    With all the goofy stuff this Hogg guy is saying, I'm to beginning wonder if he's an NRA shill-brilliant strategy if true!

    UK UK - Jack the Ripper, London 1888, East End, in and around Whitechapel District UNSOLVED

    Next Tuesday, April 3, will be 130th anniversary of the attack on Emma Smith in a London street. She died the next day, claiming that she was assaulted by a small gang of males.

    Gun Control Debate #6

    An AR-15 is just a medium power gun, that's why they are primarily only used to hunt vermin like foxes and racoons. A higher power gun like a 30-06 hunting rifle would be much better for larger game. The "assault rifle" hyperbole is pure propaganda. If you don't believe me, look up the...

    OK - Duncan Mom, daughter charged with incest after getting married in Oklahoma

    It is weird to me but, when it's consenting adults, it truly is no one elses business as two states have recognized.

    WA WA - Amina Agisheff, 36, Seattle, 7 July 1982

    I don't see the 1988 reality TV presentation MANHUNT: LIVE! about the Green River Killer, hosted by Patrick Duffy, mentioned in the Wiki article. Very creepy-did anyone else here see it?

    IL IL - Barbara, 15, & Patricia Grimes, 13, Chicago, 27 Dec 1956

    In the Wiki article, it states that an official revealed that there was milk found in Barbara's stomach and that it was not believed that she drank it at home and it probably wasn't even sold at the theater. There are many things in this case that don't make much sense.

    UK UK - Jack the Ripper, London 1888, East End, in and around Whitechapel District UNSOLVED

    they kind of won out in the end. I haven't been there but I remember when it opened and there were protesters claiming they were glorifying violence against women. Many in the Ripperology world actually feel close to these women in a loving way so the protesters were wrong. The victims are...
