"During the day when most of us are trying to get to class or to work doesn’t seem right. Using these officers to enforce unnecessary traffic violations seems excessive when a couple of officers on foot could perform the same tasks." Do you mean you would rather have officers on foot to do this because you can get away easier than if they were on bikes. Or do you mean its ok for you to break the laws of this country and state because you are a student and or going to work. When is it ever ok to break the law. These police officers are charged with up holding all the laws of this land, they did not make the laws. Maybe if you would follow the rules then you would not get stop. You more than likely are complaining because you have been on the receiving end of some tickets yourself. So you think its ok to post your opinion in a publication to rant and rave on police while your the one breaking the laws. The rest of us are not getting stop because we follow the laws. It's not hard, it's mostly common sense which you apparently don't have.

Well War Eagle to you too

Was at Disney today and came across an AU fan. I gave him a War Eagle and he responded the same. I didn't yell it and he did not yell it but just a normal War Eagle passing another person. There was a man near us and he must have heard us and he lets out a yell "Roll Tide". People all around looked at him and I decided that I would say something to him. I said that I had heard that there is a difference between saying War Eagle and roll tide and that difference is that War Eagle is a greeting between two people, it means that they have a common interest and that the two are sharing pride in a University. He said what does roll tide mean then? I said that the two of us AU fans were greeting each other and you yelling role tide was trying to make yourself feel better and trying to put us down. You were also yelling about a football team not an University. He looked at me stunned and I just turned around and walked away giving a smile to man I said War Eagle too. He chuckled and went on his way as well.

What exactly is an unnecessary violation? Did you even attempt to find out what they are doing there? To the best of my understanding those officers are bike cops. What would you have them ride? Oh that's right put the two bike cops on foot!! I guess they can put an Inspector Gadget light on their bike helmets and run after cars making siren noises. I feel pretty sure they aren't stopping kids just for going to work or class. How about slowing down, watching for pedestrians and wearing your seat belt and you probably won't get stopped. Let them do the job they were hired to do.

Good to know in this new age of recruiting when schools are pitching trophies and the NFL (No-Fun League) to its players that the Auburn family can hold to some conservative traditions like pie eating and water balloon fights. I know it sure made my 9th birthday fun! GO GET EM COACH!

After reading this article I have to wonder.....what is the point? Is it that you would be ok with "unnecessary violations" if the police are on foot rather than a bicycle or Segway?
