Re: “The Monday line

Re:Buckner. It may be that she can defend a vague loophole. She cannot justify misrepresenting county delinquency facts to mobilize media for vengeful, politically motivated grandstanding designed to harm a viable business whose paychecks dont bounce in a struggling economy.

Re: “New DNA tests exclude West Memphis 3

In cases like this, the perpetrators (officials), if found to have
conspired, colluded or dumbassed their way to an incorrect conviction,
despite counterintuitive evidence, should serve the sentence
served by the falsely accused victims. Judges are humans--not gods.
Too often, they threaten our freedoms and abuse their power for political,
monetary and egotistical gain/preservation. I've witnessed horrific sentencing decisions
and stunning incompetencies too many times. Shame on the protection
of elitism and the caste system within our judicial system.

Re: “Cop shoots armed man near River Market

The River Market is growing. Given the business volume and tax revenue generation represented in the area, it is important to solve problems rather than exhibit shortsightendness and absolutism. We need more police presence. Hire them.
Dont shoot-taze, then try them in a court of law. Ignore white and black racists.
No one deserves to be beaten because they didnt engage in conversation. Socially appropriate behavior is the goal. Dont defend the behavior of violent people...black or white. The Public Safety Bill is not made worthless by these events. Juanita's application should not be denied because of these events. Spend another 200-300k
on police protection. Where can it come from? Audit entitlements. Implement austerity programs. Government should be accountable for intelligent spending as we are. Be more careful with contract awards. I could go on but the point is made. This district generates a hell of a lot of revenue. Apply the revenue to real solutions. Finally, do be very careful not to profile. Facts are facts. Let it be...but remember, fear and suspicion begats hatred. There are many, many good AA kids living, working and going to school in this area...just coming to have dinner and catch a show in the RMD. One group of reckless youths dont need to write the key chapter for race relations in the RM-Little Rock. Do not punish these kids on a wholesale level. Do not defend assaulters because of skin color, either. Find the few and deal with them. Acknowledge the value of the RM to LR. Every nonviolent human being should be welcome and treated respectfully.
