@Dr.Theo...this is a small charter company in the Philippines, no relation at all to the Lion Air in Indonesia.

Hopefully it’s ‘former’ supervisor at the ward office.

He was convicted by conclusive DNA evidence, rather than an eye witness. So yes, he was convicted by circumstantial evidence.

I support the death penalty, not in every case but definitely for this one. Anyone who rapes and murders a child deserves nothing less.

So he admits that he abused her, just not every day. Somehow that doesn’t make me feel any better.

I wonder how many times a toddler has to ‘fall over’ before an official decides it really abuse.

@John Beara, you’re in luck, type O is a a Universal Donor...most compatible with other blood types.

Posted in: Parents arrested for abusing 2-month-old daughter See in context

The fact that they refuse to say how she injured herself raises a red flag. A 2 month old isn’t crawling around and falling over. They could have at least diverted suspicion by claiming that they accidentally dropped her.

Another idiot that thinks stealing something, or hurting someone, relieves stress.

Didn’t she divorce him and then marry him again? She was free and went back. Too bad she’s not serving her 30 months but hopefully her testimony will help to convict him.

@Samit, Airbus only bought the CSeries from BBD, which it calls the A-220. BBD’s CRJ program was actually bought by Mitsubishi.

@Yrral, only a white person would be fired. They wouldn’t fire a minority out of fear of a lawsuit.

Posted in: Investigators: No sign of engine failure in Bryant copter See in context

Whether it was controlled flight into terrain or losing control when flying into instrument conditions on a VFR was pilot error. Short of getting blasted out of the sky by a missile, there are only 2 acceptable reasons for an aircraft to crash. Either complete loss of power or structural failure. They’ve just ruled out engine failure, and I’ve seen no evidence of structural failure. Many similarities to the JFK Jr. crash.

@Andreea, you are the one making all the assumptions. I’m saying I’d like to know more about his upbringing. I don’t think it’s too much of an assumption that a 17 year old girl doesn’t want to have a baby. And what 17 year old is prepared for that. Being a teenage mother may have worked for you, but I’ll just say I wouldn’t advise it.

I don’t think Wesley is assuming she was a bad mother. Just curious, as am I, what kind of home life they had. At 18 the mother had a baby that she most likely didn’t want and was ill prepared to care for.

@Hakman, actually it would have been 4th down rather than first and goal. And it would have forced the games most difficult decision, go for it or kick the tying field goal. But, as you say, they looked at it from every angle and there wasn’t enough evidence to overturn the call.

@hello, Refundable only if you put up the entire cash amount. If you go through a bail bondsman you have to put up 10 percent. That 10 percent is his fee and not refundable.
