Where were the African Americans at this African American church?
As one poster commented that their money spends anywhere, this is true. The casino is new and its a business. Surely, there are going to be some problems that have to be worked out. There are going to be some winners and some losers. Perception is key. Different people have different experiences. As far as the employes are concerned, management should treat its employes with respect and pay them for their work. There must be guidelines for employes to follow. It is management's responsibility to manage the business according to these guidelines. There is a grievance process if things happen otherwise. On every job there is a weeding out process, its call probation period. If management does not focus on who and what is right for their business or there will be no business. Gamble responsibly. Don't get mad because the odd are not falling your way. Gambling is a game of chance and if you can afford to take the chance maybe you shouldn't gamble. So, lets not jump ship too fast. Yes, there are other options and individuals have a right to choose. Support Cleveland's casino but do so wisely. Everyone wants to win but in reality we know chance doesn't work that way.
The Fourteenth Amendment, due processs, under our Constitution provided Casey with a jury of her peers that found her "not quilty" of the charges of murder. Fair, well, the law states that she is not guilting. The law states beyond a reasonable doubt. Here, again, doubt was created and Casey walked. Our laws are not totally bad. They are all we have. If it were left up to some media reporters as well as some citizens, there would have been a lynching or a tar and feathering. I support the legal system too some extent because it is better than having lynching or tar and feathering. Forbid that the nation goes back to those days. Una Keenon is a excellent person and was an excellent judge, her mock trial was well taken.
It appears that this individual has a severe problem given that she placed her child in jepardy as well as herself by her excessive use of alcohol. Chances are this isn't her first incident. Alcoholism is a progressive behavior. Granted, this behavior is certainly not healthy. She obviously needs help. Perhaps, this incident may just get her the proper intervention she needs as well as help for her child. Until she has been assessed by a professional who can provide her with some assistence, her needs will go unattended. Some of the comments regarding her condition are well taken. However, some are emotionally laden. Hopefully, the social worker in their career explore the problems of addiction further and become a little more objective in how they approach this disorder. Sometimes, having experience from a personal level has its advantages. Like anything else, there is a need to remain open to learning; particularly, if you are going to impact others' lives. This will come with experience for most. Self-evaluations are always a good start; especially where working in the social field. Nevertheless, this mother and child needs some assistence. HOPE, they will get what is needed in the form of mental health and substance abuse for the mother. In addition, for both, a place in society where they both will be healthy and safe. Incarceration, well, is not always the pancea.
