The parents should be prosecuted for child neglect or child endangerment. No excuse. Children only do things that they have determined from experience are acceptable. Of course every parent thinks their child is precious. I am acquainted with far too many parents whose children are obnoxious brats who are very unpleasant to be around. It’s a darn shame the Gorilla had to be killed because of parental neglect. They should be prosecuted if at all possible and definitely sued into oblivion.
How much experience does a 4 year old have? Have you ever been around a 4 year old? I'm guessing not, because Houdini couldn't escape as fast as a 4 year old.
I'm going out on a limb here, but I'm guessing your parents raised an obnoxious brat that is very unpleasant to be around.
And what good does that do anybody? Put mom in jail, and the kid into the system? Or bankrupt mom so she's in debt to the zoo the rest of her life? Good way to create an actual criminal, unlike mom who certainly made a mistake, but also certainly intended no harm to her child or the gorilla. Neither you nor I really even know how negligent she was...short of having the kid on a leash nobody can control all the movements of a 4 year old, even you have your eyes on them 100% of the time.

WTF is wrong with people? Too many of you are proving George Orwell a few years early in his predictions. Only PC approved radio for the sheep. This was totally hypothetical. IF Trump becomes a tyrant. IF he were to do this or that. Thor’s books, all of which I have read, are all about counterterrorism, conspiracies, and corrupt tyrants, etc. What’s the big deal about having a conversation about what should/could happen were Trump to become an intolerable tyrant? Had it not been Joe Biteme being such a moron, removal of Obunghole would not have been unwelcome IMHO. When the congress fails in it duties, the justice department fails in its duties and the executive branch is evil and corrupt, the 2A is the fallback. Hypothetically of course.
Of course, but they won't hear you cause only their MOUTHS are open and nothing else.

TPV, Exactly. WTF is wrong with people? This was totally hypothetical. IF Trump becomes a tyrant. IF he were to do this or that.

With a hearty thank you for sparing the cost of a trial , where jurors with NYC values would release the rapist.

There are vehicles, places, and situations for which 100 mph is completely reasonable.

“going 34 in a 25 is too fast to react to a kid chasing a ball into the street or an elderly person coming out from behind a parked van.” “endangering his neighbors”? Wow, you’re really hallucinating. I’m sure that was the exact situation. LOL!
1. John Kerry's military heroics were questioned when he ran for president. Some claim he didn't bleed enough for the three purple hearts he earned. I don't recall many conservatives defending him even though there were military records to justify the medals.
2. Kyle has told some tall tales like shooting looters from the Superdome roof during Hurricane Katrina and punching out Jesse Ventura.
3. This isn't a court case. It's journalism. Sometimes journalists have to use unnamed sources. There is nothing wrong with fact checking Kyle's military record. It isn't a liberal attack. It has nothing to do with Obama. It's just a journalist trying to get a juicy story.

I’m with you on the noise issue. Don’t they make mufflers for Harleys? Never seen one with them. I especially love the “loud pipes save lives morons”. Apparently never looked into acoustic physics. I like loud vehicles….when I was 14.

Exactly. A rifle is directly comparable to an A-bomb. What other wisdom have you got, Hawking?

You should paint de fence da same color as de house. Defense?
Just caught that! That's pretty funny With all due respect (anothersheepdog) but it's funny.
Remember the movie "Fallen Down" with Michael Douglas and Robert Duvall.
Duvall yelling DE-Fence DE- Fence that's why it's so funny.
I know i wrote de fence (joke) but it should be defense. Ahh forget it!
Oops! My bad! I guess anything outside da fence is safe...anything inside da fence is fair game! ; )

Liberals can’t tell the truth about their agendas. If they did, they could never get elected…except in NY, MA, IL and CA where the bulk of the electorate have celsius IQs.

This just in….Bad car crash removes two useless tools from the ranks of candidates. Darn, i woke up from the dream.

Unfarginbelievable! WTF is wrong with people these days? How is this possible? I guess the writing’s on the wall. When you’ve got such high percentage of idiots (fascistic progressive socialists) in your electorate, the country is doomed.

I love it. Have always wanted to do something like that – a non-violent protest against taxation without representation. I’m an auto and motorcycle enthusiast. I like driving – it’s fun. I pretty routinely ignore the speed limits. They are overwhelmingly completely arbitrary and do not reflect any real safety issue, just an opportunity for revenue collection. Almost everywhere I go, police allow 10 over before writing a ticket because even they know the arbitrarily low limits are ridiculous and hard to comply with. You can pick up 10 mph just rolling down a hill with no throttle input. Why put needless wear on your brakes just to avoid exceeding some arbitrary speed limit. The guy should not have been written up – a warning at worst. Studies have shown that on stretches of roads where there are no posted limits, 85% of drivers will end up going nearly the same speed within a couple of mph. It is a speed that they consider safe and reasonable for the conditions/situation. Interestingly that speed is always higher than the limit. If you are serious about making driving safer, create a real world, real driving skill test and make it harder to get a license. I hope I’m never stuck behind any of you “he broke the law” tools on a winding 2-lane out in the boonies. That’d make for a really boring ride.
Thanks to MIke Valentine and his awsome V-1 radar and laser detector!

There’s no way anyone can say too many bad things about the worst resident of the white house in history. He should have been impeached long ago. He deserves the blame, justified or not, for being a fascistic progressive socialist who hates the US. Maybe catshirt, punkazz, and auntievijay can have a triangular jerk.
