German Mother Can’t See Her Dead Daughter’s Facebook Page

G

That’s what a German Appeals Court has ruled. The original court said she could, and then the case was appealed. The Appeals Court said her daughter’s privacy rights outweighed her mom’s parental rights, or her guardian rights as the mother of a minor, or her inheritance rights. There are a lot of places in this story I am having to fill in.  If anyone mentioned has proof that I have misstated...

BCBS of Alabama Executive Pay Reeks of Rotten

B

Update 1/14/17 I felt the comment below was important enough to bring it to the top of my story as an update, because, as I’ve said many times, sometimes people do not read the comments. It also remains in the comment section.

Again she said we didn’t complete the...

Not in the eyes of the law. Christopher Eugene Brooks was executed in Alabama last night. He had killed Jo Deann Campbell in 1992. His attorneys sought a stay of execution because the method of execution was cruel and unusual punishment. Apparently his murder of Jo Deann was not cruel and unusual punishment to her, because the court never considered that in Brooks’ fight to stay his execution, or...
