OldManDownDRoad: Oh, yeah, this guy was one of the legion of bums, er, I mean the sainted homeless, who infest downtown Chapel Hill. He was one of the crowd that hangs out at the BofA crosswalk area pestering people for change.Sheesh, when the case first hit the papers I remembered seeing him and his backpack on the corner, mooching money off the suckers. Glad I didn't know what was in the backpack at the time./a problem best fixed with a fire hose and a few K-9 units
durbnpoisn: I DNRTA. But I do have something to say about bakcpacks...See, jerkoffs like those bombers in Boston have really screwed things up for people like me. I can't bring a backpack with me anywhere any more without it being searched. Not like I have a lot to hide... But please... I like some privacy and less hassle.See... This is the thing... When my son was first born, like 14 years ago, it wasn't uncommon for both he and my wife to be passed out sleeping at 7:00 at night. So, for lack of anything else to do, I would go to the movies. Since I don't like paying concession stand prices for, well, anything, I would bring my own food, in a backpack.There were cops right there in the theater. Never once did I get searched. This is actually a good thing, because I always brought a few beers with me too... (This is Fark after all, so it's okay to point that out.)But I can't do that any more. I would SO get arrested if I even tried.

Gordon Bennett: MBooda: Backpack in question?[ak1.polyvoreimg.com image 300x300]Too obvious. I suspect it's more like this one.
OldManDownDRoad: DrFaustus:It's been about 8 years since I graduated, but is there any chance "4 quarters" is still there? God he was annoying, he never asked for "a dollar," or "some change," always "hey man, you got 4 quarters?" I got so sick of him, I had to walk past him to class every damn day...Tall skinny black dude? Yeah, he's a pest. I think he's got some sort of mental deficiency so I just ignore him instead of telling him to fark off.Yeah, it's gotten much worse - to the point that the students don't come downtown much after dark and several businesses have gone under due to the decrease in walking traffic. Pepper's Pizza went under two months ago, they had been there for ages. Ben and Jerry's closed. School Kids Records closed. Even The College Shop, the place that sold UNC-logo wear, went out of business. Hell, I don't even like walking down Franklin Street in the middle of the day, I walk up West Franklin now for lunch. Got tired of people getting in my face.Couple months ago I witnessed a bum fight and caught the video on my phone. Gave it to the Downtown Merchant's Association to use in their ongoing battle with the Town Council over the problem. They showed the video at a council meeting - but since everyone on the council lives out in suburbia, they once again ignored the problem.
UsikFark: Why do you plead guilty if you think you won't get a fair trial?
redsquid: Just a hypothetical here- Would someone get five to seven years if they shot and strangled the judges daughter then carried here bones in a backpack?
Harry Freakstorm: [wwwcache.wral.com image 220x165]Simpson's Nasally Corporate Lawyer: Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I ask you. How many of you would want to kill and stuff her in a backpack? Huh? I rest my case.I wonder if they brought her urn in to the courtroom in a backpack?
LindenFark: UsikFark: Why do you plead guilty if you think you won't get a fair trial?He plead guilty to manslaughter to avoid being found guilty of murder.He admitted to necrophilia so he's absolutely guilty of something, but exactly what and determining the appropriate punishment is complex. He claims he didn't kill the victim and the District Attorney willfully destroyed evidence that might have proven his case. That the DA lost her job based on her actions, and the current prosecution is willing to accept his lesser plea adds a little credibility to his claim.As for the accused, as aself-admitted corpse diddler, there's not much of a"good name" to fight for. With no physical evidence to exonerate him, he's smart to go the practical route and minimize his loses.

fappomatic: So, she was hot?
OldManDownDRoad: NC's psych facilities are a disgrace - most are run by political hacks with no background in medicine or psychiatric care. Every couple of months there's a story in the papers about some patient death or maltreatment.
groppet: See if he wasent homeless he could have kept her in the trunk of his car like me ummmm like this guy I know.
Skiboo: His arrest came after one of his friends told authorities that Dorman admitted to killing a prostitute and had asked for help disposing of her remains, which he had in a backpack. Dorman told investigators, however, that he only found the remains and planned to use them for his sexual gratification.It's this kind of thing that makes me feel like a normal well-adjusted person.
FirstDennis: So "remains" is plural, even it just refers to one person? Huh.
