Faux News: Janklow Blabbers about his fatal accident
Just FYI. I think it ended now. My dad has it on, and I'm still trying to get him to change to CNN or MSNBC because Faux is as useless compared to say, a duck to a tadpole.

1. He was driving recklessly.
He killed a man. I know a kid got 9 years for a similar crime. Janklow will probably get re-elected.

2. Yes, he is playing the "I'm sick" scam.
Interesting, he said he had his pancreas removed! I don't know anyone without a pancreas....There have been attempts to transplant the pancreas with questionable success. It very new at this point.

Janklow is a fat-fart too....Not that sick.....believe you me!

He was babbling'pretending to experience forgetfulness....Oh, Gees, who is going to buy this shit? The media?

Lets ask Dr. Gupta about the panceas yarn......

4. hmmm...having a pancreas removed
is now a legitimate reason behind criminal negligence and vehicular homicide...what friggin planet is he from? If he legitimately was sick then guess what...don't get behind the wheel of a fucking car you asshole! Someone is dead because of his negligence and recklessness.

5. Another good point.
Thats why there are medical screening on drivers license, such as seizure disorders, diabetes, etc.....

Did he have that on his license?

7. does that account for all of his previous speeding tickets
that he laughed about a few years ago? What a maroon. So much for personal responsibility.

3. Did he mention the "oncoming car" he had to swerve to avoid?
Did he mention the multiple times he's cited an "oncoming car" when he's been stopped (though seldom if ever cited) for speeding or C & I over the past 12 years?

Did he mention the fact that neither police nor witnesses saw any oncoming car in any of these incidents, including the fatal hit-and-run he caused by speeding and blowing through a stop sign?

Did he mention the number of times he's been stopped for speeding (I believe it's 12 times in five years)?

8. No, now he is the "victim"

Of this horrible tragedy.

Should we take up a collection for his defense?

I have never seen such shamelessness

6. It was also being carried by CNN.

Sometimes more than just Faux panders to the same "do compassionately unto me that which I've almost always refused to do compassionately unto others" storyline.


(Note: IMHO, this actually is technically LBN. LBN isn't really strictly limited to 'print' media articles. Furthermore, such live events often get 'print' article coverage subsequently, and can be added to the thread. It'd be preferred, I believe, to use a Subject line that matches the news channel's screen banner. Thus, a subject line of "FoxNews: 'Janklow Talks'" -- or whatever they called it onscreen -- would be far preferable to our inclination to 'create' one of our inimitable own. That'd be consistent with the Subject=Headline rule for 'print' news media articles, but isn't specifically required in the rules for broadcast media LBN.)

At the same time, no actual "news" is being cited in this thread's initiation, merely Fox programming (which we can do without). So, let's lock and possibly (re)load.

10. That was absolutely depressing to watch
No need to worry he has started to heal.

Not only did he go on and on in a monotone voice but it was all poor poor pitiful me type stuff.
