Horrible. I support self defense, but did he have to shoot the guy 3 times? If he would have justRead More shot him once in the leg, I think it would have stopped him. This sounds like an over aggressive cop. He was the one who cut the guy off which caused the road rage in the first place.

I would take her child from her give her supervised visitation and then make sure she gets fixed toRead More were she can bare no more !!! The sad thing is the woman probably don't care to much about anything but herself and the one who will suffer and grieve will be the small child . I feel sorry for the child !!! I hope that he feels loved because I was a child who had hard working parents who were never home and I was raised by my sisters who were 8 and 9 years older then me and was looked at back then as a blocker from them doing what they wanted to do . I was filled with vodka and drugs by my one sister so I would be knocked out so they could bring there boyfriends in and I would not know what happened and I always felt that no one loved me it was a bad feeling . I can only imagine what this poor kid is going thru if they took him away from his Mom . Its hard on little ones that don't realize what's going on .

I never knew that a person who wants his country to do there job and get illegal infiltrators out ofRead More our country was a hate crime !!! No matter how you slice it this is the United States of America . No other country allows people to just pack up and move in to there country without being documented . Look at all the other foreign countries that kill people for crossing there borders they don't call them racists . I call them protective of what is theirs. What is this county called know Base cant touch me like a kids game ? We need to take some lessons from other countries and grow our balls back and not give a shit what others think of us and start gathering these people up and sending them home . I would start out by legally documenting that they are here and then give them a eviction notice and if they get caught here after a certain time I would arrest them and send them back home . If they misplace a few families then word will get around and it will give them the incentive to leave . Let them do what every other country has to do and fight for there freedom and there right to a uncorrupt government . We are going by what the drug cartels tell us what to do because after all most South American Government official's are tied in with them .

I was under the impression that all sorts of weird countries take-in 1000's of refugees. As ARead More Christian nation, we can't house Cristian toddlers. The statement if their prints r illegals,they r. Uh,orphans don't have parents. If your children were orphans, would u want them forced into murderous gangs?,raped or left to die in the dessert. Maybe u people r not Christians so I respect your right to feel hatred toward children, but painting graffiti is a crime. Actually, it's a gang-type crime. that some of u fear these toddlers will teach your children. I bileve children look at their parents, so lead them the way you'd like them to go.As far as the language thing. I would like to learn Spanish to help teach English. I don't recall many violent immigrants learning Native American, when we stole their land.Actually, sadly people calling themselves Christian (including) Columbus tortured Natives in their own country, if they didn't learn English

This situation is very sad! While I completely side with the victim and his family that the blink isRead More a strong indicator he identified correct suspect, I find it very difficult to interfere with someone's rights. Fingers crossed that additional evidence in the case can support guilt so that the defendant gets his sentence fairly.

Returning the dog to the owner is as bad as releasing the mom on bail who left both a dog and a 7yoRead More child in a hot car while she went shopping. I called the police last year when I spotted a poor dog $tuck in a locked up window shut truck. The owner was in Target. I stayed and snapped pics, then posted it on facebook as documentation. So many people looked and did nothing. It took 15 min for cops to show but it felt like hours. I wonder if its legal for bystanders to bust out windows of vehicles if we see an animal in distress. I wanted to and would have if the doggie looked distressed..

Matthew Silverglate July 9, 2014 at 05:22 pm
Either way, this went to far and is wrong. What I don't get is why, if the kid was knocked out inRead More the first couple seconds, why they had to hold him down and near the end you can see his legs in the air, if he was knocked out they would be on the ground. Also looking at his body language I don't think he threw any Molotov cocktails but when he says he didn't throw rocks he touched his arm, his right arm and since he is right handed this is as psychology would lend to the idea that he is lying, Not to mention the fact that the reported didn't ask him if he threw rocks he said it out of no where... even if he did throw rocks, the police should not be able to do that to him and they need to be punished. I would like to know the full story though, Like lets see the video from the beginning, not half way through.....
