Good riddance. I might consider becoming a subscriber again...since she was the reason i dropped my subscription. She was a racist, race baiting, opinion writer...nothing more.
It my understanding that the only black male that was attacked was the security guard. Am I wrong in that? If that is true then this should be a hate crime since they only attacked him to stop from getting arrested.
That's a nice thing to say about him. Something positive...to offset the fact that he is a blight on almost any community he lives in. Even more so to those neighbors that are unfortunate enough to live near and/or next to him.
Since I have moved to Memphis, which around the time of the accomplishments Les speaks of, the only changes I have seen that I personally actually care about is higher taxes right along side cuts in services. Even when the housing bubble was ready to burst...meaning the city had more money than ever off property taxes...somehow my garbage collection went from 2 days a week to 1 day a week. We have recently disavowed our responsibilities to the Memphis city schools...which means we should be flush with cash from a bill we no longer have. Oh and I am fully aware that I will still be paying for those schools through County taxes, but where did all that money go!?!?!?? I think it was north of $80 million dollars a year we spent on MCS?!?!? Yet brand new inspection station have been closed! Services within the fire department have been cut back (ladder trucks, etc.)! We weaseled out of paying for one of our most expensive bills and yet we are still broke?!?!?!?
The inmates are running this insane asylum we call Memphis. Oh and I have to agree with the fire department on one issue...during all of this we can afford to build a bike bridge across the mississippi?!?!? To go where and why? I fully support bike lanes...but one to Arkansas??? Seriously???
The problem here in Memphis is that people have been told not to plant, but still get paid, for so long...that no one care's about planting anymore. Heck them may not even remember how to plant...so what's the point in talking about wheat or corn?
The only way this lady gets voted out is if the national media picks up her story and guilts her constituents into doing the right thing, which is voting the prejudiced witch of a woman out of office. I have been sending her story to CNN and Fox over and over hoping they will pick it up on a national level. Even the NAACP would have to denounce her at this point. She isn't the solution to racism, she is the perpetuating cause of it.
Why should they keep quiet. If I was a parent with a kid in that school I would want to know how often a child brings a gun to school.
