    I went to elementary school in Florida and what I remember most was the racial tension between the Hispanics and African Americans. There was a lot of gang fighting and it was between these two racial groups. Any time someone brought up racism as I was growing up this is what came to mind.

    You want a story that is as note worthy and some one should be telling “The Blaze”? How about the fact that the Federal Government passed a law that all in home attendant care workers should get over time up to 16 hrs a week. So Virginia has turned around and decided no one can work more than 40 hrs a week as a consumer directed attendant. This is in a work sector were there is little to no people who want to do this work beyond family members. Example: My daughter is 24 and severely mentally disabled. She has to have 24 hr care. She gets 18 hrs of service care per day. She can’t have 24 because then it would be argued why isn’t she facilitated. Crazy because most facilities have been closed in the state of Virginia because the DOJ sued the sate and won and demanded most be shut down. Also it is constantly argued that everyone does better in a home environment and it cost less. But you can’t get 24 hr in home hrs approved. I have two people who help with care. My best friend and my youngest daughter do hrs to give me a break. Over a two week period I do 150 hrs in the care of my daughter. She lives with me. The sate is now leaning toward not allowing me to do more than 80 of those 150. The families and children/adults that get this help with care are going to be screwed if they change it. The ability to find competent help to work these hrs that you can be comfortable with caring for someone who can be aggressive and destructive is near impossible. But no media coverage.

    Interesting question… did anyone actually get the response to his question? I would like to know how it was answered.

    The “smoking gun” being the bullet and Dassey being the reason they even knew she was shot in the garage and that is how she died is BS. Anyone who watched the interview with Dassey by the investigators knows. The reason this guy says he thought it was the smoking gun during Avery’s trial is because what was presented at his trial was different than at Dasseys. Everything about what Dassey said and the Prosecution said about Dassey’s confession to the media during the press conferences ended up not even being a part of Avery’s trial. They had to throw out 3 of the 6 charges because they didn’t use Dassey or his confession in Avery’s trial. And the Judge kept the Defense from asking why the Prosecution wasn’t using all the Dassey stuff in the Avery trial. That is why Avery wasn’t charged with rape and the two other counts that Dassey was charged with and convicted of.

    Because they didn’t know it was him for the 2005 until they caught him on the 2009.

    If he killed her in his garage right beside his house and the burn pit why would he transport her in the Rav4?

    If I remember correctly during the testimony on the bones and ashes, they found evidence of them in 3 separate locations on the property. I need to re-watch it to be sure. But the defense was asking about if there was any way to tell if they were moved because they found bone fragments in a barrel somewhere else and I can’t remember what third thing he referred to was in relation to the remains. She then talked about how moving it would be evident if they weren’t moved carefully. The defense then asked how they were collected and I believe it was not done how it normally would have been (carefully) but with a shovel. Which made the forensic lady look full of bull.

    Looking for who the GOP establishment that keeps screwing us is going to back in the primary. Here’s your sign.

    I have lived in both of these towns. Years ago when I was 19. Comparing them is like apples and oranges. Ridgefield is more rural and a country setting. Where as Bridgeport is completely city. Looking at some of the demographic numbers I can only assume hispanic is our term for Brazilian. Unless it has changed that much. Bridgeport had a large Brazilian population. I lived in bridgeport first then moved to ridgefield. Bridgeport isn’t very big but you wouldn’t know you left it as you drove along because city after city flow one right into another.

    So if all Americans decide to remove all things that anyone finds offensive or disparaging to their race, gender, religion or financial status will that finally fix the flaws in human beings? Because that is what the arguments seems to be when it comes to banning inanimate objects or words that anyone decides offends them and how they define it’s symbolism. From confederate flags to crosses or The Redskins. It’s an intellectually dishonest way to address our flaws and how we as a society can be better to one another. That is really the issue, not the many different things that flag symbolizes to different people.

    Another thought…shouldn’t they go after the one receiving the payments for tax evasion? If not, is it because they actually disclosed to the IRS this as income? If there was wrong doing that is criminal then go after for him for that. This just shows how anyone can be targeted and a law can be twisted and used to take them down.

    So basically he did something bad to this person…he agreed to pay them 3.5 mil in compensation and it is consider structuring and evading the IRS because he did it in increments of less than 10,000. Had this been something civil handled between their lawyers as a 3.5 mil settlement it would be different? It’s not that I don’t get he could be a total dirt bag. But my take away of this is… there is legal way to pay someone off and your golden. And there is an illegal way that involves the FBI and IRS.

    If my agreeing with the death penalty was simply based off of biblical principles then I would have a different response. As of now I don’t agree with the death penalty because I don’t believe in the integrity of our entire legal system. Until that changes I will not be able to support a death penalty even for those I believe are guilty and for whom it should/could apply. I would be happy to elaborate even further on multiple points regarding the degradation of our legal system if something specific is asked of my thoughts regarding my comment.

    I was just reading a report from TPNN that said “According to a German media site, it is speculated that the 28 year old copilot who crashed a Germanwings flight this week had converted to Islam. Andreas Lubitz had stayed for a time in Bremen, home of the radical mosque, Masjidu-l-Furqan, where he trained at the Lufthansa Flight Training School.” Will be watching to see if this is confirm-able.

    Just heard there is a rather large police presence in the town of Orange and OCH school area because of rumors of rioting.

    I have been a huge fan of AC/DC since I was 16. I have met them and went on the road to a couple of shows. Sorry Billy but your way off base on this one. From what I understand since Bon Scott died of alcohol poisoning, the original lead singer, all the excess partying went out the window. The horns have been an icon of the song Highway to hell since the albums first tour. The song has nothing to do with worshiping the devil nor the wearing of the horns. Sorry but your reaching real hard to find something in it that isn’t there.

    It’s the flash. Especially since the one update months back to adobe flash. I stopped even trying to visit the page on a computer browser. Once I realized it was something with flash I went into my browser setting and made it so that I can choose to activate it while browsing if I want to watch a video. It has helped stop this problem for me on more than just The Blaze web site.
    For The Blaze IT it’s something in the flash dude :p

    Clearly an even bigger picture is being overlooked in this whole conversation. What in the heck would they do if more than one assailant attacked in coordination? How many would die or be injured and if they don’t have a viable plan to address a single shooter what if there were more? The vulnerability of a military base to something like this is just crazy! Clearly leaders have their heads up their butts and priorities in the wrong place if you can’t even figure out how to take highly trained people in weaponry and trust them with a plan to be armed to protect your base from even a single shooter!

    Right? Next it will be, that is so unfrair of him to flaunt our right to bear arms. He is just trying to make others feel inferior. What a bully. Being white he is also probably racist too. :p
