I am a retired veteran, and was born in Henning, Tennessee. Graduated from Ripley High in 1971. This town is not about killing causing hurt and pain on other people. We had our difference with cultural issues, but this is no way to resolve it. I alway think about Martin Luther King, and how he bought people togther to address issues, like unemployement, drug abuse. Issues that neede to be address for a community to grow. For the family that have lost there love ones, My family will keep all you in our prayers.

WREG doesn't report the whole story. WMCTV does.

On a walk in downtown Memphis with their attorney Thursday, Sammie Lee Haley and his wife, Latasha, were shadowed by two postal police officers dressed in tactical-type uniforms.

"I can go into a store; they'll follow me into the store," Haley said. "I'll be outside at my sister's house; they'll be outside parked on the side of the road. At night-time, they flash lights through our house."

Haley and his wife claim it's been happening for a week.

"Everywhere we go, they're right there," he said.

Haley claims postal inspectors approached him recently about the October 18 murders of two post office workers in Henning. He claims he took and passed a lie-detector test, and voluntarily provided DNA and clothing samples.

Thursday, Action News 5's Andy Wise asked him directly about the attacks.

"Did you have anything to do with the postal workers' deaths?" Wise asked.

"No, sir," Haley responded.

"Nothing at all?" Wise followed-up.

"Nothing at all," Haley confirmed.

Civil rights attorney Robert Hutton, who allowed Action News 5 accompany his walk with the Haleys, said the couple's daily lives are being disrupted by the overt actions of the postal officers.

This shouldn't be happening in The United States. This is harassment, and the postal inspectors should be fired, and the person responsible for them harassing these people should be fired.
