I don't know the situation, but I'd bet the gun is a car weapon (as opposed to a carry weapon) and is always stuck between the seat and console. If it wasn't it in a holster fitted for concealed carry then he probably didn't have it on him while actually drinking, so he did comply with his own law. Legally, he did have possession of a loaded gun while drunk and should be punished for it, but depending on how impaired he was he might not have even remembered it was there. Media attention on the presence of a handgun is a red herring. The fact that he chose to DRIVE a 2-ton "weapon" while intoxicated is a different story, however, and if convicted of DUI this "leader" should be stripped of all responsibility and thrown under the jail. Leaders should be held to a higher standard.
Many people (including myself) don't have land lines; only cell phones. If the robber took her cell phone she had no phone of any kind. And assuming either her neighbors weren't home or she was scared and not thinking clearly enough to go to them, probably the quickest way to contact authorities was to use her computer to get her Facebook friends to call the police.
What about the red-light cameras at the following locations:
Central Ave and Bailey/MLK
McCallie Ave and N. Holtzclaw Ave (on Holtzclaw only, no cameras on McCallie)
E. 23rd St. and 4th Ave/S. Kelley St. (on 4th only, no cameras on 23rd)
I have personally observed cameras at all these locations, but I cannot verify if they are active and giving tickets. Maybe a helpful volunteer could intentionally run the light and let us know if they get a ticket.
