Awesome Athens Clarke County Police! And I'm so glad this woman could dial 911 BEFORE she fell unconscious. I hope she's able to be saved.

There may be a clear difference on paper, but in real life just how is a difference drawn between the two? Are police officers trained to spot the difference?

Puzzled

"Webster appeared extremely nervous when the officer stopped him, and when the officer ran a computer check he learned there were two outstanding warrants for his arrest in Clarke County, police said."

Well, I guess the fact that he "appeared extremely nervous" helps to draw a conclusion.

Such a shame natural causes preceded his ultimate punishment.

I'm torn here. On the one hand, she totally ignored the loss prevention officer's warning NOT to move her son after she ran him over. On the other, she's sitting in jail undoubtedly feeling all types of guilt and fear over this tragic situation. Yes, she brought it on herself, but what does law enforcement gain by not allowing her a chance to sit vigil by his side (perhaps even express her deepest remorse and sorrow) to her potentially dying son? She was very wrong here, but fear just 100% took over. I'm just convinced she never meant to intentionally hurt her son.

However, after all this is over and she's serving her time, (And yes she deserves prison time), I hope this serves as a public service announcement to think before you try to steal. Crying

@Watchman: I'm with you on this one. As I was reading that plea deal part, I was thinking it was supposed to be the other way around. As in drop the lesser charge(Drunk and plead to the most serious. Guess I was way off base.

I know this woman. Unfortunately, she is a crack-addicted schizophrenic who hardly takes her meds because she says she "doesn't need them." I happened to be in her presence about eight years ago when she alleged that government higher ups were on top of phone poles listening to everything below. Bless her heart. I really hope she gets and ACCEPTS the help she truly and so desperately needs.... Sad

Perhaps a little exaggeration on the $600 part? If she lives in Oak Hill, then surely she knows thuggin' and theivin' is a part of life there. Who in their right mind would leave $600 in the in THAT neighborhood??? Just saying...

EVERYONE knows a motorist is bound by law to come to a COMPLETE stop whenever a school bus starts to slow down to let kids on and off it. And so now, as a result of being ignorant of the law (purposefully or not), a child has been unnecessarily injured. Jeeeeeeeeze Louise people! We have GOT to do better. Dang!!! Angry

    Blog: Watching movies by myself

    Summary:  I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. 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
