Given the Teacher Arrested thread running, I had to drop this story on the OT. Spoke to a friend who teaches at one of the EBR schools yesterday and was told this. Not giving specific details to protect their identity.
A kid was arrested for being in possession of a quantity of Marijuana. They...

What was the first thing you ever saw on the internet? Can you remember?
I was a kid and with my dad at his friend's house. This guy was a rich business owner and always had the latest and greatest gadget. It was an old-school computer with a dial-up connection. I think it was the type of modem ...

I couldn't have made a better video for the OT. This CNN video has Nancy Grace arguing with a conservative guest about George Z and his possession of firearms. If you didn't hate her before, watch this and you will.

So I know this was covered a thousand times during the football season but those all seemed to be on-campus incidents. I am interested to hear from someone in BATON ROUGE who has dealt with an off-campus MIP. What is the deal?

I found this one pretty funny as it sounds like Bieber had a hissy fit. That being said, the "bodyguard" sounds like a PoS IMO for suing. If attacked by Bieber, the choices should be A. Slap him down like a bitch B. Take the abuse as part of the job C. Quit the job and move on.

Since I have been previously slapped down by the Admins for asking "Is it OK to say Ni**** if I am singing?" I found the following interesting. I figured my fellow OT'ers, always on the cutting edge, should be out in front of this since TPOS is one of our most loved refrains.

This will be so much better here on the OT. Not that I could give two rats asses about this turd, his hypocrisy gives me a chuckle. It's easy to be anti-gun when you have a bunch of armed to the teeth bodyguards I guess. Didn't realize he was such a Beta though.

I know it is common practice to charge people with every crime under the sun when arrested in order to drive up the bond amount but this takes the cake. Not that this dude doesn't need to be locked up but damn.
An officer tried to convince Dillon to come outside. As the officer approached the do...

Can't believe they had the gall to wade in on this one. BRPD doesn't patrol the area now and wouldn't patrol it if incorporated as St. George yet they use the argument that less money for BRPD means criminals will spill into the new city. Maybe they should ask Livingston and Ascension residents for ...
