"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.

UPDATE: This dog has been returned to the owners from whom she had wandered. They had recently adopted her, and she is slated for a vet visit and grooming today!

Once again, the NAACP is trying to create a problem where one does not exist. The VW employees voted against the union because they did not feel that any benefits the union might provide were necessary nor worth the dues the union would charge them. Go away NAACP. You’re trying to kick down an open door.

Ecstasy is not a cloudy crystal. You guys need to do some better field research. Or use Google.

I hope she gets hired as soon as possible ! Someone, give her a break! From what I hear, the hospital is very close to the school, so it wasn't a big deal.

Tyler, this teacher received the Golden Apple award. So why must you post stuff that you know nothing about? Something tells me that you were not in her class and that you're just a liar.
