KKK breaks into a few homes and then comes to the rescue. An age old strategy.

How do you really know they are up? They could be sleeping underneath those capes. I would thinkRead More you would wear something more scary like a Michael Myers of Leatherface mask, thought would work better I would think.

Sunny do you have any scientific information whatsoever to back up your asinine comment?

Thank you Alison I was thinking the same thing....

Break in My House and I catch you will welcome death!!!

Not invited? You feel threatened? Fire away, and defend your turf. The law will be on your side.

If the homeowner was "lying in wait" then how did he know the teens were about to enter?Read More How did he find out? Had they done this before? Did he know them? Why were they breaking in? What were they up to? Had they done this before? Were they armed? What was in the basement they were so interested in? What was there that he was trying to protect? I don't think I'd be asking many questions if someone uninvited was wandering through my house at odd hours. You could say he should have just held them at bay, but then, how did he know how armed or dangerous they were?

Dear Joan, Read the CYS investigation - it is a matter of public record. CYS investigatesRead More allegations of abuse & neglect. They attempted to act but were blocked by the then Centre County District Attorney. Interesting that the State Attorney General at that time, Mr. Corbett did nothing. More interesting that Mr. Corbett sat on the Penn State Board at that time. Joe Pa as a mandated reporter per the law should have reported to the police NOT his supervisors. I don't get how Penn State people can even consider putting up a statue of Joe Pa. WAY TOO SOON! It makes me sick that innocent children were allowed to be abused.
Debbie Dellatore April 24, 2014 at 05:43 pm
Seriously???? $300,000 for a statue honoring an accomplice to a child rapist -- can PaternoRead More diehards sink any lower? His silence, IMO, makes him just as guilty as Sandusky. Sandusky is a sick son-of-a-bitch who raped these boys because he's a deviant. Paterno covered it up to save his own reputation which is directly connected to the reputation of Penn State's football program. He let dozens of boys be raped by Sandusky because he was a coward.
Tim Lewis April 24, 2014 at 06:51 pm
You people who see Paterno as an accomplice are horrible, shallow, self-righteous, people who haveRead More not a clue in the world.

I don't disagree with you that we're becoming less and less a free country but it's wrong to blameRead More democrats alone. It wasn't dems alone that passed the patriot act. It hasn't been dems alone that have been re-uping it since it was passed the first time. On how bad Hillary will be as a president. Every president is bad in some ways. Reagan raised taxes more than a dozen times. Bush took us to war on two fronts with no way to pay for it. Clinton signed DOMA and DADT. Obama gave away the farm in order to get the Affordable Care Act passed. Papa Bush said that atheists shouldn't be considered Americans. Sure Hillary will be a bad president in some ways.... they are all bad in some way. I can tell you this much though, any president is going to be a worse president when the publicly stated goal of the opposition is to obstruct that president at any and all opportunities. The dems did it to Bush. The republican'ts are doing it to Obama. It's like Palestine and Israel, they'll fight to the death out of spite and habit, neither one of them knowing which one threw the first punch and not caring because winning is the only goal. What America needs are citizens that go into government for the good of the country instead of the good of their party.
Michael Hipp April 24, 2014 at 03:03 pm
Oh, one last point on your last post B. Dub. "Hillary presidency combined with a DemocraticRead More Congress." Ain't gonna happen. Republicant's have gerrymandered the states to absolute death. They have the House for the foreseeable future and they have a good chance at getting the Senate. I can't guarantee you who's going to win in 2016 but I can very well guarantee you that no one party will take executive and legislative branches, both.

with caller ID they should be able to point to the caller. Sorry but an out of state telephoneRead More number should be a tip off.
Eddie April 24, 2014 at 08:52 am
The caller used Skype, via the Internet, and will probably never be found if he took certainRead More precautions unless he's running his mouth about this prank.
Bob West April 24, 2014 at 06:20 pm
@ eddie, I wouldn't mention any specific phone-calling service in case any other arseholes areRead More looking for tips. But for better or worse, those calls are traceable. They have "add-ons" that can fool your friends, but certainly not the NSA. BTW, that phone service was bought by Microsoft a couple of years ago- so much for any illusion of confidentiality. By using it, you "opt in" to give up your privacy, just like with G-mail. Using a computer to make a prank call is a dumb move in itself. Any computer transmits a wealth of information. Non-smart phones are a lot less traceable than anything else. Have you ever seen how many items advertisers and other web sites use to uniquely identify your computer? They can't tell your name but track your unique computer. It's called "computer fingerprinting." As soon as you give your name at a web site they track, they've got you. Check this site sometime to see how unique your computer is-- https://panopticlick.eff.org/ .... I suspect that nobody's putting much effort into tracing this call, because in the big scheme of things, they've got more serious things to deal with. (Unfortunately, unlike our local PDs.) Shame this idiot got so much publicity from his crime. I think the glorifying news "perp walk" should be stopped in virtually all cases.

I was in the car with a friend, once; he was driving. Upon seeing a large SUV with its driverRead More holding a phone to their ear, my friend pointed at the driver and started telling me about how dangerous "distracted drivers" are. Well, while pointing and ranting, my friend had swerved over the line and dangerously close to hitting the large SUV, which was on a steady course in the middle of its lane. The moral of this story is that "distracted drivers" are not always who you'd expect.
Leigh April 23, 2014 at 12:47 pm
Sure Ed, makes sense to ban someone who cares about the world we I've in.
Scott Ritchie April 23, 2014 at 03:29 pm
The only positive effect I have seen is that a review of the phone of a driver who was involved in aRead More fatal accident showed that he was texting at the time and it added to the "he was stupid and careless" evidence. Personally, I would love to see a law against "driving like an idiot" which would cover texting, phone, putting on makeup, reading a book held on your steering wheel, changing clothes, etc... all of which I have seen on 422
The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday upheld Michigan's ban on affirmative action in college admissions.

Jimmy Vierwepps April 24, 2014 at 06:36 pm
I am a whole hearted support of the United States Supreme Court and my 1st amendment right to sayRead More what I said because I support Cheif Justice Robert, But he and his group is dangerouslly Silly. Inner City Education where the teachers promoted a theory if I get one child to college after 13 years I have done my job the educational system in this country was built to make you a servent not a thinker. In a class of 30 that teacher and teachers focus on just one. I believe if he/she focus on 29 being able to read and write do math, understood science, then she did her job and still had work to do one was left behind. But let thanks President Reagan for giving us the Preppy look.

THE TRUTH SHOULD BE FLAG AS inappropriate
Everyday Mathematics is just one of the programs that makes a heck of a lot of $ off of the millions of textbooks sold to schools that teach to the 'Core.' The Common Core isn't just restricting for teachers & students, it's lining people's pockets.
CowDung April 24, 2014 at 12:20 pm
Gary's post is full of falsehoods.
CowDung April 24, 2014 at 12:22 pm
"Agreements or addenda" are not part of the Common Core. Again, if states are doing theirRead More own thing by adding stuff or agreeing to do something different, it isn't Common Core.
Millsey April 24, 2014 at 02:46 pm
If it's on the internet it must be true? A small group of parents make up some "facts" andRead More post it on random news sites. So it must be true? I'm in favor of trusting the actual sources of the program over a blog that someone created because they are afraid of their kids getting a better education.
