One item that , to my surprise, has always been approved, at least when I have flown to Europe andRead More Alaska, was a 6 ft tape measure. This was a favorite garroting tool in the James Bond early films, very sharp metal, a quick loop around the neck, the victim is dispatched. Now I suppose they will be looking for it.... What they should do , if they are serious about security, is to do as Israel does, check all baggage before it even gets into the airport terminal. What a nice crowded place to cause mischief.....And for sure do profiling.... where do the majority of terrorists come from?? Norway? Sweden?? Finland??

I'm on the fence about the father's reaction. I don't have children but I believe my initial gutRead More would be to jump out of my seat to go and see my son. However if I'm in shock because I've been told that my son is probably dead, I may stutter and be frozen for a moment. The other details are very disturbing. The pipe that is used for discipline, the blood in the bedroom, the step mom failing the lie detector test and the fact that someone has been feeding the boy. He is a good looking kid and the news reports say that he is very bright. I'm glad they found the kid and I hope his parents were not abusing him. Overall it does not look good for the parents. Nancy Grace is so slimy, bleh.
Donna Smith June 27, 2014 at 04:35 pm
I watched the 3 minute segment again and I am even more disgusted by how she handled this. What IRead More didn't catch the first time was that she told the father that his son was found alive BEFORE the reports were confirmed, that her people were trying to confirm the reports but she told him anyway. I find that to be extremely vile. What if the reports were wrong? Thankfully the boy was found alive. There are way too many cases of missing kids who are never found.
RON Ostrodamus June 29, 2014 at 05:57 pm
Did anyone notice that the police brought in a "cadaver dog" who found nothing asRead More obviously this canine's training is very specific. Maybe a dog that is trained to sniff out missing people from an article of clothing, or one used to locate fleeing suspects would have been a better idea. You would think the FBI could figure that one out. Another bungle in the jungle. Don't get me started on the media.

A Roseville animal shelter is caring for 35 cats rescued from a Detroit home, where 60 others were found dead. (Patch file photo)
Lauren Melcher June 24, 2014 at 02:09 pm
Melanie Wittner of Hopeful Hearts rescue and Laura Releasethehounds Lauer of Mutts Of Motown rescueRead More were two of the heroes who helped remove the live cats and are caring for them, among others. This was Heaven Will Wait cat rescue. This is what people who turned their animals over to this woman sent their animals into. If you are going to surrender your pet to a rescue group, ask to see where they will be housed. If they refuse, then move on to another group. We are responsible for our pets. And rescues are responsible for acting as role models for pet guardianship. This woman crossed the line from being part of the solution to being a huge part of the problem. Please always check out where your pets are going if you must rehome them. This is all too common. Mental illness or not, this woman needs held accountable for her actions. We don't let someone with mental illness who murders someone get off scot free, why should she get away with allowing dozens of cats to suffer and die slowly and painfully and then rot away amongst living cats? Rescues had offered help to her for at least three years and tried to notify the authorities and nothing was done. This whole situation could've been prevented if just one animal control officer had taken the time to go follow up on one of the many complaints made against her over the years. This fell through the cracks despite reputable and responsible rescuers making every attempt to get action taken over the years. I hope this does not shape the public view of what animal rescue is- this is what happens when a very sick individual refuses to accept help when offered and keeps taking in more animals when they're already far overextended. Reputable, responsible animal rescue is absolutely nothing like what this sick woman put those cats through.

I'm sorry but I don't believe the statement from the parents about not being racist. The kidRead More admitted initially that is what was behind his attack. It is the culture that a lot of them grow up with. On one hand I understand why it still exists. Despite many good intentions from people on both sides; racism is still alive and well. We still have a long way to go. I just hope they learned something from this and can make a positive change in their lives. Holding onto their hatred isn't going to help them go anywhere in life. They could all have received much tougher sentences. So I hope that they can learn and move forward and do something positive. The culture of hate needs to stop.
