Ricky Osborne's comment, July 21, 8:03 PM
That would be a scary experience to have to go through. One should always feel safe when they are at home. I think the officers are at some fault for not thoroughly searching the house for the intruder. This happens on a rare basis I assume so faith in the boys in blue should not be shaken due to this one incident. I'm just glad no one was injured during this incident.

Why Big Tobacco Shrugs at a $24 Billion Verdict

Why Big Tobacco Shrugs at a $24 Billion Verdict | Criminology and Economic Theory | Scoop.it
The dollar amount won't stand up on appeal and the tobacco industry long ago accounted for liability
more...
Ricky Osborne's comment, July 21, 7:53 PM
It is interesting to see that cigarette companies have already calculated punitive damages into their business expenses as the article pointed out. This industry has flourished over the years even though their products have been known to be hazardous to the human body. Tobacco is far worse than other drugs such as marijuana yet it is allowed to be sold on the market and bought. I think that the excessive rewards given to the widows of tobacco users who have died should not be reversed. Tobacco companies such as Reynolds America must be penalized for the deaths they cause. Such penalties are carried out for every other company and the products in which they create. This is only fair.

Ricky Osborne's comment, July 21, 7:59 PM
The use of bad or expired food products seems to be a staple in the country of China. This news that McDonalds has been selling expired meat does not suprise me one bit. The regulations of such products are not up to the same standards as they are here in the U.S. This leads to companies, even reputable ones like McDonalds, to bend the rules and save money anyway they can. I'm not saying this was done intentionally but there is a high probability that is was.

I'm not surprised there are post like these as I have been in Alaska a long time and have heard racial remarks before. It is very sad to see people post them freely like this. I believe in a society of free speech but I don't agree with spewing hate or encouraging violence in forums either. I have a hard time taking away people's freedom of speech as people who are going to do evil things are going to do them whether they are allowed to be anonymous on craigslist or any other forum. Ultimately the Yupik commenter did the write thing and offered forgiveness instead of more hatred. A definitely noble thing of him to say.

I'm amazed that caffeine in this form is so easily accessible. I have taken large amount of caffeine before but I had no idea it could be fatal like this. So many of our young people are drinking copious amounts of caffeine and I wonder how many more kids will die before some sort of regulation is handled.
