sooner or later we are going to have to shoot these people....
you are not obligated to report anything that occurred as a minor... nor are you required to report any crime for which you were tried and found not guilty. For both of these reasons, neither was the university allowed to know about it, but neither was he obligated to tell them. Both of these rules, I agree with, even if I don't believe in not-guilty by reason of insanity. But I don't believe that anyone has provided any information to support the notion that this man was not / is not qualified (as much as anyone can be qualified) to teach psychology at the college level.
I'm going to have to support the school on this one. I too believe in redemption and 2nd chances. Paul, a murderer, was used by God to proclaim the Gospel "to the ends of the earth" and so, to, a formerly demonized and/or insane youth can repent and contribute. Now, if this guy is a flaming liberal.... well, then. My question to him is, "Do YOU believe in redemption?" absent information that this guy is STILL a looney and dangerous, you should back off!
as much as I have problems with this Administration, I don't see a problem with Mr. Holder's answer. Every police officer in the country has the same authority under the same criterion described by Mr. Holder.

consciousness of an unborn child. The high value placed on unborn human life in the Bible is consistent with the Mosaic law regarding negligent miscarriage (Exod. 21:22–25). This law can be compared to similar statutes in the Code of Hammurabi (nos. 209–214) in which the punishment exacted for acts of negligence that resulted in a woman’s miscarriage was dependent on the legal or social status of the mother, not the personhood (or supposed lack thereof) of her unborn child. Middle Assyrian law no. 53 (12th century B.C.) made a self-induced miscarriage (an abortion) a capital offense. Paul H. Wright, "Abortion", in Holman Illustrated Bible Dictionary, ed.

The Bible places a high value on all human life, including that of the unborn. Biblical teaching declares that life is a sacred, God-given gift (Gen. 1:26–27; 2:7; Deut. 30:15–19; Job 1:21; Ps. 8:5; 1 Cor. 15:26), especially the life of children (Ps. 127:3–5; Luke 18:15–16), and condemns those who take it away (Exod. 20:13; 2 Kings 1:13; Amos 1:13–14). The development of unborn life is controlled by God (Job 31:15; Ps. 139:13–16; Eccles. 11:5; Isa. 44:2; 46:3; 49:5; Jer. 1:5; Luke 1:15; Gal. 1:15). The personhood of the fetus is clearly taught in Exod. 21:22 where the unborn is called a “child” (yeled) rather than a “fetus” (nephel or golem). Hos. 9:11 implies that life begins at conception, while Luke 1:41, 44 recognizes the consciousne

agitator, you are theologically in error. Jesus did not abolish the Mosaic (moral) law. He fulfilled it (Obeyed it on our behalf). Every Old Testament moral law applies to every human being everywhere. There are "situational" laws given in the OT. These are the laws of equity and they are for inferring from principle. You shall not murder is absolute. You are not allowed to kill an innocent person. But G
