now you are accusing the state police of being involved in all this garbage.how many people in le are you going to get involved before you are finished?sounds to me like they or you are throwing out the life jackets.another ploy to throw the defense off base and try to get them to consentrate on more acussers somewhere else.

can't never tell the tide may turn the other way.
hope it does,and if I can help it turn I will devote my time in the effort.

First and foremost, I can guarantee that your sources are not that good or you would know straight up that there are more women that has been victimized by our sheriff. Also, you would know something that I know that backs that statement up..remember I don't always state everything that I know but wait till it comes out on its own, mainly because I love surprising Hawkins supporters. So you go ahead and keep believing that you know so much!

Also, I have never talked to the investigator Streets in my life, not once, so he is not a source of mine! As for who you may be referring too, well I won't mention names but if it is who I think it is, he does not give out information on the progress of the case, so you can keep dreaming illusions of grandeur all that you desire, it is your own little mind anyways!

As for whether Hawkins has any connections in Harrison County or influence, I will keep my thoughts & knowledge to myself for the moment. Remember, he is the one that brought Streets name into the case in Barbour County by defaming him on his own FB, great public official that takes to the internet to slam a private citizen.Not very bright since as the Sheriff, if he was informed that Streets broke the law, why did he simply not charge him as it would be against the law to bribe a witness? The fact is that he couldn't charge him because it didn't happen; simple heresay! Also if he thought it was a crime, any charges after the fact since the suit was filed would be retaliation, something we all know Hawkins is quite good at. Don't you think that if Hawkins knew who I was that he would find a way to retaliate? I am already aware there was an investigation into my identity and I know the outcome was basically nothing they could do as I have never broken a law!!! Yeah, my sources must be crap!!! lol

So you go right ahead and keep supporting Hawkins, though I am surprised, because if you are who I think you are; serving the country in the military should have taught you the basic fundamental rights that we as Americans share...and Freedom of Speech is one of them!!! That also includes anonymous free speech as defined by SCOTUS!!! You might wish to look that case up, it is not that hard to do!!!!

You may call me whatever you desire, at least I know the truth and am doing what I can to make people aware of the issues at hand. What are you doing? Standing up for a man that has multiple women claiming he has sexually assaulted them. A man that has abused his power in multiple incidents and a man that cannot admit that he has made mistakes. From where I am sitting, when someone can stand up for someone like that, they are no better themselves.
So again, you may say whatever you like but in the end, the truth will be revealed for all to see! What will you say then? Nothing because you will be to embarrassed by your mistake and based on your posts, you too will never admit that you were wrong! Takes a bigger man to admit they were wrong than trudge on in denial!!!!
