[quote]I'm guessing if they were paid well, the cops wouldn't be jumping to other agencies.[/quote]
So, if that's the case, then the premise that NOLA just needs state police until the city can complete a few more police academies doesn't ring true. Does the city expect to retain those new office...

[quote]I don't know about the meaning of "a lot" in this instance, but I've been told in the past that NOPD loses quite a few officers every year to other agencies.
They supposedly have a pretty good training academy, so once an officer gets out and get some experience, the other agencies in the a...

WBRZ news managed to capture some insightful public comments on what CATS has done with their new tax revenue.
Sorry for the obnoxious ad at the start of the video. But then skip to 0:50, 1:20 and 1:35 for the best parts of the story. Apparently the bus system "have gone from worse to worse-ER"...

[quote]Libraries do more than just rent books to customers.[/quote]
And this is why I have a problem with today's libraries. Cities like BR pass taxes based on the premise that books and other reference materials are essential and that the public should have free access to them. I agree with th...

I carry a flat ground Endura and it is by far my favorite of any knife I have ever owned. Easy to open and close with one hand. Holds a super sharp edge that's easy to touch up on a Spyderco sharpener. I'm sure that some of the higher priced knives might even be more impressive, but for an EDC, I...

Insane alcoholic, hearing voices, screaming randomly, assaulting innocent strangers, flaunting weird obsessions....
