Bottom line? The paper need to report what has been reported to the police and the complaints filed so the community knows, without interjecting their opinions or views. They don't need to decide guilt nor innocence, and shouldn't, ethically.

Speaking of which, I have seen no reporting of most of what has been discussed here, despite the obvious public interest and comments here. So the question here is in who's interest is the "Benton Review" acting in, serving, and reporting for?
wow

Oh, Yeah! No editing or deletions if you want to be respected and regarded as a legit news source instead of being perceived as small minded, and promoting propaganda and bias.(Un-American)

The Benton Review appears to me to be acting in the interest of county officials and law enforcement instead of the community and their current and potential subscribers. This attempted murder here (and it can't be anything but that to me, as 911 wasn't called when the victim was unconscious and beaten, but instead, his body was driven and dumped to cover the crime up)wasn't reported for weeks, until the mother herself called the paper to account. Why? They have access to the Police reports. That's not even right to me and mine. I my neighbor is assaulted and some other neighbor may be responsible? I want to know, and I want to know that the criminals are pursued and stopped so I feel safe here.

What's more pathetic is that, yes, they do have access to that information, but refused to report it,while my son,(the victim) and I(the person calling in to report the crime and file a complaint) do not. My son has no case number, no copy of the report, and we were told by Deputy Prosecutor , John Wright, that we couldn't have that, as they didn't do that, when I in a face to face meeting brought that up.

Nor was Johnny ever given or informed by the investigating officer, or the prosecutor of his victim rights.

Thus, I will speak here. That is so very wrong.

I say we need to find someone to run against the sheriff real quick and clean house in this county. It's an embarrassment to the citizens of this county that a simple case like this has been pushed under the rug. Basically they are telling everyone that if you want to committ a crime come do it in Benton County because if you know the right people or have the right name you are going to get away with it. There have been several murders in this county that have never been solved because of the lack of knowledge by the law here. If you can't handle something or don't have the knowledge to solve something then call someone who does!!! Plain and simple.

I hope the family is still pursuing other means of justice, as there are other avenues to take. This is wrong...

No court news in this weeks Benton Review but I heard Terry and Jarred Johnson along with another guy were arrested earlier this week. Haven't heard on what charges. Does anyone on here know? Does it have to do with this case?
