    Here we go with the overuse of the word “alleged” again. That *is* a car-jacker, the video evidence is proof of that and it does not rely solely on the word of a person. Now, the police may allege that a specific individual is responsible for the crime, but that the crime occurred is not in doubt.

    Seeing as our solar system has a population 1 star (Sol, a third generation star) built from the remains of two other stars that went supernova thereby producing the heavy elements (carbon 13 and heavier) that are required for life, like the iron that binds oxygen in our blood stream, I don’t find it all that amazing that molecules on earth predate the current sun.

    I’m confused. The headline doesn’t mention that he was black or unarmed. It should be something like, “Unarmed black man beaten with pole in front of his young child goes to jail”.

    If you are a 33 year old mother of five and a trio of ignorant kids can ruin your day with naught but words, then I dare say you’ve lived a blessed life at the expense of learning what the rest of us figured out on day one of middle school. When you let the opinion of others effect your view of yourself to the point that you wind up crying in shame, then you are doing it wrong. If you truly love and accept yourself and you truly believe that the stretch marks are a good trade for bearing children then shame is the last thing you would feel in that situation.

    “Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) nominated him for a Noble Peace Prize.”

    Similar to the Nobel Peace Prize, but even better!

    Yes, they do make money, just by having the add appear on the page, no need to click. An “image” of your browser is taken when you visit the blaze. If you later purchase a product or service from another site which uses the browser fingerprinting, then they know you have also been to the blaze, so the blaze gets a portion of the ad revenue.

    Not really. It *was* stolen, she is just the person who has been accused of stealing it. She has not been allegedly arrested, allegedly charged… she was actually arrested and actually charged. She was not arrested for or charged with allegedly stealing it, she was arrested for and charged with actually stealing it. She has not yet been tried or convicted is all. There is no crime called *alleged* robbery, *alleged* murder, etc… An allegation is made and based on that allegation along with other evidence an arrest may be made and charges may be filed.

    I’m getting tired of the term allegedly.

    The loose cigarettes sold are often RYO (Roll Your Own) and haven’t been taxed. It’s legal to roll them for your own consumption, but illegal to sell them. Rolling your own, they cost about 63 cents for a pack of 20 as opposed to the anywhere from $5 to $12 here in the states. They are aggressively trying to shut down the ability to roll your own all over the country right now.

    I live in the area. The sheriffs here are very good. They stop and talk to ya, talk to your kids, calm, collected, use common sense and don’t just show up to fill out paperwork and clean up the mess. Now ya head south a few miles and it’s a different story as you get to the areas filled with apartment complexes and government housing projects.

    I could be wrong, but it sure looks to me like he’s punching the shoulder and upper arm of the arm she is using to grab him with, not her head or face. If so, the technique is certainly effective and looks worse than it actually is.

    If I’m wrong and he’s hitting the head and face area it’s not only too much force, but ineffective at that. If you use ineffective force, I call it brutality.

    1924 was the end of the last caliphate. It is not just a medieval Islamic state.

    If we aren’t careful, they’ll pen a letter to the editor.

    correlation is not causation

    I agree with Obama on this one. Using the same logic, however, it’s up to citizens to defend themselves against violent criminals in the US as well, rather than wait on the police.

    Well, I suppose they need to change the name of the state of Oklahoma now. I’m Choctaw and Oklahoma means “red people”.

    SOX is for publicly traded companies and (some) non-profits with two parts of the act affecting private and public companies with regard to whistle-blower protection and something else that I can’t recall at the moment, it is not a legal requirement for governmental agencies, but it has often been argued that it should be or that some type similar regulation should be enforced. External auditing could prove problematic with some data, for example, but complete reliance on internal auditing alone is also not a great idea.
