I just love Chattanooga! Never lived there, but visit at least two or three times a year! My kind of a City!! Never attended the Strut but heard a lot about it! I really like the ideas and suggestions! The people there are too wonderful to allow it to die! I agree! Bessie was the Strut! a little creative thinking can bring great ideas and many many ways to honor her for her greatness! Don't be critical of the mayor, It was a good idea and would have worked if it were presented to the people in advance! I honestly believe that he wanted it to become a united Chattanooga effort and a way to join the communities together.
Another one still! To Lr103 Please don't categorize this issue racially! This is what it is! A useless no good individual who has no sense of decency or respect for anyone! This child is a victim! I hope and pray that this perp gets what he deserves. Doesn't matter what race he is, He is a sick individual! He needs a true child loving cellmate to remind him of the innocence he destroyed! I am praying that people stop preying on our children!!!! God Bless The Children! I agree with Nosense "So very Sad!"
Another one?! Wow! Our children are suppose to be our most precious possessions! This is getting worse instead of better. Why make a little one suffer or hurt like this? No need for this! Senseless is what it really is! Another family hurt by stupidity! If things were that bad, they could have been placed for adoption! But for heavens sake, not hurt or killed! This is terrible!!! May this little inocent child rest in peace! My tears are running for this baby!!
So you snapped when ask to perform a sex act huh? What about the last time? I m sure it wasn't the first time! Why not just get up and leave his house??? Oh! I forgot he locked you in!!!! No way out! Two grown men who could kill someone! And you couldn't get out!
Being poor, Mexican, black or white, is not a license to be done wrong. After reading the comments by some of the local folk, it is an no brainier that these folk are being mistreated. I believe it too! I know that living in public housing often brings stricter rules, but having your feelings hurt or cussed at or property destroyed is not acceptable. Having that many names on a petition is indicative of at least a problem on the horizon! Let's face facts, These officers are racist and they are using the law to their advantage! I fully expect a lot of comments about it but racism is written all over this matter!!! These people are poor, but still human and deserve some respect! I hope they fill a book full of names to by residents who have been mistreated too!
What's wrong with that? After all the Committee is trying redraw it to exclude certain folk! Why not an inclusive rendering of the same. I do not think it is racial but an all inclusive way of doing it would appear to be the best way to insure that everyone is equally and fairly represented. Two wrongs will never make it right! Seems that the B.C. has a real complaint!
Hey Richards! I like what you said! It is true! Unions have done more help for working class people that anything else in this country. Anyone who has worked for a union and then for a non union will tell you that the unionized jobs pay more and the employee's fair better. Unions helped open the door to equal opportunity and workplace fairness. Sounds to me that we seem to be forgetting that the companies didn't put fair labor practices and shorted work weeks or safety standards into practice until organized labor demanded it! I know that unions are the ones that made a difference it the life of its members by becoming a bargaining unit. Instead of individuals having to stand the wrath for asking for fairness, the unions took it up for them. I support the unions in this country and believe that they are here to stay as long as workplace fairness is in demand!
Hey Libertariana4Freedom! That flag also represented a deep hate for change! Which most southern whites identified with during that period of our history. This is my country too! I have rights just as you do! I respect your right to fly your flag, but when you lol about folk who have relocated here because of a lack of employment, I remind you that most of these companies are relocating to the south because of the changes that have taken place in regard racial harmony! Your flag does nothing for this but sew bad seeds! The only flag I honor is the American flag because that is the flag of these United States. The Civil War is over! Now you need to get over it too! You lost!!!!!!!!
Hey! This takes me back to the ol south days when they passed all kinds of legislation concerning black citizens. Now its the Mexicans. When will it all stop? Of course It was all done it the best interest of the state!! lol!! Racism is Racism in any form, and that is racist in it intent!!!!!!!! Seems to me that certain folk have an Axe to grind or something. All those folk want to do is work! Now we want to check their status to make sure they cant ride in a car with regular folk! Come on!! How can a state legislator pass this without being overtly racist!!
What a cop out! Accusing the Mexican people is not fair! Some are here illegally, but not all of them. Give them an equal chance! Those folk just want to get ahead. Seems to me like PR and Indian have something wrong with them!!
