4 agencies, 8 hours and 1 arrest. Money well spent.
Reality Check July 23, 2014 at 10:10 am
Redwood City recently had about a dozen or so officers work a 7-hour checkpoint (which probablyRead More makes a full shift's worth of overtime with before and after set-up, clean-up). The result? 1,076 drivers screened and 1 (one!) DUI. Wow! 1/1076 = less than one tenth of one percent ... or < 0.001.

How ridiculous. That's like arresting Amtrak for all of the times the cops pick up peopleRead More transporting marijuana in big suitcases in their baggage cars (it happens frequently---you'd be surprised). Amtrak has nothing to do with that----they're just transporting baggage. Same thing here---FedEx is just transporting a package; they have no clue what its contents are.

Meanwhile the national news networks seemed to miss the story when Google got caught in a similarRead More scheme, actually with more evidence of complicity. Not easy to find the story but here are two sources: http://www.wired.com/2013/05/google-pharma-whitaker-sting/all/ http://www.tomsguide.com/us/Larry-Page-Canadian-Peter-Neronha-online-pharmacies-Justice-Department,news-12323.html The story was mentioned briefly on the Leo LaPorte show and in more depth by John Batchelor (who noted that Clinton DOJ henchwoman Jamie Gorelick was brought in to negotiate the half-billion $ settlement; Gorelick now sits on the Google board.

Genius. since he is in banking I suppose the US taxpayers will have to bail him out. Not quite TARPRead More scale so I guess the proper bailout would be sending him into the private screening room with a bunch of strippers.

I appreciate your comment Jeremiah and I don't think I could've said it better myself, so I won't beRead More redundant. Except to repeat only one thing-- This is why Mr Melhman: "the age limit is based on the medical risk profile that would endanger both the employee and the public he is tasked with serving. The likelihood of sudden debilitating circumstances increases with age and these jobs have a stress level which can precipitate it." I'm still of working age yet from day to day I have bizarre health issues pop up. I run abt 3-5 miles per day, 5-6 days a week. I'm in excellent health. I'm also clever and a bright individual. Yet I've begun having pains in places, and I'm also getting forgetful. My eyesight is decreasing. I get stressed easier than I used to. Because this is our natural human aging process. we age. we just do. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Now, in reading this article, I didn't read, nor did I realize we were discussing being let go at a certain age. I thought we were talking about applying for the job, where can age limit is set due to medical and statistical averages. So I agree with you, I do not think a person should be let go the day they turn 62. Most others do also, that;s why we are offered pensions at particular ages for incentive. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Lastly, your point using vote vs age limits is like comparing dogs to elephants, and completely irrelevant. We're talking about a person's capability to perform a certain type of job.

**** And I bet SouthernBelle knows something many women and men have forgotten - it's a whole lotRead More more fun acting out the roles when men act like men and women act like women and we all play the game and enjoy life as equal but thankfully different! **** Any good man who values his life knows women are superior to men and don't argue with them because even if you win, you lose!! :-) **** hahahahahahahahahaha!!! Yep, exactly how I feel. There are many many careers out there to choose from. Maybe a girl's passion is to put on 100 lbs of equipment and run up stairs to fight a fire and carry out a 250 lb man- but I'm guessing more aren't than are interested in that. But I'll tell you what, if my daddy's house catches fire and some gal runs up his stairs she best be able to carry him down because HIS life depends on it. And if she can't, then her taking a job she's unable to perform is just wrong.

one more thing--Mr Melhman, Not sure how long you've been in the area or if you are familiar with LARead More county hiring for Police and fire. But over the past 10 yrs they have had to lower their physical ability testing, as well as their hiring requirements because they had to account for women's physical abilities, and not enough men or women were passing the orals due to prior drug use (even trying it once counts), criminal records (DUI's fall in this), etc. This is also why the quality is lower than it used to be. We haven't seen nothing yet! It's abt to get a whole lot worse because no one wants police officer jobs anymore. so sad how we treat them!
