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”.

There isn’t a bag in it is there? Thanks for the correction! My bad!
Still, this is gonna make for some great show segments =)

A new candidate for the douche-bag hall of fame? =)
There's no "bag" in DHoF.
Besides, since he's one of the Directors for the Hall, I'm pretty sure he's not eligible to be admitted into it's ranks as a Member. =}

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.

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.
Blaze headline: Thor Loser allegedly tires of the term allegedly. Complete details allegedly coming soon. : )
Seriously..............that's the biggest part of the apologetic media's vocabulary.
You are allegedly getting tired of it.
Me too! When's its just so obvious they're guilty.
Umm...guys...it's a legal thing. If you say she stole it you are insinuating she is guilty before trial. That's contrary to our constitution. So news outlets et al have to say allegedly to protect themselves from lawsuits.

Until she is found guilty the term is correct. Being arrested is not the same as being found guilty - just ask OJ.
Allegedly just means giving citizens the benefit of the doubt which is a constitutional right. Although, I am of tired of Selfie which is just a term to coddle Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Narcissistic personality disorder is a mental disorder in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance and a deep need for admiration. Those with narcissistic personality disorder believe that they're superior to others and have little regard for other people's feelings. But behind this mask of ultra-confidence lies a fragile self-esteem, vulnerable to the slightest criticism. Those who secretly suffer have no idea barely anyone cares what they post on Facebook in their little world, like what they look like in a bathing suit, what they watch on tv, what they had for dinner, what they had drank when they went to the bar, if they smoke weed for fun because they are rebels, etc...
YES!!! Thank YOU!!!
That word is SO overused and misused.
Its the bloody lawyers that now control the how's and what's and why's of society.
"Allegedly" is used so the lawyers can't sue. And until she's convicted, then it's "alleged."
Personally, I wouldn't allow the name or picture of an accused person to be released until they are convicted. That way you don't run the risk of trashing someone who is later exonerated. Our police are very good at arresting the career criminals, but when it comes to a case that is unusual, they often fixate on one person, assuming he/she's guilty. The OJ Simpson case is an example. Bloody fingerprint was left 3 days in the broiling sun before being tested and it was too late then. The drug angle was ignored, despite the deceased being drug users and the man a drug dealer. Lots of incompetence and chicanery later, OJ's acquitted. Everyone still assumes he's guilty.
Then, a serial killer before he dies admits that OJ's wife and her druggie lover were two of the people he killed out of the 80+ he murdered.
Even with that, people still think OJ killed his adulterous druggie wife and her druggie lover.
True, OJ was a fool to do armed robbery, and there's no doubt of his guilt there, but the murder trial and botched investigation beforehand illustrate how miserably the cops in this country are trained for non-routine crimes.
The Denver case of of JeanB Ramsay is another good example. Assumed the parents did it. Then, eventually found another set of DNA. Gee, might have checked at the time?
Get tired of the term all you want. It is correct. The police officer writes up the allegation against the accused and the judge decides if the allegation is true. I thought we blaze readers were smarter than this. I suppose you think I should have typed "us blaze readers"?
To quote the movie Dances with Wolves, "You don't talk no right English, does ya?".

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.
The only reason he hits her arm a few times is that she's clearly "resisting" putting her hands down so she can be cuffed because he's striking her in the head. The BS thing about this is that officers claim someone's resisting when this happens BECAUSE they aren't putting their hands down but the average person could not do that while being beaten in the head. It's natural to try and block and defend against that kind of attack. Just another example of police brutality in this unbalanced state we now have. Time to change it.

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.
Obama and ISIS have something in common: gun control and gun confiscation
The first thing ISIS did after its quick march to overtake Mosul and Tikrit was to declare all arms illegal except those in the hands of those fighting for/with ISIS.

Well, I suppose they need to change the name of the state of Oklahoma now. I’m Choctaw and Oklahoma means “red people”.
@ThorLoser Ha ha. Does that mean Texas has to change? When I was a little girl we vacationed one year in Colorado. A sign on a cafe said Color do. My dad told me so and they have been Color do ever since.

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.
