Execute him? Yes. Let the state do it it, all nice and precise? NO. Let Sgt. Chapins' FAMILY do it. Eye for an Eye. Or better yet, with baseball bats
Hopefully, Sgt. Chapins' Family is better than that. It always amaze me how Americans quickly resort back to that EYE FOR AN EYE old testament talk when they feel it's convenient to do so. All other times, it's FORGIVENESS IS DIVINE.
Actually, an old rabbi once said, and he should know, Christians take that eye for an eye out of context to fit their own agenda. He stated the EYE FOR AN EYE was never meant to do physical harm against one who has committed harm.. That in fact, EYE FOR AN EYE refers to monetary compensation for the one or their family who was wronged.
oh yeah? stereotypes are sterotypes for a reason
Yeah! JessieLouTN--but that "stereotyping" would have missed Mathews, the cop killer, by 1K miles. After all, only those individuals sporting red ball caps with the letter "A" and dred locks commit crimes, right? Yep! That stereotyping and racial profiling is a phenomenal thang!
@sangaree aka 1980, get a job you dont get paid to talk about blacks all day, get a bull horn and go to these neighborhood that you run your mouth about and speak your peace, what wrong scared lil guy
I just read sangaree's post. I don't see where in the post this individual is talking about blacks. I took it the individual was referring to bad cops? Maybe you're too angry about something to fully comprehend?
Well, TN claims itself as an ultra conservative state. They were so angry about that black man being in the WHITE house that, like many ultra conservative, they didn't realize they were shooting themselves in the foot.
@“To put that many low-income people together breeds trouble and crime,” Rowe said Wednesday
They said "affordable housing" and not "low income housing." There's a huge difference. All the "affordable" housing I've seen around town the low income can't afford anyway.
If a stadium and ball field appears on the scene it will be due to the total makeup and face of Howard School as it now appear will cease to exist. Hint! Hint!
I'm in agreement with you nitwhit3. Not only that. If the cops beat this witness because of their emotions over Sgt. Chapin's death, then they have no place in the profession of law enforcement. Not only that, they've dishonored the life and death of a fellow officer through their deplorable acts. They lend credit to what others have been saying all along about law enforcement in this country. That is, they behave worse than the criminals.
@Unless all agencies operating in Chattanooga and across the nation can come to some uniform code of agreement regarding the use of unmarked cars during routine traffic stops, citizens will remain at risk of being robbed, raped or killed by criminals impersonating a cop.
When little Becky or Johnny from the berbs comes up missing, and Becky is found ravished and wandering aimlessly around, speaking in incoherent tongue "He said he was a cop!" Then and only then will the laws change.
@Friend Terry Base said Armour was a hard worker but had a history of confrontations with the shooter.
Base own words suggest he must know who the shooter is since he is aware of a history between the shooter and the victim?
