Fugitive Bobby Smith captured December 9, 2013
One day I will visit this site and read a comment that is about a human instead of a race. I am hoping that race did not matter, performance and the safety of the citizens of this area and visitors and those passing throughs was the reason and that this person does not file and if he attempts to file that no one takes the case. Right is only right. Most black people want what everyone else wants--the right to live a happy and productive life, knowing that we have earned what we have..
I agree, it was way overtime for them to get this guy off the streets before more innocent victims were harmed. Bad thing is that the people who died did not have to at the hands of this person if the police dept. had acted sooner.
Now here I am with the right credentials: 16 years of library experience, a B.S. in Library and Information Services, and enrolled in a Media Specialist program and couldn't find a job anywhere. I was told that they wanted someone with teaching experience, well I went and got teaching experience and still no job. I am tired of "who you know" being the main criteria for getting a job in this area. (not just Albany),
I beg the differ, he is not the worst, George W. Bush is the worst, look at all this crap he put our country through and Obama has been trying to clean up his mess his whole presidency.
What is funny to me regarding the "N" word is that teens call each that word regardless of their color. I worked in a group home for teens with substance abuse problems and the majority of them were White and it boggled my mind to hear one White boy call another White boy they end word and when I acked them about it, all of the guys, Black and White corrected me and told that it was how they greeted each other and the did not reallize the negative aspects of the word, which is bastardzation of "negro." This is the most racist thing I have ever came across, I always proudly said that in the south, it didn't matter what color the skin if you passed by someone sitting on the porch or doing something the yard, you would receive the wave of a hand or nodding of the head.
I had the opportunity to meet her when i interviewed for a position with the system and she had a pleasant personality and we spent quite a bit of time discussing the library and information industry. My condole scenes to her family and friends. May she rest in peace.
