Re: “Cops and juries

Autumn, it was good to hear your perspective. I typed a response a couple of times, but could not get the wording right. I am not an attorney. I know how I feel, but I have never been in some peoples shoes. I do think there is good and bad in all of us. Yes, unjustified killing of people is wrong to me. There was that strange timeline at the trial, and the video that his girlfriend live streamed on Facebook. What did we do before we had phones that recorded in real time? I know there is police brutality towards certain groups of people. I know that the police cover for each other. It is great that there are video cams on cop cars and on their uniforms. There are also some good cops that are allowed to be good because their dept. supervisor and his supervisor and the mayor allows that to happen. We were making good progress on prison reform, different police training, not locking up mentally ill people in prison, fairer drug minimums so judges could do what they thought was right, and then Jeff Beauregard Sessions III decided he wanted to roll back time and the country about thirty years and lock everyone up so for-profit prisons can make more money. Beauregard is a mentally twisted twerp and dangerous to society. It is not a perfect world and never will be, but I resent the politicians who are working for lobbyist that want to destroy the country and undo all the good work that human beings are doing to make the world a safer place for their children to live. No one should have to worry about their child being harassed, incarcerated or shot because of their skin color or that their child will not be protected by law enforcement when they need protection. We should make it harder to kill people, not easier. Social injustice can only happen if society gives permission for it to happen. Sounds strange, but I read that when reading about religious groups in the 16th and 17th centuries going on crusades to burn and drown women because they might be witches.

Re: “Class action lawsuit over Huckabee robocalls rolls on

I wonder why Sarah Huckabee Sanders was not picked as Sean Spicer's replacement ? I hope Huck buys a permanent house in Tennessee, but maybe not, I have relatives that live there. Does he not see the news media making fun of his stupid video clips or hear the deranged words that come out of his mouth? I truly believe he has a mental illness disorder that stops him from being self-aware. In the mean time, until he is locked away, he will continue to harm people and society with his phony religious crusades that promote hate. Wonder if he got his house in Florida paid off.

Re: “Monday's open line

I don't have anything against Melania Trump or the new Mrs. Mnunchin. From the photos I saw, they have nice bodies and they are a lot smarter than I was in achieving financial security. Mrs. Pence, bless her brainwashed heart, is a lost cause. I am only concerned with how long I will have to suffer before the inhumane desires of their creepy, dishonest, incompetent, criminal husbands pass enough laws or explode enough bombs to wipe the human race from the face of the earth. Call me selfish.

Re: “New analysis from Congressional Budget Office: 22 million would lose coverage

None of us should have to tell the Arkansas government that providing medical care for sick children, is the right the to do. Most human beings know that.

Re: “VA nurses picket over working conditions

The VA employees picketing are correct. Understaffing at the VA hospital creates an environment where accidents happen. The people in charge of funds, which is the Arkansas Legislature, are not listening to people who have written letters, signed petitions and exhausted all the proper channels to voice their concerns. I thought Bo Ryall was a lobbyist for the Arkansas Hospital Assoc. He claimed last year that he would financially support the passage of SJR8 on the Nov. 2018 ballot. Now he is concerned that all of the Medicaid cuts will reduce reimbursements to hospital emergency rooms, which will be some people's only access to medical care. It is a dumb move on the governments part to defund Planned Parenthood clinics, which provide services to low-income men and women. The governments inability to use commonsense reasoning or gauge future consequences, will create a healthcare public safety hazard for everyone.

Re: “Arkansas officials sued over efforts to extradite man wrongly arrested

"his detention was prolonged by actions of the Arkansas officials." This injustice done to Mr. Soler should bother all law abiding citizens. The Arkansas Governments over-zealous desire to detain and incarcerate everyone is a threat to innocent citizens. The only thing I blame San Diego law enforcement for, is being stupid enough to take the word of any Arkansas official. They should have known better.

Re: “Supreme Court orders Arkansas to stop birth certificate discrimination

I think the birth certificate ruling benefits the child, and that is a good thing. Same-sex partners want to provide the same legal protection for their families that opposite-sex partners provide for their families. Why did the Arkansas Supreme Court, and the AG, who normally ignore medical evidence and science, decide in this particular case, to base a decision on biology? Family Council needs to take the word "family" out of their name. The only group that seems to be concerned for the child, is the same-sex couple, who obviously loves their family enough to fight for them all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.
