KKK breaks into a few homes and then comes to the rescue. An age old strategy.

Exactly Amanda, the night before they were arrested and it Involved a cell Phone from what I read,Read More not hurting a baby and right away Nini is talking these 2 ladies did something to the baby. If in fact it was foul Play, they will be Prosecuted, it could end up being just medical. If the baby was crying all day, maybe the Parents should have had the baby checked out though.
Amanda K Hill April 23, 2014 at 10:01 am
I hope no one hurt that poor baby. However, what is raising my suspicion is that DCF took custody ofRead More the family's other children after this incident. Not sure if that was due to something revealed in the police investigation or if its protocol to remove children from the home when the cause of another child's death is unknown. Crying all day could have been caused by an unknown medical issue, but it also made me speculate other things in my mind....I won't speculate here because I don't feel its appropriate. Time will tell.
chuck April 24, 2014 at 05:18 am
If there was foul play, some might be wondering if a "capital offense" was committed.Read More Richard, however, has committed another kind of "CAPITAL OFFENSE."

I don't disagree with you that we're becoming less and less a free country but it's wrong to blameRead More democrats alone. It wasn't dems alone that passed the patriot act. It hasn't been dems alone that have been re-uping it since it was passed the first time. On how bad Hillary will be as a president. Every president is bad in some ways. Reagan raised taxes more than a dozen times. Bush took us to war on two fronts with no way to pay for it. Clinton signed DOMA and DADT. Obama gave away the farm in order to get the Affordable Care Act passed. Papa Bush said that atheists shouldn't be considered Americans. Sure Hillary will be a bad president in some ways.... they are all bad in some way. I can tell you this much though, any president is going to be a worse president when the publicly stated goal of the opposition is to obstruct that president at any and all opportunities. The dems did it to Bush. The republican'ts are doing it to Obama. It's like Palestine and Israel, they'll fight to the death out of spite and habit, neither one of them knowing which one threw the first punch and not caring because winning is the only goal. What America needs are citizens that go into government for the good of the country instead of the good of their party.
Michael Hipp April 24, 2014 at 03:03 pm
Oh, one last point on your last post B. Dub. "Hillary presidency combined with a DemocraticRead More Congress." Ain't gonna happen. Republicant's have gerrymandered the states to absolute death. They have the House for the foreseeable future and they have a good chance at getting the Senate. I can't guarantee you who's going to win in 2016 but I can very well guarantee you that no one party will take executive and legislative branches, both.
Kevin April 24, 2014 at 02:57 pm
As big of a liar and deceiver that she is,can she possibly be worse than the unqualified fool thatRead More we have in there now? My goodness,the idea that a person like her even has a chance to become president of this country shows me how far we have fallen as a nation.Yes,I hear the libs saying "what about Bush"? Well,he never perjured himself,obstructed justice,and flat out lied to the country. He had many faults,and the Iraq war was one,but he didn't despise half the people in this country like she does. Yuck!!!

with caller ID they should be able to point to the caller. Sorry but an out of state telephoneRead More number should be a tip off.

The caller used Skype, via the Internet, and will probably never be found if he took certainRead More precautions unless he's running his mouth about this prank.
Bob West April 24, 2014 at 06:20 pm
@ eddie, I wouldn't mention any specific phone-calling service in case any other arseholes areRead More looking for tips. But for better or worse, those calls are traceable. They have "add-ons" that can fool your friends, but certainly not the NSA. BTW, that phone service was bought by Microsoft a couple of years ago- so much for any illusion of confidentiality. By using it, you "opt in" to give up your privacy, just like with G-mail. Using a computer to make a prank call is a dumb move in itself. Any computer transmits a wealth of information. Non-smart phones are a lot less traceable than anything else. Have you ever seen how many items advertisers and other web sites use to uniquely identify your computer? They can't tell your name but track your unique computer. It's called "computer fingerprinting." As soon as you give your name at a web site they track, they've got you. Check this site sometime to see how unique your computer is-- https://panopticlick.eff.org/ .... I suspect that nobody's putting much effort into tracing this call, because in the big scheme of things, they've got more serious things to deal with. (Unfortunately, unlike our local PDs.) Shame this idiot got so much publicity from his crime. I think the glorifying news "perp walk" should be stopped in virtually all cases.

The Supreme Court is Silly, The Cheif Justice Robert Court is Silly, What do I mean a law is beingRead More pushed in Russia that if your curse in public it is a crime, if you are an elected official it is double. To believe after 50 years we as a country is just going to have people in the power of education, jobs, housing, health, can harm another American because he or she is bias, and that can be the difference of living on the street or competiting for the real thing. Second the Robert court say that if you are arrested and you say no one in my house without a search warrent and a second person is their who does not live there and is there when you get arrested they can say yes and that can be used against you. I believe the 4th amendment. not for sure. This is Silly. The harm is long term. How do you fix the decision at the Schools State School All students who are from the state comes first and out of state students come second Study abroad students come first if there are more students from the state they get all the slots. That will fix it.
Jimmy Vierwepps April 24, 2014 at 06:32 pm
I meant out of state students come third. Then everybody from that state gets a chance. The money isRead More in the Out of state student and the Students who want to study from another country. Why are we denying our State born students a slot at the school. The Out of State Student and the Study abroad student have no standing if a qualified student with a GPA of 2.0 then that student has a right to go to that school. Thats is the solution
Jimmy Vierwepps April 24, 2014 at 06:33 pm

Everyday Mathematics is just one of the programs that makes a heck of a lot of $ off of the millions of textbooks sold to schools that teach to the 'Core.' The Common Core isn't just restricting for teachers & students, it's lining people's pockets.

If it's on the internet it must be true? A small group of parents make up some "facts" andRead More post it on random news sites. So it must be true?

I just happened to look outside and saw him walking away from our driveway. Once I saw him open theRead More neighbors car, I phone him in.

He did have a large folding knife on his possession as well.

FOR THOSE WHO LIKE AMAZON PRIME OVER NETFLIX: Here's an interesting article from today (23 Apr 2014)Read More about how Amazon Prime just got HBO to stream at least some of its older content, plus "HBO GO," to Amazon's new Fire TV box, thereby making NetFlix upset because NetFlix (nor any other streaming service, including HULU) has never been able to get any HBO content; and so Amazon has scored a real coup!

As far as the kid being a runaway..maybe he does face some serious abuse issues at home. He's damn lucky to be alive. But, I raised three boys, and a 16 year old boy can runaway for any collage of reasons. My kids never ran away but, I'm wondering if the fact that the plane was going to HAWAII has anything to do with it. It sounds a little compulsive to me. CPA need good follow up on this.
