if you were selling Bibles rather than pot, you would attract a different caliber of customers-don't ya think? and if a grown man can get stoned on a couple HITS then a baby ought to get pretty high on second hand smoke.

I'M JUST WONDERING IF THE BULLETS MATCHED IN ALL THREE INCIDENTS! IF THAT IS TRUE THEN THERE IS A REAL SERIOUS PROBLEM FOR THE POLICE, PERHAPS A THRILL KILLER? TIME WILL TELL.

In a phone interview Monday, Richardson said police had no right to search his home. He said he feels victimized twice: by the shooter and Akron police.

''I had stuff in the house that I shouldn't have,'' he said.''But, basically, I'm the victim here. They took my baby and searched my house without permission. I feel like I'm being [expletive deleted] on by the system.''

Awwww...poor thing - you feel victimized - what about your child. You're a blooming idiot!

Well, the couple was only multi-tasking. You change the baby....check the light, and make sure the pot plant is growing OK. What's wrong with that???

Hey Marco Gunnerville aren't you proud of your boys in the hood. Of course if the the police had to shoot one of shooters they would be wrong wouldn't they.

I hate this ghetto $hi+, but the only thing that gets me more is when authorities abuse their power. They didn't need to search his home. Sometimes Akron police aren't any better than the thugs they're after here.

Plain view doctrine is an exception to a warrant. So is consent. By making the police report, they probably invited the police into their home and left the pot laying around in plain view. Now that's just stupid. They shouldn't be complaining about it...actually, they probably shouldn't even be having kids, god knows that we don't need any more stupid folks on this planet.

Word to the wise - if you're going to do something illegal, put your stuff away before inviting the cops in.

The court will determine whether under the circumstances police entry into the house was reasonable. This was not a parking violation. There were several shots fired in the direction of a house and a baby inside.

Figure as long as the h00dies and Crackronites shoot each other, the Southside storekeepers can save their ammo.

Good that the authorities removed the baby from such a volatile environment. Just adds to my stand for abortion... abort brainless breeders, not the innocent child.

Proud of your city, Sponge Don?

Bible readers tend to like dropping bombs on people more than shooting them.
