Peter Clerkin April 17, 2014 at 10:49 pm
OK here is my take on DiNardo being so worked up and basically accusing McKinney of reversing hisRead More position. IT is that McKinney said IF the legislature repealed it, meaning the majority on lawmakers representing the people of their district wanted it repealed he would sign to repeal as the MAJORITY wanted it despite what ever his personal beliefs may or may not be. The dems just can't stand it when they can't control the little people since they think of themselves as so much smarter and they know better the all those little people. I read it as McKinney would truly represent the common person. I was taught it is the elected officials who represent the peoples majority view NOT what the elected official thinks or maybe believe. I could care less what ANY elected official believes if they represent the majority view of the people they are doing their job. WE need more elected officials who will work for the people and November elections will be the time to voice majority rule.

So, Chuck, to use your "shirt from Job Lot" example, you are proposing a 20 year sentenceRead More for a Larceny 6 charge, the lowest chargeable offense, in the lowest category of misdemeanor offenses, that being Class C, for a juvenile? What about the toddler than grabs a pack of gum at the checkout while mom is busy paying for groceries? Lock up the 2 year old and throw away the key? I know police officers now, that had run ins with the law as a juvenile. Why throw everyone away? Let me ask you this, if this is your true school of thought on the subject, how would you feel if your child fell into that category? Before you say your child wouldn't lets presume for the sake of this conversation, they did. Would you still be gung ho to toss your own child away for 20 years? That mentality is exactly WHY so many kids become bad seeds, they are shown no one cares, everyone's against them and has them labeled as a loser. Not to mention, in 20 years time we would have individuals that went away as youths, that have become adults and have spent the bulk of their lives institutionalized. Grown adults coming back into society after a lifetime of being institutionalized. What do you think the society and town you live in would be like then? I wonder if what you say is for shock value, attention, or if you are just that .....jaded. By the way, hope your hair feels better...

Does this mean I can count on your vote, Amanda? The plan would still, by and large work. It mightRead More take a generation to work itself through. yeah...I know...what if a two year old ate some grapes at the Big Y?? We'll address the "what ifs" when they happen. 45 year olds coming back into society?? OK, so they either shape up or ship out again to prison. As i said, the prisons would eventually be empty anyway, so there wouldn't be any 45 year olds coming back out anyway. Look, obviously this is tongue-in-cheek, as you began to figure out near the end of your reply. Still, I don't see a better plan out there. What we have now has been abject failure. System's broke. It's not gonna get any better. Towns like Naugatuck will continue to be overrun with miscreants and punks who either didn't get enough love or were spanked too many times. Libs will continue to give them 300 chances to "do better." Program after program will be thrown their way to help them "see the light" all at the expense of good, hardworking folk like me... with NO results to show for it except drained wallets.
Amanda K Hill April 16, 2014 at 11:34 pm
Chuck, I don't agree with 300 chances to do better. But we are humans, we all make mistakes, and asRead More youths we all have made bad, and/or stupid choices, some worse than others. But if a kid screws up once, I don't think they should be tossed away. There are definitely kids who are repeat offenders, and clearly have no intention of changing ever. But there are also good kids that get caught up with a bad kid or bad crowd and use bad/stupid/idiotic judgment, but clearly aren't a threat to reoffend again. The main focus of the juvenile justice system is intervention; to intervene, redirect, and divert kids from delinquent behavior, so that they eventually become productive citizens when they are adults. Can they all be redirected and diverted? No, just like some adults can't be either. If you ask me, HOME is where these things need to be fixed. When a kid is repeatedly delinquent, I blame the parents. Sorry if that offends anyone.

Here's the story I posted this morning and was censored by PATCH Pistol Turned to ‘SubmachineRead More Gun’ By Clueless Media April 15, 2014 | Filed under Constitutional Issues,corruption,Culture,Culture Of Corruption,Democrats,Dumb Criminals,Gun control,Liberals,Media | Posted by Warner Todd Huston Once again we get proof of how mindless and clueless the media is, how they don’t fact check, but just mindlessly pass on each other’s bad work ad infinitum. This time it happened with a story about a criminal who used a .22 caliber pistol in a crime but one clueless reporter turned it into a “submachine gun” and hundreds of his mindless colleagues followed suit passing the lie on and on and on. Clueless reporter Darryl Holliday of DNAinfo Chicago, a website that caters to local news, reported on an incident that was perpetrated by a man from West Garfield Park who began wielding a .22 caliber pistol in a grocery store because he didn’t want to pay the 22 cents tax on a bottle of pop he was trying to buy. Holliday “reported” that the crook “pulled an Intratec submachine gun out of a Gucci satchel,” and in the next paragraph again claimed the piece was a “submachine gun” saying, “Officers arrived on the scene shortly after to find Shelton’s Gucci bag open on the counter as well as 15 bullets in the blue steel .22-caliber submachine gun–eight live rounds in one magazine, five in another and one in the chamber, according to court documents.” Of course, it is clear that reporter Holliday doesn’t have any idea what he’s rambling on about. The .22 caliber Intratec pistol is not a “submachine gun. It is a semi-automatic pistol like every other semi-auto pistol. A submachine gun is an automatic rifle that uses pistol cartridges instead of larger ones such as rifle or armor piercing cartridges. A one-hand-held version of this weapon is called a “machine pistol,” but it is also fully automatic. The Intratec pistol used in this crime is not a fully automatic weapon, however. It is semi-auto-meaning it fires only once when the trigger is pulled. It does not expel a stream of bullets like a fully automatic weapon does. Yet, as soon as this story went live on April 13, dozens of other so-called news outlets took up the claim that this dolt used a “submachine gun” in his crime. All one need do is put “Nahshon Shelton submachine gun” in any search engine and dozens of so-called news stories will be revealed saying that the criminal used a “submachine gun.” It all just shows that whenever you see a report on guns in the Old Media establishment, you should not trust it. They don’t even know the proper definitions of firearms terms and from there all their “facts” are suspect.

Having lost a child, I can say these families will mourn for as long as they live, and will have to find a "new normal" as EVERYTHING is changed for them now...I wish them strength, there is nothing quite like burying a child. Appreciated are the messages of respect and sympathy. It can be annoying to get news from areas other than your own, however the new Patch is doing things differently, and show no evidence of changing it back.....my best advice would be to ignore stories not in your area, and to write your editor directly, and share your comments with those who can make changes.
