It shouldn't be illegal. If someone flashes their lights at me, I slow down even though IRead More don’t speed anyway. Isn't that the end result we are looking for? The police use illegal tactics all the time. Cops have told me that if they want to stop someone they just say they looked suspicious or weaved in their lane. How can you expect people to respect someone who acts no better than they do?

I live more to the west, Carroll County. Love to ride there, Frederick, Washington, southern PA.Read More D.C. is horrible! Happy I got to ride in Rolling Thunder though :) When I take a putt or a group does the same, we avoid the major highways like the plague..yes..even in Carroll. Thank you for your service to our country! I mean that sincerely.

I agree! Do they want to accuse them of doing something wrong?

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.

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.

Perhaps Mom should have had it the car seat strapped in correctly.

@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.

Doc March 19, 2014 at 09:05 pm
LOL LOL From your comment I doubt if you have the education to even earn $30,000 a year, much lessRead More $3 mllion lol lol. One man earning $3 million a year in salary for coaching football in the NCAA or NFL is OUTRAGEOUS and INSANE!!!! The majority of those you referred to as criminals (euphemism for Blacks!!) are "student/athletes" with a 95% EMPHASIS on ATHLETE! They take these mostly low income kids out of their environment and put them in an environment of major colleges and expect them to survive on $75 stipend, when a good percentage of them come from homes where their parents can't afford to send them $75 a month. They are expected to partake in student life, and maybe go to the student union and buy a burger and fries for not less than $8-$10, not to mention the cost of a movie, or getting a new pair of jeans. What would be so wrong with providing each student athlete a decent stipend of $500 a month, from a program that brings in probably over $100,000,000 annually? Its these kids that are EARNING that $$$$$. Quit YOUR HYPOCRISY about earning an education!! Thats THE LAST THING that 90% of these kids will earn at UGA or any other major NCAA Division 1 institution, the last thing. They'll sooner earn a prison sentence before they learn anything academically. They earn the university over $100 million a year and generous you refer to some lousy $40,000 tuition fee that is not going to benefit most of these kids (research graduation rates for student/athletes). Whats pissin you off is that these Negroes are getting the $75 a week. Eat your heart out!! LOL LOL Go buy a UGA football or basketball ticket for $150 and enjoy the players!! Or, get rid of them and have your kid play!!! lol lol lol

Nathan Blair March 20, 2014 at 08:26 am
When are we going to stop blaming the poor disadvantaged athletes? Let's lay the blame squarelyRead More where it belongs, at the feet of the parents that did not raise them properly, or the society that continues to allow such actions without recourse. Used to in the not too distant past, if a student used someone else's ideas, or copied printed material it was called plagiarism. Students used to be expelled for it, but today, they are given a smack on the hand, a lower grade in the course, maybe a failing grade for that class and being allowed to repeat the class. Unless we come down hard on the crime as it is committed and stop delaying consequences things of this nature will continue to be more and more prevalent in society. For the double dealing check thieves, oh, I know, lets make them politicians.

After half were targeted, the other half would vanish. Word would get out in that community that the Atlanta market is closed. I love the constitution. But these kids need to be protected too.

With the utmost respect for Usher Raymond and his Family I do however feel it is inappropriate andRead More insensitive to post a photo of Usher as the highlight in this story and not the Little boy Kyle that was the victim of this tragedy. I know its all about sensationalism but i also would be livid if that was my son and they post a pic of the Step father just because he is a famous entertainer. Could we not see a picture of the Family maybe or a picture of Kyle AKA(Kile). I am a fan of Usher so its not a bash against him at all.
