From USA Today:
Officer Dan Picagli, a 17-year veteran of the force, was hit while directing traffic in the rain Tuesday night. He had been wearing a black raincoat and a reflective vest.
The SUV was driven by John M. Walker Jr., a senior judge on the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York, who maintains court chambers in New Haven. He was leaving work when the accident happened, police said.
No charges have been filed.
Police Chief Francisco Ortiz said the accident remained under investigation, but officers did not feel it was necessary to test Walker for drugs or alcohol.
Walker, 65, voluntarily stepped down this month as chief judge of the court. He was appointed to the court in 1989 by President George H.W. Bush, who is a cousin of the judge.
"Officer Picagli was more than a cop," Mayor John DeStefano said in a statement Saturday. "He was someone who brought people together, who created a sense of community. He was a life enhancer to all with whom he came in contact. More than any memorial, his basic decency will keep his memory vibrant in our city."The good judge (must be nice if your cousin is President--that's ole Pappy Bush and not Georgie Porgie, our only never-elected "president" and also the ONLY PRESIDENT EVER APPOINTED BY THE SUPREME (IDIOT) COURT) was a little tired from a hard day's drinkin' at the office, we'd assume.
The Daily Growler predicts: This Walker-Bush will like all crooked Bush Family members, and that's all of 'em, folks, never do one damn ounce of time--not even community service. In fact, he'll probably be the next appointee to the Supreme Court of Idiots--who knows. He wasn't tested for drugs or alcohol--did you notice that? If you or I ran down and killed a cop with our SUV not only would we have been tested for drugs and alcohol we'd be in the slammer awaiting a hearing--unless they sent us to Gitmo and then, well, maybe we'll see you in the next life.
These rich assholes love their SUVs, don't they? Like Lizzy Grubman--they like to run peasants down with them, too. What fun! To the Bush Family, don't you know, cops are peasants--or did you know that?
Speaking of Neil Bush
From the Baltimore Sun:
WASHINGTON // A company led by President Bush's brother and partly owned by his parents is benefiting from Republican connections and federal money targeted for economically disadvantaged students under the No Child Left Behind Act.
With investments from his parents, George and Barbara Bush, and other backers, Neil Bush's company, Ignite Learning, has placed its products in 40 U.S. school districts and plans to market internationally.
Here's the whole article in case you were worried about Neil running low on funds:
Ah, at least one of the Bush babies is enterprising thanks to Pappy and Mammy helping him out; plus a little aid from We the People. Surely somebody has the figures on how much money the Bush Family has made off Georgie Porgie being the "decider"?
Hey, Amurican soldiers, why don't you do like your commander in chief and just go AWOL? What, you don't have an old gnarly Pappy as president to get your cowardly ass off the meathook? Too bad. Get ready to die for this AWOL National Guard wimp and his God-driven desire to destroy the world--the Thousand Points of Light are from the nuclear war he's trying to drive us into. We say send old Judge Walker--the New York judge with his court in New Haven--how do you get that to happen?--and his killer SUV to Iraq and let him chauffeur the troops over the top--hey, you can run down Iraqi traffic cops with impunity, Judge--"Go ahead, Judge, run down that towelhead cop over there. It's easier than hittin' one of those New Haven cops."
Marvin Bush--if you were concerned about Marvin Bush maybe not having a steady cash flow--hell, Marv's doin' fine--he's still got millions from when he was Security Chief for the World Trade Center right before it flopped to the ground, that wimp building--oh, and 9/11? Why that's the day Marvin's WTC Security contract ended. Books closed. Marvin's home bank--it's in the Cayman Islands, we betcha.
Georgie Porgie "Gently Admonishes" Ole Pappy Bush--A Little Bush Family Insight
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Bush gently admonished his father for saying he hates to think what life would be like for his son if the Democrats win control of Congress in the November 7 election.
It was the latest sign of possible strain in the relationship between the two men.
"He shouldn't be speculating like this, because -- he should have called me ahead of time and I'd tell him they're not going to (win)," a smiling Bush told ABC "This Week" in an interview broadcast on Sunday.It follows the recent release of a book, "State of Denial," by journalist Bob Woodward, that says the 82-year-old former president was "anguished" over how the Iraq war has played out, although he has dismissed that account.
Old Pappy Bush--82-year-old geeky white man--power let's you live forever.
