Great editorial Bruce. The video camera doesn't just catch bad cops doing bad things....it also catches criminals making false statements about what cops did or didn't do to them. The camera works both ways. It is beneficial for a cop to wear a camera to protect them from slanderous accusations.
Isn't it premature for this article? Budget cuts have not happened yet, and according to the Trump administration the "needless" programs are to be cut....like programs to monitor the sleep patterns of snails...or bridges to nowhere. Seems like scare mongering. I donate to meals on wheels and I find this article very distasteful and partisan.
One of the reasons I don't often read the Flyer and especially comment..is because there are a lot of really rude people who comment at the Flyer - like you - who prefer to make personal insults when they can't come up with a legit comment on whatever subject matter is being discussed.
Whatever. The left will always see events the way they want to see them - regardless of the facts.
The comment "A white man told you to chill, so you best chill." makes my point: Everything doesn't have to be seen through the prisim of racism. I am speakiing as human being, as a American.
It amazes me how all the people in this article have transposed their paranoia to President-Elect Trump. Yes, he said Muslim immigration should be stopped until we can vet them properly. He DID NOT SAY register every Muslim. Trump DID SAY he wanted to deport the "criminal" illegal aliens...and he has already stated that a pathway to citizenship for other illegals is the best way forward. I'm not sure what African Americans don't like about Trump's - except for that he isn't black. He has been very clear about wanting to focus on the inner city jobs, crime an education and he specifically courted - and won - more black votes than any other Repiblican in history. People need to calm down. Trump isn't a "normal" hard right Republican. In fact, many people within the party aren't sure he isn't an independant. He has had a lot of Democrats visiting in Trump Tower and has already appointed 2 Democrats. Chill folks....
I totally agree with the Peabody. As long as they spend money in the city it is great to have them. Why even suggest that Memphis discriminate against them?
