I have to disagree with you. It may be the life Ray chose to live but he has involved allot of people into his cartel. As far as him having to pay for what he has done, well that is pure bull crap from you once again. As far as Newport being a poor town is hockey pock..Newport is full of hard working people who have the desire to be prosperous and become so because they chose to work honestly. Your post clearly indicate a narcissistic attitude who is well adjusted to feeling comfortable within the confines of excuses instead of getting out and making something of your life...As far as telling people if they don't like it in Newport to move, well if you can't get on the ban wagon with people who have lived honest lives and prefer Newport to have a better neighborhood to raise their families in, then I suggest you move to the hood.

I can remember a time when families could go to bed at night without having to lock their doors, children going trick or treating on Halloween, and could walk a block to school without the fear of putting their child in danger. Those days are gone because of drugs and thieves. So dude, maybe again you should move.

I give to those organizations also along with allot of other people, but we give honest money...His heart is to make mega bucks and it doesn't bother him how he does it either. I truly believe that he has done it so long that he probably thought he was working a honest job....

You wouldn't think that if the drugs he sold had killed your child or someone else that you were close to that could be traced back to coming from him, a few good things that he has supposly done doesn't make up for the big time wrongs he has done

It is plain that you are posting irrelevant posts to bring threads back to the top of the date list in this topix discussion forum to hurt David Hawk in his reelection bid, ironically you seem to lack intelligence also because this thread is not about him. I can't wait until you are revealed. The pendulum always swings back, and I believe you just put yourself in the path by your harassment today.
