The Long Arm of the Law..

...poor girl almost drown..which is sad....I don't want ANYONE to drown...well..except terrorists....anyway....she get's seen on TV....and then the cops come and bust is just BAAAAAAAD Karma...if your driver's license is revoked, follow the rule of law, and don't drive...if you do drive, you should be punished...not drowned...but punished....

WINFIELD, West Virginia (AP) -- A woman whose rescue from her flooded car was broadcast on CNN and The Weather Channel was later arrested when a deputy who saw the TV footage realized her driver's license had been revoked.

Putnam County Sheriff's Deputy David Bailey, saw Christy Walker, 37, on a newscast November 19. A TV crew filmed her driving past screaming firefighters, fire trucks and cones set up to block part of a roadway covered in water. Her car submerged and she was rescued by volunteer firefighters.

Comments so far:

I think they should impound these idiots vehicles, if they retrieve em, for like 6 months after they drive into running water.

Suspending a license is silly; they will still drive, just drive illegally. Taking their car on the other hand lets them still drive *something* legally, just not their vehicle provided it didn't end up at the bottom of a river somewhere.

I should run for governator. If Arnold can do it, anyone can.

I thought your blog was dead, Neo...I checked it for the past week, and it was not there..but, you're right...most people who lose their right to drive due to illegal behavior could care LESS about driving without proper documentation..

Heh, West Virginia... she's probably related to me. I had to move to California just so I could marry outside my family shrub.
But us hillbillies have some sort of law-disregard-gene, I think. How else do you explain all the moonshine? And I can remember my grandfather trading betting tips (he was a part-time bookie) with the local garage owner for free inspection stickers, sans inspection.
We're just born rebels, us ridge runners. :)
But this chick? Yeah, she was stupid.

We thank you most kindly.
(That's the royal "we", by the way, with an accompanying wave of the Cheesy Scepter, which does double duty as the toilet brush, but nevermind that, it's the regality that counts.)
