Michael Wayne Cummins called Democratic Congressman Ron Barber's office in Sierra Vista on August 20th, court records state, spelling his name for a staff member and providing his phone number. Cummins informed the staff member that he'd like to assault Barber, a survivor of the 2011 Tucson shooting massacre that wounded Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.

"I am not interested in killing Ron, but I am interested in bashing his teeth in and seeing him rot in hell," Cummins told the staff member. He went on with a more general threat, records state: "I am just going to start killing people indiscriminately."

It's headlines like this that make me thankful for ... commas. Just sayin'.

When I die, I can't go to Hell, because I have lived there for the last thirteen years. I mean Phoenix, of course.

I investigated an incident where a guy shot himself, his wife and his grand daughter with a single shot from an unloaded gun, which turned out to be an illegal sawed off 22 rifle.

The first picture is the photo of Ron Barber, who is the VICTIM of the crime. SHOW THE PICTURE OF THE CRIMINAL NOT THE VICTIM!

Is Arizona trying to compete with Florida for the worst state in the Union spot?

The TPD getting away with killing a guy in broad daylight on the first day of Tempe's "zero tolerance" crackdown had better be in that list somewhere.

I'm sure you guys have the multi page interface for ad revenue purposes but honestly, could you at least try and cut down on the amount of pages one has to go through? it's not necessary to put one thought / concept on each individual page. Websites are not like books that have pages that need to be 'flipped'.

I thought we all agreed that Christopher Jackson could not have possibly branded his girlfriend's VAGINA. The "brand" had to be on the labia majora or the Mound of Venus. In matters of this nature you have to be specific.
