A Case for Calm in the Gregory Gunn Murder

Aaron C. Smith, the Montgomery police officer who shot and killed Gregory Gunn, has been charged with murder. The incident occurred on February 25th at approximately 3:20 a.m. in the Mobile Heights neighborhood. 59-year-old Gunn was said to be walking to his mother’s house after visiting some friends. Aaron Smith, patrolling the community after a recent surge in crime, viewed Gunn’s behavior as suspicious and approached him. As Smith began to pat Gunn down to check for weapons, Gunn fled from the officer. From this point, however, the details become murky.

 The Department of Justice issued a press release on October 6, 2016, stating that it is conducting an investigation into conditions in Alabama’s prisons for men. This investigation comes after years of severe overcrowding, chronic under-staffing, strikes and riots. The recent murder of a Holman correctional officer shone a spotlight on the intolerable conditions faced by both the inmates and the staff.

Equifax sustained a breach of their system exposing 143 million individuals personal information.  It has been reported that the information obtained by the hackers included Social Security numbers, birthdates, and addresses.  If you believe your identity has been hacked call us today and talk with one of our lawyer.

The breach appears to have occurred months ago, but Equifax only learned about it July 29 and still waited more than a month to publicly disclose the incident. In the meantime, the company was creating a website,, which allows consumers to check and see if their personal information could have been impacted by the breach, according to the Washington Post. Regardless of whether a consumer was one of the 143 million people affected or not, they can opt to enroll in a free credit monitoring service through TrustedID Premier.

All Terrain Vehicles, more commonly known as ATVs, can be safe when used responsibly but pose inherent dangers in many circumstances. The Consumer Product Safety Commission states: “ATVs are the fifth deadliest product that we oversee,” resulting 700 deaths and 136,000 emergency room visits each year.

ATV Injuries and Death

ATVs are heavy machines designed to handle rough terrain. When hitting an object or driven on rough or steep areas, they can overturn or throw people from the vehicle, causing severe injuries or death. More people are driving ATVs, either legally or illegally, on paved roads and highways, which has resulted in a 10% increase in ATV highway deaths this year (2016).

“Whiplash” is basically soft tissue damage to the neck or upper back; while you can get whiplash on a ride, while cycling or even while playing sports, the most common cause is an automobile accident. A car that is going in one direction and comes to a sudden, violent stop causes your body to stay in place, while your head whips forward, painfully overextending the neck. Whiplash can occur in a rear end accident too, even if your car is stationare; the sudden forward motion can jar your neck and cause damage and pain that lasts for months. On another part of the body, this type of injury could be called a strain or sprain.
