The American Civil Liberties Union will not be outside of any Chick-Fil-A restaurants in Hinds County this week.
The famous civil liberties watchdog group will be focusing its attentions on Hindsâ€™ recent ordinance making it illegal for individuals to wear sagging pants.
The ACLU claims that the laws and others like it unfairly target black men and it says that the law is a violation of freedom of expression.
Fights, stabbings and frequent gunfire sound like a description of the Old West.
This is a sad reality for the law abiding residents of Town Creek Square Apartments in West Point. So much so that West Point Police Chief Tim Brinkley is treating the small complexâ€™s violence problems as an issue of public safety.
â€śWe recognize that we have a public safety issue with Town Creek Apartments,â€ť Brinkley said on Friday, just after talking to the apartmentâ€™s management â€śWe have strived to work with the complex managers to make that apartment complex a safer environment for the residents.â€ť
