Not one word from the useless race-baiters, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, and obama. All three areRead More useless, self promoting bottom feeders. Scum. Had this been an African American man beaten by a mob of white men, those three clowns would have been front and center on National News every single day. Pure useless excrement. Especially obama.

Nothing Is local on here anymore. Terrible decision to drop local editors for this junk no one caresRead More about. I used to love how we knew everything going on around here from the patch. Now nothing...horrible, horrible decision! !!! I keep hoping someone starts their own patch type of thing. I will be dropping this one.

And we don't get any local news. Oxford Patch did not report the burglary's in Oxford.

We don't have any local news, just boring politics, rained out stories of "Sandy", PoliceRead More stories without names and details. All the usual "cub reporter" crap. Don't blame the reporters it's just an on line "rag". Not even the ability to find stories, investigate a good story, or "MODERATE" the posts and comments. Example Notice the picture of the perp? Check the ears, eyes and face. Wrestler, MMA, brawler?What's your take on the guy, and why did he leave town? Drugs? What did the witnesses say to the cops… lots of good stuff in town, but poor reporting from the "PATCH". No follow-ups either.

When someone intentionally brings harm to another person or person, their punishment for the crimeRead More should be the same and there would be less crime. Stab her to death. Save the taxpayers money, and she deserves nothing less where it's case of intentional murder. The judge was frustrated by the limits of the law.

Maria Houser Conzemius April 18, 2014 at 12:18 pm
I think the woman may have deserved those words, but the judge was unwise to say them. Her sentenceRead More could be overturned on appeal because a higher court could perceive the judge as biased in his judgment.

The judge is right and yes there should be a death penalty!
susan April 18, 2014 at 09:47 am
If there was a death penalty maybe these killers wouldn't think it was so funny. In the days of DNARead More and video cameras everywhere I think it would be a lot easier to be certain that the killer is definitely guilty. As for the judge being "over the top"? NO WAY! This woman is a cold blooded murderer and has the audacity to laugh and roll her eyes at the grief of a family that has lost a loved one. She should have been shut up and ordered to leave the courtroom. In any case, I'm sure she'll learn to shut her mouth when she ends up in prison with other murderers.
michelle April 18, 2014 at 10:14 am
The judge may have been over the top. They are supposed to remain impartial and unemotional when itRead More comes to their jobs. It is strictly about following the law. Now...that doesn't mean I disagree with him. I'm not a judge though. I agree with what he said and when we know 100% someone did something, I'm ok with the death penalty too.

Stealing is stealing and it costs all of us. People who eat the grapes at the grocery store withoutRead More paying for them, are stealing! Every item stolen adds up to added costs to everyone. I would have told this person to pay up first before the fine but the fine is always going to be more than the item. The fine is prevent the person from doing it again. Parking in my city overnight on the street used to be a $5 fine and so many people did. They have since raised the fines. This winter those overnight cars caused a lot of problems. They could not remove the snow with cars on the street. People don't think of the consequences before doing something wrong. Yes, people do things that are wrong but why does this it right? The 89 cents is really cheap for a soda so it makes sense that they don't allow refills for free. I have seen people using soda machines with their own cups. It ends up costing me for being honest. Eat me!

This is ridiculous. Let the guy pay on site. Waste of tax payers money. Theft is wrong, but this forRead More some reason seems different as many restaurants do give free refills.

It's really sad to see the directions this comment section has taken. The beating of Mr. Utash wasRead More horrific and senseless. The people involved should receive the maximum penalty allowed by law. Pointing fingers at each other,, accusing folks of racism,, demanding something of other like JJ,, while clearly demonstrating your point from a racial bias is pathetic! Calling each other names or throwing insults of any kind is more a demonstration of ignorance that your perceived importance in the world.
Greg Thrasher April 18, 2014 at 10:11 am
This Facebook rant is truly disturbing and reveals a deep troubled person with serious racialRead More issues.. I am sadden that it was published !!
Ron April 18, 2014 at 10:12 am
I'm not living in the past,, I realize that slavery ended long ago,, but white America has NO IDEARead More what it is like to be a minority and have people look at you with fear and doubt because of your skin color or country of origin. Humans inherently distrust people that do not look like them. That's a fact. We all do it,, even myself,, and I hate that I can catch that twinge in my soul when I'm in a part of Detroit where I could easily be in danger a situation were to occur. We ALL need to realize that there are good and bad people that are our neighbors,, that sit next to us in church or pass on our sidewalks. The point is that racism and bigotry exist today,, we are ALL guilty of it. Those that choose to deny it and blame others for it are the real problem in the world today. Refusing to accept others as equals is the wrong thing to do regardless or race, gender, ethnicity of sexual orientation. What I try to do every day to improve our world is to simply accept people for who they are, expect them to live up to the words they speak and most importantly, Love All! Life is TOO short.

Sorry to say but your facts prove my point as well....take a look at the demographics.
michelle April 18, 2014 at 11:26 am
What EXACTLY is your point? Spread more hate and call people names? YOU ARE the problem just likeRead More the thugs that beat Mr. Utash. You spread hate, ignorance and intolerance. You keep the issues going instead of bringing people together; you are a divider. It is ok. You are human and we all have our thoughts and feelings on things. We are all entitled to our opinions. I don't hate you. I just don't like you.
Prometheus April 18, 2014 at 11:38 am
My point....is that this problem has been created..by a perversion of equality called "socialRead More justice"..and as you sling words like "hate, ignorance and intolerance" nothing changes. Those same kids will be on that street corner next week....their children will be there 10 yrs from now....and in another 10 their grandchildren. Those are facts.....until respect is earned....those facts will never change....neither will your city.

A horse and carriage ride in a park, fine. But not on busy, crowded city streets. It's cruel to theRead More horse and dangerous to everyone else. I'm with the NYC mayor on this one.

When taxes are imposed on various industries then to stay in business the prices increase on theRead More consumer!
