This little boy is very clever to have figured out how to crawl inside the machine. He deservesRead More more attentive parents. I hope they are court ordered to parenting classes. For what it's worth, approximately 30 years ago, I saw a toddler swathed in diapers wander out the front door of his home. The door was wide open. He started walking down the street. I parked my car and gently held him in my arms, looking for a family member to appear. No such luck. The toddler was nonverbal and unafraid. So we walked to the police station across the street. The cops on duty immediately recognized him & thought it was funny. The toddler was a known wanderer and the cops assured me he had a loving family. REALLY? They took him back home and did not write an incident report. It disturbed me then and now that the parents and police were so nonchalant. Child neglect is amusing to some people. I am not one of them.

Natick news - Nebraska news -- well at least they both start with the letter N. I said this before IRead More think everyone should not open any article on their local Patch unless they see the name of their community in it. They are trying to trick up with news. We see a headline and think - in my case - Natick - and it is not. NO NAME - NO CLICK! I think if the click rate goes down for Patch, it will hurt them advertising wise and then maybe they will listen to us that we want LOCAL NEWS! Who wants to join me in my NO NAME No CLICK campaign?

strange how we respond just as the terrorists desire us to. the media commemorates each incident asRead More if it were a new profit center to mine for every last click. whole populations now sit in fear of another 'something' about to happen, never again, fully safe like we were in the good old days of the cold war? once these bstrds hit us deep inside our own turf we have not become stronger, but rather 'hardened', emboldened in our delusions of ultimate superiority, no longer safe on our 'island of north america'. each of these events changes us all even imperceptably, forcing us to accept their motives, their ideals, their imam imposed concept of living. we act in unison, determined to show them we are not affected, yet that very demonstration reveals our inner need to respond, to re-affirm our own injury, each of those crowd-felt sympathies we all cling to, even if for the brief moment of our 'crowd'. be strong, and further, be alert, be conspicuous in manner in which you care for each other. shy not away from those who seek your death, but do not embrace them, as they fein no challenge to seek close to your demise.

Typical behavior from government pigs. They steal our tax dollars, then turn around and spend themRead More on the police state they use to oppress us.
Sandy Murphey April 16, 2014 at 11:10 am
The best part about all of this is that because there's always "OPPORTUNITY IN CRISIS",Read More this "problem" created more business for this little hydro shop. I love that the women gardeners showed so much support, and online orders increased so much, that he had to hire more people!! YEAH! The DEA helped, but I do feel sorry for those who are punished for using God's gift of nature, and a weed at that!

ChrisG April 16, 2014 at 11:35 am
@dave, sorry, that came across harshly and was not my intent. What I mean is that since the rovingRead More patrols are over three times (that is 300%) more effective in getting drunks off the road than check points, it is fool-hardy to use less effective anti-drunk measures. That just wastes resources that could be used on more patrols and ad campaigns. Both of which have more impact on the public's perception of drinking and driving. If you are truly in favor of safer streets why would you support check points. What is your agenda?

Justice For All April 16, 2014 at 04:21 am
This guy is demonstrating a psychological pattern of a much deeper paraphilia. From a criminalRead More standpoint, he is a pedophile, pure and simple. To rationalize his deviate behavior as some innocently misguided adult fetish is simply wrong. There is absolutely no comparison. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- He crossed a significant line when he engaged in contacting children. To comfortably contact children like he has, takes a level of courage that is only manifested after someone sinks to a significant depravity. It is actually a type of milestone in a psychosis, if you will. If you think that this is just about dirty socks, then you simply can't grasp the dark truth. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I have no doubt that this is just the tip of the iceberg. I can reasonably suspect that there are many more victims who have yet to be identified, whether they are local kids or members of this guy's own family. I have no doubt that other people who know this 31 year old man are probably not surprised that this happened, although pedophiles tend to be adept at concealing their behavior. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I don't want to second-guess the investigator handling this case, but given the information just from local news sources it seems that a bail enhancement was justified. Perhaps $50-75k bail instead of a mere $5k. A similar case in Northridge set the pervert's bail at $150,000, albeit there was an allegation of false imprisonment: http://articles.latimes.com/2014/feb/26/local/la-me-foot-fetish-arrest-20140227 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- BTW: What's going on with this guys face? Does he look like he has plucked eyebrows and lipstick? Very weird, to say the least.

Reading the various posts here I am struck at the hatred we now have for one another. I believe weRead More are more divided now that at any time in our history with the exception of the Civil War. Obama is a huge success. He has managed to divide our people as no one else has in modern history. A shame that so many have stopped thinking for themselves and instead follow the masses and the political propaganda.
Stu Pidasso April 16, 2014 at 10:49 am
Mike- there is no hate here. actually a pathetic situation when one feels he is "owed"Read More something rather than earning it by working for it. Why not move down to the inner city and live there for 6 months, then get back to us!! it should be a real eye opener for you!! I work 6-7 days a week to enjoy what I have, even though i have little time to do so, I'm not complaining, but it bothers me that i am penalized by the way of extra taxes, fee's , etc., to help those who have no intention of trying to help themselves.. I have TWO children, NOT 5, 6, or 7 simply because I cannot afford it, and would NOT EXPECT the government to take care of them for me!!!

This was out in my neck of the woods. All really great kids, college bound and starting their adultRead More lives. Having lost a child, I can say these families will mourn for as long as they live, and will have to find a "new normal" as EVERYTHING is changed for them now...I wish them strength, there is nothing quite like burying a child. Appreciated are the messages of respect and sympathy. It can be annoying to get news from areas other than your own, however the new Patch is doing things differently, and show no evidence of changing it back.....my best advice would be to ignore stories not in your area, and to write your editor directly, and share your comments with those who can make changes.
