This Mr. Rawlston character sounds like he's projecting his own spinelessness, in direct contrast to real people who actually believe in something important.

I am so thankful for Neal Pinkston and the others who are so dedicated to solve these cases. My sons, Dallas Nelson, cold case was a hopeless situation until the Cold Case Unit was established. If there are people who have given up hope about their case, please contact the Cold Case Unit. We also have a support group, Cold Case Families that meet on the last Friday of each month

I think it is stupid move to remove or deface Southern Confederate symbols base upon one individual cruel actions. The shooter in South Caroline did not do it for Confederate or long dead generals. He did it because he had no respect for anyone, especially black Christians. We can not wipe out symbols and forget our past. Our past is a source of education. We must learn from it. The thing that upset me is that are making this a issue to say look at me instead of seeing how we can identify threats whether from Americans or Foreign before something happens. With people out of work, no insurance, no health care, and roads and bridges needing fix all our leaders in government want to do is spend tax money on removing historical symbols. Really do they not have something better to work on?

I hope they catch the low life pieces of trash that did this. Society absolutely sucks more with each coming day.

Reminds me of an episode of Everybody Loves Raymond when his Dad, Frank, caught a ball and refused to give it back.

Not only do they do dirty business their product sucks! My sister bought a sectional because she needed furniture because of a divorce and it within a weak it was broke. It is cheaply made. When we turned it over we discovered that it wasn't even make with solid wood. It was 2x2 strips, not even 2x4's. Then when pieces of the bed set was missing she called them and received a hard time about getting the pieces that should of been already in the box. But then again you get what you pay for, you buy cheap you get cheap.

Before you continue using the term "active shooter", please learn what it means. Firing one shot outside the mall does not mean he was an active shooter. How do people propose mall officials and police notify shoppers of a shooting without causing mass panic and creating a bigger problem?

This place does dirty business! I bought a loft bed for my son on sale. We specifically told the sales man we wanted the won with the walk up steps instead of a ladder. He said ok, wrote up the wrong one. We paid and when we realized what happened, I called Tracy, the salesman and he said he made a mistake. Told me to ce get the steps. Got there and the GM refused to let me leave with the steps that I was supposed to get, the steps I paid for. The enter news is he offered me a deal, he said he would sell me the steps for only $100. Crooked!! Plain and simple!!
