About 99.9% of those who frequent that discussion board mentioned in the article are cops, married to cops, related to cops or in relationships with cops. The board moderator is LE. Therefore, of course most comments will be bias in favor of cops such as the screen name Justin Thyme seemingly makes excuses for the six cops.

This story was uplifting and inspirational until the mother proceeded to boast of her daughter's accomplishments at the expense of tearing down fellow Howard students. She doesn't even realize that she's pretty much committed the same as so many others who have bad mouthed the school over the years. She also doesn't realize that bad mouthing Howard was a part of a bigger plan. The plan of gentrification. Those suburbinites eager to return to and establishment themselves in what's now the inner-cities don't want their children in such close prosimity and attending school with such a school with a negative reputation. AS usual, the targeted have once again and historically walked right into a trap by bad mouthing their own.

I was disappointed, but not surprised, that Corker refused to support Sotomayor. Hopefully, he'll realize there's more than just his southern roots and Tennessee conservative constituents he needs to impress.

Was the only reason this charge was sustained is because a fellow officer reported it? The other reports of abuse were likely reported by civilians and that's why the prior accusations of abuse were not sustain by internal affairs. Most accusations reported by civilians aren't sustain unless there's a suspicion the civilian might take legal action or they have legal representation. That's the real reason most people resort to suing, because they already know that's the only way to get the depts. attention.

misinformation, again. opinionated1. The kid was onl 5'1". He was not 6' tall.

If you're going to look into the background of the mom and charge her with neglect because her son was somehow able to get hold of a gun, don't stop there. Look into the background of parents whose children drink and drive then wreck the family vehicle when they wrapped the vehicle around a tree taking a curve too fast and killing everyone inside. Look into the background of the parents whose son, drunk driving, and continues to get caught drinking and driving, who slammed into a vehicle on or around Signal Mtn. killing one occupant and seriously injuring another. If all parents were held equally responsible for what their kids do behind their backs, they'd be a helluva lot of parents charged with neglect and spending time behind bars.

Everyone already knows much of the local black clergy is financially controlled by the local power structure. Their hands so deeply in their pockets they have to say what they've been instructed to say. It was that way in Chattanooga when many of the black clergy denounced Dr. King, and it remains that way today. I wondered why the NAACP stepped forward in such a case when they rarely do and only after Mr. Abdullah's organization had already stepped in. I figured it was to better control the situation and itss outcome.

Why are there no picks of the accused? If this was some average citizen his/her picture would be splattered all over the media repeatedly and for days on end.

It's obvious this man is being targeted and harassed by these "neighbors" on the pretense of reclaiming their neighborhood. It's the new form of bigotry with a noble cause attached to make it appear noble.

Until this victim takes a stand even if it means taking legal action, this form of bias and harassment will continue. Their only strength is they've formed groups and work in numbers. Otherwise, they're weak and what they are doing might even be illegal. At times, they've even duped members of the police department to take up their slack by harassing innocent citizens also.

This is the updated version of racism, hatred and bigotry without all the signs openly posted in the past. Evil only triumphs when good citizens sit back, do nothing and allow it to continue to happen. Surely, some human rights or civil rights organization can look into this. Or even the federal government needs to be called in to look into some of these 'gentrification' sneakly going on here.

Their definition of "gang" have so many flaws it's scary. Sounds like those round up of "terrorists" only to later discover more than 89% of those accused never had any ties to terrorism.

So, according to this article citizens are to believe that: I. Anyone sporting a certain color on a certain side of town is in a gang. II. Anyone with a tatoo is in a gang. III. Of course, skin color plays a big roll in that decision. IV. Anyone young person speaking in a certain slang dialect is in a gang. V. Who gives a certain type of handshake is in a gang. VI. Has been arrested before is in a gang. VII. A multiple arrest record increase the chances you'll be accused of being in a gang, regardless. VIII. The list can go on and on, because it seems once again an entire generation and ethnic are being targeted and exploited so someone(s) can make a name for themselves. IX. They took some of what can often be considered the norm for certain ethnic groups interacting with one another/mixed in a little extra, made it appear illegal activity and created a theme around it. X. This is why ACLU and other organizations remain more critically needed today than ever before.

During his presidency, one thing Bush tried to warn is that blacks need to give up that "minority" term. In that one sense he was truer than ever before. The term "minority" hass become a trick even trap word for blacks many don't yet realize and will be used against them. As America becomes more and more racially and ethnically diverse, the term "minority" has come to be all inclusive. Even for those America has never persecuted, discriminated against and oppressed on its own soil. Whose descendants were never held in bondage, segregated, lynched for simply the color of their skin. Now, the term "minority" is being slying used and has come to represent almost anyone. Even those from European countries, Middle Eastern countries and even some African countries America and local communities readily embrace of America's black population. I hope that the Rev. Jesse Jackson and others of his status realize this. That again, they're working overtime so that others will come to enjoy the fruits of their labor. That those intended to benefit will be left behind in the dust.
