    Excuse the long reply: With Obama's crime-unity organizers, Pell grants will be expoited more than ever for freeloaders, fraudsters, pedophiles, illegal aliens...and now Hamas members who can come to the US to study for free. Maybe they will pretend to go to school as a cover while they spy and commit other crimes and send more money to their terrorist buddies back home.

    Although I can't find it writing, I heard on the Joyce Kaufman show that governor crist invited Obama to send 10 to 20 thousand Palestinian "refugees" to Florida. So I guess they can use some of the stimulus money to set up schools for Palestinian refugees like the Caribe center has been set up for Haitian and Cuban immigrants.

    It is outrageous that recent Cuban immigrants, often hand selected by the Cuban government since Clinton helped put the Cuban lottery system into place, get to go to college for free. They should flip burgers, wash dishes in the early morning and work as security guards at night like my Cuban born husband had to do to put himself through college and graduate school. I thought they wanted to take on jobs that Americans wouldn't do? They can waitress, work in the college cafeteria, student teach, etc., to get through school and work extra jobs to pay off student loans the same as the majority of hardworking Americans have to do.

    The demoncrats will extend eligibility to illegal aliens which is what they wanted to do with the DREAM act. They can continue to provide Pell grants to pedophiles and other prisoners who have been reported to cancel their classes and use the Pell grant money to buy CDs, clothes, (drugs?). Meanwhile, Pell grant monies are denied to graduate students and most middle class students because there is a finite amount of money to go around.

    Also, if you are middle class, or part of Obama's nouveau riche, YOUR tuition will increase to make up for the increase in Pell grant students.

    1998 testimony before congress re: Pell grant fraud

    Pell grant money goes to sex offenders Do you think that their victims qualify for a Pell grant? Probably not.

    Nancy Pelosi backs tuition breaks for illegal aliens (including pell grants)

    Read Senator Sessions congressional arguments against the DREAM act and you will see WHY the group of marxists Lt.Col. Allen West so aptly named The PC Club have put Pell Grants in the stimulus package. According to Senator Sessions, self employed illegal aliens are given legal alien status for 6 years during which they can apply for citizenship. Self employment can mean that they only work ONE day a year!

    He also said "...Under title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended, legal permanent residents and certain other eligible noncitizens receive Fed- eral student financial aid, including Pell grants and Stafford student loans. That is part of the 1965 act. The committee bill will add illegal students, illegal alien volunteers, and illegal alien military members to the list of people eligible, by changing, heir immigration status to that of a legal permanent resident. This change in status would make them eligible for Federal financial aid. Pell grants and Stafford loans currently comprise 85 percent of postsecondary student aid available to citizens and eligible non- citizens. In fiscal year 2002, 8.8 percent of the individuals receiving Pell grants were eligible noncitizens over 380,000 people."

    "We want to help people and be generous. But if you are in an illegal status, I do not see why there is an obligation to give the same extra benefits that you do to those who are lawfully here."

    "Pell grants. The Federal Pell Grant Program is the single largest source of grant aid for postsecondary education funded by the Federal Government. There is already a current fiscal year Pell grant shortfall of over $2.5 billion. We have done a lot of different things to try to get money as high as we can get it this year. The fiscal year 2003 estimated program costs are approximately $12.5 billion. The annual appropriations is $11.4 billion. Now we want to open up Pell grants to illegal aliens? Although Pell grants are a discre tionary program, the cost of increasing the number of eligible recipients in an award year is considered direct spend- ing, when the appropriations and max- imum grant award for that year are al- ready set in law and a payment sched- ule is published. Thus, we could be fac- ing a budget point of order with this bill. In other words, since in a number of these instances the right to have a Pell grant for qualifying persons is an entitlement, making more people eligi ble for this entitlement could subject this bill to a budget point of order. The Congressional Budget Office esti mates that 58,500 additional Pell grants would have been given within 1 year if last year’s DREAM Act had passed, with an average grant being $2,420. How many people do not get a dime who try to send their kids to college, out of State maybe, people who have worked hard all their life, middle-class Ameri- cans? They do not get a dime. But somebody who is here illegally gets $2,400? I do not think that is fair." Sen. Sessions, 2006

    KMOZ St. Louis has reported that the Jerseyville Police has admitted the kid was already handcuffed when he was tasered. KMOZ also reported that "Witnesses say officers then tasered the teen at least twice and repeatedly punched him."

    In border-lingo, "Ay yay yay!"

    I was illustrating the absurdity of the ratio of one teenage kid on a corner all by himself and six (or more) cops called to subdue him. I thought you had to have a sense of humor to be a freeper, guess not.

    Why six cops in the first place to restrain a kid crying out I Love Jesus over and over? I could understand two going to check him out, but SIX?!!?! No wonder meth is taking over the midwest, SIX cops in a city of 20,000 called to go out and taze the teenage street preacher.

    No, BeHoldAPaleHorse, I didn't mean this kid, I meant children 13 and under, did they ever "tune up" kids that young? And okay, please don't include in the hypothetical an example of a 13 year old, 200 pound wrestler with a gun to his grandmother's forehead, as an example of a "child", I mean average looking kids of normal stature and normal weight.

    Excellent points both of you!

    Sadly more and more police forces are getting militarized or are working under unchecked corruption where only the bullies get promoted. In other cases, they are just getting lied to. In Putnam County FL after 12 children were tased and a Marine was wrongly tased in front of his house, this was reported to have happened at a Town Hall meeting when Panel faces heat after tazing incident

    Rob Reisinger, the training officer for the Leon County Sheriff's Department said he has tased over 200 people and been tased on several occasions.

    Reisinger said he believes the effects on the body are minimal at worst.

    "It will not disrupt the heart. It will not disrupt the pacemaker," Reisinger proclaimed.

    "Rake your feet across the carpet a couple of times and touch something medal. That's approximately 50,000 watts."

    When the eruption of laughter that ensued following Reisinger's comments finally subsided, someone seemingly more qualified to comment on such a matter rebutted his statement.

    Even ignorant born agains like me know that 50,000 watts is either a typo or a mispeak, but that aside, by Reisinger's definition, "Help, I've just tased myself"!)

    But no wonder Reisinger made a fool of himself and they've been tasing so many children. In the article, Experts debate stun guns Gary Bowling, a training officer for the Putnam County Sheriff's Office, said he left a Taser seminar thinking UL endorsed Tasers. He said the UL name convinced him that he could ``Taser a 4- to 400-year-old, if necessary.''

    ''I trust UL,'' Bowling said. ``I treat that chart as gospel.''

    When told by The Herald that UL had not tested the product, Bowling said, ``That chart's misleading. I looked at that and I thought UL had tested Tasers and put that dot on the chart.''

    So you don't have to over-analyze my question above, let me be more specific, a child is defined by 13 and under.

    I wish there was a way to add online audio to my reply, so you could hear me shouting for Jesus now. And now to further add fuel to the fire of your stereotype: Pr 15:14 ¶ The heart of him that hath understanding seeketh knowledge: but the mouth of fools feedeth on foolishness.

    No. The story has been reported worldwide because this isn't the first such story about tasers and the Bible is an important part of the story because he wasn't carrying a weapon and was probably acting like your average street preacher. Don't know if you have ever lived in a large metropolitan area and come across one on the street. Some I have seen act mentally deranged.

    This kid might have had biological issues (as has been reported in the articles you say are strong on hype). Ha, since when has the lamestream media been sympathetic to Judeo-christian religious types?

    Instead of calling people who are troubled by what has been reported thus far, "cop haters" "paranoics" and people with "christian martyr complex" did you every stop to wonder like many of us are, why they needed TWO taser shots? Yeah, you can call me judgmental and ignorant, it still appears to me to be bully SISSY police work.

    He may have been a Baptist, he may have been bipolar, and if had been holding a satanic bible crying out to lucifer, it still has the appearance of bully police work.

    push the buttons of Christian paranoiacs..

    Not even trying to hide your bigotry, huh? Did you learn that phrase in the academy?

    I read this comment on Telegraph:

    to B, CT Go watch the news video from the local St. Louis Channels- eye witnesses said the boy was beaten- his head smashed into the side of a squad car, he was handcuffed, on his knees- then tasered. They did not call in any type of help from a local counseling center that has psychologists on staff. You are obviously not from here or have lived away long enough to put this PD to the back of your mind- because you are ignorant to the workings of this corrupt PD. As for making assumptions about being on drugs- at least wait until the toxicology reports come in. His death may or may not be directly related to being tasered twice- but it sure didn't help him any after being beaten.

    Comments --------------------------

    Sure is a good thing that Jeb Bush's son didn't confront cops with tasers when he was intoxicated and resisting arrest. Jeb Bush's son resisted arrest when intoxicated on a street corner in TX.

    Good thing for Jeb's son that he didn't get drunk in Jerseyville. Then again, he wasn't crying for Jesus. If Roger Holyfield had been crying out to allah and carrying a koran, they probably would have called the muslim chaplain and treated him with some respect.

    Mt 25:44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?
    Mt 25:45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.
    Mt 25:46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

    My grandparents took me to see Kathryn Kuhlman when I was a kid. I once went to see Benny Hinn (I know, right?). I later got really sick of an uncurable disease. My last straw with TBN was when the Doctor and the Word program started taking love gifts and said they would send info on how to pray specifically for specific diseases to those people who became love partners. I said, What?!?!?!!!! (some people on this thread might not see anything wrong with that)

    Funny thing, the Lord healed me after lots of repentance and I stopped praying for healing, but rather to be closer to Him, whether sick, dead or well. Benny Hinn wasn't needed at all! And I thought the protestants were supposed to do away with intermediaries.

    A woman at the Messianic congregation that I know, was healed of cancer after being given a few months to live and after telling the Lord she was fine with Him taking her home or healing her even though she would rather be healed to spend time with her kids, she was going to accept His will. Some Christians are healed and some are not.

    It's not easy accepting His will if it goes contrary to ours. And especially if you watch TBN where "OUR wills be done" and if one doesn't receiving healing, a new car, a husband, a new job, etc., etc. then "you don't have enough faith". And all that favor that Osteen and Warren say is supposed to get Christians a good parking space and a good deal on shopping. What concern for worldly things. What blasphemy! They forget the saints who have been martyred.

    Isa 57:1 The righteous perisheth, and no man layeth it to heart: and merciful men are taken away, none considering that the righteous is taken away from the evil to come.

    Ps 116:15 Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints.

    I disagree about not using reason with the emotionally immature. I think back to when people planted seeds with me, especially when I wasn't a believer, some were met with offense and ridicule, but it sunk in eventually. If the church and the saints taught apologetics like it/they should, most people would have a clue rather than be led like sheep to the slaughter in this lukewarm church age. Are people not supposed to expose false teaching?

    LOL, I'll go on: I remember when I was a baby Christian watching Fred Price one evening for the first time and thinking he was brave in that he spoke against the doctrine of the black Muslim movement and specifically Louis Farrakhan, after someone gave him a video taped secretly from a Farrakhan meeting where LF said something unscriptural about Jesus Christ. Fred Price had a 4 week (4 evenings) teachings against Islam, I think I watched two of them.

    This is the same Fred Price who said that God can't do anything unless we give him permission! And said:

    “I’ve got 25 million dollars in my financial statement, free and clear I have no debt, I live in a 25 room mansion, I have my own 6 million dollar yacht, I have my own private jet and I have my own helicopter and I have 7 luxury automobiles so I never get board having to drive the same car more than one time in any given week” Fred Price expose

    Regarding his stance against Islam and his truth mixed with lies:

    2Co 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

    But the more people watch TBN, the less time they read for themselves.
