@Foofighter - you are making a "choice" to flagrantly avoid engaging in actual conversation about a real problem, "choosing" hyperbole and rhetoric. "Choosing" to deride a group of people and to set up your personal soapbox on the back of a man who was stabbed to death and about whom we know next to nothing at this point.
What should your punishment be for your "choices" here?

"I no longer walk to my office: it isn't safe...."
I can understand how you may think that given your experience. But there's a world of difference between fear and reality.
It makes me sad that you're not able to differentiate between something that happened once and something that never happens, 9/10 times you might be downtown.
I don't agree with a snarky response that says you need therapy. But I do think there's a disconnect between reality and your fear. If you spend your money out of town, I can guarantee you that the same possibility is true, it's just that you haven't experienced it, yet.

A more interesting article might have included the fact that the sheriff's substation is mere yards from this motel?
And the long-standing gossip/rumor that Carp is training ground for newbie SBSO personnel? Well, now THAT is an investigative article waiting to be written. No bodily fluids or black lights necessary.

duo4now - So basically you both decided to hurt someone that day? I'm....not seeing exactly how this is a good thing you did or why you're so proud of it.
I'm glad you didn't get seriously injured in the crash, and I don't think anyone would ever say drinking and driving isn't totally a heinous thing to do, but what you did was exactly the same in a different way, do you not see that?

Often people call in and say stuff about a fire's supposed origin, or the first reports are wrong. I wouldn't go assuming this was a fire started by a camper or dumping coals until the fire department tells us that.
The assumption is a bit irresponsible at this point (of our "stellar" KEYT news and anyone who jumps on the hype-wagon.)

Botany, she may have improved certain aspects of Britain's economy but it was to the detriment and suffering of hundreds of thousands of people who lived in the UK at the time.
She single-handedly forced thousands of people out of their jobs and into poverty and started to systematically dismantle the options available to them at the same time. Labor unions aside, even.
She also really did a number in Scotland and Wales. It's actually and interesting read/research if you're ever up for it, but she was really not great for the UK - unless you were already exceedingly wealthy or needed grants for an already huge corporation in oil or steel.

Loonpt, you're living up to your name.
It adds insult to the injury and loss suffered in Boston (and everywhere else you mentioned in this rant) to support this kind of unhinged theory.
Our gov't and country aren't perfect. Far from it, but this is just waaay off base.

@loonpt - Whoa, whoa, whoa. The solution to a noise burden is to sell your home? No.
There's a huge difference between normal noise from parties and BBQs and repeated, nuisance noise and traffic. This complaint falls into the latter.
If this were a different story - let's say one about someone who couldn't AFFORD to move - then what would the advice be, then?
You're way off base.
On ‘Party Houses’ Still Irking Neighbors

I read this entire article twice and this is all I get when I read it: having a loaded gun while you hike around makes people do things that they wouldn't otherwise do. Hence, situations escalate to unstoppable and tragic consequences. Billy the Dog is a perfect example of this and frankly, I'm not too thrilled with the people who think hunting feral pigs is okay, either.
That said, there's legal and there's ethical and somehow there's a huge gap, here.
