Just like when there is violence and drug abuse in the black community, FOX4 is there to report it and glorify it but when the same things are happening every singe day in INDP, OP, OLATHE, its never reported..>Same damn thing!! SHUT THE HELL UP!!

She assaulted a law enforcement officer. Since she was a first time felon, she asked to plead guilty to a misdemeanor and was given a short jail term and probation.

Right on and wonder if daddy dearest ever ate his BIBLE from front to back like he said he would.Guess since she plead guilty then she wasn't really guilty and so he doesn't have to do what he said standing on the steps of the court house. Don't think I would want to hear his preaching, just say what you want and then hope no one remembers, but don't do what the BIBLE says. My baby is innocent of being a spoiled brat and making a big deal out of nothing and causing a big stink then leaving, My GOD doesn't say to act like that. OOOPS do unto others as you would have them do unto you!. So since she acted totally like an idiot to everyone then we need to act like that to her. I'm just glad she left here and we don't have to be reminded of ignorance every day looking at her even though we could all use a laugh daily!!

Hi again "bbit"..., by your reference to "he", are you asking about "Glad Dawg" 'or' "Robert"?

#1 - "Glad Dawg" is/was a black lady Attorney-Of-Law who lives/lived in Kentucky...

#2 - "Robert" lives in/lived in the Bootheel,(thinking perhaps Kennett or Dunklin County).

I don't remember if Robert ever 'mentioned' his place of employment...

********SHOW_ME!********where? ??*******
Show us 'where',(in what/which), local paper, DDD or otherwise where the PAPER made such a statement?--->as, and I quote you, " the people that tried their best to get riots started here last year, were from out of town. "<---:

WHERE? Point us in the right direction of ANY such thing... Show us 'where' the DDD EVER said such a statement???

As I recall, it was ME, myself and *I* that made such statements over there and NOT the paper itself...
