Following the slaying of four U.S. Marines and one Navy sailor at a Chattanooga reserve center last week, Hamilton County Public Defender Steve Smith criticized the federal government on social media, the Times Free Press reports. “I just can't agree that the best we can do is pray for Chattanooga.
