Hundreds gather in Athens at 'Justice for Trayvon' rally

@Scooby Doo: Whatever.. I did call you stupid. I was call stupid. I don't call people names because our opinions are different. You still on this. I've moved on. I'm not racist. I don't like to hear of anyone getting kill regardlless of race. I don't have time to go back and fourth about this. Everyone have an opinion and entitled to it. So let it go.

@silent_majority: Just to clear up things up a bit. None of us that making these comments were there. So no one really new what happened that night. We have different opinions but I am by a long shot from being stupid so whatever you all feel toward me again is a opinion. Don't call me stupid. I read your opinion, wrote how I felt but I didn't disrespect you so don't disrespect me.

@Scooby Doo: In my respond to you, you called me stupid. I'm not stupid. You don't know me. It's your opinion verses mine. Just like you don't know Trayvon. I'm not going to go there with you because I don't know you or anything about you. We have different opinions. People like you are so disgusting with the name calling. What maked me stupid? Because I disagree with you? Just difference of opinion. I can call you a few things too but what good would that do? NONE.

@Scooby Doo: That's such a stupid commit. You don't know anything about how he was raised. He was a kid going to the store. His demise happened because Zimmerman got out of his car and followed him. He was minding his business talking to his friend on the phone. Why can't you people see this and not. So you agree he should have been followed? Why? Because he was a young black kid. Just admit it. None of you want to admit that this was the whole issue that led up to the tragedy.

@fishin4u: If he had stayed in the car he wouldn't had anyone thing or anyone to fear. He started this and ended it with a childs life.

@DawgFan1988: Lets not go there. White people has killed black people for years and got away with it. Emmitt Tills, Medgar Evans just to name a few so before you start camparing, do a little history homework. It's all sad. Instead of going tit for tat, lets find a way to stop the violence and racism.

Athens police announce reward in hit-and-run of pedestrian

Yes another hit and run coward. At least there is a reward. My brother John Walker 111 was hit by a hit and run driver May 6th 2006 and was left on the side of the road after the driver got out of his truck, stood over my brother, got back in his truck and drove off. He's paralyzed from the waist down. No write up in the paper, no reward, no follow up. Just nothing to go on except a witness who said she think he was walking in the street. It was a rainy night at 1:30 in the morning so who knows. The police said if they catch him all they can do it give him a citation for leaving the scene of an accident. WOW!! He could have call for help. The witness tried to follow him but he tried to run her off the road. What's the charge for that? Someone know who did it. A family member or friend saw the damage to that truck. Well I hope they catch the person and they really wasn't aware they hit a person because that's cruel. The person who hit my brother knew he hit a person. He got out his truck to see and still drove off.

Athens bicyclist seriously injured in collision with drunk driver

My heart and prayers go out to the cyclist. I am glad the driver had the courage to stay at the scene of the accident and take responsibility for his actions knowing he had been drinking. May 5th 2007 a driver hit my brother John Walker 111 on Atlanta Hwy. at 2:30 in the morning as he walked home. The driver got out his truck walked over to where my brother was lying and got back into his truck and pulled off. Thank god someone was driving by and saw the accident. She called the police from her cell and tried to follow the driver to get his license plate number. He manage to get beside her in his truck and tried to run her off the road. She got scared and turned around to go back to help my brother. He got on the loop toward Walmart and that was the end of his worries. My brother who was very active working as a waiter in the restaurant business that he loved. There was no coverage on it in the paper until 2 weeks later when I reached out to the paper for help. The police said they have no leads except it was a 2004-2006 I think ford truck. They got that from the bumper that was left behind. My brother suffered a spinal cord injury, broken legg and head injury that caused him to almost die twice. He went through depression for a while because he is left paralyzed and on disability. He worked part time for a while at Dial- America to get out the house because being at home made him more depressed. Today he's in good spirit living in Louisiana with his daughter and grandchildren and he's back to his happy self. I wish the person who did this think about his actions everyday. It's so heartless to leave a person on the side of the road to die. The police also informed us if the person was ever caught they would only be charged with leaving the scene of an accident because the witness said he was walking in the street and not on the side. My brother don't have much memory of his accident except the bright lights and the driver coming over to look over him. He has put it behind him but I wish one day this guy get a consciouse but I don't it. He's going to get it back twice as bad when the time comes.

Athens murder victim loved by family, friends

@Jaki: That wasn't necessary. she have 7 children so what. People have children everyday. That has nothing to do with the fact that some heartless person took the life of another human being probably for no reason.

    Blog: Watching movies by myself

    Summary:  I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.

    No cartoons on racism

    As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
