Great news from the Sheriff there. Wish we had someone here with the same guts. And since we don't, we have to tolerate loud noise, shootings and some innocent person getting shot and all the other problems that go with it. No wonder people want to move there. Good for you.

You want, want, want.....whine, whine, whine.
You don't GIVE anything, EXCEPT lack of respect for others that live there that DON'T
want to hear it. Why don't you GROW UP & act like an adult. Would that be too difficult for any of you?
I'm sure there are other areas that could host a "car show". Then EVERYBODY would be happy!

Yep.......here we go again. Whitey beatin down the black folk! The man said "it don't be here" you gonna believe me or your lyin white ears and eyes? We all know whitey put them black marks on the street and run thru the street with his radio turned up load just so he could go hassle the black man. And ......if God did happen to grant your wish......you might be surprised who he cleans up!

Having to put up with that B.S. where you live is called up close and personal. Then to compound the disrespect your gonna play the race card. You, my friend, are an idiot.

Of all the places to go and have a "car show"...come on. There are plenty of empty lots & buildings that can host the "event." The host need to take his "event" elsewhere and stop invading the homeowners neighborhood w/that garbage. I know I would not want such event hosted near my home, church or kids'school. O.K. so not everyone who has rims and sound systems in their cars sell drug or are criminals. But most of them are. Casing houses/people to rob. So I will trust what I know. The event is jeopardizing the entire community. So since we playing Jeopardy I say, "lock them up & put them out of the neighborhood for $400, Alex"

I don't blame the neighbors. It is annoying to try to sit on the front porch for some peace and quiet and then people come thumping through the neighborhood. It is even more annoying for thumping to keep going most of the day. Some of that music is down right vulgar and I sure wouldn't want my kids listening to it. I do believe Olive Branch has a noise ordinance law, such as disturbing the peace that they should be able to enforce.

First of all these shows are not every weekend. There are about three car shows a year in that park. You can find skid marks anywhere over the entire city in Olive Branch. There have been no acts of violence at any of these shows in the past, so why are people no saying they are afraid someone will come and in and make someone else mad and it will spill over into their property. It seems to me that there is some underlying racial profiling going on here, especially when the sheriff says "We're just not going to let THOSE PEOPLE take over that area over there and be a burden to the residents over there." This is a family owned park and one of the family members said "If it's bothering the neighborhood we'll have to tune it down. We'll try and roll with the right thing". Seems like to me there are attempting to ease any concerns of their frighten neighbors, just as any good descent neighbor would do.

"those people" arent gonna take over our town

white people are so funny all they do is live in fear. Lets be clear this is not about the car show its about black people in "their" neighborhoods and they are afraid because they ASSUME that something is going to happen even though the car show has been held there for years. Its a way to bring the community together during the summer. u people need to lighten up seriously.

Im looking at everyones post and thinking how come he cant pull the race card and eveything that comes out of is memphrica <Memphis africa> or ape city...racism is still alive and it shows from everyone commenting on this issue. AND YES IM A 22Y.O. YOUNG BLACK MALE WITH A FULL-TIME JOB ATTENDING THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSISSIPPI AND I HAVE RIMS, A SOUND SYSTEM, AND A TV IN MY CAR. NO ONE ON HERE KNOWS THE PEOPLE OUT HERE AT THE CAR SHOWS SO WHO ARE YOU TO SAY THAT THEY "SELL DRUGS" JUST BECAUSE OF THEIR CAR OR HOW THEY DRESS!!!! BLACK PEOPLE AND WHITES ARE DIFFERENT, BUT EQUAL...TRUE BUT WE ALSO HAVE OUR OWN FUN IN DIFFERENT WAYS AND SKIN COLOR IS A FACTOR IN THIS WHOLE BECAUSE ITS LIKE THAT THROUGHOUT MISSISSIPPI, YOUNG BLACKS GET TOGETHER= PROBLEMS, DRUG DEALING, POLICE SHUTTING IT DOWN...YOUNG WHITE KIDS= THEIR JUST HAVING FUN, WHEN THEY HAVE MORE DRUG ADDICTIONS, DRAG RACING AND UNDER AGED DRINKNING THAN ANYONE ELSE...IM TIRED OF GETTING PULLED OVER JUST BECAUSE I "FIT THE DESCRIPTION" OR BECAUSE MY CAR HAS THIS OR THAT ON IT! THIS IS REALLY GETTING OLD AND I THINK I SPEAK FOR US ALL WHEN I SAY "WE ARE TIRED OF IT!!!" NO MORE!!!

Like you are 'assuming' how white people feel? Or is it more like the way you are 'assuming' it is about black people?

Look at what blacks have done to Memphis. Enough said, we don't want that in OB.

I have read all the post and I am saddened, not only by my black counterparts also by my white neighbors. I can see where hearing loud music every weekend can be a nerve wrecking. The OWNER of the land said that he is going to work within the limits given to him. Let's see what is going to happen. Making this whole thing about race is disgusting and immature. The owner does have the right what he wants to do on or with his land within certain boundaries. I feel it was very professional of him to humbly think about the neighbors once the issue was brought before him. Sometimes people forget about how things affect others and need to be reminded. On that note all the Memphica and Whitey comments should stop. However, a resolution to the problem should start.
