6/6/2013 on "Parents Petition to Have Principal Fired" article: Reporter Tracey forgot to mention that- Fire Department Chief Chis James, has been involved in numerous cases of corruption & misconduct, a *astard, who is a disgrace to the Augusta Fire Department!! He has wrongfully fired more good firefighters in the city that anyone I know!! He & Chief Willis, should be fired for unethical conduct & for having a reputation of dishonesty! James's statement about Rev. Beckles, was a lie; Rev. Beckles had not only worked for the Augusta Fire Department, he was employed for 2 years, and he was attacked by corrupt firefighters like Chris James, for revealing corruption & misconduct by James and his friends- mistreating firefighters & practicing job discrimination!1 which The Augusta Chronicle, failed to report the whole story back in 2010, and the racist *astard reporters held a grudge against Rev. Beckles ever since!! Don't worry the truth will still come out!! The City of Augusta is corrupt & racist, and not a good place to live!!

    The articles on Parents confronting Superintendent Roberson & the B.O.E., and Principal Kim Davis response to allegations of her misconduct (which was all proven factual in previous news reports & eye witness statements)- Kim Davis's public statement was a complete fabrication and a deliberate "Damage Control" effort, to falsely attack the character of a respected Church Leader, and social activist who was only protecting his son & defending other children who all have been mistreated or abused by disgraceful School Principal Kimberly Davis!! At first, the Local Media substantiated all of Rev. Beckles & other concerned Parents' claims of injustice by The Copeland Elementary School Principal, but on 6/5/2013, after these Parents led by Rev. Dr. Beckles marched to the B.O.E., and met with Mr. Roberson and the corrupt administrators, some of the facts, videos, statements & content was altered to make Rev. Beckles & the concern parents an appear dishonest or taking advantage of immoral school officials?!?
    WJBF, WFXG, and The Augusta Chronicle- all omitted facts, footage, threats by Roberson, and recorded statements proving that Dr. Beckles & the other parents was telling the truth and presented evidence during their meeting with Roberson & the B.O.E., at NO time did the News accurately report the Historic Civil Rights March or Parents confronting a disreputable Superintendent! And refused to report or print that Rev. Beckles & the parents DID have & presented documented proof, along with a petition of over 300 signatures to back up their claims! Instead, false or misleading reports about another petition (which was never produced) was presented to keep Kim Davis from being removed, and photos of Davis's Supporters, was reported that they were parents, when most of the people were in fact; Copeland Elementary Employees, and their Leader PTA President Woolfolk was a fraud (no one as ever heard about him and he is under investigation for embezzling PTA funds)!!
    Fact is, The Augusta Chronicle (among others) distorted statements said by Parent Committee Spokesperson & Leader: Dr. Beckles and the group of concerned parents who are witnesses to the injustice, abuse of power, and corruption performed by Principal Kim Davis, Superintendent Frank Roberson, Tim Spivey, Missoura Ash, and members of the B.O.E.!!
    Augusta Chronicle reporter (calling on her private cellphone), Tracey McMannus twisted statements said by Rev. Beckles about the rally on 6/5/2013, in a recorded conversation he had with McMannus through speakerphone in front of witnesses, who clearly remember Dr. Beckles, refusing to discuss anything about his employment history, and wanted to keep the focus on the issue of kids being bullied in school, and The Richmond County School System, failing to do anything about it! McMannus stated that she "would only print news about the meeting parents had with the B.O.E.", and deliberately lied to Rev. Beckles & The Parents who were listening, and printed a fabrication about what was said in her article on 6/6/2013- in The Augusta Chronicle!!
    The Augusta Chronicle is notorious for changing words said by people & printing misleading or false statements, that's why they are a disreputable & racist newspaper business! Tracey McMannus deliberately changed the focus from protecting children from being mistreated by Davis, to verbally attacking & lying about a respected Church Leader and the concerned parents who all came to him for help, to represent them, and for doing what is right in protecting kids from a crazy out-of-control Principals like Kimberly W. Davis, Joretta Akpo-Sanni, and corrupt school administrators (Tim Spivey, Frank Roberson, and Missoura Ash) of the Augusta B.O.E.!
    And The Augusta Chronicle continues to print more lies: in their 6/8/2013 issue They printed that they were voted as being the best newspaper in America!!! By an organization that doesn't even exist!
    Tracey McMannus also lied in her 6/6/2013 issue, stating that she contacted the Human Resource Dept. of New Orleans Police Dept., when they told me, she never called them, to check Dr. Beckles employment history with them. And in New Orleans; Security Officer & Police Officer- ARE CONSIDERED THE SAME JOB!! And no matter what law enforcement agency you are with- YOU WORK WITH THE NEW ORLEANS POLICE DEPARTMENT!!
    Plus she never produced the name of the New Orleans person that she allegedly contacted!!
    The Augusta Chronicle (as witnessed by several parents) did not state all the facts pertaining to the 6/5/2013 B.O.E. Meeting, and Tracey McMannus and her friend Susan McCord (another lousy & racist reporter), committed to helping the corrupt Principal, PTA President, & B.O.E., cover up their incompetence and conceal the truth! Woolfolk "The phony", and his "so-called" group of parents advocating for Davis, were mostly Teachers and School Personnel- NOT PARENTS OF CHILDREN THAT GO TO COPELAND! The Chronicle & Media erroneously stated that Davis's Supporters also had a Petition of Signatures to keep Davis as Principal, was never presented or produced!! (because there was no petition, yet they are calling parents & Rev. Beckles LIARS??)
    This whole "Damage Control" agenda was recently cooked up by an incompetent Local Media- who are more afraid of the B.O.E., than reporting their corruption, AND a lousy Augusta School Board! Misconduct by Kim Davis, has forced Frank Roberson to keep the lid on revealing more injustice & corruption by the B.O.E. Administrators, whom are also afraid of the community finding out -how really scandalous THEY ARE, and always have been for years!! Consistenly, employing unqualified, uncertified, and incompetent principals & teachers (mostly females who hate good men)!!
    The Local Media are idiots, instead of accurately reporting the news on 6/5/2013, they with the blessing of the B.O.E., chose to railroad an Honorable man & Church Pastor along with followers and church members, who are all good parents with legitimate concerns, and evidence to prove all of the misconduct allegations against The Richmond County School Board & especially Dishonest School Principal Kimberly Davis!! Rumors are the Media and Board Members was bribed by Davis, Copeland Teachers & Roberson to keep their mouths closed!! All to conceal corruption, and protect a psychotic school principal who did, and has been mistreating & wrongfully suspending children for years!!
    In Davis's televised response to her accusers; she & the Copeland staff are so stupid, they couldn't even get Dr. Beckles's name right, they kept calling him Mr. Green, and witnesses heard him, repeatedly tell the school staff & Davis, that his name was "Rev. Dr. Beckles", and he had always signed his name that way!! Tyrone McCord, lied when he stated that Dr. Beckles told him the opposite!!
    If this incompetent principal & lousy B.O.E., cant' even get his name right, How are we to still believe their lies, about being able to effectively run an elementary school with no misconduct?!?
    When a Teacher at Copeland (Ms. Wynn) was recently arrested for locking a child in the Closet!!
    Because She allowed it to happen, and she never fired the Teacher!!
    Roberson & Davis are Liars! THERE IS A PROBLEM IN RICHMOND COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS, especially when it's educators keep lying to the community who pay their salaries! The local media didn't even follow the group of parents out of the B.O.E., bldg., because they all were busy conspiring to conceal all the facts or events, and print lies in The Augusta Chronicle, to cover up the injustice toward children, by making Roberson & the B.O.E., look good! The Media deliberately omitted slander & verbal attacks Roberson & B.O.E Staff made against Rev. Beckles and the parents- THAT'S WHY THEY LEFT!!
    McMannus printed that she (6/6/2013) asked scandalous Fire Chief Chris James, about Rev. Beckles's career as a Firefighter, and James lied, stating that Rev. Beckles hadn't worked there in several years. When in fact he had been employed at Augusta Fire Department for two years, and only stopped working, because his was injured on Duty, and was receiving paychecks then- Worker's Comp. Benefits, until 2011!! And it was ruled that it was Chris James's fault for being injured! He was the Training Supervisor for The Fire Department, and he allowed & encouraged firefighters to physically attack, mistreat each other causing injuries, and he would deny medical treatment to new firefighters (as witnessed by many firefighters including Rev. Beckles & Sloan Griffin) and they reported their concerns to The Augusta Chronicle in (2010). Which caused Chris James & Chief Willis to be investigated, and in 2012, Chief Willis was fired for misconduct!! Chris James (a character witness?? Don't make me laugh!!) His Augusta Fire Department as also (like the Augusta Police Dept., & School Board) have been documented & investigated for crimes, corruption, racism and scandalous misconduct behavior FOR YEARS!! Want more proof, just check out The Ronnie Few Scandal in the 1990's, and the cases against Sheriff Ronnie Stength- employing & protecting corrupt deputies like Jack Rackliff, and maintaining detention centers that support false arrests and denying minority inmates medical treatment or phone calls!! Don't get me started on police corruption in AIKEN COUNTY!!

    No Wonder good citizens & true heroes like Rev. Beckles are constantly lied on & unfairly targeted!!
