Re: “Family Members View Body Camera Footage of Marcus Peters’ Death

Sounds like another protest is in the works and I am sure Style will be there to cheer it on.

Re: “The New Guy

Why give more tax money to such an inefficient organization as RPS? Its already proven its ineptitude multiple times. Heck, it cant even calculate the grades of its students correctly. Let him clean house, improve efficiencies, cut the bloat, and get the best bang for the bucks it already receives. Then you should talk about giving it any more money. Other wise its being thrown down the same hole as all the other supts who came in like rock stars and left 3 years later.

Re: “The New Guy

Here's an idea. How about instead this guy getting a quarter of a million dollars up front (and then hear him talk about inequity), he gets that money after he accomplishes something. And BTW, why doesnt he tackle that "byzantine bureaucratic mess" and get rid of some dead weight and use that savings towards RPS instead of immediately pushing tax increases on an already overtaxed population.

Re: “OPINION: We don’t need a new baseball stadium or new coliseum, but we do need public art

In the meantime we learn that RPS can't properly calculate the GPAs of students yet it will allow other students with excessive unexcused absences and who lack the proper number of credits to graduate on time.

Does anybody associated with RPS, past or present, have any sort of credibility?

Re: “Updated: Mayor Opposed to Council Plans to Use Public-Art Funds

You can not cut your way out of a budget crisis?? Many people do it all the time in their personal budgets. Businesses do it all the time.

Re: “Students Take Gun Violence Protest To Virginia State Capitol

So you state progressives are a bigger % of the non voter population (i.e. too lazy to vote) yet when elections don't go their way they have protest i.e. temper tantrums?
