Oh come on, people. It's not unreasonable to assume that the gun club would have safety precautions in place that would control where the bullets are going. These people aren't complaining about the n more »

Comment on: 'Boston police clamp down on slam dancing'
Posted 03/13/2012 12:11:57 EDT
They need to crack down on this kind of senseless violence elsewhere too. I was walking by the local high school, and there was a GANG BRAWL happening just behind the building! Two groups of masked yo more »

At first blush, this seems like a waste of time. The right to speech is not "the right to speech unless you're an idiot". I suspect this is still in the courts because of the questions it raises about more »
Comment on: 'Minn. student suspended over Michael Jackson dance'
Posted 02/07/2012 11:56:23 EST
So someone complained about a school-approved dance and the administration figured they'd throw the 9 yr old under the bus. Classy. How about you admit that approving it was a mistake, apologize for Y more »

@AtlSTEVE This seems to pretty clearly stipulate the knees, since they repeat it 4 times: 44.1 Clipping - Clipping is the act of throwing the body, from any direction, across or below the knees of an more »
Comment on: 'Court rules against teen in marijuana cookie case'
Posted 12/22/2011 11:37:13 EST
The presence of police makes this a very different matter for me. The kid has the right to remain silent, and when the school threatens to expel him unless he gives up that right they cross a line. Th more »
Comment on: 'Mass. gov. plans Paris trip for wife's birthday'
Posted 12/15/2011 03:42:43 EST
In other news, Gov. Patrick has a special gift for xenophobic half-literate commenters on Boston.com-- a trip for him and his wife to France. Seriously, I'm a little disappointed in the wingnuts. I th more »

How about you just decorate your churches, houses, cars, businesses, etc. and let the public space be public space? There was a lottery, you lost, end of story. Yes, the guys who put up a scene making more »

I think saving the wrapper is a pretty good indication that they intended to pay. You'd think security would use some common sense. "Oh dear, we didn't put the wrapper through. Here's $5. Sorry, our m more »

Comment on: '64 taken into custody at UMass-UNH game'

In other words, a grand total of 6 people were arrested for something other than underage drinking. How does that compare to a Pats game? Of 48 people who were taken into protective custody for intoxi more »
Comment on: 'Supermarkets start bagging self-serve checkouts'
Posted 09/26/2011 12:27:10 EDT
I feel like the people who expect a discount if they use the self-checkout would never see it as a self-checkout discount-- they'd scream and yell and whine about how they had to pay a CASHIER TAX(!!! more »

It must be really difficult to keep track of all the things you can't do as an uber-straight yahdood. Just to be clear, are crepes off limits because flour, eggs, milk, and salt are too complex for ou more »

There are numerous problems here, aside from the ridiculous comments. The blanket request is problematic for the American justice system. You need to have specifics in our courts. Who is requesting th more »

Posted 06/07/2011 03:51:22 EDT
Chara's hit was an interference. He got beat and he gave Pacioretty a shove to prevent a breakaway. If the Habs fix the rink, this problem won't keep happening. Comparing these two hits is ridiculous, more »

We need far better teaching about the actual processes of our legal system. The matter before the court is not whether you can charge someone with a DUI based on the odor of pot. Therefore all of the more »
