[50 Shades] What two consenting adults do in their bedroom is NEVER your business.

I'm appalled at the sex police up in arms over this movie. It is NOT your business if two consenting adults want to engage in homosexual sex, heterosexual sex, BDSM, oral, anal, or any other consensual sex act. Keep your morals out of my bedroom.

If one group attacks another group, but hides among civilians...

Hasn't the cowardly group using human shields earned the lion's share of the blame when those civilians are killed in retaliation?

This is not directly related to the current I/P mess, just general musing.

No Knock SWAT Raids

This utilization of this necessary police tool has quickly grown to unnecessary levels. There is no reason to apply for a No Knock search warrant for the vast majority of drug raids -- unless going up against the cartel, we shouldn't ever hear about these things.

No Knock exceptions were designed for the pinnacle of extreme danger and should be utilized in a tiny fraction of police raids: looking for murderers, terrorists, kidnap victims, etc.

The risks are too high and rewards too low to justify a No Knock raid on a low level drug house. This madness has to stop.

What happened to the posters supporting the hot car baby killer?

There were SEVERAL posters in the first couple threads on this story who were extremely condescending in their disdain for anyone who supported the arrest of the father in this case. They were vocal and loudly proclaimed how the murderer's search history was irrelevant and that we were wrongfully convicting this man in the court of public opinion.

Their voices are curiously absent from the recent threads detailing the mounting, crushingly-overwhelming evidence of his knowledge and his premediation -- evidence of his guilt.

I'm glad that the father gave a statement to police without counsel. He may have gotten away with this if he had invoked his right to remain silent.

Let's all stand outside Hobby Lobby and pass out free contraceptives to employees and customers

The accomplishments of the Women's rights movement over the last century are not going to be chipped away at without a hell of a fight.
