I was watching the 10 pm news tonight. There was 10 to 12 news stories on violent crimes in Jackson. All of them was black on black. Looks like someone would figure out or admit to the problem in Jackson instead of adding to it.

I, at one time, worked in law enforcement in Madison county- in Flora to be exact. I wroked there for over three years. Having been in law enforcement for several years before I started there, I knew what to expect. If some of these complainers would do some research, they would realize that the majority of the "calls for service" eminate from the black neighborhoods. That would lead a person to assume that either the people in the other parts of town don't mind if their belongings go missing, or if they are being harmed, or...the high call areas are where the crime is taking place most. The police know this , they are out there every day and night. That is why they concentrate their efforts in certain areas. Call it what you want to, it's just good policing!

in regards to suzie q:

As to who was chief when I was part of Flora PD, I started when Charlie was there, worked through Frazier's tenure and when Hubert came on, I resigned. No point in working with a chief who straight-up told us not to do our job. I resigned and moved away. I recently moved back, but refuse to work there. Too much crap involved.

Oh my God! You are really ignorant! It makes no sense for you to act this way. God can hear your every word. If there is a problem with any person place or thing you should try and do something positive to fix it and not make it worse by being negative. You are just evil full of the devil. You need prayer and I will be praying for you. When you point finger three more point back at you. Stop calling people out of their names, we were all made in God's image!
