Planning commissioners hold off on Prince Avenue decision for further analysis

I know where they could easily find some extra cash; I think our city manager and attorney are expecting larger W-2s this year

Richt: Atkins won't lose playing time over driver's license arrest

@Dawgbreath:

Never said it did. Suspended licenses fall under 40-5-121.

An "instructional permit" is not a driver's license--the courts have been very clear on this.

Have you seen Al lately? I saw him at LaGuardia Tuesday--he's emaciated! What happened to the rotund dope dealer we all loved to hate?

Police: Gunman killed 6 in Santa Monica shootings

I think the problem lies in the lack of regulation of college campuses. These school shootings would stop if we turned all of our schools in to section 8 housing. Then the headline would read "Business as Usual at Santa Monica Bluffs Community."

People barred from locations

The problem is when they get to court for the subsequent criminal trespass charge after returning. Our lib judges reduce the criminal trespass to "failure to stop at red light" then let them out. Waste of time

4 Ga. youth lockups among worst for sex assaults

So are you guys gonna kiss or not? You're both about as passive aggressive as the ppl that hide behind Facebook and talk about how "you know who" scorned them. I'm also a bada$$ when I hide behind my laptop

Richt: Atkins won't lose playing time over driver's license arrest

You can be taken to jail for anything for which you've been given a citation. When you sign a citation on the side of the road you're essentially "bonding" yourself out--with your signature.

GA code 40-5-20
Same code that locks up illegal immigrants with no tiennes licencia

Ga. cities crack down on false alarms

@klopfelter:

Your residential burglar alarm falsely activates in the middle of the night because your back door wasn't secured and blew open from wind (or whatever). Responding cops find the open door and enter your residence to "clear" it. You hear the cops in your house and come downstairs with your pistol and shoot the burglar/cop.

Or:

A bank's silent holdup alarm activates (falsely again) and responding cops get in a wreck while responding to a false alarm. Or the cop gets in a wreck with your daughter and kills her.

Annoyed with ankle monitor's 'beeping,' accused Athens armed robber cuts it off

I love when idiots make bold statements about "making a hero" out of a cop. This is gold for law enforcement civil liability purposes. The next time a cop has to fight with Hancock and knocks his teeth out, we have documented proof of his violence toward LEOs

NRA calls for armed police officer in every school

We can't do a general sweep of the country and remove all guns in order to create a sterile, airport-like environment. That being the case, making guns illegal will not keep the bad guys from getting them. Look at cocaine and meth--both are illegal yet Ken Mauldin has the opportunity to plea down those cases everyday.

What about blunt objects? Or chocolate cake? Both of these kill people--probably more than guns do.

Ga. sheriff's deputy accidentally shoots himself

I've always thought 21 (though established by the state of GA) was mighty young for a P.O.S.T. certified officer/deputy. I hope this kid was a jailer and not on the road.

    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
