Arkansas HB 1236 – Can We Protect Freedom and Family?

Arkansas – There is a very old saying that still circulates today that states, “If you give an inch, they will take a mile.”  It would be wise for Arkansas legislators, voters, and the courts to keep this old saying in mind while considering HB 1236 (ftp://www.arkleg.state.ar.us/Bills/2017R/Public/HB1236.pdf).  The bill would essentially make it a crime for anyone to distribute a video or dash cam recording of a police officer being killed in the line of duty.  The concept is easy to understand.  The video is released either by the department, a freedom of information request, or a copy slips into the media.

The Needed Connection of Arkansas High to Arkansas Stadium

Texarkana, AR- Anyone who has ever attended Arkansas High and had to walk from the school to the stadium or from the stadium to the school knows the dangers faced by a student.  While students are fortunate to have a stadium so close to the main high school campus, they are also hindered by no direct, safe route to walk to the stadium. Nix Creek effectively blocks any direct access to the stadium for students.  The best students can do is walk down Nix Creek trail and then cross the bridge on 18th street where they are exposed to traffic from both directions.  During game nights this traffic can range anywhere from a few cars to hundreds of cars flooding up and down the street.
