So now that the Obama admin has released 2000 more illegal alien criminals in the US and have plans to release 3000 more over the next month we can expect more rape, murder and other crimes??

 

They say they are non-violent....and they are keeping track of them....yeah like they kept track of  the guns they were suppose to track sold to drug cartel??

littlebytesnews's comment, March 4, 2013 12:28 AM
Yes, in this case it led to murder...also heard today on Fox that many of the so called 'non-violent' illegals they released are non-deportable, meaning their own countries won't take them back because they are high level offenders, not "non-violent"....another lie, before they said only a couple hundred were released and now it's around 2,000 and soon another 3,000 if they can get away with it....

It is basicly saying that during obamas first few months his approval rating is going down by aproximetly 2/3. obama is trying to do the right thing but he is jumping into thigs too fast.

Brandon Cole's curator insight, March 15, 2013 10:15 AM

This article talks about how Obama's approval rating in New York plummeted last month. Even though it went down in New York it only went down 19 points nationally.

VIDEO: Drunk 18-year-old Florida woman hits trooper, takes off | Block 4 Gov & Law | Scoop.it

ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. —An 18-year-old Orange County girl was arrested early Sunday after hitting a trooper and then driving away, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

 

Troopers said Gina Thais Garciaronqullio is charged with leaving the scene of an accident with injuries and DUI property damage after the incident.

 

According to an arrest report, Garciaronqullio hit the trooper while he was working another crash near University Boulevard.

 

The trooper was able to go after Garciaronqullio's car down and then preformed a Pursuit Immobilization Technique (P.I.T.) maneuver on as it to stop it from moving, the report said.

 

Officials said Garciaronqullio told them she had been at the University of Central Florida watching a One Direction movie and was headed home. Troopers asked her several times how much she had to drink, but said she only drank orange juice.

 

Troopers had Garciaronqullio preform several field sobriety tests and take a breath test. The breath test resulted in a 0.139 percent and 0.143 percent blood alcohol levels, according to the report.

Concept of adultery could be abolished in law as grounds for divorce in wake of Government’s plans for gay marriage | Block 4 Gov & Law | Scoop.it

This article isn't so much talking about the marriage of two men or women, but the divorce of them. It's kind of saying that being a gay couple, you can't divorce your partner because of adultery since it's not the same as a man cheating on his wife or vice versa. In my opinion, I would say if the couple isn't happy and no longer wants to be married, that's their decision to get a divorce.

Florida man robs Girl Scouts selling cookies

Florida man robs Girl Scouts selling cookies | Block 4 Gov & Law | Scoop.it

CLERMONT, Fla. - Clermont police are looking for a man who stole cookie cash from a Girl Scouts troop.

 

The theft happened Saturday outside the Blockbuster video store off Citrus Tower Boulevard in Clermont.

Two middle-school Girl Scouts and their troop leader, Lynette Baker, were closing up their booth when a man pretended to be a last-minute customer.  Instead, he snatched their money box, stealing nearly $300.

 

"I need a policeman. I'm with a Girl Scout booth at Citrus Tower Blockbuster. We were just robbed," Baker said in a 911 call.

 

In the background of the call, the girls can be heard crying...

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- Whether you like them or not, more than 50 new red light cameras will soon be popping up at intersections in Palm Beach County.

 

But the Contact 5 Investigators discovered the cameras are catching more than just every day drivers running red lights -- government Palm Tran workers are also breaking the law.

 

Police say, it could be putting your safety at risk. 

 

"Due to the mass and size of the vehicles, there is a difference," said a traffic homicide investigator.  "It's scary thinking a truck that size is going through a red light..."

Erika Mathias's insight:

I feel like adding more cameras are a good idea. Also, just because they work for the government, doesn't mean they can just break the law. That's kind of shallow if you ask me. If they can punish people for running red lights, they shouldn't get any special freedom for it.

Erika Mathias's insight:

I think that this article is a good idea. If more people are in need of free schooling, it should be a simple process to become enrolled. I believe everyone should be educated to a certain point, even for free. Just because you can't afford a high education doesn't mean you shouldn't have any schooling. Education is important to everyone, without it there is more of a chance of crime, poverty, and people who just don't know what to do with life.

Shalyssa Musolf's comment, February 6, 2013 11:34 PM
I would like to agree with this also. If a family can't afford to put there children in a school shouldn;t result in not even having a education. Everyone deserves to be put into a school and learn just like each and every one of us. Everyone deserves a chance to persue their dreams with the edcuation they have. If people are willing to take this opportunity to go to a free school, there will be less people not knowing what to do in life.
