    What? Again with Ardmore? How DARE KXII publish and air this kind of poor journalism. Don't they have something better to do than report the news?

    Ardmore?.....again? no surprise there! Keep in mind that these are the kind of people that our current government wants to throw more freebies and government benefits to. Drug test them you say? Nope, can't do that either. Eric Holder and Obama feel that's a violation of their rights. we sure don't want to violate these poor people, do we?

        I woudl expect that comment from a criminal-supporting liberal. You may not be so worried about his rigths when he pushes meth on YOUR kids. Then again, you don't seem like the type who would care!

          I think the man has the right to a trial or face a judge. If found guilty, I believe he has the right to appeal. Beyond that, what special rights do you think liberals give criminals? The right to be caught with blood on your hands and knife in hand, dead body at your feet, and be let go with a warning? Who in the hell supports this kind of anarchy? You think liberals don't have families too? Moron.

      by Laughing mildly on Apr 24, 2012 at 05:58 PM in reply to amazes me the opportunities you guys take to try and link Obama to just about any criminal in the news! Appears to me this is the kind of guy that the SALVATION ARMY likes to support! Last I checked, they are a private Christian Charity...non-profit and pay NO taxes. I really don't see how you can pull the government into this man's criminal life, but by God you're gonna try aren't you! let me guess...if Rmoney wins, this man's addiction will go away correct? Desperate people won't seek the Salvation Army anymore? Life get so much better as we all quietly await the spending habits of the countries wealthy elite when they get windfall tax breaks? What millionaire did you pick out to get trickled down upon? One of the Koch brothers?!

      What a bunch of nonsense. "These kind of people" are not getting any more "freebies" under Obama than they got under Bush.

        Obviously he wasn't getting ANY government support and was relying on the Salvation Army, not Obama. I say shut down Salvation Armies everywhere...because if we are NOT going to hold this man accountable for his OWN actions, and instead blame Obama, then wouldn't the people who's roof he was living under be even MORE responsible?! Just saying, if we are looking to point fingers at someone other than the criinals themselves right?

      I agree that those being primarily supported by government unemployment benefits should be drug-tested. How big of an 'inconvenience' is it really for someone receiving these benefits to be tested? If there is nothing to hide and this money is ACTUALLY going towards family support and nothing illegal, why complain or try to resist it? Are you not willing to make a (very) small sacrifice in order to support yourself? Unemployment checks are a PRIVILEGE and should be treated that way.

        "You shouldn't mind an invasion of privacy if you have nothing to hide." The slogan of Fascist states since man fell out of the trees. And unemployment check are most definitely not a privilege. Unemployment insurance premiums are taken out of your paycheck every time you get paid while you are working to cover you in those times while you are not working. You are confusing Insurance benefits with welfare.

        Yea, and you shouldn't mind to submit to a drug test every time you leave your house to walk down a street that is paid for by public funds. Hey, why not have the government bug your house and phone? Afterall, you aren't doing anything wrong, and besides, how much trouble would that be. Look, the subject of this story was arrested, and will likely be prosecuted. Why try to turn this story into some crusade involving unemployment checks? The interesting thing about this drug testing stuff is that an extremely small number test positive. That fact not only blows away your assumptions, it also ends up costing the taxpayer even more. Of course, that would just give you and your ilk something else to whine about.
