My sentiments exactly, I wrote something else as well on the Jacknoff news topic, but right now I'm pounding the hell out of my keyboard, so instead of breaking it over a POS named Jacknoff, I'm going to sit down and a beer...and then I'm sending off a letter to SD, certified mail.

Seems Janklow is a "hard-line law and order" guy only when it applies to others.



This sentence is unbelievably light. Many people in this forum expected this kind of thing, though....

Re: Janklow will only serve 30 days in jail
 
This is truly a travesty. There are people serving longer sentences for other offenses that are nothing compared to what he did.

I hope the Scott family wins big in the lawsuit.

What a sad state our country is in today.

I wonder how much time Janklow would have demanded that one of us "little people" recieve, if we had run over, and killed one of his family members. VWW

Re: Janklow will only serve 30 days in jail
 
They call that a sentence??? 30 days??? For killing someone??? This jerk had a record of reckless driving. It was only a matter of time with this low life. That is what makes this sentence even worse. He has no excuse for his actions. It's like driving drunk, getting caught twice, doing it again and killing someone. Once again money and power gets another off free.

Re: Janklow will only serve 30 days in jail
 
Well, I was hopeful that, since his previous record could be introduced in the sentencing stage, the judge would see this case for what it is. This was not an "accident," this was callous disregard for human life, and you knew that sooner or later someone was going to get killed. I am pissed off at this so-called "sentence." I do think bikers should organize and, at the very least, flood ND with e-mail and letters. I am not a violent guy, really, but I sort of wish I could meet Janklow in a dark alley somewhere... I hope that 30 days is long enough for him to get really "intimate" with some other prisoner, possibly some 350lb guy named Bubba. It just stinks. BTW, I don't know if you have heard. but a black teenager in Georgia had *consensual* sex with someone who was almost sixteen and because of Georgia law he is facing a mandatory 10-yr sentence. A guy with a 3.96 GPA, etc. etc.

Where the f*** is justice here?

Re: Janklow will only serve 30 days in jail
 
Well, there I sat in my satellite truck waiting for the verdict while my photographer took a nap. We were expecting no time at all actually, but were the jaded press. Anywho, a man stepped up to the truck and told me he is the reason that Janklow is in trouble. I asked why, and he proceeded to tell me that he was teh heckeler that got Janklow all upset that night. And he has a website up explaining why Janklow is an assh#le. Check it out and realize that its a site from a un verified man. But then it could be some truth up there. www.geocities.com/mschutterle

Re: Janklow will only serve 30 days in jail
 
Why would this surprise anyone?



The culprit here is the judge. The people of the locality did their job as the jury verdict shows.



There is little doubt that someone other than a FatCat Pol, in the exact same circumstances, would have gotten a couple of years at least. Unless this is one of these judges who likes to let dangerous criminals off easy. There is no shortage of judges like that all across the US.



If I were a rich man I would hire a PI to do some investigating to look for any relationships between Jackloff and the Judge. If anything came up then a media campaign against the judge at re-election time might just send the right message to other corrupt judges. However, if the AMA did that then they would probably get shafted in any other court cases given the way lawyers and judges protect each other. So it probably wouldn't be wise in the long run for the AMA to go after the judge.



If I were to avoid visiting any jurisdiction where motorcyclists have been treated this shabbily I wouldn't be able to ride anywhere. But I'd never blame anyone who engaged in a boycott. The whole thing is too disgusting. I'll ride places that don't make me feel sick to my stomach.

A friend of mine served 30 days for shoplifting from Wal-Mart. Just to put things in perspective. There should be some sort of common sense check and balance system in the courts.

Instead of boycotting Sturgis, let's just relocate the Rally to Janklows personal estate!

You know if any regular Joe like us had done the same crime with the same driving record, we would be looking at years. And to echo a sentiment posted by others here, there is no consistency in sentencing in this country... the judges should just roll dice stop pretending that there is any logic behind it.

I hope the AMA will sponsor some official protest.

leach7 01-23-2004 03:21 AM

Re: Janklow will only serve 30 days in jail
 
I find it disturbing that, at least in what I read, the judge only considered his past work as a "civil servant" and not his well documented driving habits. Someone in the article I read on CNN.com actually suggested that Janklow should be allowed to do community service, such as speaking to young drivers!! I don't know about you, but I sure don't want him spreading his special driving tips around to kids where I live.

leach7 01-23-2004 03:24 AM

Re: Janklow will only serve 30 days in jail
 
Unfortunately, it looks like there is a very good chance the taxpayers will have to pay a significant portion of any judgement the Scott family receives in a civil trial, because Janklow was coming from an "official event". I hope that is not true, but that is what I saw in a few different articles.

Hey EBass...Don't tempt me! I would not mind joining you to see if I too could stand 30 days in SD.

Folks, this kind of crap goes on all the time - not just when a fellow motorcyclist gets it.

Inform yourself then vote early and often! In the long run, it is your best and most potent weapon. In the short run....30 days ain't so long....

EricZZR 01-23-2004 04:24 AM

Who was the judge?
 
Can someone please post the name and addresss of the judge so we can let him know we think he is a moron? This sentence is disgusting. Janklow should have gotten 10 years.

Re: Janklow will only serve 30 days in jail
 
Many years ago a friend of mine was involved in an almost identical incident,he blew through a stop sign at 50mph and hit another car and killed a young girl in the car.He was 20yrs old at the time and probably no money for an attorney and no political pull,he got 20yrs in the big one.

Re: Janklow will only serve 30 days in jail
 
I don't think he will meet Bubba in the Minehaha county jail. Probably something like the Mayberry jail. They probably will provide escort services for him.



Typical American justice, the well connected get away with murder, the poor go to jail for 10 years for minor offenses. Not wonder the world sees us as arrogant pigs.

Re: Janklow will only serve 30 days in jail
 
The kid's name is Marcus Dixon. Along with the 3.96 GPA, he also had a football scholarship to Vanderbilt University. He made the (understandable for a teenager) mistake of messing around with a white girl in a white community in Georgia. Marcus had a very bright future, but he apparently pissed off the wrong people and doesn't have money or political power enough to bail him out of the mess. Marcus gets 10 years for doing what I'd bet a LOT of us did at that age, or would've done given an opportunity. Meanwhile, Janklow gets 30 days for reckless disregard for human life, resulting in death. Such a shame. I cut the word "fair" out of my dictionary a long time ago. Getting the x-acto knife out now for the word "justice." Life is much simpler without these words. Sad, I know. As others have said on this board, respond with your votes and your dollars (where you spend 'em). It's all us "regular folk" have, but it's very powerful if everyone pulls together.

Re: Janklow will only serve 30 days in jail
 
You like that too? Crooks like Jackoff live like kings at taxpayer expense. They abuse their power to the greatest extent they think they can get away with. They take actions as govt officials that do far more harm than good.



And some corrupt judge calls it "public service". Punks who knock over 7-11s do less harm to our society than such "servants". Like we're supposed to feel priveleged that these scummy thieves steal us blind to support their nasty habits.

Re: Janklow will only serve 30 days in jail
 
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.

travisyoung 01-23-2004 06:07 AM

Re: Janklow will only serve 30 days in jail
 
Definitely not true. A felony conviction supersedes. It would have to be an ordinary and necessary expense if memory serves me right.

Re: Janklow will only serve 30 days in jail
 
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.
