Re: “Hot Springs police issue statement on death of judge's son

If it were a common everyday person, they would be blasted across the media, and scurried off to jail while everyone cheered, "That is what they get for killing a child." If the accused person in this case has other children, DHS would take them out of the home immediately also. The media would be prancing around for all to see with this newsworthy tragedy.
My question from a mother of three grown children, is how does anyone with a sound mind that is not under the influence of a mind altering drug leave their child in a hot burning car? I cannot see any need for leniency in this case. What in the world is wrong with our system? This is a man that sits as a judge that in my opinion should be held more accountable than most.
A prime example of how common people are treated can be seen with the Stanley case that happened in Garland co. a few months ago. The news popped this case quickly. Now, has the rest of their story been told? Wow. . . what a large difference. Hum. If it looks like a duck walks like a duck it may be a duck. Quack. . .

Re: “‘So, open the grave'

I hope justice is served one day. It sounds like this pregnancy was going to hit someone's bank account because of his martial status. Men and women behind the badge often seek this profession because of the power they need to feel. That feeling emotion is often left out of their psychological makeup. The police car driving by and asking what two very young boys were doing looking at a grave in a cemetery is a haunting reminder of how odd this cold case is. I like many other ladies have been taunted by a single deputy sheriff that stopped me in plain clothes right after I had spent an endless night working at the factory. When I snapped back and ask him bluntly what I had done he replied, "Looking for someone that robbed a gas station." Ha, ha. I looked the old robbery up. I did not fit the description. This was on a road without traffic. It is all about power over women.
This was covered up from the beginning to protect those in power.

Re: “Creationism in the classroom in North Little Rock

To stereotype every creationist is odd. That is not a sign of a well rounded person. We have minds that think too, and we believe in science. We also believe in psychology that wards against stereotyping, and that states that religion has a positive and valid place among individuals, communities and society. Oh and the last time I checked a fact can be recreated. A theory is not a fact. I believe both stories about how all of this began are only beliefs because neither have been recreated. So teach them both as beliefs. Lots of stereotyping here against creationist as being misinformed and without knowledge of astronomy or biology. This shows an absolute bias. Sociology teaches against that also. To be so all about education. . .
