There is a really weird story coming out now that the police are really pushing. I don't think that anyone would drive 3 hours to do a drug deal with the juror and then leave without the drugs. I mean, the police would never coerce a fake story out of known criminals in order to cover-up a revenge attack on someone who helped convict one of their own, would they?

"his handgun was resting in the center console when a train passed by, spooking Molly and causing her to step on the gun."

Woman passenger was shot in leg.

Where was the good dog with a gun to prevent this happening?

I don't know much about guns, but don't they have a safety catch or something?!

Yeah, but those Labs are really smart dogs. If an automatic, it must have been cocked with the safety off, or if it was a revolver the hammer must have been cocked, either of which are ridiculously unsafe. She's lucky it was a .22 instead of a centrefire calibre.

This Lab sounds more intelligent than the 'shoot-em-up' gun owner.

I must admit, when I read this from JS
"his handgun was resting in the center console when a train passed by, spooking Molly and causing her to step on the gun."
I thought Molly was a human, and wondered what Molly and her companion were up to with her feet on the console

If it was similar to a Glock the safety release is part of the trigger. So by pulling the trigger you release the safety. That is why I never keep a round chambered in a Glock.

Granted what this girl did wasn't smart, but seems arresting and charging her with a felony over it is a little overboard.

They added that the 12-year-old was taken to an “appropriate facility” after the arrest.
Some sort of reeducation camp?

I would not have made it past 6.

Woman who thought her baby had died, finds out 30 years later he is living, married and has 1 child. Thanks to one of those DNA testing sites.

Lovely story with a happy ending.
I found my paternal uncle, who was given away as a toddler, through dna testing. I also now know who my paternal grandad was. Incidentally the uncle and grandad are not related.
I am ever hopeful that a trace may come up for my maternal cousin(s)

I have been tempted to get one of those tests out of curiosity to see any possible connections. I'll have to look into it one day.

Family history interests me, I just suck as the research part and my last name is so common which doesn't make it easy.. One day I may do it and see.
