Happiness is a good meal, a good cigar and a good woman - or a bad woman; it depends on how much happiness you can handle.

normalfreak2 Uhhhh  you are flat out WRONG.

Incorrect, YOU are flat out wrong.  She was 14.

From the Legal Dictionary: "Child molestation is a crime involving a range of indecent or sexual activities between an adult and a child, usually under the age of 14. In psychiatric terms, these acts are sometimes known as pedophilia. "

So, if true:
Would it be horrible and warrant prosecution? Yes.
Would it be Child Molestation and/or Pedophilia? No.

At first I felt bad for the kid because he was being bullied.

NOW I feel bad for the kid because he's being bullied AND  his parents are apparent douchebags.  Hopefully he can overcome both.

Just to point out: Despite all the allegations thrown at Moore, NONE of the girls were below the age of 14.  So even if it were proven, at worst it would be statutory rape.  NOT 'child molestation' or 'pedophile'.  

Wasn't real crazy about Doug Jones, but it is what it is.

Now, it will be interesting if these charges will be pursued against Moore or if they will fade into the ether because the hit-piece is done.

monkwarrior Actually, there are three (3) answers to that:

  1. There are businesses that have policy that allows you to carry guns if you can do so legally. 
  2. There are businesses that have no rules either way, which allows you to carry if you can do so legally.
  3. There are businesses that have rules against concealed carry. (note: this does not mean that it does not happen. Also note: in my state, the company can have a 'no guns allowed' policy, but they legally cannot keep you from keeping one in your vehicle UNLESS that vehicle in on company property that is fenced, guarded and secure.)

Currently there is a 9mm in my briefcase. It's legal.

daegog Rumor = Word of mouth not supported by the facts.

There IS NO documentation that Moore was ever banned from the mall. Just word of mouth.  So, it's a rumor.

daegog they supported and condoned pedophiles

I find it funny that the libs trot out the term 'pedophile'. 

Just a little edumacation: Pedophilia is defined as sexual interest in prepubescent children aged 13 or younger.  

Now, how old were Moore's accusers at the time?  (Hint: 16-18)

So, EVEN IF HE WERE GUILTY of statutory rape, he would not be considered a pedophile.   (Hint: throwing out inaccurate information does not help your case)

So, prove him guilty of that which he is charged with, and I will call him a sexual predator.  I will not call him something that does not apply.

Gun scenario's aside.  You have one (1) 2,000 lb car carrying 2-3 punks, vs half a dozen 10,000 lb forklifts and plenty of hard-working, pissed-off union brothers.

I know which side I'd lay money on.

daegog So why wouldn't you let your daughter be alone with Roy Moore?

So which part of 'any senator or representative' is confusing to you?  They're all subhuman.
megrendel wrote:
daegog  Now why do you think he was banned from the mall?  More fake news?

So, you're taking rumor as fact now?  The mall in question has no records of any such ban.  Fake?  Well, it's far form being proven news.

daegog Tell me, would you let you 13 year old daughter (if you had/have one) go work alone with him?

No. But that's true of every single Senator and Representative. (and I have two daughters who, at one time, were 13.)

Do I understand that cops are under significantly more threats from people wanting to kill them in response to a false narrative perpetuated by several media and political groups, and as a result tend to be a little jumpier than in the past? Yes.

Did he deserve to be shot? Probably not.

Does 'what you deserve' mean shit in reality? No. 

What is the root cause?  He got drunk. He got stupid. He got dead.   Everything that followed his drunken stupidity is a direct result of his drunk stupidity. 

The jury found him innocent.  But, at the same time, it's probably a good think he is no longer on the force.

skypirate I agree.

While it's a nice video, the fact that it won $250,000 to explain something that everyone who graduates high school should understand is just a sad commentary on our current level of education.

fancylad According to the articles I have seen, Shaver had a scoped air rifle that he was showing some friends and pointing out the window.  Someone reported 'a guy pointing a rifle' to the front desk, and the cops were called.

Many air rifles cannot be easily differentiated from a high-power rifle. 

This guy was found not-guilt by a jury.  So, as I'm sure they had more evidence than normalfreaks commentary, I'm not sure I can call this 'murder by cop'. 

Could just as easily be called 'suicide by stupidity'.

You hear that laughter? Don't worry, we're not laughing NEAR you, we're laughing AT you.

I think Thomas Paine had you in mind when he said, "To argue with a person who has renounced the use of reason is like administering medicine to the dead."
