Help us stop buzzed driving this Fourth of July
Eve's Wine 101
Driving buzzed can turn celebration into tragedy in an instant. With July 4th approaching, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is reminding people of the cost of buzzed driving over the holiday. In 2012, 179 people were killed in crashes over the holiday period. Of those deaths, 44 percent were in crashes that involved alcohol. The only red, white, and blue we want anyone to see this holiday should be from the fireworks, not from cops and ambulances.

Teens take aim at career as officers
The Indiana Gazette
Dozens of other teens are getting a head start on a law enforcement career by becoming Explorers. The voluntary program offers discipline, instruction and direction through volunteer work, ride-alongs and hands-on training. The group trained with BSO SWAT members on how to handle live-shooter situations including clearing rooms, loading guns and hitting targets. They trained in the same place and used some of the same gear — including the practice Glock guns that shoot bullets with paint inside — that the BSO's SWAT team uses. "We try to make it as real as possible," said Deputy Mike Brady, who helped the teens wrap their hands properly and showed them how to load a magazine into the gun.

Technology and the bystander effect: A crippling combination
By Christina Nava
Many people don't understand where to draw the line when it comes to using technology. They will remain glued to it, even at the expense of another person's safety. This has become an increasing problem throughout the world — especially in accident and crime scenes where the misuse of technology has made its unwelcome presence. On June 24, a video surfaced of a mother getting beaten outside by a female co-worker while bystanders looked on and recorded it with their cellphones. The only person who tried to help was her 2-year-old son who can be seen in the video kicking the co-worker as she attacks his mother. What's even more appalling is the woman then threatened to attack the child as well. Still, no one stepped in to help either one of them.
