"mngordo" -- Your precious Saint Trayvon was a anti-white racist homophobicRead More gangsta-wannabe, none of which the media chose to dwell on -- but those are the (un-PC) facts. Just because a night-watchman was following you does not give you the right to bash his head into the pavement. Your sympathy for this creep is highly misplaced, thanks to the media turning him into a martyr (or maybe your own anti-white racism).

Some of you posters should read the post of Jack Hess and learn something. You do not just keepRead More shooting to ensure someone is dead - this ain't a combat zone. Some of these comments just feed the anti gun anti second amendment crowd with grist for the mill. I'm not defending these two teens - but the actions of this guy from the reported facts went way beyond anything that can be justified. This isn't comparable to Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin (and the nonsense I've read in some of these posts about Zimmerman stalking him are just that nonsense) and this guy deserves to spend time in the state penitentiary.

As far as labelling me/us as woman-haters, again that was aimed at a few other people.

You cannot offer education to any person who has not had the foundation of paternal guidanceRead More beginning at birth. The maturation of the human entity revolves around initial care as an infant which means communication both oral and by tactile sensation. NURSING an infant is one of the MOST importatnt things that may be offered as a beginning point. Any amount of the process is good, but continuing for the better part of a year is best. TALKING to the infant is also paramount in awakening the receptiveness of the brain as the eyes develop and begin to truly see. Show and demonstrate any and all things. And continue through the pre-teen years. When ANY child is prepared in these ways he or she will be READY to begin secondary schooling and on into the college level and become a resposible, productive AMERICAN. Do as I did. Finish high school. Go to college & get a degree (I paid for myself). Be RESPONSIBLE for yourself. AND Be a GOOD PARENT.. PEPARE your child. THAT is YOUR JOB!!! And THANKS to my parents!!!

FOR THOSE WHO LIKE AMAZON PRIME OVER NETFLIX: Here's an interesting article from today (23 Apr 2014)Read More about how Amazon Prime just got HBO to stream at least some of its older content, plus "HBO GO," to Amazon's new Fire TV box, thereby making NetFlix upset because NetFlix (nor any other streaming service, including HULU) has never been able to get any HBO content; and so Amazon has scored a real coup!

Carol April 24, 2014 at 11:39 am
Mrs. G, you make a good point about kids being with others more like them, however as a step parentRead More to a schizophrenic/bipolar child, they never have insight into their own mental illness or illness and do not want to mingle with those who are like them. It's a very hard thing to manage. The girls who committed these crimes against this boy should spend years in prision and they need a good mental evaluation. They are depraved and lack any kind of empathy at all.

Then, there is animal cruelty involved, another terrible crime, plus, harassment of all kinds, leudness, & who knows what else.

On other comments on other papers many have this kid kicked out... Although allegedly he went afterRead More the driver nobody got hurt. He did the right thing and took a cab instead of driving. I didn't know it cost that much to drive to Arnold! Although Annapolis isnt a college town we do have a "college" in our town. These kids work ten times harder than the average college kid. So on the weekends they go into town and blow off some steam. Some locals are annoyed by the mids. Really? Let it go and have fun. I hope things get better for this kid. I hope it wakes up some that tip the scale on a regular basis. I wish people were more forgiving. He didn't hurt anyone and drank too much and took a cab.

Being a former enlisted man, I would hope the academy could weed out the future order givers, but IRead More can tell you it does not. Any midshipman who can't behave like a gentleman does not deserve to be an officer and a leader of men.

I agree with B. Dub 100%! How was this kid able to scale a fence and just walk right over to theRead More plane? TSA: for all the harassing you do in the terminal...you ain't all that!! As far as the kid being a runaway..maybe he does face some serious abuse issues at home. He's damn lucky to be alive. But, I raised three boys, and a 16 year old boy can runaway for any collage of reasons. My kids never ran away but, I'm wondering if the fact that the plane was going to HAWAII has anything to do with it. It sounds a little compulsive to me. CPA need good follow up on this. Thank you lucky stars kid!
