I agree with Georgy, right now there are flashing yellow lights at the intersection and that is not necessary. Some ambient street lighting is all that is needed with a round-a-bout.
Check this out:
German town abolishes traffic lights and codes. Accidents are now almost non-existent!Bill Ottman11/15/13
In this fascinating public experiment, a German town wanted to see what would happen to traffic flow if they got rid of street signs, lights and other restrictions. The results are intuitive, but not what you would expect! Everything got safer and faster. Would this model hold true for other areas of infrastructure? Drivers must give way to the left and not drive too fast. That's the only rule. Even the police love the new system, and best of all, people are safer on the road. Drivers are much more aware and use eye contact and instincts. People WANT to stop for other people and help things move more efficiently.
^ Traffic used to be a big issue when they had street lights, it would backup and get really slow through town. Now there is no more bad traffic.

Meet Jean Hill:
James Darnell : What is your name Mame?Jean Hill
James Darnell : From Dallas? Did you see the shooting, Mame?
Jean Hill: Yes sir.
James Darnell : Could you describe what happen?
James Darnell : Could you do that now?
Jean Hill: Uh, they were driving along, and we were the only people in this area, on our side. Shots came directly across the street from us. And just as the president's car became directly even with us, we took one look at him, sitting there, he and Jackie were looking at [something] in the middle of the seat, and about that time, 2 shots rang out, just as he looked up. Just as the president looked up...The president looked up, hear the shots rang out and then he grabbed his chest, looked like he was in pain, then fell over in the seat, then Jackie fell on him. My god he's been shot.
James Darnell : Ah.. Ah... And...
Jean Hill: Then more shots rang out... and then the car sped away.
James Darnell : What kind of car was that?
Jean Hill: What kind of care was it? It's the president's car!
James Darnell : No, I mean, where did the shots come from?
Jean Hill: The shots came from the hill.
James Darnell : The Hill?
Jean Hill: Yes. Uh, it was just east of the underpass.
James Darnell : and, Uh Hun...
Jean Hill: We were just on the south side.
James Darnell : Could you see... Did you look up there, where the shots came from, mam?
James Darnell : Could you see anyone?
Jean Hill: Ah, I thought I saw this man running, but I look at the president, and you know, for awhile, and then I looked up there and thought saw a man running. So, right after that, I didn't have any better sense and started running up there too.
James Darnell : Uh Hun, what is your name mame?
Jean Hill: Jean Hill
James Darnell : J-e-a-n?
Jean Hill: J-e-a-n.
James Darnell : And what's your address?
Jean Hill: 9402 Bluff Creek
James Darnell : 9402 Bluff Creek
CUTOFF...James Darnell : That was an interview I had with Mrs Jean Hill of Dallas, a few minutes ago.

I read both sides and make a determination of who is most accurate.

1) Nobody claims that a gun wasn't being pointed out from the book depository or that shots were not fired from there. More importantly than how many witnesses were killed is which witnesses were they and what did they want to say they saw. Even if only 5 or 10 of those people were actually murdered, that would invoke a conspiracy,
2) Well I suppose if a conviction was overturned you can still get away with saying they were convicted now eh ;)
3) Still curious, secret ops are often fluid
4) Presents motive which is evidence that can be upheld in a court of law.
5) Distraction, obfuscation, similar to your function whether intended or not.

Speaking of Joe Rogan, he only lives a little more than an hour from here and has performed in our town, I'll be he and some other local people with extra money on their hands might be willing to keep this place open like foofighter says.
Is it really too late or are they still accepting donations?

Subduing an opponent by force can be a very positive thing if it is done in self defense.
I've also heard people like Joe Rogan (UFC commentator/comedian/philosopher) talk about how he has seen people with violent tendencies go through martial arts or fight training and it helps to get out their violent tendencies and they come out of it with more restraint and focus.

No, advocating the war on drugs that leads to Mexican Mafiosos in the street and not recognizing that your philosophy, not mine, is the cause of all of the violence - and that your answer to that is creating a tyrannical police state that will very likely affect my rights - I have a huge problem with that philosophy, yes.
Do you recognize that abolishing liquor in the earlier part of the last century created a huge violent underground black market? This is all very simple logic. I can't for the life of me figure out why you people make the same statements over and over and never refute any actual logic given.

I would like to reference the following article in relation to the topic of government maintaining lists in order to later inflict tyranny from my above posting:

Stockies, maybe I can help explain because there are a lot of reasons why many people are opposed to what many others refer to as "common sense gun regulation". I am highly opposed to any type of gun regulations.
Let's begin with the future. The future is now.
People have built 3D printers that can print out all of the parts needed for a gun, or another 3D printer. But the 3D printers can also print out an assortment of legal and useful tools and other items. That means people are going to be able to manufacture their own guns in their own home soon. The amount of invasiveness that will be required to enforce gun laws when people can make them at home is going to be unacceptable from a civil liberties standpoint.
Enforcing gun regulations requires a few things:
1. Enforcement, which requires violence
2. Government lists of persons
3. Breaches of privacy
Let's talk about natural rights. Everybody has the natural right to defend themselves and their property against aggressors. Guns do a good job of this because guns are an equalizer. A 5'1" 100 lb. woman can defend herself against a 6'4" 250 lb. man with a gun. Crime is lower in areas where there is less gun control because criminals know that their victims may have a gun. The most amount of gun violence occurs in areas with very strict gun control and NO GUN zones. This is because perpetrators know that victims will not be armed.
Which brings me to a major point - criminals don't follow the law, criminals will always have guns. Gun control does a horrible job at taking away guns from criminals, it does a much better job at taking away guns from peaceful non-violent citizens.
Let's get back to natural rights. I should have the right to defend myself and I don't think that I should have to put my name on a government list to do so. I believe our government has the infrastructure setup to store millions and millions of people in FEMA camps like in the Holocaust. I believe our government has become very dangerous. I want to be able to defend myself and I don't want to be on a government list where they may come and place me in a FEMA camp because of my political beliefs or because I own a gun.
Lastly, you should tell all of your government regulation mumbo jumbo to this guy:
What a hero.

Well Stockies it sounds like the main problem is that the students are receiving services that they are not asking for. Once we deal with that problem we may find that the distribution of funds for various services to various areas of the city and/or county may in fact leave IV behind in the dust.
So IV may have additional costs in law enforcement services, but they may be getting less funding for road repairs, infrastructure improvements and other services that may be provided in greater amounts to other portions of the county/city. Especially if you look at it on a per capita basis since IV has so many people. But if you want to be more fair I guess you could calculate how much taxes are coming from IV and how much are coming from the rest of the area.
But really I see this type of stuff mostly as an exercise in old people complaining about young people. It's a timeless classic.
