Jeremy Moody's mugshot from his arrest for murdering a couple in South Carolina.

I understand why sex offenders have to register (even though sometimes they do not and no otherRead More criminals have to), it gives the public a false sense of security to know where they live. Some people may even agree with these murders, saying the couple got what they deserved. But, did they? We know that pedophiles CANNOT be rehabilitated. But, is it right for people to kill a pedophile and their spouse? Vigilante justice has no place in our modern "civilized" society. Does it?

From Yahoo Nov 24th 2013; Amrit Marajh, 28, was charged with harassment as a hate crime after heRead More allegedly punched the 24-year-old Orthodox Jewish man Friday morning. And earlier in May, Elex Murphy, now 20, was sentenced to life in prison plus 25 years in St. Louis for killing a Vietnamese immigrant as part the game in 2011. Two weeks ago, a 78-year-old Jewish woman in Brooklyn was punched in the face by teens while walking down her street, prompting an investigation by the NYPD Hate Crimes Taskforce and leading a New York lawmaker to call for harsher penalties for so-called knockout game players. In September, Ralph Santiago, 46, of Hoboken, N.J., died from injuries resulting from a suspected knockout attack that sent him careering backward into a fence, where his head got lodged. Three teens -- two 13-year-olds and a 14-year-old -- have been charged with murder.

All six need to be prosecuted as adults and spend the maximum time in prison for their crimes. NoRead More damned plea bargains, no time off, it is time to stop this kind of crap and the only way to do it is treat the criminals like they are criminals, not someone who deserve special privileges.

Good for you guys. If people could conduct themselves appropriately they wouldn't have to do allRead More this but they can't.

This saddens me as far as having to have a parent if you are 16-17 yrs olds as I remember my dateRead More taking me to the fair and it was always a great time.. But alas times have changed, even for all our responsible teens which I am so proud of. The one thing I cannot understand is the camoflage?? So many children love to wear those colors and designs..Kinda like a sign of the south.. Am I unaware of something here? I know Safety is top priority, and again it's sad that these precautions have to be placed.

I was at the fair today and saw several males wearing camouflage pants and hats. Does it matter whatRead More color camo or race is wearing it as to weather they are allowed in? The guys were not white, if that's what some may associate with camo. They weren't causing any problems and I have no knowledge of any gang type behavior but how serious am I to take the city police if this is the example being set. Just a curious taxpaying citizen
