Aloha!

We were checking out some of our visitor stats and we're getting visits from Hawaii of all places. How someone from the Aloha State found this website, we have no idea. Maybe it's a retiree? We've heard some people retire out there once in a while. Perhaps it's one of our Vegas readers on vacation.

Anyway, We topped 1,500 hits for Monday, we passed 196,000 total visitors and 960,000 page views. The one million mark looms ever closer and should be reached in the next 6 days or so, and 200,000 visits by weeks end - maybe. Thanks again to all our readers. We appreciate it.

Now, we took down the comments in the "Pension Questions" for a few hours because it had degenerated into a bullshit pissing match about something that had NOTHING to do with anything posted. KNOCK OFF THE BULLSHIT! We were attempting to address a serious issue and maybe get some information, not just for us, but for everyone. We are --><-- this close to instituting a fully registered or moderated comment area. Do we really have to keep explaining what a registered comment area means? A LIST. A list that is tracable and a list that can be subpoenaed in a civil court. Knock of the crap people. Fun is fun, but what was happening earlier was ridiculous.

Bad timing for this "light-hearted" topic.

SCC...my apologies being off topic. I've read several topics about the politics y'all have to put up with. I wanted to post this to show y'all what kind of political bs some cops have to put up with here in Tn.


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- House Speaker Jimmy Naifeh says it was a coincidence that he happened to be in a Nashville courtroom on the day a judge decided to dismiss more than 70 tickets.

The Covington Democrat said he was in General Session Judge Casey Moreland's courtroom on Feb. 16 to plead guilty to a December speeding ticket.

But instead of asking the judge if he could take traffic school in Tipton County, Naifeh - and more than 70 others - had their tickets cleared.

Naifeh remembered the judge telling the packed courtroom that "'I'm a very happy man today, and I just found out at 12 o'clock today that I have no opposition and that I'm going to be re-elected judge.

"'And I feel so good about it that I'm going to dismiss every citation today,'" Naifeh said.

Moreland told The Tennessean newspaper that Naifeh received no special treatment.

"It just happened to be 30 minutes after the qualifying deadline, and he was dealt with like everyone else in there," Moreland said.

Naifeh said he does not know Moreland and had not spoken to him other than to say hello before the hearing. He also shrugged off comparisons to Deputy Gov. Dave Cooley, whose February 2004 speeding ticket was dismissed through the Tennessee Highway Patrol.

Cooley said he didn't ask for any special consideration, but a videotape of the traffic stop from the patrol car showed Cooley handing the trooper his business card, which Cooley said he did reflexively as a courtesy.

"I think it's obvious that I wasn't trying to get out of a ticket," Naifeh said. "I was ready to pay my fine and go to driving school."

All the best to our Tennessee brethren. However, you may sense that due to a local incident, many of us are outraged with damn good reason. Humorous anecdotes aren't going over well tonight, my brother!

God knows we need more laughs...but not tonight!

All the best!

10:07 Mahalo! Enjoy a nice hike tomorrow on the Na Pali cliffs and check out the beach near Hanalei..

What happen in Tenn. is NO BIGGIE
traffic court in chicago for years was the biggest joke around, there was time ent the whole gallery of defendants were told to stand up and turn in their tickets and leave
So now Tenn is just catching up to what was the Norm for this City.

Wish that I was on ole rocky top,
Down in the tennessee hills.
Ain't no smoggy smoke on rocky top,
Ain't no telephone bills.

Once there was a girl on rocky top,
Half bear the other half cat.
Wild as a mink, sweet as soda pop,
I still dream about that.

Rocky top, you'll always be
Home sweet home to me.
Good ole rocky top,
Rocky top tennessee, rocky top tennessee.

Once two strangers climbed on rocky top,
Lookin' for a moonshine still.
Strangers ain't come back from rocky top,
Guess they never will.

Corn won't grow at all on rocky top,
Dirt's too rocky by far.
That's why all the folks on rocky top
Get their corn from a jar.

Rocky top, you'll always be
Home sweet home to me.
Good ole rocky top,
Rocky top tennessee, rocky top tennessee.

Now I've had years of cramped up city life,
Trapped like a duck in a pen.
Now all I know is it's a pity life
Can't be simple again.

Rocky top, you'll always be
Home sweet home to me.
Good ole rocky top,
Rocky top tennessee, rocky top tennessee.


GO VOLS!

God bless you.

One question. While we know that Microsoft (Hi, Bill!) is monitoring from Redmond, WA, the site meter indicates there has been no incoming traffic from Tennessee or Dixie in general. Generally speaking, where are you right now? It sure ain't the Volunteer State.

To SCC..Thanks. It's nice to know that we can come here and vent and hear what our brothers around the country have to say. And the interesting thing is, that no matter whatkind of star, shield, badge or whatever else they wear pinned to their chests. We all seem to fight the same bureuacrats and daily nonsense from our depts. God bless everyone out there on watch tonight and always.

Stay safe, my brothers!

"It's the responsibility of a traffic violator to try to talk you out of giving him a ticket. Don't be offended if he tries. If he doesn't at least try, don't give him a break."

Words of wisdom from an old time copper I knew, and NO, he wasn't talking about getting some scratch off the violator. He just opined that there was nothing wrong with a violator trying to get a break. After all, would anyone who reads this want to get a ticket.

The Tenn incident is a no brainer. And the Meeks incident would have been a no brainer too had he only listened to the Sergeant, gone back to his car, and politely introduced himself when the Sergeant approached him.

Instead, Meeks was full of himself and we know how that fared for the driver of the car....four citations, four findings of guilty, and Meeks pontificating about nothing. What an idiot!

"Too much college not enough high school."

As my grandmother used to say, "Too smart, but no smarts at all".

College boy checking the meter. Maybe you can make detective and clear all your cases from your computer. The new cops sure no how to work.

I came on the job over twenty-five years ago after my graduation from a large out-of-state university.

I have also found that some of our most savvy detectives and police officers have no more than a high school diploma. Likewise, there are also some outstanding police officers with college degrees.

What is your point?
