So no where in the story does it indicate they drew blood.  Which is pants on head ridiculous because if she were any shade darker than they would have gotten a warrant for a blood draw.

But they didn't nor did they provide any other information about searching the vehicle or impounding it as evidence.

No, they put bracelets on her and that was that, even though the vehicle was used in the commission of a felony.

This is the kinda crap we should be talking about, not her honkers or the fact that's she's rich white trash bingo.

Wookie_Jesus: alleged was used 5 time is a sparsely worded 5 paragraph article. i wonder how many times that word wouldn't be used if she were a darker shade of "presumed innocent"


You're barking way up the wrong tree if you think RawStory is some kind of closet racist rag. They're very professional, for a tabloid, and more sympathetic to brown people than white people. But you had to find a way to be offended, didn't you?

I've been robbed and, I'll be honest, it never occurred to me that the other person should die to satisfy my need for revenge...  I mean justice..

I've been robbed before - laptop, digital camera, ipod, phones, money etc.

Didn't really make me stabby because that shiat can be replaced.



It's replaced because you have to spend your hard-earned money on something...because some piece of shiat stole from you.

Stratohead: interesting information:

Melton...the victim...is well known in the area, and despite being a fark up who keeps ending up homeless, and is not known for being violent or threatening.
Also has a decent singing voice.

Quackenbush and her friend...decided after shooting a homeless dude, to go out to a Dennys (or whatever other dive was still serving food after 3am.

/really amazed this chick hasn't been doing lame porn videos.



I don't know about you, but when I shoot somebody, I have a sudden craving for Moons Over My-Hammy.

"A homeless man was yelling at me!"

Yes, that can be frightening.

"So I grabbed my firearm and exited the vehicle."

Hey, now, that's not a good idea.  You're already sitting in a 4000lb mobile-bunker with locking doors.  You can just drive off.

"I came around to the other side of the vehicle...."

That's an even worse idea.

"closed my eyes, fired two warning shots, and drove off!"

Oh. I'll admit it would be revenge. Sweet everloving revenge mixed with a tinge of righteous justice.
I know I'm in a callous minority here in thinking that someone who has no respect for others(thieves, rapists, and a host of other wastes of skin) should not be afforded any respect for their lives either.


But then, wouldn't YOU be guilty of not respecting lives, and therefore worthy of execution in your own example? It's not so much a 'callous minority' as a 'non critical-thinking minority'.

BigSquibowski: Seems to me the latter group has given up on society and feel it's not worth protecting.
The former group just wants to be left alone and believes in upholding the social contract.


Nah, the latter group hasn't given up.  Both believe in the social contract.  The "give up" people realize you can't prop up a social contract on your own with locks and guns.  This explains both the before and after for them: before, they never felt like they had a "safe bubble" because they know the social net is imperfect and that trying to physically secure yourself is mostly futile.  After the robbery, they understand that there's no quick fix, either physically or socially.   Any solution to the problem will have to be social-- even if the social solution is "everyone is now armed, takes watch shifts, and agrees to shoot robbers."

Saying "nothing can change that" was perhaps a bit glib and oversimplified on my part.  What I should have said there was something more like "there's nothing you can do alone to change this."   Arming yourself can't fix a social problem.  That requires a social fix.

But none of this was to argue that one of the options (gun or no gun) was better than the other-- just to try to explain why some people don't experience that brutal "loss of sanctuary" after a robbery.  They didn't think they had sanctuary, and they don't believe it's something you can achieve alone.  So they don't feel the loss, and they don't see buying a gun as a fix-- but that doesn't mean they don't see the problem and want it fixed.  It means they saw the problem before the robbery, too.

"Have you been implicated in a shooting?  Don't call the police, call Quackenbush & Associates & Sons.  We can help.  We can plead self defence in almost any situation, and sometimes temporary insanity and emotional distress, and only occasionally guilty with an explanation, but only if the judge doesn't look like he's buying it.  And if we don't win, you only pay half!  Don't wait, call Quackenbush & Associates & Sons at 1-888-GO-QUACK, that's 1-888-GO-QUACK, don't trust your freedom to anyone else unless maybe you don't have money.  Call today, or as soon as the victim stops screaming!"

I used to live in the Nashvegas area.  A friend of mind on FB just posted that they very nearly rented a house to this ...person... last April.

Also, has anybody else noticed what appear to be multiple lip piercings on the suspect?  Classy way to bring even more attention to your duckface.

Also...her dad referred to the local cops as hillbillies.  Yeah, keep digging, butthole.

Well I haven't looked at a criminal case since 1L and I'm pretty sure knowing that one doesn't talk to the cops without the presence of counsel or make stupid statements in public especially when someone is facing criminal charges or a civil action is sort of basic 101 in law schools.

Did he actually use those words?  "Decided to get out of the car and fire"?  And he's a lawyer?  I bet he advertises on TV.

My guess is that he's the kind of lawyer that hasn't even looked at a criminal case since he was a 1L.

Well I haven't looked at a criminal case since 1L and I'm pretty sure knowing that one doesn't talk to the cops without the presence of counsel or make stupid statements in public especially when someone is facing criminal charges or a civil action is sort of basic 101 in law schools.


I've known a few lawyers who tend to look down on criminal defense practice as beneath them, they tend to be folks who've had a rather privileged existence and take it for granted that they'll never need to remember even the basics of criminal defense.  They just refer such grubby matters to a junior associate or someone outside their firm, and get on with their lives of dumping work on junior partners, scheduling their next trip to the country club, charity gala and assorted schmoozing activities that their timesheet will categorize as client development.  If they are absolutely forced to deal with criminal defense, they're too  arrogant to actually get themselves up to speed on what they've forgotten and bluff their way through with a "do you know who I am" or "I'm a very good friend of (insert name of judge, sheriff/chief of police, state or local politician they've given campaign contributions to or played golf with)"

I think daddy's little girl has got herself into a jam someplace outside his 'pull.'

phalamir: keylock71: I'm shocked she didn't pour gasoline on the poor guy and set him on fire after she shot him.

She and her friend were late for dinner; that stuff would make them late for the soup course.


At 3am?
