Tax free? You're crazy. The employer lists on the W2 an estimated amount that the employee made in tips during the year, and the employee pays social security and medicare for that amount when they file their taxes. Plus, if you're no-skill, you won't make very much money as a waiter/waitress.

Actually, being placed on those lists is NOT part of the sentence. It is completely unrelated to sentencing. High school kids making out in a parking lot after football game, boy gets charged with child molesting, found guilty, placed on sex offender registry, even if only given probation or community service as sentence. Technically, he's guilty because the girl is under 17, so the jury had no grounds to find him innocent. Yes, this happens.

Where do you see babies from multiple men mentioned? Plus, IF, this child was under the gradmother's custody, as you suggest, then the mom wasn't the one going out and partying, was she?

I'm not totally disagreeing with you about the risk involved, but "facing your accuser" would be in the case of a crime with a victim who is involved in pressing charges. If you call the cops anonymously and tell them about a meth lab on your block, "YOU" are not the accuser; you've simply passed on a tip. That's why crimestoppers works.

Except that the whole point of the 2nd Amendment was so that we could form militias to protect ourselves from a tyrannical government...

Wait, I thought this incident involved the thugs shooting each other? How would CC have affected the outcome of this? BOTH parties had guns. Isn't that what you propose with CC? If having a gun is supposed to keep thugs from shooting at you (for fear of you having a gun and shooting back), then why did this incident even happen? Shouldn't they have BOTH been scared?

Whoa there... You're a huge pundit about how America's downfall is BECAUSE we're trying to be more like socialist Canada. Now their socitey is better than ours? You can't have it both ways.
