Police say man intended to crash into sheriff's vehicle on Clinton Lake Dam

If he really wanted to "murder" him, he could of waited till he was out of his car, or tried to ram his car off a cliff ect... no he didn't he hit him from the rear end. I'm not saying he needs off or not be punished for what he did or even that the victims life had lesser value. I'm not blaming who could of avoided this, but he wasn't red lining it, he took the mini van not the car. Why wasn't he charged? The text message records show that he had no intend of hurting anyone, it was a last second thing. I pray for you that heaven forbid you do anything wrong I don't go looking for the worse punishment possible as a way to solve it.

Police say man intended to crash into sheriff's vehicle on Clinton Lake Dam

Because I have children, job, and a life of my own. He had called me around lunch time and was able to defuse him and told him to call for help, which he did. The police told him they wouldn't do nothing and to wait till the hearing. The phone call he made right before the accident was just after I picked up my kids from school and he would not tell me his location. Not at anytime during the call did he mention hitting anybody, as four other callers were linked to the call to testify to that. I assist helping him! I don't have a wand to fix it, in fact my husband went over three times during the past week to help him, he was beyond friend or family help and no one would step in, and all the police would do was fuel him.

Witness: 12-year-old struck by car in downtown Lawrence 'flew 30 feet'

what I really like you know it is where in the article Did it State where her parents were she was 12 years old shouldn't have been roaming around downtown Lawrence by herself also you're not really paying attention if you're looking at your cellphone specially if you're only four feet into the crosswalk not making excuses for the driver but there's probably a reason why he wasn't cited I think people will be driving a little bit easier if the idiots running the city of Lawrence wouldn't be closing so many streets all at once.

Despite ban, Lawrence police respond to fireworks calls over holiday

The police are worthless, they pull over to tell me no fireworks on July 3rd and are not allowed to be set off on any public roads or after 10pm even though a park ranger said I could. I asked what are these rules then...cause I'm out in the country on a dirt road, with kiddie fireworks. ..they told me, no public roads, no one's property, or city limits or after 10pm...WTF..
Some freedom! Ruin little kids having fun. I was nice enough to show I was picking up after myself and they sit in there car and wait for me to leave.
