Talk about the democrat party not having good candidates to run for local office. Take a look at this law abiding up standing citizen. Hell I wonder what the other candidates back round looked like.... :lol:

I'm not sure where this is at in Tenn., but I think it's in the good southern country town of Chattanooga. You just can't make this stuff up.

City Council Winner Took Part In Violent Armed Robberies; Declared That She Is A Racist

A City Council winner in the Tuesday runoff election was involved in violent armed robberies in 2001 and 2002 and more recently declared herself to be "a racist."

Election officials said Demetrus "Meechie" Coonrod was cleared to run for city office after earlier going to court and getting her voting rights restored and then this year getting her citizenship rights restored by Circuit Court Judge J.B. Bennett.

Sherri Sivley at the election office said, "She was cleared to run with us. Whether there is something in the city charter than prevents felons from serving in office is another matter."

City spokesperson Marissa Bell, asked if the city charter forbids a person with a felony record to hold public office, sent a link to the whole city charter to Chattanoogan.com.

Ms. Coonrod spoke about her past during the campaign. She said she had served her time and was moving forward.

Ms. Coonrod, who ousted incumbent Yusuf Hakeem in District 9, was charged by federal authorities in a string of robberies at restaurants and other businesses.

Prior to that Ms. Coonrod, who just served a term as vice chairman of the Hamilton County Democratic Party, had a string of state charges, including a child abuse and neglect case that arose out of Juvenile Court. Other charges on her record include assault and disorderly conduct in 1997, and disorderly conduct and two cases of assault as well as theft and improper use of 911 in 1999. She was arrested on a charge of passing worthless checks in 2001.

She was arrested along with Jason Davis, Jonathan Travis, Kevin Wooten, Justin Hill, Ruthie Easter and Elizabeth Agnew in the armed robbery cases. Davis, described as the leader of the armed robber ring, got a 45-year prison sentence. Judge Curtis Collier characterized him as a "wolf among a pack of wolves."

Ms. Coonrod pleaded guilty to involvement in holdups at Popeye's and a plasma center as well as conspiracy to commit the armed robberies. She got a sentence of 84 months.

She was sent to a prison at Tallahassee, Fla., where her attorney said several corrections officers "came under investigation for introducing various types of contraband into the prison in exchange for both money and sexual favors. The male officers victimized multiple female inmates by using their position of power to intimidate and influence them. Ms. Coonrod, victimized herself, gave valuable information to investigating officials that was used to develop the case against the officers. She agreed to be interviewed and eventually testified at trial against two officers who did not plead guilty, resulting in a successful outcome for the government. The result of these efforts was the reduction in her sentence by 21 months."

Ms. Coonrod arrived at the Salvation Army halfway house in Chattanooga on June 8, 2010, as a result of the shortened sentence. While at the facility, she obtained a number of violations.

People sleep peacefully at night because there are a few tough men prepared to do violence on their behalf.

Hell as soon as I seen this article I knew she was a democrat the part that threw me back was it happened in Chattanooga, Tenn. I thought maybe in Virginia .

Me and my wife was heading up there next weekend to look at some property 30 minutes north of Chattanooga. Well we will be canceling that trip.

Hell Virginia just gave the felons voting rights Tenn. gave them a Full time job to run the damn county.

A little further northeast in TN and across the line into WNC gets into conservative country. Excluding Buncombe County - Asheville.
