Armando Angulo Drug Charges Dropped Because Of Too Much Evidence

Armando Angulo Drug Charges Dropped Because Of Too Much Evidence

Commented Aug 16, 2012 at 17:53:14 in Miami

“Good point. I also find it insulting as a taxpayer that the charges were just dismissed against him, Yet if it was an American citizen, the man would be in prison and taxpayers would be footing that bill for many, many years. We imprison our own, but if you can run away then that's it? I think the cost of keeping the records is worth it. Any way, I hope your theory is correct.”

“thanks. that's the most thoughtful comment anyone has left. i just really hate to think about what its going to be like for next generation. I can't imagine how the young people can be expected to carry that kind of debt when their life is just starting.”

“well forego 31% of my student loan debt and I will pay it off, soon! they won't work with you. unless you've rejected your 15th heart and liver transplant---they couldn't care less. even then, they won't work with you because they don't have to. because they aren't regulated. one post really had it right when they called them loan sharks. prey on the young ones who don't know any better.....”

“Well, good luck with everything, I realize times can be tough.  If you will complain to your Congressman, maybe these commission rates can be reduced to a more palatable level. I'm not sure who sets these rates but it is possibly the Secretary of Education.”

“mr. value investor - by the way, i didn't borrow 300,000. I'm saying the kids today will have to. and seriously, how do you know i didn't fall ill or become crippled trying to save your cocky butt from terrorists? how do you know that? i have a secure job...now. but sometimes bad things happen to honest hard-working people. obviously you have never been laid-off because your job went to china. obviously you have never had to swallow your pride and take the minimum wage job in order to feed your kids....instead of welfare. you are terribly judgmental when you don't know the facts. obviously.”

“really folks, my posts were as a warning. it could happen to you. or someone you love. they will rake you over the coals. with the economy and the outlook as bad as it is, think twice before you borrow. or better yet, don't allow the congress to pass the bill raising the interest rates on college loans. god is anybody out there listening? did any of you read the article? you really think the federally back student loans are getting the bulk of the money collected? NO! it's going to the collectors. and who owns the shares in those corporations? hmmm. did ya think about that? they robbed our parents, they robbed us, now they want to rob our future.”

steve7749 on May 17, 2012 at 20:53:53

“The government gets the BULK of these collections, not the collectors. The collectors get 31% or less. The government gets 69% or more. All collection agencies charge around this amount and they are probably much more effective than having the government try to collect it themselves. In this case being a collector for up to $1 trillion worth of debt can be handsomely rewarding.”

“mighty brave of you to assume i couldn't afford them before the student loan. sometimes circumstances change. how lucky for you to have never lost a job. maybe the student loan was a choice to try to make a better living afterward. i wish i had a life free from tough choices.”

“obviously not very many of you have been in the situation. it's robbery. it's harrassment. it should be regulated! how are these people supposed to make payments on loan when the economy is in the toilet?! I'd rather they worked it. Like when you owe tens of thousands in back taxes, they will work with you to pay it back, even reduce the amount you owe. NOT THE CASE WITH STUDENT LOANS!!! if you don't pay they just keep tacking on more and more interest and fees. i pay back more than three times what i originally borrowed - PLUS INTEREST AND FEES AND PENALTIES! think about your damn kids owing all that. and if you can't pay it, they take it anyway they can. any way they want. owe 300,000 for the next 20 years, credit in the toilet and a minimum wage job. what a future to look forward to.”

bobcouchman on May 17, 2012 at 20:00:26

“should have thought about that before you borrowed up to your eye brows”

Value Investor on May 17, 2012 at 19:46:49

“It's robbery ? Taking out a loan and then not paying it back is robbery. Harassment ? Far from it..... I guess you want them ignore your loan since you refuse to pay ?

You took a loan to get a product.....you got the product.....now pay up as you agreed......taking a loan assumes some risk... nothing is perfect

Now you can't pay and you whine......

Grow up.......a student loan is a legal document and if you were too naive to take a loan without thinking of the future repurcussions than you should be penalized for being immature and naive.”

“bite me. i chose to feed my kids first, student loan was not top priority. now i have pay three f'in times what i borrowed? it's robbery. they can't suck it off the middle class and elderly anymore, so now they are going after the kids. not to mention it's going to cost them about 200 grand for what they claim to be a "decent" education. college is so overrated. and americans fall for it.”

ibe1grump on May 17, 2012 at 19:56:40

“"College is so overrated. and americans fall for it".....According to your writing you now owe three times what you borrowed? And it's robbery? Did you learn to read AFTER you signed the documents? Are you not an American (it's capitalized by the way, something you missed getting your degree?)”

whodathunkitt on May 17, 2012 at 19:29:24

“Maybe you should have waited before having more than 1 child till you paid some of YOUR debt down to a reasonable amount. When you say I chose to feed my kid(s) first, MAYBE having kids before you could afford them was not a wise choice. Being a parent means being a good example...”

“Pot....Nature's way of saying High!

Kids are gonna try the stuff. That's the way it is. Some will like it, some won't. Lots of fun things aren't good for you and everyone has their stress relievers. Why be so judgmental? If your kid comes home with it, maybe try talking to them about it and actually listen to their answers. They will do it if they like it, whether you forbid it or not.”
