FRIDAY, Aug. 5
A1 PROPOSALS

GM EARNINGS UP 89 PERCENT
@ With a lower cost structure and higher prices for new models, General Motors Co. reported net income increased 89 percent to $2.5 billion, or $1.54 per fully diluted share, marking the company’s sixth consecutive profitable quarter as the company continued to recover from its bankruptcy two years ago.
“GM’s investments in fuel economy, design and quality are paying off around the world as our global market share growth and financial results bear out,” chairman and chief executive officer Dan Akerson said Thursday. In the second quarter of 2010, GM’s net income attributable had earned $1.3 billion, or 85 cents per fully-diluted share.

MAN TO STAND TRIAL FOR DAUGHTER’S DEATH
@ An Oxford police officer testified Thursday that Robert Kelly walked into the station the morning of May 9 to report an assault. When asked who committed it, Kelly told the officer, “I did.”
A judge ordered Kelly, 52, to stand trial on one charge of first-degree, premeditated murder for the death of his 20-year-old daughter, Megan Roberts. Investigators contend Roberts was asleep in her bed when Kelly entered her room and beat her in the face and head with an aluminum baseball bat.

I came across your blog while searching the internet for Police recruitment websites. Anyway, there are many accounts of police brutality and abuse that are publish online and on printed media that further mar the reputation of the police force. However, to you as an individual who is considering into joining the police force, it is really worthwhile to become a police officer.
