@CharlotteLadyGardner: I suppose this is why we have competency tests for people on trial: they can be charged and be found incompetent to stand trial. Or, they can be found competent to stand trial. One recent example, the person who shoved another person in front of a train: the suspect is being evaluated for mental competency. She was arrested, charged with crimes and is now being evaluated.
Is it your opinion that mentally ill people can commit crimes and not be charged for them?
He is a danger to himself and to others; he is scary; and he is really crazy.
Calling him a "thug" is really silly. Have you read the posts from people who have know him since he was young? He has a serious mental health problem. We do not have an adequate mental health program in this country.
So easy to label the "crazy" as Thugs, POS, whatever. Where's your humanity? Use your energy to help solve this problem. Yes, crazy people can be very dangerous (many are not). Is name calling the solution? Do we have enough room in prison to house all the crazy people? Etc!posted @ Tuesday, January 1, 2013 - 20:14

“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world.
For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you?
When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’posted @ Friday, December 7, 2012 - 07:45

[quote][b]hogsupreme[/b] - What competent editor would choose to run this fevered, endless rant, bereft of verifiable claims and worthless as a basis for constructive discussion? The standards for the ABH editorial page are simply abysmal. Long past time for a change.
Yes. A list of opinions and assertions, not once do we see any supporting evidence, or a supporting argument. just a lot of fear mongering.
This is a campaign piece. Are you listening Mr Editor?posted @ Monday, September 24, 2012 - 06:48

Sure, I am aware of all that you mention. I was replying to the sentiments already posted.
Why, I even drive to the eastside for a quick homophobic fresh lemonade at the eastside Chic Fil A, not to mention stopping by 2 Story Coffee House now and again.

1) Siri Thai is "sort of" downtown. It borders a real live neighborhood, and is across the street from Big City Bread. And Baxter Street is its own business abyss. Lots of businesses have come and gone there. Neither place seems to fit the "downtown" business model particularly.
2) When the eastside becomes less of a strip mall venue for businesses, and more of a walk around and sit down and enjoy the neighborhood sort of venue, then it too will have people there asking others for handouts.
I guess what the eastside folks like is the convenience of driving everywhere and parking on expansive asphalt lots ... just for the privilege of being able to avoid the reality of homelessness and the reality that Athens is a college town.posted @ Sunday, August 26, 2012 - 08:58
One should be inured by now to the mean spirited and gratuitously nasty comments that appear on these boards. And yet, there are those that never cease to amaze; the holier than thou, self-centered comments are to what purpose? Trolling for attention? Trolling to stir up some trouble?
It might do some good if readers of these boards who find the nastiness and meanness too much for a community and family newspaper to write to the publisher and editors of the newspaper about moderating the intemperate and offensive speech one regularly finds here.posted @ Sunday, August 5, 2012 - 05:57

I think Gov Deal is not reading the Romney Game Plan: Economy Economy Economy. Not, Health Care Health Care.
And why does not Romney _really_ not want the Health Care being the center piece of the campaign?
Because he signed into Law as Governor a Health Care program that that was used as the template for the Affordable Care Act just found constitutional by the supreme court of the land.
Oh, and the Romney Law had the same Free Rider Tax (you know, the mandate that if you think you can go to the emergency room for health care and push the cost to people who take responsibility for themselves and buy their own insurance, you will be levied a penalty tax.
And why would Gov. Deal want the taxpaying citizens of Georgia not to receive the full benefits of the taxes they pay? By not implementing this program, Georgia tax dollars will go to the states that do implement the plan.
And that IS the law.posted @ Friday, June 29, 2012 - 05:27

Anyone know why the alleged prostitute was the target of a police investigation?
Or did I not read carefully enough?
He has been charged with two misdemeanors and the AthensBlogovators have convicted him and added charges that seem to be equivalent to raping children. What's that all about?
Also, There is such a thing as Due Process. Gwinnett County has not even started a legal process yet.

Full text of the Use of Public Right-of-Ways ordinance draft is below. Highlight: Would set hours of operation of each Athens-Clarke County "building campus" -- e.g. City Hall, the courthouse and Dougherty Street government building -- at 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily. Park hours would either be set by the Athens-Clarke County manager or the Mayor and Commission. The ordinance has been derided by members of Occupy Athens and others as seeking to enforce a curfew on public property, thus damaging their First Amendment right to peacably assemble for long-term protests. read more
