Actually, if he is a thirty year county employee, he does have a defined benefit pension.

My question is this... Why does BobA think that a public safety employee potentially risking his life at low pay does NOT deserve to be able to retire after 30 years of service?

How long do public safety employees have to risk their lives before they "deserve" a retirement?

Thirty years is a long time of dedicated service to the county fire department.

Georgia's Supreme Court Justices are elected by voters through nonpartisan statewide elections. You might want to educate yourself before you say someone else is dumber than a stump.

Loganville has its own fire department and has for years. They are an incorporated city within Gwinnett.

Now you are beginning to see the reason for the service delivery dispute to begin with. The county WASN'T providing those services to city residents but they were billing them anyways. The cities got tired of their residents paying full county taxes when the cities provided police, planning and zoning, parks, etc for their residents.

The amount of service provided by the county isn't changing... they just aren't getting to bill the cities for services they weren't really providing to city residents.

This is not even a remotely accurate comparison. The fact that you hold it out to be speaks volumes. Just a few reasons why....

  1. Private schools hand pick the children they educate. Public schools educate all children.

  2. Private schools can expel non-performers while public schools do not.

  3. Private schools tend to have a higher socioeconomic status compared to public schools. There is a proven correlation between socioeconomic class and school performance.

These are just a few reasons your comparison is not valid. The list goes on. I am very pleased with my child's education with GCPS.

Tasers are "less lethal" when used as designed. They also will cause total incapacitation until their battery runs dry, which is several minutes, or until you let go of the trigger. They also can cause potentially life threatening events when they are NOT used as designed.

It is sad when people try and place blame on people other than the criminal that decided to fight a police officer while committing a crime.

You can only put so much information on a sign. There are exceptions to the law regarding school carry for many things including:

  1. On-Duty Police Officers
  2. People participating in law enforcement training with a police department.
  3. People authorized by a school official to have a weapon.

Additionally, an entirely different code section exempts entire groups of people from the law entirely including ALL police, sheriff, military, judges, prosecutors, retired police, etc. (OCGA 16-11-130)

The list goes on and on... Check OCGA 16-11-127.1 if you don't believe me.

LoganvilleResident 1 year, 8 months ago on MCCULLOUGH: Do unto others, unless it'll get us sued

According to the family and the facility, the level of care provided at the facility was KNOWN prior to her admission. If the patient and family had full disclosure of the level of care, there is nothing to criticize. She knew if she had a medical emergency, they would not provide medical care.

Let people choose how to live out there last days instead of trying to enforce your beliefs on them. She made a choice to live there knowing full well what would happen if she went into cardiac arrest.

For once, I agree with you NewsReader. If she moved into the home knowing they would not provide medical care, we should respect and honor her decision. The family obviously is OK with it and they say it was also her desire. Who are we to judge the nursing home and nurse if the lady wanted to be left alone?
