Until Little Rock commits to ELIMINATE gangs and gang violence from our city we can never become the great Southern City envisioned by our mayor.

Our population growth is anemic and surrounding cities are the only safe place to economically raise a family. The middle class is exiting Little Rock to other areas that truly are committed to safety.

Lock these gun toting hoodlums away and throw away the key!!

All scum need to be discouraged, hassled, rushed and eliminated ASAP. Little Rock is better than this. I won't visit or stay until this is done. It's not worth the good life to be subjected to the constant threat of injury or death from sorry people like this. Clean it up regardless of what it costs.

Surprised liberals aren't upset about the paper reporting on Black thugs.

They say it is racist that a higher percent of Blacks are in prison but never stop to realize that the reason is a higher percent of Blacks commit violent crimes.

(but there are a lot of things liberals don't" realize " )

Lets just be glad 74 people weren't KILLED.....Yall remember the 2 WHITE guys in Nevada and Texas, right? Those 2 TERRORISTS are responsible for more murders than the entire city of Little Rock. GenMac seems to love giving fake statistics, but numbers don't lie #FACTS

The General is an idiot.
Was listening to American family Radio yesterday. The main moron (Wild Man I think) said to his listeners that, "liberals do not even think we are human, that we don't even have a right to be here."
What the hell is this guy talking about? I just wish all his followers could see him burn in hell once he dies. Bearing false witness about millions of people. Many God's people. It's really just hate speech disguised as religion. But it gets the old people to send their money I guess.

LRDAWG..........Don't deny that liberals and Black racists say the prison system is unjust because too high of a percent are Blacks.

Read this paper daily.
You should realize there is a direct correlation between committing violent crime and Blacks in prison.

Feel free to prove me wrong.

LRDAWG...........and many violent Black thugs are treated very softly by the judicial system.

Lil Boosi was roaming free at night and shot at a cop because a lenient judge only gave him a 5PM curfew.

LRDAWG...........should the cops round up a bunch of white jaywalkers and throw them in prison just to try to balance racial statistics ?

Perception isn't reality GenMac. I read more violent crimes from whites than blacks. Aren't sexual assault and rape considered violent crimes? Are you telling me whites don't murder each other? Maybe you should read and comment on EVERY story and your perception would change. Whites commit far worse crimes than jaywalking....13 year old just killed someone with a crossbow
