Re: “Here's Two Lakewood Residents Calling the Cops to Complain There are Black People Around

Still trying to figure out how you sound black, but she sounds southern. Many people associate this sound to blacks because most blacks are of southern heritage and the idioms and cadences have survived transplantation , but its not exclusive to black people.

Re: “On the Road with the Wheelie Kings of Cleveland

Had 20k worth of bikes and gear stolen by these clowns.
It's all fun and games for them, but I had to work my ass off for 3 years to buy new bikes and gear(and guns) just to get back to where I was.

Re: “Chuck Booms Fired From 92.3 The Fan

Most would agree that Booms was a horrible host. No factual substance... No formal sports background... Arrogant & ignorant to boot!!! Firing him was definitely a step in the right direction!!! #hisvoicewasworsethanchalkonchalkboards

Re: “Was An 81-Year-Old Wife, Mother and Grandmother Abducted By Her Own Daughter or Rescued From a Bad Situation?

I believe it is a shame this woman has been separated from her family who truly care for her, and whom were responsibly caring for her before the sister removed her from her home. The courts need to rethink this and return her to her family. The only people I see who give a darn about her money are the sister and the lawyers. To insinuate that her children, which had always been loving and caring for their mother only had interest in her money is ridiculous. The money is just a fact of her life. It has no bearing on the love this family has for the mother. It is only a big deal because outside interference made it so.

Where the BSK. Or Kenny I enjoyed them that would be a good add. For Booms he didn't bother me he did make me mad sometimes. Yet he also made me laugh so he did his job. This is still a man job and I feel bad no matter what. I hope he bounce back

Re: “Chuck Booms Fired From 92.3 The Fan

Booms is a guy who used to get his ass kicked in high school and never knew why. He's obnoxious, loud, overbearing and childish. I am thrulled to never hear his whining again.

Re: “Chuck Booms Fired From 92.3 The Fan

It's a miracle. My morning drives will be improved without that jackass yelling into the mic. Have a different opinion than his? Prepare to get insulted and hawked... unless your Kiley in which you had to sit there and suffer without being able to explain yourself. I don't care if he was a comedian or that he's from Cleveland, the guy was a prick. Good riddance.

Side Note: I don't want Ken Carman in the morning full time. I like the spot he's in at night, much more loose. Ken Carman is the best guy on the network, but putting him in the morning without The Kid just isn't a good idea. He has the best sign off out of all of them with his earnest thanking of every one of his listeners, it's a great way to end every night.

Re: “Chuck Booms Fired From 92.3 The Fan

I'm sure he's a great guy, but hard to take on the radio. I stopped watching Tailgate 19 because he constantly interrupts the other host of the show. I want to hear what the ex-NFL players have to say about the Browns. Not a stand-up comedian who never played the game.

Re: “Was An 81-Year-Old Wife, Mother and Grandmother Abducted By Her Own Daughter or Rescued From a Bad Situation?

What an infuriating situation. Reading about this mother of a large tight knit family being kidnapped and used as a pawn by a self exiled absentee daughter is appalling. How can a judge be unable to consider that this woman's days on earth are numbered and what is best for her would be to interact daily with her loving husband, her sons & grandchildren that have always been there in her life.
Allowing a daughter custody who without any family discussions just kidnaps her mother & keep this mother hidden away from everyone that she ever knew is insanity.

This is justice? We humans hold judges in high regard to use wisdom in resolving conflict and enforcing fairness. Where is the judicial wisdom in this case? This judge needs to brush up on the wisdom of the wise King Solomon.

(b) As used in this section, "public place" means any place to which the general public has access and a right to resort for business, entertainment or other lawful purpose, but does not necessarily mean a place devoted solely to the uses of the public. It also includes the front or immediate area of any store, shop, restaurant, tavern or other place of business and any grounds, areas or parks where persons would congregate.

(e) It is an affirmative defense to a charge under this section that the actor was not otherwise prohibited by law from possessing the weapon, and that the weapon was kept ready at hand by the actor for defense purposes, while he or she was engaged in his or her lawful business or occupation, which business or occupation was of such character or at such a place as to render the actor particularly susceptible to criminal attack, such as would justify a prudent person in having the weapon ready at hand.
(f) It is an affirmative defense to a charge under this section that the actor was not otherwise prohibited by law from possessing a knife having a blade two and one-half (2-1/2) inches in length or longer, and that either (i) the actor at the time was engaged in a lawful business or pursuit and that business or pursuit requires a knife having a blade two and one-half (2-1/2) inches in length or longer as a tool of trade or pursuit, or (ii) the knife having a blade two and one-half (2-1/2) inches in length or longer was kept ready at hand by the actor for defense purposes, while he or she was engaged in his or her lawful business or occupation, which business or occupation was of such character or at such a place as to render the actor particularly susceptible to criminal attack, such as would justify a prudent person in having such a knife ready at hand.
(g) Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 601.13 and division (a) of Section 601.99, whoever violates this section is guilty of possessing certain weapons on or about public places, a misdemeanor of the first degree.

(b) No person shall display, market for sale or sell any replica or facsimile of a firearm in the City. The provisions of this subsection shall not apply to any replica or facsimile firearm which, because of its distinct color, exaggerated size, or other design feature, cannot reasonably be perceived to be a real firearm.
(c) Except in self-defense, no person shall draw, exhibit or brandish a replica or facsimile of a firearm or simulate a firearm in a rude, angry or threatening manner, with the intent to frighten, vex, harass or annoy or with the intent to commit an act which is a crime under the laws of the City, state or federal government against any other person.
(d) No person shall draw, exhibit or brandish a replica or facsimile of a firearm or simulate a firearm in the presence of a law enforcement officer, fire fighter, emergency medical technician or paramedic engaged in the performance of his or her duties, when the person committing such brandishing knows or has reason to know that such law enforcement officer, fire fighter, emergency medical technician or paramedic is engaged in the performance of his or her duties.

Re: “Chuck Booms Fired From 92.3 The Fan

By the way, it also looks like he was suspended for a day in February this year. So apparently this is not a spur of the moment thing but Booms thinking he is above all others and doesn't have to follow the program.

Re: “Chuck Booms Fired From 92.3 The Fan

Could the reason Booms got fired related to why he got fired from fox in St. Louis? A quote from someone he worked with in St. Louis: "I like Chuck personally. But from what I hear, he is claiming the company shafted him and while those sentiments are understandable, he wasn't exactly a good team guy. Apparently he became a daily problem for management with constant complaining and threats of calling in sick when he didn't have his way. They don't want to deal with that kind of nonsense around here." Could this be why he was "sick" so much. What a cry baby!

Re: “Chuck Booms Fired From 92.3 The Fan

This is really a sign that Karma exists. Booms ranted about Britt McHenry getting fired for talking the way she did to the tow lady, but that was what he did everyday. It was easy to tell that he was a racist and I am shocked that he lasted that long. For all of the people that he called to get fired, I expect there are a number of smiles. I never heard of the guy but he said he was the top comedian for a period of time. Never seemed to make me laugh..........although I am now!

I don't understand why they all take the daughters word over the rest of the family. FAMILY isn't ONE person. This is so disappointing to see happen.....it should not be allowed. PLEASE PRAY for the FAMILY involved....

Re: “Was An 81-Year-Old Wife, Mother and Grandmother Abducted By Her Own Daughter or Rescued From a Bad Situation?

I still can't believe how people could honestly behave like this. Family should be there for one another and not to cause traumatic upset to the ones they love. This is surely upsetting for the family who all they want is to see their mum, grandmum and wife. This is not the way the law should be it's clearly obviously to anyone who was dealing with this can see it's abduction no family member would keep a loved one from seeing their loved one no matter what the circumstances are life is to short let the family have their beloved mum, grandmum and wife back home where they clearly loved.
