"Brown, 44, was arrested on three outstanding warrants for aggravated menacing, misuse of a 911 system and causing false alarms. She was jailed late Wednesday, but no charges had been filed against her related to the coat store chaos pending a mental health evaluation."

It's obvious to me she's not running on all cylinders.  Crazy  This story is so funny.  It's incredible that people would have the nerve to run out of the store with coats they didn't pay for.  Apparently, if someone says they'll pay for your coat and they don't, people still think they can walk out with a coat they didn't pay for. 

BTW, this has happened twice before under similar circumstances:  Two people in different states ran a hoax Craigslist ad saying anyone who showed up at an address could take anything they wanted.  In the first case, the house was in a rural area and people came and cleaned out the house while the owner while still there.  When the owner insisted nothing was being given away, people took things anyway.  When police arrived, they had to chase down people driving away with the owner's possessions.  In the second case, a disgruntled former renter (or relative) ran a Craigslist ad for a vacant house.  Because the owner was not there, people literally took everything including the kitchen sink!

I remember that incident  . And the man was there for crying out loud.  He needed an oozie to protect his home.  Would the greedy have gotten the point then?  Just oozie shots to the legs; should live to remember what greed can get you into.

    I have never seen a President be blamed for so many things that he has NO CONTROL over.  Stimulus checks?  Blame Bush. People feel now that they have a "right" to them.

    As far as the lady goes, she was very wicked and very wild.  I guess she figured may as well go out with a bang or rather I should say riot.

    Shopping frugally does not mean that one cannot afford the "best".  It means that they have different priorities.

    I Agree!.  I have been off for awhile, but when I read some of these posts, I said to myself.  Is this a POLITICAL site????  If so, I DO NOT NEED it.  I am not here to read opinions regarding political party affiliations or the bashing of one party against the other Argue.  Do Democrats or Republicans oppose the lottery.  Anything else.  Political affiliation and bashing is a not too good of a thing.  You never know when a very powerful person in a party you post against, could be the very person that makes sure that "lotteries" ...well, you get my point.  Whew! Idea  Let me find something else about the LOTTERY!

      I'm in total agreement with you--I thought this is a post for lottery players to discuss THE LOTTERY!!! WinkAt least I thought so...anyway I just read awful article and this is the worst lotto story I have ever read since I joined this post and knowing human nature, it certainly won't be the last.

          1. It's not about the ER wait as much as rationing, the fear that if there is 1 dose and 2 dying people, who gets the dose? Like we're doing even now with H1N1 vaccines.

          2. If everyone stops fighting I'll go to Burlington Coat Factory the next time I win the P3 or P4 box (or otherwise) and buy a new coat being I could use one.

          3. I do agree that this stunt would be dangerous and wrong *even if* the person had actually won and wanted to be generous. If someone entered BCF while I was there and said such I would get out of there immediately! Maybe better just to randomly hand out BCF gift certificates and only sparingly at that to not call too much attention.

            Sorry, but in America that kind of thing doesn't happen.  Emergency rooms are required by law to treat anyone who doesn't have health insurance.

            You see, in this country we already have a great health care system in which nobody "dies" (your words) for lack of health insurance.

            In other countries with government-run healthcare, like Canada and England, people DO DIE because they either have to wait so long for their procedures, or else the government says they won't get a life-saving drug because they are too old and "not worth it".

            People who actually take 5 minutes to learn about the system from someone other than a shill for the Democrat party knows what I'm saying is true.

            I have lived in countries where people didn't have to pay for health care so I know the difference.  No one will believe in health care reform until is is them who losing their property and savings.  Emergency room care is catastrophic care.  And for your information, many emergency rooms now charge on the spot.  The last time I went to one, I had to pay 50 dollars BEFORE they would treat me!  I had insurance. The $50.00 was to help pay for all of the others who don't have health care!

            If you know your number is going to hit, have patience and then KILL IT!

            You never know when you will get another hit.

              I believe the question that has to be answered is this: Do we abide by the Constitution or not?

              Our Constitution is the law of the land and the foundation of our republic. If we have to abrogate it every time somebody "feels it's not fair" then it serves no purpose.

              Other countries have different forms of governance and healthcare and we have ours which has served us well for over 200 years.

              It is my personal opinion that people who don't want to accept the constraints of our Constitution should find a country with one more to their liking and go there.

              Patriotic Americans show respect for our Constitution and many of us have taken a solemn oath to preserve, protect and defend it.

              And we will. By any means necessary. Against enemies both foreign AND domestic.

                Let’s talk about your precious Constitution. It once held that certain “People” were only worth 3/5th of an ordinary American (White). That’s not fair, so the people of America amended that part of it so that ALL people would be treated equally. According to you those worth only 3/5th should have kept their mouths shut and accepted the status quo. That’s no country to me, that’s a lie, a sham, and a joke of a Nation supposedly valuing Truth and Justice for all.

                 Oh, and by the way one of those 3/5th of a person rose up to become President of the United States, proving just how great this country is despite the past which many on your side of the issues want to return to.

                  Well said mjwinsmith. Also to anyone who says to leave the country, if you don't like the way it is working you are free to leave as well.

                      You can't stand the Truth can you? What's racist about the truth. The point to note is that the Constitution is not perfect, that's why it gets amended from time time according to the times and to what the PEOPLE want.

                      God Bless America.

                        funny story

                        the issue with free stuff, is more of a major core belief

                        entitlement,  really?

                         

                        people think they have a  entitlement  to a % of the cash i make,

                        i refer to ofc  everyone who votes these people in, congress/obama

                        who then point a gun and say where taking  this much form you! or else

                         

                        the latest entitlement type of people have taken over our govt by their votes

                        putting in people who really think i should have to pay for other people and their needs and their mistakes!

                         

                        what do i mean by mistakes? i tell you

                        i don't buy healthcare reform they talk about, 

                        if someone wants to eat at mcdonalds their whole adult life and trash their body ,

                        not work out,

                        not  make sure their getting all the things their body needs form fruit and other nutrition

                        thats their mistake, they should suffer for it, when they get diseasy  of any kind, they should pay for their own mistakes

                        the day they need someone else to pay their health care bills, it wont be form me

                         

                        ever thing else is a belief i should support others to these people

                         

                        but make no mistake,  right now, people are more forced on getting free stuff then taking care of them selfs,      when it comes to health vs free stuff

                         

                        how many adults are of sound mind and have a great health, by their own hands/mind

                        we have more sick people, then healthy people, know why, cease a really healthy person, does the work for them selfs

                        and the sick people are lazy, or just dumb or something that makes them make countless mistakes towards their health

                         

                        when i need money, or things, i can go out and get it,  by brains or my hands, its no issue to me,

                         

                        here my point

                        about how crazy these people are, lets use  their logic and say:

                         

                        Dental care is a right!

                        Wait a sec, you mean i can eat countless candy, not flossing atfer ever meal

                        kill my teeth, and get it all fixed by your wallet,, SWEET

                          see my point, i just look at all of you entitlement people with a face of,  are you mental?????

                         

                        to others needing  handouts, i have no shame in turning them down,  maybe its just me,

                        but something in my gut kills me inside if i ever have to ask for handouts, and i mean really kills me inside

                        , its just not the kind of person i am

                         

                        its like am at war with  people who demand these things form others ,  govt is a weapon, and their using this weapon with a ruthless intent to harm my wallet and ever other wallet of anyone who supports them selfs, and just wants to be left alone!

                         

                        if i want to help people, i can, its called a charity,

                        and the only charity's i support are kid ones, know why, cease am not a heatless jerk, i know kids are not adults and they cant help them selfs sometimes on ever thing,

                          teach them how to fish, but dont catch the fish for them kind of helping logic :P

                         

                         

                        however if you start a charity that trys to give everyone some kind of health care, you will Fail, why, cease a smart person wont give money to idiots, it wont meet their funding needed

                         

                        hell  i guest i could say the lotto hopes kids also LOL

                        when they use the line no one forces you to live here,

                        so hand over the  money or get out if you don't want to pay our demands

                        am grinning thinking

                         i didn't know i was a born part slave to everyone in the united states when i was born here

                        cease am slave to no one, and whatever i make in life is Mine, not yours

                        my kids/grindkids if i ever have any, wont be paying for your kids/grandkids healthcare cease they eat junkfood all their lifes , etc

                        hell i wish all the dumb entitlement people would die off, save me a lot of energy form defending my self and my wallet form them LOL

                         

                        fed your kids right, teach them right and maybe we would not have a Healthcare issue in the first place

                         

                        am all for charity, but govt is not a charity, 

                        its a evil weapon,    know where my freedoms come form, not form others,  or the govt, they come form my self, i have a a weapon and i use it to defend my self,

                        know why my home is not being looted right now, cease something bad will happen to them if they try

                         

                        the lotto is the prefact charity at its core,  raise money for whatever

                        NO one forces me to buy tickets, i buy them cease I WANT TO

                        i would not need the army, if the people as a whole was allowed to own not just guns, but any weapon on earth,and trust me, this govt would be put in its place if its fear of their lifes is 100x what it is now,    i be like IRS, i got a wmd , do you really want to try and take my money, yup they be put in their place alright.

                         

                        govt not the master,     the people in congress have no power, but what is given them form the people is their power

                        all power comes form the people, i know for a fact, when i was born , others didn't own a part of my future,    so to me,  the people of the united states, dont have a right to my money, nor can they own any part of what i make, onless i give that right over

                         

                        people can give all their money they want to the govt, am not stoping them

                        being the must armed pop in the world, is what makes us as free as are,   learn form history,  armless people get inslaved Ever time, and yes i count any loss of freedom as inslaved

                        if entitlement people had their way, we be helpless sleep , and trust me, form history, i know how entitlement govt ends, in massive debt, and if their using paper money, kiss it goodbye, they will print it to its worthless

                         

                        o wait, we are already in the middle of doing that, great now the money supply it self is going to be destoryed by entitlement people, i just can't get away form these idiots..........

                         

                        i swear the only thing that will protect us form these entitlement people is to get a gun and say  Make me give you free stuff with a gun in their face,

                        as thats the last defence i see having down the road if we keep going down this path our nation is in

                         

                        /end freedom rant

                          Sorry Joshua but I did not read all of your post. But Mcdonald's is not the only reason people get sick. Last time I check a burger did not cause cancer.

                           

                          Don't you think it is a little screwed up then when people get sick, their health insurance decides to drop them? What is the point of having it in the first place?

                           

                          Now if you wanted to tax people who where over weight or smoked cigarettes, I would agree with you.

                              alright, i tell you

                               

                              No i dont

                              health insurance - KEY WORD insurance

                              if your in a car crash, and your the ONE THAT MADE IT HAPPEN, you was at fault , HELL YES i would not cover you

                               

                              same thing for health, if a earthquake happens, you get hurt, i cover your ass for all costs,

                              if  someone  did a hit and run and no one could find the runner, i cover you for all health care costs

                               

                              IF YOU FREAKING SMOKE and get lung cancer., i WILL NOT COVER YOUR ASS,  if you are fat, i will not cover your ass for anything  disease related to food you eat

                               

                              you are what you eat, like it or not, ever thing adds up over time!

                              , am not going to cover your fat ass for anything food related, lifestyle related

                               

                              if you don't want to live a super healthy life, and put the effort into making sure you dont get any PREVENTABLE diseasy's

                              then i sure as hell wont cover your ass if i was a insurance COMPANY,

                              thats why i hate the current laws already on the books,   

                              and what they are wanting to do to healhcare, and you are the perfect  one proving my point

                               

                              what you are in fact saying, you dont want the insurance company not covering you anymore if you made a mistake, o MY GOD, i should not have to pay for my own mistakes!

                               

                              o and yes, must causes of cancer are diet/lifestyle related, I said must,not all

                              if you get a insane amount of UV form the sun and get skin cancer, thats sure lifestyle related also LOL

                              its called wear some uv reflective clothing

                              people don't ever want to  take the blame for stuff they do to them selfs!

                               

                              100s of years ago, people blamed witchcraft on countless stuff

                              ,  100s of years later , people are sure being stupid, 

                                i can point to the countless wars/govts/laws and people getting them self sick to prove it, we are living in the dark ages of human stupid

                               

                               

                              their is a great saying, that bears repeating here

                              You can't fix stupid
