President Asshat since day one has been set out to destroy the “white devil” (justRead More listen to his community rally speeches). Ignorant people voted for him and ignorant people are still chanting his name “Heil Obama” … Just like Hilter and Stalin he wants a “planned economy” destroying producers forcing the people to be more reliant on government; which the ACA is designed to do. I believe that Asshat is causing more problems so when his section “8” lease is up, he can blame his replacement on the troubles “look, I needed more time, not my fault”.

In this day and age you have to be aware of your surroundings at all times in public and even inRead More bathrooms and changing rooms to protect yourself. I understand why this woman is so upset, I do. (I thought the State was immune from lawsuits.) All this does is drive up the cost oif insurance for state and municipal parks, when so many are working to preserve them, this kind of lawsuit deters more towns and states from acquiring and keeping parkland.

Well Clare where does this say the girl is a raving beauty? She might be and she might not be. ItRead More was pretty crude thing to say about this guy. How attractive would you be having a mugshot taken? Maybe the girl was lonely, maybe not. If you read my previous post. Don't know one way or another, but I don't think you can just go on her word alone. Do you remember Andrea Mears who beat the hell out of the guy flying a drone and then told the police he attacked her. If it was for the video everyone would have believed her. I said at the time that Andrea didn't do females any favors because from then on the female's story get harder to believe. BTW she said she left the home, there is only her word for that.
Clare July 25, 2014 at 12:51 pm
Hey, Igor. But you are taking his word alone aren't you? I still say, mug shot or not that is oneRead More ugly dude and I never said she was a raving beauty, did I? The fact that he came onto her and the fact she got the hell away from him shows me she was immature and afraid of him. If you want to come up with the one example of Andrea Mears, you go ahead. How about all the handymen who work in homes and rape and kill the women in the house. I can guarantee there are a hell of a lot more of them than Andrea Mears. This is just one example: http://www.foxnews.com/us/2010/12/12/handyman-admits-killing-mass-women/

there might be more to this story than what's being told. this might of been the last straw for theRead More mang for this kid. He should of been taught way before this age to keep his opinions to himself, the mother is to blame for this one. maybe she don't know any better tho.

I find this extremely disturbing. Who does this "Officer of the law" think he is. I can'tRead More believe that he is still on our towns police force. He has had multiple violations against him. In a town that has far to many officers of the law it shouldn't be an issue of letting him go. I for one don't feel comfortable knowing that I have children in this town that might one day have to deal with such an negligant and high and mighty attitude from someone in a position of authority should be portraying. It sickens me that My Tax Dollars go to rewarding such indivuduals with such an "cushey" career. Then to think that they will go out of ones way to create issues and possiblee law suits within the town that pay's for his lifestyle. We don't need officer's like that on our force... This is mulitple offences with just a slap on the wrist. (this "BOYS" club has to stop) Kudo's to the officer that had the testicles to try and charge him. On a different note. This is the same officer that Beat his ex girlfreind pretty bad. A different officer in town stepped in the stop it and got into a physical altrecation with Worden. Barley any reprocussion was dealt. Yeah let's give this pathetic officer more overtime. FIRE HIM... the police union can only protect so far. He should be eating ramen noodles
Spiff July 24, 2014 at 09:59 am
"State's Attorney Refuses to Sign Arrest Warrant"... Well, let me ask you this, what elseRead More would you expect in this corrupt state? As Jennifer pointed out above, this same guy was arrested for beating up his girlfriend a few years back and got off scott-free! He obviously has some anger issues that he can't control. But he's a cop. And, of course he's going to lie about what happened between him and Maher. Self preservation is a basic human instinct... He's a human being before he's a cop.

Kara, the headline reads "Organic Fruit Sold Locally Recalled for Possible ListeriaRead More Contamination". It's clearly sensationalizing the two organic products.
Suzanne jefferis July 24, 2014 at 01:12 pm
The article should read 'Fruit Sold Locally'... It is misleading to the unaware who read no fartherRead More to suggest that organic fruit is the problem. All fruit, organic or those sprayed with unsafe pesticides should be washed. If gene spliced with herbicides and toxic pathogens as with GMO fruit, it is no longer a product of nature.
PS July 24, 2014 at 02:24 pm
Let's be realistic, those who are "unaware" probably aren't the people buying organic inRead More the first place. Lay off Kara - she's the only reason the patch is any good!

Cohort - Don't feed the trolls. They are too small minded to ever admit that see how this tragedyRead More could have been worse had the doctor not been armed. Next they will tell you they doctor should be fired for violating the medical center's rules on gun carrying on their campus. To those diseased minds, better that the doctor obey the idiotic "gun free zone" credo than have prevented a tragedy from becoming worse.
Bobbie July 25, 2014 at 10:59 am
That's right, Thomas. We should all disobey the laws. That will keep us calm and civilized. andRead More the body count will be out of sight. The NRA has you on a tight leash, Thomas.
