It is ludicrous to think the judge did any thing wrong..He did not let Mr. Light out of jail because his house was burglarized.. The judge is following what the law will allow .. Mr. Light does have the right to be under house arrest. But in my opinion he should NOT be allowed to go see his attorneys in Alb. or Alamogordo. That's bull what are phone and fax's for ??? As for his physicians that is also bull, unless he has some extreme medical condition that he can not get fixed here..Other wise he should consider him self lucky to be home..As for the drive in he can call a fix it man to do the job.. Or just close it for all I care, because we do not go there any more..Because of the injustices he caused minors and their parents.. And yes I know why should I care, when their own parents still go to the drive in.. Because I have morals, and what he did was wrong. Our youth is our future someone has to make a stand. Even if it is one person two or three, a statement must be made .. Our youth do matter..very much so...

This will make me think twice before I allow Richard Brown to put a campaign sign in my yard again.

Guess Judges like Van Dyk really are far and few between.

A stalker is held in jail, but this known drug trafficer is confined to his house? This is all so obvious that strings are being pulled. The whole thing is disgusting. The favors being shown here are worse than the crime itself. So hang on for the finale when he does no time for any of it.

Most all of you making posts here are totally uninformed. STFU until you have the facts. You know you are rumor mongers. I know it too.

Once again the small-town narrow-minded hatred and stupidity apparently so common in Carlsbad rears its ugly head. How many of you were in the courtroom when this hearing was held? How many of you have talked to Brad, the judge, the attorneys, or any of those actually involved? I would feel very safe in saying NONE, yet you still feel like spewing your rude opinions and trashing people - not just Brad, but the judge, too - most of you have probably never even met, much less gotten to know.

Before you jump on me, let me say that I do know Brad but I DO NOT condone what he is alleged to have done; I also support the legal system and one's right to a fair hearing. I also know it doesn't take "money" or "strings being pulled" for this to have been a legitimate decision on the judge's part.

As I think about it, a few of you should probably appreciate Brad because he gives you an opportunity to vent your venom. I can't help but wonder why it's so nasty, though? Have-nots lashing out at have's? Jealousy, perhaps?

While I won't be as crass about it as the guy in Hobbs who calls himself "Brad Light", I will agree with him and repeat his thoughts - SHUT UP until you have a reason, and more importantly, some knowledge (not opinions - facts) to base your poison on.

I always thought Carlsbad was a nice little town, but people like some of those posting on here make me think it a good town to be FROM!

You are so hateful. it seems so easy for you to sit on your over sized gluteus maxim-us judging other people. You don't have the fact so it ends up being the Stupid leading the Mindless. The funny thing is the front page news of the Carlsbad Current Anguish is about someone being put under house arrest. Please tell me your town isn't that Pathetic.

I know Brad. I also know Judge Brown.

I am waiting to see the outcome of the whole fiasco. Lots of things blown out of proportion. No, I do not condone what happened at the rave. Come back to reality, a rave in a big city would go down with little notice.

This shouldn't be front page news.

How many years did Greg Scott, Tommy Conn, James Bunch, et,al, peddle their poison to the kids around here? Turning a lot of Daddy's little girls into raving meth who-res. You know the ones you see now with the rotten teeth, doing that "meth dance" everywhere they go. They sold their crap without so much as a nod from the Jack and John regime while the "drug busts were nothing but petty users, cutting and selling some of their own stash to make beer and smoke money. If we are to have a public dam-ning on this forum, then let's da-mn them all!

Ok here is my take on it all. There has been alot of hype over BL, I mean pages and pages, I gave up reading it all. To much garbage in with it all.

I do not parove of what BL did. I think he was way off base, he went way to far. I am all for giving the cummunity a place to party, but I am not ok with giving the community a place to do their drugs safe and party.

I think the BL has gotten away with alot of crimes that we are not even talking about here and it has been going on for years, this is just the one that got him caught.

Money does talk and money can make a cese hard, why? Because he can afford the best of the best to represent him, he knows who to hire who can find the loop homes to make BL's life easier.

I think that our judges have been in the right so far and as others have said they are done what the law allows, as long as the law allows for BL to be home then so be it.

However my faith in BL screwing it up is pretty high. He has been playing like he is above the law for so long he doesn't think he can be touched or harmed by the law. I am just waiting fo rhim to screw up again and end up back in jail.
