How sick is it that someone would report a missing burned corpse? And what's worse, what sickRead More individual would tie the hands and feet of said corpse and leave in the woods? Society these days, geez... (/sarcasm)

What I do not understand is ……this guy is in the court room and just got sentenced,Read More and was therefore (or should have been) in the custody of court officers/police ……How the heck did he get away in the first place and why did they not catch him before he got into his truck. Someone needs to take a look at that.

If you're on Covington Highway, the Decatur police will not respond to your traffic accident, norRead More will the Decatur fire department. Decatur sanitation will not pick up your trash. You can't get a Decatur business license or a Decatur building permit. Decatur zoning does not apply nor does Decatur code enforcement. You can't vote for Decatur's mayor or city council. Your kids can't attend Decatur schools. Hell, your dog can't even be in a Decatur dog park. On the plus side, our property taxes are dramatically lower. You do, however get your mail through the Decatur post office, so if the USPS is your standard, then Decatur does extend south and east (and north).
Keith April 7, 2014 at 06:41 pm
FSG then why does that area carry the Decatur name and zip code? Has city leadership commented onRead More the situation or looked at improving that area to more closely resemble the vibe and feel of Decatur?
Ari Meier April 10, 2014 at 11:56 pm
Keith, this is because the USPS assigned these areas Decatur zip codes long ago. Zip codes and cityRead More limits are almost never contiguous. This is quite common. For instance, I work in the city of Sandy Springs, in the city proper, but my zip code is an Atlanta zip code. Although the Sandy Springs police serve us. The reality is that people rarely have issues with this until property values and sense of pride is an issue. This is normal and nothing is wrong with feeling that way. As recent as 40 years ago, these outside the city of Decatur areas were prestigious suburban addresses. Things started socially and economically changing over the years, but the USPS never changed the zip code designations.

People Charles made the comment to get attention and instead of ignoring him and talking aboutRead More Crystal Morrow you're giving him the attention he craves even if it's bad attention. He's a troll and you people fell for it.

Shawn: You're absolutely right but people like none of your business missed the point and fell rightRead More into Charles' trap.

Thank you, Mom for having her in her car seat!

Perhaps Mom should have had it the car seat strapped in correctly.
Victor Marshall April 10, 2014 at 11:31 am
@powdertowner - My thoughts exactly. This could've had a very different outcome without that carRead More seat being strapped in properly. Very lucky little girl indeed.

The attacker is a bully and his parents were fully aware of it. As a parent of a non physicallyRead More violent bully, you know when your child is a bully because he bullies his siblings. I used to get complaints from parents of frightened children about my son all the time. My son was finally cured of his bullying ways when another bully punched him with brass knuckles on. Well wishes to the Egan family. This little boy did not deserve this. Nobody does.
Omar Monroe March 31, 2014 at 07:57 am
If thats the case then Melissa Hickson, he deserved what he got, my neighbors daughter was bulliedRead More for a long time, the bullies would be so bad that they even followed her home, waiting down the street to catch her outside, she told her parents but they didn't do anything, when she finally had enough and fought back, she was expelled, and had to go to alternative school.

Something important to think about regarding this situation is ...almost every kid perpetrating aRead More school mass shooting WAS a victim of bullying ...and they had enough. So, let's just brush this crime under the rug and pretend it didn't happen ...and see what happens next.

LOL LOL From your comment I doubt if you have the education to even earn $30,000 a year, much lessRead More $3 mllion lol lol. One man earning $3 million a year in salary for coaching football in the NCAA or NFL is OUTRAGEOUS and INSANE!!!! The majority of those you referred to as criminals (euphemism for Blacks!!) are "student/athletes" with a 95% EMPHASIS on ATHLETE! They take these mostly low income kids out of their environment and put them in an environment of major colleges and expect them to survive on $75 stipend, when a good percentage of them come from homes where their parents can't afford to send them $75 a month. They are expected to partake in student life, and maybe go to the student union and buy a burger and fries for not less than $8-$10, not to mention the cost of a movie, or getting a new pair of jeans. What would be so wrong with providing each student athlete a decent stipend of $500 a month, from a program that brings in probably over $100,000,000 annually? Its these kids that are EARNING that $$$$$. Quit YOUR HYPOCRISY about earning an education!! Thats THE LAST THING that 90% of these kids will earn at UGA or any other major NCAA Division 1 institution, the last thing. They'll sooner earn a prison sentence before they learn anything academically. They earn the university over $100 million a year and generous you refer to some lousy $40,000 tuition fee that is not going to benefit most of these kids (research graduation rates for student/athletes). Whats pissin you off is that these Negroes are getting the $75 a week. Eat your heart out!! LOL LOL Go buy a UGA football or basketball ticket for $150 and enjoy the players!! Or, get rid of them and have your kid play!!! lol lol lol

Doc, in a word...exploitation.
Nathan Blair March 20, 2014 at 08:26 am
When are we going to stop blaming the poor disadvantaged athletes? Let's lay the blame squarelyRead More where it belongs, at the feet of the parents that did not raise them properly, or the society that continues to allow such actions without recourse. Used to in the not too distant past, if a student used someone else's ideas, or copied printed material it was called plagiarism. Students used to be expelled for it, but today, they are given a smack on the hand, a lower grade in the course, maybe a failing grade for that class and being allowed to repeat the class. Unless we come down hard on the crime as it is committed and stop delaying consequences things of this nature will continue to be more and more prevalent in society. For the double dealing check thieves, oh, I know, lets make them politicians.
