So when a women post of a nude so called "revenge porn" pic of a man, it will be dismissedRead More as a mistake of clicking the wrong button and nothing happens....

Did the girlfriend knowingly pose in the photograph?
Laurie McCabe July 22, 2014 at 12:23 pm
The law stipulates that it does NOT MATTER how the photograph is obtained once it is being used toRead More cause emotional distress. In other words, a piece-of-shit man is a piece-of-shit man.

I was a vendor in NJ. I would have to go into Target to service equipment. The DM had their officeRead More in the Ocean, NJ store. The DM & management treat people like scum. I will never shop at Target for as long as I live..

Obviously, Target's mentality is not what you steal, to be reported and prosecuted with clearRead More evidence, but who it is that is doing the stealing. They would rather kiss as@ with the sheriff's department and unjustly fire a great employee, then do the right thing and prosecute this thief! They have made monumental mistakes over the past year. First, the compromise on millions of charge cards, then the stupidity of saying they don't want conceal carry in their stores (within days there were two separate robberies in Target parking lots) and now a excellent employee who should be commended for doing his job, has gotten fired! Target makes me sick! They also don't like bell ringers at Christmas and are anti-veteran. In my opinion, there is not one good reason to shop at this disgusting chain of stores. I hope another store that values decency and honesty, hires this security guard.

This just proves that people are actually jealous of Justin Harris and that is why he is beingRead More attacked in the media. It is better jealously. The people of Georgia support you Justin Harris! Do not give up in the face of these lies!

Anybody can put those names in the from field. Check the headers of the email. That's a better wayRead More to verify. Bottom line, people should never respond to emails claiming non-payment. Always call to verify for sure.

How much did this attacker weigh? With so many people out and about, the weight is very importantRead More feature. If he was very heavy, he would stand out. If he was skinny he wouldn't.
John Strother July 8, 2014 at 07:45 pm
I have talked to some locals and some think it is the newly arrived Homeless man that hangs aroundRead More the shopping center peeking into cars. He also hangs around 7 11 in the early mornings on west broad. It could also be the teen ager from McLean that is missing. I hope they catch this man and lock him away for a long time.
Laurie July 2, 2014 at 08:15 am
Someone asked me this week to help them renew their passport. When they saw how long it would take,Read More they said they could go to a local place and get it the same day for $300. I asked the name, and she said "something Spanish." I told her it was probably a fraud and criminal. I wish I had gotten more info, but it was a place in Alexandria. I should call and ask if she got one!
Marie July 2, 2014 at 08:49 am
This is great. We get to shelter, feed, and keep healthy this guy for 12 years before we releaseRead More him. He's getting off easy. Think about how much damage this guy has caused: FAKE social security numbers - for getting government handouts???; identification cards - for VOTING illegally? There's no telling how much these fake documents have impacted us.

Too bad deportation doesn't precede incarceration. a coslly way of dealing with illegally residentRead More culprits guilty of aiding and abetting illegal immigration. Afterthought: Don't quite know what to do about similarly culpable chief executives and members of Congress.

Why isn't society executing these predators???? Answer: Religion puts up road blocks due to someRead More god's insistence. These made up invisible god's protect and enable these predators to flourish and prosper. Religions are societies worst enemy.

With Obama gathering our phone info and listening to our conversations, why can't the governmentRead More find these people? Also - if people are here LEGALLY, they wouldn't have to worry about deportation threats.

The IRS is an abusive, criminal beast; it needs to be abolished, period. Replace it with a flat tax.

It's called rear view mirrors and windows. I don't buy the story. I think criminal charges should beRead More in order.
Sandra Bishop June 20, 2014 at 11:31 am
I could see putting the child in the car, while it's running, for a/c, while unloading packages inRead More the trunk...and then returning the cart to the cart parking area. That would take a few minutes, not negligent or criminal. That said, was the child in a car seat? Shouldn't be able to reach the power window switch while in a car seat. Also should lock the power windows from the driver's panel, so kids in back can't open them.

At Great Falls, don't you check in if you're going to Kayak? Or is that just for rock climbers? IRead More would think he would have stopped by to inform someone there that he was okay but lost his equipment.
El June 16, 2014 at 11:36 am
He should be charged the full cost of the futile search. What a waste of time and funds!
