mermaid 3 years, 11 months ago on Gunman in custody after targeting Arizona congresswoman, killing 6

You hit that on the head MK. This guy was totally nutzo, plain and simple. I don't care what his problem was or percieved to be, he didn't have a grasp on the real world.

mermaid 3 years, 11 months ago on UPDATE: Gov. Nixon involved in traffic accident

You didn't understand my point MK. Everyone has accidents from time to time. Sometimes it can't be helped. Other people can affect you, just as this 18yo affected the car in front of him who then hit the governor's car. The way the insurance companies pay, the kid won't pay for the governors injuries, the person behind him who was pushed into him will. If the governor had his seat belt on, it would, maybe, have protected that middle person from paying higher bills. So the seat belt law would have protected her if the governor had followed the law. Understand?

I have worked numerous vehicle accidents on I-70 during my years as a Paramedic. I have only unbuckled one dead person and she died from a heart attack prior to crashing. I made my own choice to wear a seatbelt for my safety. Then there was a law passed. It didn't really effect me since I had made a choice to be safe. So, tell me about texting and driving. Seems we have a lot of people doing that and crashing. Should that be outlawed or just trust that everyone won't do it?

That is fine but if you hit someone else's car and they don't have their seatbelt on, guess who gets to pay their higher medical bills? Wouldn't the law protect you also in this sense?

mermaid 3 years, 11 months ago on Jefferson City woman faces rape charges

Seems she thinks of herself as a teenager and not an adult. For some reason (insanity) she thinks she has to mess around with teen boys. But I find it interesting that they went to her house to visit her. If this was rape why would they continue to go to her house, have sex, drink and do drugs? Because they are teen boys who think it's cool to be with an older woman? Why now, two years later, are they pressing charges? Is it because as they have gotten older they realize that she's a predator and not a plaything for teens?
