West said "he had no contact with Jackson other than when he assisted the trainee in administering a portable Breathalyzer test."
I am to believe this Trooper had no idea the make of vehicle his opponent drove, let alone her exact license plate number!!! Yeah right. I am sure it was purely coincidence.
PUHHHLEEEASE!!! That's about as believable as the new three dollar bill in circulation.

Who really cares if he was following her. He did what he was supposed to do, get this drunk off the street before she kills someone.

HE TOLD THE OTHER OFFICER TO LET HER GO!! only when the trainee smelled alcohol was there even a question! how ignorant people have become. the woman is running for whitestown town council for crying out loud - NOT president! i highly doubt there is a friggin conspiracy.

again --- HOW IGNORANT.

you would be singing a different tune if this drunk driver had been let go just to avoid conflict among the candidates and she hit you, or worse-someone you love, and killed them. i'll say it once more HOW INGORANT?!!

why dont all of the people who honestly believe that this woman was somehow tricked into getting drunk (and driving and speeding and then getting arrested) start your own little community in the middle of nowhere away from the rest of us who still have brains, and let her be your friggin president. because if you are that stupid, you deserve eachother.

Why do all of the alter-egos write and then answer themselves? I notice that they always say the same thing and then answer themselves in the different forums. This paper's forums are getting to be a joke.
Unless you have first hand info about a situation, how can you find a person guilty until proven innocent?There should be a better way to set up a person.

Reading the article poses a question
for me, why was the Trooper going to let her go in the 1st place for 80MPH
in a 55 zone ?

This also poses a 2nd question, if the Trooper had been by himself, would he have made the same choice to let her go or do his job ?

Wow, sounds like there's more going on here with some of you than just being disappointed with a local official...
Calling out ex husbands... drug allegations... sex for developers?
And you're signing your names?

Hey,

What is her maiden name, where did she go to school? It sounds like this woman is way too immature to be on a council of any kind.

Very interesting...
I saw this story and read the posts last week. There were 16 or 17 comments then.
I guess some of the inflammatory comments were too much?
