I had the privilege today to go with a friend to a Circuit Court. He who had been subpoened for a hearing to see if one of our finest robbers could get his bond reduced. During the whole series of events I heard several people testify, my friend, police officers, victims, and family members of those who wanted to see there loved ones freed.
While there I noticed something very disturbing to me. I have been involved with the justice system before with a previous job and noticed that the young lady seated beside the Honorable Judge Edwin Keaton was extremely rude and unprofessional. When it was time to swear someone in for testimony, she SAT in the chair, with this cocky little smirk, not even raising her hand to perform the duty. REALLY... what has the justice system come to. Everytime I have ever witnessed this prior to today the person responsible for performing this duty STANDS as does the person testifying, raises their right hand and acknowledges to tell the truth. What baffled me more was that the Judge allows this.
Watching this you could tell someone has in the past informed the young lady that she is special. To me it is more like SPECIAL ED. We wonder where our values have gone and wonder why the whole country is in the shape it is in. What I saw today is a prime example of one of the reasons. When the officers in charge of the courts do not even want to enforce the spirit and tradition of the system how can we expect folks outside the court room to do it. If anyone has ever noticed this in the same court room and thinks this is not right, please share your feelings.

I do believe that this behavior has not only been noticed by others, but that it has also been reported to the Circuit Clerk in writing. Have you ever tried to go into that specific office to get information or have anything done? HA! Its a joke! There are helpful people in that office, the just happen to be the new people, unfortunately. They will jump up to help you, only to be stonewalled when they have to obtain information from one of the "seasoned veterans". The "important person" attitude is one that cannot be overlooked. But let's not just concentrate on that office alone. I tried to do early voting last week and was put on hold by three clkers who were having breakfast when I walked in. I mean I love bananas and chocolate milk as much as the next guy, but really guys...eat that on your break, not during special voting times.

Wow! It just occured to me that I have observed the same behavior in court. It is great INjustice to the justice system. I have thought about your comments smallboy and feel the same way. The cute little broad should be made to stand and raise her hand the same way those testifying have to, why because it is the right thing to do. However knowing who the self-centered young lady is I don't see that happening. I can also see her pouting about if she forced to start doing it.

PRATT? ha, that whole family is nothing but a bunch of crackhead losers! Their daughters were having abortions after abortions before they even graduated!! And they walk around thinking they are better than everyone else...ha, they are the biggest joke in Camden. They are what folks commonly refer to as "WHITE TRASH"!!! Ughh, just the mention of that name makes me sick.

Crooked- You don't even know what you are talking about. Hannah and Spencer are some of THE nicest women you will EVER meet!! Jamie and Jeanette have done a fine job of raising their two girls. They are some of the most humble people that I have had the pleasure of knowing and absolutely go out of their way to help ANYONE in need. Furthermore, I feel it is necessary to advise you that the next time you feel like spewing venemous bullshit via your keyboard maybe you should know who/what you are talking about.
F.Y.I. Benton Rollins was the one that was brought up on drug charges. NOT Jamie Pratt. Please DO YOUR RESEARCH people. Seriously. As for abortions, what in the HELL are you talking about? You really don't even know what you're talking about. However, do you really feel that is ANY of your business when ANY woman makes a decision that is not only very personal, but legal. I get the fact that morally speaking, some people do not agree with abortion and if that is the case, do something about it. Call your legislators. Become a lobbyist. Start a petition. But please, or the sake of humanity stop slandering innocent victims; THAT IS illegal.

This is absolutely unbelievable!!!!!!! Number one you obviously do not know me or my family!!!! My father, Jamie Pratt is a respected attorney in this town and many others. I find it funny that the only negative thing anyone can say is that we are all on crack...Come on, really...crack?!?!?! I am a school teacher at Smackover Elementary and my sister is a stay at home mom. Not real sure I would have a job if I were a crackhead...You poor poor people, need to get a life and maybe even a job and find something better to do with your time...P.S. I find it funny that you all have "fake names"...Have a nice day.
Sincerely,
Pratt's crackhead daughter!!!!!

Well said Spencer! It is absolutely comical what people can come up with to spend their time on. Maybe they smoked a little "crack" before they sat down at their computer. Either way, I sincerely feel sorry for them that they have nothing better to do with their time than to orchestrate slanderous allegations against honest, well meaning people. I hope that you and your lovely family have a wonderful weekend!

Judge Keaton isn't helping my boys in our fins petition it is nothing but a never ending headache on the parents. They wanna know why the parent won't call the law on the child well BC either they don't do anything or they write the parent a ticket to pay y would they call the law?!!! Its bull**** and when trying to ask Keaton for advice he sends the parent to parenting classes that the parent has to pay for. Bull**** all the way around these kids need a good ass whoop in done rite and to hell w the other bus!!!!
