Run that by us again?? On what planet would this be the casino's fault?
Dudeindacorner July 22, 2014 at 06:58 pm
Being there for 1 thing. crime in that area has jumped 10 fold since it opened.
MR July 22, 2014 at 08:59 pm
So the fact that the casino is there, is the reason this happened? Now I get it.

The Lawyers are the ones that will get 40% of that settlement. The Hospitals premiums will go up andRead More that cost will be absorbed by everyone who has insurance.. There was no harm to anyone, and I understand no ones face was seen in any of the pictures. So if you are in the middle class and see your health insurance premiums go up once again thank the trial lawyers. Funny how they can get away with it in a country where the laws are written by lawyers.... Kind of like "Hershey's" writing the dietary requirements, really doesn't make sense. .

Proves if you can hurt an animal you will hurt a child. Sadly enough everybody is worried aboutRead More abortion but not about the children neglected & abused. Need tougher laws against child abuse & animal abuse!!!

How can you people say that this woman should be punished? Previous articles in the Patch about allRead More these children forgotten in cars. I told them before 75% kids weren't forgotten they were left in the car because the parents are god damn lazy. When would a normal person leave a 7 year old in a car because the child didn't want to go? Even if it wasn't hot, with all the kooks running around, how could a child even fight them off? These parents disgust me. If I had my way I would bitch slap them back into last week.

honest mistake? everyone knows to check what is acceptable before getting on a flight. It isRead More posted when you book on the net, through travel agents, even at the airport before security. they just thought they could get away with it.

Katherine Maybe we should all pack up and leave for what our for what our ancestors did to thoseRead More people (Not) . We fought for what we have and that may be sad but its true . Its now called the United States of America !!! If anyone is so horrified what there ancestors did and think that we should allow everyone to live here also maybe you should find out were your familys country of origin is and move back there !!!!! This is our country know . And its called survival of the fittest we have acted this way since man was on the earth !!!!! If this country is going to survive we have to forget about these people get them out of here pick up the pieces when they are gone and move on !!!!

When I was younger and raising my children . My kids hung out with other kids when I lived in theRead More city and you would not believe how many children I had to feed because the parents had no food in the house . I must have raised 10 kids no bull and didn't mind feeding them 1 bit. Know that my kids are grown obviously there are not kids running in and out the house anymore but im sure that there are plenty American kids still going hungry in American. I believe its time to set up lots of classes for the trades and get our young men and women in them and teach them before its to late and we loose a whole generation of Americans to welfare and SSI . Look at the methadone clinics here they are loaded with kids from 18 to 40 years old mostly . When our own American youth have nothing to do it leads to addiction point blank !!! They start not caring because there is no work for them they turn to stealing begging on the streets . I have never saw so many young men and woman holding signs of being homeless in my entire life . And the south American illegals brag about how you never see them begging !!! I guess not they are the ones that have taken all the jobs to begin with. When are all of you non Americans who fly the flag on the fourth and every other patriotic holiday get it thru your thick heads that this illegal invasion is harming our children ? Its time for us to load busses trains tractor trailer cattle cars like the ones that are good enough for our troops and get the illegals the hell back were they belong !!!!!!!!!!! We cant walk into any country we want and take up residence and get jobs and just live as we please . We have to have a Visa and we need to be inoculated for disease and go thru strict rules in order to move or even visit a foreign country what makes them so special ? Lets all become true Americans stand by or children and young job seeking youth and get this problem solved . And as far as the misplaced children its the parents fault for coming here in the first place send them all back home and let the Mexican Government decide what has to be done with them its there children there responsibility !!!!!!!!!!!

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.

Did you know that if a 60 year old White Man would have gotten jumped right were they wrote that youRead More would have never even heard about it ??? But you let someone call them a beaner and you would hear about it on every news cast . I bet they heard about this all the way in Mexico !!!!!!!!
Bob Loblaw July 20, 2014 at 12:03 pm
Farther then that! This made the news worldwide. Carroll County used to be the laughingstock of theRead More state, then it became the laughingstock of the country when it hired the phony British Lord and held a Flat Earth Conference. Now it's become the laughingstock of the world!

I have taught my kids since they were very young that cops are, for the most part.... bad! I haveRead More always warned them to be careful when near them and never talk to them unless it's a must. Cops are trained liars and manipulators. We are a normal upper middle class family with 2 parents 2 kids 2 dogs and a single family suburban home by the way(before I'm judged).

When will we all learn the basics? You have the right to remain silent. State so AND DO IT! If youRead More are detained, (ask if this is the case. If the answer is no, then ask if you are free to leave. If that answer to this question is no, then you are in fact being detained.), you have the right to an attorney, and to have that attorney present during ANY and ALL questioning. ASK FOR AN ATTORNEY!

This just proves that people are actually jealous of Justin Harris and that is why he is beingRead More attacked in the media. It is better jealously. The people of Georgia support you Justin Harris! Do not give up in the face of these lies!

I cant believe we are one of the first to do this . I would think that this would have been doneRead More years ago after 911 . I wonder if bus terminals and other public trans places . If not im glad I drive my truck to work.

Drunk or not, if I was ever a security guard or police officer, I couldn't arrest someone for theftRead More of food. And if I was the business owner I would definitely drop the charges as long as there wasn't property damage. However, the biting was overboard. That in itself probably caused the man's arrest.

Where is the state department in all of this? He is a US citizen that was hurt due to violenceRead More between 2 extremist groups. I'm sick of the attitude of the US State department that Israel does no wrong. Fact is no one is correct and if the US was smart, we would keep it's nose out of theocratic foreign politics.

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.....
