If you inadvertently receive child porn then there is no criminal intent and no offense.
If someone email you child porn or mails it to you home, there is no crime.
BUT if you receive it and then re-send it, you have committed a crime.posted @ Wednesday, December 18, 2013 - 15:26

[quote][b]mpd0.59[/b] - Curious that these three establishments are not your typical college student bars. Perhaps it was to counter criticism that they were only targeting certain kinds of establishments.
Good point, there are many bars downtown that get most of their revenue almost exclusively from underage drinkers with a fake ID. All the bar has to do is turn away people who actually produce a real ID showing they are underage.....but every kid has a fake ID
The operatives use an actual ID that shows their underage. Only stupid bar tenders would serve to them.
The problem in this town is not the few bartenders who don't check ID's, the problem is the thousands of students who have high quality fake IDs which only a police officer could verify by running the DL # though their computer.
In many states, the bar is still liable for serving an underage drinker who uses a fake ID....and the bars use scanners to verify. In GA this is usually not the case and it would cripple the bar industry downtown if it were.posted @ Wednesday, December 18, 2013 - 11:45
Gwinnett School Police have had all of their school resources officers SWAT trained, with rifles, gas masks, body armor, etc.....since 1978...and they pay them a starting salary of almost 80k a year and require a masters degree.
To all those saying that rifles are overkill or they wont do any good. Wouldn't you rather have it there as an option than to be in a situation where you need it and don't have it?
Many of the school shooters in the past wore body armor....which stops most hand gun rounds, making an SRO's side arm not able to stop them.posted @ Wednesday, December 18, 2013 - 10:41
[quote][b]codeman10s[/b] - If he has nothing to hide, wouldn't he want to clear his name? Especially when it comes to re-election and increased transparency. I understand that some of this are personal records, but that's a side effect of being accused. Again, if he's cleared and cooperates, I see an almost guaranteed re-election.
Pretty much there are 2 city council people (one of whom is going to run against him for mayor) who are spending city money trying to dig up any dirt they can on him. Its all small town politics between just 3 people.
He is fighting a subpoena that some lawyer got to go through all his personal phone records. There is no criminal investigation.posted @ Wednesday, December 18, 2013 - 10:35

The lottery is a tax on the stupid and poor which benefits the college kid, most of whom would have attended college anyways, as is the case with most UGA students.
The lottery data overwhelming shows the poorest counties funding just a few of the largest counties in metro Atlanta with the highest college bound numbers.posted @ Tuesday, December 17, 2013 - 12:05
Because this was an anonymous tip: 'Mom' didn't have to leave her name.
Absolutely any woman could have made that call.
Police states DEPEND on this sort of activity. That's my beef. I don't want to live in a police state. Do you?
haha, a law abiding citizens calls a public servant to serve a lawfully issued criminal arrest warrant by a lawfully elected judge on a wanted felon who was evading justice.
How is this a police state?posted @ Tuesday, December 17, 2013 - 11:34

[quote][b]hang em high[/b] - While most people I'm sure find that kind of talk offensive...what exactly are the cops "probing"? As far as I know the 1st amendment doesn't stop protecting free speech just because it hurts people's feelings...the only thing I could see is the hijacking of someone's FB page...but really, since when is it illegal to do that? Could I press charges against the friend who gets on my computer and changes my status to something funny? It's really such a trivial thing...if you want people to quit calling you names, stop crying and just ignore it...
It is a felony to hack into someones computer or online profile, it is a felony to steal someones identity and create a profile with their likeness.
Simply being a racist and posting racial slurs IS NOT illegal, but stealing someones identity and computer trespassing is a crime.posted @ Monday, December 16, 2013 - 16:49

His clerk made a clerical error on a few expense reports. As soon as he heard about them he immediate informed the accounting office and repaid the monies which were small amounts to begin with.
No evidence of criminal intent or a cover-up. Not checking his clerks work before signing the expense report was his only mistake.posted @ Monday, December 16, 2013 - 10:45

Its all part of class envy which is what the lefties use to control how people think.
Its a private college, they can pay their people whatever they want, if you don't like it then don't send your kid their. Pretty simple. Yet the left wants a government official to try and tell a PRIVATE institution what it can pay someone.posted @ Monday, December 16, 2013 - 10:32

[quote][b]Humbucker bob[/b] - The police not obeying traffic regulations is the rule not the exception. [/quote]
Georgia law specifically exempts law enforcement officers and anyone operating an emergency vehicle from wearing safety belts during performance of their duties. This would include cops, paramedics, firemen, etc.
O.C.G.A. § 40-8-76.1 (C) (9).
So a cop not wearing his safety belt is not breaking any law in GA. But most agencies have policies requiring their use when practical.posted @ Thursday, December 12, 2013 - 11:34

[quote][b]Fred III[/b] - The obvious original intent of the law's restriction was to discourage criminals from reaping benefits of victimhood. Sheriff shoots the gun out of your hand when you're robbing the bank, and you can no longer play the cello, so you get $ from victim compensation fund etc.
If a prostitute gets beaten during the performance of his or her illegal duties, there could be some argument for quid pro quo. Like if it's Kitten With a Whip Night and there's some backlash to the lashing...(OK enough of that. This IS a family-oriented bitter-dissent forum.)
Anyway, the Oldest Profession should not provide carte blanche protection for its violent critics. You hurt some honeypot, regardless of whatever business card they're carrying, you better have a d----d fine reason, or the law should burn you if the pimp doesn't get you first. Even in California.

Just because some girl is turning tricks, does not mean she is any less of a victim if someone stabs, beats, rapes, her, etc.
The victims compensation fund only covers physical injury from serious violent crime, its not welfare.posted @ Thursday, December 12, 2013 - 10:39
