Maybe u need to learn how to get ur facts straight before you go posting things that aren't correct. That is my grandmother that you are going into such graphic detail about.
The point is that if you decide to bike on a busy road, don't be surprised if you get ran over on that same busy road---Do you think it would be wise for a mother to walk with her baby stroller and her 14 month old child on the non-existent shoulder during rush hour? No? Then what makes you think its a bright Idea to ride a bike? Because you are going 17 mph faster than the walking mother?
Dead is dead------who's fault it is really doesn't matter-----
So I need to leave our country if I expect a logical complete street arrangement and equitable means of getting around? Healthy active transportation means healthier populace. If people drove everywhere that would certainly offset the occasional accident since an in active lifestyle is far more dangerous that cycling to get from A to B. You would prefer a polluted, congested, expensive, closed off, miserable, and poorly planned city? Luckily, more people want better than that. I am sorry your city did a poor job of adding bike lanes, perhaps it was a design flaw... but to be so obtuse about any-and-all bike inclusion in the scope of transportation? It really serves no one. It is sad.
You're an idiot. This is Brett Buzek. I stayed there and was in jail for three days before I went to court, never left and I did 72 hours of community service and paid 1100 in fines. which i was on a payment plan for. because at the time I was 22 years old and made 36k a year and had a daughter and wife at home. I was in a BUSINESS trip genius. Meaning my the BUSINESS I worked for paid for my flight, hotel etc, people make mistakes and need a little financial assistance sometimes. Get off your high horse. Dick.
Doubt the jury was reminded that technically he had the legal right to resist unlawful arrest, to whatever degree necessary, even using deadly force. Sounds like Bruce steen was planted to help steer the jury away from a technically fair trial being that it's a very likely possibility montgomery's actions were technically lawful.
Go back to Africa where you have existed for over 10,000 years and have never invented a damn thing. Still living in sh*t huts and eating animal dung. Zimbabwe threw out the only productive people in the country the White farmers and took their farms. Now the farms are desolate and non producing and Zimbabwe is on International welfare. Before those farmers feed the country and exported food. See any similarites? Non productive and on the government dole. I've got an idea, y'all want to be African-Americans why not just be Africans? You are all such geniuses go back to Africa (richest in resources in the world) and have your own country were there are no White people to bother you. Then you can build the great Black empire and show the world how great you are without the White man holding you down.
he is out again
Oh, good. Bikers have shown up to be hipsterish and condescending. I was hoping that would happen.
Remember the fat people in the movie Wall-E? You are the embodiment of those people, but you don't have a fancy hoverchair. Instead, you schlep your fat behind from the couch to the car to the officechair and wonder why *other* people are so stupid.
Is this the Rutgers study you are referring to?
The goal: Reduce dependence on foreign oil
The goal: Reduce green house gasses
The goal: Stem America's obesity epidemic
The goal: Reduce heart disease
The answer: Eliminate bike riders???? Really?
Not to mention the fact that the roads don't belong to just those financially able to purchase, maintain, repair, insure, and fuel a car. Some people have other needs for that $10,000 a year.
Hey highspeed; did you read the freakin article?
I am shocked by how much college costs today. Of course I went to a state two year institution after my high school college advisor told me "you're not college material" and then transfered to a an out of state university who took all my credits but never at the rates today's colleges charge. There would be no way I could have attended. It is sad that high school advisors are either clueless or biased that kids are robbed of a livelihood after schools rob citizens of their wallets in the name of education. States should ban teacher's unions because all they do is to insure teachers get benefits and the heck with students.
Tara - come on now honey. After Robert Wood was fired from CMPD he was hired by Cornelius. He was then fired from Cornelius because he was caught on video peeking into a woman's restroom at Harding High School. CMPD did the right thing by letting him go. Let's practice responsible reporting.
Why didn't you mention that she is the daughter of a police chief? I recalled that fact, verified it on google news. It seems germane to your column topic.
The problem is not DSS per se. The problem is that there is only ONE agency allowed to investigate ALL child abuse complaints. It is the monopoly that's the problem. DSS is the only allowed to take kids out of the home, to investigate child abuse claims, etc.
This is an unfair and inefficient monopoly. In times past, family members could handle this internally. Churches got involved, friends got involved without fear of reprisal from an all-powerful megaState and it's DSS arm.
@ West Headhunter: people at DSS do take their job seriously and do everything within our power to protect children. What exactly is it that YOU do to protect children? Make comments on an article written by an uninformed idiot?
I work in child protective services, I work really hard, everyday, to keep children safe. I do care about the children on my caseload- otherwise, I wouldn't have a graduate degree and continue to make peanuts. I stay in my job b/c I want to make a difference.
Tara is ignorant. It is so easy to sit on your self-righteous ass and point the finger at everyone else.
TS, you are Spot On! How in the world can this happen, do these people as DSS not take their job serous? I see no resean that the investigation should not turn onto those that knew this child was the victim of a monster(s) and simply did nothing to protect her. Are they not involved, I say YES and they should be charged along with the mother and boyfriend.
I sent e-mails to state reps and the gov about the Meck Dec article but I doubt they give a darn. All they care about are their egos not about protecting citizens. Cotham & Clodfleter two useless people just like DSS. Nothing will get done. How about illegal aliens getting licenses and living in NJ? The state ever do anything about that? Reps are uselss people and why we ever vote for any of them is besides me. Talk about a waste of energy and then if we don't vote we get criticized when we complain. Damned if you do and damned if you don't.
The standards of DSS must be made to move up a bar.....not just 'as long as the child has food and a roof over his head' .........emotional and health security MUST be included, even if a DSS worker can't oversee on a frequent basis, other services should be involved (Clinics, child care sources, etc.). These other services must be MANDATORY for the safety of our children
