Police: Athens woman stabs cheating boyfriend

I can't imagine why he would want to cheat on her.

Winterville man charged with shoplifting

The only way he could have made this theft more obvious is if he would have drove his car through the doors to load his stolen loot. What a genius! Just say no to drugs.

The way the Falcons are playing this year, I'm sure he is not the only player using drugs.

UGA students robbed in separate Athens incidents

There should be a requirement that all housing projects be built 50 miles from any civilization. This way they could just rob and steal from each other.

Athens inmates find relief from stress and anger through yoga

[quote][b]Sean Arington[/b] - @iheartathens: If punishment deters crime, why do we still have so much of it? Perhaps compassion and healing are another approach we might try? WWJD?
[/quote]

Programs like this is exactly why we still have so much crime in Athens. If these low lifes would receive real punishment, then they may actullay be detered from committing crime over and over again. You seem to be forgetting the fact that these criminals made a choice to commit a crime, no one made them do it. Stop feeling sorry for the decisions they chose to make in life. They are right where they want to be, free meals, tv, internet, GED classes, relaxation, yoga, medical care and who knows what else. I'm sure daily massages will be next.

If the jail was more like a jail and not a social gathering event, then this would be a deterent. As it is now, jail is really not that bad of a place to be, as you can tell from the photos above. WHAT A JOKE!

Madison County man arrested after vehicle chase in Athens

Yet another career criminal allowed to roam free and terrorize anyone in their path of crime and destruction. This idiot has been arrested for several felonies including burglaries, thefts, drug possession and other crimes, yet he is allowed to continue walking among us. I really can't blame the criminals anymore, when they know nothing is going to happen to them other than a night in jail and probation, why not continue doing what they want to anyone they chose.

Cheerios stands by TV ad showing mixed-race family

I don't see a problem with this commercial as Cheerios is only trying to get a head start on what will one day be the majority in this country, bi-racial families. More and more white women are having kids with black men every day. Nothing we can do about it but accept it. Not saying I agree with this, only saying there is nothing we can do about it.

Man shot to death outside Gainesville store

But I thought a convicted felon was not suppose to have a gun. Is there not laws on the books to prevent this from happening? I just don't understand why a criminal would possess a gun when he knows he should not have one. I bet if we had better laws he would not have had it.

Penn. many charged with raping 6-year-old boy

No trial needed, cut it off, feed it to him and poor salt on the wound until he bleeds out.

Man charged with sneaking photos under skirt of Athens Walmart employee

He should get a tattoo on his forehead that reads "pervert". On second thought, he really doesn't need anything to identify him of this fact, his looks give it away right off the bat.

Awesome job by the GCPD, dispatchers and fireman. Way to take care of the threat swiftly and accurately.

Georgia troopers visiting schools

@TeeWee: Regardless of the traffic law enforcement part of it, there is much more to it than officers writing tickets. Traffic stops are also an effective way to capture wanted persons, recover stolen property and confiscate drugs among other things. So I guess you can say I think outside the box also.

Georgia troopers visiting schools

@TeeWee: Sounds like you have had one too many speeding tickets. I like how you made up random stuff to try support your claim that police do not need to enforce traffic laws. The highways are already dangerous enough with enforcement, I could not imagine how bad it would be if everyone thought they had no chance of being pulled over for breaking a traffic law. I agree the schools need a law enforcement prescence too, but to say traffic officers should be pulled from enforcing traffic laws and assigned to schools is just ignorant.

Athens child calls 911 after man beats her mother

I feel sorry for the daughter, as she has no choice, but the mother has a choice and she continues letting this scum back into her house. As the old saying goes, "if you lie down with dogs you will get up with fleas", or in her case a swollen face.

That's funny, check back in about 4 years to find out how much probation time Isaiah Crowell received.

Police beat man in Atlanta officer shooting

Oh great, here comes Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and the NAACP out to defend this poor baby. I can hear them already, this outstanding citizen had his rights violated and did not deserve this horrible beat down. They beat him down like a dog, blah blah blah....

I agree that he did not deserve to be beat like this, he deserved a bullet to his face instead.

Pizza delivery man robbed at west Athens housing complex

If I owned a pizza joint, my drivers would be given strict orders for no deliveries to section 8 housing. The risk is too great for a $15 dollar pie.

    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
