Kennesaw approves plans for mosque in strip mall

I wonder if the guy holding the "ban Islam" sign is a member of a cult too. We live in America, we have the right to worship any cult we want.

VIDEO: Death toll in Pakistani school attack rises to 126

Is it safe to say Islam is being high jacked by nut jobs? There certainly seems to be very little fight from moderates. Atrocity after atrocity, and all we hear is silence from those who are losing their religion. Will today's murderers be viewed as the Christians who killed and murdered during the Spanish Inquisition?

US Marine charged in Filipino transgender slaying

Brilliant. End someone's life because you disagree with their lifestyle. Hopefully, this guy will be able to spend the rest of his life in jail.

Park: Domestic turmoil reflects arrogance of American foreign policy

@Jerry NeSmith: If the Europeans were not overwhelmingly responsible for two of the deadliest wars in history; both within the last 100 years, I would have more respect for the European's opiniion on America's foreign policy. That being said, US foreign policy has left much to be desired in the last couple decades. In particular, the Iraq invasion was the worst foriegn policy mistake in US history.

Park: Domestic turmoil reflects arrogance of American foreign policy

Before Mr. Parks writes an opinion piece based on a foundation of misinformation, he should spend more time studying the details of the recent incidents. Mr. Parks, just like all the others who are filled with hatred for the police, is oh so willing to skip over the facts of the resent incidents, and jump blindly into police bashing. Mr. Parks has a simplistic view of police work. He views it as a video game, where a shot officer only need to press restart, and he gets a "do over". Unlike Mr. Parks soft job, a cops work is life or death. The police only have a split second to make a decision. Mr. Park likes to throw around the term "unarmed" like it is candy. How many officers have been shot by people who they thought were unarmed. The police do not have X-ray vision. They can't tell if someone is carrying a weapon. Why do people feel the right to resist arrest and fight with the police? Are they not the ones elevating the situation?

VIDEO: US protesters march against police slayings

"Hands up don't shoot". The fact protesters use this as a chant should tell everyone about the information level of the protesters. Don't let the facts get in the way of a good protest.

2 officers shot near Atlanta; gunman sought

Thank God for the police. Risking their lives to keep us safe, only to be cr@pped on by society. I wonder if there will be any protest against the gunman who shot these two.

Driving while black? App developers aim to help

Why would anyone chose to be a cop? Underpaid, under appreciated, and putting your life on the line for a society who seems to believe fighting with the police is a citizen's right.

Could 2015 be the year for medical marijuana in Georgia?

@davidfarrar: If you are going to legalize the use, why not legalize the sale of marijuanna? Collect the taxes for the sales and remove the illegal element.

UGA students seek real discussion on race on campus

@bchb: I do agree with your comment, but I think the use of these incidents as examples of injustice to blacks is way off target. Unarmed suspects do get shot by police. A black cop was just cleared in a case of shooting an unarmed white man. Was there an outcry? No, nor should there be. Instead of raising his hands like ordered by the cop, he ran and then turned and reached toward his pockets. There is no chance the cop knew what the guy was reaching for.

Pretty sad the symbol for civil rights in this country has become black males who feel the right to fight police. This says more about racial relations than the incidents in New York, Ferguson, and now Pheonix.

Protests erupt after decision in chokehold death

[quote][b]tomw[/b] -

"...don't resist arrest." Yeti imposes the death penalty for that, to be delivered on the scene without benefit of a trial.

[/quote]

Do you get shot in your profession? Police do. It happens all the time. It happened in Georgia today. People who resist arrest are escalating the situation. They are putting their lives at risk. Is this really a hard concept for people to grasp?

As far as Ferguson goes; the grand jury who heard all the evidence, didn't even find enough evidence to indict the officers. Of course, people who are anti-police are not going to let the facts get in the way of some good fun hate.

SC cop charged with murder in unarmed man shooting

Unlike Ferguson and New York, evidence was strong enough to indict this police officer. The system works.

Protests erupt after decision in chokehold death

You know a good way to not get killed by the cops? You don't resist arrest. When did resisting arrest become OK? Do people not understand police work is life or death? This is something you arm chair police, with your soft jobs, can't seem to grasp. Also, quit with the unarmed cr@p. Cops don't have X-ray vision. They have zero way of knowing if a suspect is carrying a concealed weapon.

Do what the cop says and shut up. Pretty simple.

I love the "hands up" chant. Don't let the facts ruin a good protest. This has turned into a sad joke. I wish the cops would strike for a week; these brats would realize how much they appreciate the police.

    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
