  1. I like the combination of the two and think the song is pretty good. Of course, wish they had combined back in both their haydays
  2. If this was the big surprise, they failed! Something I’ll end of purchasing with zero excitement over. But I’m sure plenty others are excited. Was hoping for someth8ng way better
  3. Great day for that lady. In this area, Bruce sightings not all that rare, but a Mellencamp sighting…that’s news! I’ve run into Bruce a number of times over the years. Wish I had known, only 15 minutes or so from my house
  4. Definitely a hard pass for me. Still hoping for something exciting before end of the year!
  5. I hope so, but if this is in place of either of those, huge disappointment For me at least. If this was the big surprise, they need to recalibrate their measuring sticks
  6. Extreme disappointment for me, was hoping for BITUSA box or Tracks 2
  7. This would be an extreme disappointment if this was the big surprise. Was hoping for something in the realm of a musical release
  8. Sure hoping that this is NOT the big surprise this year. If so, failed miserably
  9. Also as a funny side note......What is the most common answer given to an officer conducting a DWI stop when asking a driver how many drinks have you had tonight? Like Bruce......the answer is 2
  10. Now some clarity to the Attorney Kassman that is quoted earlier. Despite the fact that you can be found guilty with a BAC under .08%, it is a very rare event. So I would say in my experience that his comment about never getting a conviction is accurate. As I stated earlier, alcohol does not mix well with numerous prescribed drugs and of course the Alcotest does not measure the existence or amount of any narcotics/ prescribed drugs in your system. If the officer’s observations did not line up with the reading that was achieved. They should have taken him to the hospital and had blood drawn. It would have been the only way to prove that he was impaired after the low BAC reading and that there was more at play than just alcohol. judging by what’s out so far, I would say a conviction would be a heavy lift. Doesn’t make the officer wrong, but I’d love to see any body cam footage of the incident
  11. Ok, let me take a stab at this one. When a local, county or state officer makes an arrest, they generally disseminate that information to local papers by either press releases or a department approved information for the police blotter. Arrests, reports and general info However, I am not sure that the Federal Agencies do the same. The APP which is the main Monmouth/Ocean County papers, I have never seen a Sandy Hook blotter in that paper. And I used to read the police blotters quite regularly. So if the Federal Park Rangers do release that information, I have no clue where that would be. I would lean towards them either not announcing them or only announcing them periodically ( maybe in this case months). Local PD’s generally are in the paper between 1 to 3 weeks
  12. I’m going to take an educated guess from the different reports. While not versed on procedure of Federal Park Rangers. Since he has not been charged with Refusal to my knowledge, it appears to me that he refused a PBT on scene. Those PBT readings are used towards probable cause to arrest and usually added info to the standard field sobriety tests. You are not mandated by law to take the PBT. It would make sense that he was arrested on scene and then brought into the PD and was asked again to submit to breath samples which is mandatory by law. If the .02% reading is true, it’s from these tests that the reading comes from I think the confusion here, is any reading on the PBT is not your official BAC level in court and is mainly used towards officer’s probable cause to arrest. Not taking it left the officer one less tool in the tool box leaving him to make his decision on observations and balance tests. Your official BAC is taken inside the PD, most likely taken on the Drager Alcotest . This is where Bruce probably complied with the officer and submitted samples of his breath and where the .02% BAC reading is being quoted from
  13. But yes, I’d say hold off as you see that more bits coming out as time goes by and conflicting the earlier reports
