I appreciate that WDEF published an article about our Basilica's beautiful windows, but this is very poorly written and obviously unedited. You have to do better than this. Where's the Ombudsman?

He needs to do these meet and greets in the gang areas. Maybe if he spent more time dodging gang bullets like the rest of us, he would actually do more to prevent gang activity instead of just hiding the term "gang" from the tourism trade. It's not going away on it's own Berke.

"Freedom of speech is ok but when you talk about hate and all this it shouldn't be allowed,", lmao (rolls eyes). It's a little better than "ok"... and it's a critical right, obviously. And for it to exist at all, you have to give dummies the same right to it. I don't like the idea of those (alleged) jerks coming here, either; however, that they can speaks well for everybody's rights in the bigger picture. It's amazing, and kind of scary, that the only locals to ever be interviewed are the 'blinders on' people.

"Leash law", lol... what a joke. We have a leash law within city limits here in Chattanooga, for all the good it does. The whole situation is pretty pathetic on all fronts. Firstly, of course, are all the selfish, inconsiderate dummies who disregard it; and secondly and thirdly, calling animal control and/or the police when there's a problem is roughly akin to dialing 1-800-USELESS. Nine times out of ten, when calling animal control, you just get a recorded message stating they're not available at the time. Then, when you call the police, they just tell you to call animal control... a never-ending loop of incompetence, lmao. In my experience, dog owners are generally a selfish, inconsiderate lot to begin with. Well over half of them aren't in a situation to even responsibly own a dog, as far as providing for it--not just food, but with the proper attention given and space provided. But they do it anyway, and infringe their selfish stupidity on those around them. Since this has been allowed to become the status quo, tragedies like the one in this story are going to ultimately occur. I can't even imagine what the parents are going through... what a terrible thing to endure.
