The evil is coddling criminals with pathetic sentences for violent crimes. The evil is being ‘tolerant and fair’ to the mentally ill instead of treating them. God forbid we commit someone who is hearing voices and having delusions because it would be ‘unfair’ to strip their rights and not let them mix with society. The left wants these people to be treated as normal and the right doesn’t want to spend the money for institutions or treatment.
You can’t be personally accountable for seeking treatment if you can’t comprehend that you are insane. This isn’t intended for people with frivolous problems but, for those who are detached from reality (insert Pelosi/Reid/McCain joke here).

This is not a book to sexually indoctrinate children. It is a story of horrible abuse and the resulting self-loathing. Incest, rape and physical abuse were and are part of reality.

They will not permit us to recall him because he is a federal senator. We only have that power for state reps. There are several ‘ceremonial’ recall petitions filed already.

The chemicals in the pill(s) are the same makeup of the hormones that are in our bodies naturally. A lot of women take them not because they are promiscuous but, because they have endometriosis, hypothyroidism that causes hormone imbalance, anemia brought on by heavy periods etc.

Now can we stop nitpicking every conservative on social issues? Priorities must be put in order.

Mary Magdalene was not a prostitute. That was decided by Pope Gregory in the late sixth century under the assumption that Mary the apostle, Mary who washed Christ’s feet and the unnamed prostitute were one in the same. The Catholic Church could not handle Jesus appearing to a woman first after his resurrection. She was devoted to him and never denied him…unlike Peter.

How many of these children were sold to pimps by their local CPS workers?

L.B. Stephens- ‘It seems to me that a man wanting to represent the only true God, the Supreme Exalted Ruler of the Entire Universe, he would want to present himself as a dignified representative, not like a street urchin.’
Yes, well dressed like those ‘dignified representatives’ Jimmy Swaggart, Jim Baker and Benny Hinn.

Advisor: ‘Mr. President, people are starting to talk about the IRS scandal and our invasion of their privacy through the NSA again. It is time to make another inflammatory, distracting comment on the Martin kid.’
You just hit that nail right on the head!
Well, if O gets his way, this should be an interesting weekend and no one will be talking about his scandals next week.

Beyond gun rights, we should care if forensic evidence carries the weight it should. There is little, if any, room to argue trajectory. Bullets, gunpowder residue and wound evidence can not be emotionally argued.

Nothing says classy like a butch with a chest tattoo and nothing says ‘liberals are full of love’ like a sign that reads ‘Free abortion on demand without apology’. How do I know she’s a liberal? She wants it for free.

Because we are supposed to love thy enemy. Those who are lost are the souls God wants most to hear his call.

Proof that he is pro-abortion? Aside from associating with those who are? He works with all political parties to further the assistance of helping the impoverished.

I agree that the mother was completely stupid to leave her daughter with this man. There are kind strangers in the world but, that doesn’t mean we should blindly trust them. The mother used zero common sense and now her daughter is dead because of her choice.
That being said, Florida has a three strike rule for drugs and yet, allows child molesters and rapists to have unlimited opportunities for ‘rehabilitation’. Its time to start making non-violent offenders pay their debt to society through other means so we have room to get subhumans like this puke isolated. The death penalty is too merciful for this kind of demon. Now do we see the difference between the two teenage girls in a relationship and this monster?

Brand’s tour is examining the commercialism/revisionism of social and religious figures. Five days ago, everyone was praising him for embarrassing the MSNBC idiots on air and now, he is a lefty/socialist/marxist because the name Che is attached to this article. It must be nice to place everyone into a tidy, labeled category based on zero facts.
For the record, Brand is ten years sober and a self-professed Libertarian.

Soybomb is, again, spot on. The citizens of Iran attempted a real revolt against tyranny in 2009 and what did our government do? We outright turned our backs on them. Because it wasn’t a pre-manufactured conflict and there was no agenda to create another war that would boost profits for the military industrial complex.
The hypocrites here want to leave the citizens of Iran to suffer under the current regime. The same people who continuously make the distinction that they did not choose our current administration. Do you think the people of Iran had any more choice than you did? Do you think that, perhaps, you are not the only victims of fraud, manipulation or lies? Then again, this is the Blaze and most of you don’t take kindly to them ‘furiners’…especially those who don’t worship God in the manner which you deem suitable. If that is the case, you are forgetting Matthew 5:44.

The 18 year old may have terrible judgment, she may be ‘slow’ or have a personality disorder. That being said, she is NOT a pedophile. Pedophilia is the sexual attraction to pre-pubescent children and acting on that attraction is child molestation. The younger girl was 14, that would clinically make it ephebophilia but, there would have to be a wider age gap and again, it is a psychological issue of exclusive attraction to that age group…not the act.
I say this because the terms need to be applied correctly to match severity of punishment for each criminal act. The stupidity of two teenagers having sex comes no where near the horror of an adult molesting/raping a pre-pubescent child or someone who is 30 coercing a sixteen year old into a sexual relationship.
I am fairly certain that a lot of people here would not be enraged if these girls were 18 and 22 or 24-28 (aside from those who abhor homosexuals). The mental capacity and comprehension of a 14 year old and an 18 year old are similar, their physical traits are similar and their social interactions are similar. They are peers so, unless one of them is developmentally delayed, it is not predatory behavior.
Hogwash, that is moral relativism. I have a nephew in jail right now for the same age difference and a girl who ran off with him. People are trained these days to excuse under aged sex because it's normal in the movies... and kids think there is something wrong with themselves because they are not engaged in sex. We should not be sexualizing our kids so young.

For a Criminal Justice PhD candidate, she isn’t too bright about opening the door for the would-be intruder. She doesn’t know if he is armed, if he has a partner with him or if he is trained to/quick enough to disarm her. She lucked out. Best solution, if you have to wait for them to actually enter the home, would be to back up a few feet and hold steady (out of the range of the door being kicked in).
There should have a small round hole in the glass door!
I'd say you aren't the bright one. If you can't see that the entire upper part of the door is see through glass of some sort, I don't know how you were able to read the article.
True. Good point.
Maybe she didnt want him bleeding on her carpet.
Thats about the worst tatical plan I've heard all day! WOW
A dead criminal doesn't re offend.
She should have done us all a favor and pulled the trigger...I wonder if the castle doctrine applies in Ohio? Well, on second thought, check that then pull the trigger!
I also question IF she is really a Ph.D. candidate at all. However, nothing says "get off my front porch" like a loaded .357 magnum, even IF her weapons retention is absolutely horrible, she is VERY VERY lucky, she did not get her revolver turned against her.
She could see him pretty clearly. I know it may be news but they invented these new things recently called windows. Besides she was probably exaggerating about him being five inches from her barrel. She was probably trying to make it sound more dramatic by painting a picture of some kind of dirty hairy scenario.
I love how we're always being told only highly trained people with decades of experience can possibly handle a gun without killing themselves, but every crack head buffoon is an expert hand to hand combatant capable of disarming and killing anyone with a gun. Stop with the idiocy already.
Thank you, ROWGUE- you just took the words out of my mouth.
I am laughing at all these people who are acting like they were there and think they could have defended her home better than she did.
Or you can take care of business just like she did!
I think the correct response is to shoot blindly through the door. I think thats what Biden recommended. Sucks for girl scouts selling cookies.

They started the relationship when the older girl was 17 and the parents of her girlfriend waited until she was 18 to press charges. Florida has a ‘Romeo and Juliet’ law, where there is an exemption for close-in-age relationships or if both were under the age of consent…which they were. Also, pedophilia applies to those who are attracted to a prepubescent child- not two teenagers screwing around and certainly not because you find their behavior morally reprehensible.
Even if she is charged, the statute states that a sex offender may be relieved from registration requirements if, among other requirements:
c) Is not more than 4 years older than the victim of this violation who was 14 years of age or older but not more than 17 years of age at the time the person committed this violation.
Sorry . An 18 year old had sex with a 15 year old. That's a pedophile even if she was having sex with a 15 year old boy.

There are a couple of really retarded comments on this thread. Namely the guy who took a story about a woman being gangraped in Dubai and turned it into women being anti-NRA, Solyndra and a pregnant waitress. The point is, the women who have a false sense of security anywhere in the world are the direct product of ‘celebrate diversity’ in schools. Celebrating diversity is great at recognizing people are different but, it perpetuates the lie that those diverse people will openly accept and respect your differences in return. I can recognize your ‘culture’ but, it doesn’t mean I have to accept it and it certainly doesn’t mean I need to immerse myself in it.
