Speak Out

The Marshall Democrat-News invites readers to share their views and questions on any issue. Open discussions are often useful and enlightening. Criticism is acceptable as an important part of public conversations, but we expect everyone to treat others with respect. Experience suggests it is best not to post comments while angry. We reserve the right to delete comments that we think include personal attacks, are disrespectful, threatening, obscene or in other ways objectionable. Anyone who repeatedly violates this policy will be banned from participating in our forums.

Still not a word about the results of the Gestapo checkpoint in this paper. Could that possibly be because they didn't catch a single impaired driver while inconveniencing hundreds. You would think the cops would want people to know how effective they are at protecting us.

Or maybe they are just afraid to publish the complete lack of results coupled with the fact that a good looking, slightly overweight, devastatingly charismatic black guy totally punked them with a FAIR DUI FLYER and was able to make it through without opening his window or directly interacting with the thugs-in-uniform besides holding the flyer and his ID against the truck window while listening to NWA's most famous song.

You're right, that was a little over the top. I said, "a couple", shoulda said "one" I'm sorry for the confusion. I'll try to be more careful in the future.

Please expand on that statement CB, this should be good.
