That IS great news for those in the Hall County area. I was happy when the Athens (Madison County) VA clinic opened, even though it's still a 90-mile round trip for me. Augusta, however, was 160 miles round trip.

[quote][b]Save our Republic[/b] -
A warrant for what? What judge signed the warrant? In Georgia, it is my understanding that no child under 13 can be charged for a criminal offense! Am I mistaken?
It's not a criminal offense, it's a "delinquent act" when it applies to a child. Even some offenses considered a crime when an adult are categorized as delinquent acts when committed by a juvenile (child).
Any Judge can sign a Juvenile warrant to place the child into custody for evaluation and intervention (treatment).posted @ Wednesday, January 9, 2013 - 10:01

That's legal here in Colorado (except for running the stop sign).
True. Possession and use by an adult in Colorado is now legal. Operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of even a LEGAL drug is NOT.
It's the same in all States. Just because you can legally possess and use a drug (i.e., Lortab, Vicodin, Oxycontin, Marijuana) doesn't mean you can take it and drive.posted @ Sunday, January 6, 2013 - 10:42
"Oconee Sheriff plans boycott" of Dana Safety Supply !
Really ? Choosing to consider other supply options for firearms is a boycott ?
I'm not particularly a proponent of gun control, mostly because, as somebody else mentioned, the "bad guys" aren't usually lining up at the gun shop counter filling out the dreaded yellow form. Law-abiding citizens do that. Careless law-abiding citizens arm the "bad guys".
Is it sensible (or even necessary) to own a semi-automatic assault-style weapon ? Don't know. I had a lot of fun popping off several repeat rounds at a target from time to time, but I'm not sure I could reasonably argue in favor of any other reason to have one that doesn't hinge on being a danger to someone else through some illegal activity. Still, I don't see much reasoning behind banning them entirely. There are a lot of people out there who own something just because they can and want to. No harm there.
Given that, I think it's ridiculous to term Berry's stand to be representative of a boycott. However, I also think it's irresponsible for Berry to take a public stand that would give that impression. It's all about appearances.posted @ Saturday, January 5, 2013 - 10:40

......., that money will be properly redirected to his victim.
Not so. It's entirely up to the person holding the money-judgment to execute the judgment, which can only be done after obtaining a FiFa (fieri facias).
Nothing is automatically re-directed to the judgment holder. It's a collection process that requires FINDING the assets, then properly executing a Sheriff's seizure (replevy) or a garnishment action (i.e., wages, bank accounts, etc).
Depending upon the size of any judgment, that alone could push him into bankruptcy BEFORE he gets a job, inherits Uncle Morris' fortune, or wins the lottery. By the way, you can file bankruptcy while you're in prison.
The only thing exempt from the bankruptcy (among other things) would be a Court Order for restitution. [523(a)(13) - U.S. Bankruptcy Code]posted @ Sunday, December 23, 2012 - 17:51
@zillybong: I couldn't agree more. Unfortunately, the insurance company (IF the idiot was insured) is limited to the level of coverage in the policy. They wouldn't be on the hook for any more than that.
The driver, on the other hand, could be exposed to whatever a jury / judge might assess in terms of loss to the victim. Sadly, although felony charges MIGHT be appropriate here, a conviction would severely limit the collectability of any money-judgment the victim might obtain. Consider time in prison, then the difficulty in obtaining viable employment with a felony conviction. That sort of limits the financial resources of the offender from which to pay any judgment.
Then of course, there's always bankruptcy. I've seen many cases where a civil judgment was the guiding force behind a bankruptcy. The civil judgment goes away.posted @ Sunday, December 23, 2012 - 09:31

. "Reeves served in the military around the time of the Korean War"
Reeves is 73, wouldn't he have been a little young to serve in the Korean War?
Yes. He would have been 14 years old when the war ENDED in 1953.
If he's 73 now, he would have been born in 1939 (roughly).
