The real justice may come in civil court.



Also on the upside, Janklow doesn't look like he takes real good care of himself...he may not live three years to drive again.

Definitely not true. A felony conviction supersedes. It would have to be an ordinary and necessary expense if memory serves me right.

I don't know if any journalistic principles are involved in reproting on stories not directly related to motorcycle hardware, but this headline, and most of the posts here are entirely misleading.



Janklow will serve 100 days in county jail.



As reproted in CNN and the article linked, the work release after 30 days is periodic, after which he will return to jail, and even while on work release he will spend each night in jail.



<blockquote>Circuit Court Judge Rodney Steele today sentenced Janklow to serve his time beginng in Feb. 7 in the Minnehaha County Jail in Sioux Falls for second-degree manslaughter and three misdemeanors in connection the accident. He will be eligible for work release after 30 days but must spend each night in jail. Janklow also received a suspended imposition of sentence, which means if he completes his jail time and a term of probation the felony conviction will be removed from his record.</blockquote>



While I certainly wouldn't call that a just sentence myself, I think it is just the slightest bit irresponsible to post this article in such an inflammatory manner. Especially when the subject already creates such strong feeling in the site's readership.



This could have been handled much better.

My email to South Dakota Governor Mike Rounds:



Dear Governor Rounds:



The State of South Dakota should be ashamed! YOU should be ashamed! The Attorney General should be ashamed! The judge in JanklowÂ’s case should be publicly censured. A sentence of 100 days, and eligible for work release after only 30 days for a confirmed, self-described traffic scofflaw is the most disgusting, repugnant and insulting sentence for a murderer since OJ Simpson walked free for murdering two people. If there is any possible way to remanded this ridiculous sentence and give Mr. Janklow a more deserving sentence of at least 2 to 5 years in prison, I sincerely hope you attempt to do the same.



Individuals in the motorcycling community are outraged and as well they should be. ItÂ’s bad enough when someone is killed accidentally, but to call Mr. JanklowÂ’s actions accidental is outrageous. I hope all motorcyclists send a clear message to the people of South Dakota by boycotting this state of sanctioned murder.



I welcome your personal remarks.

Excellent.



I fired off an email to Bill O'Reilly's show hoping he might give it some coverage.



He frequently mentions the powerful protecting themselves.



I live in San Diego too. I've been boycotting SD for almost 40 years now! lol
