Tug muscle, Good one.
This entire incident is a study in disfunction, deniability and culpability.
Bravo to each party.
This is a study of overreaction. Pull up a chair and let the games begin.

Marriage is a contract which is overseen by law. Therefore its not a moral issue at all, but a civil one. The law is clear, Equal Protection.
Gay marriage will be legalized on a federal level very soon.
Equal protection. It's pretty simple actually. That is for anyone but a religious ignoramus. Remember those who hold their religion so dear as to cause others harm are the most gullible, least intelligent people on earth regardless of their chosen flavor...
On The Judiciary

I'm mostly with you Botany but Chen is on trial which is quiet different than a mug shot from an arrest.
Since charges have to be somewhat solid to make it to trial, its a bit different than publishing a mug shot based on nothing more than an accusation and or an investigation. Especially in regards to alleged sexual crimes with a minor. As we all know, this could have been a case of a mature 17yr old consenting or it could be something much less benign. But his face and name will forever be entombed with the label of a child molester regardless of the outcome... And that's a travesty and a failure on the part of the Independent

I find the pre-judicial publication of mug shots to be disgusting and an affront to justice. Its illegal to publish these types of photos in the UK and it should be here as well. Trial in the court of public opinion is an affront to the very tenants of our justice system. IMHO The Indy should be sued into bankruptcy for publishing these types of images.
And for the record I do not know this man or have any interest in the charges or the alleged crime. I find the Indy's practice to be disgusting and represents the very worst aspects of modern journalism. The team at the Independent should be ashamed of themselves for stooping to this level. Talk about yellow journalism.

"Hu described her son — a Chinese citizen studying at the time of his arrest at Santa Barbara City College — as a “straightforward, compassionate, and cheerful person” who likes animals and helping others. "
Yeah, that's why he tortured and killed a puppy. Because good people with good hearts and love and compassion towards other living things, torture and kill puppies.
Send this scum to prison and then back to China where he can live out his worthless life in some horrific factory slum.

IV is well known among real estate investors as being one of the very best places on earth to own rental property. Many of those units are owned by extremely wealthy families and funds as they are better investments than almost anything with a stream of highly funded kids in one of the most desired areas in the world with very limited land and even fewer potential builds.
Kids will be kids and the tighter the lease, the harder they'll bite. Solution is more bars and lower the drinking age to 18. Put them in a confined and controlled environment and tax them. Simple. But in our oppressive and puritan society, that's the last thing the politicians or the people will allow...

Yes Jarvis and as it turns, the majority of our kids were injected with these same chemicals both in utero and post... And more and more research is pointing at these pharmaceuticals as the root of many of the affiliations that the anti-vac crowd blames on vaccines. All those moms eating all those pills and rubbing all those chemicals over their bodies actually has a negative impact. Who woulda thunk!
It turns out that unfettered injection of chemicals is bad for you! We still havent learned much even though the cancer rates are through the roof, we;'re still dripping our food and our homes in chemicals and the world is starting to fall apart as a result. Bee's, birds, fish, insects, they're all dying off en mass due to the products produced by Monsanto, DOW and thousands of other companies.

An absurdly overblown situation.
The problem is both in cultural acceptance of thug life and the realities of drugs and the people who trade them. This is a classic case of 4 idiots fighting themselves and the police overreacting. Yes, if drugs were legal this would not have happened but the idiots would still find a way to fight. It'd probably be over a girl or a car or a video game. Remember that these kids are trained to think that being a thug is cool. This stems from their parents, the entire Hip Hop Rap culture and America at large. Just another case of thugs doing what thugs do... and now they get to do it from the comforts of a prison cell. I am sure they'll fell special once the lights go out in their cell...
