    RE: Ex-officer enters not guilty plea in beating of grandfather: Because Alabama has been embarrassing the united states since it’s creation. They’re like the redneck, racist cousin who’s always getting locked up for hitting his girlfriend.

    I think their biggest exports are snakes and gum disease.

      RE: Ex-officer enters not guilty plea in beating of grandfather: Matt, it would be comforting if this was a problem only Alabama faces, unfortunately, lack of accountability for officers who use unwarranted violence is a problem affecting all 50 states and territories in America today.
