    Hellooo? Nobody remembers the news from last year??? They had,”Active shooter DRILLS,” at Oak Court Mall, Wolf chase Mall, and an emergency drill at the airport. I’m guessing that it’s STRICTLY coincidence that two out of thee locations have had “incidents,” at them.
    Granted Wolfchase could’ve gone a lot worse. But still.
    “Keep calm. It’s just a drill.”

        Mean while the wrong suspects were still thieves (shoplifting?), and had stolen guns, and pimptite shouldn’t have been driving anyway. Nothing shocking here

  • Paul Fischer

    I’ll give Oak Court and Wolfchase another 10 years before the become like Hickory Hills or the Raleigh Springs Malls at the rate the thugs are taking over.

    NEWS CHANNEL 3 please require REAL sign in’s to stop most of the racial comments. You are not helping your community by allowing this behavior and you’re well aware of it.

      Hey Michelle,

      It’s far past time to move this stuff to the front & center, dontcha think???

      It’s not the fraternities or the kids in Lakeland and Collierville perping these vicious crimes.

      • Michelle

        Marsha this not the way to bring it to the front. Face to face is the way. Hiding behind anonymous comments is not.. unless you’re an anonymous instigator as well. Hmmm I bet you are. I have the education not to egg anonymous comments on. If you want to “bring it front and center” use your real FB or other log-in info. Pssst..Your I.P. address is showing…catch ya later gator.

      • MonkeeSeeMunkeeDo

        Hey Marsha, stop defending the apes and their subhuman behavior….the truth hurts, don’t it?

      • MissTee

        Michelle, of course, you’re right. These trolls have nothing better to do than spread their vile poo all over what should be a legitimate news site. But they would never have the guts to identify themselves and stand behind their evil beliefs. Like all racists, they are cowards.

      • MissTee

        Long Gone, They don’t have the stones to go after anyone or even to reveal their name. They’ve never been accountable for anything they’ve said or done. They’ve never had to be responsible for anything. These are guys that rarely leave their moms basement. It’s a shame they choose to waste their life intent on spreading ignorance.

  • Bytemeagain

    Otis, Theodis, Dewon……shocker. I couldn’t be any more surprised if their names were Pooky, Ray Ray, and Deshuntae.

    Half the people on here making these rude and racist comments need to get a life, a hobby, and a job (I’m sure they probably don’t have a career if all they do is go around this forum making illiterate comments) you people making these comments are low-lifes and the scum of the earth…you all are responsible for the crime. Your ignorance proves it.

  • tamija avant

      • Elismom

        Joe censored…you sir or possiblt ma’am are an idiot. You d be censored because it should be a crime for you to spread the stupidity like you do. It’s no one’s fault as to why your life is substandard. You need to acquire some type of life, you bigot. Everytime I see you one of your posts, I laugh because your unhappiness and jealousy shows.

      • Joe Censored

        Elismom, your MCS “edumakation” is showing… or lack there of. Please work on your spelling skills and while you are at it, try some complete sentences as well. Now you can go and have yourself a wonderful day!!!

      • MissTee

        Elismom, I think you might give him an aneurism with words like “substandard”. Way too many letters and syllables for his poor brain to process.

      • Elismom

        I see you’re still going around posting your ignorance…it’s really sad and laughable. I have made a vow to follow you on this forum and troll around just like you do. See you around joe…I’ll try my best to post right behind you when you post your garbage…I can’t guarantee I’ll be on every post because I have an actual life…but trust me, I will be there because it’s inevitable that you’ll post something ignorant…see you around chimp!!!

  • Spell check this BI-TCH

    to all black people….if there were two apt houses side by side and they both were great bldgs but one building was all white tenants and one was all black people, which one would you rather live in??? or the same with a neighborhood or a street? see that, we are ALL RACISTS when it comes to gatherings or dwellings. also the politicians who say we are all free and can live anywhere only want black votes because they live in gated communities with a no blacks allowed clauses in their by laws hidden in their heads……black and white alike are suspicious of one another……there are black people that are deep dark black that shows not a drop of white blood ever entered their family blood lines. why is that? you want your race pure like we do but yet you raise a ruckus when a parent doesn’t want their child to marry out of their white race and same for black parents. farakhan (sp) gave you more ammunition to hate the white race and the blonde haired blue eyed devils etc and you inhabit the entire welfare and social services depts and switchboards of the entire establishement and if you see or hear a white person, you treat us like garbage and give all the goodies to your black people and you manipulate the system and steal from it and wind up with enough welfare checks to stuff a mattres and drive new cars with food stamps while whites starve or sleep in cars…..get off it already like you told the jews who died for you for civil rights in the 60’s,
