Answer to yesterday’s puzzle: I am aware that a philosopher’s ideas are not subject to the judgment of ordinary persons, because it is his endeavour to seek the truth in all things, to the extent permitted to human reason by God.
HB 492 Gives Victims Say In Parole — The State House has passed legislation to give Pennsylvania crime victims a say during the parole process of an inmate, reports State Rep. Jim Cox (R-129)
House Bill 492 would allow a victim or victim representative to appear personally before the Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole and provide testimony in connection with an inmate’s application for parole. The bill would make it clear that the decision for victims or their representatives to appear and be heard by the Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole is up to them, not the board. Additionally, if victims or their representatives so choose, they would be permitted to appear by any electronic means made available by the board, such as video conference.
House Bill 492 was inspired by a case in the Philadelphia area in which a convicted murderer was granted parole before completing his maximum sentence without input from the victim’s family. The decision was later reversed.

Philadlephia-based, Obama-supporting Comcast has banned advertising by gun and ammunition sellers.
In a totally unrelated issue, the cable giant will be airing Scarface with Al Pacino at 11 this morning, March 23. Remember Tony Montana can have a grenade launcher. He’s a criminal.
Free plug of the day, check out Bob’s Little Sports Shop in Glassboro, N.J.. The man’s a poet unlike the gangster lovers at Comcast.

Dog License Awareness Month — March has been designated as “Dog License Awareness Month” in the Commonwealth, says State Rep. Jim Cox (R-129). As part of the observance, the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture is sponsoring a poster contest for students in first through sixth grades, calling on them to create a poster about the importance of dog licensing.
The grand prize winner will receive a $20 cash prize and his or her poster will be featured on the cover of the 2014 Dog Law Enforcement Office Coloring Book. The deadline for submitting a poster is April 30.
State law requires all dogs three months and older to be licensed each year. Owners who fail to license their dogs could face a fine of up to $300 for each unlicensed animal. An annual dog license costs $8.45 and a lifetime license is $51.45. If the animal is spayed or neutered, the annual fee is $6.45 and the lifetime license is $31.45. Discounts are available to older adults and people with disabilities.
Dog licenses can be purchased from a county treasurer or another licensing agent, including retail stores and veterinarian offices. They can also be purchased online, in some cases.
For more information on Pennsylvania’s dog licensing law or the poster contest, the deadline for which is April 30, please visit www.licenseyourdogPA.com.

Tahmir Craig Case Black Eye For Whelan — Delaware County District Attorney Jack Whelan announced in a press conference yesterday, March 20, that he was dropping the case against Tahmir Craig whom he had charged with first degree murder for the May 28 killing of Devon Williams in Chester.
It turns out that Craig had a strong alibi and that he was six-inches too short to have been the shooter who was captured on video.
Craig had spent the last 10 months in the county lockup.
Whelan appears to be expecting some pats on the back for, well, deciding against trying to send this young man — Craig is 23 — to the execution gurney.
“As prosecutors in the administration of justice, we have an absolute
duty to exhaust all resources in our efforts to pursue the truth,”
The pats on the back are not going to come from here.
Craig was arrested after tips came to police that the shooter was named “Tahmir”. Police checked a police data base and Craig’s name came up. They thought his picture sorta looked like the one on the video, and witnesses picked him out of a photo array.
Bingo! Case solved!
You would think, though, that due diligence by trained professionals would involve checking alibis and determining heights before filing charges, and that a private attorney would not need to be hired to insist on these rather basic things being done before one tries to send a young man to his death and requires him to spend nearly a year in prison.
You know the real killer is still out there, right, Jack?

Serial killers are known for keeping trophies of their crimes. Reader Tom C notes that abortionist Kermit Gosnell, who is now facing trial for managing to commit deeds that even this nation’s pro-abortion establishment feels crosses the line, also has that tendency. Here, the Philadelphia Inquirer expresses puzzlement as to why he kept jars of the preserved feet of the unborn children.
Answer for the clueless: It was because he is a cold-blooded sociopath and no damn different than a serial killer.
