what's going on? do you think the stress is getting to some of our sistas who are in the circle of politics? is stress getting to all of us in ways we don't recognize? what about you in your life. if someone cuts you off while driving - do you "go off?" with it so easy to cuss folks out on the net, and act crazy-as-we-want on the net, do you sometimes have to remind yourself in real life not to act the same way?
what about the way some act on this board - is it a sign that some need anger management classes? a sign that they are brutes in real life or insecure souls who can only act big, bad and seemingly important on the internet?
anyway, here's the story:
Councilwoman Accused of Hitting Mayor
Aug 15 2:57 PM US/Eastern
A city councilwoman has been charged with two misdemeanors for allegedly choking and hitting the mayor during a council meeting.
Theresa Peguese was charged last week with assault and battery and obstruction of a government function during the July 18 council meeting.
Peguese's lawyer, Hugh Davis, said his client, who is black, was provoked when Mayor Larry Salisbury used racial slurs as they argued over a resident's request for relief from the city's zoning ordinance to build a modular home in Ecorse, a city of 11,000 about 10 miles southwest of Detroit.
Salisbury's lawyer, Bill Colovos, denied the racial slur claim and said the councilwoman was "out of control."
"This lady is in need of some serious anger management classes," said Colovos, who said he reviewed the tape of the council meeting and heard no racial slur.
Peguese could spend up to 93 days in jail if convicted.
"We admit that she had physical contact with him, but my client didn't choke him," Davis said
