I've been a cop for 22 years and this is freakin outrageous. Does this idiot prosecutor have nothingRead More better to do? This is NOT what sexual exploitation laws are designed for. A 17 yo/15yo relationship is age appropriate. Should he have done this? Probably not. You pull the kid in with his parents, explain to them that this was not a wise choice, slap him on the hand and let that be his first and last warning. Don't ruin this boy's life over something so trivial!

17 and 15 is like so close in age. These were just kids doing kids stuff except it's the year 2014.Read More Let this be over for the kids sake!

Someone asked me this week to help them renew their passport. When they saw how long it would take,Read More they said they could go to a local place and get it the same day for $300. I asked the name, and she said "something Spanish." I told her it was probably a fraud and criminal. I wish I had gotten more info, but it was a place in Alexandria. I should call and ask if she got one!

This is great. We get to shelter, feed, and keep healthy this guy for 12 years before we releaseRead More him. He's getting off easy. Think about how much damage this guy has caused: FAKE social security numbers - for getting government handouts???; identification cards - for VOTING illegally? There's no telling how much these fake documents have impacted us.

Too bad deportation doesn't precede incarceration. a coslly way of dealing with illegally residentRead More culprits guilty of aiding and abetting illegal immigration. Afterthought: Don't quite know what to do about similarly culpable chief executives and members of Congress.

Latest tragedy reveals another danger of leaving children unattended in cars.

I lived for nine years in New York City and rode the subway trains all those years. The closingRead More doors are programmed (or operated) to re-open when striking an obstruction. I believe the same is true of my "automatic" garage door closer / opener. It seems that power windows could be engineered to behave the same -- which leads me to the observation - our power windows do not operate when the car's power is off (we have 2005 Prius) so how was this possible? Was the engine lef running?

It's called rear view mirrors and windows. I don't buy the story. I think criminal charges should beRead More in order.

I could see putting the child in the car, while it's running, for a/c, while unloading packages inRead More the trunk...and then returning the cart to the cart parking area. That would take a few minutes, not negligent or criminal. That said, was the child in a car seat? Shouldn't be able to reach the power window switch while in a car seat. Also should lock the power windows from the driver's panel, so kids in back can't open them.

Huh? You mean there is still an Irongate? Has that area improved any? I recall it use to be upRead More there with the likes of the former Prince Cole Apts., Georgetown South and Coverstone.
