Too bad it's not legal to have someone take him out back of the court house and beat the LIVING SH*T out of him within an inch of HIS life....and tell him that if he puts his hands on her again, IT WILL HAPPEN TO HIM AGAIN.
Oh well... it's a nice thought........

* Forget whether or not the Mayor is going to be convicted. Not what this article is about, and therefore irrelevant.
*Forget about patching potholes - not what this article is about, and therefore irrelevant.
*Forget about what Florida does - this is not Florida. They write their own laws. Ohio writes its own laws.
*Being in an economically challenged area does not excuse one from obeying law.
* If the speed limit is too low - feel free to avail yourselves of the Democratic process that we use in this country and work to have the law changed.
*Violating the speed limit because most of the other drivers around you are doing the same thing does not excuse you from obeying the law.
NOW - with regard to all of the RELEVENT objections - some folks on here have posted some VERY VALID arguments... and I totally AGREE with you.
* Not pulling the speeders over is a mistake, as the police will not catch criminals that otherwise may have been caught.
* The city should be able to show where the revenues generated by this program are going, etc.
* Anyone who wants to fight a citation in civil court and challenge the calibration and accuracy of the device, etc should do so - BY ALL MEANS. If the devices are proven to be inaccurate, then they MUST be taken out of service.
* In my state, there is a checkbox on the civil citation when it arrives in the mail which says "I dispute this citation because the vehicle was NOT in my custody when the violation was committed" - it then asks you to say who DID have the vehicle when the violation was committed. Seems fair enough to me.
* Two vehicles traveling side by side when the photo is snapped - sounds like a good case for a court battle, and a good probability of WINNING if there is no way to prove WHICH vehicle was speeding.
If anyone else has any more relevent arguments that actually pertain to news article shown above - please post them.

I have two words for Annie Gillam:

"......when vitally altered bills are secretly drafted and made law over the course of a single day, the students, parents, employees, and taxpayers of Ohio are not well served...."
When the school board, the academic distress commission, the teachers, the faculty, etc had YEARS to fix the busted school system and DIDN'T.... do you think the students, parents and taxpayers of Ohio WERE somehow "well served" !?!?!?!?
Also, I haven't looked up the dates, but did the Governor sign the bill the very same day it was drafted? If not, then it did not "become law in a single day". NO bill for a new state law actually becomes law until it is signed by the Governor.
Idiots.....all of them

Buy rental property. The economy and the stock market could go to hell in a hand basket tomorrow, but people would STILL have to have a place to live.....

The gun does nothing to put bad thoughs into good people's heads. Their own actions and the content of their character do that.
Criminals do not have legally purchased and registered firearms, 99% of the time. Taking guns away from law abiding citizens will NOT make anyone safer.... it will leave them defenseless and violate their right to keep and bear arms.
The right to keep and bear arms is plainly spelled out in the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America.
If you want to make it illegal for ordinary citizens to keep and bear arms, all you need to do is petition 2/3 of the congress to vote for another amendment to the Constitution, repealing this right granted under the Second Amendment.

Not belittling the death of her husband, that is very sad and very unfortunate - but one would think that his drug activities would also have been hard on her and the children, too......

Is anyone taking readings further upstream, before the creek enters the park? It would be good to know how much contamination is coming from sources outside the city and its sewer system.

Up to 100 grams (or up to five grams hashish). Ohio has decriminalized possession of small amounts of marijuana. Violations are considered minor misdemeanors, which incur a $150 fine but no jail time, and do not become part of the defendant’s criminal record.
