      Incredible NewsCh3. This is nowhere near Southeast Memphis but in an area affectionately referred to as ‘little Mexico City’. It’s the weekend so you must have an intern writing your news copy

    Crime be everwhere…yes it is but in predominantly black towns it’s murder assault and robbery. In predominantly white towns it’s petty theft and occasional assault. Or is the fbi lying?

    I think we all can agree, that something needs to be done about the way things are run in this town, not to mention the entire country. I have always enjoyed Daniel 2:44, it says , “In the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed. And this kingdom will not be passed on to any other people. It will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms, and it alone will stand forever.” It makes me think that we have something to look forward to and it comforts me knowing that. I’ll pray for the victims and hope for better days for all of us. Thanks

      I don’t think that passage reads all that well in the modern context. Modern civilized nations do not conquer one another. It is dangerous to use Iron Age references to advocate present-day behavior.

        Comrade, I would like to know what Russia is doing, what the Palestinians are trying to do Isreal, and what ISIS (the Nation of Islam) is trying to do to the rest of the world.

        A hundred years from now the fingers you used to type out your words will be attached to a corpse rotting in a forgotten grave. God’s word will still be here.

        “The grass withers, the flower fades,
        But the word of our God stands forever.”

        Isaiah 40:8

    This report seems to have left out the fact that the victims were hispanic and targeted by black criminals. Seems like something that would be important to pass on to the readers.

    Black gangbangers targeting Hispanics.

    Memphis needs to look at this growing problem. And stop apologizing for these cruel, primitive, feral criminals.
