Who the crap cares? Really, does anyone have a life? Wake up Americans! This is all but need! The real news is that we need a freaking Revolution in this country. The flags upside down and everyone is worried about what happened at Wal-Mart! Get a clue and open your glazed over media loving eye's!

There is always 3 sides to a story! One person never tells the whole truth! Hopefully the tape will be released so we will be able to see who is telling the truth!

THIS REPORT is total BS! I was there when this happened, this woman was wanting to start a fight with everyone and was screaming at the top of her vulgar lungs! they should have arrested her instead of escorting her out. the news is really going downhill, I would like to know how you can do a piece based solely of what a person tells you , without doing any background on this person...if they did they would see she is not miss goody 2 shoes!

I think Dalton has a great police department. The officers put the needs of the community above their own in many cases. I have great confidence in them, and I know if I am pulled over I will be treated fairly.

The Dalton Police Department is a joke. They blocked off streets for this group of thugs who didn't file the proper paper work to have a parade/procession as they should have! That violates Dalton's city ordinances! They should have arrested these thugs! If this had been black or hispanics having an impromptu procession down the busiest street in Dalton, the Dalton Police Department would have locked them away no questions asked. The Dalton PD is a "good ole boys" network and apparently the self proclaimed Ruff Ryders who took over the streets of our town on Sunday are a part of that network. The Dalton Police Department is a disgrace and should be ashamed for condoning this!!

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
