  3. Scoot Show 110pm Bill Cosby

    Audio

    Tue, 24 May 2016

    On today’s show: Bill Cosby has been ordered to stand trial in Pennsylvania on felony sex-assault charges stemming from a 2004 encounter. Do you think Bill Cosby is being treated fairly? AND: Latest on the Presidential election as a new poll show the race between Hillary and Trump tied! And Bernie Sanders just won’t go away…PLUS: IS GRIEF ENOUGH? A 5-year-old girl is dead after she shot herself with a gun left unattended while her father showered. The young girl’s father – described by neighbors as a very responsible gun owner – is also a veteran. St. John Parish police are investigating and will determine if charges should be filed against the father. One can only imagine the emotionally hell this father is going through – so is that sufficient punishment? Or – do you think the father should be charged for leaving his gun unattended?

  4. Scoot Show 310pm Amite High School Valedictorian Andrew Jones

    Audio

    Mon, 23 May 2016

    On today’s show: RACISM or the RULES? This afternoon – the Tangipahoa chapter of the NAACP is planning a protest in front of the offices of the parish school board offices. The protest calls for board members to step down after Amite High School valedictorian, Andrew Jones, was not allowed to walk across the stage and receive his diploma last week with his graduating class, because he refused to shave off all of this facial hair. Andrew is African-American. The NAACP says it discovered photographs of white students with beards walking across the stage in past graduation ceremonies. If white students were allowed to walk across the stage with facial hair and Andrew Jones was not allowed to – then you can understand why it seems that Andrew was singled out because he’s black. But, if the rules changed and if Andrew was warned 3 times, as the school says, then should he have been expected to follow the rules? Do you think Amite High not allowing their valedictorian to join his graduation ceremony was racially motivated or just following the rules?
