A couple got pictures of their kids developed at Walmart and some retard in the photo department thought it was child porn and reported it to the police and the couple lost custody of their kids for a while and the mom got suspended from her job for a year.

I didn't read in that article about the job suspension, where did you see that? As for what happened, it's unfortunate. It really sucks for all parties, not just the family, because the employee was just following policy and it's a shame it had to escalate into what happened. It's kind of stupid that they're questioning whether it was disclosed that employees would look at the pictures and/or turn in suspicious photographs, because how stupid do you have to be to not realize that? Nevertheless, there should have been a lot more caution and common sense put into the pictures being red flagged. Considering that there were bathroom pictures in the same set, you'd think two and two would be put together. But then again, maybe that's irrelevant; maybe if he didn't at least try to escalate it regardless then he'd get shitcanned.

I saw it on the news. That's where I heard about this thing. I didn't even read the article I posted. On the news it said she got suspended from her teaching job for a year.

SALLISAW, Oklahoma (NBC News Channel) -- An oklahoma woman was arrested for attempting to sell her two young children.

Police say 22-year-old Misty Van Horn used Facebook to contact another woman in Arkansas. They say she offered to sell the woman her two-year-old and 10-month-old children.

Van Horn reportedly asked a $1,000 for the two-year-old, or $4,000 for both kids.

Police say she was trying to raise money to bail her boyfriend out of jail.

The children were taken into state custody.

NYC Jack Russell terrier undergoes surgery to remove $1.11 in pennies he swallowed

 

NEW YORK — A New York City dog has undergone emergency surgery to remove more than 100 pennies from his stomach.


 

The New York Daily News reports (http://nydn.us/X4UR6b) that a Jack Russell terrier named Jack swallowed 111 pennies last week and quickly became ill.

 

The 13-year-old pooch’s owner rushed him to a Manhattan veterinarian for emergency surgery.


 

That’s when dog doctors put Jack under anesthesia and methodically removed all 111 coins. The zinc from the coins could be lethal.


 

The dog’s owner told the newspaper his best friend is back to his normal self, driving him crazy.

That's pretty wild. I think he needed more assistance. Care for 4 children and your wife by yourself? Wow, it's amazing. I'm sure he didn't force-feed her. Sounds like there should've been better medical care and/or physical therapy for her to heal up from that accident, so there may be more than him to blame. Glad he avoided prison for this. Pretty messed up situation either way you spell it out.

I got bit by one of these in SC about 4 years ago and it left a welt the size of a quarter on my arm. We call them zebra mosquitoes, they come from Asia and are invasive and are turning up in other Eastern states. If you think that is bad, just imagine how many other invasive species there are out there. I don't miss the humid summers in the Carolinas, I got eaten alive there by mosquitoes and black flies. I remember I ran on the beach in the outer banks at night one time, bad mistake, I was wondering why there were so many flies around and I woke up the next day and had welts all over my feet and legs. Horrible stuff.

No I dont think they intentially made him look like Obama. Thats just what the actor happens to look like and they mentioned he did other religious based acting roles.

"The show has also come under fire for making good guys white and the bad guys darker shade of skin. But that actually makes sense, because it's hard to appeal to your core demographic if you force them to face the reality that Jesus probably looked more like Bin Laden than a cool hipster white guy coffee shop dude."

:lol:

I've been watching the show myself, and have mixed opinions, but I don't think this is accurate. Yeah, a more accurate portrayal would be full of middle-eastern looking characters, but they seemed to have a large mix of races and didn't seem to take that into account in casting. Yeah Jesus is white (pretty much looks like the cliche long-haired, bearded white Jesus), but the angels that visit Sodom are black and asian. Heck Samson is black, and the main antagonists in his story were white guys.
