    Both of them were arrested last year 1 for possession of marijuana and 1 for contempt. Does not seem like they learned much by being let go Sherrell. Looks like you need help in grammar class yourself. Maybe they will learn something in jail...Where they need to be. You must be a family member.

    The time has come for us to protect ourselves & those we care about.A rep for being crazy in possession of bad dogs & weapons seems to be the only thing that slows these kind of folks down.And you better be willing to use both.One mistake I understand but a life long thing is just a career & they need to be locked up somewhere hot/cold, uncomfortable, and where they have to work 10-12 hours a day to pay for their own upkeep.They cost me no matter what, as it is today, either they steal from me or my tax dollars go to pay for their room & board.The public gets sc--- either way.By the way, this is not cruel and unusally punishment. This is the way that most of us, who have even a little, started out(just not locked up).

    Fox is another of a long list of career criminals we have living here in Meridian. Criminals like Fox look at jail much like productive citizens look at work. They know the courts will give them little to no time for their crime, so their job is to report to jail and work off their time at taxpayers expense. Its time that many of the career criminals start paying for their repeat visits to the county jail.

    Arm Up! The castle Doctrine is quick and easy. Don't believe it? Word gets out real quick when you bust a cap of onload a shotgun on someone. 10 years now and we don't get anymoe "accidental" drives up at the house looking the place over very carefully. Law enforcement can't do it all. They are stretched thin enough as it is. Get to know your neighbors. Watch out for them, and ask them to do the same for you. Take back your streets! Take back you neighborhood!.. Take back your life!

    Numerous people have tried to help those two (I am one of them, I used to teach them both) however they have been traveling down the wrong path for a while now. I didn't want to see them get to this point but if you do the crime then you must do the time. In my opinion, jail is the only help they need at this point, there is no turning back!

    Why would we let them go and get help? They robbed an innocent person and we should just let them go?!?!?! What if that innocent person was you, your son/daughter, mom/dad?????? Would you want them to be let go then???? People work too hard to have some THUG come into their home and take all of their stuff and I think it is a crying shame that someone would want to let them go!!!!! Do you know how many people in jail have been released and then REPEATED the same thing???? Maybe we should just free them all and say someone is going to help them....Wonder what would happen then?! Perhaps someone would come rob YOU! Bet you wouldn't think we should let them go then.
