Article Week

Its been a relatively calm week, so to find stuff that pisses me off I'm searching the web for new articles that piss me off. Here's my top three picks:

1) Pennsylvania Judges accused of Jailing Kids for Cash: It found an article telling how a Pennsylvania judges accepted millions of dollars from a juvenile detention center to have kids sent to them. The judges would go and have hearings with no lawyers that would last two minutes then sentence the kids to the juvenile center. Now first and for most those judges are ass holes who's egos are so big they feel compelled to destroy young lives for money. Now they have created kids who have not trust in there government system and judicial court; However, theirs two sides to this also. I don't know the age of theses kids, but you would think one of them would have thrown up the red flag when the judge wont allow you to have a lawyer present at your trial.

I'm no student of the law but I know i have rights; all you have to do is turn on the T.V. to know you can get a lawyer no matter what. Now don't get me wrong I'm not defending there pompous jackass judges, I'm just saying if my neck was on the line for a bull shit crime I fight tooth and nail to use everything to my advantage.

2) South Carolina Cops Making Arrests in Phelps Case: In this article it says that cops are busting people for marijuana possessions and drilling them with questions about the swimmer Phelps. Now first off i just have to say, I don't look down on Phelps for his actions I just look down on him for being such a dumb ass and not hiding it better. I really don't give a shit what celebrities do in there private lives. Just don't let it leek out into public, i know sometimes its hard because of the paparazzi. In Phelps case it was some person with a picture phone that blew his cover.

I personally still like the guy, and if he can do all he does while drugged up then more power to him; however, in this case police are wasting time on a few guys with pot to try to get Phelps punished. That's so damn stupid, in our economic times we wast our cities tax dollars to try to punish one man when there rapist and killers out there. To me that's fucking stupid, wasting time on some people who smoke pot. God forbid they smoke pot, what are they gonna do sit in there basement and watch weird T.V. shows with bright colors. Wow call the swat team those mofoes are crazy.

Really I know lots of pot heads they are very calm layed back people; most are hippies so the most disturbance they would consider causing in there lifetime would be a peaceful protest. So stop wasting our money on trying to punish one man who didn't hurt anyone, but himself from this experience.






3) Scientist Eye Debris after Satellite Collision: This article interested me more than pissing me off, but i put it in anyways. In the article it explains that a Russian and American satellites collided sending debris everywhere. Which could hurt other satellites, or even the Hubble Telescope. Now I don't have much to say about this but "nice driving boys." We litter our planet now we have even started to pollute our space orbit. Now don't get me wrong i think space stuff is sweet shit, but I'm just saying as a race people very junkie. No sweet though I'm sure our kids will clean it up.

I agree with you on everything on this post. Well, most posts...except the one about the cell phone one because I AM addicted to mine. haha. Anyways...esp. the Michael Phelps case. I just think it's ridiculous.

Fitz said...

Micheal Phelps - He wasn't using his noggin' was he? I'd have to agree with ya on that one. Although smoking pot probably wasn't the best choice but if you're going to do it, try not having people snap photos of you, I mean YOU'RE AN OLYPIAN GOLD MEDALIST. I just feel bad for people that thought of him as someone to idolize. Regardless, he is a great swimmer, let's just hope that Mary Jane doesn't slow him down.

this is hilarious but i agree with you especially about the phelps thing everyone should get off his nutz about it he smoked some weed now he is getting treated like a terrorist thats crazy but keeping coming and i will keep reading.

Micheal Phelps - I would have to agree with you, and Fitz it was a dum choice smoking pot at a college party. I don't agree with the cops coming and arresting people days later. Did you here about the lady having 8 kids and she already had 6, children services was talking about taken them away because they feel like she can't handle that many kids. What do you think about that one?

I have to agree with you, the Phelps situation i agree with the most. Phelps just made a bad choice but he is an excellent swimmer which is why everyone is making a big deal out of nothing.

I have been really interested in the micheal phelps case as well. I know that he is suppose to be a role model and everything but thats not what he is paid for, he is paid for his talent. People make mistakes, i dont think they should make a big deal out of this, just to make an example out of him.

Rico the lady with liek 14 kids shoudl be given a chance to raise them. No one knows wahat the limmit of her parentign skills. She should be checked up on tho to insure she can handle it. If they find she cant handle it they should assist her, or if necessay give the kids to a family who can care for them, for the childerns sake.

Issue 1: The judicial system is in sad shape, mostly because of situations like this. It is very disturbing to think a judge would accept cash to send kids away to a juvenile detention center. However, I would be more disturbed with what motivates these centers to do this? There are bigger implications here than just some scumbag judge (and God willing, there is any chance he reads this: YOU ARE A SCUMBAG!) accepting cash for convictions. What could these implications be? Well, considering the age of the "criminals" involved, it could be a hub for sexual slavery or child pornography. Why else would an institution pay millions for juvenile convicts? If I were a Federal Agent, I'd be paying this detention center a visit in the future to investigate...

Issue 2: This one is just too easy. Barney Fife was looking to make a name for himself. What kind of fascist mind thinks he can actually charge Michael Phelps with something when all he has is, at best, circumstancial evidence. Yeah, it's a photo of him smoking pot. Big deal! When you can't prove that it even happened in your state, you have no case, period! This sheriff needs to put his Wyatt Earp souvenir badge away and get with the times.

Issue 3: Honestly, it was an accident. Things are going to happen in space and with the space program as we've seen with Apollo 13, Challenger, Columbia, etc. Some of the debris probably floated out into space and those that didn't will burn up upon re-entry. When it comes to space, I think we need to put more funding in watching the Asteroid Belt and looking out for stray comets that may collide with our planet.
