    Those agencies that were involved were not working at any extra expense, all personnel would have been paid the same no matter what because they are salaried. He doesn't need to go to prison nor does he need to lose his kids.

    If it were up to me he would be fined about 25,000 and made to take parenting and anger management classes with periodic visits from social services to the house. This punishment would include the mother as well.

    This is why I believe you have a drinking problem. Do you actually think before you write? I really can't believe that you think these things thru before you make a fool of yourself. Naive to say the least.

    Really. I dont know how the sheriff dept is paid in your area but here is Colorado they have a budget and the sheriffs are salaried out of that budget. If their had been nothing going on that day those sheriffs would have still been paid the same amount of money. Lets talk about the national guard personnel, since I am former military I can tell you that they are salaried getting paid the same no matter what they did that day and those that flew the helicopters would have needed to fly in order to keep their hours up. FBI is salaried so no extra expense there.

    Tell me where the breakdown in logic occurred? The only people that suffered any expense were the farmer whose crops of winter wheat were damaged and maybe Denver International but that has yet to be confirmed. All of the other agencies are paying those costs if the cops are sitting at a doughnut shop.

    Don't bring up the news coverage because they had a choice on whether or not to cover the situation and those persons covering the situation I would assume were on shift and getting paid either way.

    You can say that there was a cost attributed to this event and you are right but it is really no more of a cost than if nothing had happened at all. I cant believe you want to prosecute a fellow Obama supporter.

    Washed up, you are a very bitter person. Why can't you debate someone without trying to belittle them or call them names? Sounds to me like Ugly made a good point. A point, that before it was made, I had not thought of. In Ohio, unless they are volunteer personnel, they are on a salary, too. Hadn't really thought of that aspect, Ugly. Seems to make sense, though.

    The dude does deserve some sort of punishment, just not sure what. Don't think he needs to lose his kids. Come on, people have done dumber things and kept their kids. Maybe a big fine and chain-gang-like community service?
