    I do not disagree with your feeling. No, I am not blasting and truly understand your comment. But, I think that for Robin, his act was “freeing” for him. Most people that attempt/commit suicide do not want to die. They want to be freed from pain. In that sense, he succeeded in this world. I whole heartedly agree that suicide is selfish. As an RN in a neurotrauma unit I’ve witnessed the devastation of loved ones left behind. But, I will not find fault with anyone who finds comfort in believing that Mr. Williams is now at peace. I pray for his family and friends as well.

    Methinks you lack reading comprehension. I addressed that the owners/staff might well have not been privy to the act in progress. Customers did address it as evidenced by their complaints to the establishment personnel. I realize you are sarcastic about the signs themselves, but the implication is clear. Dirty employee hands are repugnant. So is wiping a baby’s ass or hoo hoo at a restaurant table. You imply that the existence of the former negates the latter. Ie that if one eats in a restaurant one is already exposed to nastiness and therefore dirty diapers is no worse. Dumb argument. I agree signs won’t stop a filthy person but customer complains might stop another.

    When Mork n Mindy was on I thought it was dumb & didn’t think he was funny then. Then, around ’85, give or take, some friends insisted on watching an HBO stand-up show he was doing. He won me over with Hefty Bags & One Eyed Wonder Lizards. Been laughing with him ever since. A comedic genius. Is it me or does it seem common that the truly great comedians seem to commonly end tragically?

    One too my idiotic posts for me to remain silent. There’s no reason to believe restaurant personnel were aware while the diaper change was in progress. The article reads that customers complained. That’s enough for the owner to ask her to leave. Poopy or wet, customers complained. Would it have been any less vindictive for the owners to refuse service altogether? I don’t see it. Quite the opposite to me. My concern in that situation would be preventing a repeat performance in the dining room if she remained vs. “punishment”. Signs in the BR? OSHA requirement rather than a demonstration of what owners think of employee hygiene. And, for clarification, those signs mean wash after peeing as well as pooping or even entering the BR to comb one’s hair. Concerns me you would focus on poop only. It’s laughable that you would use signs in a BR to justify pee or poop on a table is ok. You set your dinner on a toilet if it doesn’t bother you. Me? I’ll eat in restaurants that eject people like this woman, who probably didn’t wash her own hands after changing a pee and/or poop filled diaper while I’m eating.

    Yes. “Thug” was supposed to mean something. It means that with nothing other than the usual racist sensationalism that happens in these situations, I choose to believe a 6-year veteran officer had zero reason to cold-bloodedly murder an ”innocent” for no reason save for his being black. The officer describes the young man and another forcing him into a physical altercation. That = thuggery. If you are implying that I was equating thug to black, familiarize yourself with the 3 that killed officer Lunsford. I also called them thugs and they are not black.

    While I think there are far too many examples of police brutality and misconduct going on, I am completely unwilling to accuse an officer of murder for no reason than the one killed has only color and finishing high school in his defense.

    Uh oh. This doesn’t bode well for the officer. I hope he’s black. Things will go better for a black cop than a white or white Hispanic (sarc). Sacrificial lamb to the slaughter needed to appease the masses.
    So, unarmed means two thugs together were not dangerous to the officer? Why don’t these people ask the family of Constable Darrell Lunsford how dangerous unarmed thugs can be? He was overpowered and murdered with his own gun by “unarmed” thugs (caught on his dashcam). That’s just one such example.

    I don’t think the hide Mr. Hide-y found in the Pepsi can is half as gross as seein the hide around the crack in his can! Yuk, pull up the pants dude!

    Culture. These kids are a product of culture. “Gangsta” culture. I really wanna believe they would have targeted the 1st unfortunate soul to cross their path but I do believe they wanted to target a white person. “bitches I’m up dem poles”? I tried to learn the origin or meaning of that and could not other than it’s a gangsta rap song tittle. Didn’t understand the lyrics at all. Might as well have been Greek.

    I am so angry that we daily see this 5h1t. I have tried all my 50 years to overcome the prejudices I’ve grown up with in a mostly white, rural southern MO area. But I see this stuff and see our illustrious leader commenting on issues he has no business commenting on and realize race relations are down the 5h1tter in a way I’ve not seen since I was a child.

    I hoped all my life I was not “racist”. But, I now realize by MSM standards I am and apparently becoming more so.

    ELLJAY: I had NO idea someone else had such a similar screen name as the one I chose. I hope I haven’t posted anything that got you in trouble! LOL I just signed up at the end of March so I’ll re-register as something else. Maybe great minds think alike; I was “spelling” my initials.

    I think the video is great and this dancercising granny will probably be shakin her stuff when the rest of us are toast. Keep it up ma’am!

  • August 21, 2013 at 2:11pm

    @JASE: I couldn’t figure out that “up dem poles” garbage either so I Googled the phrase. Apparently there is a gansta rap song titled “Up Them Poles”. I watched about 4 seconds of the video and then read the lyrics. Didn’t help. Shakespeare or James Joyce would make more sense to a 5-year-old than that 5h1t made to me.

    @groundzero: A few words for ya…Thorazine, Clozaril, Risperdal, Haldol; whichever works.

    @drgloom: LOL that was funny. White trash at it’s finest. But, on a serious note–I hope for that little man’s sake what he tells the dad is false, ie he isn’t his dad. That young man trying to take custody seems to be this little guy’s only hope. As for a lot of the comments–let’s not visit the sins of the father…(in this case mother)…on the child. As for the bite & subsequent smack–totally justified and understandable. This time some cops showed some incredible restraint and professionalism.

    @Steve: Forgot with last post, no I don’t have all the answers but by golly i have some serious suggestions! Egomaniac enough to think they are spot on too. LOL! TY for the discussion.

    @steve: providers don’t and shouldn’t have info regarding guns. Healthcare providers should have, and do have (if they do their job) information about the mental health status of an individual. Health care providers do not need to and should not have to consider gun law when assessing the stability of a patient be it suicidal or homicidal. Health care providers should consider only the health of the individual and danger to society at large. This is such a farce placing gun ownership into the healthcare arena. A suicidal person will succeed with or without a gun. So will a homicidal person. I simply think that the thought processes that lead folks to conclude that removing one tool will fix the mental health problem IF and when it is a problem. The gun isn’t the problem. The mental state is the problem.

  • August 6, 2013 at 5:26pm

    @Stevetherealist: I’m sorry, but I have to respectfully disagree. This woman was reported as being a suicide risk because the healthcare providers are practicing CYA from getting at cross purposes of a ridiculous gun law versus practicing sound mental health care. As a registered nurse I become really concerned when healthcare practitioners violate confidentiality unnecessarily in order to negate virtually nil risk to them personally IF a patient such as this did commit suicide by firearm. All the while seriously dangerous mental patients and convicts are released by revolving door daily into society. But once again, the hysterical, uneducated anti-gunners will target those who pose little or no danger to themselves or society. All this will lead to is people who love the 2nd Amendment will forgo any form of mental health care simply because it makes them a target of the government. Not productive in my opinion.

    I look at the picture of him and cannot decide whether to cry or vent rage. Having worked in a neuro-trauma ICU, I can say that many of the elderly when cognitively impaired either by brain injury, age, surroundings or any combination of those and other factors can indeed be very strong, combative, and dangerous—primarily to themselves. However, in all my time there the nursing staff NEVER required any security or police intervention for an elderly patient whether confused or plain old mean.

    I would like to know whether he was being forced into treatment because he was combative or vice versa—combative because he was being forced into treatment. If the former, like it or not, depending on the situation, taking him to the hospital against his will may have been appropriate. Either way, the force used against this man is an unnecessary tragedy—I don’t care what the cops claim. I cannot believe that staff, paramedics, someone could not talk this man down. I seriously doubt whatever he needed “involuntary” treatment for was emergent enough that the time could not be taken to treat this man with dignity and respect. The cops killed him, but IMHO the “I’m too busy to be bothered” attitude rampant in nursing homes certainly contributed.

    Hope I don’t get ripped to shreds, but sorry, I’ve got to go with he’s an ******* on this one. I read the appellate courts decision and the Janes decision on which much of the opinion is based and I don’t think this man was entitled to one dime more of the $800,000 than the other occupants of that vehicle. The 1.65 mil is his and he’s entitled to it. Anything he did or ever could recover from the At Fault driver and / or AF driver policy is his and he’s entitled to it, but not the 800 grand. For me he sealed that opinion by claiming in the suit that the other occupants claims against him were moot because (to paraphrase) the funds were already paid to and then distributed from his deceased son’s probate estate. He just didn’t want to up the cash.

    I’m sorry he lost his son. But, I’m also sorry he made the others lives even more miserable by being greedy. They were also injured and suffered losses. They were the ones looking for the fair shake. I’m glad they’re getting it.

    So a few months ago I go to the local dollar store in my little town. Small but usually busy store. Pouring rain and right in the middle of the lot some JackA55 parks his fancy ride right dead center over the intersecting lines of 4 spaces so I had to park in the very back of the lot. Took all I had not to accidentally rake a key down the hood. The truck driver is kind to teach the jerk a lesson in the manner he did.

  • July 10, 2013 at 11:27pm

    Yep. Good ‘ole “Law and Order”–’ripped from the headlines’. Just like this POS. This one story alone makes me want to swear off the Blaze.

    HI_DON: I can understand your concern. However, there are not many complete absolute contraindications for donation simply because it is often a person’s last chance at survival. Only malignancy, serious transmissible disease (HIV, Hep B, etc), and an organ that is already seriously chronically diseased will rule out a donor. The (potential) recipient’s doctors and / or family are free to turn down any organ that they do not want to risk and the organ will be offered to the next on the list. But, when one’s loved one may only have days or hours to live without a transplant, they accept a less than ideal organ more often than turn them down—as is the case with the little girl you mention in your post. But it is important to note as in this little girl’s case her second high risk set of lungs has kept her alive thus far. Even if they fail it may buy her enough time for a more “ideal” set to become available. As far a bringing cost into it—I now work in the healthcare payer industry and know that these costs can be astronomical. These things you mention do increase costs. However, as a nurse and advocate for preserving life, I just can’t find fault with using less than ideal organs.

    The last thing you mention—more healthy people becoming donors—certainly IS an answer and I advocate for that to the best of my ability. But suitable organs are not always ideal. What I really hate is stories like this that focus on what is nothing more than a major medical e
