If this was my son, I would have taken the games until the grades were on par. I took phones, computers and games for bad behavior or grades from my kids and they got the message once they were without for one or two weeks. But to have him destroy his X Box or Play Station, that is provoking the child to anger. Down the road, the father son relationship may end up strained or non existent.

I`ll make a bet that the Air Force is making efforts to find out the real identity of the letter writer with the goal of making a example of her for deviating from political correctness.

Could it be the new “gods” are self and government? We sure have quite a few in America and the West who deify government, even among those who profess Christianity.

The fact that Hersh is a leftist turning on Obama speaks volumes. I`m sure the progressives will turn on him with a vengeance.

I think she got a bit agitated and should have maintained composure, but the Border Patrol officers reaction was clearly over the top. She was not being violent. Unfortunately its very hard to sue federal officers, much less the federal government. What these officers did was abusive and they should be held accountable

If she paid in full for her criminal charges, there was no reason to arrest her. I hope she sues and demands the firing of the clerk who made the error. And unless they agree to her demands for settlement that it goes to trial.

Schock is just another symptom of the bi partisan political corruption that has deep roots in Illinois politics. He joins a long list of corrupt politicos that include George Ryan, Rod Blagojevich, Otto Kerner, Dan Walker, Dan Rostenkowski, and Richard Daley. Illinois should change their slogan to the Land Of Greased Palms

If this was California, New York or the UK, the father would be facing 5 years in prison for daring to do harm to a criminal.

It would be nice to resist having your children taken away, except for the fact that most of the time police will back up child protective services regardless of the lack of evidence or the unconstitutionality of the act. If you get too non compliant, at the very least you will end up slammed on the floor, at the very worst you may end up with a prison sentence or possibly even a bullet through your chest. Even more disturbing is our elected officials not wanting to roll back the power of CPS
I am so old and cantankerous that if CPS attempted to remove my Grand Children from their parents they had better have an Iron Clad Case of Abuse -otherwise - I will go hunting. If I can track a buck and get within a 100 yards a human is easy prey.
People willing to die for their rights are in short supply. That's why the people of the USA will not have any much longer.

If its still legal to exercise First Amendment rights in New Jersey, hold silent protests in front of the arresting officers homes. If nothing else it these brown shirt goons will be humiliated in their neighborhood.

I urge Jordan and any other nation that is holding ISIS prisoners to burn all of them alive. To hell with the protests of “human rights” activists. The world is facing subhuman savages and they need to be treated accordingly. To stop groups like this, the ante must be upped to such a level that ISIS will either disband or face horrible gruesome deaths.
End: Isis has committed another act of hate but we can't articulate that because that's making "hate" under the auspices of political correctness. PC rules. It rules over the truth. It rules over common sense. It rules over reality. It rules over common decency. "PC" is totally supported by the media. Go figure that?
Napalm would be the ticket.

A few air strikes using napalm and VX nerve gas will put a end to Boko Haram in short order.
Ya if they were all clustered in one spot. Somehow I bet they're melting into the civilian population

Actually the police officers will have to pay out of their own pockets if they are named individually in the lawsuit. Not unless the city is ethically challenged and covers the judgement for these officers.

I ask anti gun supporters if civilians cannot be trusted with more than 10 rounds, why should the police? I have yet to get a answer from members of Everytown, CSGV, Moms Demand Action or Brady.

This is sick and disgusting. This gives the anti gun and anti hunting groups fodder to push their prohibitionist agenda. If anyone hunts they owe the animal they shoot the quickest and least painful death possible. Even a coyote.
You have been domesticated. Go watch NFL football and play on the computer.

Connecticut is also the same state that force fed a prisoner in 2012 citing that hunger strikes citing security issues, a supposed threat to innocent third parties(????) and a duty to preserve life. Force feeding is essentially torture where a individual is forcibly restrained and a tube shoved down the throat. The Eighth Amendment is null and void in the state.

Seizing her cell phone? Obviously to prevent contacting journalists and citizen activists. Is Cassandra`s First Amendment rights suspended as well?
 January 6, 2015 at 3:51pm
Connecticut the same state that wants to pass laws that allow your legally owned guns to be confiscated without compensation or the right to trial by jury based on unproven accusations. Constitution state its not. I think freedom loving residents should show their displeasure by covering up the state slogan on their car license plate. But that is probably illegal too.

While I am very much opposed to the medical profession assisting in suicide as this is a violation of the Hippocratic oath, I do think you have the right to end your life. You are not property of the state, you own yourself. That is a decision between that person and God.
I also believe that a prison inmate should have the right to end their lives if they wish to do so. It is most irritating to me when I read of stories where prison officials go to court in order to force feed a inmate on a hunger strike or go to great lengths to prevent inmate suicide. Let them do it, at least they will not commit any more crimes.
It's not a violation of the Hippocratic Oath; physicians no longer take the Hippocratic oath but the new Lasagna Oath.

There is one way that Maryland law can be repealed without court action. It would take the full cooperation of the gun industry and that would be to stop all sales and service to government agencies in the state. Cutting off Maryland will not hurt the bottom line of the gun manufacturers and it would be a strong statement of support for the Second Amendment. The state would have no legal recourse if such action was taken. It would be only a matter of time before their police would have no ammo to train and qualify with, and no means to repair their firearms. The same tactics can be used against NY, Connecticut, Chicago, California and Massachusetts
