Super 8 owner who stabbed his wife gets probation; family's religion played role in judge's decision

I always thought that a sentence was supposed to be based on the act the defendant committed not the defendants religion. Granted, we have a strange legal system!

Man sentenced to 8 years for 2014 throat-slashing at Lawrence shelter

This person is from KCMO and has a cross on his face. Probably a gang banger who needs and deserves to go to prison. BTW...why does the Lawrence Community Shelter allow these individuals to work unsupervised and have access to items that could be used as weapons? I think the Lawrence Community Shelter bare some responsibility for what happened to the who almost killed by this person. In fact, maybe a lawsuit is in in order in a case such as this.

6-year-old Lawrence boy shoots self in foot while playing with gun, police say

This has absolutely nothing to do with our president Mr. Barack Obama! Your disrespect for our president is very insulting not to mention disgusting. What it has to do with is irresponsible gun owners. Period!

Lawrence Police Department to launch campaign against impaired drivers

Personally speaking, I don't believe that the public should have to pay the police to do something they should already be doing. This just goes to show that the Kansas Department of Motor Vehicles and the Kansas Department of Revenue who are the ones who supply the funding for these should have their budgets cut. That money could be used for better things like helping poor people. Avoiding a DUI really is not that hard to do. Most of time when they have the saturation patrols, that are from 10:30 PM until 2:00 AM. Just don't and drive between these hours.

I think it is very sad that these poor children had to have parents such as these people!

About 15,000 Douglas County voters to have new polling places

Yes, but it is hard to vote at a place that is never open. Personally speaking, I believe that Theatre Lawrence was a super poor choice for a voting location. Sure, they went along with it so they could get the money for being a location for voting. I live in the nearby area and I believe that I should be allowed to vote at another location. Maybe it is time to stop supporting Theatre Lawrence completely. Do not go to their plays, operas, or whatever!

Don't ask me how someone like Brownback is able to become governor. Somtimes you have to remember though, this is Kansas.

100 years ago: With National Guard called away, Lawrence plans to start rifle club

I'd love to see Lawrence finally have a rifle club. My question is simply why can't we also have a handgun club.
