I have two rather simple questions for the Authorties
"Police said the dogs were put down and they were considering laying charges.
Local Government Minister Paula Bennett said authorities would look at tightening dog control laws in the wake of the attack."
Considering Charges?? It is clear to anyone with a minimum of common sense that the animals' owner did not have them properly restrained and should face the full weight of the law and be responsible for the child's rehabilitation and additional damages to the family.
The Minister saying that authorities would **look at tightening controls **- is a cop out and shows zero initiative or any concern about what has happened.
In my city we have ordinances about dangerous animals - ie: any large and dangerous dog. Most of these type of animals were bred for aggression and fighting ability, not as cuddly pets for people - they exist to kill or maim and little else

OK - I can see a few matches to my ideal girl - I also like long hair on a girl, and think that Asian women have a nice, even intoxicating scent; but lets get real for a moment. If this is your ideal girl guidelines - get a robot!!
I have told friends of mine that I compare women to Ayumi to get the perfect girl, but this is based on how I "Think" she might be, not on anything that is real. Everyone wants the perfect partner, but let remember that it would get very boring if that partner met every single tag you set for them, there would be no surprises, no mystery, nothing to discover about them.

The man is indeed a true visionary - his concepts could also easily translate to Space Station Freedom with little change - at least once it is finished and can actually create a sustainable gravity well of its own

Sounds pretty open and shut to me - if he has the mental capacity to attempt a robbery and to also successfully hide a weapon then he is more than capable of aiding his own defense. His actions at the execution are pretty clear that he knew what he was doing. There does not appear to be any reasonable justification for this animal's actions.

Come on people - get a grip
Being an American of European decent - I think that they hit the typical Surfer Dude perfectly.
This is a very humorous commercial. Some people just take things too seriously and just need to lighten up.
I say Go ANA!!

Personally I would skip the sedative and make the punishment fit the crime - let him suffer as much as possible while his light is extinguished. His victims and their families were given no consideration by this animal.

Bieber just keeps skating along - yet another case of money buying someone out of trouble. When will celebs learn that they are no better, and in many cases much worse than everyone else. He punk ass should be thrown in a real jail for a month or two to teach him some manners and respect.

Here in the states it is common to file a missing person report on an Adult after 48 hours, but a child - never - as soon as they are noticed missing (regardless of the time) an Amber Alert (Missing child alert) is put out on the news line and every other public media. Why did the parents wait so long to report their little girl as missing. That is just crazy
