NYC officer pleads not guilty to manslaughter in shooting

@yeti: I'm actually dating a police officer and I have riden with him, so keep YOUR judgement to yourself, and know your facts before you try to make what I said into something it was not. And my statement "one of them" was singling one out of a group. I have nothing against police officers in general, but I do have an issue with people getting away with murder, police officers or not. I have a friend who was shot and killed by a Gwinnett County police officer a little over a year ago while he was laying on the ground surrendering. That officer was never put on trial, he got away with killing my friend who was only 23 years old. It's a hard thing to deal with when it's happened to someone you know. It's a bitterness that will stay with you for a long time.

NYC officer pleads not guilty to manslaughter in shooting

Ok so let me get this straight...Gurley opened a door to the stairwell and the officer shot him. He was shot because he opened a door to walk in to a stairwell. He..was...shot...for...opening...a...door... And the officer is going to get away with it. DiBlasio is right for not supporting his officers. They are killing people and getting away with it. I wouldn't support them either, at least not the bad ones. One of them killed a man with a choke hold that is clearly against department policy and got away with it. And this one shot a man because he opened a freaking door. When is this going to stop.

Parole board to hear clemency plea before planned execution of Barrow County woman

My mother was friends with this evil person. We stood in the funeral home with her while she played the part of a grieving wife. We were floored when we heard she had been arrested for his murder. She wept and cried and just kept saying how she didn't know what she was going to do, and she didn't know how she was going to go on. Anyone who can put on that good of a show in front of her family and friends deserves to die. It just proved that she is a heartless, soulless worthless of piece of trash who deserves to rot in hell.

3 arrested on shoplifting charges at multiple Athens area stores

Those three fell from the top of the ugly tree and hit every single branch and twig on the way down... geez... I wonder if the doctor slapped their mamas when they were born!

Athens police seize weapons following response to potential gang fight

@jtsim: I agree! If they want to play like big boys with guns build a big tall fence somewhere out in a field and throw them all in there together and let them go at it. It is senseless for innocent people to be put in harms way because little boys think they are some sort of bad a$$ and wanna be cool and shoot somebody. If they wanna be grown, ship their a$$es off to the military and see how bad a$$ they are then. They will quickly learn they aren't all rough and tough like they thought they were, it's all a front. If they were as tough as they think they are they wouldn't need guns to back it up, they would settle it without weapons like real men do.

Watkinsville moviegoer splashed with soft drink; suspect remains unidentified

Sheriff: Bodies found in car of missing Georgia couple

@mpd0.59: The article posted when I read it said absolutely nothing about bodies. It only talked about them going to buy the car and being missing.

Two people wearing t-shirts depicting alleged Athens murderers escorted from Cedar Shoals High School

@snarkydude: School leadership can only do so much. They don't get paid enough to parent these children as well. I don't know how old you are, but you and I both know that if we had behaved like these children do today that neither one of us would be alive to have this conversation. Our parents would have beaten our tails, or knocked our teeth down our throats. Parents these days are scared of the kids. They talk back, threaten to report them for abuse, carry weapons that they aren't affraid to use and they aren't affraid to fight with their parents. Verbally and physically. Parents need to step up and kick their kids a$$ for not behaving and minding authority. They also need to be held accountable for their childs actions.

Two people wearing t-shirts depicting alleged Athens murderers escorted from Cedar Shoals High School

@OCCountry: Theres a big difference between the two. If you were to walk past me in plain clothes in a crowded area, chances are that you would pay little to no attention to what I was wearing, right? In my job I see people with these memorial tshirts on all the time and I pay absolutely no attention to who is on them and why unless it is someone I happen to know. Which I'm sure is the case with the men on these people's shirts. I wouldn't have any idea who they were, and neither would you. They don't scream "HEY I'M SO AND SO AND I MURDERED SOMEONE".

@OCCountry: I never accused them of having good taste, and I never said it was right. But I don't think that a person, who is not a student, should be made to leave an event because of what they are wearing. In that case, every person wearing colors affiliated with gangs should be asked to leave. Red, blue, black, green...all of them.

@snarkydude: Those two people weren't students, they were attending an event at the school therefore the school board has no control over them. And I don't think my argument is off base either. And as far as white kids with confederate flag t-shirts goes, I've seen black kids wearing confederate flags too. As far as underperforming schools goes...I'm pretty sure a students wardrobe has nothing to do with their grades. That has to do with the teachers who have become complacent because they have students who are unwilling to obey their authority because they have parents who teach them that they are above authority and the law and that rules don't apply to them. If we had parents who properly disciplined their children and taught them that they have to obey rules and mind authority figures I'm sure that the performance of the schools would go up.

Not that I'm defending anyone who murders someone, or anyone who commits crime in general. But where is a law that says police can dictate what people wear. The t-shirt says "free my family" and the one guy had the same last name as one of the men arrested. I agree that it's not right, and I myself probably would wear clothing depicting murderers, but I'm pretty sure we live in a free country and should be allowed to wear what we choose to. Last time I checked ACCPD didn't pay for these people's clothes, therefore they shouldn't be allowed to tell them what to wear. And if they truly are family then I don't see that as being gang related. Commence with the negatives...

Pedestrian crosswalk flags to be tried on Prince Avenue

Those flags would be just another trophy for drunk college idiots to steal and hang on their walls. So how long is the county willing to keep up with the cost of replacing them.

Georgia police chief's wife upgraded to fair condition after gunshot

Why would you sleep with a gun IN the bed. I can see beside the bed, or under it, but actually IN it?? Someone trained in handling a gun shouldn't be that stupid.

That's a drop in the bucket compared to the millions he's made UGA in ticket sales for people wanting to come out and watch him play.

NYC cop cleared in choking death of unarmed black man

well let me be the first to say that my feelings aren't hurt because you don't like what I have to say... and also let me say that I'm white and I have no problem saying how I feel and I could care less who doesn't like it.

@bobbidiboo: If I could give you more than one negative I would. There is a time and a place for jokes and this is not one. A man lost his life, regardless of the circumstances. OH, wait... I forgot, you always make everthing about you and your feelings. You are the biggest "one-upper" I've ever seen. Take your nasty comments somewhere else. You and they are not wanted here.

@jtsim: She does. Unfortunately there are no mental health requirements for reproducing. There should be. I believe if you aren't mentally stable, or suitable to be a parent you should be sterilized. Both men and women.

    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
