Am I responsible for the Lane Jensen debacle?
I admit recruiting him to the 'cause' and setting him up with what he needed to get going but once he got going he didn't listen to me or anybody else. There were several things that he was doing that I vociferously objected to ( like texting the managers)but he pushed forward on his own.
And I do admit loving every single moment of Lane's blogging about Trimet. He was definitely the most entertaining Trimet blogger since people began blogging (in my opinion of course)
I think Lane got a bad deal in the end with the full fury of the police state coming down on him with misconstrued facts and wild assumptions of his future behavior. Its a condemnation of how our government really works and its not pretty. There is absolutely no justification for any of the actions of the state against Lane Jensen. This situation should have never ended up in criminal court, it was at the most a civil action
