3 Teenagers Charged in Vandalism at Cemetery

Three teenagers have turned themselves in to police after allegedly toppling 250 headstones and shattering two statues and causing an estimated $1 million in damage at a Boyle Heights cemetery over the weekend, authorities said Monday.

Two of the juveniles, a 17-year-old boy and 14-year-old girl who live nearby, reportedly confessed Sunday after they saw news of what they had done on television, said Los Angeles Police Det. Sal Nares. They apparently became remorseful and told their parents of their deeds. The parents took them to the Hollenbeck police station, he said.

I think it is wonderful how many people have posted in this thread who've been here a long time, some since the beginning, and have single-digit post counts... even just one post, yet all this time have been silently contributing for up to twenty years. Congrats to all of you for persevering this far. :^)

Yep, I know. I mentioned that I downloaded the 32bit version and used Rufus to burn the ISO to the flash drive. :)


You did, and I completely missed it. :^)

I'm wondering how "every life is precious and that every life is a sacred gift from God" didn't apply to the life of the convicted murderer Talibama executed the very same day.

<<shrug>> Don't blame me... it's the governor who doesn't know the proper use of the word "every". :^p

Also correct in that an EU or UK leader is not going to be called "a prime minister for all Australians." :^)

How wonderful that 22 seemingly-cloned senators (all men... and here is an issue where gender is actually relevant) voted down the rape and incest exception, ensuring that Alabama's 11-year-old girls also will have the privilege of carrying their screamingly unwanted rape babies to an agonizing birthing of basically being torn open... rather like being raped a second time.

It isn't called "Talibama" for nothing. :^p

Was hoping to cross a million RAC for my 20th... SETIversary? AnniverSETI?... today, but doesn't look like that is going to happen. :^) It's been a good two decades anyway. When this project first started I predicted it would be at least twenty years before the hardware, algorithms and techniques were sophisticated enough to make a discovery (plus there's that much space to listen to.) With the recent developments of Breakthrough Listen, two more signal sources, the computing power of modern GPUs and the optimized clients to achieve their full potential, it seems we're just about there.

Edit: Thank you, Zalster. :^) And congrats to Gene, Dave Lewis, XArchAngel and of course Pierre Renaud on your 20ths!

Some cleanup was required and posts have gone away. Please keep it civil as per the policies on the left displayed always when writing a posting.

This would be a good time for a reminder of the Filtered Users setting in your profile's Community Preferences, which can be used to put someone on ignore, and the tiny (and too often easily-missed) red X button at the bottom of every post between the post ID and Reply button. If a post is found to be offensive, it's always better to use that to report it rather than respond in kind and throw more fuel on the flames.

Thank you. :^)

Yes, and it stayed like that for months. Microsoft may have recently changed it to put itself back on again. Ah well.
Edit: I guess disabling updates avoided the update that made that change...
Did you also Disable the "Automatic Updates" service? I think that one may be required as well.
