    http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/man-who-killed-montgomery-artist-gets-life-sentence/2011/10/13/gIQApaaZiL_story.html

    FEELING/OPINION:The victim Azin Naimi was a generous and good woman,she helped the people who's helpless.The murderer Williams said he killed Naimi because he took drugs,but I don't think that taking drugs was responsible for his crime.Just as the judge said,after had killed Naimi,Williams cleaned the scene carefully,which shows that he was sober and he was not confused by drugs.
    And it seems that Naimi's families hate Williams a lot.Naimi's mother thought the death penalty is not enough to make Williams experience the pain they suffered,and Williams should live to suffer more for what he had done.

    FAIR OR NOT:I think it's fair,Williams committed a crime and he should be punished.It places guilt on the criminal.

    Norwegian authorities say the 32-year-old gunman who confessed to killing 69 people last month on a lake island.
    The 32-year-old has also admitted to setting off a bomb outside government offices in Oslo earlier the same day, killing eight people.
    He admitted the killings ,but denied criminal responsibility. because he believes the massacre was needed to save Norway and Europe from the influx of Muslims, and to punish politicians for embracing multiculturalism.
    In my opinion ,it is not fair. he killed the innocent people . These people were sacrificed for his hatred and hotheaded.If he has discontment and suggestions ,he should deal with it in the right way ,instead of killing people .People are innocent .They have no responsibilities to sacrifice theur lives. The government should deter this kind of action.They should protect their people and give them a safe living evironment .

    OPINION:A new scheme to encourage disabled victims of hate crime to come forward is being piloted in Blaackpool.Tt's said if the scheme successful,will be expended across Lancashire.As we all know,a lot of disable people just accept abuse but they shouldn't have to .Under the scheme,victims can reportincidents at the resort'centre for independent living which is run by Disability First.I think just because the disabled have no effective ability to protest themeselves,so they are easy to suffer from infringement. However,runing the scheme to protect them,make them to speak up.
    FAIR/NOT:It's fair.By the scheme,the disabled will not keep silence.
    DETERED/GLORIFIED:The article is detered the crime.Nobady can be invade the disabled wantonly.

    FEELING/OPINION:The 47-year-old is charged with nine murders and dozens of other crimes attributed to the so-called Baseline Killer, including rape and child molestation .Goudeau, who grew up in Phoenix.He is a predator with a desire for power. He controls not only his victims but his crime scenes."

    I think this crime and person is very cruel.He do a lot of bad things:rape,child molestation,killing people.This bad guys should be kill.


    FAIR OR NOT:I think it's fair.The man who kill people shoud be punished.

    Before reading this new, I am still thinking,crime cash can not be used at any way,because crime cash is a illegal money,which must be taken away by the goverrnment or country.
    After reading this new,I find that crime money can be used by this way. Over 100 boxing clubs across Scotland are to be given £360,000 in profits seized from criminals,this money will be encouraged young people to take part in the sports,especially in boxing,because boxing is a sport which puts young people on a positive path in life and strengthens their health conditions.So far the programme has offered an opportunity to take part in free activities.
    I believe,it is good way to use crime cash.Taking consideration into young people’s health,government used crime cash in a perfect way.Although crime money must be very illegal,it uses very legally.

    FEELING/OPINION:This piece of news makes me feel so fun, there always some things in this world are complicated, look at this ridiculous case : It is understood that, although morally speaking, abortion means to kill a life before it comes to this world ,that is the most merciless thing I think, the woman in this case killed her own child for not just one time and she did not get agreement with her husband at all,so from this point of view,she is guilty without any doubt! bounce while as we can see in this case ,the consequence is absolutely opposite :”Liu's(the husband)demand for psychological compensation was thrown out by the judge as China's marriage law stipulates that wives own the right to terminate a pregnancy. That makes me so confused! Question

    FAIR OR NOT: I do not think this judgment is fair. I think the man has lost a lot, having a child is a human’s right and as a couple; the woman should discuss this with her husband.

    DETERRED/GLORIFIED:It will be glorified.

    My Feelings About This News: Alisha needed more than 30 stitches after she was bitten by a Staffordshire bull.But a statement from the police said: "It is always distressing for the family when a dog bites their child but in law it is not always a criminal matter for investigation by the police, Labour MP Mr Robinson said: "The police and the others called in to investigate the situation said we can't do anything because it's on private property.I feel very sad after i read this news, because if we do nothing to this kind of crime, the owners of the dogs will be very rampant. They will let their dogs bite many other people, but the lawyer can do nothing to it because of the law. That is what we're trying to get the government to do.
    Fair or Not: Unfair
    Deterred or glorify: Deterred news

    FEELING/OPINION:A man killed an elderly woman because he want to get death penalty.After reading this article,I think this criminal behavior is very ridiculous.The man must be have psychological problems.Maybe due to he suffered many trouble so that he commit a crime.But he killed guiltless person was unforgivable.In addition,the purpose of crime makes me very confused and feel ludicrous.

    FAIR OR NOT:I think it's fair.The man committed crime should be punished.It places guilt on the criminal.

    DETERRED/GLORIFIED:Deterred.

    Nowdays,there are many cases that police can not catach the morder.Yesterday I heared a case,there are mang young girls had been killed,but,until now,the police still can not catch the mmurder.It seems that matter has gone.
    The reporter asked the police “when will you can catch the murder?”the police always say “they will try their best to catch the murder.In fact,so mang similar cases in china,they will be never solved. al
    It is unfair,because ,there ara so mang lives and they are all young girls.most of their parants can not live longer without their daughter.
    In my opinion,this matter should not happen.As a people ,we have responsibility t keep our society safe.

    A man who used a blowtorch and screwdrivers to break into five houses in Londonderry last January has been jailed for 12 months.Ryan Harkin, 19, from Northland Road, broke into or attempted to break into the houses at Ivy Mead in what a judge described as a spree of criminality.The judge told Londonderry Crown court that people were entitled to feel safe in their own homes.
    I think it is fair,beause the safe of house and the owner should be pretected by the law .The bad man must be punished.
    I think the crime let people stop to do thus things

    On Oct 13,2011,A gunman opened fire Wednesday in a busy hair salon, killing eight people and critically wounding another while leaving bodies scattered throughout the businessin a normally sedate California beach communi and the gunman got into a car and drove away from Salon Meritage after opening fire about 1:30pm. He was stopped by officers about a half-mile away and surrendered without incident, saidpolice Sgt. Steve Bowles. The gunman was the husband of another employee .He has seen just one other homicide in the past four years.We do not know that what is his motive. But he is relly cruel.He did not value other people`s life and himself.He also has broken the beautiful and the quiet city!
    I think he will come under the punishment .The police will bring in a verdict of unlawful killing.Obviously, a crime of this magnitude is something that Seal Beach will bring enormous suffering.

    Feeling:This event makes me understand police should be fair, especially to the common people.And for the night clubs, pay much attention to the safety.Therefore,for some leaders, are accused of providing shelters for the gang is illegal,the governmeng must stop this manner.The most important thing is to bring criminals to justice.
    It was fair, and guilt on the criminal.
    This article is deterred. I think the government will take steps for this.

    OPINIONS ABOUT THE DEATH OF Al-GADDAFI

    In my opinion the death of AL-Gaddafi was fair .His death was not only good for the people of Libya but also good for world peace . Under his rule the people suffered a lot of pain and the country was turbulence. So many people dead for his cruel control .Although I don’t know why the army shout him immediately
    May be they should make the things clearly at first and kill him later.

    In my opinion, he deserved this. The employees should have got their own money that they gain it by working hard. He should be punished. He should give money back to the employees. For this article told us the way the owner take the money run away, I think it glorify the crime.

    Goc has ordered to survey the truth.

    Recently,it is said about these crews was murdered by some tains who sell drugs ,but this is political problems.I hope that these crews can have a another good life in heaven.Sad

    Nowadays I think maybe there are too many bomb attack crimes. They were all did by some activists who were finally punished. Maybe they have their reasons, but most of them failed because violence cannot solve problems.

    Although these kinds of reports gave negative descriptions of the crimes, they were deterred, there are still activists make the attacks.

    I feel very sad about that guy, he was a very ambitious pre-med student at the University of Minnesota, hoping for an internship at the Mayo Clinic.
    It is a pity that he wanted to join the war, he is very young, he should do many things for his motherland or the whole world, not fight against others.
    Also, it is very interesting that so many people want to attack the USA.

    I think it's not fair. The bad guys should not let those good people do bad things.
    We should deter this kind of things.
