It would be interesting to know the number of people of other ethnic and racial groups who also died of cancer last year. Attempting to scare people into a study is the wrong way to go and makes them suspicious of your intent. In fact, it's a complete turn off when individuals or racial groups are constantly being told they're the sickest, most violent, most unhealthy blah blah blah. Get the point? Rightfully so, a particular racial group hasn't forgotten how they have always been used as experimental guinea pigs in the past, and will likely be used the same way again. Try a different approach if your desire is to get more people of a certain racial group involved.

Anyone who believes, or tries to convince others to believe, the private sector doesn't receive taxpayer money, or handouts from the federal government, is sorely naive. There is not a privately owned or established company that hasn't or doesn't receive government funding in some form.

I’m confused. All of this is too complicated for me. HERBERT K. LEA, Chickamauga, Ga.

Mr. Lea, it's a lot more complex than just a fast food restaurant owner expressing personal views on a matter. Anyone has the right to dislike anyone they so wishes, and for whatever reason. But when anyone use their money and influence around the world and into other country as a strategy and by proxy, where people who are gay or who are different are murdered for being gay and different, that crosses the line. That's the epitome of evil. That's not Christian or Christ-Like. That's inhumane, base and wicked. That's not carrying on the works and life of a loving Jesus. That's carrying out the works of the devil.

Eat all the chick-a-fil-A sandwiches you want. Just remember there might also be the blood of innocent victims between those buns.

With freedom of speech comes responsible.

But whites do have friends, black ones in fact, who live in black neighborhoods. Whites also have black relatives who live in black neighborhoods. Long before blacks could live in white neighborhoods, poor whites lived in and were made welcome in black neighborhoods. Whites traditionally owned businesses and got rich in prediminantely black neighboods. There are some pretty well known, wealthy and respected white Chattanoogans who got their start in black neigborhoods; selling their goods to black families. The Homestore, a grocery store once on the corner of 25TH or 26Th and Broad Street. Lee Pharmacy, a drugstore on the opposite corner of Broad Street. Scholze Tannery. To name a few.

Someone once said the best drugs can be found on the mountaintop. There's no reason to travel all the way down in some poor black neighborhood to buy drugs. A belief in anything different is condoning racial stereotyping, racial profiling and modern day segregation.

Well, this is off the subject, but this is a better place to ask it as any other. Has anyone heard anything about a woman dying last month after police raided her home looking for her son at a Chattanooga public housing site? She was said to have had respiratory problems and when she asked to be allowed back into her apartment to retrieve needed meds, allegedly they wouldn't allow her or anyone back in? Supposedly she later died at a local hospital. I've gone to all the local news sites, but can't seem to find anything on the story. Which is not surprising.

memphisexile said... I can tell from many of these comments that most of you folks don't know much about Signal Mountain, because according to the original story this party was on Edward's Point Road. That is not exactly an affluent area. It's definitely more trailer park than mansions and swimming pools.

But when you look at the names of those arrested and where they live, you'll find they actually are from the better areas of Signal Mountain. So they go down to the trailer parks to party, their parents has disdain for? Typical.

harp3339 said... Could it be that authorites on Signal are doing a better job of addressing a problem than their counter parts in other communities?

Nope! Actually, it's more like finally doing a better job of addressing a problem that should have been addressed decades ago. As anyone knows, this has been happening on these mountaintops and other better communities for decades. Only the poor are held to higher standards and undeer the microscope for scrutiny and punishments of jail prison time and paying fines they can ill afford. Why do you think the poorremain locked in a cycle of poverty? Their parents did it. Their parents parents did it. They past that self of entitlement behavior on down to jr. and missy.

I read in the Wednesday, May 24, newspaper that the Tennessee Walking Horse trainer, Jackie McConnell, will get six months' probation! What an absolute travesty of justice

So true, Ms. McCalla. I wasn't even able to look at one micro second of that film withouth being sick. I had to turn away and never watched the rest of that video. However, humans have done that and much worse to their fellow humans. Have even gotten caught in the act on their very own video cams, and still got off by having the right connections.

Horton Herrin of Dalton needs to take his own advice and use verifiable facts before spewing off his ignorance.

What's really hypocritical and laughable are all those politicians in support of drug testing actually exempted themselves from being tested from drugs under this law.

And the Florida politician who first sponsored this bill has a big stake in the very lab that does the drug testing. He originally owned it or was some top head in the company. Then he signed everything over to this wife to avoid the appearance of a conflict of interest. Plus, the drug testing won't prevent the individual from receiving aide. In Florida they assign the benefits to a family member as caretaker. You're all being had by these greedy lawmakers. They're laughing all the way to the bank and getting richer.

Ms. Corey said her office has handled hundreds of these self-defense cases — at least three or four every month. The law constantly challenges the authorities, with people citing it for everything from bar fights to road rage. “We’ve lost Stand Your Ground motions that in my experience showed the shooter should not have shot,” she said. “Stand Your Ground needs a second look.”
