Are any born-again Christians scheduled to be there?

What would really be educational would be to have students research and do a paper about non-typical racism. In that vein, how about the awful lives that poor people of every race have experienced to demonstrate that African-Americans do not have a corner on deprivation and never have had. Then, finally, have them do research comparing what life for their African ancestors and their descendants who stayed put was like in comparison to those ancestors who came to America. I am not racist but am really tired of "racism" being painted with one stroke!
Is it really worth it? From the previews I've seen it is not! While we all value our freedom of speech, no one has the right to "yell 'fire' in a crowded theater" with reckless disregard for anyone else's well-being.
Please don't bring the Lord into your sad attempt at racial humor!
And we wonder why Arkansans are often viewed as simpletons!! There is not a business on earth that could survive for a single year operating the way this State operates. I'm both infuriated and embarrassed for the State of Arkansas! Governor-elect Hutchinson, please ride in on your white horse of honest, transparent conservatism and save us!!!
Everybody who asks for a pardon from the Governor does not get it. They may not be deemed worthy enough. God does not work like that. His pardons can be given to all who ask because His own Son, Jesus, was/is altogether perfect and worthy.
Isn't "pardon" wonderful? An offense is just wiped from the record - as if it had never even taken place. That's the same way God pardons our sins. He never even remembers our sins, afterwards. Just like Gov. Beebe's son we can only obtain pardon if we ask for it and accept it when it's offered.
The heinous nature of his offense does not mean he has forfeited his rights. Mr. Kinsey's defense attorney is legally obligated to demand a mental evaluation for his client. The evaluation will most likely be involuntary, because the sicker someone is the more unlikely they realize they have a mental illness. When a patient refuses to answer questions during a mental exam, the evaluation process involves in-patient observation over a period of time at a mental hospital. The legal system must be more sensitive to the reality of mental illness. Being sick is not a choice and neither are the actions of an actively psychotic individual.
Un-be-freakin'-liev-able!!! This guy facing possible life in prison has every reason to get as far away from Arkansas as fast as possible. Whoever was misguided enough to put up their property for his bail had better start waving "bye-bye" to it!!
Huh?? The article said there were 17 arrests (presumably of NON-minors) who "unknowingly" furnished alcohol to minors. Wouldn't those 17 people have to be non-minors contradicting the statement that only 9 non-minors were arrested?
