    Default Officer Basard's trial-Rd. 2

    Suspended Indianapolis police officer David Bisard is scheduled to appear in court today for a hearing to determine whether blood drawn from him after a fatal accident in 2010 can be used against him at trial.
    Marion Superior Judge Grant Hawkins ruled May 31 that the disputed draw, which showed Bisard had been legally drunk, could not be used to try him on allegations of drunken driving.
    But Hawkins said it was possible the blood evidence might be admissible in trying to prove a lesser charge.
    The hearing is at 1:30 p.m. before Hawkins.
    Hawkins said the woman who took Bisard's blood at a medical facility wasn't among the professionals authorized to do so by state law, and it's unclear whether she was competent ..

    fellow officers reported Basard was drunk when he ran into 2 people killing them-he was cleared on this technicality and suspended with pay.Although the murder and DUI charges were thrown out they are trying to find him guilty of a lesser charge .
    You know, I think I would rather be a man than a god . We don't need anyone to believe in us. We just keep going anyhow. It's what we do.

    Isn't "suspended with pay" basically just a vacation that doesn't count towards your vacation days? I'd love to be suspended with pay.

    This is a follow up to the story I posted months ago .Basard was off duty , drunk , and responded to a call from and promptly plowed his cruiser into some civilians . arrested for DUI and murder he avoided both on a technicality . The FBI was called in to handlethe case yet the DA through the case out .
    suspended with pay is very light for vehicular manslaughter .

    No sh*t it's light. Heck, suspended WITH PAY is light for showing up late for work. It ain't what you know, it's who you know.
