After reading the other story I'm wondering if she was trying to rob him.

I see this is the same Ms.

I see this is the same Ms. Walker who was shot and wounded by a home owner during a break-in four years ago, and now is being charged with murder. Shame she was not kept in jail longer as a life may have been saved.

All she needs is love and

All she needs is love and understanding. A group hug and she will be fine. We need to focus on the REAL criminals-the producers of profit. These are the ones that are evil and the root of all of our problems. Have them all jailed and their assets taken for redistribution. This poor lady is a victim of the greed on wall street.

Copperhead, I love your

Copperhead,

I love your satire, but unfortunately Wall Street really is full of arch criminals.

I love the way you try to spin this and I really do appreciate your sense of humor, but no one I know is calling for murders to not be punished, but you all are certainly defending the Wall Street hoods who pulled the greatest caper against the Middle Class in history. All in plain sight and with the absoulte support of the "bought and paid for" giverment.

Then to add insult to injury, we tax payers rewarded them for their activities by bailing them out after they had become "too big to fail."

May they choke on an olive from their martini, or drown in their Olympic sized pools.

Economic equilibrium through fair play and ethical business practices is the goal, not wealth redistribution.

De Oppresso Liber,

Brad

Ella necesita amor y

Ella necesita amor y comprensión, en serio; junto con el perdón, la educación, límites, consecuencias, habilidades y un propósito. Si encontró culpable de este crimen, ella además necesita la medida más completa de la ley. Estamos asumiendo ella correspondía a ningún bien basado en sus antecedentes, y eso puede ser cierto o no.

Let's make marijuana legal,
Unpublished

Let's make marijuana legal, crack legal, methamphetimines legal, heroin legal, robbery legal, armed robbery legal, and last but not least murder legal. It appears that these are perfectly ok with some "intellectual" segments of society and a normal way of life in certain communities. Only allow the murderers to dole out the death penalty and force those dadburn law abiding citizens to live by the criminals rules. Have a wonderful day!
