Family and friends are not surprised that Jeanna Leslie offered a helping hand to a stranger. But they are shocked that the stranger, a man described as homeless, stabbed her to death with kitchen knives in a bloody attack in her own home, according to police. She had just moved to Denver from Texas a few months ago. Police found Leslie’s body in her downtown loft early on Valentine’s Day after she failed to pick up her children to go to a Nuggets game, the Denver Post reported. The 49-year-old mother of four had been stabbed multiple times. Blood was

Comments:
Being a Good Samaritan should not involve putting your life at risk. I think letting a street person into your own house is unwise, as this lady found out. RIP.

Most of them are deranged or drug-addled. Bad idea to bring them home, go work at a shelter if you´re inclined to help.

Could it be, simply, that she wanted a bed partner?
She apparently did not want to be a wife and mother.

Aldo mention of the ever ubiquitous GoFundMe account to pay for her funeral. It doesn´t appear that she was needy. Let her grown children use their inheritance bury this flighty and naive woman. It´s not the world´s job to bury people so their family members can save that expense.

She picks up a bum, buys him booze, and takes him home with her.

I´m sorry, but when you have kids, you need to be more careful than this. I imagine this poor woman bought into the line about the "homeless are just like you and me." Well, maybe some are, but most of the transients in our city are drug-addled bums or mentally ill. Better to donate to the Salvation Army and let the experts help them out.

Her heart was probably in the right place, but her head should have been in charge. RIP.

What I have told a kind friend who allowed a guest into his house during the hurricane evacuation--she didn´t want to leave, and has a terrible drug habit--is that he doesn´t owe her that, and that she must leave. His home is not hers. Being too nice to low lives puts better lives at risk. This article is about a fatal case of naïveté.

#1 is correct that helping homeless people is best done by helping homeless shelters, not individuals.

Little confused. If her ex called the police when she didn´t pick up the kids, how come it took a week to go into her loft? Nobody checked on her during that week? Is it really the homeless guy?

I am out in the community all the time, including being around homeless people. I don´t want anyone to know where I live, much less my name. A senior citizen was crazier than the homeless.

There is NO good that can ever come from approaching a homeless person. None. They have access to assistance if they want it, and they know where it is.
Never, I repeat, never offer help to a homeless person... especially if you´re a woman.

Criticize the murdered women all you want for her naivete. Don´t use her death as a diving board to jump way out there to an unsupported, and extremely cruel, conclusion.


May she rest in peace. Thank God He is more merciful than we are.

No stamp, no problem: California lawmakers
approve proposal for postage-free voting by mail
Los Angeles Times, by John Myers    Original Article
Posted By: NorthernDog- 6/21/2018 7:32:56     Post Reply
California voters no longer would have to scramble to find stamps for their ballots under legislation sent to Gov. Jerry Brown on Thursday for postage-free voting. If signed into law, Assembly Bill 216 would require county elections officials to send prepaid postage envelopes with ballots mailed to voters. Californians frequently fail to put enough stamps on an envelope, or simply send a ballot back without any postage. Some of those ballots are ultimately delivered by postal officials. Supporters said the changing length of ballots — in some elections stretching to multiple pages — can leave voters unprepared for determining how

The Democratic National Committee can officially rule out hosting its convention in Denver. The Denver Post reported Wednesday that the city withdrew its bid to host the Democratic National Convention in 2020 because the date´s don´t work with the city´s schedule. Amber Miller, a Denver city spokeswoman, told the Post that the July 13-16 dates for the event coincide with prior plans. "There are major commitments that cannot be moved without significant impact," Miller said. Politico also reported Wednesday that Denver was one of four cities to make the cut — along with Houston, Miami Beach, Florida, and Milwaukee.

Washington - A Republican strategist who managed Sen. John McCain´s unsuccessful 2008 presidential campaign said Wednesday he is leaving the Republican Party in the wake of the Trump´s administration´s immigration policies that have led to the separation of families.

Scientists discover fossil of ancient

It lived an uneventful life in Earth´s oceans 500 million years ago, but now this newly discovered creature has an unusual honor: It´s been given the scientific name Obamus coronatus, a name that honors President Barack Obama´s passion for science. (Coronatus means "crowned.") The tiny, disc-shaped animal was about a 1/2 inch long, with raised spiral grooves on its surface. It spent its entire life embedded on the ocean floor, likely never moving, according to scientists from the University of California – Riverside. A second small animal, an egg-shaped critter that may have looked like a raisin, was also discovered.

LANSING — The unprecedented outpouring of activism from students after the shooting at Marjorie Douglas Stoneman High School in Parkland, Fla., in February is the genesis for a bill introduced in the Legislature last week that would change the voting age in Michigan to 16. "We allow 16-year-olds to go off and get jobs and pay taxes, but we fail to allow them to exercise their voice come election time," said Sen. David Knezek, D-Dearborn Heights. "Young people are setting aside their differences and identifying issues they think need to change. And they can do everything to get that change

The millennial generation, those ages 18 to 37, are cheap when it comes to tipping restaurant servers, according to a new surveyed released by CreditCards.com of 1,000 participants. When dining out, 10% of millennials said they typically leave no tip for their server, compared to just 3% of respondents who are older. “People have jobs, but they’re not getting raises, and life is just expensive, especially when you’re carrying student loan debt or other types of debt,” Matt Schulz, a senior industry analyst for CreditCards.com, said to Yahoo Finance. “The other side of it is that we’ve seen a lot

The mayor of Puerto Rico who shot to international fame after criticizing President Trump for not doing enough to help Hurricane Maria victims is being investigated by the FBI on corruption charges, according to multiple news outlets. San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz and her administration are under fire for allegedly obstructing critical supplies from reaching victims of the category-4 hurricane that leveled much of the tiny U.S. territory nearly nine months ago. The FBI reportedly launched the investigation following a February lawsuit filed by Yadira Molina, the former director of procurement. Molina claims she was retaliated

Javier Ruiz Galindo, head of the National House of Mexico for fans in Moscow, said the chant could be perceived in "many ways". "It´s not necessarily meant to insult somebody," he said.

Conservative political newcomer Ivan Duque has been elected president of Colombia. With nearly all votes counted. Mr Duque has 54% with his rival Gustavo Petro on 41.8%. The result raises questions about the future of a historic but controversial peace deal with Farc rebels. Mr Duque, who is supported by former President Alvaro Uribe, has said he will overhaul the 2016 agreement which gave the rebels places in Congress. The orthodox economist also says he will revisit crimes allegedly committed by the rebels during the brutal five-decade conflict with the government. Mr Duque is viewed as the business-friendly

Maybe you think of yourself as a person who really, really loves candy.

But is there a candy you love so much that you would name your child after it? Eric and Renee Cupp of Elizabethtown, North Carolina, said that yes, in fact, there is. With the last name "Cupp," Eric and Renee deliberately chose their daughter´s name, Reese Eve, after their favorite peanut butter and chocolate treat.

Remember Anthony Weiner, also known as “Carlos Danger” — the former congressman who kept texting people pictures of well, umm, that part of his name? It all made quite the splash because he is married to Hillary Clinton’s consigliere and constant sidekick, Huma Abedin. Turns out that Anthony was such a perp — and so enthralled with his own — that he was sexting with a minor. That is a federal offense carrying up to 10 years in prison. So, he got raided by the New York Police Department and the New York office of the FBI. They seized his laptop computer.
