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!"

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 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.

Overnight crime would be dealt a shattering blow. We suffer to walk the unsafe streets. Until I askRead More my self that we should give it some thought to prioritize our safety. I heard this from a friend about this mobile phone safety where in they can track us through precise private GPS location. Whenever it happen that we may go through danger zone places, they will keep us aware. For we wouldn't know any dangerous type of human beings might be around our parameters. Nowadays to be aware is to be a live. You can never trust anybody. Here, check it http://safekidzone.com/?a_aid=52f12f7275422

Sounds like to kill a mocking bird. Just think what the out come would be if the jury had anotherRead More shot at zimmerman or there was a few blacks on the jury?
erie March 28, 2014 at 08:00 am
Shaira Leah Gomez I agreed already with what you post. Why not just put chips in kids or betterRead More yet chips in people so the police can tract them? Again if the lady was in to drugs than we must take a sec. look at the case. Shaira Leah Gomez

Viewing, possessing, distributing, and/or creating child porn is a serious crime, and for goodRead More reason. The children in the photos are being sexually used and abused. This causes lifelong pain and suffering for those innocent children. Also, it is not uncommon for those who do possess child porn to sexually abuse children too. So let's hope that anyone who may have knowledge or may have been harmed by Kevin Hickey, will find the courage to come forward and contact law enforcement, no matter how long ago it happened. Your silence only hurts, and by speaking up there is a chance for healing, exposing the truth, and therefore protecting others.

It is truly a shame. Shameful to people of color, shameful to the city. Yet the Bible is beingRead More fulfilled. Everybody needs to get Jesus. We've got to turn this trend around.
