YourTurn - 8/6/07

Watch for YourTurn normally scheduled to air at the end of Heartland News at Noon on Mondays and Fridays, at the end of Heartland News at 10:00 on Saturday nights, and following The Breakfast Show on Sunday mornings.

Don Robinson from Malden:
"I watched the news on racial profiling...go to Southern Illinois, get on I-57 and head for Chicago...a 100 mile drive will tell you blacks get stopped more often than whites."
Brian Lewis of Cape Girardeau:
"Most of the American working public has to pass a drug test often in order to receive their paycheck and/or keep their job...if people on public assistance would have to pass a drug test in order to receive checks (and) food stamps some of the problems could be solved...or possibly the government could pass on the money not given out towards the cost of the war or health care..."
Rusty Robinson from Mound City:
"I would like to see the (Cape Girardeau) police department place radar on Kingshighway...people do not respect the speed limit or their fellow drivers. Kingshighway seems to be the worst."
Ella Johnson from Dexter, Missouri:
"Our city and county taxes are crazy.  We pay higher taxes for city and county workers to run around in their work trucks after hours doing family business while we as taxpayers pay for it.  They should have to use their own cars and buy gas from their own hard earned dollars."
