no justalocalguy, this is a newspaper and comments can be made as long as its ok with proper language, we do not know all the facts about this incident. To make comments about someone's name, where he lives is also not right so who are U to say anything about it.... This is what free speech is, the ability to comment on things...get it

@John Just because you don't know the facts about an incident isn't a reason for you to assume others don't; because some of us do. My point is that you only get to "speak" here at the pleasure of the editors. "Free Speech" is only meaningful in the context of government limitations on speech, and has nothing at all to do with the comment section of a newspaper website.

@JustALocalGuy, thanks for the lesson on assuming things, I do not assume anything I guess U know about the incident and your more than welcome to that information but for others to make assumptions is not correct and when comments are made it not right either.....I guess this is my civics lesson for today thanks so very much....have a good day....
