So, my question is this,actually a couple....what will happen to the guy who wanted to marry his car? Because they have allowed "gay" marriage (disgusting as it may be), and are working now on plural marriages, will this man be allowed to then marry his car? How about the guy down the street, will he then be allowed to marry his goat? My, my, my what a can of worms the SCOTUS has opened.

LaHood .... Conservative? Yes. Career politician? Yes. Part of the problem? Certainly. I darn near stopped in the Flynn campaign office on 6th Street today with $100.00. I'll have to drop by tomorrow for sure.

The law is on the side of the bad guys. After all it was written by lawyers.

Why is it necessary to keep showing a killer police mug shot? If you need a picture why not show the dead victim, 12-year-old Ray Humphrey Junior. The least we see of this scum the better.

Haha I feel like your giving me one of those "it depends on what your definition of the word is is" defenses. I'll admit this, you got the "not gonna take me down" spirit of a politician caught in a pickle. Unfortunately the integrity of a politician comes with it.

Abandoned baby calls to mind Safe Haven laws

9 months, 4 weeks ago by Jim Dewey

The discovery of a newborn in a dumpster in Jacksonville brings a reminder that parents of newborn children who cannot or will not take care of their infant - do not need to resort to desperate measures to abandon the child.

 

While the laws differ somewhat in each state - Illinois, Iowa and Missouri each have Safe Haven or Infant Abandonment laws on the books. In fact, every state has a law in place to allow an unharmed infant to be relinquished to the proper authorities, no questions asked.

 

In Illinois an infant up to 30 days old can be taken to a hospital - police or fire station or EMS location. Infants up to a year old can be taken to the same locations in Missouri. Iowa law allows infants up to 14 days old to be dropped off at any medical facility.

 

According to the National Safe Haven Alliance "’Baby Safe Haven’ laws or infant abandonment laws were created to remove the potential for prosecution so long as children were given unharmed and given to proper authorities.”
