Where were the kids parents and why the hell did we let this sicko out of prison on his first conviction of child abuse & neglect in 2000?
In this article they say "it's Chattanoogas 50th shooting", but in the originical article about the Friday shooting they said it was the 89th.....
Why don't we get a time of shooting, where the car came from (private lot or person to person) and what kind of car was it? And isn't their an officer at the Mapco on 3rd and Holtzclaw 24/7? There is one if not 2 or 3 every time I'm there getting chicken! (and that's at various hours coming to and fro the barracks).
CHIOK_V, you need to remember this guy had an ATTEMPTED first degree murder charge (and an additional assault charge 5 months later) 2 years before this and was server 11/29 then probation for 5 years! He had a single DUI and 2 prior 'speeding/driving on revoked licenses' before he killed Maddux, between the time of his attempted murder. This is his 3rd DUI and driving on revoked license and resisted arrest!
I love how the 3 white guys that blew off roman candles in the East Lake Courts are looking at getting 'attempted first degree murder charges' and this guy has killed one man and nearly killed another and is still on the streets!
It irritates me when I get back from overseas, I have to get a part time job while I am home to survive. However, I drive through Wilcox and Citigo and see the section8 housing and the 'inner city taken care of citizens' driving Cadillacs, Chrysler 300s, and Yukons. And I have trouble filling up my 190K 1999 Ford F250.
TNVOLS76, with the Black man who shot the guy at the local service station, he had a prior violent criminal history and in a gang. the white male that hit the Unum Employee had a traffic violation record and they put him on a longer prohibation period. It could be because he actually works and is able to pay the court costs, where as the thugs in gangs only take money from society whether it be the free healthcare, foodstamps or our tax dollars paying for their habitual court hearings. So as much as I hate to say it's about race, they also see how much people contribute to society and how much they would cost being in prison.
This guy is disgusting. I was at Pickett's court hearing 2 days after my birthday in 2009. He had an 'attempted first degree murder' charge (out of his 50 previous charges of drugs and domestic violence) and Judge Steelman dropped the charges to aggravated assault (11 months behind bars). Don't you feel safe in Chattanooga? Bet the police won't wanna pay .30 cents a mile on that car!
Our November electric bill was $140, which is around average. We got out bill for the past month and it was $260. We called EPB and they were trying to blame the weather and asked what our thermostat was set on. I explained it was set on 74, but we had gas. They then asked if we had Christmas Lights on our home, and I told them we had no Christmas lights, just a pre lit 7' Christmas Tree and were out of town for nearly a week during Christmas. 3 days later we had our meter "reread" and were billed $117.
