Truly a wicked and evil person. Destroy his weapons. Jail time is earned.

"Wilson Eugene Putnam, 55, of Ridgeview Acres Drive, pointed a handgun at the head of Jerry Dean Davis Jr. without justification"

"without justification"? So this man just casually walks up to another man and makes all these threats just to have something to do? BULL. Let's hear the other side of the story.

I wouldn't say "blugeon" either, but $2000.00 that is totally stupid. That just gives him the oppertunity to return and really "blungeon" them. That man should not have had such a low bail. He threatened children. Lock him up, quick!!

LOL - I thought the same thing. Wouldn't it be more like "I'll beat the sh*t out of you"?

He didn't learn firearm safety very well. Did he not understand to never point your weapon at someone unless you plan on using it.

I was charged with assault by pointing a gun. Charge was dismissed. Some duffy female claims I pointed it at her. That one cost me 300 George Washingtons for a lawyer. I would of been railroaded if I had a public pretender, oh, I mean defender. They ain't worth a chit.

Keith former Gun-bunny, I take it was a domestic dispute? Lot Lizards are only at the Candler truck stop.
