Some of the "rescue" groups operating now in Phoenix area are little better than some of these abusers themselves. My experience as a foster for at least two of them was that it was hard to get ahold of someone if I needed help or questions answered, they did not pay for the vet expenses of the animals in spite of stating in the foster agreement they would, not all the animals they had me fostering had been properly immunized and vetted, and one "foster coordinator" was particularly difficult and downright harassing in terms of her dealings with fosters. If legislation is passed mandating people turn animals over to rescues, there needs to be some oversight to the "rescues" the animals are handed over to.2 months ago
CoffeeisTasty: First you say "Ben Smith and his band of loonies" then you say "those people". Who? What people? Do you know even know who you are accusing? It doesn't sound like it. You appear to be the one making "stuff" up. The video appears to be of a car in a driveway, but even assuming you are correct that the car was in the street, then by your (il)logic, someone can take your briefcase off your car because your car is in the street. Someone can take your wallet off your car because your car is in the street. It IS trespass to enter someone else's property (that includes a car) especially with the intent to steal. You ARE victim blaming and people that do that, whether it's blaming the pet owner because some sick creep comes into her neighborhood to steal and torture animals or a rape victim for wearing a skirt, is idiotic.4 months ago
"Later, Horn clarified that there was no bleeding in the brain, which typically happens when the victim is alive." - when the victim is NOT alive???4 months ago
There are people that have spent a career as consumer advocates, NOT as someone in charge of a company trying to soak the consumer. Appointment of Quinn is yet another fox-guarding-the-henhouse incompetent appointment on the part of Brewer who has really got to be one of the worst governors not just of Arizona but in the entire U.S.4 months ago
Maybe her "actual problem" is poor parenting, perhaps born to parents that didn't want a child, couldn't take care of a child, weren't involved in parenting her. With the situation exacerbated by those that want to limit access to birth control and birth control education and promote people having children they are not prepared to take care of.5 months ago
A big THANK YOU to all involved, including but not limited to parents, law enforcement, and school, that took this girl's statements seriously and acted to intercede.5 months ago
If that couple has $30 million to fritter away on a losing horse, then they sure do need their taxes raised, and big time.5 months ago
CoffeeIsTasty: Do you have any evidence or facts to support your accusations against crime victim Ben Smith? if not, please don't make those accusations. Scott Graham is the person that was caught -- on video -- in the act of committing a crime. As for the video of Biscuit being snatched by Graham, that cat was on his owner's property. Do you seriously mean to suggest that it was somehow the owners' fault that Graham trespassed onto their property to steal their cat, torture and kill it? Quit making excuses for a criminal; someday you might very well be a crime victim yourself.5 months ago
Leon puts too much "belief" in The Scarlet Letter. I personally object to my tax dollars being spent forcing some people's religious beliefs down other people's throats. 6 months ago
Really the only bright light in this article is Bob Williams' comment about how Hostess execs are just trying to force down wages of the company's workforce. At the same time that the Hostess execs gave themselves enormous raises. http://www.snopes.com/politics/business/hostess.asp - It sure is a "sign of the times" - it's a sign that the wealthy of this country could not care less about the workforce and will use and abuse them however they can get away with. Hostess execs, you are a despicable bunch.
