Lawyers support motorcycle ride for charity

Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Indianapolis attorneys and a law firm are among the sponsors and participants in a scenic motorcycle ride Saturday to benefit the children of Christel House, based in Indianapolis with locations around the world.

The Braking the Cycle Ride, 105 miles from Indianapolis to Nashville and back, is open to all riders. It starts with a registration and breakfast at 9 a.m. at the Christel House Academy, 2717 S. East St., Indianapolis. Registrations are accepted the morning of the event, but organizers encourage riders to pre-register by calling (317) 464-2030. The ride will start at 10 a.m., and is expected to end back in Indianapolis around noon with a lunch for participants.

The title sponsor is Hensley Legal Group. Sponsor 317 Ryders Motorcycle Club, including its vice president, Indianapolis attorney Jimmie “Tic Tac” McMillian, and his wife Tamara McMillian, also an attorney, will be there and have asked the legal community to support and participate in the ride. Last year’s event raised $10,000.

Funds raised by the ride – $25 per rider and $40 per rider and passenger, which includes a t-shirt, breakfast, and lunch – will help Christel House Academy break the cycle of poverty while giving its students a chance to be self-sustaining, productive members of society.

“Worldwide, over 3,000 children, 279 graduates, 1,500 parents and countless community members are benefiting from Christel House Programs,” according to the organization’s website. In addition to the Indianapolis charter school, Christel House has programs in India, Mexico, South Africa, Venezuela, and Serbia.

More information about the ride is on the website, www.brakingthecycleride.org. The brochure can be found here.

  1. All the lawyers involved in this don't add up to a hill of beans; mostly yes-men punching their tickets for future advancement. REMF types. Window dressing. Who in this mess was a real hero? the whistleblower that let the public know about the torture, whom the US sent to Jail. John Kyriakou. http://www.nytimes.com/2013/01/26/us/ex-officer-for-cia-is-sentenced-in-leak-case.html?_r=0 Now, considering that Torture is Illegal, considering that during Vietnam a soldier was court-martialed and imprisoned for waterboarding, why has the whistleblower gone to jail but none of the torturers have been held to account? It's amazing that Uncle Sam's sunk lower than Vietnam. But that's where we're at. An even more unjust and pointless war conducted in an even more bogus manner. this from npr: "On Jan. 21, 1968, The Washington Post ran a front-page photo of a U.S. soldier supervising the waterboarding of a captured North Vietnamese soldier. The caption said the technique induced "a flooding sense of suffocation and drowning, meant to make him talk." The picture led to an Army investigation and, two months later, the court martial of the soldier." Today, the US itself has become lawless.

  2. "Brain Damage" alright.... The lunatic is on the grass/ The lunatic is on the grass/ Remembering games and daisy chains and laughs/ Got to keep the loonies on the path.... The lunatic is in the hall/ The lunatics are in my hall/ The paper holds their folded faces to the floor/ And every day the paper boy brings more/ And if the dam breaks open many years too soon/ And if there is no room upon the hill/ And if your head explodes with dark forbodings too/ I'll see you on the dark side of the moon!!!

  3. It is amazing how selectively courts can read cases and how two very similar factpatterns can result in quite different renderings. I cited this very same argument in Brown v. Bowman, lost. I guess it is panel, panel, panel when one is on appeal. Sad thing is, I had Sykes. Same argument, she went the opposite. Her Rooker-Feldman jurisprudence is now decidedly unintelligible.

  4. November, 2014, I was charged with OWI/Endangering a person. I was not given a Breathalyzer test and the arresting officer did not believe that alcohol was in any way involved. I was self-overmedicated with prescription medications. I was taken to local hospital for blood draw to be sent to State Tox Lab. My attorney gave me a cookie-cutter plea which amounts to an ALCOHOL-related charge. Totally unacceptable!! HOW can I get my TOX report from the state lab???

  5. My mother got temporary guardianship of my children in 2012. my husband and I got divorced 2015 the judge ordered me to have full custody of all my children. Does this mean the temporary guardianship is over? I'm confused because my divorce papers say I have custody and he gets visits and i get to claim the kids every year on my taxes. So just wondered since I have in black and white that I have custody if I can go get my kids from my moms and not go to jail?
