Do not see how he drowned at 3 ... I raised 3 boys and left them in the tub and they NEVER even went under the water one time.. I can see a baby drowning one that had hardly NO control of there body but a 3 year old.Nope don't see it.. Dakota is a cutie..You cannot trust anyone anymore and that is sad.. Dakota is in heaven now and watching over his family. But ever who kills a baby child a human is worse than a monster. If a person commits murder they need to just do the same thing to that person. Cause why they have the right to be able to take up oxygen when they was the one who decided to take that persons oxygen ?

NO surprise here! He broke into our neighborhood last summer and had 22 charges against him....the courts let gave him 11/29 with time served and he was out less than 11 months later. Before our break ins he was in prison and got out less than 5 months before he ransacked our neighborhood. He has a twin brother that is just like him and they've been doing it since they were teens. Clearly the courts aren't going to stop him because he keeps getting a get out of jail free card. Too bad the homeowner didn't shoot because I'm convinced that is the only thing going to stop this guy. One day his luck will run out! I don't blame our police officers at all, because they do their job, they catch and detain this punk. The courts however fail us miserably by letting him go every time. I know our officers have to be tired of dealing with these constant repeat offenders.

for the xbox one to compete w/PS4 the price needs to be $300.... bundles and limited exclusives are not rescuing this albatross the xbox one has inferior hardware to the PS4...what the exact power differences,are still debatable(am no computer expert just a consumer & gamer)...but it really doesnt matter if its 1% more powerful or 100% more powerful the fact is people dont pay the same price for an inferior products.... inferior hardware means the price needs to drop again..... if dropping the price to 300 is completely unrealistic then the xbox one ever competing with the PS4 is equally unrealistic
