This story is laughable. I don't think there are even 300 people living NEAR Marion, AL. The 3300 number must come from the entire surrounding counties. Also, the article notes Judson College, but it doesn't talk about Marion Military Institute, which is a mile from the town hall / center.

BTW, Marion isn't redneck territory. Marion is in an "African-American" controlled area. It's about 30 minutes NW of Selma, AL, and about 30 minutes NE of Union Station, AL. This area is called the Devil's Triangle in Alabama. There's VERY little industry of any kind in the area. The main money coming into this area is welfare and drug trade. The officer who was in charge of drug enforcement in Marion, AL is a twin brother of the one who was in charge of drug enforcement in Selma, AL. About 7 or 8 years ago, they were both arrested, along with hundreds of other officers through the "Bible Belt" / "Black Belt" on drug traffiking and selling charges. They were part of a VERY large drug traffiking corridor.

Well I got this fancy writing machine and soon Im going to scool. I met these folks they teach me chemestry I have learned all about ounces and eightballs. I can't wait to go back home and tell maw about the big city.

This is awesome. I just did a search. I think they were black because it started playing basketball and was followed by a drive by. Any who the town has Four police officers. And details are sketchy but is says that the police chief and the mayor were involved in the fight. Funny thing is the police chief proably is the mayor. Beautiful, I'm glad I missed the sunrise this morning. You can''t make this stuff up/

A shame. Nobody has faith in the judicial system so they take it into their own hands. I wouldn't object if everybody just had brooms. Might even be fun. But tire irons and baseball bats? Somebody could get hurt! Five bucks says liquor was involved.

The funny thing is that if you went back far enough, you'd find they were all cousins to some degree.

You are right
Races in Marion:

Black (62.5%)
White Non-Hispanic (36.1%)
Hispanic (1.0%)
Two or more races (0.6%)

They could have only been either black or white, maybe it was Michael Jacksons Ghost that incited the riot.

As long as it's cheap or free. At current black market prices people not only fight over it but kill for it.

For some reason I thought it was blacks.
Just because it happened in Alabama some of these posters that think they are superior start talking in stereotypes just as bad as the ones they think Southerners are guilty of.

yeah you thought they were black because those good white folks couldnt possibly act this way, and it was too far from mexico.....must have been those terrible southern black folks you saw on the television.
