At 3:52 a.m., Police were called to an address in the 2200 block of Harper on a possible aggravated burglary. A caller reported that he believed someone had entered his home through a backdoor. The subject didn't stick around and left through the same door. The caller told Dispatchers that he, the resident, had armed himself with a knife and was in a bedroom with one of his two children. Four officers checked the area and did not report locating anyone in the area. It sounded as though Officers believe the resident heard the car accident and thought it was someone inside his home.

Republicans Fail

Lindsey Graham (R) famously said that the number one item on the Republican agenda was to make Mr. Obama a one-term president. Though I am sure there will be a lot of hand clenching and tooth gnashing over consequences of Mr. Romney's loss to President Obama, the one thing that cannot be disputed is that the President's victory represents a complete failure of the Republican agenda.

Instead of reaching compromise agreements on health care, working with the president on free market solutions to climate change or helping to create new lightly regulated funding mechanisms for start-up companies by working on the JOBS bill, Republicans chose to focus on obstructing the President's agenda. They chose to paint him as a socialist, block his initiatives, block his appointments and demonize him. They chose the path of obstruction over the path of compromise.

During the debt ceiling debate and the Obamacare debate Mr Obama practically begged Republicans to meet him in the middle. He offered compromises on taxes, on the health care mandate, he offered to compromise on Social Security age restrictions and on and on and on. All the Republicans could say to this was No, No, No.

Instead of serving their constituents, they served their ideology.

Now that agenda is a complete failure. The Republicans failed to get their ideas included in the President's programs, then they failed to remove the President. More importantly however, they failed their constituents.

I hope they learn their lesson, but I doubt they will. The Republicans need to change their attitude. They need to work with Democrats, reach across the isle and make compromises.

They need a new agenda, one that serves their constituents rather than their vanity. An agenda rooted in what is best for the country. They need to work with the President and not against him.

Lawrence Police and Fire Medical crews were dispatched to an address in the 2400 block of Redbud Lane on a report of a structure fire at 3:58 this morning. Dispatchers reported two callers, one reporting smoke visible with smoke alarms sounding and the second reported a "piece of paper on fire". The caller who reported the burning piece of paper told dispatchers that the paper had been "thrown out of a window". Fire units continued to an emergency response to the scene. Crews reported nothing visible upon arrival and declared "all clear and under control" at 4:07 a.m.. According to scanner traffic, the incident is being investigated as an arson. There were no immediate reports of damage.

At 4:40 a.m. two officers responded on a burglary alarm on a business in the 1500 block of W 6th Street. Those officers located an exterior door standing open and requested additional units to the area to assist in clearing the building's interior. Officers cleared the building and it did not sound as though anyone was located inside. It is unclear, to me at least, if there was a burglary or simply an unlocked door blown open by the wind.
