I am a 26 year old white man living in Galion. I know that racism in Galion exists. Although, no one will admit it in public, but this article has drawn the real feelings from our town. The racial expletives that I heard at the bar, on the phone, at work, at the home of my uncle, and from my father-in-law while discussing the article, really took me aback.

Mr. Dorsey lives in my neighborhood. I would have not known who he was if the police hadn't been in the neighborhood asking questions last summer about both Mr. Dorsey's. They were mostly general character questions, are they good neighbors, have we heard of any problems, suspicious activity, the smell of drugs, or people coming and going from the house.

If you ask me. Gailon is more racist than I ever thought. But I'm white, the police don't follow me....:) LOL

I do know there are more african americans in Galion then there ever were. But ppl need to give it a rest now. There is to much fighting in the world. I can remember when i had a girlfriend living with me and she was mixed ( white & african american ) a few young men set a cross on fire in my front yard and that was on the corner of liberty in the white house. Her three year old looked up to say why mommy did i do wrong ? what do you tell her ? No baby its because your black and this town dont like us. When you look at your neighbor the next time look past the skin color his or her,s blood is red just like yours an mine.

I couldn't agree more, "concerned". I don't think it is just a race thing though. I think that if you are not from here, whether you are white, black, etc., you will not be liked. Hell, I'm white, but soon after I moved to Galion I told my neighbors that I wasn't from here, then all of a sudden the punk cops started showing up at my door about some dumb stuff that doesn't even matter, like "the nose of your car is hanging over the sidewalk a little" or "the vehicle that you have parked on the side of the street hasn't been moved in the last 24 hours". I mean, are you f***ing kidding me, who cares, who is it bothering? The truth is it didn't bother or affect anybody, but they knew I wasn't from there and they didn't like me being there. Oh, and by the way my neighbors who are from here, they block the sidewalk with their vehicles all the time and park on the side of the road for days at a time, but they are "from" Galion so its ok if they do it. Like I said earlier, I am white and I get harassed, I couldn't imagine being a person of color in this hick, trailer-trash town. MY RECOMMENDATION TO ANYONE MOVING TO THIS AREA OF OHIO---AVOID GALION AT ALL COSTS!!!

The Crawford county sheriffs dept isn't any better. You have no rights in this county even in your own home. I found that out the hard way.

REALLY, a 3 yr. old SAID that? I don't think a child that age would look at a burning cross and think he did something wrong-----don't think he would even know at 3 years old the meaning of a burning cross and associate it with HIM doing something wrong. If he did you need to put him in a gifted child school somewhere besides Galion-----he must have been reading alot of books at 3 to come up with that.

Well, your mom was caught hookin for crack and ended up making your dad (pump) mad because she didn't get any cash also. So he starts beating her with that giant black strapon that your tranny boyfriend uses on you when an African American gentleman walking by broke it up and took the strap on from your daddy and gave it back to your mom. Then the police showed up and your mom blamed it all on him and he was arrested. I always wondered what kind of terrible parent would raise something like you!

mu sons girlfriend was abusing prescription drugs. She got caught doing them an cheating on him. She started fighting with him in my home in front of 4 small kids. 3 were hers an 1 was mine. She assaulted him in my home. I told her to leave my home. Her ride came so she told me that she was coming back to shoot us all. When she said this I smacked her an told her again to leave my home. Next thing I know after we call sheriffs dept. she went to galion pd an files charges on me. I got stuck paying a fine an she has yet to be charged with anything. She recently went to prison for armed robbery. She has lost all 4 of her kids, all from diff dads.

It is not about stupidity, its about parents teaching him or blaming him for everything that he would think, at 3 yrs. old, that he was to blame for that happening. I DARE you to tell this story to a to a psychologist or childrens doctor with the child present and see what they say. YOU are a liar for trying to pass that scenario off as something a 3 year old did-----until you do the above no one is going to believe you---we are not stupid, only you. Care to tell us the 3 year old's name so we can see how he EXCELS in school?
