    Strip Club Fight Ends with 2 Men Losing Legs | FOX8.com

    The article was sent to me by a friend; I sure hope the two victims recuperate quickly. It'd be nice if one of the MINI dealerships in their area would retrofit their Cabrio with the necessary parts so they can still enjoy the freedom which comes from motoring...

    Hahahahahaha only Fox News would cover something stupid like this.

    Hummm drunk guys get in fight at strip club at 3:00 am who would have thunk it...hahaha

    Safe to say all 3 won't be driving drunk anytime soon. Hope those $15.00 beers to make 4's look like 9's & 10's was worth it since they all will be dating your hands for a long time.

    Yup I think it was nothing more than a BMW on Mini Hate Crime.

    Spending 15 years of my distant past as a bouncer, I'm sorry to say, the story didn't even cause me to raise an eyebrow, I've seen drunks do REALLY STUPID things

    Frankly I'm glad there are news outlets that will pick up on these stories....
    Just a few more like this and it will put a complete end to guy's getting drunk & going to strip clubs. :D

    :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Some follow-up

    --

    The driver behind a horrific DUI crash that left two men without legs received the maximum sentence of five years and four months in state prison.

    Terrence Meeks rammed his BMW into a parked Mini Cooper outside a strip club near downtown L.A., pinning to men standing in front of the car on March 10. The force of the crash severed both legs of one victim and crushed the right leg of the other victim so badly that it had to be amputated.

    Meeks pleaded no contest to the DUI crash. In exchange for his plea, one count of driving with .08 percent blood-alcohol causing injury was dismissed.

    One of the victims addressed the court at the sentencing hearing Wednesday.

    "I suffer from the dreams of the white car coming at me, but in this dream, I wake up before it hits me. I suffer from the anxiety of not being able to sleep. I have to have help to go to the bathroom. I can't even take care of myself," said Sal Wilson. "I had a great job, a great career before this happened."

    Meeks' mother spoke to the court as well, apologizing to the victims and begging for their forgiveness.

    "This has been a tragedy for everybody involved," she said. "My son is not the kind of person that would do something like this intentionally."

    Initially, there were allegations that Meeks yelled out racial slurs at the two men, who are both Latino, as he crashed into them. But the D.A. later said there was no evidence of that. The D.A. also said there was not enough evidence to charge Meeks with attempted murder in the crime, which is what police arrested him for.

    Lets see 2 guys get a life sentence of being handicapped. Somehow 5 years & 4 months does not seem to be a just sentence for the person who committed the crime.

    It's always such a comfort to know there's a mind out there that's equal to or sicker than my own.

    Thanks Dave! :beer
