Chrissy, do spiders cause you to become apoplectic? I imagine they woke her from her 81 degree oven.Read More What are you fretting over? The poor woman had no one to annoy with her racist rants for five hours?
Pam J July 23, 2014 at 02:37 pm
I think people are jumping to conclusions here. He apparently parked in a parking garage. Granted,Read More five hours is too long and he should just be considered a bad son, but he really didn't do anything illegal. Sure she was incoherent when the police first questioned her. She's 98 years old and was asleep when they started questioning her. How many of us make a lot of sense when we first wake up? My 83-year-old is just now complaining about being cold and I have the airconditioning turned up to 78. Older people can deal with heat a little better, apparently. I bet the mother was doing just fine until the "good" citizen decided she wasn't. But it's good that they called her son.

And once again, that's the best surveillance footage they can provide?? In this day and age ofRead More high-def and the highest resolution cameras in history, and this is the best they can do. Sad. My suggestion?....hidden eye-level, high-definition cameras throughout the store, at the register and exit, and third party monitoring. These creeps would have been met by law enforcement in the parking lot or shortly after.

Not defending the cop, but why did Harvey stop his vehicle and get out and approach, no contact wasRead More made with vehicles, he should of just kept going. You, me and every person has cut someone off at some point in our driving years, whether it was by accident or purpose, you and everyone has done it. I know that intersection, it's a weird left turn and sometimes you can accidentally cut someone off which enrages the other person, Harvey should of ignored it moved on. Approaching a vehicle after something like that happens means you are looking for trouble, the cop should of kept going also. 2 egos who wanted fight after a Stupid game of Cat and Mouse and ends with one Dying. Ridiculous

The Lawyers are the ones that will get 40% of that settlement. The Hospitals premiums will go up andRead More that cost will be absorbed by everyone who has insurance.. There was no harm to anyone, and I understand no ones face was seen in any of the pictures. So if you are in the middle class and see your health insurance premiums go up once again thank the trial lawyers. Funny how they can get away with it in a country where the laws are written by lawyers.... Kind of like "Hershey's" writing the dietary requirements, really doesn't make sense. .

Ummm sorry but there were as many perverts in the 70's and 80's. And no, you cant leave them alone.Read More Yes, I walked alone to school but it was just up the street. I cant count on one hand how many molesters and perverts that lived in my neighborhood. And the tricks they used to get you in their grasp. I was molested by an old man who pretended he was an indian chief; he dressed as one and had his yard set up as sacred land.He said he'd make us little girls princesses but we have to be pure; and he had to check to see if we were, one by one. Trapped in his basement, scared, but still young enough to believe his story; plus he said all the girls had to do it or did it or leave. We were 8. Yes, once he made his move, some instincts kicked in; fear but not enough to stop him. We were taught to obey and trust. Never told my parents. I wonder how many of us were invaded. We never asked each other. I always wondered what the "Queen of Princess" had to do..He deemed her special of all of us. Just after, 1 of the girls told her mom that this man lets his penis show and that mom put a stop to all of us going. But even then, none of us told how far he went. We figured out we were stupid to fall for the story..it was so elaborate.He took on a new group of girls and I blocked out the incident until one day, a trigger opened the memory. Went back to see if he was still there several times. His wife knew. She saw all of us and all the other groups of girls. She knew. Another time walking to school, a man living around the corner asked me to look in the basement window at the puppy. I did, and it wasnt a puppy. I ran away and always afraid to walk past his house. Oddly, the next person to move in there did the same thing. Only he just came out and flashed. Another time as a young 14 teen. A man offered me a ride. I had walked like 4 miles already and had several more to go. He seemed nice enough and though my mind said no; my pain and 2nd guessing my instincts, I accepted. Got in. Minutes later the door locked on its own and I knew I was in trouble. I was so scared I was trembling. He asked for my hand but I didnt give and pretended not to hear. I saw he had his member out. I didnt let him know I saw it. He tried to get my attention but I knew I had to stay calm to escape and not alert him. When he stopped at a light, I jumped out and ran. I hid in the bushes of a post office. He came back looking for me. I hid for a long time til I was sure I was safe. I realized as an adult now, he didnt look hard there cause I was o fed property . There were so many occurrences. Most from being to young to understand how evil people can be. The incident of me accepting a ride against better judgement became the example I preached my kids. The Indian though made me a very protective parent, scared for my kids; even now. Children cant conceive of bad. Theres always a more clever pervert than the warnings you tell.. No child is safe, smart or strong enough...Our wisdom is all they have. I never trusted; and always will be a dramatic mom looking to prevent the worst case scenario. Never realized why I was so dramatic/afraid til that memory came back as well as another horrible one..

Dear R.S. FYI, there is NO statute of limitation in reporting these people! It's unfortunate thatRead More you did not tell you parents or the police! But...they can still be caught and serve time! You might save another life in the process! You need a BARRACUDA of a lawyer to track them down but it will be worth it because you are taking care of YOU and host of other children who have been victimized as children!
Mary Vecellio July 25, 2014 at 08:01 am
Dear R.S., it's unfortunate that your parents didn't make you knowledgeable of such people! EvenRead More so, it doesn't matter how OLD the person is today, they can still be reported! Look at the suffering you and your husband are going through! Have you looked into counseling for both of you? Talking to a third, non-judgmental person really helps! It will get you over the hurdles and trigger words or memories and a counselor can advise you on your next move to bring justice and the truth to the surface! Plus, it's worth EVERY PENNY and an hour a week of your time, believe me!

Children r NOT Mexican.They r from several countries and ! city that is the murder capital of theRead More world.The drug cartels would not exist if Americans didn't love illegal drugs. I am involved in 20 animal right organizations. I work a lot and Iam not set-up for children.Some of these orphans were going to Westminster and I had planned to see if I could volunteer an hour or so, as needed. Many r babies in diapers. Because of death threats, I do not believe Westminster is getting any orphans (or Balt). May I ad, I never desired to have children, but I wish no human nor animal had to. I realize this idealistic, but we could be kinder people as my religion dictates.I believe as Christians ,we should walk-the-walk and not just talk.If u feel,u have given ,I am not judging u and others. I merely am requesting, a calm attitude while authorities do their work. Recently, the Pope has requesting Catholics, to produce more children.This greatly upsets me. I am in favor of reducing the world population,except for people who really want children, With 97 % o f pregnancies unplanned (or unwanted),we can work on this problem. These r not children brought here by illegal parents They have no parents.Bad people told their relatives, that for a fee ,they would deliver them to the US ,who will accept them. They were scammed AND THEIR COUTRIES R TRYING to spread the word,there is no open acceptance for them here.

Returning the dog to the owner is as bad as releasing the mom on bail who left both a dog and a 7yoRead More child in a hot car while she went shopping. I called the police last year when I spotted a poor dog $tuck in a locked up window shut truck. The owner was in Target. I stayed and snapped pics, then posted it on facebook as documentation. So many people looked and did nothing. It took 15 min for cops to show but it felt like hours. I wonder if its legal for bystanders to bust out windows of vehicles if we see an animal in distress. I wanted to and would have if the doggie looked distressed..

Uhyup. Which is why they finally rounded up all of the Jews and deported them to other places in theRead More Empire.

I don't understand this gay thing !! I say if you want to sin that's on the sinner him or herself !!Read More The only thing I know is there was a story in the Bible that plagued the gays for there actions . Its up to the individual who is the gay person to decide how one wants to live there life. I have practiced tolerance and patients with everyone that I don't agree with , I also cant stand greedy people but as far as Gay people go as long as they don't force themselves on me and try to force me to accept and live there life style then I am ok but you let another man try to touch me in a gay manner and it will be the last thing he does !!!!!

Crimes against children are so heinous that accused pedophiles like this teen-aged squad leader,Read More Sylvain Kustyan, Jerry Sandusky, etc. must be apprehended before they have years to continue to destroy young lives. Sandusky is now safely behind bars. But unfortunately, Kustyan, who has been formally charged with two counts each of 1st Degree Sodomy and Sexual Abuse of a ten-year-old little boy, fled to avoid imminent arrest. Kustyan, formerly of Tuscaloosa, Alabama and Hermin/ Mazingarbe, France, as an English teacher, has led numerous groups of schoolchildren on trips to the US, the UK and Ireland.. Pedophiles condemn their victims to a lifetime of emotional and psychological trauma and often permanent physical ailments as well. Since the average pedophile has 300 different victims in their lifetime and since the recidivism rate among pedophiles is virtually 100% and since there is no effective treatment and no known cure they must be stopped ASAP!
