Perhaps she wasn't a fan and that's why they were shutting it down in advance?
Really the story seems practical all around. Kid got asked not to do it, did it anyway, and accepted a punishment.
But I must ask - why was miss America being of Indian descent mentioned in the article???...

id guess that knocks outkast off the bill - two rap headliners would be surprising.
other rumors? killers, arcade fire, foo fighters, jack white, beck, tom petty have all seemed to get a lot of mentions for other headlining spots. hoping no skrillex.

Yes. He should be only marked with a conviction at this point. Would you support a judges ability to suspend a sentence to an arbitrary time of their choosing? There is no excuse for him to not be done with this over a decade later (and his being a good guy means nothing in that opinion).
| O-T Lounge|| re: Armed robber was never told to report to prison - NoSaint on 4/17/14 at 7:30 pm|
A lot of people seem to want to split the difference and do punishments outside jail or with minimal time - other than "neither side makes me feel good" is there a good reason?
It's still blowing my mind that there's no cutoff on the time between sentencing and jail.... I know convicted criminal...
