I searched OB and here. What are thoughts on this? Posted here b/c it's a crime, not about hunting, and dude was a tard for doing this. But, it doesn't bother me. Without weapons I feel like a deer is fair game to take down. He was obviously gonna eat the fricker.

Read an article a while back about how Subway was full of msg and such, even their veggies and bread are tainted. So I got to wondering if Grocery stores like Winn-Dixie, LeBlancs, Ralphs(ones around me I frequent) use fresh ingredients and don't msg-up their daily fresh prepared meals/sammiches/sal...

A black friend of mine posted this on FB last week. I have NEVER heard of this event in American History.
If this is accurate, WTMF is/was wrong with white people? This was 1921 not 1821. Kinda shocking. I know how I feel about it and I'm actually quite ashamed of white folks for this here trage...

This appears to have happened a month ago. But my GF just saw some guys try this unsuccessfully at the SAME Walmart last night.

An advertisement for a security/alarm system company on 102.5 this morning said:

Is this true for the BR area? Did the pitch woman base that on a particular zip code? Did they lump in home burglaries with home invasions? I assume they based that claim on som...

Is this anything new to get excited about? I looked at a map and as usual it makes great sense if they were to upgrade these roads to include toll lanes with overpasses, etc. But not sure it's more than the usual blurb of "BR LOOP" hoopla.

If someone got a DWI in BR and then moved away to another state, what can/will be done by BRPD to bring that person back here to face justice?
Even if not extradited to face judge, will it go on their record if said person applies for jobs around the country?
Does that warrant ever expire?
