Did the girlfriend knowingly pose in the photograph?
Laurie McCabe July 22, 2014 at 12:23 pm
The law stipulates that it does NOT MATTER how the photograph is obtained once it is being used toRead More cause emotional distress. In other words, a piece-of-shit man is a piece-of-shit man.

Motorists receiving email noting unpaid tolls, but it's a hoax. Provided.

Anybody can put those names in the from field. Check the headers of the email. That's a better wayRead More to verify. Bottom line, people should never respond to emails claiming non-payment. Always call to verify for sure.

How much did this attacker weigh? With so many people out and about, the weight is very importantRead More feature. If he was very heavy, he would stand out. If he was skinny he wouldn't.

I have talked to some locals and some think it is the newly arrived Homeless man that hangs aroundRead More the shopping center peeking into cars. He also hangs around 7 11 in the early mornings on west broad. It could also be the teen ager from McLean that is missing. I hope they catch this man and lock him away for a long time.

Someone asked me this week to help them renew their passport. When they saw how long it would take,Read More they said they could go to a local place and get it the same day for $300. I asked the name, and she said "something Spanish." I told her it was probably a fraud and criminal. I wish I had gotten more info, but it was a place in Alexandria. I should call and ask if she got one!

This is great. We get to shelter, feed, and keep healthy this guy for 12 years before we releaseRead More him. He's getting off easy. Think about how much damage this guy has caused: FAKE social security numbers - for getting government handouts???; identification cards - for VOTING illegally? There's no telling how much these fake documents have impacted us.

Too bad deportation doesn't precede incarceration. a coslly way of dealing with illegally residentRead More culprits guilty of aiding and abetting illegal immigration. Afterthought: Don't quite know what to do about similarly culpable chief executives and members of Congress.

The parents need to be brought in for evaluation and collection of the 35K. Bad kids usuallyRead More indicate bad parents.
John Strother July 2, 2014 at 02:59 pm
maybe the graffiti was really artful. Why not show a picture of what they had done? That way weRead More could see what damage was really done. Some graffiti is very well thought out and not just random scribbles. Plus this is a skate park, isn't it part of their culture to have graffiti ? Makes the park more home like? If their art work was really fine art, they are bored, I have a few walls they could decorate.
