What the teacher from Monticello is saying is the TRUTH. I have witnessed many altercations from parents to teachers, when I was attending. I do not think the teacher from Monticello was meaning it literally they come out and jump on them physically, but verbally.

I have to say I have seen some pretty good comments and some pretty bogus ones. In the opinion of a former juvenile delinquent, I have to say I can't blame anyone but myself for my actions. That being said, there are real issues that need to be addressed. First of all the city council and the Chamber of Commerce are alone responsible for the poverty in Dermott. Anytime a a big company tries to set up shop, the Chamber shoots them down. This good ol' boy system sickens me. The problem with voting is that there are usually only one or two candidates. I love Floyd Gray as a person, but he is nowhere near qualified enough to turn a city around. But considering his oppostion I probably would have voted for him myself. The truth is, until Dermott can attract jobs, these kids are gonna turn to whatever they can to make money and feed themselves. Unfortunately, that usually means crack cocaine. I don't think people realize that crack has become an epidemic in Dermott. Please leave the teachers alone. Melanie Proffit was the greatest teacher I've ever had and I've been in a lot of schools here in Arkansas. Mrs. Jordan is also an outstanding teacher. To sum it up, Dermott has just as many caring people as any other Delta town but until we can get real leadership to open the doors to industry, Dermott will remain what it is today.....a black hole.

The police dept in dermott SUCKS. Look at the chief.. rape charges.. & many many other potrolmen's tacticks! I have gotten out of alot of tickets by "personal favors" money ..or sex.. for those who can not read between thte lines. This town has been lost to crack heads, thieves, drug addicts, and corrupt city officials. I do not consider myself from Dermott.. I am too ashamed to be a part of that sickness in Dermott. 20 years ago was very different from today. Some people knew to stay on the OTHER side of the tracks. Now.. sheesh... what to say .... They should change the name to Crack Town. I think it all should be bulldozed down & start over, or just forgotten. Such a beautiful town ..... now HELL! There needs to be a fence around the town so no one gets out. Have people live in their own crap, and not spead it. How mant people have died in the last 5 years that has either been from there OR go there. Look at Rusy Lenard.. killed at the car wash in Dermott... Now Bo & the children.. who else can name names..? The list is too long. Look at the Smith family, Mahfouz', and many others. Tos ewho did not leave after graduation.. are still there. Drug addicts, thievs, or whores.

GOD BLESS THIS HELL TOWN !!

Not everyone there are drug addicts, thieves, or whores. Some of the people are just people that love Dermott. You are so ashamed of being from Dermott....well, I'm sure we are just as ashamed of YOU having been from Dermott. By the way, You are the one that admitted to giving "personal favors", money, or
sex in order of getting out of tickets. What does that make you? Maybe Dermott is better off with you not saying that is your hometown.

I do believe that the leadership has failed miserably but, we the citizen have to bear some of the blame. What are we doing to improve the situation other than complaining? If the leaders are not performing let them know with your vote! We as private citizens must be responsible not irresponsible, we can't rely on someone or something else to solve the problems created by us. Corrections start by looking in the mirror and saying to oneself "What have I done to better myself, community, school, church, and ultimately my fellow brother and sister.
I played basketball with Charles Caldwell, we had fun in our beloved town. We had pride about our community. We were a loving community!! What happened? Whenever I go back home it is very depressing. You have people walking around with no sense of purpose or direction. If your purpose each day is to find a rock, joint, or bottle than you are part of the problem not part of the solution. If you are not working and just sitting at home waiting on the government to feed and clothe you, than you are part of the problem. Get control of your community. Let the druggies and criminals know that you want your community back!!
Lastly, for the so called leadership in Dermott, what are you doing!?!?! It appears to me that you are just figure heads and collecting what monies you can collect. Whoever you are, be what the people expect you to be a LEADER!!
I pray for the bereaved family, I love you all!! Ricky is one of my best friends and I hurt for him and his family. God is able to cure all, just have faith in him and things will work out.
Love,
Bobby R. Hawkins
Charles Caldwell and Bobby Hawkins: if you see this please drop me a line at: razorsteven@Safe-mail.net. I'm sorry this happened, but seeing how Dermott has changed, I'm not surprised.

all the best,

It has been almost a year and we hear nothing about what happen to Yolonda or the investigation, just like all the other crimes that happen there. Everybody show their concern for a short while and then seem to foreget and the asshole that do the crime slips trough the crack and do harm again and again. I guess everyone has moved on with their lives and wait on another topic to talk about and do not to solve this shit.

I have a lot of resect for the law enforcement in Dermott. I think they have a good Cheif now. He is a close friend of mine, I am also a close friend with the mayor. I do have to make this statement about one thing there, I went home over thanksgiving and it is sad how you cant even ride around town and look at all the places we hung out at as children with out the state police following you and stopping every car they can, doing the 4 days I was there I saw several cars they stopped around morris booker. It is sad that the city staff lets this go on. The state police job is to assist the city police not take over there job and potrol the city. I am asking those of you who read this to call the mayor and the cheif and complain about this. As for those of you that have not seen this just go on the north side of town and ride, it wont take long. They gave out over 60 DWI's & DUI's Crawfish Festival all to African Americans. 20 of them didn't even Drink, all the ASP told them was it look like you did or called you a drug dealer cause you had a nice car.( again this is no disrepect to the city of Dermott Police force or the Mayor) this is just asking you to take care of your hard working community and those that care and do try and come home. Just because you are of the African Race don't mean we all sell Drugs

Listen to your potty mouth! My God, if I had had my children blown to bits I think I would have at least been respectful enough of their memory not to get on the internet using foul language. You were their mother and should have the decorum to conduct yourself in a manner that shows respect for their memory. Why would you want everyone reading this to know that those babies' mother can't behave like a mature woman? Instead you come across as immature white trash. How you can do this is beyond me. If I had seen my children butchered I wouldn't be able to think about anything except what I could have done to prevent it. Like, for example, not reproducing with ignorant drugged out scum who would slaughter my whole family.Instead you act like it's important where your husband played high school football. Didn't your children matter to you at all? Oh, yes, I forgot. Not much, I guess, or you wouldn't have been found unfit and had them taken away from you. Are you retarded or just mentally unbalanced? At any rate, your priorities certainly seem to be in the wrong order.

For someone to get online and say how proud they are to live in a town after having their children killed in that same town has to have some sort of chemical imbalance or serious mental problem. The more I read what the community is posting about SE AR the more I am thankful to have left the place and never go back. Dermott has always been one of the trashier towns in that area, the community has never seemed to care what their children are doing. I remember wanting to go to the Crawfish Festival but not being allowed to because it was a "black funtion" and many white people would end up hurt or stabbed if they attended. I remember several of my friends being stabbed while walking through the crowds at this festival(that was suppose to put dermott on the maps). None of them seemed to know exactly who stabbed them and I really do not think the police did a good job back then either. I think the law inforcement is just scared of the black communities in that area because if a white person were to say something out of place they would be arrested for even saying something, if a black person stabs or attacks a white person its ok because.... they dont know who did it.. go figure. I think you people need to grow some balls and take back your communities in that area, or stop complaining and sit there and rot and let your children rot.

You know the reason it was like that then is becouse blacks were once treated the say way. So do what they did about it then and shut the hell up. And the police and scared they got it under control but at any party the white folks be drunk and acting creazy. This aint the KKK days we dont say yes sir and yes mam to none of you unless you show us respect.
