He killed someone in a parking space dispute. But police say he just stood his ground.

That grown man tried to pick a fight with a woman in front of her small children, so her boyfriend came over and clobbered him.  I see nothing at all wrong with that.  It was something that needed to happen to that particular guy.  Likely he even wanted it to happen.

 

The mostly intended consequence of "Stand Your Ground" is that once a physical altercation gets underway, it must proceed until one of the participants is dead.  Police like that, there's less paperwork.

I don't see it, and we're super-sensitive to that kind of thing, and we can see edit history.  So which post are you referring to?

McGill's comment essentially INVITES people to justify the 2A position...and THAT devolves to politics.  The reality is that Americans have a RIGHT to protect themselves.  The incident in question occurred in a jurisdiction that ensures this RIGHT is protected and a poster wants to quibble about the exercise of a RIGHT.

And a defense attorney says after the violent shove and contact with the ground, the defendant was dazed, seeing double and in fear of getting his head stomped. 

Competent counsel will ALSO be looking to point the jury towards the move of the hands towards the waistband of the now-deceased.  Thus there is STILL an implied threat which warranted neutralization that was consistent with the law in that jurisdiction.

The forthcoming acquittal will be further egg on the face of Floriduh's prosecutors that insist on taking cases to a jury that have no business being in court except to pander to a particular demographic.

All the DA needs to do is let this trial stay pending until November.

Politics do affect many aspects of our lives, and it is a shame that the subject cannot be discussed in a civil manner on this board. However, we found through difficult experience, that it is impossible. We made a decision at that point not to allow political discussions on CB.

We will not revisit that decision, as I have said numerous times. Those of you who joined after that debacle will not likely understand, since we have put all those posts in an archived forum, and they are not accessible to the general membership. We have no plans to make those posts available in the future. You will just have to accept what we say. We tried it, it didn't work.CB enjoys a strong sense of community. The "family" atmosphere, the feeling that one's thoughts and feelings will be accepted without judgment, is central to our success. The political discussions bring out the opposite in those individuals who feel a need to convert others to their political views, and those who feel a need to fight back against such individuals.

As a result, CB has not only adopted a "politics neutral" stance, we have established a standing rule that any subject which is political in nature, or leads to a politically oriented discussion, cannot be discussed here. That is why these threads will be closed, and the participants redirected.

In some cases you may see a thread closed when it borders on political topics, but has not yet taken a turn in that direction. That's because, in our experience, we know it will take that turn in the near future. Occasionally, some members feel a need to test the boundaries (a psychological phenomenon well-known in internet communities), by "baiting" other members into a political discussion. Others innocently post a subject they feel warrants discussion, and inadvertently open Pandora's box. We don't try to decide which is which, we just close the threads. It is not personal.

If we had our way, we would be able to debate the subject sensibly. Occasionally, someone brings up the question of the owner's political views. We owners do not all agree on politics. It is not an issue that divides us, however. Our focus here is the board, and the welfare of the board, not our political views.

We do not get into debating the merits of a particular thread, if we did, we would be putting ourselves in a very difficult position, and we have more important things to do. So, if your thread gets closed, there is no point in arguing about it. We've already been there and we're not going back.

This rule, and the other hard-and-fast rules we have established over time on CB, have proved to be a strong basis for our success. We will always maintain the sense of community and our emphasis on the things we have in common, rather than the things that divide us.

This topic is now closed.

      In 2016 and parts of 2017, I've had a few credit cards go into collections. 
      1. Credit Card from a bank is about $20,000.00
      2. Credit Card from a store is about $5000.00
      3. Credit Card from a bank is about $5000.00
      4. Credit Card from a bank is about $3000.00
       
      At the time I was not working and did not know about negotiating/settling . 
       
      I am now working, making about a small $33K a year.
       
      Should I pay off this debt? Do I call the collection agency's and pay it off?  What's the best route to take?

      I'm at a 802 credit score. I've never been in collections and while I have debt, it is all student loan debt that I am paying. I've never had to help someone with bad credit before. We are both in our late 20's. Her score is around a 630 transunion and 700 equifax.
       
      I finally got a new job and moved my fiancee from Texas to NY. We are interested in getting married and getting a house/moving for her degree in 1 to 3 years. She does have some credit problems that we would like to take care of. She's never had anyone tell her how to handle credit or anything, so she is oblivious to it all. She has medical collections because her mother told her that she paid her medical bills at the time, but she actually did not, and she took her at good faith for this. I am helping her learn but it takes time.
       
      She has about 1100 to 1700 total in collections. Trans-union and Equifax somewhat show the same thing just Equifax show's t-mobile and transunion does not. All of her collections other than T-Mobile are medical based. She has 7 collections total, with phoenix financial having 3 of them all from the same date. She also has a charged off card not showing in collections.
       
      Paying them off isn't a issue as she has more then enough to pay them all in full, but I want to get everything I can off of her account. All of these collections are from texas prior to her move here in NY. The amounts I posted below are not the exact amounts but close.
       
      First Electronic Bank - 600$ - Closed End of 2014 (5 Yrs Old) - Charged off as bad debt, profit and loss write-off -  (Not showing in collections, only under closed accounts)
      Wakefield & Associates - $600 - Opened End of 2015
      Merch & Prof CollBur - $15 Opened End of 2015
      Creditors Bureau USA - $230 - Opened Mid 2018 - Consumer disputes this account information, meets FCRA requirements (She told me she's never disputed anything)
      Pheonix Financial Serv - $124+130+91 - Opened Mid 2019 
      Convergent Outsourcing - $367 OC =  T-MOBILE Opened - Mid 2019
       
      I'm reading through all the HIPPA stuff on this forum but it's a lot to take in at once, any advice for us? I want to keep communication on the phone at the minimum with any CRA.

      Sometimes I just don't understand texting on the phone.   Used to be a big Blackberry fan, but switched to Android.   Now use Samsung devices.  Samsung has their texting app, and my carrier Verizon has their version of the app that I prefer. (it shows me "sent" and delivered").  Why are their so many other texting apps?  The other day my niece sent me a group text from an app called GroupMe.  It came thru on my regular app, but I had to download the GroupMe app.   I also downloaded WhatsApp, but soon as I found out they were part of Facebook, I deleted my account.    What is the point or advantage of "other texting apps since you can send group texts with the apps already on the phone or from the carrier?   This mystifies me logically.
       
      Oh, and BTW, I ain't changing to apple.

      This isn't technically about auto finance, though it's related. I am going to look at a car this afternoon, and I haven't had a chance to get mine cleaned up or detailed. Will that make a difference as to the trade in value?
