fell asleep and drove the squad car into a tree, according to the crash report.

Johnson, who did not remember the crash, awoke after the air bag deployed striking him in the face. He remained in the vehicle until medical assistance arrived. He was transported to Saint Clare Medical Center where he was treated and released for a broken hand.
An alcohol test performed at the Montgomery County Jail showed no sign of alcohol in Johnsonís system.

ďAnytime someone on-duty has an accident you have to submit to an alcohol test,Ē Montgomery County Chief Deputy Gary Truax said.ďIt is a routine process.Ē

The squad car was totaled, Traux said.
The accident will be reviewed by the merit board, who will make a determination if any disciplinary action will be taken, at the Tuesday meeting, he said. The board reviewing accidents of on-duty officers is also a routine process, Truax said.

Johnson will be off work for up to eight weeks for recovery, Truax said.

First of all... you are a jagoff!
Secondly, Newkirk (obviously yer bud) killed 3 innocent people due to his gross negligence. As a matter of fact, I wouldn't doubt that he was getting drunk and high at your house before this happened. Probably even the 2nd time he got picked up.
Do us all a favor. Go visit yer bud on his birthday and hide a noose in the cake. Momo!
Itís bikerís like you that make the rest of the world think bikerís are morons. Thank god I know not all bikerís are not like you. I do feel for those whose reputations your ignorance is running

I was a patient of Dr. Brooksby's and still miss his expertise and gift as a doctor and hands on healer. My heart breaks for the families and their losses. I hope Dr. B's children can forgive their father's killer ~ not for the murderer's sake but for their own. Such hatred will eat you alive and destroy your soul. You are in my prayers.
Dr B RIP

Just heard this a'hole is up for release for good behavior. Oh I see. Kill three people because of your drug addiction, get out in 6 years.
What the FOCK. File petitions or let your voice be heard to the Montgomery County Courts, inmate ID 184340. Needs to happen before next friday, so get off your butts and let your voice be heard. 5 years for killing three people, and a 4th who died years later from complications due to injuries caused by this bastard.
Justice has NOT been served.
