Squawk of the Day - April 15, 2012

"We are entirely too lax on many of the laws in Albany, Baggy Pants at the mall, grocery stores and on the streets. Also, drivers texting, speeding, floating stop signs and running red lights. Laws need to be enforced on everyone."

For more squawks, pick up a copy of today's Albany Herald.

There are not enough law enforcement officers in Albany / Dougherty County to enforce everyone that violates the many laws. Go out to the mall and see the many that are wearing saggy pants. Stop at any redlight or stop sign and watch the floaters. See how many are home within curfew hours. It is unreal. The majority of these stay up all night and sleep during the day and are not interested in a job, but rather live off of the government and taxpayers. What has happened to living a morally good life and self-esteem?

I agree with tocar on this. When you have parents that don't care or don't monitor their children, the results are shown in their behavior. Many parents today just want their children out of the house and out of their way. I have known of some one (1) parents homes where the children are a success story, so all one (1) parent homes are not solely to blame. Law enforcement do their very best with the personnel they have, but with the salary being one of the lowest, geting quality people are hard to find. This is when we all need to become involved and help law enforcement by becoming involved. PERIOD.

How many police officer salaries could have been paid with the funds spent on Welcome to Albany signs and the stupid looking arch? Or better yet with the money sunk into to a dead downtown Albany and the Aquariun. If taxpayers money was spent in bettering Albany instead of these stupid money pits things would be better.

There is not enough time on the Court Calander, nor room in the jail for total enforcement. It night be different if there were the least bit of respect for authority taught to Children, but that is a thing of the past. Seems most all parents, my self included, failed to convey that message by our own actions. If it says 55 we take the ten and do 65. If it's yellow, we speed up, we don't slow down. If the limit is 12 Dove we shoot 50. If the fish limit is small, we go in, clean what we have and then go back out for another limit. Used to be real interesting with about baiting, before we made it legal. Shop lifting or minor theft seem to be accepted. Why don't parents question where that new I-Pod came from? Whatever happened to respect for the law? By the way, I dodn't do nor condone most of these, but as to speed limits, guilty as charged.

The Bible says by your fruit you shall be known. It comes at home first. And you wonder how the school teachers have to deal with them
