Residents of E. 12th Street inventoried the damage after a shootout between a youth on a porch and three opponents in the street.

Two women said they were sitting on their front porch when they saw three black males wearing jump suits come from an empty lot and begin firing at O'Shea Smith on his porch. They said Smith fired back.

One house had a bullet hole at the left front and another shot that went through a window into a 55" TV.

At the Smith house, officers found a bullet under the mattress where he sleeps and another on a dresser in front of a TV.

Witnesses said one of the trio was Robert "Bibop" Allen, 19. He was charged with aggravated reckless endangerment and aggravated vandalism.

One witness said he had posted threats against Smith on Facebook earlier that day.

Dawn Dunn of Tyner Crossing Drive arrived home to find that her rear door had been forced open.

The thief got into her jewelry box.

She said it was "not real jewelry" and the total value was about $60.

Police spotted a black male walking down the middle of Brainerd Road near Tuxedo Avenue yelling at the top of his lungs.

The other noticeable aspect was that his pants were down around his ankles.

Officers advised him to go home.

But they took him into custody when he continued to yell and was almost hit by multiple cars.

They said Maurice Stewart, 43, had a clear pipe with steel wool - the type used in smoking cocaine.

Harold Smith said he found a wallet lying in the middle of Merriam Street.

It had the license inside of Alan Chandler.

There was also about $400 in cash.

He asked around and a white female said she knew Mr. Chandler and would get the wallet to him.

The finder got to thinking later that maybe the woman didn't really know Mr. Chandler and was going to help herself to the money.

He tried to find her to no avail.

Neighbors know here as "Nay Nay."

Set Up A Council On Love, Not A Council On Hate - And Response

In Mayor Berke's April 19 version of the Berke Bulletin, he announced plans to establish a Council on Hate and indicated a focus on tolerance. I beg of him to reconsider that plan. One problem in Chattanooga and in other places in America is that there are some people who have already established an informal version of a Council on Hate. I suggest that a more productive plan ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: Corker And ‘The Code’

Of all the vows, pledges, and bonds born unto the human race, nothing overrides “The Code.” It is an unwritten but deeply important knowledge that men should abide with equal respect, fierce loyalty, and chivalrous understanding of one another. For example, The Code dictates you must not and can never date a good friend’s ex-girlfriend, or ex-wife. Rather, you respect your friend ... (click for more)
