@SilencedBlue15:

I retired from active duty and now teach college. I also conduct traffic safety research and write federal traffic safety grants. I am on the Board of Directors and I am the law enforcement representative for the Best Highway Safety Practices Institute. So, I guess I am active at age 70.  What I hope to do is light a fire under younger officers to find a better way to do their job. We (law enforcement) are more effective when citizens display voluntary compliance with the law. Developing effective traffic safety or public safety campaigns is very difficult. I know this for a fact because I've been involved in several. I never considered myself an expert although I have been deemed to be a qualified "expert" in Court. A lot of people out there are smarter than me. But, I have been successful. Thanks for asking Blue.

I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.

    No cartoons on racism

    As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
