This is absolutely ridiculous! These loser junkies need to quit preying on the elderly! I hope karma comes back to haunt him majorly!

So this druggie is released right back into society to keep doing the same things over & over? Call me crazy, but something is not right with this whole picture. Tell me how he is released back into society to keep making the same mistakes over & over? What's it going to take to keep him & others like him in jail? Killing someone? Look at how many times he has done this after the older lady at cracker barrel was banged up this scumbag shouldn't be able to breathe the same air as us hardworking people who work for the things we have. This is proof there is no justice system for the GOOD people. Obviously it's set up for druggies & thieves who we read day after day in the crime reports for the same crimes committed from the weeks & months before! How can the judge or judges sleep at night knowing they let these same druggies out amongst the good people of our town to only commit the same crimes over & over? Please feel free to clue me in or help me understand why this keeps happening.

I cannot tell you why the justice system allows this other than they are either getting kickbacks or doing it too. You are right...It is NOT fair! The victim has no rights. The ONLY thing that will stop these thugs is a bullet! We need to ALL carry a fire arm. Somebody tries to hurt you or your family - Put a bullet in their head. Problem solved! They can't hurt anybody else and the judge doesn't have to worry about the paperwork for releasing the trash back into society. The pill problem is much worse than most realize. It's a choice people are making. Too bad more of them don't die. Then we wouldn't have to worry about them.
truth is

He keeps making bond somehow! He should be thrown under the jail. He is a waste of space and air. He has never been anything besides a thief and a junkie he has robbed half of Newport. I hope that this time they will make his bond so high that he wont be able to get out and hopefully he will get some time that way atleast we know one piece of crap is off the streets.

One of these days (he) or some other thug is going to try to rob the wrong person and get shot. Then of course there will be all kinds of people on here telling us what a good boy/girl they were and how none of the drug use was their fault and how life just done em wrong...blah blah blah. Enough to make ya wanna puke!

He needs to be shot and put out of his misery!

A 72 year old man in a wheel chair? Get real here.
And the 2nd one was an old woman too.

The first one I don't feel too sorry for because she invited him (a person she didn't know) into her vehicle and took him somewhere. We live in a dangerous world and a town full of druggies and thugs. You don't give somebody a ride that you don't know.

I actually had someone yelling at me as I drove away once in a parking lot because I wouldn't give her a ride. Screw you. Call 911 if you need help. Don't scream and cuss me because I don't trust you enough to give you a ride to somewhere.
