Re: “At press conference on 10 Commandments monument destruction, Rapert takes ACLU, Freethinkers, local media to task for 'fomenting hatred'.

Mr. Rapert is a triggered snowflake in need of a safe space.

Did I do this correctly?

Re: “Judge explains ruling against city of Little Rock for eviction of apartment tenants

Uh, leasehold does create a property right for the tenant, and therefore a government deprivation of such property right without effective pre-deprivation or post-deprivation hearing is indeed a due process violation. It's almost like you didn't read the opinion which cites both Arkansas and US Supreme Court precedents for such a property right.

Your burning apartment example would clearly be within Judge Gray's "extraordinary situations" in page six of the opinion.

Right to redress a government official should not be limited to those with whom the government official agrees, Tucker.

Re: “Senate defeats resolutions on amendments to prohibit same-sex marriage and ban abortion

"Rapert said marriage was not a fundamental right because the essence of marriage is the ability to reproduce and the Loving decision had said as much. 'History is on my side,' Rapert said."

"Marriage is one of the "basic civil rights of man," fundamental to our very existence and survival." Loving v. Virginia, 388 US 1, at 12 (1967).

Re: “Ten Commandments monument public comment meeting contentious as committee member tells speakers their comments will neither help or hinder the process.

Should be an easy case with the current makeup of the Supreme Court (if it gets there, it likely won't). McCreary County v. ACLU is much more on point than Rapert's wishful thinking that Breyer's "it's been there for 40 years" reasoning in Van Orden v. Perry is the controlling precedent.

Pleasant Grove City v. Summum is going to kick out any attack by a group like the Satanic Temple. But an attack like the one in Oklahoma will likely prevail.

Re: “Football, prayer and Jason Rapert

FFRF may not have authority in Arkansas. But the Supreme Court of Arkansas does. And they've already spoken on this exact issue in Santa Fe Independent School District v. Doe.

Re: “Debtors' prisons are for kids, too, including in Arkansas

I've seen it over in the eastern counties plainjim. Not necessarily that high, but I've seen juveniles go to detention because fees weren't paid.
