$75,000 to wear the Governor's personally autographed orange cone hat part time - so much for SetonRead More Hall's dignity in our national college community - is this the law school Christie's legal shill received his law degree from during his overnight visitation there during spring break?

EDITORIAL: Friend or foe? Christie knewRead More http://www.dailyrecord.com/article/20140418/NJOPINION01/304180020/EDITORIAL-Friend-foe-Christie-knew “Christie used to trumpet the fact that he was a different kind of politician. What the people of New Jersey have learned is that not only is Christie the same as other wanna-be tough guy politicians, he emulates the worst of them with an enemies list worthy of Richard Nixon.” So we’re to understand that Christie is extremely driven, highly deceitful, hypocrtical, vindictive, and an absolute monster. Got it!

There should be special courts for psych cases just as there are special courts for financial,Read More maritime, juvenile, family and other specific types. This does not mean getting off with any difference in time, but it would mean a more accurate routing and disposition of the individuals. In many cases people do not want to change and would rather be sent to standard jails eventually released and still a danger to society.

Some people do not have even an ember of empathy and need more separation from others and extendedRead More treatment, maybe life long, this may or may not be a case. And, many people just do not have a sense of proportionate response. No matter how trivial the response is irrationally disproportionate.

Nothing Is local on here anymore. Terrible decision to drop local editors for this junk no one caresRead More about. I used to love how we knew everything going on around here from the patch. Now nothing...horrible, horrible decision! !!! I keep hoping someone starts their own patch type of thing. I will be dropping this one.

And we don't get any local news. Oxford Patch did not report the burglary's in Oxford.
BBW April 18, 2014 at 11:40 am
We don't have any local news, just boring politics, rained out stories of "Sandy", PoliceRead More stories without names and details. All the usual "cub reporter" crap. Don't blame the reporters it's just an on line "rag". Not even the ability to find stories, investigate a good story, or "MODERATE" the posts and comments. Example Notice the picture of the perp? Check the ears, eyes and face. Wrestler, MMA, brawler?What's your take on the guy, and why did he leave town? Drugs? What did the witnesses say to the cops… lots of good stuff in town, but poor reporting from the "PATCH". No follow-ups either.

Way to go Judge! She deserves whatever she gets.
Sherry April 18, 2014 at 11:50 am
When someone intentionally brings harm to another person or person, their punishment for the crimeRead More should be the same and there would be less crime. Stab her to death. Save the taxpayers money, and she deserves nothing less where it's case of intentional murder. The judge was frustrated by the limits of the law.

This alleged criminal is accused of major terrorist felonies. He is clearly a flight risk, and hisRead More charges seem to make him a danger to society. High, or no, bail seems appropriate in this case -- especially since his defense attorney(s) have undoubtedly agreed to waive the "speedy trial rule" in order to gather some opportunity to "get him off," and give him time to escape the legal authority of the U. S. judicial system. We are safer/better-off, with this person in jail than with him being released, at least until all of the FACTS are adjudicated. Have we learned nothing about terrorists since WTC, Boston Marathon, etc. -- they lie, kill, and injure innocents. Wake up people.

Rick: Yes, I certainly do remember the case of Richard A. Jewell who died in 2007 at the age of 44.Read More For about 3 days he was regarded as a hero and then overnight he became a "person of interest" by the FBI and he became the suspect in the public's eye and people were ready to lynch him. People regarded him as guilty because he was temporarily living with his mom and they saw the FBI on nationwide TV news searching the apartment. Jewell's life was ruined until he was cleared and exonerated. The real bomber was some right wing fanatic (Eric R. Rudolph). I also remember the radio and TV talk host, Lionel (Michael William Lebron) saying that Jewell was guilty because..."just look at him, he's guilty, he's guilty.." Lionel is a lawyer and he was a prosecutor in FL and he has the audacity to say that someone is guilty because they "look" guilty!!!! Lionel is a certified pompous a$$ jerk. Later, Lionel claimed that he was just joking but he's lying through his teeth because I heard that show and he was not joking in the least. In any case, Richard Jewell was a hero and he did save lives. I wish they would honor his memory in some way since he had to suffer so much for his act of heroism and sacrifice. I apologize for being so off topic but this is an example of how innocent people can become demonized and crucified.

From the article: One person currently stuck in the broken system is Aakash Dalal, a former RutgersRead More student who is being held in Bergen County Jail on $4 million bail for his role in firebombing a synagogue 2 years ago. He's being accused of bombing ONE synagogue not 4 as some commenters are saying. Bombing one synagogue is a horrible crime and act of terrorism but let's at least get our facts right.

Right and going by the fine which was 589 times the cost of the soda, BP, that did so much damage toRead More the Gulf should be fined .... 2Billion X 589 .... right, not in the Corporate States of America. That isn't going to happen. How about we apply that same fine to Wall Street .. hell they damn near wrecked the world's economy and have you seen any fines near 589 times the damage done?

Stealing is stealing and it costs all of us. People who eat the grapes at the grocery store withoutRead More paying for them, are stealing! Every item stolen adds up to added costs to everyone. I would have told this person to pay up first before the fine but the fine is always going to be more than the item. The fine is prevent the person from doing it again. Parking in my city overnight on the street used to be a $5 fine and so many people did. They have since raised the fines. This winter those overnight cars caused a lot of problems. They could not remove the snow with cars on the street. People don't think of the consequences before doing something wrong. Yes, people do things that are wrong but why does this it right? The 89 cents is really cheap for a soda so it makes sense that they don't allow refills for free. I have seen people using soda machines with their own cups. It ends up costing me for being honest. Eat me!

This is ridiculous. Let the guy pay on site. Waste of tax payers money. Theft is wrong, but this forRead More some reason seems different as many restaurants do give free refills.

So far the only complaint I've heard is about how terrible Reagan is. I really hate to tell you butRead More the so called War on Drugs, whether titled that or not, has been going on for a long time before Reagan or Nixon ever came into office. And the jackass party hasn't been behind in enforcing it either. Oh, Eric WithHolder claims he doesn't want to prosecute marijuana offenses - what the hell is the DEA doing here? And maybe you can tell me who has produced the drugs which, along with education about safe practices, has defeated or brought the AIDS problem under control? No, it's not the labor unions of America, Timothy Leary, or little old Madame Curie in her kitchen lab.

To clarify before someone jumps - the major drug control legislation did come about in 1970 as aRead More reaction to the widespread (both real and perceived) use and abuse of recreational drugs. But opiates were banned from importation, sale and manufacture in 1924 (other than that for medical purposes - morphine is an opiate and a pain reliever which if not administered correctly can and does result in dependency.
