I agree with you Camille vineyard...10 years is a slap in a face to the women that were abused byRead More him. I mean the law in itself is a start but they should have known 10 years is nothing for a guy like this.

Text and Drive recently became the #1 killer of teens in the US - more lethal than drunk driving. IRead More think its starting to become clear that legislation has value in raising public awareness in forums like this one but it will be difficult to solely legislate our way out of this issue. I also read that over 3/4 of teens text daily - many text more than 4000 times a month. New college students no longer have email addresses! They use texting and Facebook - even with their professors. Tweens (ages 9 -12) send texts to each other from their bikes. Technology needs to be part of the solution and not dismissed as the villain. I decided to do something about distracted driving after my three year old daughter was nearly run down right in front of me by a texting driver. Instead of a shackle that locks down phones and alienates the user, I built a texting asset called OTTER that is a simple and intuitive GPS based, texting auto reply app for smartphones. While driving, OTTER silences those distracting call ringtones and chimes unless a bluetooth is enabled. The texting auto reply allows anyone to schedule a ‘texting blackout period’ in any situation like a meeting or a lecture without feeling disconnected. This software is a social messaging tool for the end user that also empowers this same individual to be a sustainably safer driver. Erik Wood, owner OTTER apps (Since 2010. Free)

Robert- I agree with you. Conveniently, police officers are exempt from this law (I have retired lawRead More enforcement in my family, & even they find that ridiculous). On NJ.com, they had a similar article. However, they noted in it that the police had undercover decoys, & when they saw someone drive by using their phone, they notified the regular cop cars. At that point, when the said offender drove up to where the cops were, they were signaled to pull into the adjacent parking lot & were then issued tickets.

Meanwhile there are laws that require new homes be fit with separate firesuppression systemsRead More increasing prices by30% minimum. Perhaps cutting down on the $100K+ administrators and dead wood could help subsidize the costs instead of continually going back to the gifthorse taxpayers. As to punishment, people screwup in life, perhaps 30-60days LWOP or something which will deter this in the future. This may have been a blessing in disguise as above mentioning this may have avoided children being killed where a circuit overloads(w breaker failing to trip) and burns building to ground.

It is just over fourteen years since the tragic dorm fire at Seton Hall claimed the lives of threeRead More students, and injured many more. As a result of that fire, the NJ Legislature introduced bills to require sprinkler systems be installed in all college dorms in NJ, (http://www.nj.com/news/ledger/index.ssf?/news/ledger/stories/setonhallfire/fire03.html). Unfortunately, the legislation did not address K-12 schools. Both mrszzano and David make very valid points about the costs of retro-fitting schools with fire suppression system. But in today's world of technology, the costs of doing that may not be as restrictive as some think. In that connection, every school board in the state should conduct studies on installing modern fire suppression in schools and school district offices that currently lack them. Those studies should then be presented to the districts taxpayers for consideration. The most cost effective installation could and should be phased in the school districts budgets. When all aspects of a school district's budget are considered (actually the CAFR {Certified Accounting Financial Record} are far better to see where the money really went), what expenditure(s) are more sacrosanct than the safety of a child or those that educate them? P.S. CAFR's can be obtained from the school district by submitting an OPRA (Open Public Records Act) to the district. Ask for it in an electronic format, usually a pdf, as there are no reproductions cost to the requester, when done in that manner.
mrszzano March 30, 2014 at 10:52 am
I agree, Tom, that the safety and interests of the children should be utmost on anyone's agenda.Read More However, unfortunately financial restraints sometimes require that some projects be postponed. One can only hope that safety issues are not the ones being postponed. And even though everyone is (obviously) onboard with keeping our kids safe, when it comes time to vote on the budget, some people only see the numbers. That's why so many school buildings are crumbling, and systems are outdated. It's sad, but until money goes where it should, all we can rely on is common sense and constant vigilance on the part of the schools' staffs.

The TMZ video I just watched showed what it looked like to be Ray Rice pulling his drunk fiance outRead More of an elevator. He may have been mad at her and had a fight with her but I doubt he had intent to severely harm her or I'm sure she would be in critical condition right now.

"not been privy to each and every detail of this investigation". We can take that to meanRead More "we don't know a damn thing"! Acting Prosecutor Carey says "the murderer has been charged". Apparently proof beyond any reasonable doubt?
