That description is so great I bet they find him by never lol. Knowing Columbia County and Lake City how I do they'd arrest a white guy for this then beat a confesion out of him if somebody was to say he painted his face black and put on a mask. CCSD and LCPD are jokes. They need real detectives. That can do proper police work. They arrested me in 99 for numerous armed robberies. I said it wasn't me they however didn't listen cause a cop can't be wrong. Well 90 days later I walked away a free man. All charges dropped before trial the day before I picked my jury. I was told to cop out take the plea for 15 in and 10 on paper. Yeah right if I don't you giving me 25-life hell I'd rather have life before I say I did something I didn't. They tried scaring a man with nothing to fear.

Yep that's me. I just wonder if this is still the practice around here? I hope not I hope justice is served and he's caught. I just don't won't some poor guy won't can't afford a lawyer or can't afford bond. This countries prisons are filled mostly with poor folks that took a plea of 2-3 years rather than go to trial and get 10-15. That's the problem a lot of them was innocent just couldn't afford proper representation, so they take the least amount of time fearing they'll get way longer with a public pretender vs a real lawyer. It's sad but true, I'd say 50-70% of law enforcement practice their craft like this. Prison has also become a industry in this country.

So True, I read a story a few yrs. ago about an old man that robbed a bank for a few dollars went outside sat own and waited to be arrested??? he needed an operation he could not afford. So Why shouldn't we all do something like this? Prisoners have free medical care. and we Working americans don't. HMMMM sounds like the criminals know something we don't.
