Any valid argument for the deceased is gone. To destroy people that had nothing to do the incidents property, steal from innocent people and act like you do not know right form wrong shows you do not have the intellect to be treated any better than you are treating others.
At the first sight of problems with the past year as an example the mayor should have asked for the national guard. She waited to long.
With the news I watched last night, many people are identifiable. They should be sought out and arrested. Tried for destruction of property, in sighting riots, and hate crimes.
I do understand their frustration. I had a family member attacked by a person of a race other than hers. She now fears that race. It happened unprovoked. Should I hate all that race? Should I and my family hate all that look like the attacker? Should we go and destroy others property?
I don't believe it would help any more than this has. What as a nation do people expect? I choose to be the change I wish to see. I also choose to protect myself by all means possible.

I truly feel sorry for these people, but with the way things have been going the past year in this country, I think we may need to save our funds for the mess we have right here in The USofA.

Talk about a pantie raid.

Certain cars catalytic converters bring a pretty good buck. Junkies are taking anything they can get for money to get their dope. It's a shame that they cost people more money than the price they get at local scrapyards. People just can't afford to stay in business with behavior like this taking place. The poor business or home owner isn't allowed to protect their property either. Only if they enter the structure or threaten bodily harm. Time to carry a gun and a knife to place in the POS's hand after the encounter.

Sounds like a sweet young lady. I bet they get married next month.

Unbelievable. Her PERS should be liquidated. It seems these people never are held accountable.

Sad that when Ohio and the Fed was willing to pay $0.87 on the dollar all these districts laughed at Y'town and Warren. Now they see these big beautiful buildings and want their own. To late. People have even less money now than they did when those buildings were built 8-10 years ago.

If all public schools are made charter, you will have the same problems (and in many cases already do) with funding. It won't go to the teachers, it will go to those that own the school. Further, they will always be crying for more money as well. Public funded private business never saves money, provides the same quality of service, nor is accountable.
Again, the teachers nor their unions are the problem. The problem lies, in read my comment (4) over. I am not a teacher nor do I work for a school district. I'm in my mid 50's and only ever belong to a union one year of my working life.
The villains are the administrators, not the teachers. The same has happened at our state funded colleges and universities. We cannot continue to compare private industry wages to public servants. Wages of private industry do not account pensions, benefits and compensation of time off. That is the reason public workers were given such things.
I agree there are many problems. Most are not the result of those that do the work for the public. It is administration voting themselves raises, travel allowances that travel is already paid, exorbitant amounts of time off, retirement account (beyond normal pension) compensation, etc... that is the problem. Look to see your local school board member is compensated some time. Many districts give pension contribution, health care and a fairly good salary for a 4-8 hr/week or biweekly position.
Superintendent, Assistant Superintendents, multiple principals, administrative assistants, secretaries, and secretaries to secretaries. Ask what your football coach makes, your basketball coach, and all their assistants. Remember most of these guys have secretaries as well. These list rage on. Get my point?

I guess it would be hard to admit one needlessly took anothers life over something that more than likely is trivial. I'd bet he gets off as easy as the others. 6-8 years. BFD. I'd bet the other family don't see this as a fair punishment. Yet, they were out on the street as well acting like fools. It is a shame that a tragedy is required of some people to see that some things just need let go of.

My bad for the Charlie Staples. I tried to stop the post but it went on. I realized after pushing post, Charlie's is on down the road.
