You point out s few bad apples out of hundreds or thousands. The police make hundreds of millions of stops EACH YEAR. So WHO is being the richard. Again look in the mirror, maybe that's why YOU have problems during a police contact.

And all your examples all got away with murder. Seem their traffic stops didn't help prevent anything.

Yet they don't get arrested 3 times a day. So there in lies the problem with your argument. You just happened to get CAUGHT a few more times, and you didn't like it, and you probably took it out on the officer when you got stopped. Freedom is the about responsibility also. You get caught, be man/woman enough to admit it, and get over it. YOU broke the law. The officer is just doing their…

Who arrested him? Another Police Officer. You just proved my point. They hire the people that apply, can't know how they will do until they are hired. Plus with the Federal Lawsuits they have to be VERY careful who they disqualify before hiring, until they mess up. The liberal PC bullshit, causes a lot of the problems. BUT it is not up to the citizen during a stop to decide anything. The citizen…

So, let me get this right. You want a LAW, that says you can violate another law? If you feel so strongly, push to get rid of the laws YOU don't like. There are reasons, that you have no idea about, why the police would stop a vehicle for a "minor" traffic violation. Maybe it is your ATTITUDE that talks you into a ticket. Also, if the police officer ONLY writes the minor violation, when he gets…

Quincy Compressor management in town this week

3 months, 1 week ago by Bob Gough

Quincy Compressor management will be in Quincy Tuesday and Wednesday for discussing the possibility of keeping their Quincy facility open and saving more than 150 jobs.

Mayor Kyle Moore, GREDF president Marcel Wagner and representatives from Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity, the Workforce Investment Board of Western Illinois and the International Machinists Union Local 822 spoke at a news conference this morning at Quincy City Hall.

Last month, Quincy Compressor announced it was considering closing the plant and moving operations to its U.S. headquarters in Bay Minette, Alabama. The plant was founded in Quincy in 1920 years ago.

In 2002, Goodrich Corporation (now UTC Aerospace Systems) spun off its Engineered Industrial Products business segment into a new company, EnPro Industries.The spinoff consisted of businesses that were originally owned by Coltec Industries, which had been purchased by Goodrich in 1998. Quincy Compressor was part of that spinoff

In 2010, Atlas Copco acquired Quincy Compressor from EnPro. Quincy Compressor has approximately 400 employees in Quincy, Alabama and China. 

Moore said the task force has a proposal prepared to present to Quincy Compressor. Wagner said not many communities get the opportunity to save a plant like this as many companies just leave. 

Moore said he couldn't comment about the specifics of the proposal. Jacqui Bevelheimer of DCEO said the state could provide tax and training incentives.

Ross Miller of the Machinists Union said he anticipated the company would seek a reduction in pay and benefits. He said he believed those benefits are about 30 percent less per employee in Alabama than in Illinois.
