Dodd: 'Policing for profit' through asset forfeiture

I agree whole heartedly. I remember feeling really bad about an elderly woman who lost her house because her son had been accused, and not yet convicted, of selling drugs out of the home she's lived in for over 50 years.

Couple robbed at gunpoint in downtown Athens

Bethel and downtown Athens are dangerous places to walk even in a group. Why? Thugs lay in wait and stalk. Something should be done about this.

Winder man's neighbor derails phone scam

I wish there were a remote island somewhere for these meth mouths and crack heads to spend the rest of their lives in bliss with as much and as many drugs they want. May they never return to civilization.

Convicted murderer sues state over prison porn ban

So what about the rights of the guy he killed? Pink took them all away, including the right to breathe. Seems prison is not prison when you can get more behind bars than on the outside, even with a job.

Dallas nurses cite sloppy conditions in Ebola care

Left in an open area? Worked with or around the patient without protective gear? Changing protocol, or no protocol, you expect people who have such important responsibilities to have common sense.

    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
