Posted in: Man arrested for throwing bicycle from 12th floor of building, injuring woman below See in context

I'd say it's fairly reasonable to expect that tossing a bicycle from the 12th floor of a building might result in seriously injuring or killing someone just as getting behind the wheel of a vehicle drunk would and thus there is the charge of vehicular homicide.

I hope he gets the maximum sentence possible. What an irresponsible moron.

When gamers go bad... All that virtual killing has gotta take a toll.

Yeah, sure, there you go, it's video games causing all these shootings!

Not sure who's getting virtually killed in Madden NFL 19 by the way.

You're own fault America. I have no pity for you anymore with your STUPID gun laws...

I think you mean lack of gun laws.

There's that combined with the sick gun culture promoted by the NRA and the total perversion of the true intention of the Second Amendment.

"According The Washington Post Fact Checker, as of Friday, April 13th, Trump had made 2,436 false or misleading claims in 406 days — a rate of exactly six whoppers a day."

I for one stand behind him, he was a different choice amongst the liars

Sure was, the single most corrupt, dishonest and immoral Commander-in-chief in the history of the United States with no close second.

No it’s directly from the official transcript from ABC news. I bolded the portion that makes my point.

Exactly. You took words out of context in an attempt to change the meaning to something that you like better.

Hey, thats what Comey said, read the full transcript. Of course they would never air that part on television.

Way to try and spin his comments. He was clearly not saying Mueller should be fired as you're trying to insinuate with your ridiculous bold text.

He was only saying that Mueller knows exactly where this Trump thing is going to end, as does everyone else who isn't living in denial. What he is saying is that any attorney or investigator who can't see this should be fired.

comey also said hi to Mueller:

According to James Comey, if you’re investigating for a year and you don’t know what’s going on, “you should be fired.”

I think you were watching the imaginary interview in your head.

The actual comments James Comey made were:

"I'm not going to talk about my contact with the special counsel."

-and-

"...I also want to make sure that I-- don't-- I don't do anything that might get in the way of their ability to be effective."

"Witch hunt"?? The Cohen raid was approved by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, all Republican and basically all hand-picked by Trump himself.

Conspiracy theorists, by all means, keep standing on the deck of The Titanic and shouting that there was no iceberg.

This is not going to end the way you want it to.

Posted in: Flynn pleads guilty to lying about contacts with Russia See in context

They will no doubt Squeeze and threaten him, but once again, libs are getting waaaaaaay ahead of themselves.

The fact that he is ONLY being charged with the one count of lying to the FBI and not for the serious additional crimes outlined in his statement of offense, coupled with Flynn's open admission that he is fully cooperating with Robert Mueller's investigation is fairly clear evidence that we are long past the "squeezing" phase.

But please, don't let these facts get in the way of your delusions.

Posted in: Flynn pleads guilty to lying about contacts with Russia See in context

“Flynn would not be permitted to enter a plea bargain unless he had substantial credible evidence of criminal activity involving high-level members of the Trump campaign, including potentially the president himself,” Notre Dame Law School professor Jimmy Gurulé said. “Clearly this is not good news for President Trump.”

Also, Flynn’s admissions that he acted on behalf of the Trump transition team to interfere with U.S. foreign policy raises the potential of charges under the Logan Act, a never-used 1799 statute than bans citizens from interfering in foreign relations, as well as potential other criminal statutes.

The bad news for Donald J. Trump and company is that Michael Flynn is not the "big fish" Robert Mueller is targeting. He is a "medium fish" at best.

As pointed out in this very well-written article at Deadspin http://bit.ly/1S8R6aC, Ichiro needed 1500 fewer plate appearances than Pete Rose to get to 4256), the most ever hits in a single season (262 in 2004), ten consecutive 200+ hit seasons (Pete Rose had ten spread over his full career). It goes on and on. Pete Rose is a sour grapes loudmouth. Ichiro is going to be remembered as the true hit king.

Give the guy a medal. There are too many noisy cats being fed by people that dont want them in their own homes.

Yeah, sure, that's a great idea. This nutjob poisoned and strangled these animals out of his "love" for them and we should honor him for it. Mind you, some of the cats he killed were people's pets, not strays.

Humans are at the root of the problem for irresponsibly adopting pets without spaying/neutering them and indiscriminately abandoning them when they decide they're too much trouble. But hey, let's just blame the animals. Your way's a lot easier.

Not hating, but being real.

Yeah, real dumb.

How does he have any control over a torn elbow ligament and how does his remarkable performance up until now in ANY way constitute a "bust"?

Posted in: Tanaka shuts out Mets to improve to 6-0 See in context

Plenty of people have had bad things to say about him, including when he forced a much more well-suited SS (Rodriguez) to move to 3rd instead of being the "heart of the team" captain and doing what's best for the team by going himself.

When the Yankees picked up A-Rod in 2004, Jeter had already been the incumbent shortstop for 8 years (4 World Series rings at that point) and there was never any intention of moving Jeter. Jeter's weakness was on ground to his left. A-Rod's increased range allowed Jeter to give up ground to his right to Rodriguez and cheat to the left. It improved the infield defensively.

A-Rod must have liked it at third base since we all know he signed the 10 year contract extension in 2007 that the Yankees ended up regretting.

Posted in: Tanaka shuts out Mets to improve to 6-0 See in context

Tanaka has been the Yankee's saviour thus far this season. What an amazing performance tonight and so far this season.

I really dislike how the media always brings up Tanaka's incredible unbeaten streak last regular season WITHOUT mentioning the fact that he blew it in Game 6 of the Japan Series.

Total BS! This clip from the NY Daily News' report on today's game is typical:

"Tanaka (6-0), who threw a season-high 114 pitches and is unbeaten in his last 42 regular-season starts in his native Japan and the majors. He hasn’t lost a regular-season game since Aug. 19, 2012, although he dropped a game in last year’s Japan Series."

I haven't heard one report where they didn't mention it.

Typical Yankee-hater BS and as for Jeter not being a team player because he announced his retirement before the season began.... Puh-leeze. He's the heart of the team, the captain and you would be hard-pressed to find anyone actually playing the game who had a bad thing to say about the guy.

Posted in: Tanaka says Yankees wanted him most See in context

The bullpen was never a problem and with Mariano Rivera's retirement, David Robertson should be ready to take the closer reins. "No hitting"?? McCann? Beltran?? Ellsbury??? OK, whatever you say. Now I will admit they have some infield issues with the aging Jeter and in need of an A-Roid replacement at third but there is no doubt the Yankees are championship contenders. Kershaw choked in the playoffs last year when it counted the most. Good luck there.

"Just weak people! It is a Japahetic society!"

I love the Japan-bashing in these comments on almost every story, usually from the same readers.

This incident, with it's taunters urging him to go through with the act, was hardly a Japanese innovation. In 2008 an American teen named Abraham Biggs killed himself on Justin.tv to the same sort of chorus of depraved cheerleaders. Google Abraham Biggs for all the details.

Sorry, to burst your Japan-hating bubble, Disillusioned.

The "son" you mention's father was the victim killed in the building when it was struck by the plane. His father was a hero. What a tragedy, and this kook daughter is indeed as mentally ill as her father was and should be institutionalized so that she doesn't end up hurting innocent people either.
