I guess he was a very serious method actor… I fail to understand how they thought this death scene would go well? What safety procedure was in place that obviously failed? How could anyone be so stupid to think putting a noose around your neck is a good idea and not life threatening? Darwin Award nominee in my book.
Take it easy, bman. This stunt has been performed in innumerable plays and films. But there's a right way to do it and a wrong way. My guess is that someone *thought* they knew the right way and it turns out they were wrong.

If the perp had made a smiley face and written “Have A Nice Day” would they be looking for them? Would it be news? Isn’t the crime vandalism? If so, why would “have A Nice Day” go unreported, and un-investigated?

“The visit will amount to a public embrace of Muslims by Obama at a time when public sentiment against them seems to be growing, largely fueled by fears of terrorist acts carried out by extremist groups.”
Geez, I wonder why public sentiment against Muslims seems to be growing? ISIS? Stabbings in Israel with Muslims throwing out candy to celebrate? Is it really “fears” of terrorist attacks or actual attacks?

Cowards. I wonder why they haven’t depicted Mohammed in a sexual way? Could it be because they are afraid of the consequences?
Massacres performed by Muslim fanatics target EVERYONE; fanatical Muslim zealots believe in a kind of "kill them all, let G-D sort it out" philosophy. Muslim Fanatics' consciences are driven by their inculcation and immersion into the Muslim culture. Muslim culture and al-Islam are conjoined. They follow the Koranic Teachings and rhetoric of the Imams. Their acts are theirs to own, however vicious to our Judeo-Christian beliefs. People who kill in the name of their god and explode themselves with the phrase “Allah Akbar” and “Allah is The One!”, are no different than the Kamikaze. Indeed, their “life” is a complete immersion in death. The Muslim “live to die” because they believe death brings them eternal existence in Paradise. What occidentals fail to grasp is the every Muslim is a threat, all the time, everywhere, at any place. Remember: They live to die. In their belief-system, the perfect death comes when they take an Infidel with them to serve as their slave for eternity. Why do I explain this to you? Many who post here appear to hold only the most tenuous grasp on the reality of The Jihad, and prefer to go off on tangents, expending energy on name-calling and scurrilous remarks. If you have an ounce of sense admit that Islam is the real, clear, and presently dangerous enemy. It matters nothing to the Muslim if you are a devout Christian, Jew, Buddhist, Wiccan, or agnostic or atheist. They will kill you because you are NOT their kind of Muslim.

Funny how there is no comment or response from the conference or the NCAA. Why? The journalist could have called the offices and inquired if they were also going to take action, add to the suspension etc.

The speech is very much like the rhetoric from a 3rd world dictator etc. “I told you earlier all the talk of America’s economic decline is political hot air,”……….. “Well, so is all the rhetoric you hear about our enemies getting stronger and America getting weaker. Let me tell you something — the United States of America is the most powerful nation on Earth. Period. It’s not even close.”——This sounds like something Saddam Hussein would say…… This man is a pathetic liar that sees everyone else as stupid. I have news for you. Only those that voted for you are that stupid.

Now your dog comes home with parasites and fleas and God knows what else.
"Now your dog comes home with parasites and fleas and God knows what else."
Like a newly mutated strain of Bubonic Plague.
Not if they’re treated. You do know that your dog can get fleas by sitting out in the grass in your yard don’t you and drinking puddle water?

Since when is it unlawful to earn profits? This is absolutely shocking. A judge uses earning profits as a means to legislate from the bench. I can’t believe we have come to this. When will other judges decide to turn an industry or a business over to the state, or allow them to be taxed simply because they don’t like that business due to profits being their priority? Rapes are up, let’s put a big tax on porn. You see as a Judge I can decide you are putting earning a profit over public safety…. The judge should be removed. How they ever got a law degree is beyond me.

“The “Paris agreement” aims to keep global temperatures from rising another degree Celsius (1.8 Fahrenheit) between now and 2100, a key demand of poor countries ravaged by rising sea levels and other effects of climate change.”
– Really poor countries? Were these countries wealthy prior to the industrial revolution and became poor? Did they somehow become poor after industrialization?–Answer: NO. What a bunch of $hit. Also it’s funny how these ego maniacs or liars (pick one) think they control the weather and temperatures. They claim they can now limit “warming” to 1.5 degrees. Really? How about you stop droughts, and deadly blizzards? Oh, you can’t do that. That’s crazy? Yet, you claim you can limit temps from rising? This tells me they already know the current trend is a lowering of temps and then they can claim agreements such as this are the reason why as a means to do even more regulation and control.

How is it the gun shop’s fault? I do not know why they settled instead of appealing. It seems the lawsuit should have been brought against Mr. Burtin and Mr. Collins. They are the ones who committed the crimes. Total b.s. holding the shop responsible. Backdoor way of going after the 2nd Amendment. Sue store owners until it no longer pays to be in the business/can’t get insurance.
Deep pocket rule applies. Doesn't make any difference in cases like this, they go after those who have the most money. In this case it's the Insurance Company.
546 : Think the jury was playing that popular legal game : Pin the Tail on the Capitalist !
They settled because they would have had to pay their lawyers more money to appeal the verdict and they probably would have lost as indicated by the jury verdict in the first place.

If the USA has been giving aid to Gambia, it should cease immediately. There is no way the USA should provide finds and support for a nation that is now more likely to harbor, or have terrorist training activities. Besides, they can get their needed aid from Muslim nations. Cut them off entirely, along with any other nation that declares themselves a Muslim state (and any others that undermine us, or are an enemy).
546 : With the Obama Far Lefties in the White House ? Good luck with that common sense comment .

If anyone comes forward to provide the funds etc. to have “it” receive a proper Islamic burial I have one question. Since I have continually heard that ISIS is not Islam etc., how in the world should “it” be receiving an Islamic burial? If you provide her an Islamic burial then you are admitting that her actions did not disqualify her as a Muslim. And, you are trying to help facilitate her entry into Heaven. Simply shameful.
 December 9, 2015 at 1:03pm
she couldn’t “shake the shameful feeling” of compromising her “deeply held principles for the sake of political expediency.”–Why feel like that now? That is what all Democrats do. Btw, your support of open carry didn’t have any impact on the election. Any vote you may have lost did not go to the Republican. You lost the election because you are a liberal. Taking one conservative stance does not change that.

There is more evidence of how President Obama was going to restore our respect and reputation around the world.
I am pleased to see someone recognize President Obama for what he is, and not lump the USA into the criticism.
