Surprised no one else picked this up. The printed magazine BoatUS sends out to their members (or maybe just insurance cusomers?) REALLY could not say enough good about SA this issue.

 

BoatUS pretty much gives SA credit for what justice was achieved at Clear Lake. The lawyers that defended Dinius pretty much said SA was a real time research team for them and made a big difference in the outcome. Clean and Ed- you did REAL good here and should be very proud. How about remembering THAT next time you want to organize a meth regatta, run around saying "Do you know who I am" or some other dumb shit like that ;)

 

 

 

I'll scan it in when I get home if you all want to see it.

Read the article and SA is pretty prominent in its sources. Finally some good news.

SA did some good things in the Clear Lake debacle along with Lat 38 and the local San Francisco ABC affiliate and some other folks. Dinius was acquitted, then DA Hopkins and Sheriff Mitchell lost the next election.  I don't know what the status of Dinius's lawsuit against CL is, but I hope he takes them to the cleaners. And Deputy Sheriff Perdock, the man who caused the tragedy, never got as much as a traffic ticket and the last I heard got appointed to a government job again.  KIS, please scan the article and post it here.

We spent a lot of time on the phone with the Sheriff's office and Dinius's legal team.  Even got a personal thanks from him after the trial.

 

That said, it was all you guys who lit the fire under our asses and did all the research that allowed us to keep the pressure on via front page traffic and Facebook.



Would love to see a scanned article if anyone has the time.

Lets re-phrase that to the SA Community. As I remember many of the Forum users did lots of foot work.

 

Clean has already capitulated being an investigative reporter, so we know he is only capable writing on things the he likes or gives his name exposure.

 

and Scot only regurgitates what people send him with a sprinkling of his nonsense.

 

It is the Community that matters.

 

The needs of the many out weigh the needs of the one.

About two years ago something similar happened on the South River near Annapolis Maryland. A powerboat ran over a sailboat at night, I believe causing injuries. The police found the sailor to be at fault because he "turned in front of" the powerboat. Apparently, the police based their report on what the powerboater said, After the initial report in local press I have been unable to find any information of subsequent findings or investigations. Does anyone here know any further about this?

From Beth:

"If you want to share this link, it goes to the online version of the current story: http://www.boatus.co...small-stuff.asp

Ive also reposted the original story and the followup with Dinius attoreny on the page for the July issue: http://www.boatus.co...ine/default.asp

Tell them that Paige Kaneb, one of the attorneys in the original case and still involved today, sent her thanks to all of them."
