Yes, being a criminal is, by definition, the result of illegal behavior. But let me ask you this Kurt, why did you choose to skip my opening sentence? Is it because you really can't come up with a reasonable explanation for Flower' behavior? Don't feel bad...no responsible parent can.

First, this isn't PAST behavior, the girl is on court supervision right now! And no, a "good" parent doesn't hide his child from the justice system by needlessly demanding a warrant. A "good" parent turns his child over to face the consequences of her inappropriate behavior. That's how we teach people to be responsible adults. What message does Flowers send to his child when he attempts to thwart the police in picking up his child, who is some 6 hours past the time she was supposed to be...

1. The rules of evidence likely wouldn't allow the jury to know the source of the payment.

2.. Just think, if Enbridge can get McFadden elected, they won't have to worry about silly, needless regulations like burying pipelines.

Unless one side or the other had a "Perry Mason" moment, you could see this coming from the beginning. Read the comments to any news story on this case and you'll see the nearly even division in opinion. Both Jesse and Kyle are very polaring figures and both readers and jurors seem to fall strongly into one camp or the other.

So Flowers has (1) a 16 year old child with enough past legal problems to warrant an electronic bracelet; (2) at least to anyone other than hospital personnel, she violates the conditions of her release; (3) when Police show up, the 1st question is "do you have a warrant?". Granted it's early in the investigation, but if these facts are accurate, maybe we should spend a little less time being an "activist" and a little more time being a "parent".

Robert, you may want to re-read the part where I stated it's early in the investigation?

And no, I didn't criticize the Hennepin County Sheriff. Perhaps you can refresh my memory and provide me with a cite that shows me where Stanek demanded a warrant or possibly interfered with his son's arrest?

And finally, you have a son that's wearing an ankle bracelet and is 6 hours past due his curfew and you're first question to police would be to ask "why they're there?" Seriously?...

....unless it's convenient not to.

is whether it will take Google over or under 5 seconds to disprove his assertion. In this case it was easily "under".

Go to the Tea Party in Wikipedia (their citations hold up). Virtually every story on the etymology of the Party refers to the 2008 meltdown.

That's what ya gotta love about Swifty, the facts never get in the way of his ideology.

Using phrases like "burned up credibility", "not taken seriously" and "public evisceration", then going on to cite Forbes. Did Forbes comment on Krugman before or after their hard-hitting piece on the "10 Best Places in America To Buy Ice Cream"?
