Was one of those arrested a Nigerian Prince who has my 10 million dollars?

Posted in: 11-month-old girl dies of heatstroke after mother leaves her in car See in context

Out drinking until nearly 5am? Were the kids in the car or the bar when she was drinking? Pretty stupid to be drunk when she's responsible for two small children whether in a bar or at home. Wonder if the colleague is a quasi boyfriend.

Posted in: Man drives off with another man clinging to hood See in context

@simon, exactly where in the story did you read that the car was speeding towards the victim? Jumping on to the hood of a moving car is also a movie trick. Just crawling on to the hood of a stationary car is difficult, let alone when one is moving. I'm certain that he climbed on from the side so he had something to grab on to, and if he was on the side he wasn't in any danger.

And why again did the victim feel the need to jump on the hood?

Posted in: Man arrested for second time for secretly filming women in toilets See in context

No reason he shouldn't receive the max sentence, plus his suspended sentence. Obviously didn't learn anything from the court's previous gift.

@hustle, it's just a decoration, like an ice sculpture. Think of all the margaritas going out UNFROZEN.

@hustle, the article clearly says they are not edible. Read Yubaru's explanation.

@nanda, what pressure? Ohtani is not slated to pitch at all this season. In fact, if he has a great season at the plate this year he may never pitch again.

Since she fired her coach because she wouldn't put success over happiness, she must be ecstatic now.

Let me guess, she's going to again say it's the best thing that could have happened.

I'm guessing the boy may have previously been abused himself since he wasn't afraid to call the cops.

Posted in: Trump on rape accuser: 'She's not my type' See in context

Kathleen Willey accused Bill Clinton of sexual assault. He denied the allegation saying he would never pursue a small breasted woman. So what's the difference?

Star Wars has gone from interesting science fiction to ridiculous nonsense. I'll sit this one out.

Posted in: Man indicted for dangerous driving over high-speed crash killing 4 See in context

Regardless whether he knew the exact speed he was going, he's a fool if he couldn't tell he was way above the speed limit. 60 kph is a residential speed limit, and at 2.5 times the speed limit he could have easily hit kids or bikes. He deserves to spend the rest of his life in prison.

Denies the charge but has the officer's gun in his possession, good luck with that at trial.

Posted in: Defendant in Sagamihara murder case acquitted See in context

His glasses at the scene and the victims blood at his apartment...sure sounds like guilty beyond a reasonable doubt to me. Convictions can be based entirely upon circumstantial evidence, without an eye witness. Justice was not served.

One out of every seven Filipinos/Filipanas works outside of the Philippines. I've lived where there was a large contract worker force and they were certainly among the best. Unfortunately many have faced terrible treatment around the world so this should provide a very good opportunity for them.

Posted in: Man given reduced sentence for 2016 murders after mental examination See in context

This seems like such an odd ruling. He's not crazy enough where he can't be held accountable, but just a little crazy so that his sentence can be reduced. I can't even imagine what he will be like when he's released.

He did basically the same thing as the ex J-pop singer. Wonder if he'll get a suspended sentence like she did.
