McGinty's Mailbag: Lululemon Trial, Popcorn Tax

In the mailbag, we had reaction to testimony in the Lululemon murder trial -- not about Brittany Norwood's horrible crime, but the fact that two Apple store managers right next door heard Norwood killing Jayna Murray through the walls and didn't call 911.

Peg from Alexandria isn't surprised:

"Have you ever shopped at an Apple store?? The employees are so self-absorbed that if a customer dropped dead in front of them, they'd simply step over the person. Their late Founder taught them well and, frankly, his demise was the only one they care about. It comes as no surprise to me that they heard the cries for help coming from the adjacent store and did nothing."

Wow, Peg...you know, before today I would have argued with that assessment and called it grossly unfair. But the lack of an explanation or any apparent remorse from those two Apple store employees does not help their case.

Alexandria Teacher Sentenced To 30 Years For Child Porn

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (WUSA) -- A former Alexandria elementary school teacher was sentenced to the maximum 30 years in prison for producing child pornography. 

Justin Coleman, 36, of Falls Church was charged back in April, for producing videos of himself engaging in sexually explicit conduct with two unaware, underage girls.

Officials say Coleman was a teacher with a secret life.  He had more than 75,000 images and 1,000 videos of child pornography. Some of the pictures depicted the faces of his students at Alexandria's John Adams Elementary School.
