Clerk shot during attempted robbery at LR store

Haven't too much changed with the way the media reports crimes. Remember when all the hangings, church burning, rapes, beatings, bombings, gang banging (KKK) done by white people, went unreported by the media. Don't take my word, asked your daddy, mother, or grandparents. Lets not mention the financial crimes that are still being committed today. Anyone know someone that lost a home, car, or their life savings? Remember when land and homes were stolen because late payments, even if it was late taxes. Miss a payment on a car, and its repo time unless you are white.

Teen held in LR armed robbery

Anyone else in the state notice how Hall High is mention by the media every time a Hall student commits a crime? Have anyone heard of a Rogers, Bentonville, Cabot, or a Fayetteville student perform a crime? I find it hard to believe that those schools with a population over 2000 students are criminal free. Think about it...!

Alabama Crimson Tide rolls over Arkansas Razorbacks

Go Harley! Say that again!
I'm disappointed with the politics of playing Brandon Allen. That kid is clearly not ready for SEC football. He went 6-25 playing ULM. Brandon Mitchell is a stronger leader, has a stronger arm, and a stronger athlete. Whenever they bring him in, they want to run him like he's a RB. Not much of a chance to be a QB. That may very well have a lot to do with the players shutting down on the coaches. They wanted to play for that staff eventhough they knew the new coach hired will bring in his staff. But once that staff started playing politics and playing the players stupid, it changed the hearts of the players. TRUST ME!!!

LR officer pleads innocent in teen's shooting death

I'm sure a wrongful death suit is in the making. However, the parent's lack of control over their 15 year old child contributed to that death. Failure to train a child up in the way they should go, can result in a lost of life.

Second vigil planned for man shot in patrol car

Frisked Twice? I bet one police will roll on the other if his career was in jeopardy and he was faced with negligent homicide. It was negligence that a gun wasn't found during a fisk. It was negligence that a perp was left unsupervised long enough to get out of the cuffs, find a gun to place to his head, pull the trigger, and put the handcuffs back on behind his back before he died. What a shame that people are suppose to be dumb enough to believe that report.

Teen identified in fatal police shooting

15, 51, or 5... It matters not!!! No one should be out breaking into cars. If he was "just a kid", he should have been at home, in the house, in the bed. Now I hate someone lost a love one, but somewhere in a book it says " honor thy mother and thy days will be long". I'm sure that mother didn't give her 15 year old permission to be out that time of morning, riding in a stolen vehicle, breaking into car, and who knows what else. It takes a village to raise a child, and everyone in that village failed that child.

State trooper involved in Dyer stop fired, submits appeal

This is not about Mike as much as it is about a lack of intergety from a law enforcier. Lady Justice has always had site, but law enforcement is suppose to keep that a secret. You only have to look at Operation Delta Blues to see Lady Justice assisting with drug trafficking; and you know there were gun possessions with every escort. Prosecutors should be a huge concern as well. It's time to put the blindfold back on Lady Justice. It's time to get rid of police, prosecutors, judges and lawmakers that keep tampering the blindfold.

Teen escapee arrested in Maumelle

With all the triple digits temperature, that kid is lucky the sun didn't turn his skin dark. First, he never would have sent to a behavior clinic. He would have been given a ten stretch in prison. Yes, he would have been charged as an adult. Second, the order to "shoot on site" would have been given soon as the escape was called in. "OUCH" I know it hurts, but the truth feels like that at times.

Trooper's conduct in Dyer traffic stop investigated, police video released

What did that Christian school teach this kid before sending him into the real world? And, what the devil he need with a gun? He's strong enough to defend himself, and fast enough to run from anyone he can't beat up. Finally, I'll be mad as heck if I was locked up on a gun and weed possession charge, and the LR Christian's football star gets to run laps after practice. I know, "what a low blow", but I couldn't resist.
