If this was a domestic incident and she stabbed because he was hurting her then good for him. UntilRead More they protect victims of domestic abuse this is what shoukd occur and she has every right to laugh at what she did. Now if she committed a random killing then i side with the judge.

Give her a few more hot dogs and a few big gulps, maybe she'll explode herself and save the expenseRead More of keeping her in prison. You know what it's going to cost Michigan to feed her? I don't favor the the death penalty in certain circumstances, but apparently she does. And the judge-I think he showed restraint considering her complete lack of respect, obviously for not only everyone else but herself as well. Isn't contempt of court another felony or misdemeanor?

The death penalty accomplishes three things: It reduces the recidivism rate by 100%. It providesRead More SOME means of closure for the victim's family and friends. It reduces the expense to taxpayers to feed and house the criminals for a very long time. Whether it's a disincentive to commit murder is not fully understood, there is conflicting data. Depends on whether the study was conducted by a liberal or conservative group. One of the countries with the lowest murder (and crime) rate in the world is Singapore. Their justice system pulls no punches, they even execute drug dealers.

Gun deaths per capita in Mass are the lowest of of any state besides Hawaii. I assumed that wasRead More because of our gun laws, but now I see it's because the gun nuts are all too busy writing comments at Patch.

Overall the problem is criminals. Should we castrate everybody so there's no more rape? SoundsRead More silly, doesn't it.
Prometheus April 18, 2014 at 09:07 am
unclebuck....that is because pols know only law abiding citizens will follow the law....we hear overRead More and over that they do not want to take our guns....but they do , otherwise they would enforce existing laws.

How long are we going to keep throwing parties and concerts keeping the memory of this terroristRead More attack alive and fresh? I see t-shirts, bumper stickers, tattoos, flags, banners, news stories all day everyday, music, large gatherings etc etc....can we move on? Allow victims to heal in private and stop talking about this terrorist and what he did all day. I'll never understand that about our society.

Horses should not be nose to exhaust pipe on city streets. That is cruelty and the horse had hadRead More enough.

A horse and carriage ride in a park, fine. But not on busy, crowded city streets. It's cruel to theRead More horse and dangerous to everyone else. I'm with the NYC mayor on this one.

Poor horse. I hope someone equine rescue unit will relieve him from his present circumstances andRead More either give him a good home or find him one.

When taxes are imposed on various industries then to stay in business the prices increase on theRead More consumer! Obamacare , gas taxes, payroll taxes, tolls, the proposed soda and candy tax , your tobacco tax is 75% of what the product really costs! Commercial Property tax increases! Do you people see what's going on here? This country is being destroyed by the Democrats! It is starting to resemble The a Soviet Union! We should change the name of this country to the USSA!

Double edge sword. I applaud the fact that he knew kids everywhere would blindly and naively seeRead More the cover of rolling stone and be affected by it in a way that supports and encourages and dare I say, idolizes a terrorist. On the other end, he broke the law and there's WAY too much of that getting swept under the rug. At the end of the day I'm happy he did it. The image of him bloody is more shocking than that ridiculous picture on RS. I think regardless of how much exposure he got, it worked for the greater good.
Snow April 17, 2014 at 05:19 pm
I'm going with hawk's opinion. What he did counteracted the Rolling Stone cover, showing the realRead More truth of what happened. Though it would be nice to know if he received money for his photos or just released them- anyone know?
Scott April 18, 2014 at 08:06 am
Hawk.....There were no laws broken here. Yes, he may have broken a department policy. But not aRead More policy that should have forced his retirement. Think of this. Police and Fire departments all over the country now post Twitter pictures while on scene working an incident. Obviously if their taking pictures, then their not doing their jobs. Isn't that breaking department policy also? No reprimands happening. I still think this was a lame decission by the MSP.

@DennisN......LOL! You made my day! Everything I said was 100% True. For some reason the People ofRead More Mass will vote Democrat even if its not a Good choice. They did surprise me with some Republican Governors though. 1972 Mass goes for McGovern. Only State in the Union. Nixon paid us back by closing several bases. I'm sure your a big Obama fan as well. I promise you he will go down in history as the worst President in Modern times and maybe even All Time. Mass will always be home for me Dennis, sorry. We will just have to agree to disagree. I can do that. I don't think you can. By reading your post to me and others I can tell your pretty impressed with yourself. I'm not. How do you think Mary Jo Kopecknys family felt when Mass kept electing the guy who killed their daughter. 6 hours of missing time Teddy couldn't explain. Or how about the families of those underage boys felt when Men in their 50s were having sex with their kid? Not a day in jail. Then, Barney and Gerry kept getting reelected. Its not up to the US Government to control every aspect of our life Dennis. Obama, Holder, Pelosi, Harry Reid are all criminals hiding the truth from the American People. Agree To Disagree if you want but sometimes the truth hurts. PS I am not a Republican either

Tom you are obviously an internet TROLL! And Genius I never said she would be a GOOD Leader!!! IRead More simply stated she might have put a stop to or slowed what has happened to this country. Given the fact that she certainly was well aware of all the players in Washington DC. But this of course of my own opinion and I am a realist and understand that there are those that believe there is NOTHING WRONG with the state of this nation. Of course I might also believe those individuals are living in Egypt on Denial!!! (Hint: Read it fast it makes a funny kind of sense!) But again that would be MY belief. Shhhh Please don't tell anyone in the Government though that might disagree!!! Lest they send 5 fully armed Swat teams to my little spot in the world all of those Swat members being fully armed with the latest in Anti Terrorist weaponry to storm my little home that doesn't have any kind of a weapon unless you consider my 1.5 year old clownish French Bull dog some kind of evil canine??? LMFAO And after they kick in all my doors and windows all they will find is an old kitchen scale that measures food weight and calories!!!! OMG and you know it's the likes of individuals such as myself, middle-aged women that are most certainly the biggest threat to this Country!!!! But take away all the sarcasm and right here you will find a person who will die to protect my civil rights and those of my fellow American. Because I am one of those American's that when I see the someone's civil rights being violated by the Government, or Federal Law enforcement, or even local law enforcement officers. I will stand up and speak up for that person. And I will not shut up and just go away and mind my own business. Because I do believe and Know that to do NOTHING means I am freely agreeing to give up my own rights. And that is never going to happen!!! So YA I am a very proud 54 year old troublemaking military vet that is also a staunch supporter of the US Constitution and will commit civil disobedience making sure it is not blatantly violated in my presence. And there never is a bad day for a REVOLUTION!!!

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.
Grumpy Old Man April 18, 2014 at 08:54 am
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. Oh, and Allison, give your French Bull Dog a big hug and kiss from his cousin my English Bull Dog who loves Bulldogs of any stripe, color, or national origin.
