His disgusting act deserves the death penalty or life with a chance for parole . If we are luckyRead More another inmate might take care of the prolem .

life in prison is to good for this low life he should be tied to four horse and pulled apart thisRead More would be more fitting to life with parol in 30 years..

I'm so sick of bleeding hearts thinking that prison is good enough for these psychos! I just do notRead More understand the mentality that if we, as a society, condone the death penalty that we are somehow barbaric, sick or vengeful. What is wrong with you??? Do you really think it makes us a better society for continuing to support people like this killer for the rest of their lives? Do you understand how much money that costs our country EVERY DAY? I understand that perhaps you feel that there are some innocent people sitting in prison right now and, for those few, we need to be cautious in exacting final justice. However, this psycho admitted that he did it...described it in detail...he is guilty...there is no doubt about that. Furthermore, there is NO...let me repeat that...NO help for him. There is no amount of rehabilitation, no drug, no shock therapy, no surgery, no magic drink...NOTHING...that will help him or change him. I have worked in a correctional setting for many years...with some of the worst criminals in history...(who, by the way, have since been executed)...I have seen them on a daily basis, talked to them, listened to them, watched their daily actions. Trust me when I tell you, there is NOTHING that will change them and I have not lost one second of sleep over their executions...in fact, the opposite is true...I sleep better knowing they are GONE...gone permanently...not just 'put away' for a while. I understand that you think you are being compassionate...you are not. It is a service to society, in soooo many ways, to be rid of them. THEY are the true animals...let me take that back...they aren't even animals...I have two dogs...they have never hurt anyone...I value their lives more than any one of these sick individuals. I can't call them people, I can't call them animals...both are above what they are. There really is no name for it...but I will assure you...they have NO place in society...even in an incarcerated society. Judge me if you will...call me harsh if you must...my opinion comes from seeing and knowing...and you can take my statements how ever you wish...but I know what I know...and you can take that to the bank.

WAZE is a great app ! It gives an audio warning when you get close to a reported speed trap EveryRead More single time a money grubbing cop gets his feelings hurt and issues a ticket to someone for flashing their lights , the court rules against the revenue collection officer In the states at least . What's the deal with all the non Atlantans commenting on this patch? Anyhoo. Cops use to serve and protect , now it's harass and collect . All they care about is revenue collection The pudunk "city" of Emerson parks their one and only cop on I-75 running radar all day Same with the scumbag cops in the "city" of Holly Springs All they care about is money , movin it from your pocket to theirs I use WAZE and have recently ordered a laser jammer The laser jammers ARE legal in the US ( probably not legal for you maple leafs) it's just a light bulb See Guysoflidar.com for test info. Most laser jammers make your car invisible to the revenue collection scumbags Valentine One is the best radar detector on the market
userbronco April 24, 2014 at 07:35 am
And when / if you do get pulled over, don't bother asking the cop for a warning , unless you haveRead More large breasts, or are politically connected you're getting a ticket. Your main concern is not the fine its the points on the DL . . You should ask the cop if they will reduce the ticket a little , most times they will drop it enough to no get any points (less than 15 over in Georgia is no points) If the cop won't reduce it. Then you should wait a couple weeks and call the prosecutors office. They will often reduce it or agree to not report the violation to the state in exchange for you paying the fine without going to court and clogging up their court system But that's always your last resort . If everyone that got a ticket went to court the court system would collapse . Too bad most people don't. Every hour the cop is in court is an hour he is not out harassing more drivers for minor violations . Because if you plead guilty and find out later that the scumbag city didn't actually have a permit from the state to operate radar in that particular street ( as Forest Park, Jonesboro and several other money hungry towns recently got caught doing) then you can't sue em later . If you challenge it in court and lose , and find out later the city is in violation of some requirement then you can sue em .
userbronco April 24, 2014 at 07:49 am
Oh and wHen the revenue collection officer asks to search your. Vehicle , " I don't consent toRead More searches " is what you need to practice saying . If you have something obviously illegal in plain sight they can seach. Otherwise you have to give Them permission. Which they need or they wouldn't be ASKING. They'd be telling you they're gonna search . When you refuse them permission they will huff and puff and threaten to call in the drug dog. Blah blah.blah Bring it on steroid head . Then you say "am I under arrest or am I free to go?".

What I do not understand is ……this guy is in the court room and just got sentenced,Read More and was therefore (or should have been) in the custody of court officers/police ……How the heck did he get away in the first place and why did they not catch him before he got into his truck. Someone needs to take a look at that.

FSG April 7, 2014 at 06:03 pm
If you're on Covington Highway, the Decatur police will not respond to your traffic accident, norRead More will the Decatur fire department. Decatur sanitation will not pick up your trash. You can't get a Decatur business license or a Decatur building permit. Decatur zoning does not apply nor does Decatur code enforcement. You can't vote for Decatur's mayor or city council. Your kids can't attend Decatur schools. Hell, your dog can't even be in a Decatur dog park. On the plus side, our property taxes are dramatically lower. You do, however get your mail through the Decatur post office, so if the USPS is your standard, then Decatur does extend south and east (and north).
Keith April 7, 2014 at 06:41 pm
FSG then why does that area carry the Decatur name and zip code? Has city leadership commented onRead More the situation or looked at improving that area to more closely resemble the vibe and feel of Decatur?
Ari Meier April 10, 2014 at 11:56 pm
Keith, this is because the USPS assigned these areas Decatur zip codes long ago. Zip codes and cityRead More limits are almost never contiguous. This is quite common. For instance, I work in the city of Sandy Springs, in the city proper, but my zip code is an Atlanta zip code. Although the Sandy Springs police serve us. The reality is that people rarely have issues with this until property values and sense of pride is an issue. This is normal and nothing is wrong with feeling that way. As recent as 40 years ago, these outside the city of Decatur areas were prestigious suburban addresses. Things started socially and economically changing over the years, but the USPS never changed the zip code designations.

The attacker is a bully and his parents were fully aware of it. As a parent of a non physicallyRead More violent bully, you know when your child is a bully because he bullies his siblings. I used to get complaints from parents of frightened children about my son all the time. My son was finally cured of his bullying ways when another bully punched him with brass knuckles on. Well wishes to the Egan family. This little boy did not deserve this. Nobody does.

If thats the case then Melissa Hickson, he deserved what he got, my neighbors daughter was bulliedRead More for a long time, the bullies would be so bad that they even followed her home, waiting down the street to catch her outside, she told her parents but they didn't do anything, when she finally had enough and fought back, she was expelled, and had to go to alternative school.

Something important to think about regarding this situation is ...almost every kid perpetrating aRead More school mass shooting WAS a victim of bullying ...and they had enough. So, let's just brush this crime under the rug and pretend it didn't happen ...and see what happens next.
