“I doubt the DA would touch this. Too much work, and it will plead down to a misdemeanor. The parents can pay for the damage, or better yet, Junior can. Why would you turn this over to YOUR insurance? She knows who did it. It sounds like it was just a really bad judgement call on this kid's part. And, yeah, based on the fact that it's on the web forever, I'm sure the cops know all about it.”
“When I was about 11 (and you could go out without having a parent, an AK47, and a GPS unit), a friend needed to mail something, so we walked to the post office. She was short 50 cents, and a lady behind us gave her the money. When my friend offered to pay her back, she assured us it was okay. I've never forgotten her kindness, and I try to help whenever possible. Back in the day 50 cents was a pretty good chunk of change. There are good people in this world.”
“I'm agree with you. What they believe is their right. I think their food is terrible. There isn't one in our area, and I won't drive to eat at one.”

“You are so wrong
They have abolutley the best chicken sandwich there is. You are probably a yankee and don't have a taste as to what good food is. Boston and Chicago is Obama towns and who cares what they think. Obama started this mess but we are going to get him out come November.”
“There is no excuse for beating a child with a belt for any reason. And what the reason for disciplining a child for not catching a baseball? I don't have a problem with discipline (not beating a child) when her or she has broken a household rule. Jalasian, I can't believe your mother hit you for not scoring in whatever sport you played. If she did, I feel sorry for you. I'm sure she thought she was teaching you right from wrong.”
“My mother swore by Oil of Olay. Her skin was beautiful. And she washed her face with Dial soap!”

“So true. I have met more women with georgeous skin and they told me they used OoO. I tried it for a while, but it seemed too thin in consistency for me. These women I have met tho used it and looked great. Should have used it longer than I did.”
“I remember when our band teacher left his wife for one of his students. Back then (no, I won't list a date) everyone shook their collective heads, said "What was he thinking?", and left it at that. I wondered "What was SHE thinking?". I hope they're still married. So this isn't something new. It just makes the news now.”
“Reverend Al and Jesse Jackson won't get involved because it won't get them the headlines Trayvon's story has. Mr. Martin is a hero. What a totally selfless act. The gangbangers (yes, they do exist in Inglewood) was worthless pieces of humanity. I hope his son will realize his father gave his life for him and won't join up.”

“Speaking as a black person, I really wish that people like you would stop pretending to care about the loss of black lives. Your entire purpose in this thread is to attack other people, and you're using the death of this amazing man in order to do it.
Would you even be in this thread commenting if you didn't have a point you wanted to make about Sharpton or Jackson? I honestly don't think so. I think you'd skip over this thread and move on to something else.
So why don't you go ahead and do that now, please. SKIP OVER THIS THREAD. No one needs your fake sympathy. No one needs your fake concern. Go find a thread about Sharpton and Jackson and talk about them there.
It's sick that every thread involving a black person has people like you in it commenting about Sharpton and Jackson. Do I go into every thread about whites talking about Jeffrey Dahmer and Charles Manson? NO, because I view whites as individual human beings and I don't feel the need to talk about OTHER whites when I'm reading about ONE INDIVIDUAL WHITE PERSON.
But you? And people like you? Every black tragedy is just an OPPORTUNITY. We're not even individuals to you, we're just opportunities to say something negative about some other black person. You're SICK.”
“Wow, after reading the slide show, I'm amazed people still do business with Bank of America. Does anyone think they'll ever get it together? I got into an argument with a credit card company (not BofA) after my father died. After two death certificates, and numerous phone calls, they couldn't seem to understand he'd passed away. The woman insisted they had to talk to him. When I asked her how she could be so stupid, she replied, "It's company policy."”
“All I can say is WOW. That is one scary young person. Rehabilitated? The possibility of parole? Maybe when she's 105. Get off the "Prozac made me do it". She wrote about it, she enjoyed it (God forbid), she can do the time.”
“It was stupid to post it to the web. It was stupid to do it in the first place. Police take things like this seriously. If "wut" and "wen" are your level of education, no wonder you were arrested. You truly need help.”
“Some people believe they can save the world. This lady is in need of some serious help. PTSD. Wow, what an overworked and overused diagnosis. There are those who truly suffer from it, and it is trivialized as a catchall for anyone who's accused of a crime. And what an excuse. I caught her using my laptop.”
“The husband of a woman I worked with tried this same scam. Lots of money was collected to help them. I didn't contribute because something felt wrong about it. People thought I was so cruel and didn't hesitate to let me know. Imagine their embarrassment when he was arrested for fraud. His wife was so horrified she offered to resign. Of course, she returned all of the money then divorced the miserable cretin.”
“Am I missing something? Where does it say she's planning a law suit? How sad that it took a "media storm" to have this injustice overturned. It was yet another substitute teacher to cause a problem. Don't these districts train their subs in what to look for and listen to? Talk about overreaction! Yes, I was a sub, and now I work for a school district. Yes, I have reported children when I've heard them say things like I'm going to kill you or I'm going to set fire to the classroom. (And yes, I've heard both.) Then I let someone with more authority investigate. I've also heard kids say someone's cute or pretty. I just laugh.”
“OMG, what is wrong with this nation? Are we that paranoid? A nine year old? And for a nice comment? If he'd used profanity or a derogatory term, then I could understand it. As for the child who hit another. Yes, suspension is in order. I don't care where he hit him. Striking a fellow student is grounds. It will get you between three and five days where I work. I was once accused of sexual harassment (by someone who overheard me) because I told our principal I liked his NEW tie. The principal was thrilled that someone noticed it. If the comment isn't directed AT you, stay out of it.”

“There is no excuse for hitting another child, but some schools should do more to stop bullying. I've read of several cases in which children finally defended themselves after repeated physical bullying and then they got suspended, yet nothing ever happened to the perpetrator.”
