Re: “Charges of 'institutional racism,' possible grade changing fuels North Atlanta High School drama (Update)

First of all, has anyone at APS officially said anything about racism? Has Davis made the accusation of racism? If so, I must have missed it. As I understand it, the whole idea that this was because of supposed racism was started by the principal and a teacher who was accused of racism. I don't know if any of it's true or not, but it sounds like someone has a guilty conscience about it.

Mygrant wants a meeting to fight a charge that hasn't been levied?! Go pound sand, man. Georgia is a right to work state; you can be fired if your boss doesn't like the tie you wore to work. Stuff happens. Get over it and go back into retirement.

I'll tell you what's bullshit: getting drop-kicked by a monkey.

Re: “Bizarre crimes from Atlanta police reports

Man, I've seen that dude at the skatepark. He's obviously a homeless guy who's been displaced by all the work along the beltline. So he's not a model citizen but I don't think that warrants being taken to jail. Come one. Go catch a real criminal.

Re: “Peachtree-Pine shelter eviction order granted

I have mixed feelings. As a property owner in nearby Old 4th Ward, this is welcome news, to be sure. At the same time, I can't help but feel for the homeless people who have grown to depend on this place. I really do feel that in the long run, this place closing is likely to be a good thing for most of them, however.

I was homeless once and lived out of a backpack for 3 months (after the VW van I had been living in burned up on the freeway). I never sought refuge in a shelter. I slept in the courtyard of a suburban office park which provided me shelter both from the wind and the eyes of passersby (aka: cops). It was a lonely existance but it was close to my minimum wage warehouse job and the community college I was attending. I shudder to think where I'd be now if I'd gone instead to an isolated pocket of poverty like Peachtree-Pine.

Re: “UPDATE: Suspected Morningside gunman in custody; whole thing started over an apparent Facebook feud

The cops blew up a "suspicious backpack". Doesn't mean there was a bomb in it. I'm still calling shenanigans.

Re: “UPDATE: Suspected Morningside gunman in custody; whole thing started over an apparent Facebook feud

I want to go on record saying this is going to be hilarious when APD finally has to admit that this is nothing more than a guy who shot a BB gun and through some firecrackers at his neighbor's house.
