Re: “Local Media Pros Som and Krystin Lisaius Indicted on Drug-Related Child Abuse Charges

Re: To all those who replied.

It is shocking that you believe they deserve "leniency because of the statis in our society". "Smarter, bigger, bolder, he is a reporter... Just a job. Not a doctor that saves lives everyday. Not a solider that risks their lives to save ours. Not a teacher that educates our children. Not a child welfare worker that protects the interest of children. Bigger well maybe if you are looking at arrogence. Bolder yes, you are right, arrogence again.. Now for smarter, I think most people think they are least smart people at this point. They should not be treated any different than anyone else in this situation. If the norm is jail time well then jail time it should be...
You say cocaine does not belong in the wrong hands-well let see "wrong hands" how about nobody's hands it is illegal. It seems to many excuses are being made for adults who CLEARLY know better. There comes a time when you need to grow up and take responsibility for you actions. Adults can make their own decisions BUT when you harm a child action has to be taken. It is very selfish to not put an infants needs ahead of your own.
In a nutshell they consumed illegal drugs, passed them to an infant and need to face the consequences the same as anyone else would. They DO NOT deserve special treatment.

Re: “Winners and Losers in the Classrooms First Initiative Council Proposals

And I think it is important to understand that charter schools being the big winners means corporations are the big winners.
In the beginning of the charter school movement in Arizona a few caring people could put together a charter school for the purpose of rescuing kids who had been discarded and given up on by public district schools. Now the rules have changed and a whole lot of money is now required to start a charter school; a rule change making charters corporate entities, some whose stock is traded on Wall Street.
Charter schools should no longer be seen as public schools, because they are not. Therefore charter schools should not receive public money.

Re: “Ed Superintendent Douglas Talking in Tucson Tuesday, Wednesday

The fact is Douglas is a basically a non-entity when it comes to education policy in Arizona. Goldwater/ALEC, run the Governor's office and the legislative majority, and they make education policy, generate lawsuits, and ignore her. She will say a few reasonable things, and focus, as usual, on how we killed common core, by rearranging a few chairs on the deck of the Titanic (most remain the same) , renaming it and voila, OUR standards. What Arizona really needs is to ABOLISH all those tax credits, which drain funds away from public schools, and cap and actually reduce the number of charter schools, and make them accountable. The legislature is hot on accountability for public schools, but not charters or private schools receiving public money. The legislature and the Gov., are hot on regulatory reform (which really means giving away the farm) except for public schools. Douglas is ignored in all this policy making. If she accidentally says something useful, the rest of the State doesn't care.

Re: “Attorney General Brnovich Hopes Supreme Court's Tie in Immigration Lawsuit Will Help In-State Tuition Fight Against DREAMers

While I sympathize, there should be no compromise on illegal immigration until real enforcement is passed and legal immigration is also reduced. Once that is done, DREAMers should be given permanent work permits and eventually citizenship. Until then, no rights other than the right to swift and humane deportation should be given to any illegal alien.
Remember each dollar of subsidized in-state tuition used to educate illegal aliens takes one dollar away from the available money to educate our children.

Re: “Local Media Pros Som and Krystin Lisaius Indicted on Drug-Related Child Abuse Charges

Treated unfairly how? They shouldnt be using cocaine period. They definitely shouldn't be using cocaine while caring for a child. The mother definitely should not breastfeed when using cocaine. Surely she must know that cocaine takes longer than 12 hours to metabolize through the body, if it only took 12 hours, no one would ever fail drug tests. It doesnt matter what they did in the community, they put their child at risk by using drugs and then at further risk by not allowing the child to be drug tested, they were more worried about getting in trouble than getting immediate appropriate medical care for their child. I hope this child doesnt have any lasting effects from moms drug use.

The moral of the story is to stay out of Phoenix, a high cost, non-supportive environment.

Re: “Customs and Border Protection Wants to Collect Foreign Travelers' Social Media Info

Nice idea, but... The FBI was criticized for not checking some of the Orlando Muslim terrorist's social media sites. But I assume that the bad guys will get a bit smarter about what they admit to on social media ( this system counts on self reporting). The Caliphite will instruct its bombers-to-be to post a " I love Hillary" message on Facebook while putting their real message in some sort of dark site read by fellow killers. The real answer seems to be infiltrating the mosques where these thugs congregate . Read the stories about the trial of the " Minnesota Men" ...Somalis from the Twin Cities who wanted to go to The Islamic State and kill Americans. All the planning was done at a St Paul mosque. Luckily for us, their next meeting place is Federal Prison.

To all those who replied:

Look, essentially what it comes down to is the fact that they are smarter, bigger, bolder, and more charitable than most of the small people who are posting on this page. It doesn't excuse their genuine mistake. But because of their status in our society, they should be afforded leniency both when it comes to the judicial system and especially in terms of public perception. While we all agree cocaine does not belong in the wrong hands, Som and Krystin were far from underprivileged.

I know them too! I would agree; what have they given to the community??? I believe the "mom" has a previous felony on her record and the "father" used cocaine WAY MORE OFTEN than every "six weeks" as he reported! If you are stellar parents you would've gotten your baby (that you tried so hard to have) treatment at the FIRST hospital NOT the THIRD!!! It's absolutely sickening!!!

Re: “Winners and Losers in the Classrooms First Initiative Council Proposals

Why would you try to stop it? This is the best thing that could happen to public education. Downsize it to a manageable size and start to set higher goals. Raise teacher pay and encourage the parents to get involved. You can compete with private schools. You're not as awful as you think you are.
