“Wisconsin area, 20,000-30,000 year starting full time without overtime.

After about 10 years in service, its around 40,000-50,000.”

“Several commenters have indicated that this was the 3rd shooting by Santa Rosa Sheriff's Dept. in recent years. How does this compare with your area in Wisconsin? Some commenters have said that the shootings may have occurred in part because the Santa Rosa Sheriffs are underpaid therefore attract lesser candidates.”

“There was a preseason game similar to this, the team was going for a kneel (instead of a spike) and the defense jumped hard trying to force a last minute fumble.

There were players hit, there were concerns of injuries (thankfully none) but there was not a single flag thrown as the refs know every play isn't over until their whistle is blown.”

“What are you talking about.

If Stafford signals for a spike and fakes it the defense has every right to make a hit on him as he will be considered a runner, and Stafford knows this. If he signals a spike and doesn't fake it and still gets hit then the defense just awarded him 15 yards, stopped clock anyway, and a 1st down. Good tradeoff.”

“Our officers are not paid enough, and that pay subsequently leads to high school dropouts and power hungry maniacs to police us. If we increase taxes and use that money to better fund the hiring process, training of our officers, and pay/benefits we can weed out those bad eggs by hiring and keeping people that are truly qualified.”

“What is the pay scale for your Sheriff Dept? I live in a New England city of some 175,000 people. Every year the City Manager's office puts out a list of the top 100 earners on the city payroll. Routinely 50-60 of the top 100 earners work in the Police Dept.”

“Technically there is.

Manufacturers are required to display a bright orange tip on all "toy" guns.

This child, like many others have including myself in my youth removed it as you can see in the pictures.

That said, an orange tip alone is not enough as they are often extremely small.”

Here is a link found within the article above showing exactly the rifle in question.

And as I stated above, there was allegedly a toy handgun also found on the child, but once again I will state what I said before. The handgun is irrelevant to the story.

Not defending anyone, just calling you on your missinformed statements regarding the story when the factual information is right in front of you.”

I see no safety tip, often times kids will remove the orange cap that protrudes from these toy airsoft guns.

I myself was guilty of playing with these lifelike toys as a kid and I cannot vouch for what occured at this scene. But I have personally been in a situation much like this where police arrived to where we were playing with said "toys" me and my friends reaction immediately? We threw down our "toys," our hands up in the air and shouted "They are toys! They are toys!"

Needless to say we never played with those airsoft again, switched to paintball where there are controlled settings and controlled areas.

In the end this is a terrible tragedy that everyone involved now must live with for the rest of their lives, but blame should not be pointed at the parents, nor the officers involved.”

“Both of these statements are correct.

There were 2 toy guns found at the scene.

The first was the toy similar to an AK-47.

The second was a toy handgun found in the boy's waistband after the fact (Allegedly) but this is a completely moot point in the matter when looking at the totallity of the circumstances surrounding the original toy gun in question and why the shooting was started.

These are all spelled out right in the article, how is this so hard to comprehend?”

Riverman on Oct 24, 2013 at 09:05:44

“I read the article but maybe you read something else. I suspect the real difference is that I wasn’t looking for any excuse to justify the killing of this young man. At the very least this was horribly bad police work. Cops in Texas have to contend with a population is commonly armed with real firearms and yet they do their jobs without using that excuse to execute people let alone children carrying pellet guns.”

NFL Thursday Night Football: League Denies Report About Adding Another Weekday Game

“The fact that the games are not exciting on Thursday Night football is not a fault of the scheduling, but merely lack of success at the teams playing.

Upcoming schedule are solid matched games as well as some good division rivalries.

Seahawks/Cardinals this week is a good division game.
Bengals/Dolphins is a good matchup.
Colts/Titans both a good matchup as well as a good division game.
Saints/Falcons same.

All those games are scheduled for Thursday Night Football and should be exciting.

Also your comment "I refuse to pay to watch TV" implies that it wouldn't matter anyway who was playing. You already refuse to watch half of the games provided on Sunday anyway, because many are not aired without paying for premium channels. So why does it matter if they are aired on Thursday?”

“I agree with ridding the season of preseason games, but the Thursday night games are in my personal opinion not an issue.

My dislike of preseason stems from no-name players that are playing at 110% to try to make the team, which forces starters to play at 100% level for fear of risking injury from those lower level talents.

To adjust for the lack of preseason to find more talent to fill the gaps, as well as adjusting for the "shortened" week during a Thursday Night Football scheduled game I would propose increasing team rosters as well as salary caps (to adjust for the added players)

The league itself should support this as it allows for more player safety with the ability to rotate players more, as well as opens the opportunity to create more scheduled games in the future and reach that possible 18 game season Goodell has always been dreaming of.

The players union should support this because it increases their membership and thus representation with any further CBAs.”

“Increase their rosters but as far as the salary caps.....they make enough. By increasing the caps you will be looking at higher ticket prices and 40 dollar hot dogs”

“Many of these "Non-Essential" jobs are support staff such as secretaries, custodians and other staff that create higher efficiency within the workplace.

A good example to compare to would be a school.

Teachers would be the essential staff, and maybe an administrator or 2. But janitors, secretaries, and probably half the bus drivers and lunch cooks would be sent home every other day.

This hurts how the whole school runs and that work load goes on the "Essential staff" (who in this example would be the teachers) which takes away from their primary duties and poorly affects their job (in this example teaching) but you have techically not furloughed any "essential" staff.”
