“The woman that sued McDonald's did not sue because the coffee was 'hot'. She had severe burns on her thighs, really horrific burns. This case was made light of, to benefit capital gain. To benefit tort reform. In this case, I do think there is responsibility to the girl that chose to drink. Underaged kids drink all the time, alas.”

“Same here! I would not be surprised if they started to create makeup that went bad, just so you constantly had to buy more. Like my Apple laptop. But I have never replaced mascaras after months, and never had an infection.
“I find the death penalty barbaric. Two wrongs do not create a right.
If you wanted to kill others and then kill yourself, and messed it up, it gives the opportunity. A life of hard work is a deterrent, and would make them useful to society.”

“The death penalty in itself just drags out the torment and suffering of the person who is awaitig their executiner. Must be beyond horrible to be sitting there day in and day out knowing sooner or later you are going to be walking that green mile.
Life without possibility of parole at least gives the person a glimpse of mercy and maybe they can start coming to terms with what they have done.
They don't lynch the accused from a tree anymore. Well, hopefully not.
Hard work might actually do them some good and help pay back for their room and board even though I am sure it is not the residence of their choosing.”

“Well guess what? He clearly believes in the death penalty.”
“What is your evidence that it causes violent reactions almost always? If that were actually correct, that almost everyone on antidepressants had a violent reaction, you would need some hard evidence to back it up.”
“Sure everyone makes mistakes. But if a person mistakenly locks there baby in a hot car for 5 hours and the baby is Ok there would be consequences.
If you do something like get in an elevator without your dog, your animal guardianship abilities should be questioned. The whole point was he was walking his dog, so not being attuned to the dogs whereabouts is odd. Of course he didn't want his name used!”
“Found a person's head? This is a grisly story, and I am going to research it more. Why was the young man standing on the train tracks? I wonder if that was deliberate. The fourth death being described as a man's head being found is a way to put it.
"On Saturday evening, the fourth death took place on the L line in Manhattan. The New York Daily News reports that at about 10 p.m., a man's head was spotted between a subway car and platform within the Sixth Avenue station."
Maybe the death took place in the afternoon. 'On Saturday evening a fourth death was confirmed by the discovery of a human head, that of an adult male.' I am a piece of work. These poor individuals have passed away in a horrific manner and I am not a fan of how it's reported. I am sorry. That said, I hope no more of these deaths!”
“At the same time, what happened here is a cautionary tale to young people. Maybe not the ones you think, the sensitive kind souls. The young people that get caught up in bullying and judging as they have no real concept of how it really is hurting the victimized party. Let's say people that had bullied this poor kid were thinking,'Our bullying and general torture of Eric just made him stronger, we are actually not really hurting anyone, just enjoying ourselves.' Sure some of the bullies are inherently not good souls, but some really don't know better. His death is not going to be entirely in vain. He is sending, posthumously, how much he was hurt, by his action, not his words. I disagree about the 'don't make a video', his message is still valid. I just think that it's even more a valid message to educate about sexuality to everyone.. There are people that are ignorant about homosexuality of any race, age, religion or socioeconomic background. The ignorance is propagated in subsequent generations by lack of information. People are entitled to think homosexuality is wrong if they wish, but the general rule of humanity that needs to be addressed is not harming others because of differing view points.”
“My delusional (thinks he is a big boy) 4 pound chihuahua would have went for the guy too. A protective dog will do this, pit bull down to a peanut chi. My other doggy would have licked him, because he's a scooby doo, goof ball type.”
“That's true. So would you eat your cats and dogs? One life form is only treated differently due to cultural variations. Morally, eating any of them is ignorant in my opinion.... To each their own though, but still. I am sure you aren't eating dog patties.”

“Heck no! My main fear is that Rowdy will eat me.”
“Here is a taker. Casey Anthony ruled the news and became a huge media sensation. Countless other babies, toddlers, children are killed regularly. This story had the elements to capture the media's and then the nation's collective attention.
Nobody knows what happened in the case of this particular missing child. Comparing this to Trayvon is like apples to oranges.
The Trayvon story touches on the same chords as the Rodney King or Amadou Diallo story. Like the 'Mississipi Burning' from 1964 incidents.
With this little girl the focus is on how or if she died, with Trayvon it is why he died. In my opinion there is nothing racist about Obama's comment. He also happens to be mixed race. Why don't you be the one to hold some vigils for white missing children? Or spread attention about them in a helpful way?”

“Huh? I don;t quite know what direction you are going in here....um, I never commented on Obama's comment... just the lack there of... I don't expect anything from this president... Unlike him, I am an advocate for ALL children... white, black, chinese. jewish, catholic, muslim....infants, toddlers, teens, etc!!! I DON'T CARE WHAT COLOR THEY ARE.... they are a priority, they are CHILDREN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Casey Anthony created a circus out of her daughter's disappearance... that's why she was captive of the media. HER UNRELENTING LIES.... Just LIKE the lies of Poor JADA JUSTICE'S mother who prostituted her daughter for drugs. I supported the search efforts for both Caylee and Jada, you see... sorry, but until you understand the historical comments, your view is most puzzling and somewhat off base.”

“I expect the president of our country to run the country, not get involved in individual murder cases. He is not paid to stick his nose into every unjust crime in this country - if this is what he prefers to do, then stop trying to be president and move back to Chicago as the crime rate there would give him something to focus on every minute of every day!”
