If a convicted criminal has no remorse or self pity for crimes committed, and is verballyRead More disrespectful to Judge & Court. He deserves whatever sentencing the Judge deems necessary and whatever comments are made by Judge are not without merit or warrant!!! "Your MOUTH can get you KILLED!!!!!
james smith April 17, 2014 at 08:10 pm
How do you expect us to answer the question when the author of this article did not tell the wholeRead More story? What was the judge responding to when he said that to her? Was she acting up in the courtroom, did she speak out of line in court, or was he referring to the crime that she committed? This "journalist" needs to go to journalism school.

Please people, get a grip, just because she ihas obvious issues doesn't allow the judge to sink toRead More her level
CEOs at Michigan's publicly traded companies earned an average of $7 million annually, 171 times the salary paid to average workers and 455 times more than full-time minimum wage workers, an analysis of S&P 500 companies shows. (Patch file photo)

When are people going to figure out that what a person earns is based on the value derived of theirRead More services. Hence a CEO which drives up profitability, guided by firm metrics brings much more value than a minimum wage worker who is only performing a service or unskilled function. This is no different than how entertainers and athletes are paid based on the value they bring, i.e. revenue they create within their organization.

Doesn't a life in prison sentence inherently mean that she is going to die in prison? He didn't sayRead More he hopes she gets killed. This classy broad was laughing as the family of the deceased described the impact the murder had. He might have lost his cool, but I have no problem with what the judge said, and if she has no empathy at all then I too hope she dies in prison... preferably after serving out a long and lonely sentence.

This is my favorite part of the whole story "The Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center isRead More fortunate to have a highly trained Federal police force to ensure the safety of our patients, visitors and employees." Apparently refilling a cup is extremely unsafe and therefore everyone needs to be protected from that violent criminal. Give me a break! I'm sure the hospital is ripping people off left and right. Give free refills and get over it.

"Highly Trained" Really!
Kniqui Hackborn April 17, 2014 at 08:22 pm
If refills are not free, then do not make people pour their own drinks. I have never been in a placeRead More where you pour your own drinks and pay for the privilege each time. I might not have noticed the signs either because when I am hungry and tired, I don't expect to have to read directions at a self serve drink fountain.
In an interview with The Detroit News, the Rev. Jesse Jackson condemned the vicious April 2 mob attack on Steven Utash as "wrong." (Photo: Oli Scarff/Getty Images)

The lady who stepped in to help Mr. Utash acted with great courage (Rev. Jackson got that right!).Read More Good for those who donated to help with his medical bills, too. There are far more good people in Detroit than bad, but the thugs need to be restrained for the good people to survive, let alone feel safe enough to thrive.

Ron, maybe I was too quick to judge Jesse Jackson for his past several years of comments dividingRead More people. Or maybe he got an unfavorable headline from journalists who parsed his remarks. Perhaps he really has turned over a new leaf, Ron. What have you done lately to help rebuild America’s urban areas and unite people besides complain?

Julie Lattimore April 17, 2014 at 07:47 pm
Bystander, You are a great person for coming on this forum to make some of us understand how youRead More feel, you did achieve that. Obama nor Bush has nothing to do with this mess we're in, cleaning up this mess will take cleaning up from the inside out, starts with people like you and me...

A horse and carriage ride in a park, fine. But not on busy, crowded city streets. It's cruel to theRead More horse and dangerous to everyone else. I'm with the NYC mayor on this one.

There is always a reason for a price-increase - I can't remember ever reading about a reason for aRead More price-decrease. It's possible no one else has noticed this. Isn't capitalism wonderful?

So like, I'd use it when the Arab kids are praying in the gym during Ramadan because we knowRead More Christian kids have no in- school prayer time/Bible study allowed since church and state are to remain separate. How sad to live your life being "offended".
