LOL. The last time you posted was Christmas Eve of last year. I guess you wanted to update your books or something.

The official number of homicides for the CITY OF SAVANNAH as of July 20, 2019 is 14

http://www.savannahga.gov/ArchiveCen...File/Item/4311

Of course that does not include homicides in unincorporated Chatham County or the 6 municipalities with their own police departments. The most recent homicide this weekend happened in Pooler (second one there this year).

Anybody who watches local TV news knows there's just as much (or more) violent crime just across the river in South Carolina where Jasper and Beaufort counties combined had 5 homicides during July when Savannah had just one. Just saying.

Middle of the day in that area. Unusual, but kudos to the construction workers.

awesome for the construction workers. They deserve a commendation and some kind of reward. Ridiculous we don't execute murderers when it is not a question of who did it. If there is any doubt I would not support it, but however if it is in daylight and we know who did it... fry 'em. Nope perp will be out in 15 and who knows maybe do it again.

SL You are a very smart person and I enjoy most of your input here but "executing murderers when it is not a question of who did it" needs you to think further. Seriously. I have been against this practice all my life and if you would check the data as to how many THOUSANDS are executed "where there was no question of who did it" I think you might change your opinion.


Think about it like this: It isn't what you don't know that gets you in trouble. Its what you KNOW FOR SURE that just isn't so.

You do know ATF "Alcohol, Tobacco, & Firearms" are federal agents & this makes them police? Their main mission is to focus on the illegal sales & trafficking of firearms.

The war on drugs started in 1973, & we still have a war on drugs in 2019, 46 years later. It's not a war if it never ends. We need to explore alternatives to prohibition & deal with drugs from a health & harm reduction viewpoint.

okay well what about life in prison? But they better work 7 days a week making license plates or something. Seriously. No HBO and working out to get jacked; then getting out after 5 years of a life sentence to do it again or something like that which seems happens here all the time. I was venting. I'm open to ideas. But here is the problem- intentional murderers where ok it's like 99.999% certain they did it (ie here, in daylight; unless he has a clone) and they get paroled in a few years. How about they work for the public good inside the jail the rest of their life. Non violent offenders get way too much jail time but it seems like murderers get way too little

I'll buy that. Agreed. Prison, under the" right" conditions, ie: solitary confinements for abusing the rules, is not exactly Club Med. lol
