Hiding Behind A Cloak Of Anonymity Invites Abuse

Thursday, February 15, 2018

No one, even 800 operating in groups, should be allowed to hide behind a cloak of anonymity. Especially when it results in entire families, the disabled and sick being made homeless without any advance notice and nowhere to go.  This is what Mr. K, a foreigner new to the city, was attempting to expose only a few years ago before being threatened to the point his wife so feared for their safety that they left Chattanooga. Hidden behind all the good deeds and acts of charity used as a cover, there still remains a level of wickedness that takes place in the city, and shows just how little Chattanooga actually cares for its homeless, even children.  

The last time I spoke with Mr. K, he was studying for his law degree in another state. He should now have that degree. It's easy to imagine him working in the field of justice and human rights for those in the least position to have a voice to protect themselves.  

Those individuals made homeless should be able to face the accusers, and sue for damages, and be able to financially obtain enough that they will never have to suffer the indignities and fear of ever becoming homeless ever again.

What Happened To Recycle Pickup On Robinson Drive?

Wanting A Publix That Better Suits The Location And Community - And Response

In his opinion piece, “Quit Embarrassing Us,” Rox Exum misses the point. He writes, “I cannot speak for those who oppose the renewal of South Broad Street but…what is puzzling to me is…why more don’t embrace it and join in what our overall community needs the most: our encouragement.” No one who opposes the Publix development in its proposed form opposes the renewal of South ...
