Man who allegedly struck Athens parking enforcement officer indicted

I don't know about you, but when I put my car in reverse, I'm looking in the rear view mirror or over my shoulder the entire time. The PEO is looking directly at your tag and entering the characters into her portable citation unit.
[quote] Does a parking control officer have arrest powers, can they detain a person? [/quote]
She is an employee of the ADDA, nor a sworn officer.

Amazing you missed Kingston's deceptive ads. For example,

The ad failed miserably the scrutiny of fact checking:

I don't recall reading any critcal comments from you regarding Kingston's nasty ads, but perhaps I missed them and you could summarize what you said.

Hit the road, Jack. The polls missed it again. At least the next senator from Georgia will not be a career politician.

Actually, paying the county for protection isn't a bad idea. [/quote]
Who said anything about paying the county. I'm talking about individuals and associations contracting with private firms providing security patrols. It's already done in some Atlanta in-town neighboords. For example,

Just tell the residents to arm themselves and organize neighborhood watch programs. If someone wants more, the private sector should be able to provide it at a private cost.

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
