    How about instead of doing that you could just transfer some funds into my bank account to help out a (IMHO) non-idiot chaser? :D

    His idiot whackerism makes us all look bad in the public eye. Hardly a worthy cause.

    In any large group of people there will be bad apples. Someone once told me that the more children you have ( I have five) the more likely you are to end up with a fry cook! In my profession (physician) we have bad apples too. One persons poor judgement or psychopathology should not reflect poorly on the entire storm chasing community.

    What was the assault charge for? Was it a fist-fight? Do you have any idea what the beef was?

    So very cool of you, Bob, and knowing / chasing / hanging out with you over the years and knowing you a little bit like I do....I'm not surprised you approached this situation with the upbeat attitude you did. Looking to extend HELP to a fellow chaser that's painted him or herself into a corner.....THAT'S THE SPIRIT I would love to see take hold and grow amongst fellow chasers. Lately there's been far too much dark and venomous "I'm reporting him to law enforcement", or, "I'll report him to his employer", or "I'm gonna report this to his sponsors" ......etc. etc. is just disgusting...it's petty beyond belief....and needs to be checked. It sure seems to me that some people sure want to try and control everybody else. Sighhhhh.

    You're trolling, right? Suggesting that chasers blatantly and dangerously violating the laws of this land should be allowed to do so as part of some "chaser code" is just silly. Ask a frat at Penn State how keeping quiet about doing something illegal worked for them...

    I don't remember it completely, but I think there's still a post on Facebook about what the beef was, I'll get the full story for you when I have access to FB, yes, it was a fist fight, and I'm not sure if the guy that was attacked filed charges or not, but I'd assume he did.

    I have red and blues on my Jeep, only because I can. :D

    Even had a county deputy say "man, your lights suck!".

    I cannot legally drive with them on however!
