What I am about to type The Lafayette Underground does NOT want anyone to read. They (The Lafayette Underground ) have removed this information from their website several times and have also done so from their Facebook page and have banned me several times from posting it. However the following people make up the Lafayette Underground. And I am sure that there are more that are affiliated but these are those I can assure people that are 100% confirmed identities. Those people are Les Coffey former owner of the Peerless Woolen Mills building in Rossville. He is the man that primarily funds the website. Or did so til a few months ago. Lucas "Luke" Hoffman , Michelle Haines Sipsy and husband Brian Sipsy . Brian Sipsy was terminated from his job at the Walker County Sheriff Department for using a computer to type articles on either the Lafayette Underground website or the Facebook page, possibly both. When his job was to be a jailer . We all know from the above article that Kristopher Marks is affiliated but his wife Katie is as well. Victor "Vic" Burgess, Michael Lovelady owner of both the One Eleven and Chattanooga Street Tavern, also the same man that owns the entire "Mars Theater District" in Lafayette Georgia is also a contributor. Lastly the man that founded the Lafayette Underground ,former Lafayette High School Band teacher/director David Beckwith. He was fired and somehow avoided criminal prosecution after it was found out that he was having inappropriate relations with a then student in roughly 1996-1997ish. Which is more than likely why he's so pissed of at the City of Lafayette but the man needs to thank his lucky stars he isn't in prison for having relations with a student. The Lafayette Underground's current IP address traces back to the Fulton County District Attorney's office. Which is an obvious IP mask. Go to your start menu, click on program search type cmd to open the command prompt then type in tracert www.cityoflafayettega.com and what will pop up is an ip number next to the phrase "tracing route to cityoflafayettega.com and will show the IP number 22.214.171.124 the following "HOP" IP numbers are those of contributors that login the backdoor of the Lafayette Underground website. Those change daily. But the main IP does not. I will be contacting the Fulton County District Attorney's office to inform them that a website is using their location as a mask for their IP so that it can be traced back to their office and not the actual owner of the Lafayette Underground is registered in the name of.
SeaSmokie59er and Happywithnewbulbs, the fact that the Free Press is a private business and isn't a form of Government is every reason why they aren't allowed to prevent people from exercising free speech. If they're going to allow some comments on some stories but no comments on others, due to the fact that they don't like the fact that common,everyday ordinary people are "schooling" them on facts left out of articles and what not, that's violation of civil rights. Regardless of their purpose for it. Just because a privately owned business makes a rule or regluation doesn't mean that it's legally binding and supported by law. Take Walmart for example, they use to make employees sign a waiver stating that they won't start a union for better work conditions. Walmart had to stop that though because creating a worker's union is a form of petition and protest,and demanding employees to sign that document is a violation of their first amendment rights. As for a court ruling, their never has been such of a ruling by the Federal Courts Mr/Ms/Mrs Bulbs.In closing, if The Free Press doesn't want a lawsuit, they'll get rid of this policy , I've already consulted with my attorney on this and I for one would definately have a case.
Ok this is going to end up causing the Times Free Press to be slapped up side their head with a BIG FAT lawsuit. Why? Here's the big party pooper for whomever decided to come up with this policy.Our United States Constitution's First Amendment clearly states “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances." Now here's the part that's the BIG party pooper for the Times Free Press...since Congress shall make no law,rule or regulation prohibiting the free exercise of Speech,a lowly newspaper can't either. Due to the fact that a newspaper has NO regulatory authority what so ever especially any more so than Congress. All I can really think of that the Times Free Press is allowed to do is to reject comments that violate the exceptions of Freedom of Speech (Libelous,Slanderous comments,threats and obscene comments.)Other than that, it's violation of Civil Rights.And as for their facts, the Times Free Press has the same quality of "facts checkers" that did the report on George H.W. Bush's military records years ago.
Nicole apparently you're NOT a parent. XGSBOSS,it would suck for you if my attorney's office managed to find out whom you are and we file a lawsuit against you for slandering me, assuming I'm a child predator;wouldn't it?
For one Nicole I've spoken to several people that have been affiliated with Kids 4 Christ,and prior to all this I'm sure they would have told you that their is a CONSTANT attitude problem with the kids they deal with.Operative phrase here, A CONSTANT ATTITUDE PROBLEM.So much for this organization being good for kids, if it was such a great organization they would be able to reach through to these kids and turn their lives around instead of these little piss ants continuing to be like they are.
As for you Jay, as I stated above,go to the City of LaFayette Police Department and ask for copies of the case files surrounding the investigation of all of those fires ,you will see that from day one of those fires being determined Arson that those fires were investigated,NOT just when these fires happened in the "nicer parts of town". Also,go back on LaFayette Underground's website and search for the allegations against an innocent teenage kid that was FALSELY ACCUSED by LaFayette Underground, MOST LIKELY Kristopher Marks wrote that article. This teenage kid was FALSELY ACCUSED by LaFayette Underground for breaking into vehicles,stealing things from these vehicles and vandalizing. Although no such arrest had taken place of any such teenage kid. So there's your false information buddy ! Cram that down your pie hole nimrod! Booyahh BEEOTCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
First and formost "extortion" is flat out slanderous of an accusation in this particular case. Mr Clift was NOT attempting to obtain financial gain from Kristopher Marks. What Kristopher Marks has done however is support and aid in the slanderizing of SEVERAL city of LaFayette Police Department officers. By supporting a person whom wishes to sit by and criticize instead of be apart of a solution,slanderize the investigation efforts of an entire Police Department and one of their best Detectives to date at least in my opinion.
As for the continuous subject of Christianity being a subject at hand here, for those whom believe in Jesus Christ and profess themselves to be Christian. The Holy Bible clearly states to NOT do wicked. "Abstain from all appearance of evil." 1 Thessalonians 5:22, and the wicked or evil act is blatenly lying on LaFayette's finest. When "LaFayette Underground" stated that the City of LaFayette wasn't doing anything about those fires that were being set in those abandoned houses;that is a lie. I challenge anyone to prove me wrong by asking for the police files in regards to them.They are available via the Freedom of Information Act, and you will see that each and every fire was investigated. I do believe that Exodus 20:16 clearly states "Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour."
For those whom still ask why is religion the subject? Simple Kristopher Marks is affiliated with one of the most hypocritical "religious" organizations in all of Walker County. That as this article states being Kids 4 Christ. And religion in this subject is a vital subject because if you're a person that is suppose to carry Christian principles, you're to stick to them to the best of your ability.(At least that's what the bible says!).And for a man that's a professed "Christian" to turn around,break his vows he made to God the moment he decided to give his life to Christ,then turn around and do what some Christians would call the "Devil's work" just means that he's a hypocrite,a liar and is more than likely doing a LOT worst and should be FORCED to give up the identity of the LaFayette Underground,and everyone affiliated considering the fact that this person and his "contributors" have done NOTHING but slanderized a LOT of honest people ! I am with Mr Clift 100% on this, I demand the END of LaFayette Underground's slanderous lies !
