I'm so sick of bleeding hearts thinking that prison is good enough for these psychos! I just do notRead More understand the mentality that if we, as a society, condone the death penalty that we are somehow barbaric, sick or vengeful. What is wrong with you??? Do you really think it makes us a better society for continuing to support people like this killer for the rest of their lives? Do you understand how much money that costs our country EVERY DAY? I understand that perhaps you feel that there are some innocent people sitting in prison right now and, for those few, we need to be cautious in exacting final justice. However, this psycho admitted that he did it...described it in detail...he is guilty...there is no doubt about that. Furthermore, there is NO...let me repeat that...NO help for him. There is no amount of rehabilitation, no drug, no shock therapy, no surgery, no magic drink...NOTHING...that will help him or change him. I have worked in a correctional setting for many years...with some of the worst criminals in history...(who, by the way, have since been executed)...I have seen them on a daily basis, talked to them, listened to them, watched their daily actions. Trust me when I tell you, there is NOTHING that will change them and I have not lost one second of sleep over their executions...in fact, the opposite is true...I sleep better knowing they are GONE...gone permanently...not just 'put away' for a while. I understand that you think you are being compassionate...you are not. It is a service to society, in soooo many ways, to be rid of them. THEY are the true animals...let me take that back...they aren't even animals...I have two dogs...they have never hurt anyone...I value their lives more than any one of these sick individuals. I can't call them people, I can't call them animals...both are above what they are. There really is no name for it...but I will assure you...they have NO place in society...even in an incarcerated society. Judge me if you will...call me harsh if you must...my opinion comes from seeing and knowing...and you can take my statements how ever you wish...but I know what I know...and you can take that to the bank.

The attacker is a bully and his parents were fully aware of it. As a parent of a non physicallyRead More violent bully, you know when your child is a bully because he bullies his siblings.

Part of me wants the kid to keep the money but I know that will not happen. BIG error by theRead More bank....always thought they gave you an account number! I'd think twice about depositing any money into this branch. I wonder if the bank could be fined for such a careless act. I wonder if they paid interest to the original owner of the $31,000.000 while the funds were sitting in someone else's account??

LOL LOL From your comment I doubt if you have the education to even earn $30,000 a year, much lessRead More $3 mllion lol lol. One man earning $3 million a year in salary for coaching football in the NCAA or NFL is OUTRAGEOUS and INSANE!!!! The majority of those you referred to as criminals (euphemism for Blacks!!) are "student/athletes" with a 95% EMPHASIS on ATHLETE! They take these mostly low income kids out of their environment and put them in an environment of major colleges and expect them to survive on $75 stipend, when a good percentage of them come from homes where their parents can't afford to send them $75 a month. They are expected to partake in student life, and maybe go to the student union and buy a burger and fries for not less than $8-$10, not to mention the cost of a movie, or getting a new pair of jeans. What would be so wrong with providing each student athlete a decent stipend of $500 a month, from a program that brings in probably over $100,000,000 annually? Its these kids that are EARNING that $$$$$. Quit YOUR HYPOCRISY about earning an education!! Thats THE LAST THING that 90% of these kids will earn at UGA or any other major NCAA Division 1 institution, the last thing. They'll sooner earn a prison sentence before they learn anything academically. They earn the university over $100 million a year and generous you refer to some lousy $40,000 tuition fee that is not going to benefit most of these kids (research graduation rates for student/athletes). Whats pissin you off is that these Negroes are getting the $75 a week. Eat your heart out!! LOL LOL Go buy a UGA football or basketball ticket for $150 and enjoy the players!! Or, get rid of them and have your kid play!!! lol lol lol

Nathan Blair March 20, 2014 at 08:26 am
When are we going to stop blaming the poor disadvantaged athletes? Let's lay the blame squarelyRead More where it belongs, at the feet of the parents that did not raise them properly, or the society that continues to allow such actions without recourse. Used to in the not too distant past, if a student used someone else's ideas, or copied printed material it was called plagiarism. Students used to be expelled for it, but today, they are given a smack on the hand, a lower grade in the course, maybe a failing grade for that class and being allowed to repeat the class. Unless we come down hard on the crime as it is committed and stop delaying consequences things of this nature will continue to be more and more prevalent in society. For the double dealing check thieves, oh, I know, lets make them politicians.

With the utmost respect for Usher Raymond and his Family I do however feel it is inappropriate andRead More insensitive to post a photo of Usher as the highlight in this story and not the Little boy Kyle that was the victim of this tragedy. I know its all about sensationalism but i also would be livid if that was my son and they post a pic of the Step father just because he is a famous entertainer. Could we not see a picture of the Family maybe or a picture of Kyle AKA(Kile). I am a fan of Usher so its not a bash against him at all.

Ashcroft v. Free Speech Coalition, 535 U.S. at 249–50 (focusing on factor number two inRead More striking down part of an anti-child pornography federal statute that criminalized pornographic images made with virtual (computer-generated) children or adults dressed to look like children. ******* Without guidance from the Supreme Court, a lower federal court should hesitate before extending the logic of Ferber to other types of speech. The reasoning that supports Ferber has never been used to create whole categories of unprotected speech outside of the child pornography context. Furthermore, Ferber appears to be on the margin of the Supreme Court’s unprotected speech jurisprudence. Adler, supra, at 936 (noting that, aside from child pornography, “when the Court eliminates a category of expression from constitutional protection, it carefully defines the speech that can be banned; the definition then serves as a limit on legislative enactments”). Part of what locates child pornography on the margin as an unprotected speech category is the conflation of the underlying act with its depiction. By criminalizing the depiction itself, “[c]hild pornography law has collapsed the ‘speech/action’ distinction that occupies a central role in First Amendment law[,]” and “is the only place in First Amendment law where the Supreme Court has accepted the idea that we can constitutionally criminalize the depiction of a crime.” Id. at 970, 984; see Osborne v. Ohio, 495 U.S. 103, 144 n.18 (1990) (Brennan, J., dissenting.)
