Would someone from

Would someone from administration please email me specifically what I said in my post that may have allegedly violated something from our comments policy? I would appreciate it if you would email me a copy of my comment, too. I just wrote down in my post the description of the man they are trying to find that was posted on public television as they described him and asked for a more accurate one. What is wrong with that? Doesn't the chronicle sincerely want to find the person who did this? I have never had a comment removed before, so I would like to know exactly what I did wrong so I won't repeat it. Or is it a matter of did I give out more information than law enforcement wants us to know yet? Then they might want check nbcaugusta.com which was the source of my information and squash it there, too. nbcaugusta says they got THEIR info from wgac. Thanks.

The reason I am asking this

The reason I am asking this is that someone on here has been libeling my name up and down, left and right, and I objected and his posts remain. Why is that? I don't call other people names, why do you allow a poster to continuously call me a liar, bigot, racist and worse and yet my post above is yanked when I was repeating publicized fact and trying to help law enforcement?

I see that the article has been updated. Why is this media saying one suspect and another media a different one? Is that the reason my post was pulled? I did my post in good faith basing it on publicized information. Could you not have simply made a post stating that they are now hunting a different suspect instead of pulling my post? Anyway, I'd like an explanation so I know who to watch out for since far too many of the people the law is chasing end up in my neck of the woods.

I think the first guy and car

I think the first guy and car nbcaugusta.com reported and described that they were looking for must have been the wrong guy, cause this guy has a totally different name. Now I would like to know if we are not supposed to be looking for the car nbc described, too, as well as the first guy. I'm not sure exactly what got it pulled, just would like to know so I don't do it again. I do try to be appropriate.

I guess I'll go check the 6pm news on TV. And check my email later to see if they can tell me what got my post pulled. I don't want to cause difficulties for anyone by making the same mistake again, if I did make a mistake. Especially for me!

lets see...typical mug shot, but he is wanted, so that leads me to believe he has been in the system beofre..what did he do and why is he on the streets. augusta needs to get out of the public housing business and take the resources used to police the projects for crime in other areas of the city...

Noone has sent me an

Noone has sent me an explanation. Just because someone reports it as offensive doesn't mean it is. I think it had to do with law enforcement changed which person they were after. I checked nbc and they had changed to the Williams guy, too, by that time. In that case they should have yanked the whole story and started over instead of pulling my post, because I didn't do anything wrong unless there is something I totally overlooked. That's why I want to know why they pulled my post.

dale88, they probably had a good reason (I hope), I just want to know what it is, so if they could so kindly email me, I would appreciate it. If they are not going to be responsive to a paying customer; I just might have to stop buying the newspaper. I really could use that money for gas in my car, anyway. I've been tempted to quit buying the paper before, but it's hard to break a 20 plus year old tradition of buying the Augusta Chronicle and I read my parents' Augusta Herald and Augusta Chronicle in the dark ages before that.

Good grief, now there's a third person, Terrance Morgan, he looks like he's younger than 19 years old in the picture, maybe it's an old picture. (There wasn't a picture of the first person reported by nbcaugusta, who is apparently no longer being sought for questioning).

This is sad, but lately I'm feeling that sometimes we don't need to investigate or even make arrests in these crimes. So much money is wasted on idiots killing idiots. Like the old saying, "Kill em all, let God sort them out."

baroness, honey....you need to walk away from the computer! Just let it go. Of the 18 comments that were on when I clicked on here, 11 of them were yours! I know you're concerned about why your post was pulled and the differences with the nbc report and the paper....but it's time to let it go. Believe me, I am NOT trying to come off like a sarcastic jerk here, and I'm not making fun of you! I just think it's bothered you much more than it's bothered any of us. None of us think any less of you. Just focus on the more important fact that a young man died today, and apparently they've captured the killer.....hopefully.

There has got to be some way

There has got to be some way to stop all these crimes committed by young children! I don't understand why the police cannot stop what is happening almost on a daily basis in Augusta. Do they need outside reinforcement? I understand that they are limited in manpower and by certain regulations but this is getting to be absurd.

Baroness? Did you get this

Baroness? Did you get this straightened out? I'm sorry, when I stopped by, I now, wish I had read some of the posts here but it was dinnertime and I was busy and figured I'd get back here to read these sometime later...I'm here now and see you're having quite a time of it about AC removing your post. I'm just wondering whether they did finally contact you about this is all. They never did me after removing my 1st post where all I did was C&P'd someone else's post. Had no idea you couldn't do that. Good luck with this. I'll check back sometime tomorrow and see if you've been by. Good night.

baroness -- after reading

baroness -- after reading your comments here -- it appears there was some confusion as to who did the actual killing. Reading the article it appears as if Terrance Douglas Morgan was the only suspect. I think the newspaper should have revised the article and explained there was some confusion and miss information reported to the media. Removing comments and not explaining what happened makes it appears as a cover-up even if there is not one.

Thanks for asking, namasta.

Thanks for asking, namasta. I have no idea what the problem was. There was no foul language, there was no unpublicized information. nbcaugusta did pull the story that I got my info from and replaced it with the next guy, Williams, but I don't know why that info would get my post pulled, since it wasn't inappropriate. It became incorrect, but that wasn't my bad. Is that the only recourse they had in that case, to delete my post? What does C&P'd mean in your post? copied? I didn't copy anything word for word, I paraphrased, so I don't think that's it. I checked my email. No answer. I know it really doesn't matter to anyone else, but I don't want to inadvertently set off the deleting when I don't know why. Sorry it's slowing down reading the other posts justmyopinion, and all, but I just would like to know.

BTurner, possibly, though not

BTurner, possibly, though not a coverup, that's the way it looks to me, too, that they kept updating the article, both on here and I got some info from the TV website that was outdated by the time I read it apparently, just my bad luck to get in the middle of the mix-up. (What's new? LOL) I hope A/C won't hold that against me. I thought when people got deleted they had written something inappropriate, like call people who aren't, racists, liars, and lowlife bigots, for example. Since people haven't been getting deleted for slander like that, I couldn't imagine why my post was getting deleted.
