An AK is not a machine gun, even if it has been altered to fire full auto. The author of the article needs to become a bit more technically educated.

I already know i'm an idiot. That's why I stay at home when I could be outside roaming around doingRead More burglaries and vandalizing properties instead of writing what I know will work. It's not my fault burglary isn't a job and vandalism doesn't pay, maybe he would have been good at fishing or be the next Picasso. I grew up in Temecula and I know there is nothing to do there unless you have lots of friends and family, all the people there care about it money, cars, and how they look. There's nothing to do there if you don't have family either, because if you're alone, you're on the streets.

Ken- I would think the female would be a bit leery about taking a bite. Or it could be a case of yesRead More I will, but now I won't. Maybe she was slapped around and figured the less of two evils.

ChrisG July 8, 2014 at 06:08 am
@dave, I don't buy into that 20% deterrent stat. Nothing deters people from drinking and drivingRead More like reading about a bunch of people getting arrested for it. Checkpoints do not do that. Roving patrols however do. Everyone posting here is anti-DUI. The difference is how to better use that grant money. Checkpoints do not measure up compared with saturation patrols. Think about it.
Shannan Buffolino July 13, 2014 at 01:57 pm
I understand both sides here, but can I say how this does actually keep more drunk drivers off theRead More roads, and how this probably has saved more lives than we know. When they do these checkpoints, PEOPLE talk, social media, text, and I have even heard a dj stop music and say they heard there are a couple of checkpoints, advising to take a cab for $20 , rather than the many costs a DUI arrest will cost. So a lot will take a cab, or someone else drives, or they can even have a couple hours, drink water, maybe sober up sitting inside the casino until 5 am to avoid that checkpoint. So just because no one was arrested at the DUI checkpoints, it certainly stops and deters A lot of drunk people from driving. :)
Shannan Buffolino July 13, 2014 at 01:59 pm
And I agree also with Chris about the roving patrol.
