Expulsion, not explosions.
|2 days 1 hour ago||I don't think there should be||
I don't think there should be criminal penalties. My belief is that destruction of the building of a failing business by a bunch of college kids, who then pay for all the damage shouldn't warrant additional punishment. There is a reason for the criminal law. It can come in handy in forcing restitution if the damages are not paid voluntarily by the offenders. It can also be used as punishment when the accused can't pay the cost of repair or if the property is of a personal or unique nature. Here, assuming the kids pay the reasonable repair costs, there is little reason for criminal prosecution other than the "feeling" and mindset that rich snotty kids should be taught a lesson about respecting Gaylord and small towns generally. If the kids were a local bachelor party, a rock band or even kids from a "local" college, no one would be asking for more than restitution and maybe nominal community service. Explosions and prison time would be way over the line.

whether it was in BE or not. So, this is a failing business he was either losing or needed to get help with any way. These damage amounts will please creditors even if it slightly slows down the BK.
|2 days 23 hours ago||A failing business is bailed||
A failing business is bailed out? Should that be a headline here?
|3 days 10 min ago||Wow||
Just like Andy Kaufman's bit!!! He got those folks so riled up over nothing. You HAVE to watch it and imagine one of the wrestling fans saying exactly what you said.
It was a great piece of comedy.
|3 days 16 min ago||It's those damn big city folk||
We'll show them!!! Hang em up boys!!!! N
|3 days 17 min ago||Expel me why don't you?||
Seems to be your solution for everything. Very tolerant.
|3 days 21 min ago||then why force the council to vote?||
sounds like they want to send the message to the DA that he has no discretion if he wants to be re-elected.
|3 days 23 min ago||not if||
not if your business was failing miserably and needed renovations and publicity. if you owned that type of business you wouldn't be mad (as long as actual damages are paid).
|3 days 36 min ago||Us old folks know that this||
Us old folks know that this resort will be the ones without the parties now!! Good publicity.
|3 days 38 min ago||These kids||
Let's take our feelings about that "particular mindset" out on these kids!!! These kids are entitled and snotty. I know. I went to UM with them too. But, are you going to give extra punishment to these kids because of years of disrespect from others?
|3 days 43 min ago||re-read your post||
I realize that people make a decision to move to smaller towns. I made the same decision.
I know these things because I have lived in many different towns and learned many things from my life of experiences (which appears to be twice as long as yours).
The other thing I learned is that people who get angry and act overly defensive have their own issues with inferiority feelings that they need to examine.
|3 days 48 min ago||Expelled isn't enough!||
Let's burn the Treetops logo onto their faces!
Stupid frat kids from a big, shiny prestigious school!!!
|3 days 55 min ago||The public demanded||
The public demanded the government council prosecute these kids to the fullest extent of the law. It was a unanimous vote in favor. Those people want their pound of flesh. They aren't concerned with just making the hotel whole.
So, why do you think people changed their opinion about prosecutorial discretion and forced the city to act? You think the city just had a random attack of justice consciousness?
Or do you think they felt disrespected?
|3 days 1 hour ago||Do you know what hypocrisy means?||
I have never met some one from a rural area that takes offense to the term "from the sticks." In fact, many people actively use that term.
Are you trying to tell me there is no jealousy or inferiority complex with some people in a small town when Rich people from a bigger city come in? Have you ever heard of the town/gown relation problem at some schools? Or know someone who lived in a vacation town?
It happens everywhere. People in Detroit have inferiority complex about Chicago, etc. they are jealous of the stuff Chicago has to do. it's a common thing you see in ciommunitirs. It's why so many people love to hate NY teams.
Do you think every person in Gaylord is any different?
|3 days 1 hour ago||Not over.||
Is the number high enough yet? This is like some Andy Kaufman sketch were the people from the sticks are going to take it out on the rich spoiled kids from the city because of some deep seeded jealousy and inferiority.
Hang ''em high!!!! Right people?!?!? They aren't just young, dumb kids. They aren't people!!
|3 days 1 hour ago||Wouldn't||
Wouldn't this resort the least likely to have frat kids partying at it in the future?
|3 days 1 hour ago||Publicity||
They have reciieved tons of publicity and they will soon have nice new rooms,etc. there is no brand damage. That is just BS from an attorney.
|3 days 23 hours ago||Exactly. The programs are||
Exactly. The programs are both quality, as was Barwis. The change just makes players and fans enthusiastic. It's blown WAY out of proportion.
|5 days 22 hours ago||SMH. We are as likely to see||
SMH. We are as likely to see a SNL spoof of the Treetops incident as a spoof on the lunch you ordered today. Both are gripping the nation's attention.
|1 week 6 days ago||again?||
what do you mean being out of touch again? what elite school doesn't have out of touch naive students?
|2 weeks 5 days ago||futile||
the team didn't do well, so arguing other than the players/coaches such is futile.
these takes and opinions are idiotic.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||That much? Six guys out of||
That much? Six guys out of two full classes? More kids than that wash out at Bama. What a horrible premise!
|2 weeks 5 days ago||TL, DR: A small sample of||
TL, DR: A small sample of Sophmores and juniors from last year haven't played much or well on the 5-7 team last year.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Oh.... And you'll have to||
Oh.... And you'll have to tell Gardner and the Michigan offense about all those advantages :)
|2 weeks 6 days ago||I guess that is premised on||
I guess that is premised on the idea that the offense has enough advantages already. Both teams have an offense.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Do we need an ineligible man||
Do we need an ineligible man down field rule? With spread offenses, the A11 and never punt coaches, it seems like the game has opened up and become aggressive. Why not just allow guys to run downfield and pass block? That would be exciting and it would also leave the QB open to some pressure! Sounds like fun.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Those are not mutually exclusive.||
Those are not mutually exclusive.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||I wonder if an Internet||
I wonder if an Internet message board debate over that topic anywhere has ever been a good idea. I would think not.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||This involves the dead babies||
This involves the dead baby of a patriotic military couple... and you are going to point out the possibility it is a scam? I love your bravado in the face of the mouth-breathers on here. Nice!!!!
BTW- Others have mentioned that it is likely his failure to enroll in the insurance program. Plus, apparently funeral homes with cover costs in these situations for free and/or his unit, assitance groups, etc.
So, while I don't have the cajones to even suggest the word scam, I think that it is probably just a guy who isn't thinking of all the other ways to resolve this and he just simply edited his previous funding page that was already set up.
