re: Seems to be a conflict of interest for the Maryland prosecutor - BigJim
Not good, but worse case scenario she tries REALLY hard to convict them. That's sort of her job. Now if the defense attorney had a link to the family, that would be a different story (or the judge)....

re: How will inner cities continue to attract future police officers? - BigJim
[quote]Easy. We will pay you a fair wage and benefits but you must live in the community. I'd like to see an experiment where we put up and then when its done one side will have to shut up. Find a smaller "inner city" area and put a big monetary infusion (take it from foreign aid). Refurbish and...

re: How will inner cities continue to attract future police officers? - BigJim
[quote]What exactly is the argument here? If white cops can't kill indiscriminately they'll stop being cops? Supply and demand will always govern employment.[/quote] Well, I don't know what the OP's concern is, but I expressed mine above. Put more succinctly, efforts to crack down on b...

re: Are the other state schools in LA facing the same cuts as LSU? - BigJim
[quote]Jim, Why the big reduction in self-generated revenues???[/quote] First of all, damn, nice catch! :bow: I don't really know the details off the top of my head. It has to do with the Shreveport medical school legacy costs. Those expenses are getting moved else and the associated r...

re: Are the other state schools in LA facing the same cuts as LSU? - BigJim
1. No chance they close smaller schools. I just don't see that happening. 2. LSU is actually the least affected by budget cuts since they can lean on tuition more heavily (and have more federal grants and raise more in donations and get athletics funds, etc). That isn't to say they aren't getti...

re: Inner City Development/Investment Paradox - BigJim

re: New Orleans May 2 Ballot - BigJim
[quote]And more cops? For what? So they can NOT investigate child abuse?[/quote] Looks like it is going to jails. Please support this, I am all for sentencing reforms, but you should never have to release someone because you don't have space. And the NO jails really seem like they need th...

re: EPA Administrator makes appeal at X-rated music festival - BigJim
The title is misleading (and I know you just took it from the original article). X-rated makes me think porn stars were doing it on stage. This was a music festival that had some rappers using naughty language. ...

re: Killing The Motion Picture Tax Credit Is Going To Be Nightmarishly Difficult - BigJim
[quote]BigJim it was people like you that made this crap possible. Going along with the naive idiocy of "we are investing in an industry." [/quote] I am still OK with it if they reform it. There is a lot they can do to make it a sustainable program. But since they cannot even put on a decent ca...
