4th of July Drunk Driving Crack Down

Franklin County Deputies will be cracking down on drunk driving over the 4th of July weekend. Impaired driving contributes to nearly 30 percent of all Missouri traffic fatalities. Last year, 244 people were killed and 885 seriously injured in crashes involving an impaired driver. That’s why the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office will join other Missouri law enforcement agencies to crack down on drunk driving July 3-7th. Consequences of drunk driving include jail time, loss of driver license, or being sentenced to use ignition interlocks. Insurance rates go up. Other financial hits include attorney fees, court costs, loss of time at work, and the potential loss of a job.

OFF THE CUFF with Diane Jones

August 9, 2014, will forever be marked in the history books as the date Michael Brown was shot by a Ferguson police officer.

It is the aftermath of that event, however, which history will forever remember. The protesters, the looters, the agitators, the Hands Up Don't Shoot movement, the dramatic announcement of the grand jury, the buildings up in flames. In the process, the community and image of Ferguson was destroyed.
