There billdog goes again deciding what "minor little infractions" the police should enforce. The possession of marijuana law is in the same book as the stop sign infraction. Should the police ignore the stop sign infraction too as to not "inconvenience" the court with that ticket? Let's just erase all misdemeanor laws altogether and have the police just enforce felonies then.

A MINOR misdemeanor in the state of Ohio is a max fine of $150. And you're right. Let's not enforce any laws that you see as trivial. We'll take a poll of the city and see which laws the citizens do want and do not want enforced. Let's throw that book called the Ohio Revised Code out the window.
It's not about the kid with the small bag of marijuana. It's about sending a message that laws will be enforced in Campbell. They haven't been in a long time under the previous chief well Campbell finally has a chief that wants to work. Let them work. And as far as the kid goes maybe he should've made a better decision about driving around with marijuana in his vehicle. Maybe he IS the trafficker and that was all that was left after his deliveries. Boohoo for him that he has a record. Make better decisions in life.

“We need experts to come in and look at it and see what the problem is and see if it can be corrected.”
You're obviously an idiot then. Its because these kids are babied these days. I agree with "Pyroc". Kids need beat today plain and simple. The soft approach obviously does not work. "Walter" also makes a valid point. It starts at home. How do you expect the teachers to raise a kid or 1. doesn't know any better and 2. doesn't care because neither of those values have been instilled in the kid.
My do responds well to a shiock collar. Maybe give that a try.

I'm not affiliated with either side of the argument my point was that when you point a finger at someone there's fingers pointing back at you. Ya, Perry just decided to live with his aunt and uncle, that's what kids do all the time. Give me a break. And I wasn't discrediting his ability, he was a key player in winning that title, however with the line he had it wouldn't of happened.

Comment #8 by "pizzaman" is the best comment on here. Pete Perry from LOWELLVILLE while living in LOWELLVILLE won a state title for Poland in football in 1999. Enough said.
As far as the coach from Poland goes most successful coaches aren't always liked by everyone. They have a winning record because they tend to play the kids that can win, not the "everyone should play" mentaility. When I was in high school I played football. I remember a lot of angry parents because our coach wasn't being "fair" to their child. Well, their child wasn't good. You can't just play a kid because he's on the team. You need to send teh message that life isn't fair and that you have to work for what you want. That message is being instilled by these successfule coaches.
And by the way I'm not from Poland. And regarding the 99 Poland state title in football give credit where credit was due. Perry wasn't that great his line was. He was good, but not great.

"and our administration is committed to ensuring every New Yorker who seeks to take on this heroic role has a fair opportunity to join the ranks," de Blasio said in a statement."
They do. Its called a civil service exam that needs to be passed in order to be considered for employment. And if you don't place in the top percentage I don't want to hear anyone bich. Its not acceptable to consider someone who placed 191 on the list over someone who placed 4th just because of the color of one's skin. THAT would be discrimination but we never look at it that way huh?
Its simple. The most qualified. Give a test, those who score in the top spots get considered. Easy don't you think?
