“I really like the point you bring up! But, I'm guessing there was some damage to his car and the police connected it that way. Tha is just a guss... But, you are right and where has our darn privacy gone!!”

“If they had found damage on his car then it is an entirely different situation. Although it does add much needed evidence to the case again, unless they have a victim and that victim can provide their damage as the evidence to match up with the alleged crash without an eye witness the prosecution is back to square one.
I did read the entire article, but as usual I didn't listen to the report. In the article the only thing that would lead anyone to believe an accident was cause is his FaceBook post.”
“It's important to focus on the good things you do have instead of focusing on all the stress and drama. Although, my life is pretty hectic how I handle it has made me healthier and happier. Also, my daughter is learning great habits by observing the way I work through daily issues.”
“Her thighs are nice, but the way she dresses isn't. I mean, every woman should dress for her sizes. I am a curvy woman with delicious thick thighs but I dress to make them look better... NOT to make em look worse. =)”
“I love and adore her curves. So, don't get me wrong when i say this but HONEY dress for your dang body. Your legs are too big to be wearing the stuff you wear. I mean really!!!!! Your thighs no longer have an ITG Inner thigh Gap..... So just please dress for your size. You are gorgeous, stunning and thick and I LOVE it but dang....... Gross!!!”

“The important thing is that SHE loves and adores her curves, and that she dressed in the way she wants to without giving a fig about what other people think. Saying you love and adore her curves and then telling her to cover them up in a way that is pleasing to your eye is rather silly; she's not dressing for you. The idea that we have to dress for other people is what's perpetuating all the insecurities we instill in young girls and which they carry for the rest of their lives.
Gross? Really? You think a woman who is clearly enjoying her shape and promoting acceptance of self is gross? I think it's more gross when women try so very hard to conform to stick-thin proportions imposed on us by societal acceptance, and thus end up looking like emaciated bobble-heads. Gross is what we do to ourselves as women to be considered "beautiful" when, in fact, our minds are more important. "Dressing for one's size" when the dress is clearly her size? What you're saying is "dress so you don't look GROSS in your size; so I am not compelled to go off on a tirade of rejection after saying how much I "LOVE AND ADORE" your curves."”
“I always say that when it comes to polotics it's not so much about the party as it is the person..... The same goes here. It's not so much about the sex as it is the person and to what level they can get the job done.”
“I usually wish the brutal stubbing of the toe on people that bother me. LOL You know how awful it hurts to stub your baby toe on the corner of the dresser or shower door. The teeth one, now thats new and unlikely. The toe stubbing one is likely to happen.... HAHAHA Just sayin”
“No, you will beleive what I want you to becuase I said to. =) Just kidding, of course we can disagree. I really understand what you are saying and appreciate your opinion. I wish I had a little more faith in our system. But, more so I like what you say about reforming our justice system. We can make our voices be heard.”

“When systems degrade and fall into uselessness, there is always a movement to restore them typically from the outside. While I oppose vigilante justice in principle, I do hope that it is a catalyst toward reform.”
“Well, one thing is for sure. This society hasn't been cicilized in....Oh forever. I agree with what you say however, I don't see it happening. So, for me I rely only so much on our Justice system to do it's job and then I fight for what I beleive is right in my heart.”

“I can respect your beliefs because you have seemingly thought them through instead of responding with a visceral reaction to the news. We can respectfully disagree?”
“My heart breaks for her parents. But, while my heart breaks for her parents I also can't quite understand how this was left to go on for so long. We have a god given right to protect our Childs LIFE at any cost! She attempted to end her life previously why wasn't action taken? I really feel that the parents in this case were neglectful of the situation and damage control wasn't done soon enough! I pray for this girls soul. =(”

“Excusing legitimate medical concerns, her parents are the reason she's dead. You should be holding her parents in contempt for failing in their one obligation as parents, to prepare their children for their life ahead.”

“Joanne Pang, I too wonder ~ although maybe a little less rhetorically ~ what happened. What I'm curious about is what are the barriers her parents ran into trying to defend her? I mean, they changed her school at least once (sounds like more than once). I wonder what they did after she drank bleach. I'm presuming they tried to get her psycho-emotional help. Was it available/affordable? I wonder what they tried to get school administrators to do to curb the student attacks on their daughter. Were they daunted by administrative policy? Was it impossible to involve law enforcement? I wish the article either addressed these types of questions or that someone would investigate this and write about it. I know what you mean when you say it's a parents' imperative to protect & defend their child: what if they tried (in ways we don't know about) and this still was the result?”
“That's right! Because Sometimes we must as a commuinity our justice system is just soooo great.... C'mon what if this were your child. I have little faith in our justice system and the men and women who are to enforce. Being a child of a law enforcement officer I see how corrupt this system is, how overwhelmed they are and how little attention they pay to things of this nature. Sometimes we must come together as a community and stand up for what is right. If history proved that our Justice system was reliable then perhaps people wouldn't have to take it in their own hands.”

“Then we reform the justice system. We campaign for justice. We do not instigate a mob mentality. That is not justice... that's revenge and it has no place in civilized society.”
“Hi Mary, unfortunately I know a lot of people who are on food stamps and 95% are obese. I know these people personally and thru my profession. It's sad!”

“Adult Obesity Facts
Obesity is common, serious and costly
More than one-third of U.S. adults (35.7%) are obese. [Read data brief [PDF-528Kb]]
Obesity-related conditions include heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer, some of the leading causes of preventable death. [Read guidelines]
In 2008, medical costs associated with obesity were estimated at $147 billion; the medical costs for people who are obese were $1,429 higher than those of normal weight. [Read summary]
Obesity affects some groups more than others
Non-Hispanic blacks have the highest age-adjusted rates of obesity (49.5%) compared with Mexican Americans (40.4%), all Hispanics (39.1%) and non-Hispanic whites (34.3%) [See JAMA. 2012;307(5):491-497. doi:10.1001/jama.2012.39].
Obesity and socioeconomic status
[Read data brief [PDF-1.07Mb]]
Among non-Hispanic black and Mexican-American men, those with higher incomes are more likely to be obese than those with low income.
Higher income women are less likely to be obese than low-income women.
There is no significant relationship between obesity and education among men. Among women, however, there is a trend—those with college degrees are less likely to be obese compared with less educated women.
Between 1988–1994 and 2007–2008 the prevalence of obesity increased in adults at all income and education levels.
The above is from a page on the CDC website. It looks like there's a lot more influencing factors besides food stamps, unless you're looking at the fact that people on food stamps are less-educated. In that case, perhaps we need to put more into educating people.”
