    Student driver and instructor killed in crash

    Two people, including a student driver were killed in a two-car crash in Waterville Township. State troopers say the student driver was at fault.

    The accident happened just after 2:30 p.m. on Monday near the corner of Heller and Neapolis-Waterville Road. Troopers say 16-year old student driver Joseph A. Franks of Swanton, ran a stop sign and was hit by an oncoming car driven by Kathleen Woods of Swanton.

    Both the Franks and his instructor, 48-year-old Thomas P. Smith of Whitehouse were killed.

    Troopers called the entire incident a tragedy.
    You can question whether 9 years old is too young to handle a machine pistol, or whether 16 is too young to handle a vehicle, but accidents are going to happen when you are training young people to do anything. They don't know what the hell they're doing; that's why they need training. If we raised the driving age to 25, then 25 year old would be doing stupid things instead of teenagers, and if you raised the age to handle a machine piston to 18, then this could easily happen to an 18 year old.

      • Just Guess What Ferguson Police Found on Missouri Democrat Who Has Sponsored Several ‘Anti-Gun’ Bills…

        http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2014...nti-gun-bills/

        Missouri state Senator Jamilah Nasheed, a Democrat who has sponsored several “anti-gun” bills in her state, was arrested Monday night during a protest outside of the Ferguson Police Department. However, it’s what police officers found on her that is raising eyebrows.

        Nasheed was carrying a loaded 9mm handgun and extra rounds of ammunition, according to Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson. She also refused to take a breathalyzer test after officers determined she “smelled strongly of intoxicants,” sources told KMOV-TV.

        Nasheed claimed on Tuesday that she was not intoxicated at the time of her arrest and emphasized that she is a legal concealed carry permit holder.

        Police arrested and charged the state senator with failure to obey lawful order of police and manner of walking in the roadway after she and other protesters refused to get out of the street.

        On Tuesday morning, Nasheed said it was a “symbolic arrest” to send a “message to the protesters that we can protest peacefully and that we must protest peacefully and that we want justice for Michael Brown.”

        The National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action has dubbed several pieces of legislation sponsored by Nasheed “anti-gun,” including an amendment that would require gun owners to report a firearm stolen within 72 hours.

        Nasheed also reportedly pushed for a bill that would have required any “parent or guardian of a child who attends a public, private, or charter school shall notify, in writing, the superintendent of the school district, or the governing body of a private school or charter school, that such parent or guardian owns a firearm within thirty calendar days” of enrollment.

                            • I couldn't tell in the video. It looked to me like he pulled his hand out of his pocket before the gun fired but I could be wrong. There's no sound.
