Good deal. Thanks for the update.

Let's hope the state rep doesn't use his 'influence' on the DA and try to get this downplayed. It will be hard now that it's made the news.

The GA state rep, Trey Kelly, is the Majority Whip, basically the #2 guy behind the Speaker of the House. The Speaker, David Ralston, is a poster child for the "good-ole-boy" network. He has not had one thing to say about the entire incident. Maybe it is just my skeptical nature, but you can guess the DA has had "a conversation" with somebody already. Just listen to the way the DA danced around the reporter's questions...

I always yell back; "Do you want me to get in my car and get back to discuss?" Never got a reply so far, but if need be I can get in my car and educate those a holes.

Also, regarding the original post, if somebody did that to me while riding, I wouldnt be very concerned about the legal proceedings, because my relatives would find him and run him over for sure.
