I am from Georgia and think theyíre both redneck Barney Fife idiots. Is it even rational to think just because you step out with a gun that someone who doesnít have a clue of your intentions is going to comply? Especially if the other party sees a possible weakness they can exploit? They are guilty for the simple fact of being stupid. And if the local Sheriff Dept gave the order, then they are held liable too. Common sense sometimes has to be enforced.
Itís against the law in Georgia for me to even shoot someone fleeing my house after I watch them commit a crime. Much less to drive around and hold people at gunpoint. And I donít give a rip what color any of them are.

I've heard it all my life. I no sooner have to introduce myself and my accent gives it away and hear come the jokes.
In my time I've been called a klansman, bubba, good old boy, cracker, redneck, hillbilly TO MY FACE.

Then some news item like this comes along and the rest of the country dog piles on them dumb hicks down south.

I for one am sick of it.

Man we were taught sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me. Really rang true in boot camp. Only real saving grace their was I had a Cajun and an ole boy from the hills of Kentucky. Them folks at Great Lakes thought the South had rose again.

I donít care where this occurred, even if yankees had been this stupid Iíd call them out on it too.
I donít see how anyone can say this is justified. And I really donít see how the police let it go unless they are to blame too. I have several LEOís buddies and they even say them boys are screwed.

I'm sorry to hear folks take those liberties with you. It explains your sensitivity.

Redneck does not have a southern connotation, at least not to me. You can be a redneck in any part of the Country. Same goes for Barney Fife, If someone is a bumbling, inept cop or pretending to be one, It doesn't make a bit of difference to me where the idiot is from.

Neither one of those terms are racist or regional.


Eh...wot?

Nightlife--every shoplifter has to leave the premises,before they could be arrested for shoplifting. They were all arrested on the same day.
I was a lot faster afoot in those days.

Warrior your argument holds no water on the regional slur.... Lugnut lives WAY closer to where the term redneck was coined than you. I've been called those names to my face as well and I live in the mountains of northern PA. Add in flatlander, yinzer, fayettenemian all because of where I grew up.

They weren't arrested at first because of the "good ole boys" club. It was only after the New York Times ran an article and the release of the video that the GBI stepped in an arrested them.

Southerners have been stereotyped on Tv and movies as sort of simpletons since way back in the 40's 50's and 60's.
Gomer,Goober,Jethro,sherrifs/cops,etc on shows and movies like Andy Griffith,beverly hillbillies,dukes of hazzard,smokey and the bandit deliverance etc.
I guess It sort of stuck.

I think 2 is okay, but 1 has some issues, and you could be committing a crime by attempting it, depending on the city and state.

I agree, I posted on account of #2 .

No your not, just people talking out of school. Northerners embraced it cause it was cool. You may resemble one, but rednecks imo are southern, doesn't start with the Miners either, goes back farther.


I wonder if tap dancers walk into a room, look at the floor, and think, I'd tap that. I wonder about things.....

I would say innocent till all the facts are in. I sure would hate to vote like hobbie ask until I know everything.

So, in your opinion a person can't be a redneck unless that person is a southerner? In my opinion, that is bullcrap.

I always thought redneck was just a country term. I surly ainít calling someone who lives in Atlanta or Macon or any other city a redneck. They havenít earned nor deserve that title.

That's your right Lug, and I appreciate it. Don't make it right though, Warrior had it right. Redneck got popular in WV because it made the bigtime papers for the Minors faught the Co men. Redneck imo is Southern rural white folk. If your in Appalachia you might could hold on to Hillbilly lol.
