Have the recent GM recalls stopped you from purchasing a GM vehicle?

According to Edmunds.com, there are 71 production vehicles manufactured by GM. 57 of them have recalls. Had a 2005 Colbalt that was a complete piece of garbage. Will never buy a GM new or used again.

After drive-by shooting, victims are hazy about "Smokey"

And the cycle of hoodratdom continues. "Victims" refuse to assist police, despite the fact someone shot at a vehicle carrying her kids. They get what they deserve.

One dead, another on life support after Struthers mom-son shootings

Um, I think it would be hard for her to kill her kids *after* she's killed herself. But I'm not a police officer, so I could be wrong.

Tough guy with heart retires after 33 years with Trumbull sheriff

Beat wishes, Pete. Your friendship to me when you were a deputy and I was a kid and Red Cross volunteer at your training events was very impressionable to a kid growing up in the projects. Thank you and enjoy retirement.

2 charged with OVI after 588 vehicles pass through Austintown checkpoint

"Federal Grant Funds" = Taxes. Plain and simple.

And really, 4th Amendment rights? Forget about it.

Complete waste of time. This is more of a 'you look suspicious, let's see your papers' event than an OVI Checkpoint. There are statistically more people arrested at these for things other than OVI.

So everything was the #1 story?

Judge says driving without a license is No. 1 crime in Youngstown

So let me get this straight. A JUDGE in YOUNGSTOWN says “The No. 1 crime in the city of Youngstown is people driving without a license, absolutely without a doubt,” and it happens at least 10 times a day.

An INSURANCE AGENT in YOUNGSTOWN estimates 45 percent of drivers have no license and/or no insurance.

The POLICE CHIEF calls driving without a license and/or insurance "an epidemic."

Yet we have OVI checkpoints that have an average rate of return on OVI arrests all summer long rather than a License / Insurance Checkpoints during the day, say like from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.? Clearly there's a serious lack of focus on something that, based on a judge, police chief and insurance agent is CLEARLY a bigger problem than OVI Checkpoints, which don't work:

An OVI checkpoint in Austintown, Ohio, on June 15, 2013, had 588 cars pass through. There were two DUI arrests and six other citations issued. That's a 0.34 rate of return on DUI, and a 1.36% arrest rate for ALL charges. Also on June 15th, there was a DUI checkpoint in Franklin County, north of Columbus, which was conducted by the Ohio State Highway Patrol, the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office, Hilliard and Dublin police departments. In 2009, Franklin County ranked first in DUI arrests in Ohio, so you'd think a bigger city, bigger area, bigger checkpoint and that history would give significantly greater odds, right?

Wrong.

In a six-hour period, a total of 814 cars went through the checkpoint. There were 332 cars that were checked, 39 that were diverted for issues. A whopping four people were arrested for DUI. Four.

That's a 0.49140049140049 percentage for DUI arrests.
