Here are the USDOT Numbers for 2016(Most recent numbers tallied) : 37,461 traffic related fatalities in the US. 10,497 were alcohol/drug related. 26,964 fatalities that were not. You are more likely to be killed by a sober driver that was speeding or distracted. The numbers are there for everyone to see. Put down the phone and do not speed no matter how late you are. And, of course, Don't drive under the influence. The life you save may be your own or a close family member. Saving the life of a complete stranger is a good thing too. https://www.nhtsa.gov/press-releases/...

He was not the photographer. Askia Muhammad was the person that took that picture in 2005 when Obama was a Senator. https://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewir...

Is This Just a "Joke" Too? https://theguardiansofdemocracy.com/n... Last time I checked, inciting violence against citizens of this country is a crime.

Well, the facts are not out in plain sight otherwise , I would have my answers. I do know that the system is complicated and does not favor the poor or uneducated as is the problem with most of the US Government procedures.. If you feel like Doing any "Heavy Lifting" by shedding light on any of this, you would be doing a Public Service. The rules are complicated by design. Once someone enters the judicial arena as an offender, it is almost impossible to ever get out. I see that as a problem. Our Government Officials seem to think this is a Solution. I guess I am not Bright enough to figure it out for myself and I do know people that hold Law Degrees that have a hard time figuring it out and that is their Profession. Any info would be most appreciated.

I try not to be a person that has to experience bond requirements at the Douglas County jail, Thank You very much. Since you must be a county employee or a lawyer, please feel free to enlighten all of us law abiding citizens on what people go through when arrested by Douglas county authorities. We are curious and have a right to know, as property owners and tax payers, where our money does go.

Pretrial Release Conditions"Law allows release on an unsecured appearance bond. Common conditions of release include: commercial surety, cash deposit, property bond, supervision and additional requirements. Electronic monitoring is authorized for any defendant eligible for pretrial release. (§ 22-2802; § 22-2806)" I am going out on a limb here and saying it is possible some cannot meet all of these requirements based on economic conditions. Supervision and electronic monitoring cost money. Money that some do not have. So, A cash deposit is probably out of the question too.

Have you also considered that the threshold for being put in jail has gone down in recent years? Also, if you are poor and cannot pay the bail, you stay in jail until your trial. The combination of economics and stiffer penalties has something to do with it. Overall, the crime rate is down nationwide. So the theory that more crime is being committed just doesn't prove out. More Crime in Douglas Country than in other counties is easily attributed to population density. However , Lawrence, which is in Douglas county, did not even make it into the Top 10 Most dangerous cities in Kansas. https://www.roadsnacks.net/these-are-...

I am still waiting for an agnostic baker to refuse to make a wedding cake for a Christian couple based on Religious Grounds. The Conservative Right Wing Christians will say they are being attacked but have no qualms refusing the same services to anyone they deem to be outside their beliefs. Hypocrisy? Absolutely! This is why Separation of Church and State is imperative.
