Wow! It took all this time for someone to finally grow a brain?! Unbelievable!!
What's the problem? Everyone in Chattanooga is related anyway. After all it's the SOUTH, dammit!! We're all kissin' cousins'. It's darn near impossible to not have a relative working in such a capacity as this.
Where in the story does it say the incident at Howard involvied a gun? The body of the story said the student had a "weapon." That could be anything from the butter knife to t toenail clipper.
Are these same owners now crying the same ones who worked overtime in past in their attempts to get other clubs shut down in their area? I recall the owner of the Comedy Catch crying and complaining the loudest against other establishments around and near his place of business not all that long ago. Those who go out of their way to dig holes for others comes to mind.
Parental involvement is key, but only if the schools are receptive to parents being involved. Many schools, although not openly, haven't been receptive to parental involvement. Of course, they won't admit this openly when the cameras are rolling, but it's the truth.
I also believe praise over punishment is key to studnet success. Unfortunately, in many of these low performing schools they remain too focused on punishment for everything. Which only cause the students to shut down and tune out over time.

But in order to achieve something of such magnitude one also has to wipe out the people who have any memory and knowledge of such history as well, right?
Out of all these years and all the alleged pollutants in the ground if they haven't killed the residents those residents have probably built up immunities to most all pollutants.
I think this is more about shaking down these companies of which the residents will see little to no benefits. They're just preparing a place where others will reap the benefits.
"After finding Favors' body Thursday, Jordan told police she left the house at 3726 Dorris St. about 7 p.m. and returned two hours later."
WTF?! Is the above a reporter's typo error or something? You come home find a body, leave then return? Either the above is an interesting tell tale or a typo.
"Ketron's bill says voters would have to present a photo ID such as a driver's license, hunting license or passport"
And what if an indvidual doesn't drive, doesn't hunt and doesn't have a passport? This isn't about combating voter fraud as much as it is about controlling the outcome of votes. Seems like the south is trying to sneakly regress back to its old Jim Crow habits.
dude_abides, there was a rape case involving a member of the local police department a few years ago. They claim that case couldn't be prosecuted because of statute of limitations. Or is that statute of limitation for such crimes only used when cops commit them?
