    Things getting jiggy at a school board meeting in Louisiana- Teacher Arrested at School Board Meeting After Questioning Superintendent Contract

    Maybe there's a lot more bad cops than we think. Maybe instead of a 90/10 ratio its more like 65/35

    Yes, I noticed that. Just speaking in general terms, not at you directly. Innocent until proven guilty? Ha. To me that's an intellectual concept. Jumping to conclusions is much easier than finding out the facts.

    Isnt that the truth.

    In the UK there are a number of Police who aren't bullies or what not. Sadly they have their hands tied by rules and regulations not allowing them to do the job they are trained for.

    Over here in Norway, the Police seem to be seen in a lot more positive light. It is a respected job with oversubscription every year.

    Back on topic though, the Norway government voted on the December the 14 to decriminalise all drugs. Not entirely the same situation as California but definitely a step in the right direction.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corrup...ceptions_Index

    I have no idea the validity of this index. It places Denmark as least corrupt (misuse of power), Norway at #6, and USA at #18.

    Might factor in.







    Rich, what is available for people seeking substance abuse treatment?
    If it looks like I asked a question, but put a period, it's probably a question.
    Don't know why I'm question-mark challenged online. 😀 New Year's Resolution, better proof reading.

    Nothing is free. One of the earliest lessons in life is: if you try to take something that you have not earned there is a penalty.

    I guess Illinois is starting to consider it... I'm sure they still won't let construction workers smoke it, but it's a start.

    Yeah, but they test very heavy on certain jobs. I guess what I'm saying is that until it's ok nationwide, most employers could still have a zero tolerance thing for it
