There should be special courts for psych cases just as there are special courts for financial,Read More maritime, juvenile, family and other specific types. This does not mean getting off with any difference in time, but it would mean a more accurate routing and disposition of the individuals. In many cases people do not want to change and would rather be sent to standard jails eventually released and still a danger to society.

Some people do not have even an ember of empathy and need more separation from others and extendedRead More treatment, maybe life long, this may or may not be a case. And, many people just do not have a sense of proportionate response. No matter how trivial the response is irrationally disproportionate.

Nothing Is local on here anymore. Terrible decision to drop local editors for this junk no one caresRead More about. I used to love how we knew everything going on around here from the patch. Now nothing...horrible, horrible decision! !!! I keep hoping someone starts their own patch type of thing. I will be dropping this one.

Right and going by the fine which was 589 times the cost of the soda, BP, that did so much damage toRead More the Gulf should be fined .... 2Billion X 589 .... right, not in the Corporate States of America. That isn't going to happen. How about we apply that same fine to Wall Street .. hell they damn near wrecked the world's economy and have you seen any fines near 589 times the damage done?

Stealing is stealing and it costs all of us. People who eat the grapes at the grocery store withoutRead More paying for them, are stealing! Every item stolen adds up to added costs to everyone. I would have told this person to pay up first before the fine but the fine is always going to be more than the item. The fine is prevent the person from doing it again. Parking in my city overnight on the street used to be a $5 fine and so many people did. They have since raised the fines. This winter those overnight cars caused a lot of problems. They could not remove the snow with cars on the street. People don't think of the consequences before doing something wrong. Yes, people do things that are wrong but why does this it right? The 89 cents is really cheap for a soda so it makes sense that they don't allow refills for free. I have seen people using soda machines with their own cups. It ends up costing me for being honest. Eat me!

This is ridiculous. Let the guy pay on site. Waste of tax payers money. Theft is wrong, but this forRead More some reason seems different as many restaurants do give free refills.

knee jerk April 17, 2014 at 11:05 pm
Yes, cb, I think they could come up with some other catchy names for various crack-downs on the taxRead More paying public. How about "Click-it-or-Ticket Week" or "Text Week" or "No-Right-On- Red Week" or "PBA Week" etc,etc. This way you could stay home the week of your biggest weakness.
Bryan Rivera April 18, 2014 at 07:33 am
cb, maybe they should put speed cameras on every road and ticket everyone that drives 1 mile perRead More hour over the speed limit. Maybe they should take it a step further and monitor every single vehicle for location and speed and store it so they can find patterns in everyone's behavior and ticket even more efficiently. All of that would be completely free of charge, of course, because it doesn't cost anything to constantly police roadways.

In every state where voter ID laws were passed or proposed, there has been provision for those whoRead More don't have a drivers license so they can obtain an ID at no cost. In fact, in most states, any individual can obtain an ID for general purposes. So, no-cost ID's that are acceptable for Voter ID are provision in every state. Cost is not an issue or burden for the voter. It was recently proposed that social security cards be used as voter ID's. As we all know, SS cards are FREE and every AMERICAN must have a SS number. As an aside, I would also note that in most states an adult must have identification on them at all times and must present it when asked to any officer of the law. If not able to produce ID when requested, in most states you can and will be arrested. The bottom line is that IF you are an AMERICAN then you should already have an ID that suffices to prove you are who you say you are in order to vote. If not, they are available for FREE. It is truly odd that, in a world where we must show ID for so many things, anyone would object to showing an ID to carry out their most important privilege as an American - to VOTE.
Sean Hassett April 18, 2014 at 10:54 am
Can anybody who wants to keep the electoral college intact please explain why the vote of someoneRead More from, say, South Dakota, should have more weight that a person from New York?
Big_E April 18, 2014 at 10:59 am
SS cards are not photo IDs though and currently the voter ID laws require "state issued "Read More photo IDs. And we're not talking about cost, but convenience. Do you have to go in person to get these free IDs, or can you get them by mail? Because if it's in person, M-F, 9-5 then yes, that's a burden for poor people who can't get time off to go wait in line. AND NO..most states do NOT have a law requiring you to have ID. Five do. And in almost all states, you have to be suspected of a crime to be arrested. Not having ID is not a crime. I can choose to go out without my wallet if I so choose. And, I can identify myself with a library card, or bank cashing card. Or a credit card. Or a bank check. They all have my name on them. But they are not sufficient to vote.

Stephanie Steele, no, I did not see the report. By your description, it makes it even worse. BecauseRead More the "Adult" that rented the Party Bus had too know exactly what was going to happen. As for my comment above stating "But the main responsibility should of been with the kids themselves." was from a " they should of known" point of view. Legally, it is definitely the parents responsibility.
EG April 16, 2014 at 09:02 pm
Maybe the "kids" just figured out how much they needed to borrow for college on top of theRead More 100+ grand of debt they each inherited from the current generation of idiots. How can you blame them for wanting to get drunk?

So far the only complaint I've heard is about how terrible Reagan is. I really hate to tell you butRead More the so called War on Drugs, whether titled that or not, has been going on for a long time before Reagan or Nixon ever came into office. And the jackass party hasn't been behind in enforcing it either. Oh, Eric WithHolder claims he doesn't want to prosecute marijuana offenses - what the hell is the DEA doing here? And maybe you can tell me who has produced the drugs which, along with education about safe practices, has defeated or brought the AIDS problem under control? No, it's not the labor unions of America, Timothy Leary, or little old Madame Curie in her kitchen lab.

To clarify before someone jumps - the major drug control legislation did come about in 1970 as aRead More reaction to the widespread (both real and perceived) use and abuse of recreational drugs. But opiates were banned from importation, sale and manufacture in 1924 (other than that for medical purposes - morphine is an opiate and a pain reliever which if not administered correctly can and does result in dependency.

Hi there Etaoin, I am equally glad that I no longer work there. I now have a wonderful career inRead More a professional and non-discriminatory workplace. Working at that school was by far the worst professional experience of my career. Most teachers were unqualified, miserable, and jaded educators who spent more time inflating grades and complaining (justifiably so) about the abusive and non-supportive administration than they did investing in their students' academic growth. However, there are some educators there who are exceptional and very dedicated. Sadly, they are a very small minority. It also doesn't hurt that I now make more than twice what I did as a teacher. I also now have comprehensive health-care, a pension fund, as well as paid vacation and sick days. But most importantly, I am treated with the respect that every human being deserves. Although I do miss the small minority of wonderful students whom I had the honor of teaching. (They too were overjoyed to leave. They were no fools.)

Blind Justice never worked at St.Anthonys. "and those who are not practitioners of an outdatedRead More and conservative Catholic religion are treated as inferior." Is a dead giveaway. Her grammar is atrocious. She is a progressive, male hating, religion hating angry muskrat who is using this controversy to bloviate her disdain for mainstream society. If she feels that way about the Catholic faith, why did she work there in the first place? What did she expect?
