    That is a good way to counter that kind of hatred.

    Telemarketer alerts police to alleged assault 900 miles away

    It's definitely strange news but it's also good news. Telemarketers actually contributed something positive to the world for once. :o

    On a more serious note they did likely save this woman's life which is a good thing.

    Damn that's crazy. As a former telemarketer myself I can honestly say it is rare that one would do something to benefit someone like that. I know if that call had happened at my old place they would have just hung up and went to the next call

    I too once worked in a call centre. I think they would have reprimanded the salesperson for deviating from the script, failing to make a pitch, and wasting time instead of moving on to another call.

    Man something like that just warms your heart. It also makes me remember how big a**holes little kids can be. It's awesome to know that this little girl had an amazing birthday without those little punks

    It's nice, but I find these massed social-media based responses to individual misfortune to be somehow troubling.

    I just looked up sotos syndrome. The syndrome can cause facial deformities and knowing how kids are I'm betting she gets picked on at school.:csad: Glad that a bunch of people turned up to give her a very special birthday. Her classmates missed out on some fun.

    Obama will restrict grenade launchers, military equipment from local police

    This could easily have gone in the abuse of power thread except for once it is about the restriction of abuse, not the proliferation.:woot:

    The thought of a policeman having a grenade launcher boggles my mind.
