The media reported that Hillary sent out a tweet supporting these women. Since the facts about this case have been exposed the same media has been silent about Hillary's rush to judgement. If Trump had made the same mistake, they would be all over it.

If the country has to choose between a party that can't bring itself to correctly identify radical Islamic Terrorism or Trump's bluster, they'll pick the latter.

The woman at the center of this debacle hasn't been heard from since the incident unfolded. With no breathalyzer or independent witnesses, this she said/ He said will end up costing the city. The public's insatiable appetite for airing dirty laundry shouldn't justify a costly investigation where no provable crime occurred.

The hearings for Benghazi investigation were bungled. However, it's Hillary's own words in E-mails to her daughter and the Prime Minister of Egypt that reveal a cunning, deceptive and calculated Secretary of State trying to spin the events of the attack on our embassy to cover up her foreign failures. The fact that Republicans on the committee botched the hearings shouldn't absolve Clinton's deception to the family members of the fallen victims.

In Denver, Colorado where the headquarters of Direct TV is based, they fired a wheelchair bound employee with an excellent record of job performance for testing positive for Marijuana. Direct TV didn't care that this employee was a licensed card holder to receive medical marijuana to treat multiple-scurrilous or that he scored exemplary evaluations by Direct TV's own management. This company fought the case all through the appeals process, setting a very bad precedent that corporations can legally fire any employee for a failed test even if they are licensed by a doctor to use MM. An employee shouldn't have to chose between his job and his health.

The fact that pot stays in your system weeks after any impairment has dissipated is the leading reason why so many workers fail drug tests. Most of these applicants are capable workers. As more states opt to legalize, it's imperative for businesses to modify their drug testing policies to the world we live in today, not the 1980s.

"I got it. Capdisgeo thinks African Americans are all violent, because they are black."
Your rebuttal doesn't address any of the legitimate points raised by capdisgeo. Your taking a page from the Al Sharpton playbook; Ignore the troubling facts, don't hold criminals to account, just call the other side a racist and blame all the ills of the African-American community on a racist society.
Unfortunately, this inflammatory strategy is quite effective in shutting down any meaningful dialogue. Race hustlers such as Sharpton don't offer any solutions, they just portray African-Americans as victims of white suppression. Few in the media have the guts to call out these race hustlers for fear that they'll be branded a racist as well.

I suspect the victims of these two are getting more satisfaction with being paid the ordered restitution rather than having them sent to jail where they couldn't pay the money back as quickly. If the victims wanted the defendants to receive a jail sentence they would have complained that justice wasn't being served.

In response Union said in a prepared statement, “We are disappointed the Mayor chose to mischaracterize what was discussed.”

Union has to make a better attempt of clarifying the reasons why they oppose this project than just simply saying their point of view was mischaracterized. The Mayor lodged a serious accusations against Union. I don't think he pulled that charge out of thin air. Both sides should summarize their discussions regarding the Nott Street site in a clearer context. Also it appears that Union bought the building on the site as a bargaining chip to delay the project.

Lawmakers and law enforcement need to take a proactive approach to dealing these scammers by funding tasks forces that can effectively go after them as well as stiffen the penalties for their crimes. The ease in which these scammers can set up a boiler room to bilk people out of millions makes their crime quite appealing to them. Unfortunately, it takes many sad stories before any meaningful action is done to address this growing and widespread problem. Its only going to get worse.

A recent national poll showed 59% of all voters deemed Hillary to be dishonest. What kind of candidates refuses to address or engage his opponent biggest flaw? A vanity candidate that is interested in raising awareness of issues important to him, not winning the White House.
