But we can get stoned now, makes perfect sense !! You could always just drive like responsibleRead More people and keep your speed safe, there are thousands of people missing limbs or worse wishing they never were involved in a crash by either there own fault or the result of some balloon knot, Thanks for keeping us safe officers

Lock em up. Throw away the key - we can't allow gang members to terrorize the community.

Do you know the difference between us and Scandinavia/Iceland? I would say, but I would be called aRead More racist.
Scott Donald April 14, 2014 at 11:29 am
You're absolutely right: Scandanavia has much stronger gun restrictions than we do, and they haveRead More much less violent crime. Couldn't agree with you more.

There aren't enough over-21 ho's to go around? They have to bring in helpless children for the bigRead More macho sports nuts? I will never be able to see ANY sports event without thinking of this. It's everywhere. Why is that?

What I do not understand is ……this guy is in the court room and just got sentenced,Read More and was therefore (or should have been) in the custody of court officers/police ……How the heck did he get away in the first place and why did they not catch him before he got into his truck. Someone needs to take a look at that.

JERRY S. The breath test starter interlock system doesn't really do anu good. I have a sister inRead More law that had one on her car. When she was driving while under the influence she just made her young daughter blow into the devise and " WALA!"

It's so sad that such a beautiful woman & mother, snuffed out by some jealous idiot, this isRead More happening to much these days, people just don't walk away quietly into the sunset anymore.

Any crime reduction, be it 1 or 2 percent is a good news. I salute those places with less or evenRead More zero crime rates. But for places with high rates crimes then everyone should be more vigilant. As for me I always make sure that my family are safe, I came across this safety application and just wanna share this, http://safekidzone.com/?a_aid=51b8ea0f4164a

'Any crime reduction ... is a good news.' +++ indeed +++ but in any event, once all the concealRead More carry gun nuts are armed there will be no more crime :) +++ thanks for the link.

Thank you, Mom for having her in her car seat!
Powdertowner March 31, 2014 at 02:23 pm
Perhaps Mom should have had it the car seat strapped in correctly.
Victor Marshall April 10, 2014 at 11:31 am
@powdertowner - My thoughts exactly. This could've had a very different outcome without that carRead More seat being strapped in properly. Very lucky little girl indeed.

The 17 year old is a minor. Why is his name published?
Alice Pickett March 29, 2014 at 11:48 pm
It was not published. Only the 19 year old was named. Please read carefully.

The attacker is a bully and his parents were fully aware of it. As a parent of a non physicallyRead More violent bully, you know when your child is a bully because he bullies his siblings. I used to get complaints from parents of frightened children about my son all the time. My son was finally cured of his bullying ways when another bully punched him with brass knuckles on. Well wishes to the Egan family. This little boy did not deserve this. Nobody does.
Omar Monroe March 31, 2014 at 07:57 am
If thats the case then Melissa Hickson, he deserved what he got, my neighbors daughter was bulliedRead More for a long time, the bullies would be so bad that they even followed her home, waiting down the street to catch her outside, she told her parents but they didn't do anything, when she finally had enough and fought back, she was expelled, and had to go to alternative school.
stephen m george jr mpa March 31, 2014 at 02:36 pm
Something important to think about regarding this situation is ...almost every kid perpetrating aRead More school mass shooting WAS a victim of bullying ...and they had enough. So, let's just brush this crime under the rug and pretend it didn't happen ...and see what happens next.

It is only a matter of time before these Thugs approach the wrong person in Midtown and get Capped!Read More In Miami the Cuban cops are not afraid of beating the hell out of these people. Cubans are not afraid to be called racist like the cops in Atlanta are because they are definitely not racist and they do not see color, but will do whatever it takes to clean up crime. Most people in Miami that commit crimes get their butts kicked and are severely beaten instead of jail and it works. Less over crowding of jails.

Move to Seattle if you want to see police beat the shit out of people! Seriously, the Seattle PD isRead More not known for their friendly public relations and if you're a thug, you're going to get your ass handed to you on a platter. Unfortunately, many, many people in the Seattle area are wimpy and believe that if we all sit around the campfire and sing "Kumbaya", all the world's problems will disappear and there will be peace and brotherhood throughout the land. Meaning, they think citizens shouldn't own handguns or use those handguns to protect themselves, family, property, etc. However, I am still going to move back there because I am really tired of all the thuggery down here in the South and all the reverse racism. I've actually had some black folks tell me that ALL white people are racists and that ONLY the white race is racist. Riiiiight.
