That's the problem with anonymity on the Internet. It gives the scumbags of the world a voice.

There is no anonymity when the police can go to Twitter and Comcast for something like this. UnlessRead More this kid was making threats, he should be able to say whatever he wants. He wasn't making child porn or meth, just making fun of a politician... And who hasn't, really?!

Unfortunately Susan, your heart and mind are hardened. You mentioned that athiests have no problemRead More with the cross, really? How many times has athiests sued to have crosses removed, "IN GOD WE TRUST" to be removed? The list goes on. Maybe the DMV should just go back to alpha numeric plates with no personal messages. Do people who do this think this makes them standout or recognized? Nobody cares.

They probably do not allow: S8TN. CTHOLIC, CHRISTN, DVLLVR....So I am unsure why are even wastingRead More our time on caring. Happy Easter!

It isn't news. That's rapidly becoming the problem with this site. Nothing local. Spam everywhere.Read More Shitty blogs, hookers for sale, and events that are 1000miles away. Time for a sitewide emena.

I think we need more punishments that include restitution by public embarrassment. Holding a sign onRead More a busy corner seems to get the publics attention.

folks the sky is not falling. I have a few credit cards. Once or twice a year either I notice a badRead More charge on my account, or there's one of these hacks, and my card needs to be cancelled. No money out of my pocket, and no real hassle, as I can use a different card until I get the replacement. No way am I going to carry around $100 all the time so I can buy gas. I do think that the credit card companies are going to get tired of the cost on *their* end from this fraud, and tighten up security. But I'm not going to change my life because of it. Just keep an eye on your account (I use Quicken so I see the charges the day after I make them).
Jonathan Kaplan April 20, 2014 at 08:45 am
Card using enthusaists kind of deserve to have this happen to them. By using your cards everywhereRead More you go, do you realize you are taking a large chunk of the businesses profit and choosing to give it to banks and credit card processors rather than the business itself? You, by using your cards, also force businesses to raise prices. Stop using your cards and you won't have to worry about security breaches AND you help businesses AND you help yourself by allowing businesses to lower prices.
Don April 20, 2014 at 10:09 am
For all the years I've had debit cards, never used them. If you're somewhere where credit cards, aRead More check or cash in your pocket can't be used, you shouldn't be there. Besides, most of you forget about all those last minute withdrawals and Irresponsibility takes over, yet you're still surprised- "what happened my bank account?"- the drunken stupor in the bar, or knee jerk "i gotta have it". Most can't afford those approaches, and the service fees know that

I love the people who have nothing to add to the conversation so they throw either Obama or gunRead More control in. Either subject are worth debating at another time. But this conversation has nothing to do with either.

This is not comedy central....either report news or don't. Making fun of police roundup stories isRead More juvenile. We should be glad they are out there protecting us. Grow up PATCH writers.
Jacob Matthews April 20, 2014 at 10:14 am
Patch writers hide behind a keyboard spewing venom for anyone who can read or be read to. They areRead More cowards. Their "stories" are just that. Not a word of truth in any of them. This website is funded by politicians, more often than not written by them as well hiding behind an editors tag. It's propaganda Flo....and you are correct.....it is childish as well as unprofessional.

William d Brown Unlike the Bush Library. They actually will need to buy Books. Problem is if theRead More Liberals did read them they couldn't understand them !
Dave April 20, 2014 at 09:36 am
I understand the new proposed library will contain more than 100,000 volumes. But the number ofRead More volumes will be divided among only three titles that cater solely to the President's voter base: "The Little Engine That Could" for the low-information voter; "The Audacity of Hope" for the egomaniacs who share the disturbing level of self-absorption as the President; and, of course, "Rules for Radicals" by Saul Alinsky, the "bible" for left-wing radicals who use deceit, insult, and obfuscation to steer their agenda. In the video section, there's only one selection: "Sex, Lies, and Videotape", edited to the point where the title has been changed to simply "Lies". Bonus materials include Jay Carney Press Conferences, highlights from several "State of the Union Speeches", and a compilation of Obama campaign speeches dating back to 1997. Missing from the added features are copies of the President's college transcripts, his records from his time in the Illinois Senate, and the ever elusive "birth certificate". By the way, for those misinformed folks who credit the President with "improving the economy", you can twist, distort, switch, manipulate, and selectively use certain statistics to make your point...but the fact is that while there MAY be more jobs, they are GOVERNMENT jobs...no substantial growth in the private sector...more PART TIME jobs, thanks to employers cutting hours for Obamacare, and more people working MORE jobs, to make ends meet. In the meantime, the national debt has grown, manufacturing is stagnant, or down in some industries, and the ONLY reason the stock market is up over 16,000 is because the Fed is artificially supporting it by pumping BILLIONS into the market each MONTH. Take away the Fed money, you're looking at a market conservatively hovering around 10,000. So if the economy was a pig, liberals have cleared the makeup section of every department store of its stock of lipstick.
Independence666 April 20, 2014 at 10:41 am
President Obama, and all of his destructive actions, are the result of an uninformed electorateRead More voting with their "hearts" instead of their brains. These kinds of people are very easily manipulated and lulled into a false sense of security. If they ever wake up, they will be shocked and ashamed of what they have done.

The death penalty certainly cuts down on the record number of incarcerations in America. Enough ofRead More this liberal crap on humane punishment. The word "humane' never enters the minds of these cold blooded killers. What is going to happen if another bombing takes place outside of Texas? What is going to happen with the next airplane hijacking, or Boston?
