Re: “Cleveland Puppy Mill Operators Plead Guilty to Animal Neglect, Cruelty

I wish humans who abuse animals were sentenced to experience the same conditions.

Many, many thanks to everyone involved in bringing these people to justice. Shame on the judge for failing to sentence them appropriately.

Re: “Michigan GOP Official Who Called for "Another Kent State" After Student Protests in Berkeley Resigns

Used to be we could dismiss these remarks as insensitive hyperbole, but now?

Will Trump order American troops to shoot to kill American protesters?

Without question. And unlike Nixon, he will BOAST about it.

Re: “Amanda Berry Joins Fox 8 News to Help with New Missing Persons Segment

@Kathy...yeah, let's step it up for missing persons, but the way to do this is by demanding the CPD actively investigate their cases.

Not to turn the victims into sideshow performers.

Re: “Amanda Berry Joins Fox 8 News to Help with New Missing Persons Segment

Only a monster would wish harm to any of Castro's victims. It is possible for reasonable people to perceive harm in publicly exploiting Ms. Berry.

Seems pretty self-evident to me that allowing these women privacy is essential to their well-being, so I condemn a major media outlet persuading Ms. Berry to undermine her own best interests in the race for profits.

Re: “Amanda Berry Joins Fox 8 News to Help with New Missing Persons Segment

Natalie Holloway's mother has a missing person tv series. John Walsh became a celebrity spokesmodel on America's Most Wanted because his 6 year old son was kidnapped and murdered. Etc.

These people are notorious victims of especially infamous crimes, and they are popular because of the public's appetite for voyeurism cannot be satisfied. Is it morally reprehensible? Yeah.....usually. These "famous victims" rarely choose these roles freely and with full appreciation for the permanent loss of dignity and privacy they entail.

I am not best pleased to hear this news, and I worry about whether it best serves the interests of Ms. Berry and her child to keep her in the public eye.

It's not hard to imagine the Fox 8 management could care less, as long as they make money off her continuing exploitation.

Re: “City Agrees to $2.25-Million Settlement with Family of Tanisha Anderson

This family watched the cops kill their mentally ill daughter, and were helpless to protect her. There isn't enough money on the planet to compensate for this horrific event.

$16 million in wrongful death settlements paid, but no murdering cops in prison. How can this possibly be justice?

Re: “Darrell Scott's Cleveland Heights Church Backed Out of the Funeral for 14-Year-Old Alianna DeFreeze

I wonder if the real problem is the pastor is a Trump supporter, and this funeral will not "strike the right tone"?
