What a great way to unify rival gangs. Give them a bigger threat and target. This action puts individual officers at more risk because the gang members will be looking to get revenge for this show of force. Police officers need to learn the difference between military occupation and police work.
Just more CYA from a federal bureaucrat.
Yes because a show of force worked so well in WACO...Idiots they are really lucky they didn't spark something.
Agree @Angela Shelly. very vague report... Yes Boise Weekly, it is tragic...
Car crashes killed 33,561 people in 2012, the most recent year for which data is available, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Firearms killed 32,251 people in the United States in 2011, the most recent year for which the Centers for Disease Control has data.
Marijuana Deaths >> Zero
There always has to be "that guy" - The jerkoff asshat tool who has to trash stuff and ruin it for everyone. Hey folks, friends don't let friends be "that guy"
Before making judgement...What the article does not say is that the driver was going a good 60 miles under the limit on the interstate and the driver that hit him had someone in the passing lane and no view of the vehicle due to one in front of him until shortly before the accident. TRUELY TRAGIC for everyone.
Geez, who edits these stories? The phrase is, "All for naught."
I completed this training at the University of Idaho and I feel like it should be at least required for all students in the College of Education.
This is a fascinating snippet of history -- but aren't you referring to Mr. Drouillard's descendants, not his "ancestors"?
I guess the story was so fascinating that you didn't actually read it. The 10-city tour was cancelled due to lack of press interest.
Cory Drouillard needs to read his history. Sacagawea was not a guide, but an interpretress, knowing the Shoshone language; a woman with a baby meant it was not a war party, and she knew which plants were edible and which were medicinal, plus other things she had been taught as a child. George Drouillard was not a guide either, but could use sign language, and was a very good hunter. He was important to the Expedition, as were other members, and there have been a couple of well written books about him. Drouillard, also called by some "Drewyer", was half-French and half Shawnee.
21 years a student of LAW and what I've learned is that the adversarial system is not LAW, it is the system of the ADVERSARY, a system of WAR.
LAW is a HELP and a GUIDE, a TEACHER in word and by example in the ART of SELF-GOVERNMENT while HONORING the INDIVIDUAL FREEWILL SOVEREIGNTY of each and every BEING. This is the LAW of MERCY (self-government) and TRUTH (individual freewill sovereignty). LAW values ALL LIFE. To judge is to teach in word. Justice is to teach by example. Some interesting synonyms: Power and Authority, Mercy and Truth, Lion and Lamb, self-government and individual freewill sovereignty, HUMAN DIGNITY.
"Straight up, those mistakes will cost you some patrons. You should be fined more than 800, 000 dollars. The additional fine will be the patrons who are too uncomfortable to shop in your establishment."
What would the response from BPD have been if the occupants killed the home invaders?
Bad, and only way too obvious puns above.
What a load of crap.
She hit a Sheriff's vehicle AND a BPD vehicle? She needs to lose her license for a LONG time.
A battered women with two children discovers that her newly-ex-husband refuses to follow the divorce decree -- no 1/2 of the medical, splitting housewares -- nothing. Ever. She has $10K but has to buy a car, furniture, beds, bedding, dishes, towels, toys, clothes. Court action requires a $1,500 retainer and means more attorney fees (everything she had she sold to pay the $4K in fees the 1st time). 3 months later the kids need school supplies, so she takes a payday loan for $100. A week later one of the kids is running a high fever--$150 at the doc's office and $20 for a prescription. She pays the interest and tries to pay toward the principal but is told that she can only pay the interest unless she's paying the whole thing off. Another $20 a week later; $20 the week after. Because she’s earning $28K (pre-tax) she's "referred" to another lender who charges less interest but the minimum loan is $250. She uses it to pay off the $100 but now her interest is now $40 a week and – surprise – no partial principal payments allowed. The circle is vicious and predatory. And it needs to stop.
If that's a cell phone in his hand, he should be easy to find with the technology the police department have access to.
