Police: Two arrested after swinging chain, raising fist at officers

The article says he "quickly" reached into his jacket and produced a foot-long chain. The article said the Officer drew his weapon, probably in response to the furtive movement by chain-man. If the Officer had shot this suspect, would you be criticizing him for that ? Seems to me the Officer did the right thing given the circumstances.

Lawrence police make arrest after early morning homicide; victim identified

Hopefully there is evidence to charge and convict this person. How many people will he shoot/kill before he's removed from society?

Opinion: ‘Duck’ outrage goes political

Actually, Kevin, what Mr. Robertson said was “I never, with my eyes, saw the mistreatment of any black person... The blacks worked for the farmers. I hoed cotton with them," Robertson said. "I’m with the blacks, because we’re white trash. We’re going across the field.... They’re singing and happy. I never heard one of them, one black person, say, ‘I tell you what: These doggone white people’—not a word!”

It's seems to me a bit different than what you make it out to be.

Opinion: ‘Duck’ outrage goes political

The media tends to only print what they think will inflame things and sell more newspapers or air time. They no longer seem interested in reporting the whole story, especially if it doesn't suit their needs.

University employees: New social media policy is broad, vague and "chilling"

Easy solution to this problem. When at work, work. Don't be on facebook or twitter. End of problem. And if you need to be on social media as part of your job, don't say anything that will embarrass your employer. Simple really.

Letter: Real injustice

Perhaps we should dismantle everything built since that evil Columbus arrived...would that make everything okay then? This topic has been debated and debated. Build it already, before the costs go up yet again.

$332 million later, Statehouse construction nears its end

State Government...Federal Government.....there is no difference. Both waste our tax dollars every single day with impunity. Nothing will change until voters get fed up and vote them all out of office.
