Re: “Police identify suspect, officer in carjacker shooting

The man drove the vehicle toward the officer. That lets us know he was a danger to the public and the officer chose to stop him. Had he not done so and had he hurt the officer or someone else we would be asking why the officer hadn't stopped him when he had the chance. What we have here is a wise officer who performed well under pressure.

Re: “Mayor sets talk on violence reduction

The crime problem will never be solved until people are educated enough to learn a job skill. If a person cannot read and write they can not even fill out a job application. Aside from this, most people can do well if they have a trade. Pulaski Tech is a good place to start but, again one must be able to read to successed. Another major problem is that we have boys raising boys and that never works. The men in this community have to step up. I am sick to my guts of political talk that never goes anywhere. You don't need a goal if you don't have a plan. Most people in politics have goal and that is to get elected.

Re: “Jack Lavey, 1932-2014

Jack was an outstanding lawyer and a courageous man. Saw a judge offer to put him in jail in Forrest City over his vigorish represention of a Black man back in 1970, when times were different. Jack never backed down. Proud he was my friend for over 40 years.
