the fact Walker only wants to file complaint against the white officers illutrates what a RACIST attitude this "representative" has. Dr. King wanted a society without color, this man only continues to encourage a racial divide. This is who we want representing our communities?

Kaepernick has the right to "free speech" just as much as any other American. However, he also needs to be ready to accept the consequences of his actions - whether that means cheers or jeers or loss of a sponsorship (if he has any?). Personally, I think all these sports figures are given far too much money and attention - ask him to give $18 million of his $19 million/year salary to a group of teachers who actually make a difference in the lives of children.
No wonder people are so cynical about our government - with all the problems facing our state, they are wasting time and money because they are worried about dressing "appropriately" ?!? How did this even make it on the the floor for a vote? I hope voters take note of whoever submitted and moved this bill forward - when up for re-election they need to be removed.
The Lottery as a fund raiser for Scholarships is a farce Highest sales ever and still only 23% of that money will go to scholarships. Who would support a charity that only spends 23% of the money raised on "the cause" it proclaims to support? Put a team of investigative reporters on this issue - WHERE IS THE MONEY GOING? WHO"S REALLY BENEFITING FROM THE ARKANSAS LOTTERY? It is obvious it is not the college students.
It appears "black lives matter" only when it's a Caucasian who commits the crime. Where is Al and Reggie and all the other race haters when it's two young black men killing a mother with a toddler in her arms!?! Re guns and gun control -- statistics show these young men very likely did not buy their weapons at a gun shop or gun show - ie legal channels.
don't usually play the Lottery but what the heck, it's low risk high reward fun when the jackpot's this high -- maybe tomorrow when my boss is driving my crazy I'll be able to stop saying my mantra "paycheck benefits paycheck benefits paycheck benefits" and quit my job.
If our JV Leader gets out his golden pen, your won't be able to buy ammo in quantities >6 bullets per month, buy silhouette targets, and he'll close down the gun ranges because he thinks the root of the problem is guns.
Although I disagreed with the original order to remove the child from the ladies' home and the judge's reasoning was simply wrong, it's scary to think our Court System appears to be ruled by the Court of Public Opinion vs the Rule of Law.
Agree 85% with Testinggonetwothree - regardless of the color of skin, very few youth seem to have any respect for authority, then deny responsibility for their actions when there are consequences. The cop was wrong, the girl should NOT have been thrown to the floor but knowing how flimsy those student desks are, it's likely the initial move was to pull her from the chair and it flipped over. Having dealt myself with obnoxious "whatja gonna do bout it" attitudes from kids, my response would have been to hand cuff her if possible, and drag the chair with her in it out of the room. The girl broke the rules and got caught. Everyone needs to stop blaming everyone else for the consequences of their own actions. Perhaps we need to go back to the days of being put in Stocks in the public square.
These are the statements that should have been spoken from the White House well over a year ago. His next step will be to invite a Police Officer to the White House for a beer.
