ttoille rednaxela - Channel six... Are you serious?
Is this news? Putting someone else's business out in the air? Why is it when it comes to local news, there is never any? This isn't anything, there is no redeeming quality gained from this. There are a lot of issues going on in our city state and country... And you post this, are you guys bored ? So I ask again aren't you the news? Or are you actually an exploitive entity that is solely here in the interest of damaging people, spreading fear and bias. Do you know what real journalism is? Do you take pride in your city at all because as of right now I'm disgusted with all Omaha news outlets... Please learn how to do your jobs right.
THIS ISNT NEWS.
Here are some current events happening.
1. The shooting death of a black man by lapd
2. Gun violence in Omaha
3. Equal rights in Omaha
4. The democrats vs Israel
5. The fact that news isn't news anymore it's just racist exploitive garbage only meant to hurt and tarnish names... Because you have nothing better to do!

lagirdam ynohtna - What kind of loser shows up to work drunk....then gets mad when someone isn't happy with it.......
ssinrehc yelhsa - Everyone is entitled to their own opinions, but fr judging someone and basing who they are off of tattoos and because shes a female with one on her neck? Some pple are ignorant...
.rs llehctim siwel noryb - The ignorant comments some people make smh. Jozette Cotton they have no idea lady but you continue to be the amazing individual that you are! I support you regardless. Never let small minded individuals even think they have any affect on you! 6-0 Do yall research before judging!!
sngised-tilian leikyr ajidahk - Because of who she is, she's getting negative attention... I think the assault was on her.. Look at the pic
nottoc ettezoj - WMMA THAT'S where I work!! Any contracts available!!😂😂😉
egap-pohsib nosilla - But she looks like such a fine, upstanding citizen. A woman with a neck tattoo just exudes femininity and grace.
nottoc ettezoj - If you didn't slander me everyone that has ever interview me know, im well spoken and willing to tell the true story. But infact you let these people comment against me. But not approve my girlfriends comments defending me!! So sad you got yourselves out of an interview.#BeBlessd

We all have opinions but no right to bash someone because we have all been in the wrong at some point in our lives maybe not in this manner but have been wrong. ✌️
reffad mot - Every one who saying a person with a neck tattoo would be expected to do something like this is ignorant and needs to go sit in a corner and think about how judgmental you are being you guys need to hold judgment cause you don't have the right to judge this girl... Acting like you guys are perfect ... just ignorant

WOWT 6 News: Nebraska's Attorney General is trying to delay the lifting of the state's same-sex marriage ban. THE LATEST:Comments:
oddo naes - Stupid who really cares if people of the same sex what to get married Nebraska got other thing to focus on like crime un solved murders meth heads an people shoting each other
mmug yhtomit - 100 years ago, women were denied rights and it was legal. 56 years ago, minorities were denied rights and it was legal. 26 years ago, handicapped person were denied rights and it was legal. These things changed because it was the right and moral thing to do. Denying someone basic human rights undercuts our society as a whole and belittles all of us. I can't think of anything more basic then being allowed to be married legally.
cnalbel yesdnil - Give it a rest, this is 2015 and everyone just needs to accept this and move on with their lives.
etihw nhoj - Thank you, attorney general, for allowing the rest of the country to point and laugh at Nebraska as a backward and homophobic state.
llallik nhoj - Why does he care?! He doesn't have to get gay married!
resiak anitsirhc - It's amazing that the majority of people are for same-sex marriage, yet he's only interested in his own personal views. Government, amirite?
nesretep kcin - "Politicians in Nebraska"
seig ykceb - They better hurry because my husband and I appear to be no longer married and our children have ceased to exist.
iksfokier ekalb - We need to stop wasting time and money fighting this. There are more important issues to tackle than whether or not a couple of peoples names appear on a marriage license.
sehguh nairb - I thought I smelled desperation in the air
zelaznog j airam - Can't we all just stop being childlike and accept the fact that Marriage is about love, and not Gender?
nosrehpcm -remlap nwad - Conservatives at their finest.
snikliw eilrahc - If gays marry, property value will go up. Their lawns will look fabulous!
But seriously, this kind of thinking is what holds us back.
sedul nave - Good to see so many positive comments here. Never would have thought we'd be here 10 years ago.
sretep ttam - Waste. Of. Money.
dlogbeil yhtac - Why is this even an issue? Please! People, wake the hell up. This isn't the 1920s or 1930s. Who cares any more? People, ALL PEOPLE, have the right to be happy. So what if it is with someone who is the same sex. I don't care! Leave them alone!
kcirederf j ymerej - This picture, wow. I like the all caps GAY MARRIAGE banner. It makes people loving each other look like something terrifying. Should have added some explosions.
yraelc nej - Out-of-touch politicians are at it again.
silliw evad - screw him he needs to go hes costing taxpayer money 100s of thousands if not millions between this and sueing colorado nebraska citizens should be asking for his head.
nosredna drawde - I feel a new tax is coming
uaennobrahc htebazile - This needs to be addressed as an "emergency?" Really?? Pretty sure the sky didn't fall in any of the other states.

WOWT 6 News: BREAKING NEWS: Judge Joseph Bataillon has ruled in favor of same sex marriage.Comments:
drabbuh tsorf eniale - Congratulations all my LGBT friends!! From your straight friend with gay pride!!!! I honestly thought Nebraska would be last!
sruhtra eigna - I'm an ordained minister and will marry any couple.
snikle eiluj - One more step to becoming a more progressive state! Now we need weed! :)
adabmiz yeoj - This world is not my home. My government is not made of mere men and Obama is not my king. Jesus is my king. And Jesus condemned homosexuality all throughout the Bible. All scripture is God breathed, Jesus is God, and homosexuality is condemned every time it's mentioned. So congratulations citizens of Earth. You've moved a little further from the love of God and his purpose for marriage and the family. Celebrate now. This life will be the best it ever gets for you.
noslrac inalem - ...and all heterosexual lives remain unchanged...who'da thunk it? 😃
leinadcm yrrehs - God bless them.My God wants happiness for everyone...

ronklaf snave ytteb - God copses who we fall in love with he guides our hearts! I am so ready to officiate at these as many of these amazing couples marriages as I am blessed to be contacted by! Congrats! Can't wait to help fulfill the ceremony of their dreams!!!!
nallelccm acire - Are those against this ruiling are against interracial marriage that was made legal in all 50states just in 1967?? There was no scientific facts that backed up reasoning for interracial marriage to be illegal. It was a matter of opinion. Where are the studies showing gay marriage to be harmful to society?? I don't believe it does. Again its opinion or even worse yet "religion" based. When u can prove through scientific research that gay marriage is harmful to society then it can become illegal. Until then move on
dnomhcir ylrebmik - So happy for my gay friends it's about time
nolnah snikda aral - This is absolutely fantastic news.
senöj etan - "Im so oppressed, why cant everything and everyone be subjugated by MY religion!" *whine*
egdelloc kered - All the people who said we gays can "move if we don't like it"... Well now they can move if they don't like it ;)
ogics haras - It's about time all humans are attempted to be treated equal!
rehsif-nadirehs yerdua - Hooray for the Gay community. For you people who are against this. Worry about more important things, like drug abuse, Robbery, and other crimes. The gay community is not hurting you. They won't try to covert you into becoming gay, God Loves Gays too. Yes, I am straight,
ecnerrot hteb yram - Way to go!!
Took long enough.
Go equal rights!!

WOWT 6 News: Governor Ricketts and Congressman Ashford have issued statements after Judge Batallion's decision to allow same-sex marriage in Nebraska. Read their responses and the full ruling at WOWT.com.Comments:
nivrat evets - WOW, totally expected this state stuck in the fifties to be one of the last. Way to go Nebraska!
ttocs iret - To the gov Ricketts speak for yourself 70% of Nebraska agrees with the SAME SEX marriage where do u get off saying the people of Nebraska don't agree with same sex marriage?
nospmoht dnalrafcm naej - You do not speak for me Governor !! Today Nebraska broke out of the ice age !!!
anidraig enelram knarf - LAST TIME I CHECKED.....GOD CREATED ADAM & EVE....NOT ADAM & STEVE ......
smada nivek - This is a down fall for the state of Nebraska.
dnomder wehttam - All men are created equal. That is what our constitution says, and you can never erase those words. In addition, you can not legislate your personal religious beliefs onto others.
drofletsa ynnad - Slowly, our country is being torn apart at the seams with perversion, and anti-religion....this is pathetic~!!.....God created man and woman for reproduction, not perversion.
gnortsmra m relyt - Hopefully this is a sign of our state becoming more liberal, would love to see us change some other laws now too
nosredna kcir - Gay men have every right to be as misserable as straight men!....let them get marry!!......lmao!
nworb ennazus - Marriage is between a man and woman says that in the Bible....
nosmailliw ydrah annod - Sad day. There will be a judgment day!
sehguh eed - So gubner Pete will allow same sex couples to foster kids, but they can't get married? Makes ZERO sense
nworb ennazus - Gov. Pete Ricketts said Monday that "an activist judge should not substitute his personal political preferences for the will of the people" by overturning a state constitutional ban on same-sex marriage. Ricketts said he will work with Attorney General Doug Peterson to attempt to overturn U.S. District Judge Joseph Bataillon's decision clearing the way for same-sex marriage in Nebraska. The state is appealing the ruling. "The definition of marriage is an issue for the people of Nebraska," the Republican governor said, and they have spoken by approving a state constitutional amendment defining marriage as between one man and one woman..... GO RICKETTS.....
nospmoht dnalrafcm naej - Take your appeal and stick it where the sun don't shine !!! Yeah for Equality and psst that vote from 15 years ago is not valid today!! Take a vote again if you are so sure of what Nebraskans want !!!
senoj einnoc - Guess,this shows,once again,how many people don't believe The Bible!!
hcuorc einalem - Marriage is a legal state and the wedding is the religious ceremony.
zaid-abla idnarb - This makes me so happy!
nivlem naes - Omfg, no one is taking away your right to practice your religion, the LGBT equality movement is only taking away peoples right to discriminate based on sexual orientation. Or are you telling me when Jesus went around excepting those society cast out he was just lying to everybody?
Seems to me like Jesus, if he was walking around today would trying to make LGBT people feel excepted, not cast out
otto l acire - This is our tax money hard at work. We need to not be the last state for a basic human right. #notthelaststate
nosnibor leahcim - Ricketts lies... Only 44% of registered voters voted FOR the ban. That is completely different than saying 70% of Nebraskan's. Thirty-five (%) of voters didn't vote at all that year.
rehctub map - Let them marry... there are bigger issues to worry about...

WOWT 6 News: Ariann and Jess consider the burning of their rainbow flag a hate crime. An Omaha man has been arrested and charged with arson. #watchWOWTComments:
aicrag aynot - Yes it is a hate crime
tdnarb salguod - It's a fitting charge as people need to learn that bullying, bigotry and their superficial "better than thou" attitudes will not be tolerated anymore.
notpmah nej - Keep hanging them!!!
remoolb refinnej - It is a hate crime...by definition. Congress defines a hate crime as a “criminal offense against a person or property motivated in whole or in part by an offender’s bias against a race, religion, disability, ethnic origin or sexual orientation.” Stuff like this and burning crosses in peoples' yards is meant to intimidate/scare ... it's beyond vandalism.
namssilg leahcim - Felony arson? You've got to be shitting me...that's a little overboard I think. He didn't burn there house to the ground with them in it.
nnamedreib tap - Sad that when we disagree with other people`s choices we feel the need to be destructive.
renrod axej - And two of the NICEST people ever...
keelf eimmij - Is it a hate crime to burn the American flag?
sirrah ynnad - Seriously though, can we stop using burning the American flag as a comparison? If someone burns a country's flag it's not a statement against any one particular person or couple. The point isn't even that the flag was their personal property, the point is they were targeted for being gay. Nobody should feel unsafe or unwanted in their own neighborhood for the sexual orientation.
Good God, people.
drof hctud - But when my hawkeyes flag got ripped off my house, it was just funny because its football. eyeroll.
nadroj eirol - Why do these women sexual choice matter to him! Maybe they rejected him smh!
leinadcm .r acissej - People have no respect.....
etnamaid nitram yram - Wow, there are really people who do NOT think this was man's actions were motivated by hate? The whole city should be embarrassed and offended by his unlawful and hateful actions.
ksir mit - My god these lesbians need to lighten up, be more tolerant to dipshits. He vandalized your flag, big deal move on.
ytrehguod leahcim - How is it ok to burn the American flag, but this is not. I don't condone the actions, just wondering?
nitram w kram - So if I took a piece of cloth and burned it and ran down the street it would be a felony, if he would have done it to a American Flag they would have said free speech
egdod ydnim - When I was growing up we called things like this vandalism. Please know I am not saying it is right to destroy someone's property.
reffahs salohcin - Careful...classifying things as "hate crimes" and having different penalties for them is a little vague and a slippery slope for us Americans. Do we really want to be so quick to demand people receive criminal charges that put them in already overflowing prisons? And create a criminal history that will not allow him to get a decent job and be a productive member of society? What do you think this guy will do to provide for himself once he is out of prison? Probably nothing good. All because he burned a rainbow flag. The gay community should've publicly laughed at the idiot and moved on. Now he is gonna be robbing my house or your house when he gets out of prison so he can put food on the table. We have to start thinking on a larger scale than all of us demanding to throw each other in jail. He is a moron that should've been ridiculed but no judicial tax money should be wasted on him.
nostaw assilem - Mean people suck. Wheres the best place to get a flag im gonna hand 3 :D
namssilg leahcim - So burning an American flag is protected under the first amendment. ..but this is classified as a hate crime? How is that even possible?
I fully understand the argument of the difference between burning the American flag as opposed to the Rainbow flag. I realize that the stars and stripes represent a nation, and can therefore be seen to represent the nation’s political policies, while the Rainbow flag represents a minority group, but calling this a hate crime is really pushing it. A true hate crime (if you believe in the classification to begin with) should be limited to physically causing a person bodily harm, or killing them. Hate crimes shouldn’t be watered down and expanded to include protection of symbolic inanimate objects. What’s next? Maybe tearing up a poster of the Village People, or destroying a Celine Dion CD in public – please!
notpmah nej - Give him my address. I don't have a rainbow flag but I would be glad to make a purchase! One at a flag shop and another at the ammo store. Come on in tough guy!

WOWT 6 News: ICYMI...Amid reported sightings of mountain lions, bobcats and coyotes around the metro, a woman says her dog was killed by a wild animal.
renvircs ytsim - My question is why the hell do you leave your animals outside at night IN THE COLD while you're out celebrating? I'm sorry your dog got hurt but you left it in a vulnerable situation!
nessnaj netsirk - How dare we protect native species that we've encroached on their habitats, leaving them no choice but to end up in urban areas...
llewop kram - Her claim needs to be substantiated first. These species are native to the area and are probably more scared of us then we are of them. No one needs to push the panic button.
iselim yhtak - I was leaving carter lake and right as you pass into Omaha by Gallup a coyote crossed the road right in front of my car. I didn't realize this was news worthy however
dduts yaj - Wild animals in Nebraska......really?? Surely you can't be serious!!
sreknap rehpotsirhc - OMG I JUST SAW A LIGER!!!!!!!
htims-reremmek nnairam - This was in my backyard yesterday. Coyote..I live in papillion
ocsecnarfed mada - I saw a tiger in the zoo once same with a cute baby lion
eriugcm enaj - I live in Minnesota part of the year in the boonies with a very active preditor environment. Wolves, coyotes, fox, bobcats, black bears and many others. I also have 3 dogs and two cats. I keep my pets safe and live peacefully amongst the wildlife.
yennikcm yllas - They knew a big cat was in the area and CHOSE to leave their (tasty) dog out at night. Very irresponsible
yelbmal ecyrb - But Ernie will be glad to completely hold up all the business of the Legislature, hold them hostage actually, in order to take wildlife management out of the hands of the Game and Parks Commission. Of course, Sen. Chambers also called all whites "racists" so you get a picture of his thought process.
rendrag-ocsilibig adnil - I am an animal lover. People need to watch their own pets and children better. I live in the country and many times dogs and cats are lost and never found probably due to coyotes. We do not let our dogs or cats run. Please do not encourage the killing of these wild animals.
llessurt ekim - I've seen badgers that kill small dogs and cats here in Omaha.
tferk nilhgualcm ittap - There is a coyote den behind shadow lake mall. The come into the neighborhoods over here. They have been spotted day and night. I have a privacy fence but it still freaks me out. They are loud. Neighbors said there are about 20 or more down there.
ttonra mot - We have 2 or 3 coyotes running the Whitted Creek 14th tee box area at Tregaron Golf Course in Bellevue. Sometimes they get pretty noisy, but they're nocturnal types that avoid contact with humans.
nworb enaj yram - Quit cutting down the woodlands. All that cutting down the timbers is causing them to move in to towns and place not normal to them.. I say let the wild life be bad if you turn your animals loose by them selves then it your fault they get hurt. STOP THE TAKING DOWN OF THE TIMBERS.
zerep cpa - Seen around downtown.
namdlog nivek - If he bites me, I'm gonna kill it.
regrabnedor ffej - So we still shouldn't have a hunting season to keep the population down. Ernie is full of it!
nosredna eniawd - "We must protect these gentle creatures."
zarga leinad - Where exactly in SW Omaha has this occurred?

WOWT 6 News: UPDATE: The president of the Omaha Police Officers Association responded to comments suggesting that officers used excessive force in a deadly officer-involved shooting this week.Comments:
reyem llahsram asereht - Omg I don't understand why anyone even cares about this....The thug got what he deserved and if OPD would start shooting more of these thugs I would bet the losers would think twice before they did it..Keep up the great job OPD and thanks for getting a thug off the streets of Omaha..
yllennek sinned - WHAT is there to discuss or question? A criminal refused to cooperate and threatened officers in the process of apprehending him. The officers did their job--and I, for one, thank them for their service.
snave ecurb - And let's not forget that he beat her also.
ssor mij - You break the law you get whats commlng to you
rekrewgat odalas arobed - I feel she knew he was robbing the place, that is why she was looking out the window. She said he had turned his life around really? She is as bad as he is. Uncooperative with the police.., won't answer any questions, hires an attorney . No case for her believe me! Not with his criminal past! If he was changing his life around why was he in the Sarpy County Jail 4 hrs before that incident.? Why couldn't he have gotten a job to stay out of trouble? The only person I feel sorry for his the child being brought up by parents like them. Sad!
moobsub letnehc - It's really pretty simple: don't commit crimes and comply with what officers are telling you and you don't face the consequences of those actions.
nagoh p leahcim - This is stupid......I feel sorry the lady's lost. But she was across the street looking out a window. That would be hard for anyone to hear and see exactly what happened. I heard her say he was her whole life. The question should be, "Why The Hell Was He Robbing a Dollar General after just getting out of jail?"
relssek .a asil - I don't understand why ANYONE would not stop and obey an officers commands. It is not that hard! STOP! PUT YOUR HANDS IN THE AIR, and DO WHAT THEY SAY. It is a crazy world and if you are breaking the law and don't want to be shot, then do what they say. So simple.
eroom nitsuj - Pretty expensive lawyer for someone who is broke. Wait, the one and only Douche James Martin Davis (Omahas Al Sharpton in how how flies to the high profile cop cases) comes and says "hey lady, we can get an easy mil out of the citizens of omaha on this one". Dont worry bout the cost I got it til we get paid. We will tell them how your abusive husband that is a dickhead was just turning his life around (in the 4 hours since he was in jail last) and you love and miss him so much. Screw this lady, her husband should have not robbed and told police he was armed. He would be in jail where you love and miss him so much jnstead of in a box.
selim cire - Look at the family...that's all the farther you need to look
nanahob idieh - Why is anyone complaining about this man getting shot? He brought it on himself. When the cops say put your hands in the air with there guns drawn then listen and do it! One less criminal we have to worry about.
nosna neelloc - Sad story, but don't blame the police who risk their lives daily to keep us safe. Thank you, officers.
emediab ellenaj - There was No excessive force whatsoever.
reffek enna - You should not be put under stress !! And why wasn't that wife charged for being the get away driver. She knew what her husband was doing and she is just putting pressure on, to get the focus away from her, because of all the stupid bad cop reports recently. To get herself out of trouble, she is getting away with it. Wise up everyone, times are turning, they are wanting evil to win out ! Television is not helping !!
sraes .m.c - It's sad - but all he would have had to do was stop and obey the officers. He may have even got some help for his problems. The blame begins with him.
strebor bor - Shot in the back twice while trying to jump the fence, just saying...I met this cop who has now 2 kills and he at that time had a huge chip on his shoulder. Got attitude because he could have been on a better call. We wasted his time with a B&E. I do not know the guy killed and I hope they have someone outside Omaha investigate this shooting. Just seems in a city where there is so much gun violence, you have to keep both eyes wide open from both sides of the fence. Don't flame me because I have an opinion, lets hope that something can be done about all this killing on both sides of the law!
sarugerg .j mailliw - the media must have got tired wasting viewers time with the weather and the euopean model, etc. just another stupid story to waste viewers time. the man was a thug and just had committed a robbery and threatened the police. good riddance to bad rubbish
cnalbel yesdnil - Dont break the law and you have nothing to worry about. The city is a better place with him dead. Now that lowlife piece of crap wife of his needs to go away as well.
naonoc leahcim - When a police officer tells you to show your hands, YOU SHOW YOUR HANDS! (And keep them visible.) They don't F* around.

noslrac inalem - I'm more worried about somebody hurting the bobcat.
effilnuc draw - First he was a cougar; now he's a bobcat; next we'll find out it's a large tabby cat.

WOWT 6 News: Yes, #TheDress conversation even has a professor of ophthalmology at UNMC weighing in. Curious why some are seeing Gold/White while others Black/Blue? What colors do you see? It's part of tonight's Trending conversation.Comments:
ekip eimac - Lol..nice to know the answer kids been arguing all day over this..and you ask how is this news worthy? I get tired of watching about shooting death robberies all the time. So it's nice every once in awhile to have something different
sreym elleinad - For everyone complaining that this is stupid, go look up the science about it... seeing as how little we all know about the human brain, I think this is amazing. Not because it is about colors and a dress, but it is actually science.
nart daehdoof ynniv - Why is this news?
.rj ssenrah eel nonrev - I see blue and orange. :-)
slrak l nagem - It's blue and black. Absolutely no white or gold to be seen!
reyem rehpotsirhc - In other news Americans completely ignore the fact that their rights are being erroded in favor of moronic debates like this...
nergreb ssor yellehs - Should spell check your posts
reywd neeuqehtotsoduk nagrom - White gold but if I read the comments and scroll back up its blue and black?
lien'o araek - i know its black/blue but all I see is white/gold no matter how many times/ways I look at it. I feel like I'm crazy lol thanks.
etihw trebor - You know what I saw? I saw a crap ton of potholes down Pacific St today.
You know what color they were?
It doesn't matter what color they were so go bust the chops of the roads dept Wowt!
nesnah dahc - Isn't there any real news that you can be reporting on?
gnirol eitak - I see a really really ugly dress no matter what color it is! Haha!
esor yllil - I made this to sum it all up.
ecam ytsrik - I see stupid people.....
nosredneh nagrom nhoj - Lol the down fall of our society. When something so stupid makes the news. With a " expert weighing in" lol too funny
reyemeztag ssenkrah refinnej - White/gold in this pic. On the company website the dress is clearly black/blue.
tteurp leahcim - People with bad eyes will see 1 color when its really another, kinda like people with lazy eyes don't see dbl. I see gold and white so its prolly blue and black.
ecarg dor - The lighting messed the pic up on the right...
nna ajnat - I'm actually appalled that this made national news!!! When we have other things of more pressing concern!!! Our soldiers at war, homelessness, hunger issues, ISIS I mean really shall I go on!!
nesral ettelliuorb netsirk - Wait a minute. I saw this yesterday and it was white & gold. Now, it's blue & black. What?!?
srebmahc nnyl eirrej - On my lap top its white on cel phone blue black
- Need for speed? A Senate panel has approved a bill that would increase the speed limit on Iowa (Type: link | Published: 2015-02-26T13:45:22+0000)
WOWT 6 News: Need for speed? A Senate panel has approved a bill that would increase the speed limit on Iowa interstate highways to 75 mph.
noel odranreb - Let's push for 90 mph
rapsak guod - No, Iowa drivers are horrible.
notnalb kered - How about they raise that stupid 55 mile hour speed limit on the rest of the highways, it takes forever to get across IA on the back roads.
elbeer evad - It won't matter because so many Iowa drivers are in the passing lane that you can't go that fast anyway!
tsagobra evets - Raise the gas tax, raise the speed limit. Good logic
tteurp leahcim - I'v been hit 3 times now while I was parked by nebraska drivers so I doon't wanna hear that crap lol. Speed limits 70 mph on i-80 till you hit city limits then it drops to 55 as of right now.
ssam sinned - People drive75 already so may as well pass it...it's 75 in Nebraska accidents didn't increase
neslo evad - There will still be the Iowa knuckleheads, who shouldn't have licenses, who insist on driving in the left hand lane going 55 - 60 mph.
nosliw sirhc - bout time !..think only state left where only allowed go 55mph..craxyness
tdnarb neb - Wow, they raised it to what everybody drives on 80 through Iowa anyway. At least now we can do 80mph and be reasonably safe from getting stopped.
seniag eolhc - Thank goodness. Go ahead and pass it. Nobody wants to spend a single solitary second in Iowa anyway
nesretep anaira - Darwinism at its finest.
nosam eki - They just added 10 cents per gallon gas tax, they will have more tax revenue if they let you drive faster. Is that not the goal, more government spending?
ffoh llewol - Also raise the major hwys to 60 or 65. Like hwy 34
rekat esahc - Great idea, although it should have been raised to 75 last time they wasted money on 70 mph signs and complining about it
lliwen nhoj - We should lower it to like 30 so the elder generation don't feel left out.
resiak nosrevaeb haras - Hell let's just make it an autobahn...raising it is ridiculous!!!!
htiek alemap - That's what the speed is here on the interstate- has been for a long time.
leut mit - 70 is fast enough!!
pihsneknalb leahcim - When they raised the speed limit to 75 in Nebraska, I was perfectly happy setting my cruise at 75 because that's what I usually drive anyway. I found that I spent a lot of time passing others who didn't want to do the speed limit. I don't see this changing much in Iowa either.
ttocs dlanor - No one goes 70 anyway, now they will go 80 which most of them go anyway. Especially Kansas and mo cars.

WOWT 6 News: UPDATE: A robbery suspect shot by police in Omaha Monday evening has died.Comments:
kninut gerg - Kleo most of "these stores" have insurance deductibles that are high so NO its usually not covered. And even if it was that doesnt mean its OK to rob them. U are risking losing life by doing so. Whether its by a police officer or citizen. DONT ROB PEOPLE=DONT RISK DEATH!! Hmm its pretty simple really.
eiram illek - I just saved money on my taxes by switching to dead repeat criminal
sarugerg .j mailliw - waiting for bleeding hearts to blame the police for shooting an armed man who just committed a robbery. i am sure that there will be the usual "he was a good father", "he was getting his life together", "he was looking for work", etc and this could go on forever. bottom line is that good people do not get shot because they do not commit crimes with weapons'
yorlim sinned - My sympathies to the officer
eiram illek - For everyone BASHING the OPD, if you ever find yourself in need of 911, please call someone else. People who commit crimes / break the law either know the risks or are too drugged out to care.
elgae dahc - Play stupid games, win stupid prizes...
mortsmloh nek - I have said it before and will say it again. Don't break the law no problems with law enforcement!!!
kooc assilem - But he was "turning his life around"!! LOL armed robbery is turning your life around??
.rs ankcem elad - Better to kill him then let him live the rob other day maybe having him kill some innocent person!! Send the message!!
rengaw icart - Bring on the cop haters
adaj adyak la - So everyone is happy that a man died?
nrojb sredna - Crime has gotten out of hand in Omaha. Although I never want to see someone lose their life, it can be necessary for an officer to use deadly force. The sad reality is that some of these criminals would kill you an instant for money or drugs and they need to be dealt with.
llivrah yrrehs - We all have to answer to God one day. Both the guy that was killed and you guys who are judging. Just saying.
oddo naes - Good save the tax payers money
reuab eiram - Good job OPD! One more thug off the streets.
notrohw asil - That's what happens when you break the law
nesneros deraj - Hey you rolled the dice, and this time you lost
keep eidde - That's was my cousins husband and they do a lot of meth and he probably was high out of his mind when he robbed the store
enna hsit - Maybe this will teach lowlife deadbeats everywhere not to take what isn't theirs. Sad for his family that they've lost a loved one, it would have made more of a statement if he'd had to live the rest of his days with his greedy hands removed.
eel ard - Im just curious why the criminal picture isn't plastered all over TV like the news likes to do, seems like pieces of this story is missing.
llessur eoj - Good!! One less to worry about!!! If you steal..you get shot!!!

WOWT 6 News: The AP is reporting President Obama will veto the Keystone XL Pipeline bill by the end of the day. Your thoughts?Comments:
stnel relyt - Noooo!!! I wanted to transport oil for another country through our heartland!!!!
nuohllac eibbed - Thank You President OBAMA!! Keep us all safe from this dirty deal. I have a personal thought on this KXL send it through KOCH Bros. Properties. Thanks again Mr. President people should be able to keep there homes and lands.
reyeb nor - YEAY more exploding derailed trains!
gniretied htebazile - I just want to point out there's already been an oil spill this year - 50,000 gallons into the Yellowstone River, the governor declared a state of emergency. Imagine this on a bigger scale...
yaws ynnhoj - If you support a Canadian company using eminent domain on AMERICANS to take their property you're a fool and a traitor. These oil soaked politicians should be tried and hung for treason.
dnomder wehttam - Thank goodness. Save our heartland and natural resources, and cut down on our dependency on unrenewable resources
ydissac latsyrc - Gotta protect our Ogallala aquifer! Clean water is 1 of our most valuable resources.
nosredna drawde - It won't matter they will get it done its just a matter of time
ydovdo nyliram - Aaron Sash, the end product from this pipeline is going to China. Do a little research.
ssiew annod - Why are so many people supporting something that will only provide temporary jobs, is not coming from or will be going to the United States??? It has already been said that all the oil has been sold overseas!!!
yrredlecm noj - We don't need it. We can't afford the damage when they have a spill. The country needs to continue to wean itself off of coal and gas. Wind and solar can do much more for us without the contamination of our environment.
ydovdo nyliram - Thank you Mr. President. This pipeline does nothing for us in terms of energy independence or job creation. We risk everything and gain nothing. This folks was the Republican priority bill right after the midterms. This was the most pressing issue they saw for Americans. It was immigration, or health care or ISIL. It wasn't even about Americans. It was about giving a foreign company imminent domaine over American landowners so they can refine the dirtiest crude known to man. Now ask what they were paid for their vote. Literally. the least was $125,000. Check it out.
baats kceb nosirrah - I'd like to veto Obama by the end of the day.
snikwah nor - Everyone with their heads buried in the sand might want to look at a map showing the pipelines already running across the country. Astonishing that a relatively short time ago, the Alaska pipeline was lauded for its contribution to our economy and country. And with a stellar record it has been just that...a boon to the nation. All you NIMBY people are hypocrites. You want the benefits but want to deny the process that makes it happen. If you are looking for someone who is out to harm the nation, perhaps you should look more closely at politicians.
rehcuob ynohtna - Obama sucks yet its republicans trying to pass it. Why are none of you talking about this?
rengew llewloc yllek - Thanks Warren Buffet! The railroad would be screwed. Not the best interest for the environment.
seniah nella - Yea been a pipeline going thru Nebraska for years no issues why is a new one so bad
ttiben-regiets inaj - thank you. why are the gop ok with foreign company,using eminent domain????
grebnefual ekim - Let's not create jobs and stimulate the economy
reztiws ramt - The end of days is coming. And when it does, many will meet their end at the tip of my blade.
