In the article Abuse argument doesn't fly It talks about this guy who killed four people and he is trying to get less time in jail by syaing he was abused as a child. I think this is stupid because even if he was abused it doesn't give im the right to kill people.

In the article Gray continues national climb what matters is to keep trying and to be successful. The article is about a girl who was on the boys wrestling team last year and is now ranked number 1 in the country also she has a 4.0 grade point average and she is a senior now. She moved to michigan so she can train with the olympic team. This is important to me because I want to become as successful as her sometime in my life.

In the article Cops seek man, van in attempted kidnapping of boy the article talks about how a man tried to kidnap a 10 year old boy. What matters in this article is trying to be safe when you are traveling from one place to another. The 10 year old was walking to school when a van pulled up and the man tried to get him into it. The boy refused to get in and the man tried to grab him, but the boy managed to get away and run to school. I think that this happens way too often and that people who try to do this are sick. I think that the boy should walk with someone or be driven to school from now on.

In the article 16-year-old found with knives, BB gun at Eaglecrest it talks about how a former student was mad a some one who goes to eaglecrest and he wanted to get into a fight. This is scary because he had two knives and a BB gun and he could have really hurt sombody. The student also said that he had a real gun a home. He was charged with first-degree burglary and unlawfully carrying a weapon on school grounds. This matters to me because I was just at Eaglecrest on Wednesday for a wrestling meet.

In the article Springs student arrested with lancet what matters is keeping children safe. This article is about how a student was arrested for poking people with a lancet in the hallways. The student wasarrested and charged with three counts of second-degree assault, three counts of reckless endangerment and one count of theft. This is important because even though he was joking around he could have really harmed somebody. Also this could happen at any school and I'm glad that the student got into trouble.

In the article Former Aspen police officer faces alcohol charge what matter is keeping people safe and obeying the law. The article talks about an 18-year veteran of the Aspen Police Department who showed up to work and got fired. I don't understand why the cop would just throw his life away and lose his job. He was driving drunk and using his weapon when he got arrested and the next day he was fired.

In the article Cops, Coors, RTD partner to brake holiday drunk driving by The denver post I think that what matters is the saftey of people around the holidays. The article is about how a bunch of bars are offering $5 vouchers for cab rides, overnight parking lots, and free Park-and-Ride bus and light rail transportation. This matters to me because i know people who have been in car accidents with drunk drivers. This article is very important because it will make a lot of people safe and get a lot less people into trouble.
