Found this AP article today which addresses kids killed on Halloween related to traffic:
Halloween can be deadly for pedestrians, traffic study says
-43% higher death risk on October 31
-608 deaths on 42 Halloweens
-55 deaths of kids 4-8 yrs old
-CDC has similar data in their study (’75-’96)
-Alcohol is a factor
-Canadian study of USA data
Study is in JAMA Pediatrics with more info and data, Pedestrian Fatalities Associated With Halloween in the United States,
Take this data, NARSOL, et al, and compare it against registrant data for Halloween next time this point needs to be made to those who hammer registrants on Halloween.

I think it’s safe to assume that Officer Alisha James was not among the community supervision officers giving up their Halloween to harass the 3300 registrants that posed no threat in the first place.

It is most definitely a gimmick. Here in Texas they had us all sit in a community center from 5:30pm – 9:00pm. A fire alarm went off at one point and they couldn’t get it shut off for an hour and wouldn’t let us leave. Thankfully it was a false alarm but all the same.Not to mention we had a nasty storm rolling through at the time so i’m pretty sure no one was trick or treating anyway. I’m just thankful they didn’t try and reschedule trick or treating and force us to come back the next day or that weekend.
