    and if you are adults/parents then pathetic is way to light of a word. i feel very sorry for your children if that's the case. if you do this on a news blog forum, it makes me seiously wonder how you raise your children. with parents like y'all it's no wonder the kids of today are messed up.

      Gee THE DEVIL, you're obviously a fan of Michele Bachmann's,judging by your choice of words here. Tell me one thing however,did she somehow put you up to it? It appears that way.

    enough is enough. cnn may not care but i'm going to report you anyways with your cohorts. this is sick and very, very wrong. your registered email address is probably fake but ip addresses, mobile phone and internet, are easily trackable. this is not a threat just a responsible thing to do. however, your comments to me are vulgar and threats. the legal system does not take that lightly.

    you're a big part of the problem. Threats? Your "friend" said i "will feel pain", that's a THREAT. and you call someone who uses extreme vulgarity, threatens people and calls themself "Devil" a friend? boy this sickness here is beyond belief. i am a responsible citizen and will not take this dangerous behavior lightly.
