I don't know why Union City bothers to have anything nice. As long as there are low-lifes and hoodlum delinquents, restrooms will continue to be vandalized, park areas littered, etc. They don't even have respect for the dead. They knock over tombstones and damage them among other things. What is wrong with these people?

no the cops need to start messing with these little ba****** and stop letting them hang around in groups, start putting some heat on them instead of driving past them.

Well see WTF if they were to question these kids people would start yelling saying that they are "profiling" so the cops are in a "damned it ya do damned if ya don't" Lets get real people you will NEVER respect the job of Law Enforcment Officers mainly because ya'll are never going to even try to understand what they do and what they stand for. Until you guys get with it and climb out of your holes you will never understand.

"Profiling" is what was invented by hoodlums and criminals to keep the heat off them. So... if we accept profiling as a way of life, that means if the cops are looking for a Mexican male, 5'6" tall, etc., that means they can't stop and question anyone who fits that description... that means they'll have to stop and question the little old lady walking down the street ahead or behind the Mexican male who is 5'6" tall. It's all B.S.

Excuse me....but it isn't the "cops" job to raise other peopls brats. Where are the parents of these disrespectful low life delinquents? Since these kids can't be trusted to act like civil human beings....Union City would benefit from a strict curfew for kids under 21.

But 18, 19, 20, & 21 year olds are adults. They aren't children. There is a curfew under 18, or at least there used to be. I believe it is/was 11pm. But from a car window you can't tell someone's age. Wouldn't it be a pain in the ass if the police could pull over any and everybody to ask to verify their age? I'm sure it would be for them. And it would be for me, in my late 20s, if I got pulled over during a quick midnight run to the store.

And even in that you contradict yourself! In your first sentence you say parents should do a better job, which I agree with. But at the end you want the police to raise children and 'raise' young adults as well. You can't have it both ways.

The issues being discussed here did not spring into being overnight. At least two generations (of all races) have grown up without anyone making them responsible for their actions. Given everything their parents could possibly provide for them, they feel entitled to whatever they want. They have reached adulthood with no respect for themselves, let alone other people. This isn't true of all, of course, and the state of the economy just exacerbates the problem. I just wish all the energy invested in talking about the situation could be channeled into finding a solution.

Now that was the sanest and most intelligent post on here so far. Thank you.

I didn't intend to contradict myself. It's just so frustrated that these "kids" roam the streets and destroy things. There really is very little the police can do. It' is the parents responsibility. So, if the kid is caught and is out past curfew then the parent as well as the kid need to be held responsible.

Shocking quantities of illegal drugs, both prescription and other, are pulsing through Union City. Countywide, as much as 1/2 BILLION dollars were recently discovered ...By ACCIDENT !!

Don't brag about law enforcement in this region with a straight face. The catch less than 1% of criminal activity.

Less see how the New Chief of UC police works out in these areas. He's been waiting 30 years for his turn.

Yesterday The Obion County Commission cut the interest rate on Union City's debt to less than 1%. Fantastic savings and an unbelievable gift from cash rich commissioners. But has Union City paid back any of the multi million dollar loan principle ? Will city taxpayers have to buck up and pay more taxes to bail out the councils wild spending era? Paying interest only on a credit card only leads to trouble down the road. But I'll bet ole Dunny will come up with a new plan:)

I did not 'brag' about law enforcement. I simply stated my opinion that the bad behavior under discussion did not come about overnight.
