If police officers were paid enough, they wouldn’t have to do things illegally? Surely you jest. They get paid decent salaries. Besides, if your thinking is acceptable, everyone who makes less than a police officer’s salary should be entitled to a life of crime, right?

Any police officer who breaks the law should lose his or her pension and the right to own a firearm.

Two 19-year-old men were arrested for having sex with a 13-year-old. According to police, the girl claimed she spent almost every night with one of the men. What parent allows this?

Good parenting makes for good schools. Add in competent, dedicated and respected teachers, and you can have
great schools. We don’t need things like vouchers, school letter grades, merit pay or any other “trendy” ideas from
politicians.

It’s rather amazing it’s
taking a new law

Las Vegas.
