slynn's comment history

Once again the Chattanooga Times Free Press has printed some very damaging information about Rev. Strong without any real proof. If this is an avenue the police are following up on, then no comment should have been made unless it was investigated and proven. The family and community are already having to digest this horrible crime without having to now take into consideration an accusation against the pastor. Rev. Strong was a wonderful influence on the community and tried to do all that he could to bring about a change in our area. Let us not forget that this man died at the hands of two individuals that wanted something he had. For one of the mothers to say she could see her child robbing the pastor, but not killing him, what mother would say that? Stealing is stealing and it goes against the 10 Commandments. Is she saying that it was ok to rob him? Does she not see this as a crime? I think that anyone who will steal from you will do other things that are horrible and worse. The paper said the older man had attended anger management class. Who certifies that you are ready to leave the classes? They obviously didn't work for him and to let him still walk among the people of this city is a crime in itself. To say that the government knew of her son's illness and did nothing is a cop-out. I am amazed at the number of children who are able to draw money off the social security under the disability clause of ADD or someother name for not taking responsibility for your child just acting out because he can. I can see where this is going and everyone else should be able to read between the lines of this also. Don't even let them play the crazy card! They committed a brutal crime and should not get off on a technical issue. If they would do this to a pastor who always tried to help others, think what they will do to just anyone on the street. Wake up Chattanooga and don't sit back and let this slide by. This is one time that I think they should follow thru on the term an eye for an eye.
