    Identified! Greece - LIVING 4 year old, with Roma couple, Oct'13 - #1

    I've been wracking my brain, and I can't come up with any possibilities that haven't been mentioned. Either Maria was given to them, bought by them, found by them as an orphan or abducted by them. There really aren't any other options, since we know that she wasn't born to them. I do know that...

    Mom's boyfriend & 5 children ages 6, 5, 4, 3, 22 months killed in house fire

    The Daily Mail article had photos of her and her mom there to support her. Which is great. Without anybody to support her right now, I don't think she'd make it. She needs professional supports too. I hope with every ounce of my being that she is seeing a very good mental health professional...

    Henry County child found dead in possible suicide

    We can't understand why my seven year old understands suicide and wants to kill himself. Mental illness can strike anyone, regardless of age.

    Truck tailgate makes other drivers think woman is being kidnapped

    Good, what he did wasn't illegal, either making the decal or putting it on a vehicle. I'd react awfully strongly to being treated like a criminal for something that was perfectly legal and a matter of personal expression. Whatever he has coming next, I look forward to seeing it. I'm sure it'll...

    Donor is behind effort to ease sex-offender rules

    Megan's law. It limits offenders to where they cannot live within a certain number of feet of day care centers, schools, playgrounds, whatever. And we aren't creating reasons to punish people. They created the reason. And they don't receive the punishment unless they do something that shows...

    Donor is behind effort to ease sex-offender rules

    Adding someone to the sex offender registry limits where they can live, where they can work, makes them easier to find for law enforcement, and gives them extra restrictions that can be put in place for the course of the offender's life, instead of just while they serve a parole or probation...

    America's underground market for re-housing adopted children

    Most people realize when adopting a child that it won't be an easy road. But there are also others that come into it expecting, sometimes, subconsciously, to receive some sort of gratitude from the child. They often figure that even if they have issues, they will still behave like children...

    Donor is behind effort to ease sex-offender rules

    Sometimes, if the perp takes a plea, it changes the level and also description of the crime. My father was convicted of CSC against a 9 year old boy, but because he pled guilty to a lesser charge than he was originally charged with, all of his paperwork reads "person 12-15".

    GUILTY UT - Ryker Peterson, 5 mos, shot to death, American Fork, 5 April 2013

    As a mother, they would have had to sedate and restrain me for the hearing or I would kill him myself. Nothing the justice system could do to him would be bad enough to make me feel that justice had been done.

    Donor is behind effort to ease sex-offender rules

    17 and 12 is not jut exploration, unless their son is badly delayed. He should be on the list. I agree about some underage offenders (those that were exploring or just did something like exposing themselves), but not somebody like that.

    Truck tailgate makes other drivers think woman is being kidnapped

    No, if I'm driving down the road, and see what looks like a bound woman in a truck, my first step is going to be making sure that it's not a picture...I hang out with the car mod crowd, and frankly this is no different than what everyone does around here for Halloween and car shows. My first...

    America's underground market for re-housing adopted children

    When you adopt a child, you know little to nothing about them, unless it happens to be an adoption within a family or something similar. You know only what the adopting agency wants you to know. Let me put it this way. If an agency had to write a "listing" for my seven year old, it would go...

    GUILTY PA - Nathalyz Rivera, 3, starved to death, Philadelphia, 9 Sept 2013

    My 3 month old weighs more than that. How the hell do you sit there and starve your child, then listen to them scream for an hour, likely in intense pain, and do nothing until they are already dead? I lose a little more faith in humanity every single day. Someone had to know. This didn't...

    Truck tailgate makes other drivers think woman is being kidnapped

    Or because she's into consenting bondage, or they are playing a prank. It's all open to interpretation. The tailgate itself does not condone or endorse any type of action whatsoever.

    GUILTY IL - Willow Long, 7, Watson, 8 Sept 2013 - #1

    Maybe there are reasons for the parents not being on TV. Say, for example, that LE wants them to take a non-threatening, we aren't mad, we just want her back approach to any potential abductor. If her mom just can't swallow the anger and fear long enough to make the plea the way LE wants her to...

    GUILTY MI - Kelli Stapleton, attempted murder of 14yo daughter, Benzie County, 3 Sept 2013

    How often has she heard it? Hundreds, if not thousands, of times. I've heard it at least once, almost every single day, and I don't believe that my son is as badly impaired as Issy, so we probably only get a taste of what she hears. But, even with a child that is currently only moderately...

    Truck tailgate makes other drivers think woman is being kidnapped

    Any vehicle modification could potentially be distracting enough to cause a wreck. And I don't see it as promoting violence. It's a picture. To me, that's all it is.

    Pa. Lawsuit: Renters fear eviction over 911 calls

    I've been a victim of domestic violence, I've done the classes, taught the classes (literally), and written many a research paper on the subject. In the long run, it comes down to choices. Scared or not, it was still her choice. She chose to endanger herself and her child, by allowing this man...

    GUILTY IL - Willow Long, 7, Watson, 8 Sept 2013 - #1

    I'm trying to catch up, but if no one minds, I have a couple questions. 1. How many people live in her household? Is it just her, mom, and the little brother? Is there a live in bf? Who and where is her father? 2. Does she have any developmental/behavior problems? I ask this because my son...
