Just because the police say the vehicle smelled like marijuana doesn't they were smoking. VPD is full of notorious straw graspers. Not to mention...the fact that marijuana was mentioned makes the story much jucier for the Advocate!
What are you talking about?
nothingsurprisesme:Please read the article before making unrelated comments. Officer Hanson was referring to THIS PARTICULAR INTERSECTION when he stated that speed never seemed to be a factor. Good job Googling accidents caused by excessive speed though. All those statistics make you look REALLY smart.*sigh*
WWW: It is not just rapes that SANE nurses take on. They also investigate all the sexual abuse allegations. And unfortunately, my mother told me that most of her cases were children suffering long term sexual abuse.
Momof2:My mother was a SANE nurse in Victoria a few years ago. She was one of the nurses who helped get this program off the ground. Before SANE, examinations were performed by doctors who lacked the sensitivity training to make the process as comfortable as possible. To answer your question, it takes less than a year to complete SANE training. But many nurses find the emotional toll too great to stay in a SANE position very long. At one time, there were quite a few SANE nurses, but most of them have either moved away(like my mother), or quit. As for SANE nurses dropping the ball, I don't think that's fair. These nurses also have other full-time jobs, and with only three left, it would be unreasonable to expect one to be available 24/7. They have lives too. Plus, the number of cases that come into the ER is a lot higher than you would expect. When my mother was one of a dozen(give or take a few), she was called in constantly. I can't imagine the caseload these women are taking on now that there are only three!
This is so cool!
I worked with Kolby at Chili's briefly, and knew him for years after that. He truly was one of the nicest guys ever. And Sweet58- it doesn't matter how you word it or try to gloss it over, please shut up and quit asking questions. Do you realize his family will read this? Have some class! Darlin put it well...this is NOT something to be speculated over publicly. Shame on you.
RUKIDDINGME:LOLmade me laugh out loud with that one ;-)
