    So I have an mental illness and I have no source of income at all. I tried applying for disability and have been turned down multiple times. I saw this dress that I wanted so bad back in january and I wanted it so bad so I decided to buy it using my parent's credit card. I denied buying it for the past couple of months and recently a few days ago the credit card company contacted the local police and now an investigator is signed onto this case. The investigator came to my moms work place and asked her questions if she bought it. She said no and he says he's gonna ask the neighbors if they saw anyone grabbing packages and run. He's assuming someone used our card and address to get the items and then got it and ran. My friends says the investigator is going to search the house eventually and will find the dress in my room. I spoke to my case manager at the state clinic and she said if I got an attorney then all the attorney has to do is say that I am mentally ill and that my parents are going to lecture me about and they will drop the case. My friend andy on the other hand says they are not going to drop it when they find out that it is me and says they are going to prosecute me. I don't know why my friends says that when my case manager says that I can get off from this without legal issues. Would I be able to avoid prison time if I have an mental illness ? Would the police ever search the house ? Would it be easy to get this case dropped ?

  • Is it bad for my laptop if I increase the number of cores?

    Best answer: You can only use the number of cores the processor has, and the system does that by default. Thus you can't gain anything by trying to tweak it - there's nothing to tweak. You can, if you know what you're doing, for diagnostic purposes RESTRICT the number of cores used, but that's no good for you.

  • How do Liberals explain why African Americans have such low IQs?

    How do Liberals explain why African Americans have such low IQs?

    It's not like this group is malnourished. They're vastly over represented in athletic sports. They're over 80 percent of the NBA & the NFL, and that is despite being 12 percent the population.

    It's not like this group is malnourished. They're vastly over represented in athletic sports. They're over 80 percent of the NBA & the NFL, and that is despite being 12 percent the population. Say all populations or "races" were the same. In a perfect distribution, in a room there'd be about 12 Africans, 64 whites, 18 Hispanics, 4 Asians, etc. To have Africans wind up as 80 percent in an equal distribution, there would need to be like 310 African Americans instead of 12. It's not like this is caused by sociological variables. The concentration of African athletes gets higher every level. In the College level, 57 percent of football players are black. In highschool, it's hard to find an exact number, but it's around 20 percent. Just look at any population's gene pool. Different climates select for different traits. Are you going to tell 70,000 in a tropic biome would have the same effect on a population's genome as 70,000 years in a temperate one? Nonsense. Besides, not only do Africans Americans have the lowest IQs, they have the smallest brain sizes. The average African American IQ is 85, whites 100, and Asians 103. That's exactly what you would expect given their brain sizes. Also, inversely, Asians have the smallest stature and weight on average. The average height of an East Asian male is only about 5'6. Whites are closer to blacks at about 5'10 for the average male. Africans have more muscle mass on average, however. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/article...

  • Is it illegal to rob a dead body?

    Let’s say that there was a shootout in my neighborhood between two rival gangs, and I happened to stumble upon a corpse before police arrive and it’s very clear that he’s dead.

    Let’s say that there was a shootout in my neighborhood between two rival gangs, and I happened to stumble upon a corpse before police arrive and it’s very clear that he’s dead. No pulse, brains splattered across the street and all that. Would it be illegal for me to run in his pockets and take his phone and money from his wallet? I mean at that point he doesn’t exist anymore so what law states that I can’t rob a non existing person? Could it be tampering with evidence? Is a dead body considered evidence before the police arrive at the scene? But why would his wallet be used as evidence for a shootout? I would probably just leave the phone just in case.
