Get married before seeing how well y'all live together? Be real.

@33: Making a blanket statement--as you did in #6--about single moms and live-in boyfriends is not productive. You're talking about a lot of men who are decent enough, and cause no serious problems. Address the real issue of some men (and women) making terrible choices, sometimes with horrific consequences.

@30: Why eat at a diner that doesn't want you there, when you can have a tuna melt at home for a lot cheaper?

@19: A guy who had just robbed a bank with a gun, and was holding a knife and charging me? That would scare me, too. If that had happened to me, and I'd been armed, I probably would have shot him.

It's not that it made him guilty of armed robbery (though he was). It's that he was threatening the life of another person in that moment.

@30: Please consider not entering threads about Cody Spafford. Some of the commenters here do not wear kid gloves. You will read many hurtful, negative things about your friend. Reading more will only hurt you more.

I absolutely side-eye most police shootings. It seems like most of them could be avoided by using de-escalation tactics instead of multiple officers screaming orders at someone.

But they don't shoot to wound, nor should they. You aim for anything but center mass, it's that much easier to miss. People get amped up in stressful situations, and it's hard to shoot straight.

If Spafford was moving forward with the knife, refusing to drop it, then the detective was within bounds to shoot him. It's sad, and I'm curious about what pushed Spafford to the edge that he did these seemingly out of character things, but IF he charged the cop holding the knife, the cop was acting to preserve his own life.

Thanks, Pope. Dan did that for a bunch of these, but it looks like he forgot this time.

Minor quibble: The boy in the second story, Zachary, was killed by his mother and his mother's boyfriend. His bio dad is not in the picture.

Why the fuck do any of you care what some people choose to blog about? If it's not harming anyone, what's the big deal?

@32: Please to read previous comments about how snow tires work better than studded tires.
