How College Student Criminals Make Schools More Expensive More and more young Americans are finding out about the overwhelming burden of college student loan debt. Even those who don't go into debt, though, still see large portions of their income go towards funding their education. What many students don't realize is that there are usually "junk fees" tacked onto their cost of education. These are fees that are added on by colleges, often misleadingly, that are not directly related to tuition. Every college student will likely experience paying off these fees, but it surprises many to know that issues related to substance abuse and crime that occurs on college campuses can actually increase the amount of fees they face. TMZ News Story: Texas A&M Football Players Busted for Weed Students go to college to receive an education, and rising college tuition is already a sore point with many of them--especially when fees unrelated to education are tacked on to the bill. There's often resentment about paying for something they don't feel they participate in, particularly those pertaining to school athletic fees. Some feel that if they are not sports fans or attend games that they are paying junk fees for something that is unnecessary for education. With that in mind, it is even harder to swallow the recent story of three Texas A&M football jocks that made a series of stupid decisions that was reported recently in a TMZ news story. The TMZ story reported that two Texas A&M football...

  Law enforcement technology is constantly evolving. Whereas drunk driving tests once involved blowing into a football bladder, technology has now led to flashlights that can detect the presence of alcohol in a person's breath. One thing that seems to be a constant, however, is the use of police dogs.  Man's best friend has continuously proven to be an essential asset in the world of law enforcement, and there's no telling how many officers' lives have been saved because of these companions. Unfortunately, these dogs have sometimes been known to "go rogue," and when this happens, innocent bystanders usually catch the worst of it.  Rogue Police Dogs Most peoples' experiences with police dogs is only as extensive as watching episodes of Cops on television. Some individuals, though, have been through the less-than-exciting experience of actually being bitten by these dogs. A quick Google search will show that many of the people attacked by police dogs are actually innocent bystanders, and in some cases, these victims are even young children. While it's true that bites aren't likely to make the local news when the appropriate offender is bitten, it's hard to ignore all of the stories of non-criminals being attacked. Dogs in police K-9 units are supposed to obey all of their handler's commands. It's when they ignore these orders that serious issues can arise. In fact, there have been cases where one particular police dog has been involved in several wrongful bite situations. Sadly, this isn't uncommon. This is because the...

Vacations And DUI: Why They Are On The Rise Young individuals on the cusp of adulthood often feel like they are invincible. They relish in their newfound freedom and the ability to go anywhere their imaginations and budgets will allow. When they embark on what is supposed to be a fun-filled vacation, however, these young travelers sometimes engage in behaviors that jeopardize their financial and legal futures. As they wonder why they and their peers statistically are at a higher risk of incurring charges like DUIs while on vacation, these fledgling adults may soon realize that these activities invite the scrutiny and wrath of law enforcement. Underage Drinking Despite being old enough to take a vacation without their parents, many people in this age group are not quite old enough yet to drink or buy alcoholic beverages. Even so, they may feel more emboldened while on vacation and break the local drinking laws by using a fake identification to get into clubs, buy drinks, or frequent liquor stores. However, law enforcement in popular tourist hotspots often are on high alert for such infractions. If they are caught with alcohol without being the proper legal age, these individuals could face heavy monetary fines or even jail time. Intoxicated Driving People who are old enough to drink are not immune from breaking the law. In fact, many tourists sometimes drink too much, so caught up are they in their pursuit of fun and relaxation. Just as at home, intoxicated drivers could suffer significant...

Every time a person visits a business they have an expectation that they will be safe while visiting the property. It's when businesses fail to meet this obligation that they face the risk of a lawsuit by the person who was injured. One of the most common types of injuries that individuals face while at a business involves slipping and falling, and this goes far beyond falling down as a result of a wet floor.  Forms of Negligence Patrons are often warned when terrain is hazardous, as many businesses now utilize signs when floors are wet or surfaces are uneven. It is when these indicators aren't present that business may find themselves in danger of a lawsuit, and examples of these scenarios can include: Elevators that make rapid takeoff or stopping movements and shake suddenly Stairs that are in disrepair and create a tripping or falling hazard for those traversing them Indoor and outdoor surfaces that are uneven or pose a stumbling hazard due to inadequate maintenance or repair Pursuing a Case Those who are victims of a slip and fall accident will often have both immediate and long-term injuries that result. These injured areas are often located in the neck, back, or legs of the individual, and can sometimes be present in all three areas at once. Since many of these injuries don't ever fully heal, the injured person is often tasked with finding a way to pay for their ongoing medical bills, and this is where a civil lawsuit...
