Re: “Walking while black

Vince, forget race for a second. Think about this law rationally. The point of this article is to show that there is a law on the books not known to most law-makers, yet is somehow being cited more than any other non-traffic offense. The implication is that this law is being used as a short-cut to justice; compromising the rights of alleged offenders. If, as you suggest, Vince, the subject was doing something else wrong he should be arrested for his wrong-doing, not for his physical location. From what I gather there is no signs in the Atlanta-area that read "Known Drug Area, No Standing Here." Therefore ordinary citizens have no idea that they are subject to arrest, simply by where they stand. That kind of police power is what we see in Orwell's 1984, and should not exist in the United States. Now "open-minded" Vince, lets look at this law from a racial standpoint. Have you ever been DC-6ed? From your comment, I am guessing that this article neither you, nor anyone you know has ever heard of this law before reading this article. Looks like you are lucky enough not to live in what police call a "known drug area." It seems however, that a lot of African Americans do. I guess its easy to keep an "open mind" on laws that you will never have to deal with. I don't know what you teach, but I hope its not this garbage that you preach. Ms. Abkowitz, please keep us posted on what happens with this law. Thank you for bringing truth to Atlanta.

Re: “Homewreckers

What a fantastic article. The only problem I see is the timing. How can creative loafing allow such an important subject fly under the radar during the holiday season? More people must know about abusive creditors and Ms. Abkowitz does a tremendous job teaching us about their manipulative ways. I demand a reprint!

Re: “Waterlogged

I'm disappointed that CL has tools like JS commenting on their great articles

Re: “Their cost to bear

This article hits the nail on the head. I am a graduate student and I am going through the same issues as the subject in this article. I feel like Alyssa knows me very well
