Authenticity check: A search reveals that the phrase "regarded by many" appears in the text. Is the phrase a symptom of a dubious statement? Could a source be quoted instead? Perhaps the "many" could be identified? Might text be edited to more genuinely reflect specific facts?

Possible reversion of submission of second "Atlanta" paragraph[edit]

Firstly, the stated news article which heads the second paragraph as its source of information is already among the (properly) cited sources included in the original paragraph.

Second, the way the article used for the information in the added paragraph is cited is, according to Wikipedia's guidelines regarding citations, at best questionable in at least a couple of ways, namely

  • Making a link to a "create a page" for a single news article is not the proper way to cite a source
  • simply naming the title and date of the article along with the contents of the submission is not the preferred way to cite a source that could just as soon be linked to, and
  • much of the added paragraph simply reprints the stated article's contents, repeating word-for-word segments of the article, which I suspect violates Wikipedia's guidelines and is borderline plagiaristic unless perhaps explicitly quoting specific statements made by people in the article.

However, the aforementioned are all ultimately moot points anyway because aspects of the first paragraph render the information comprising the second paragraph superfluous--namely that

  • Fernandez-Armesto did not recognize Leonpacher as an officer of the law
  • Leonpacher refused to procure his requested credentials proving that he was in fact an officer of the law and therefore in a position to give orders, and
  • it was furthermore indicated that their account of the events which took place potentially conflict with each other and that at the very least, a "misunderstanding" occurred and ergo
  • Leonpacher's account does not necessarily amount to what is actually a different "version of the events" which occurred.

I'm subsequently inclined to believe that the edits made to the article should be reverted on the basis that the additional paragraph is not only poorly submitted but also redundant in terms of its information. (This might not be so if officer Leonpacher had his own page on which the submitted information appeared, although I would tend to doubt he warrants having a page about him based on Wikipedia protocol.)Adrigon 05:20, 15 January 2007 (UTC)

I think I'm in agreement with your thoughts on this one C2r 07:36, 15 January 2007 (UTC)

AHA Controversy?[edit]

The article says:

Fernández-Armesto became a center of 2007 AHA (American Historical Association) controversy when he was arrested for the crime of jaywalking in Atlanta.

How exactly did this incident make Fernández-Armesto the center of an AHA controversy? -Grammaticus Repairo 02:21, 11 January 2007 (UTC)

Stop and Identify statutes[edit]

Um, I thought the only time one is compelled to produce identification is when operating a motor vehicle? At least according to Stop and Identify statutes. Btyner 02:57, 11 January 2007 (UTC)
