Posted in: 150 Japanese United Airlines flight attendants may lose jobs See in context

@Hiro, they don’t actually have to move. Half the flight crews I know are commuters, and Tokyo to the west coast is a pretty easy commute. Most will have a shared crash pad that they use for a couple days a month.

@Speed, give them visas to go work in the US, when United will be furloughing Americans...that will never happen. And there’s no shortage of language speakers that are legal to work in the US.

Posted in: Hamilton wins hectic Tuscan GP; demands justice for Breonna Taylor See in context

@risky, I never said she deserved it, I said it was a tragedy. Maybe you need a second grader to read it to you again. I’m not a fan of the no knock warrant, but a judge signed off on it. One of the other houses that was raided yielded 8 guns, I guess they were staunch supporters of the 2nd Amendment.

The shooting of Breonna is a tragedy, but her own actions contributed to this. Never mind the fact that her boyfriend fired the first shot that wounded an officer. Her ex-boyfriend was a drug dealer. And instead of cutting ties with him she allowed him to have drugs sent through the mail to her address. She kept large sums of his drug money at her house and used this money to bail him out as well as another drug dealer. This is what put her house on the radar. Sad that she had a bright future but when you keep bad company bad things can happen.

Nothing less than a life sentence for this repeat offender is appropriate.

@Pam, it didn’t say she was quarreling with the parents, only that that were. Maybe she left because she got tired of their fighting.

From another source, it said the father arrived at the house before phoning the police. If he was still at his house, why didn’t he call for an ambulance rather than the police. Not totally convinced he doesn’t have some involvement.

The father says she fell down and was unresponsive...he didn’t notice the multiple stab wounds?

With the updated story, seems likely this girl was never going to be seen again. And I renew my comment, he should spend the rest of his life in prison.

@Mickelicious, it was a home invasion. The residents were able to escape but both officers responding were hit. Bohannon had a wife and three young children.

Correction to my post, the shooter was not black. However the point remains that Officer Bohannon should be remembered over a career criminal.

Ten days ago a police officer was killed by a black man in St. Louis. His name was Tamarris Bohannon, and he was also black. Say his name, Ms. Osaka.

If he rats on Ghosn and his wife, I’d let him plead guilty to a misdemeanor, sentence to time served, and no fine... and Bob’s yer uncle.

That seems like some pretty twisted logic there, Vanessa. So you’re saying that every kidnapper will commit murder because they have nothing else to lose. People who prey on children do not deserve a second chance. And these types of crimes are the least likely to be rehabilitated.

Posted in: Law revision eyed to keep sex crime victims' names from offenders See in context

@Vanessa, There were many failures in this. The police report in itself didn’t give the guy everything he needed but a place to start. He hired a private investigator that made calls to a city office impersonating her husband to get info. The P.I. was later charged and convicted but given a suspended sentence. In addition I believe a couple of the city office workers were also charged. The husband sued the city office for 10 million yen, awarded one million.

@Vanessa, she “suddenly wanted” to press charges against the guy after he started sending her threatening emails. He was convicted and given a suspended sentence. Then he spent the next year trying to track her down, and sent 1000 emails in the two weeks prior to the murder.

I remember the Zushi case. It was an ex-boyfriend who tracked her down through a private investigator. After killing the girl he killed himself. Her husband sued the city and was awarded the paltry amount of one million yen.

I did say it has nothing to do with the engines. Don’t know why the article even included that. The RR part was my personal sidebar, I’m a PW fan.

The RR engine problem has nothing to do with Boeing and the 787. Never been a big fan of RR power. And it was a RR powered ANA 787 that had both engines shut down after landing.
