Multiple disability-rights demonstrators arrested on second day of protests September 16, 2014 at 10:22 p.m.

They can get out, protest, fill up offices, block traffic, and generally make a nuisance, but cannot function enough to get medical care? Huh?

McDaniel admitted to hospital September 15, 2014 at 8:16 p.m.

Probably from having to go to court to defend Arkansas's gay marriage ban, in direct conflict with his own personal values (or lack thereof).

Half a decade to clean up the broken-loose dock? Lovely.

School's air conditioner vandalized; students turned away September 8, 2014 at 5:12 p.m.

Yes, it can be "tough" w/o air, but many of us grew up without it, went to schools without, etc.

But let's get back to facts- I thought the legislation passed a few years ago was aw suppose to quell the copper thieves... In this state, one is SUPPOSE to have an HVAC license to scrap copper from such equipment, with the info recorder each time some is sold.

Man charged with negligent homicide after fatal wreck September 8, 2014 at 4:25 p.m.

Racist? What post is racist? Illegal immigrant is not a race-based statement. It refers to someone's immigration status. If one is here Illegally...

There was a time when someone here illegally who committed any crime was summarily deported. But no longer. The Onama Administration has instituted yet another protected class.

LR police arrest 11 in McDonald's wage protest September 4, 2014 at 11:22 p.m.

KMS- you must be one of those ACORN nuts.

This is an organization with hard-core racist roots, that has been caught many many times engaged in an promoting illegal activities, and that has bilked $millions from both taxpayers and private citizens. It started in corruption, fed on corruption, and images continued as an outlet for corruption.

LR police arrest 11 in McDonald's wage protest September 4, 2014 at 11:17 p.m.

How many full-time workers only make "minimum wage".

And of the extremely low number, how many have been making that amount for any significant time (assuming they have been at the same job)?

And IF there are any who have worked for minimum wage for any lefty of time, exactly how reliable are you? How hard a worker are you?

I submit- hard working, reliable workers are still in demand and make more than minimum wage. Period.

Just ask the farmers who have resorted to hiring immigrant labor (many of which are here illegally) who make more than many fast food workers...

Why are Tyson Plants filled with imported (again, often illegal) laborers? That company starts above minimum wage.

LR police arrest 11 in McDonald's wage protest September 4, 2014 at 11:10 p.m.

TomN demonstrates his abject and willful Leftist-propaganda consumption.

TomN believes he and the government should stipulate what and how much you beat and what vehicle you drive.

And he somehow ties that all in with doubling minimum wage.

Many posting here on this story have zero understanding of economics. If minimum wage is doubled, that will dilute the dollars made by everyone. The poor will not be better off, and those who currently make any more than minimum wage will be severely penalized.

LR police arrest 11 in McDonald's wage protest September 4, 2014 at 10:59 p.m.

"The names of those arrested are: Britney Johnson 25, Chris Lairy, 30, Anthoney Porter, 23, Robert Watkins, 32, and Justin Seville, 25, all of Little Rock; Kierre Warren, 22, of Pine Bluff; Maria Leaks, 20, of Jacksonville; Shnette Hooker, 43, Akil Poynter, 20, and Benjamin Patterson, 21, all of St. Louis. An unidentified juvenile protester was also taken into custody, cited and released, Allen said."

If they have so much time on their hands, maybe a more constructive use of that time would be to find a job, or a 2nd job.

By the way- fast food workers rarely stay near minimum wage... If they are willing to put effort in, work hard (honest work for their pay), and actually SHOW UP for work!
