Hell yea HE DID!! Just think franklin county was corrupt 90 years ago and 90 years later they are still corrupt. 90 years ago they protected gangsters letting them make and sell moonshine thru out the county. 90 years later they protect and use informants to manufacture and sell meth thru out the county.

Well the Hangin of a thug is always worth celebration. Even if it's just in Remembrance of a time when justice was swift and proper.
It's the only way I'd want a thug hanging around. If I had my way about it the rope industry would be booming. Hemps finest use.

Buzz - back in the day you would have been for the justice so missing today. Not to worry about the rope industry. It would not require that many ropes. Keep them in secure cabinets, oiled down periodically, and behind locked doors. Get them out as needed. Swift and proper justice would have the murderers and crooks thinking twice.

Three to five days at a time. Charlie would have fit in well. The guy never slept. Now he is.
