Why are tax dollars being used to have police block off hwy 46 when ever one of this churches services end. I am sick of my day being interrupted by this the whole hyway coming to a complete stop until their parking lot is empty. We can't have God in our schools govt. buildings etc. Why are my tax dollars wasted on this they aren't anything special and can wait until there is an opening in traffic to pull out like the rest of us.

If you're referring to Thursday night, which I'm sure you are, Riley elementary had their anual Christmas play at the church. And before you go crying about a church being used for a public school event, I can assure you that the play, setting and song choices were completely secular. Why don't you do a little research before you go crying about being put out. How long did you have to wait? 5 minutes? I for one would like to thank the church for their contribution to the community. You're probably one of the people that can't figure out why God let the massacre in Conn. take place, right? Yet you jump on the opportunity to slam God the first chance you get. Man, you could fill the mighty Wabash with tears.

That makes it much better. Now our tax dollars are being used not only to stop traffic but to pay teachers to hold a school event at a church. And I could care less as long as they don't hold up my day either. So there rent a cop. The original poster has a legit right to complain. And so do I if ya don't like it move to China with the other communists. I bet you are trying to figure out how you can take our guns because of that school massacre you speak of. I guess rent a cops don't have to pledge to uphold the constitution do they. What an idiot.

To rent a cop:... I belueve you are an idiot. Nobody is saying anything against god or schools and churches intermingling together, actually i rhink its a hood thing. I drive for a living and i was stopped by one of the 3 squad cars stopping traffic, not fir 5 mins but about 15 mins. My run is time sensitive, this was a travesty. Talk about the seperation of church and state. Utilizing tax dollars and on duty law enforcement to halt the working motoring public for the furtherance of the religious rite. What next? Will these law enforcement officers be stopping me asking for my weapons?

So that big cross in the parking lot is secular huh. So if a big satanic church opens up next year with a pentagram in their lot it's ok to have it there if the satanic church offers the use of their facilities. I bet rent a cop would be the first on here bitchin.

What about holding it in a Hindu temple with a statue of a three headed elephant with six arms in the parking lot next year. I mean we have a lot of them owning gas stations and such around here lately shouldn't they also feel at home going to a SCHOOL FUNCTION. Where does it all end there
Rent a cop.

So if an accident had occurred how long do you suppose the highway might have been closed to all traffic? Police would have been on duty so 15 minutes of traffic supervision to prevent an accident seems worthwhile.

Well why no place a cop at every intersection in the country to prevent accidents. When do people have to use their common sense and pull out when traffic permits. There are people going to work, truckers with timed loads etc. why should we be made late for a school function which shouldn't have been held at a church in the first place. Has anyone complained to Tanoose about this crap.

I got stopped by this on Thursday and lost about 20 min while waiting and my company accepts no excuses. I just get docked it does make me upset reading this and finding out the real reason I got docked in pay. It should have never happened in the first place. Is the school corp going to make up my lost wages. I'll bet not.

The reality is that a hard working, law abiding, tax paying citizen is set aside by politics, special interest, and a good ole boy system. And government / law enforcement wonders why the general public is so untrusting and eager for change. One day, god willing, the general public will rise up and demand change. those guilty of orchestrating and maintaining these semantics will be held accountable.

if you can prove lost wages you could probably file suit they not only cost you money they deprived you of your freedom of movement. If it is unconstitutional they may have even violated your civil rights. Not sure but ya could look into it by contacting a lawyer. That's the only way this crap ever gets a stop put to it.

If that's because you are salary then yes you do and anyway you are a representative of the school. So it really doesn't matter. Refuse to show for the program and then say that when they try and fire you.

For the same reason that tax dollars were spent to put up a stop light at 13th & Washington. Tax-exempt organized "religion" needs our tax dollars.

Hopefully someone will contact a lawyer. It didn't cost me any $$$ but it sure was annoying even more so after finding out the rest of the story.

They stop traffic for parades, some funerals, emergency vehicles and turtles crossing the road.

Thats not the point a SCHOOL function shouldn't be held at the church so there should have been no need to stop traffic on a busy hwy and cost taxpayers unneeded delay and lost $$$. I didn't appreciate it especially after hearing the reason for it. Read the entire post it even cost a trucker money in his pay. We have rules for a reason I'm expected to obey them why not the school corp. It would never have been needed if they hadn't held a school event at a church and
Law Enforcement could have been paid to patrol our neighborhoods instead. All around waste of taxpayers money and time.
