Civilians handle minor duties for strapped police – Departments under budget burdens hire outside help

Facing tighter budgets, law enforcement agencies across the country are increasingly turning to civilians to respond to some calls that sworn officers and deputies are usually responsible for.
That means people calling 911 to report a traffic accident, a burglarized home or a stolen car may be greeted by a civilian in a polo shirt instead of a gun-toting officer.
“It hasn’t been universally adopted throughout the country. But most areas have at least thought about the alternative and are more open to it now because of the economy,” said Richard Brady, president of the Palo Alto, Calif.-based Matrix Consulting Group that has worked with more than 250 law enforcement agencies.

SAN DIEGO, California – To his Navy SEAL buddies, Petty Officer 2nd Class Michael A. Monsoor will always be known as “Mikey,” a fun-loving 25-year-old guy who had “a little mischievous look on his face.” It’s a face they’ll never forget. On Sept. 29, 2006, while on a mission in Ramadi, Iraq, Monsoor and other members of a Navy SEAL sniper team were within a moment of death. An insurgent had tossed a grenade into their hideout, hitting Monsoor in the chest before bouncing to the floor. In an instant, Monsoor was on the grenade, using his body to shield his comrades from the blast. More… Discount Magazine SubscriptionsDiscount Cigarettes & TobaccoNutty News MarketplaceFragrance Net

Democrat Congressman Jack Murtha & Time Magazine: So Far, So Wrong

Last week’s development in the Haditha case, the dropping of all the charges leveled against Lance Cpl. Stephan Tatum for actions related to Haditha, Iraq, drives another nail into the shameful accusations made by Time magazine and Rep. John Murtha.
Time magazine, with an assist from the Pennsylvania Democrat, sparked a legal and media inquisition against eight courageous United States Marines. Both Time and Murtha claimed these Marines committed cold-blooded murder in Haditha during a 2005 engagement.
They also alleged the Marines participated in covering up their alleged atrocities.
But after years of litigation and estimated $40 million in taxpayer funds expended, none of the Marines have been found guilty of committing murder or war crimes. More… Discount Magazine SubscriptionsDiscount Cigarettes & TobaccoNutty News MarketplaceMrs. Fields Gifts

China – Deer penis, turtle blood and angelica root potions have joined steroids and amphetamines on the list of banned drugs for Chinese Olympians.
While China’s top athletes have long sought a competitive edge by ingesting traditional concoctions, those customs are fading amid stricter doping rules and concern that drug scandals will embarrass the host nation during the Summer Olympics in Beijing. The nation’s sports stars are replacing millennia-old elixirs with vitamins, protein shakes and Western remedies.

Ohio – A man arrested in Cincinnati on a charge of disorderly conduct remained in custody Friday because a judge refused to reduce a $1 million bond that was imposed on a charge he stole $21 in products nearly 18 years ago. Gary Weaver, 41, of Owingsville, Ky., was arrested Wednesday, and court officials found out that there was a warrant for him from 1990. A judge dealt with the disorderly conduct charge on Thursday by sentencing Weaver to the one night he already had spent in jail. But he refused to reduce the original bond, which was imposed after Weaver allegedly used fake rolls of dimes to pay a store for a $21.64 purchase.
