I mean, y'all got the law tryin' to cover up a hate crime, y'all got wannabe politicians threatenin' their rivals with physical harm. Y'all got that white supremacist hobblin' around your court square. What year is is down there in Paris, Tennessee? And what's happenin' with that gay man who got beat up, and was then harassed by the police? Did they end up payin' him off to keep his mouth shut about the whole issue? Just kinda sweep it under the rug, and let it be forgotten?
Was it a good ol' nudge, nudge, wink, wink?

Cover up a hate crime? Hey dummy, I don't know how fast news travels to Murray, but it's already been proven a hoax and all he wanted was some attention.

And you think Murray is the perfect little town... it's not, so get over yourself.

Hey at least we don't have a Chuck Jones screwing everyone.

The man makes good points. They may not be entirely accurate but we do have all of that stuff going on. Be honest. We are jacked up right now.

Maybe so... but nothing serious enough to refer to the town as being corrupt... every town has their share and Murray is no exception.

reread the article in the parispi and wmuf you will see that there was something they didnt like in his story, or some fact that was off, but they never ever said, that it was a hoax, they even stated at the end of the articles police say they are still looking into the robbery and arson making it two different things, but the way they worded it ewveryone had the rest stuck in their minds before end of article, you have to be paying attention to catch it, sadly most around here seem to have fallen for that tactic. I truly feel bad for the guy, paris can be rather unfriendly if you dont fall in line.

I bet they're having a Friday night meeting right now to figure out how to screw over the hard working citizens of Paris right now.

All meetings are open to the public, so why don't you go and listen and/or make "your opinions" to them instead of hiding on topix.

If more people went to meetings and voiced their ideas, suggestions and opinions they might be more receptive to change. Since very few go and say anything they don't have much to work with except what's on their agenda.

I have gone to meetings, voiced my opinion, written letters to city manager and written letters to the editor... what have you done?

Best Answer,

If you have gone to meetings and written the letter like you say you have, did you get very far? Did you see the change you were hoping for?

I was being extremely sarcastic...if I came across as serious to you, you might want to rethink your seriousness on life...

Not a problem!

However, I have sometimes found the line between sarcasm and a legitimate comment to be very narrow.

So, I generally try to give a straight answer and that way there is no second guessing my response.
fyi

Well Murray is pretty screwed up too. Cops taking money from people they pull over if they don't have everything legal to b on the road driving. I know that for a fact. Although I do admit Paris is pretty screwed up too! Cops in Paris r not honest...they had some good ones years ago but got rid of them. And the things that go on in the jail..seriously!

Hmmm seems to me only someone who has been in jail would know what goes on in said jail. Makes me question the validity of your claims.
