Letter to the editor: Facts are facts

Where was the Law when The Bush administration started an illegal war and outed an active CIA Agent when they had information that disproved their motive for the invasion of Iraq? Where was the law when 22 million emails were deleted by Karl Rove, Dick Cheney et al? The Republicans said nothing about any of this but are having a problem with a Democratic Presidential candidate that was found not culpable after all of the Benghazi Hearings and the Email Hearings and an FBI investigation. Can You say Witch Hunt? How about Partisan BS? How about Hypocrisy? Where were the inquiries by Republicans against Republicans? Doesn't the Law matter even if it is a member of the same party that caused a war where many Thousands of soldiers and hundreds of thousands of civilians lost their lives? Doesn't it matter to republicans that a Republican President sold arms to an Islamic extremist group that later became Osama Bin Laden and Al Qeada which led to the rise of ISIS? I guess not. Remember what old Ronnie (Reagan) said, "Thou shalt not speak ill of thy Fellow Republican".And Armen,I really don't care if you question my Veteran's status. I served during the early to mid 80's at Fort Benning GA. in the US Army Infantry, Bravo Co. 3rd Battalion, 7th Infantry division of the 197th Infantry Training Brigade. I have no need to prove anything to someone like you who questions the Honor of others. You apparently have none.

I feel sorry for you Bart. I clearly understand the Rule of Law. It has nothing to do with Your opinion on a case. I am a veteran and I served my country to uphold The Constitution and The Rule of Law. Not sure what you are talking about when you refer to "Free Stuff." I work hard for everything I get. I Pay MY taxes. And You Know what you can do with that "Shame on You"? I will be glad to show you. I feel no shame in my service to this country and in being a contributing member of Society. The Shame should fall on you for feeling that you are right and everyone else is wrong and somehow you are above it all. That is just ignorance and arrogance you display.

You can't have a trial by jury unless charges were brought and a judge agreed to proceed. The FBI said she was careless but not Criminally Negligent. There are no charges to be filed so there will be no trial. Sorry that you will never find happiness, Bart. If this system of Law we have here in the US was truly just, W, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rice, Powell and Gonzales would all be sporting matching Orange Jumpsuits. Nobody really cares if you admit you are wrong or not. This isn't about You. This is about the Rule of Law and it has been presented and upheld. If being careless is a criminal act in our Government, then, they should all be locked up!

Lawrence Police Department to launch campaign against impaired drivers

Dorothy, with all due respect, you don't have to be drunk to kill someone in a vehicle. Anyone driving a vehicle has the potential to cause an accident or fatality for any number of reasons. Drunk driving accounts for about 28%(Latest NHTSB Numbers) of Highway fatalities nation wide and Speeding, Inattentive driving and Bad weather cause all of the rest in that order. People that say drunk drivers are the worst problem we face are just plain wrong and the statistics prove it. Also, all of the reasons are preventable(Don't Speed, Don't Text and drive, Don't drink and drive and don't drive in Bad weather) They are all contributors to thousands of fatalities nation wide every year but Drinking and driving is targeted way more than others. Again, I ask, ever wondered why?

"Retest is one of them, could lower stupid accidents where drivers just don't pay attention, to the worse the Drunks" Drunk driving accounts for less than third of Fatalities according to the NHTSBs most recent numbers. Speeding and Inattentive driving cause , by far the most. Almost two thirds. Also, drinking and driving and driving while drunk are not the same thing but are treated and punished as the same. How many people go to jail and loose their license for a year or 2 for speeding or texting while driving? They target drinkers even though it has been proven that they cause less than a third of the problems. Where are the "You Text. You drive. You Loose" or the "You speed. You drive. You loose" campaigns? The fines and punishments for speeding and inattentive driving are no where near as severe as for individuals that consume alcohol. Ever ask Why that is?

Actually the $70,000 figure is low. $1,500 for lawyer for each person, About $850.00 for fines and court costs, $270 tow bill, $75.00 dollars for the Victim Impact class, Mandatory Counseling $130 and up depending on length of treatment based on your intake Evaluation, And the interlock device that you will be paying $76 dollars a month for a year or two adds up to quite a chunk of money. All for parking your car and going in for coffee after dinner and drinks with friends.

I don't follow you here. Are you saying that people driving with no License or suspended licenses will show up voluntarily to take a driving test at the DMV? And Restricted drivers who have DUI/OUI convictions are already closely monitored by the courts and agencies that install and periodically check the device for evidence of tampering or drunk driving. Not sure how this test will affect this group of Drivers. Only Law abiding drivers will voluntarily take a 10 year proficiency test and I think that is a good idea.
