Were it not for the fact that Sergeant Chapin was so well loved/admired by the Chattanooga community, our emotions would not be so wound up. His wife has proven to be such a Christian about this entire event...let's at least try to be a little like her.
Sure I want to see all those involved in our Sergeant's murder brought to swift justice and face execution but we simply have to let the system do what it needs to do. We have no choice.
A 17 y/o son...how very sad for him. Parying that she rests in peace and may the courts bring the murderer to stern swift justice.
Two unique cultures clashing. One feeling violated, the other fearing someone different. So not necessary. These two groups would be better to solve their problems on a personal level instead of unloading on the law. Bet Ms. Jenkins is a good soul in reality, just like those who have lived in Cagle for a while.
Am saddened to read this article. Had surgery at Erlanger and felt so good about the medical staff. Very caring toward me, yet very friendly and personable. Why the board has to do things that leave doubt is way over my head. Hate the good old boy crap!
NoMyth, trust me it's not because of this that the US's credit rating was dropped. By the way have you read any intelligent/reliable information about what the entire debt issue really is? You don't seem like the brightest bulb in the socket.
veritas, leave this woman alone. She's a well educated human being. Personally am glad TFP has found her. Thank you very much!
This scandal is going to hurt the scenic city very badly. It gets worse and worse with few explanations, however littleman is not without error.
Listen to all the excuses. Almost 40 posts of one excuse after another. Why do the students at the 3 private schools in Chattanooga do so well and those in public school are typically well below average?
Read the posts, folks!
hey indian, wonder what would have happened had your "ancestors" been asked to leave the USA, upon their arrival? Would that mean you would not be here to voice your hatred?
gatoralan, so you focus on the "illegals." What about those who have lived in the scenic city most of their desperate lives who 'hit' the papers.
Folks we live in a NEW melting pot and we darn better start being more tolerant.
dave, you are correct to a point. Most of us are sons/daughters of immigrants no matter how far back the generations. Yes we do feel the economic pinch since many Latinos are 'working' and many "Americans" are not...perhaps not due to the fault of the Latinos either. There is really no reliable/valid method to measure that observation. We tend to criticize them when they become involved in substance abuse/crime, however, our immigrant ancestors were certainly not without their share of problems.
In the long run I don't see Latinos "leaving" anytime soon. We have become a bi-lingual nation. A note to those of you who 'condemn' Ms. Perla Treviso...now I ask you would you want to read an article about the 'Scotch/Irish Republicans' who reside in the scenic valley, written by a Latino? It works both ways folks. Furthermore I mentioned previously that Ms. Treviso is educated beyond what any of you could ever hope. Her education/insight is what qualifies her to report on a topic that she has knowledge. I don't know her however feel the CFP is fortunate to have her in their employ.
Before you cast stones at my opinion, think about it for at least a minute...which is the typical attention span of most who post here.
