  • Update to AL amber alert: Mother held as suspect in 5-year-old's death

    12/06/2006 10:58:56 AM PST · 8 of 9
    armyavonlady to AUJenn

    If the local news is to be believed, it was the Amber Alert which led to the vehicle being located. The alert may have been a hoax but it did help law enforcement officers even though the child was already dead.

    I have a difficult time being nonjudgmental of people who kill children. I don't care what drugs you're on or what mental health issues you have on your plate. Murder is murder. I know that isn't very open minded; it's an emotional response.

  • Police: Car in School Bus Crash Had Faulty Steering

    There's been some talk of litigation but I hope it doesn't come to that, naive as that may sound. The bus service was contracted, the school district no doubt has immunities under the law and I suspect it would be hard to argue that the accident was reasonably foreseeable by anyone.

    Time will tell. Alabama law allows plaintiffs' lawyers to advertise on TV so they're easy to find.

    Yes, back on topic. Do you mean annual vehicle inspections of privately owned vehicles? If I understood you correctly, the answer to that would be no.

    As unfortunate as this finding is, since there was early talk of horseplay on the part of the car driver, at least there was a mechanical reason for the collision. I'm not saying it was unavoidable but the young driver of the car may have been ill equipped to handle a sudden loss of steering capability.

    I'm not personally in school law but I'm about fifty feet away from the guy who has represented the district for years. I know there will be emotional pleas for greater safety but in the end, people will have to admit that the odds of this happening again are incredibly remote.

    I feel for the students, their families and the emergency personnel. As I wrote earlier, a woman in our building lost her daughter (in parentis) and her heart must surely be broken.

    The lack of structural damage to the vehicle is quite amazing, considering the distance it fell. I'll be curious to learn how parents and the school board deal with this. I believe there will be a demand for belts in the buses. How the school district will react will remain to be seen. I say this in a legal context. Let's just say I see counsel for the district at least a dozen times a day.

    Thank goodness more children didn't die. May the justice system deal harshly with the individual whose acts led to the accident.

    This occurred less than a mile from where I work. One of the fatalities, Nichole Ford, was shot in the face by her boyfried two years ago and lived to tell the tale. Her grandmother, who raised her, works in our building. She was always talking about how proud she was. Nichole was going to be the first in the family to get to college.

    Should the investigation show that the accident was caused because a vehicle "cut off" the bus, I truly hope Huntsville's finest can find the SOB.

    Our community is in shock whether we knew the children and their families or not.

I may buy it if it comes out on DVD so I can watch it in the privacy of my own home and fall apart all over again without an audience and while affording the subject matter the respect it deserves.

  • Police fatally shoot pedestrian on Interstate 5 in Carlsbad

    armyavonlady to TheOracleAtLilac

    At the risk of trying to communicate with someone who is predisposed to think law enforcement has nothing better to do than stand around and get paid to do nothing:

    In those three extra hours, they can:
    collect physical evidence
    collect testimonial evidence
    identify witnesses
    take measurements
    take photographs
    secure the scene to ensure it is safe for the general public

    and those are just for starters.

    As a taxpayer, I would think you'd be interested in law enforcement doing all they can to gather information and evidence while the scene is fresh, not to mention ensuring your safety, so that less taxpayer funds are spent on defending a civil suit arising from the incident. Many agencies and muncipalities are insured. Others are self-insured. Regardless, thousands of dollars of YOUR money are spend defending suits brought by incidents just like this.

    If you're so outraged at how long you have to wait, it might be worth your energy to find out how much money is spent in your immediate area defending civil suits against law enforcement officers who are simply doing their jobs. Then you'd really be outraged.

    Well said. I can't count the number of excessive force suits I've dealt with defending, whether they involved simple injuries or deaths. The more homework done at the scene, the better the agency/municipality is able to defend these incessant civil suits which are inevitably filed.

    Make it harder for people to sue and maybe the inconvenience to the general public wouldn't be as great.

    Being the vet that I am, I always wondered why civilian law enforcement types don't shoot to injure/disable. Once I began working in civilian law in defense of cops, I learned that's not what they're taught. Each state has it's own standards. In my state ('Bama), cops are taught to defend themselves when it's an me v. him situation. If the person keeps coming, keep firing until the magazine is empty.

    Sounds like his boss made a stupid move (or defense counsel lacked adequate skills.)

We ended up winning because a federal judge agreed that his diabetes was not a physical disability which substanitally limited a major life activity.

    I'll be curious to learn what comes of the hearings, but they still won't tell me as Jane Q. Public if she can handle the job. This is a serious oversimplification, but many an employer faced with a problem employee who just can't cut it would no doubt profess that the person had a great resume and interviewed well. Point being, with a wild card, you don't know if the person can handle the job or not - male, female, purple, blue or green.

    As someone who works with the law every day (and must live and die by what the Supremes have to say), I must agree that there had to be better candidates out there somewhere, regardless of what the hearings reveal. It's one thing to practice law. It's yet another to sit on the bench either at the Federal District court level or the appellate level and have to write opinions which will be preserved for all time in the United States Reports.

    I am pro-cop by nature (since I deal with defending them in civil actions), but not this time. Based on the video I saw, these guys were, shall we say, "outside the line and scope" of their duties. I've never seen those head blows in any use of force training I've watched or participated in. And frustration is no excuse for this type of behavior. If they're that stressed by the job, they should find another line of employment which doesn't include impact weapons.

Although they believe parts of the city will be rebuilt and will be safer, their decision is due, in part, to lack of faith in local and state leaders like this idiot.

    This particular case had nothing to do with porn. It had to do with enforcing the terms of an earlier legal action related to his access to legal materials. Which should be a clear indicator that this inmate spends lotso time suing people. Nothin' better to do and nothin' but time on his hands.

    I, too, can't believe any respectible counsel even took this case. Wanna know how much the judgment was in favor of the prisoner? Twenty-one dollars. No joke.

    When we deal with these kinds of suits, the inmates always represent themselves because most attorneys have better things to do with their time. Inmates and prisoners do not have a right to have counsel appointed in civil suits, by the way. This one was different because of the earlier case I mentioned and that fact that the terms of the earlier case were being enforced.

    I had a suit by an inmate once who claimed we violated his constitutional rights to practice his religion as a Lakota Indian. And then there was the guy who said we beat him up because he mishandled cheese in the kitchen...

    The Boston Globe has its facts all wrong.

    He originally sued to get access to legal materials in a law library, not acess to porn. He reached a written agreement in the original suit. The terms of the agreement stated that if he had to take further legal action to enforce the agreement, his counsel would be entitled to reasonable attorneys fees and costs.

    Don't get me wrong - I hate inmate suits and am on the side of defending them on an ongoing basis.

    The Boston Globe has given this articel an inflammatory title and mis-stated the facts to get people all bent out of shape.

    My question would be whether or not the policies even differentiate between "flooding" and "storm surge" in the definitions/exclusions language.

    She should be criminally charged. As the Governor (and I use that title loosely as it applies to her), she's no doubt absolutely immune from civil suits which is a travesty.

    It would never happen, but I liked the thought. They must realize how unfit for public service they are and how many people have died as a result of their acts and omissions. In the event that they are, in fact, as clueless as they seem, many months of public service dealing with those affected might make them understand.

    Good question. During a time of crisis, anything is doable, but the local authorities (mayor and governor) have to tell the feds what they need. LTG Horne won't just have his troops start removing people without having been given an order to do so by the CINC (the Prez).

    Someone feel free to correct me if I'm way off base here, but it could go like this: the mayor and the governor (who should both start looking for new jobs where they can't hurt anyone) call the Pres and request that the troops help. G.W. consults with his people, then issues an order to Horne to get 'er done because there aren't enough law enforcement types around to do the job and it would take too long to get cops from all over the country to perform what is a state function.

    The military won't participate because this is a law enforcement function. I'm afraid many people don't understand what authority the military has (or lacks) to do things like this. Just like the military can only shoot in self-defense, the soldiers don't have the authority to remove people.

    Along the lines of "adopting" a family: odds are that if you ask around (friends, family, contacts) you'll run across someone who knows someone who needs help.

    A secretary where I work in Huntsville, Alabama, is originally from New Orleans. Her extended family of 12 is en route to Huntsville from Austin, TX (the only place they could find shelter when they evacuated). Our office is beginning to get together donations to help support them for the long haul, as they will no doubt be displaced for months if not permanently. I shared this info with my folks (in San Diego) who are contributing to the effort and who will no doubt tell people they know. This allows their contribution to be more personal. They know exactly where the money will go.

    Point of all this babble is that if you ask around, you can probably do something to help more directly. If you want to help and either don't know how or if you became disillusioned with the Red Cross after 9/11, drop me a FReepmail and I'll let you know how you can help the extended family we'll be supporting.

    Very interesting read. I particularly liked the end:

    "Finally, I think one must deny to anyone the right to ventriloquize the dead. Casey Sheehan joined up as a responsible adult volunteer. Are we so sure that he would have wanted to see his mother acquiring "a knack for P.R." and announcing that he was killed in a war for a Jewish cabal? This is just as objectionable, on logical as well as moral grounds, as the old pro-war argument that the dead "must not have died in vain." I distrust anyone who claims to speak for the fallen, and I distrust even more the hysterical noncombatants who exploit the grief of those who have to bury them."

    I won't say anything negative about this woman, although I may think it really, really loudly in my brain.

    I just hope time will bring her heart back to what's most important and she'll leave the podium in her past.

    Perfect example. Don't know the score in other states, but officers in our state are taught what is essentially a shoot 'til they drop scenario. If the officer fears for his/her life, they shoot until the suspect drops the weapon and/or drops to the floor and/or the magazine is empty. Kind of a "me or him" argument to justify the use of force.

    Grieving families have little sympathy for the fact that the suspect opened the can of whoop _ss and tend to argue that some lesser type of force should be used.

    Just sharing what I know from the realities of the legal world I deal with every day. I have an active case where the suspect shot first, refused to drop his weapon and ended up being hit with multiple rounds. His widow has now sued.

    Don't be surprised if the family of the dead "suspect" files a civil suit for excessive use of force. I know he "started it," so to speak, but suits over events like this are not uncommon.

    Our imperfect justice system at work.

    I plan to watch it even though I have no clue if there will be a "slant" to it. Most programs I've seen like this that were broadcast on NG were quite neutral.

    On a related note of interest, the Discovery Channel will air a program on the anniversary of 9/11 called "The Flight That Fought Back," which will detail what happened (to the extent its known) on Flight 93. Could be interesting and I plan to catch that one also.
