And no matter what you say, it is not an act of terrorism. It was robbery. Plain and simple. And yeah if they find her she will maybe be in trouble.
Thank you for showing that you are a complete bitch! I posted ONE time and never said I have to always be right. Your stuck up snotty attitude says a lot about you. Amd YES it matters to you. If it didn't you wouldn't have taken the time to not only reply to me but to do so in such a snotty put somebody else down tone.
LOL..Thanks for the compliment.

Well it was Miranda Ellison Shropshire thats not a surprise. It showed her face all over the news this morning. Shame on her she needs to grow up and be a mother to her children. Guess she'll have plenty of time to think about her wrong decisions now. People just dont realize how much their selfishness & greed cause everyone else problems. The people she has hurt are her children,family & the employes at Town&Country. So sad. I pray she opens her eyes,I pray for her family & I pray for the employes.

Nothing will change. She will go to court today or whenever and they will make her go to a daily drug rehab class....she will go for a few days & then get tired of getting out if bed early &I just not show up anymore and that will be that until she gets arrested a week or two later, then repeat.......
suspects??

I suspected her, and I feel so sorry for her children. I've done my share of partying, but when the babies came they came first in my life! How could u not consider their feelings? Frank is right. Some people would be under the jail, but the worst ones always come up smelling like a rose.

A person engages in domestic terrorism if they do an act ""dangerous to human life"" that is a violation of the criminal laws of a state or the United States, if the act appears to be intended to:(i) intimidate or coerce a civilian population

It is not a terrorist act. She had no intention of blowing anything up nor did she have any way to blow anything up. She just wanted some pills.
she threatened it and the people there had no way ok knowing what she could or would do..... Hence a terrorist act

If that was my daughter I would hope they would put her under the jail!!!! I love my daughter but I wouldn't defend her if she robbed someone and threatened someones life!!!

[QUOTE who="really?"]<qu oted text>
What makes it a Terrorist attack is the fact that she threatened w a bomb. Not a gun or knife or etc... Bomb makes it terrorist, even if she didnt have one on her. Its happened b4. Look it up![/QUOTE]

She didn't threaten with a bomb. She made no mention of a bomb. She said "we will blow up" . But did not say she was going to blow up the drug store or that she had a bomb. Not enough to say she threatened with a bomb. Don't believe me? Hide and watch and see how it turns out.

The "police" car is not an actual police car. Its was purchased by the owner of the pharmacy at an auction & he jut parks it there to deter robberies.
I wondered why the PD left it sitting there all the time, lol. And that's stupid because it has been sitting there for 2 years and everyone knows its just an empty car. And it doesn't seem to deter much huh.

<quoted text> what the hell...how do you know how many pills they get if your not getting them to & yes people do get tired of the pill heads....even the pharmacy workers are sick of pill heads running to ER to get 5 hydros & 5 muscle relaxers every 2 days just because Tenncare will allow them to go that often...maybe if they had a co pay at the ER they wouldnt go as often!!!!!
It's easy to know. Most get a 3 month supply at a time and that is 120 pills. Yes, I know this is fact. No I'm not on pills or getting pills. Just clearing that up because since I have knowledge will accuse me of being a pillhead. People like you are just as bad as the pillheads. You are both foolish.

And the doctors should not give them hydros every few days in the ER. Tell them to toughen up and deal with some pain and send them out the door.

Then EVERY robbery would be an act of terrorism. But it isn't. It's just called robbery.
