That's the problem with anonymity on the Internet. It gives the scumbags of the world a voice.

There is no anonymity when the police can go to Twitter and Comcast for something like this. UnlessRead More this kid was making threats, he should be able to say whatever he wants. He wasn't making child porn or meth, just making fun of a politician... And who hasn't, really?!

God bless her! She is right. How dare she be denied her right to the license plate. If it saidRead More "KKK" or "White" or "Black Power" or something like "Gays Suck" then that would be hateful and inappropriate and hateful and should be denied. There is separation of Church and State. Remember? Tax dollars should even support churches and synagogues and mosques and their schools and organizations. It is the congregants' responsibility to support them, not the taxpayers! Those religions in the extreme preach hatred and division among people of different beliefs. No more tax exemptions for religious establishments and their schools!

folks the sky is not falling. I have a few credit cards. Once or twice a year either I notice a badRead More charge on my account, or there's one of these hacks, and my card needs to be cancelled. No money out of my pocket, and no real hassle, as I can use a different card until I get the replacement. No way am I going to carry around $100 all the time so I can buy gas. I do think that the credit card companies are going to get tired of the cost on *their* end from this fraud, and tighten up security. But I'm not going to change my life because of it. Just keep an eye on your account (I use Quicken so I see the charges the day after I make them).
Jonathan Kaplan April 20, 2014 at 08:45 am
Card using enthusaists kind of deserve to have this happen to them. By using your cards everywhereRead More you go, do you realize you are taking a large chunk of the businesses profit and choosing to give it to banks and credit card processors rather than the business itself? You, by using your cards, also force businesses to raise prices. Stop using your cards and you won't have to worry about security breaches AND you help businesses AND you help yourself by allowing businesses to lower prices.
Don April 20, 2014 at 10:09 am
For all the years I've had debit cards, never used them. If you're somewhere where credit cards, aRead More check or cash in your pocket can't be used, you shouldn't be there. Besides, most of you forget about all those last minute withdrawals and Irresponsibility takes over, yet you're still surprised- "what happened my bank account?"- the drunken stupor in the bar, or knee jerk "i gotta have it". Most can't afford those approaches, and the service fees know that

This is not comedy central....either report news or don't. Making fun of police roundup stories isRead More juvenile. We should be glad they are out there protecting us. Grow up PATCH writers.
Jacob Matthews April 20, 2014 at 10:14 am
Patch writers hide behind a keyboard spewing venom for anyone who can read or be read to. They areRead More cowards. Their "stories" are just that. Not a word of truth in any of them. This website is funded by politicians, more often than not written by them as well hiding behind an editors tag. It's propaganda Flo....and you are correct.....it is childish as well as unprofessional.

@GOM, 'Racism has nothing to do with it' ... opine: granted only a small percentage of 'we theRead More people' (WTP) ... KKK, nazis, hate groups... are overt racist. difficult to determine how much covert racism there is +++ perhaps a look at lee atwater's deathbed apology will provide some insight: >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> +++ Atwater say: You start out in 1954 by saying, "Nword, Nword, Nword, Nword." By 1968 you can't say "Nword-er". So you say stuff like forced busing, states' rights and all that stuff...obviously sitting around saying, "We want to cut this [cuts hurts minorities more]," is much more abstract than even the busing thing, and a hell of a lot more abstract than "Nword-er, nword-er." <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< +++ when i was growing up in my beloved South, all judges, sheriffs, etc, were klan members (weel almost all) ... most juries were 90% klan, schools were segregated, etc. well that overt racism doesn't exist today ... but atwater's abstract, covert, racism exist in 'spades'... and leaders (mostly GOPs) who know better pander to this racism to win elections ... eg, atwater and the willie horton ads ... cut this cut that policies ... voterID laws ... ohand, LBJ lost the South when he passed civil rights legislation ... >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> +++ andand racism is a factor motivating birthers, truthers and hard core BO-haters!!! one would have to be rather naive to believe otherwise. or as jack nicholson said 'you [they] cant handle the truth.' :) <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< +++ need more evidence look at recent comments here: 1) These 'kinds of people' are very easily manipulated ... 2) Sun tanned Jimmy Carter ... 3) let em go build it in africa where he should belong... etcetc >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> +++ jimmy should be in the top ten as well ... if RR hadnt dismantled carters energy policy america would be energy independent today and there would be no mushroom cloud, WMD, excuse for an oil motivated war in iraq ...

Why is this in the Patch news several days in a row? Enough!
Rick Biesada April 20, 2014 at 10:11 am
Obviously the police arrested this guy for the wrong crime. He is most likely an illegal alien, andRead More he should be deported to his country of origin after he pays the penalty for this crime or entrapment ... which ever the case may be. If the police are using tax payer equipment to spy on people, than why don't they round up the illegals and call ICE to start deportation proceedings? That would be a better use of our tax dollars then hassling people over victimless misdemeanors.
Rick Biesada April 20, 2014 at 10:14 am
Pat, this story is in the news for several days because SEX sells, therefore the Patch needs to doRead More more stories on our states lustful politicians. They are the biggest whores in the state so lets keep reading about them.

The death penalty certainly cuts down on the record number of incarcerations in America. Enough ofRead More this liberal crap on humane punishment.

If this guy wants free drinks, it's none of your business, and non of the business of that nosey cop neither. You people don't get it, it's flat out entrapment by having the soda available.
