Shirtless man charged following downtown fight

"The primary suspect was reported as a man, with no T-shirt..."

Athens police determine woman not shoplifting when newborn dropped on head

[quote][b]dahreese[/b] - In the meantime, over five thousand Americans have been killed in the Middle East in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Not to mention the innocent people there killed by their terrorists and our bombs.[/quote]

Are we starting a new thread here? My *ignorant* little mind isn't seeing the relevance to the "shoplifting" story... Puzzled

So you slam the posters in the follow-up article for assuming she was shoplifting, yet you assume the posters here are all Christian? I see how it works for ya.

[quote][b]dahreese[/b] - Interesting, too - unless I've missed it, nothing has been said in the article about the race of the mother, rather it has just been 'assumed' by her, "she was shoplifting", critics:

    Blog: Watching movies by myself

    Summary:  I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff.
