Ironhorse: "By the way I'm so proud of our mayor Ron Littlefield..........on national television yesterday he forgets what state Chattanooga is in. "Chattanooga, GA"????????????????????????"

Maybe that little slip by the mayor wasn't an accident after all? Chattanooga may just break away from Tennessee and become a part of Georgia? Believe it or not, but when I first moved to Chattanooga many many years ago, most all of the advertising mail I received was address to Chattanooga, Ga.? You do know, don't you, Georgia was never paid for the most southern part of Chattanooga. Yes, the most southern parts of south Chattanooga bordering Georgia actually belonged to the state of Georgia at one time. They were once unincorporated areas Ga, I believe, that grabbed up by TN.

As to the rest of you complaining. Give the girl a BREAK! She was trying to be everywhere at once yesterday.Everyone wanted a piece of her. It's not her fault. If she'd turned down any of the offers the same ones bashing her now would have been calling her a snob for not showing up. GET A LIFE!

Was anything found to show someone actually fired at this officer? Let's see: In an earlier story it was stated the officer was near a construction site where construction work was taking place. Is it at all possible some debris of some kind may have hit and shattered his window? Just a thought, before everyone goes haywire and call out the 'guard.

Of course, if a rock hit his window instead of a bullet we'll likely not get any updates on the story. "Shots fired a trooper(not allegedly)" is much more sensational and tantalizing.

Since the jailers knew the man was suicidal why would they place him in a cell with an individual who wasn't capable of alerting them if the individual tried to commit suicide? That's where the incompetence. That's where the investigation should be focused. On the complete incompetence and disregard of the jailers for this man's safety. Maybe HCSO should look into hiring more intelligent jailers, or maybe just humane ones.

Why relocate them to other housing sites when those housing sites are targeted for demolition at some point too? HUD's plan is to get rid of public housing altogether. There is to be no more public housing subsidized by the federal government. At some point those housing vouchers are going to dry up too.

Is there any proof that someone actually fired a shot rather than some debris, a rock or some other object, could have just as well done the damage? Before anyone jumps to conclusion and innocent victims get caught up in the hysteria,be sure all the facts are in.

The title of the story should have the word "alleged" somewhere in there.

So when disaster strikes those GOP who preached the hardest about getting the federal government out of its business are now sticking out their hands. Like, "Get out of our affairs, but can you send money now, PLEASE?!"

@The one-strike law was imposed by Congress to ensure zero tolerance

That statement is not totally true. Congress may send down a mandate, but it's left up to the individual "discretion" as to how such mandates are applied. Other states have learned this the hard way when their public housing authorities were sued for applying measure that go against the very grains of the Constitution and what this nation is suppose to stand for. You can't have one law for the poor to follow and another for the rest of the country. That's considered unequal. It's those very same class, race and economic inequalities the Civil Rights Movement fought so passionately against. One would think Mr. Holmes would be aware of this since he's considered an "icon" of the Civil Rights Movement. So much of "icons."

I could have sworn it was the RepublicanCAIN'TMAKEUPOURMINDS party who opened the borders and overwhelmingly invited those "illegals" here in the first place. They claimed they were willing to do the jobs Americans refuse to do.
