Re: “Haslam Grants Clemency to Cyntoia Brown

She was convicted by Davidson county?

That's nashville.

All of a sudden I understand how this horrifically unjust sentence was laid on a non-white juvenile acting in self defense.

Still, I'm glad she's finally getting out, even if she'll never get those 15 years back.

Her conviction should have been overturned, not her sentencing commuted, but hey, that's Nashville for you.

Re: “'Pork Report' Targets ServiceMaster, County Commission, Megasite

This reads more like a hit piece on Memphis from Nashville's Beacon Center than anything else.

I mean, I get it, Nashville benefits from every smear campaign that hits Memphis, but why would the Flyer use it's platform to spread it?

Re: “Forrest Family Sues City Over Gravesites

You never hear about the Hitler family trying to pull this stuff in Germany... why is it tolerated from the Forrests here?

Re: “Memphis Man Gets Eight Years for Selling Heroin

Painkillers are a form of heroin, and doctors keep dealing that.

When will the doctors who are peddling heroin go to jail?

Re: “Former MPD Officer Faces Death Penalty on Federal Charges

I think it's time to seriously consider revoking the MPD's charter and ceding the job of policing to Shelby County Sheriff.

Getting robbed by a cop is like being murdered by a doctor; that's a "never" scenario.

Re: “Leaders Unveil a New Manassas, Safe for Bikes and Pedestrians

Any time the city wants to increase funding without raising taxes, all they have to do is start enforcing existing laws that protect cyclists from close passers and people who park in the bike lane.

I really wish they'd start, too.

Re: “MPD Director Refutes ‘False Narrative’ About Officers' Actions

Whatever percentage of people get shot by officers who knowingly hide evidence of their actions by turning off their legally required cameras, the ones who do get hit by %100 percent of a bullet.

There are instances of justified deadly force. When deadly force is justified, officers are armed with cameras to defend their actions with legal evidence of the justification. When officers don't use their cameras, it creates the appearance that their actions aren't justified.

All cameras, all on, all the time, no exceptions.

Any time Rallings want to man up and take responsibility for the public perception of his police force, he knows what to do.

He just doesn't have the balls to enforce policy because he's weak and needs to be replaced by a real cop.
