“I think people are being overly critical and judgmental; clearly, it was her nerves that gave in and likely nothing more. I am glad that she will be making her rounds on all of the television shows (she may just have the last laugh). It was more than beauty to get her that far so I am believing that she will bounce back just fine. I think it is more important to look at her character, her conduct---what has she done--versus a 30 second response to one single question. Does anyone even know who won the pageant?”

“Okay, so he was a bad kid. The clerk should have called someone to handle the situation--but to take off her belt and whip the kid is unacceptable conduct. I don't believe she deserves to go to prison for 20 years (which is what she is facing), but she did commit a crime and she should have been fired.”

Kristin Marie Baker on Feb 15, 2013 at 01:13:29

“I completely agree with you, Kim. The clerk had the law on her side, even evidence of the boy being destructive and possibly surveillance video of the mother telling her where she could stick it after she asked them to leave. Stores have the right to refuse service to criminals, and the boy's destruction of property, assault on the clerk, and the mother's indifference were all criminal acts. Until the moment the clerk turned and assaulted the kid's behind, which unfortunately for her went above and beyond the crimes the kid was committing. It's also too bad for the kid, because now he's going to see that behaving as an entitled brat allows him to not only get his own way, but get other people in trouble. His behavior will only escalate as he grows up.”

“1. She was put on the spot and just spoke what she believed to be the truth. It is tragic that she was even asked this question.
2. You can achieve the rank of MSgt without paying your child support if the custodial parent doesn't make it a big issue; Gabby's mom probably tried to just take care of matters as best as she can without involving military personnel, which many women do.
3. Even if he didn't pay his child support, doesn't mean he is a "dead beat" dad. She obviously has much love for her dad. Maybe everyone was doing the best they could in these difficult times--who are we do judge?”

“I wonder if Mrs. Marler revised her joke as follows if she would still get as many laughs: Here it goes: A young kid takes and old dusty history book and shows it to his mother. "Mama, what was this instutitution known as slavery in America." The mother looks at her child and says, "slavery was a system in the United States where black people were brought from Africa against their will and were treated like property to be bought and sold and forced to work for hundreds of years against their will without pay; where the women were brutilized and raped by the slavemasters, the men were beaten and lynched if they tried to escape or learned to read or write and families torn apart in order to keep the slaves under this system of brutality." "But mama, don't the people who had slaves and benefited from this system generations later feel bad about that." "They sure don't; they sure don't and that's called amnesia."”

“Yep, me or any of my ancestors had slaves. Or maybe most blacks in America today do not have ancestory in slavery and most whites as well. Additionally, God says not to punish a son for the sins of his father. How many people today were even a glimmer in their father's eye during the time of slavery?

You also need to see the latest research on the slavery system as it existed in America. There is a good podcast on this on EconTalk. Just Google "Slavery EconTalk".”

“I didn't read anywhere Ms. Patton said you had to marry the person while you were actually in college. Many of my friends who met their spouses in high school, college or even graduate school waited until the time was right to marry that person---but they had the advantage of focusing on getting to know the person without the pressures of career etc. I also do not think the article was directed to all women--she was giving advice to those women who find that family is as or more important than career. I think she said it best when she said, it was just advice---take it or leave it!”

“Ms. Patton--I don't think your advice is so terrible--although it may not be the answer for everyone. A close friend of my mom sat me down at age 23 before I started Harvard Law School and told me not to leave there without a husband. At the time, I simply chuckled to myself. My mom actually had advised me the opposite--stay single, enjoy life , travel, focus on my career and especially enjoy my independence!! My mom, a homemaker, and my dad were married for 40 years until she died, so I was surprised at the advice. Nevertheless, I took my mom's advice over her well-meaning friend's advice. Although I am now happily married (got married at the age of 46), I wish I could have found my husband twenty years ago when I was in my 20's. There is no greater gift than family---not even a successful career. The statistical evidence doesn't lie--it is harder to find a mate as you get older and it is harder to have children as you get older--those are just the facts. College and especially graduate school are amazing places to meet wonderful people--including a potential spouse!!! The advice isn't for everyone--but for those who place family above career----should think about it before being overly critical.”

“This is South Carolina (and even though I am a Gamecock) the penal system is especially harsh. I kid you not that my friend's brother received 6 months in Maximum Security Prison or driving without a driver's license (not a DUI, not a suspended license)....driving without a license! Believe it or not, we were able to get him released due to a mix up with the DMV records...however, there were at least 10 other people in the South Carolina prison system serving similar sentences for the same crime. Apparently, if you get more than a 90 day sentence, you go straight to the State Prison system. With respect to this particular issue, I agree with the poster below... life seems like a very harsh sentence....I would now like to see the entire trial....I wonder if it was taped.....”

“Every case that goes to trial in the united states gets recorded and is public record. You will have to pay for the transcripts though.

“Not too sure what poster you are agreeing with. I don't think life for killing a child is harsh!

“The View should bring in Professor Randall Kennedy, Harvard Law School who wrote a book called N*gger (traces the history of the word all the way up to the hip hop culture's use of the word). As Kennedy states regarding the N word: “It has been an important feature of the worst episodes of bigotry in American history. It has accompanied innumerable lynchings, beatings, acts of arson and other racially motivated attacks upon blacks. It has been featured in countless jokes and cartoons that both reflect and encourage the disparagement of blacks. It is the signature phrase of racial prejudice.” I think all Sheri was saying is that when a non-African-American says the word, it reminds her of America's ugly past.”

Indeed, James Bond is a made up character unlike Jesus and Cleopatra yet Hollywood had no problem allowing such roles to be played by individuals who did not look like the original person.”

“(part 2) Furthermore, there was absolutely NO physical evidence linking Troy Davis to the murder. You are naive in thinking that the police did not pressure witnesses to identify Davis in the first instance-based upon threat of prosecution. These tactics have been utilized for years to obtain convictions. You are fortunate and privileged that you have never had to bear the weight of the State against you. There is a good article which I implore you to read that talks about why the line up and indentification evidence in Troy Davis' case was flawed in the first place. You also have to consider the statistical evidence relating to the inherent problems with eye witness testimony. Clearly, there were problems that occurred in the Troy Davis case. I would also like to know why you have disergarded the evidence relating to the three witnesses who testified that another person confessed to the crime. Also, did the State ever investigate claims of relating to the police tactics? I will never rest easy when there is a system so flawed and one group in particular suffers as a result of those flaws. Why is it a statistical fact that blacks are executed more often for killing whites than black against black crimes or white against black crimes? For anyone to argue that this case did not call into question the flaws in the death penalty system in the U.S. should cause everyone to sleep uneasy at night.”

chickatty2 on Sep 23, 2011 at 00:59:21

“Really? Have YOU read the court record? There was in fact physical evidence linking Davis to the murder. And there were multiple eye witnesses who did NOT change their statements who identified him as the shooter.

When you've been to law school and practiced criminal law for twenty years, we'll have a discussion. I am not disregarding evidence any more than the district judge did. I evaluated the evidence and came up with the same conclusion. Go read the order. Then you'll know that there was only ONE person who said he was the shooter, then admitted he only said it to impress a girl.”

“I respectfully disagree. When a jury is determining the credibility of any witness, the attorney has the right to challenge any changes in testimony--whether you consider the change minor or major (it is for the jury to determine). What you call "small changes" in testimony some would consider lies. TAt a minimum, these "changes" in the testimony of 7 of the 9 witnesses were never considered by a jury.

Second, the Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996 bars death row inmates from presenting evidence that could have been presented during the first trial. The court ruled that the defense could not bring in this new evidence because it was not raised during the trial. When someone's life is on the line, should legal technicalities prevail over the search for the truth. Legal experts argue that this law prevents many death row inmates from "proving their innocence"--based upon this newly acquired evidence.Third--you have totally disregarded the fact that hundreds of prisoners have been falsely accused and sent to their death on eye witness testimony and have only been exhnorated (some walking off death row) because of new technology and DNA evidence. One such witness appeared on CNN yesterday and spoke of the agony of beingon death row for 12 years under similar circumstances. The best point that he made was that the State can always release someone from life in prison, but you cannot release someone from the grave. (to be continued)”

“Where did you get all of that from the story.

Would the student have been subject to ridicule if she had walked in wearing a shirt in support of the Japanese team. I don't think so. Also, the advice--lifes tough-get a helmet--is not fair advice for a young child in a school room setting. I would also like to add that there was nothing that indicated that this student was an illegal alien--she simply said she is Mexican. In fact, I would guess that she was probably born in the U.S. Furthermore, if the teacher cannot control such outbursts, she should not be teaching. She or he should save such outbursts to share with her friends--it does not belong in the classroom....

It is simply speculation that she is the one who did that and how can you send a 21 year old woman to death row for 1st degree murder based upon speculation (i.e. because she partied for 31 days and didn't report her daughter missing?). One thing doesn't prove the other; listen to the press conference at the conclusion of the trial by the prosecution--even they admitted that their case was a very difficult case to prove--that is from their own mouths---it was not such as easy case as you seem to want to make it based upon information that you obtained from the media and other sources that were not even presented at the trial. I find it ironic that so many people are saying that the jurors didn't understand when they have allowed this same jury system to send thousands of minorities to death row and to life in prison...now all of a sudden people are saying the jury system doesn't work----how hypocritical.

There was enough evidence even without DNA to convict of at least manslaughter. By her own account or lie, her child drowned in the pool on June 16, but she never called 911. That doesn't warrant a manslaughter charge to you? What about negligence? Parents get charged with negligence on a daily basis in this country for leaving a child unattended in the car for a few minutes. This woman didn't report her child missing of call 911 for help. Come on now. This jury COULD have and SHOULD have convicted her on something other than lying to the cops. And for the record, I got my information by watching the trial on TV, not info I got from the media. And I saw the interview with the DA too, and although he may have said it wasn't an easy case, he still STRONGLY believed his case was strong enough to win and I agree.

Also on Amazon.com are the books "Jesus, the Bible and Homosexuality (Jack Rogers), What the Bible Really Says About Homosexuality (Daniel Helminiak) and Dirt, Greed and Sex; Sexual Ethics in the New Testament (L. William Countryman). These are very well written books which explain what the Bible really says and does not say about the issue. For example, it shatters the myth that Sodom and Gomorrah was destroyed because of homosexuality and gives you the Bible verses, including the quote directly from Jesus' mouth of why the cities were really destroyed. The Church has used the Bible to oppress women, justify slavery and now allow hatred towards a group of people. This is not what Jesus taught. Once again, I am glad the pastor has come to the truth.”

“Nice try, but just because some liberal theologian writes a book saying "what the Bible really says," doesn't mean it's true. Everyone tries to scratch out the parts that they don't like, or that point out their pet sins.”
