Fact is, The Augusta Chronicle (among others) distorted statements said by Parent Committee Spokesperson & Leader: Dr. Beckles and the group of concerned parents who are witnesses to the injustice, abuse of power, and corruption performed by Principal Kim Davis, Superintendent Frank Roberson, Tim Spivey, Missoura Ash, and members of the B.O.E.!! Augusta Chronicle reporter (calling on her private cellphone), Tracey McManus twisted statements said by Rev. Beckles about the rally on 6/5/2013, in a recorded conversation he had with McManus through speakerphone in front of witnesses, who clearly remember Dr. Beckles, refusing to discuss anything about his employment history, and wanted to keep the focus on the issue of kids being bullied in school, and The Richmond County School System, failing to do anything about it! McManus stated that she "would only print news about the meeting parents had with the B.O.E.", and deliberately lied to Rev. Beckles & The Parents who were listening, and printed a fabrication about what was said in her article on 6/6/2013- in The Augusta Chronicle!! The Augusta Chronicle is notorious for changing words said by people & printing misleading or false statements, that's why they are a disreputable & racist newspaper business! Tracey McManus deliberately changed the focus from protecting children from being mistreated by Davis, to verbally attacking & lying about a respected Church Leader and the concerned parents who all came to him for help, to represent them, and for doing what is right in protecting kids from a crazy out-of-control Principals like Kimberly W. Davis, Joretta Akpo-Sanni, and corrupt school administrators (Tim Spivey, Frank Roberson, and Missoura Ash) of the Augusta B.O.E.! And The Augusta Chronicle continues to print more lies: in their 6/8/2013 issue They printed that they were voted as being the best newspaper in America!!! By an organization that doesn't even exist! Tracey McManus also lied in her 6/6/2013 issue, stating that she contacted the Human Resource Dept. of New Orleans Police Dept., when they told me, she never called them, to check Dr. Beckles employment history with them. And in New Orleans; Security Officer & Police Officer- ARE CONSIDERED THE SAME JOB!! And no matter what law enforcement agency you are with- YOU WORK WITH THE NEW ORLEANS POLICE DEPARTMENT!! Plus she never produced the name of the New Orleans person that she allegedly contacted!! The Augusta Chronicle (as witnessed by several parents) did not state all the facts pertaining to the 6/5/2013 B.O.E. Meeting, and Tracey McManus and her friend Susan McCord (another lousy & racist reporter), committed to helping the corrupt Principal, PTA President, & B.O.E., cover up their incompetence and conceal the truth! Woolfolk "The phony", and his "so-called " group of parents advocating for Davis, were mostly Teachers and School Personnel- NOT PARENTS OF CHILDREN THAT GO TO COPELAND! The Chronicle & Media erroneously stated that Davis's Supporters also had a Petition of Signatures to keep Davis as Principal, was never presented or produced!!  (Aug 14, 2013 | post #6)

THE TRUTH IS SPREADING & NEW CIVIL RIGHTS HEROES ARE SPEAKING OUT AGAINST RACISM & INJUSTICE IN THE SOUTH! The articles on Parents confronting Superintendent Roberson & the B.O.E., and Principal Kim Davis response to allegations of her misconduct (which was all proven factual in previous news reports & eye witness statements)- Kim Davis's public statement was a complete fabrication and a deliberate "Damage Control" effort, to falsely attack the character of a respected Church Leader, and social activist who was only protecting his son & defending other children who all have been mistreated or abused by disgraceful School Principal Kimberly Davis!! At first, the Local Media substantiated all of Rev. Beckles & other concerned Parents' claims of injustice by The Copeland Elementary School Principal, but on 6/5/2013, after these Parents led by Rev. Dr. Beckles marched to the B.O.E., and met with Mr. Roberson and the corrupt administrators, some of the facts, videos, statements & content was altered to make Rev. Beckles & the concern parents an appear dishonest or taking advantage of immoral school officials?!? WJBF, WFXG, and The Augusta Chronicle- all omitted facts, footage, threats by Roberson, and recorded statements proving that Dr. Beckles & the other parents was telling the truth and presented evidence during their meeting with Roberson & the B.O.E., at NO time did the News accurately report the Historic Civil Rights March or Parents confronting a disreputable Superintendent! And refused to report or print that Rev. Beckles & the parents DID have & presented documented proof, along with a petition of over 300 signatures to back up their claims! Instead, false or misleading reports about another petition (which was never produced) was presented to keep Kim Davis from being removed, and photos of Davis's Supporters, was reported that they were parents, when most of the people were in fact; Copeland Elementary Employees, and their Leader PTA President Woolfolk was a fraud (no one as ever heard about him and he is under investigation for embezzling PTA funds)!!  (Aug 14, 2013 | post #5)

Letter to Channel 12 News: Parents wish to give their response on Latest Scandel with Augusta/Richmond County Public Schools!! Augusta Concerned Parents Committe Chairman: Rev. Dr. Franklyn V. Beckles, Jr., and some Richmond County Parents would like to meet with a reporter to publically give our response to the Latest Richmond County Public Schools/ Frank Roberson Scandel: Allowing Bus Drivers to abandon children, leaving one at the side of the road, and another at a bus stop!! Something needs to be done, to effect change in This Failing Richmond County/B.O.Educati on System of incomepetence! Roberson, publically stated "That there is no problems in Richmond County Schools"; yet, he as endorsed & supported Teachers & Principals that have done or been accused of criminal actions towards children! We need "Channel 12 on your side", to get what community leaders & parents have to say about how Frank Robinson is handling these horrible situations, dealing with our kids in our community! Roberson has also publically called protesting parents & Dr. Beckles- liars, slandered us, and ignored the mounting witness statements, petition signatures, and legal paperwork- calling for the removal of at least one of these bad & negligent Principals!! He wanted proof? The constant scandels in the news; not paying teachers, not firing criminally negligent teachers, and allowing bus drivers to abandon children!!! A few months ago, a teacher at Copeland Elementary School was arrested to locking a child in a closet! What will it take for the entire community to back -Civil Rights Advocate: Dr. Beckles, in making a positive difference in our troubled Richmond County Public Schools!?! Currently, Dr. Beckles (Committee Leader), and several parents have hired an Attorney (Travers Paine), to represent them in an upcoming class action lawsuit against The Richmond County Board of Education.  (Aug 14, 2013 | post #3)

RACISM CONTINUES TO GROW IN AMERICA!!! Adam Jones: Banana thrown his way at AT&T Park: Just last week, a statue of Jackie Robinson and Pee Wee Reese in Brooklyn was vandalized with racist slurs and Hitler references. It was another reminder like we needed one that "post-racial America" is a fairytale until further notice. A statue, made of stone, is bad enough. But Adam Jones of the Baltimore Orioles is a person, and what happened to him at AT&T Park on Sunday was just as unacceptable. Jones, who is black, said somebody threw a "banana towards my direction" in the ninth inning of Baltimore's 10-2 victory against the San Francisco Giants. Bananas have been used, time immemorial, in racist depictions of blacks as being subhuman. In 2011, a white fan threw a banana peel at NHL player Wayne Simmonds, who is black, during a game in London, Ont. Canada. Worse than graffiti, what happened to Simmonds and Jones is tantamount to being spat upon, with an added insult of racism. In 2013, such behavior cannot be tolerated. Jones expressed his feelings on Twitter, using (understandably) NSFW language: I want to thank whatever [slapd---] threw that banana towards my direction in CF in the last inning. Way to show ur class u jackass. In a way, Jones is being kind by using a (NSFW) slang term used to describe a dunce who doesn't quite know what he or she is doing. After sending his tweet, Jones fielded replies from more ignorant fans defending the banana thrower. As a result, Jones says: Good chance this means I get off social media soon That would be a shame. Nobody deserves to be taunted with racism, especially not Jones, who with the occasional exception engages fans on Twitter and in real life in a consistently friendly way. He's not perfect, but Major League Baseball needs more guys like Jones on social media, not fewer. Update: The Giants say, via the San Francisco Chronicle, that they're reviewing surveillance video. Hopefully, between ballpark security cameras and any live witnesses, the Giants can figure out who threw the banana and ban him from games. He or she should be and needs to be embarrassed. And Adam Jones is owed an apology.  (Aug 14, 2013 | post #2)

Jackie Robinson statue defaced / with racial slurs: "racism continue to grow in america!!" Civil Rights Leaders Unite / Dr. Frank Beckles SPEAKS OUT!! United States Civil Rights Leaders Speak out: A statue that honors sports icon **ckie Robinson has been defaced with racial *lurs and *azi references Despite an African-American President, racism continues to grow in America. Even racist *umb ***tards who **wardly use **ony names to conspire and attack anyone who speaks out against racism online!! Robinson broke sports' race barrier in 1947 as a member of the Dodgers, a story brought back into the mainstream recently because of the Robinson movie "42" that came out earlier this year. The film shows and history knows, Robinson had to overcome the racism of the era to become a athletic star. Racial epithets were thrown his way like they were hail. You'd like to think our society is beyond such things in 2013, but then an incident like this happens and you realize sometimes you give people too much credit. Even if just a few isolated, racist-filled ***tards are responsible, yet there are still ***tard women & men, who will say "Where is your proof?", "You're just making all of this up", and have a nerve to question anyone's credibility who speaks out against racism!?!- They are just *tupid!! And these racists are not discouraging anyone, because the Civil Rights LEGACY & it's true heroes, will carry on forever!! And no one can stop that!! Work started almost immediately to clean up the statue. When **upid **wards & racist ***tards like: The Augusta Chronicle, Dr. Janet Larson, Sarah Palin, Paula Deen, Christopher James, Kimberly Davis or Mel Gibson attack other respected African-American Heroes (like Stevie Wonder, Tiger Woods, Dr. Franklyn V. Beckles, Jr., Wesley Snipes or Kobie Bryant)- they just attack themselves; they attack their own credibility, by proving to the world, how racist & ignorant they really are!! Americans, should be better than that- like the Constitution says; "All men are created equal"! When some americans become intolerant to admit or fight against racial injustice, They *amage the great reputation that This Country tries to maintain, they attack the legacy of America!! I would expect that only from *vil people, not good people- because those would be the ones, who would be smart enough to rally beside the African-American heroes!!  (Aug 14, 2013 | post #1)

Janet Larson MD / Gynecology / Aiken South Carolina & Augusta Georgia: Dr Janet Larson / Gynecology / Augusta Georgia United States Don't believe her many online advertisements or reviews, she and her staff falsify good reviews online, to mislead new patients. The truth is that she is a horrible Gynecologist! She has lots of complaints filed against her by several patients & former employees with the Better Business Bureau and medical review boards for: racism, medical negligence, malpractice, and medical insurance fraud! Many patients have publicly stated how incompetent and uncaring she is; complaints such as: neglecting patients in desperate need of medical care, discriminating against African-American patients & their families, making pregnant women wait for medical care for hours, and medical staff attacking patients who voice concerns! Don't become her patient or go to any of her medical clinics!!!  (Aug 14, 2013 | post #8)

Collier Management Company, LLC / Apartments & Housing Landlords United States Incompetent apartment management staff, especially an *diot -(the brother of the business owner), who they put in charge of all the maintenance staff, who lies to tenants and sends *tupid technicians to routinely fail to make maintenance repairs, fix damaged, or defective mechanisms in the home!! They continue to fail to properly repair or replace an out-dated AC unit, that is older than the 60's!! Which is why the prior tenants of the home, moved out, and Collier Management has been constantly messing up ever since; poor property management, constant work orders not being neglected, and residents of Collier Management Homes or Apartments are consistently filing complaints against the Company, and one technician told me; that the Collier Supervisors can't even properly manage their own employees- they keep firing their maintenance workers, & they fired another technician, last week!!

Roberson & Davis are Liars! THERE IS A PROBLEM IN RICHMOND COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS, especially when it's educators keep lying to the community who pay their salaries! The local media didn't even follow the group of parents out of the B.O.E., bldg., because they all were busy conspiring to conceal all the facts or events, and print lies in The Augusta Chronicle, to cover up the injustice toward children, by making Roberson & the B.O.E., look good! The Media deliberately omitted slander & verbal attacks Roberson & B.O.E Staff made against Rev. Beckles and the parents- THAT'S WHY THEY LEFT!! McManus printed that she (6/6/2013) asked scandalous Fire Chief Chris James, about Rev. Beckles career as a Firefighter, and James lied, stating that Rev. Beckles hadn't worked there in several years (a flat out lie!! -He is internationally well-known as a Firefighter, Chaplin, Private School Director, & Respected Civil Rights Activist). In fact he had been employed at Augusta Fire Department for two years, and only stopped working, because his was injured on Duty, and was receiving paychecks then- Worker's Comp. Benefits, until 2011!! And it was ruled that it was Chris James's fault for him being injured on duty! He was the Training Supervisor (investigated numerous times for misconduct & harassing employees) for The Fire Department, and he allowed & encouraged firefighters to physically attack, mistreat each other causing injuries, and he would deny medical treatment to new firefighters (as witnessed by many firefighters including Rev. Beckles and Sloan Griffin and they reported their concerns to The Augusta Chronicle in (2010). Which caused Chris James & Chief Willis to be investigated, and in 2012, Chief Willis was fired for misconduct!! Chris James (a character witness?? Don't make me laugh!!) His Augusta Fire Department as also (like the Augusta Police Dept., & School Board) have been documented & investigated for crimes, corruption, racism and scandalous misconduct behavior FOR YEARS!! Want more proof, just check out The Ronnie Few Scandal in the 1990's, and the cases against Sheriff Ronnie Strength- employing & protecting corrupt deputies like Jack Rackliff, and maintaining detention centers that support false arrests and denying minority inmates medical treatment or phone calls!! Don't get me started on police corruption in AIKEN COUNTY!!

The Augusta Chronicle slanders & lies about Respected Civil Rights Leader: Rev. Dr. Franklyn V. Beckles, Jr., for advocating against racial injustice in Georgia-Carolina, and speaking out against racist law enforcement agencies in Aiken/Augusta- falsely arresting African-American Men, who stand up against Racism!!! Many Racists in The Georgia-Carolina, including Corrupt Law Enforcement Agencies support Zimmerman's acquittal, and encourage many other racist *egenerate *astards, to commit other racial crimes against African-American Men -(but racists they'll do anything to protect the rights of themselves, women & *hites)!! Respected new Civil Rights Leader; Dr. Frank Beckles, Jr., plans to lead another Historic March, in downtown Augusta, GA., in protest against the Zimmerman acquittal and the growing racial discrimination & unrest against African-American Men. On September 2nd 2013!! The Augusta Chronicle & newspaper reporter; Tracey McManus are idiots, instead of accurately reporting the news on 6/5/2013, they with the blessing of the B.O.E., chose to railroad an Honorable man & Church Pastor along with followers and church members, who are all good parents with legitimate concerns, and evidence to prove all of the misconduct allegations against The Richmond County School Board & especially Dishonest School Principal Kimberly Davis!! Rumors are the Media and Board Members was bribed by Davis, Copeland Teachers & Roberson to keep their mouths closed!! All to conceal corruption, and protect a psychotic school principal who did, and has been mistreating & wrongfully suspending children for years!! In Davis's televised response to her accusers; she & the Copeland staff are so stupid, they couldn't even get Dr. Beckles's name right, they kept calling him Mr. Green, and witnesses heard him, repeatedly tell the school staff & Davis, that his name was "Rev. Dr. Beckles", and he had always signed his name that way!! Tyrone McCord, lied when he stated that Dr. Beckles told him the opposite!! If this incompetent principal & lousy B.O.E., cant' even get his name right, How are we to still believe their lies, about being able to effectively run an elementary school with no misconduct?!? When a Teacher at Copeland (Ms. Wynn) was recently arrested for locking a child in the Closet!! THAT'S WHAT PROMPTED REV. BECKLES & OTHER PARENTS TO START QUESTIONING KIM DAVIS'S LEADERSHIP!! Because She allowed it to happen, and she never fired the Teacher!! I REST MY CASE!  (Aug 14, 2013 | post #2)
