Michael Wayne Bader, 58, was charged with second degree criminal damage to property and obstruction of an officer, according to Richmond County jail records.

A sheriff’s report said the deputies followed a blood trail from a broken hallway window to Mr. Bader’s room.

Inside, they found Mr. Bader with blood on his hands and shirt. He had broken the microwave, lamp, dresser and air conditioner in the room, the report said. The suspect fought with deputies who tried to restrain him.

The damage to the room and window was estimated at about $650.

There certainly isn't much

There certainly isn't much attention given when you have your house broken into. Police act as if you've bothered them to have to come and investigate.

Police brutality happens to others besides minorities, it's just not newsworthy unless it is a minority.

It seems no one knows how to

It seems no one knows how to spell these days. This is the second posting this morning where God has been spelled in all lower case letters. If one is referring to the eternal God, then the first letter should be capitalized as in other names. Dictionaries are wonderful things to keep at one's side when posting for all the world to read. But, as my grandfather once told me," it is better to remain quiet on a subject one has limited knowledge of, than to open your mouth and make a fool of yourself." I would suppose the same goes for writing.

I'm with you Dixieman. I

I'm with you Dixieman. I would thought if it was worth a story then it should have been worth disclosing the location. With all the spelling errors and lack of good reporting, I think the editors have just given up on this sinking ship. How about spell check, do you think their computers have it disabled?

Sadly,@whipping post..I agree with you. Starts with the first post and trickles downward. Just can't be about the stupid choices people make. Maybe one day we can read an article that won't mention race or the President..Dont hold your breath!!
