not a hundred cuts dildo a hundred stitches and as far as the owner of the bar his word is not worth a damn he comes from a long line of criminals who are generally in garretts shoes.and the meth whore that where fighting over thats young enough to be their granddaughter is no better . known all these people except les my whole life and none of them are worth killin and anyone who would hang , sleep or buddy up to them couldn't be much better.
the simple solution is to burn the bar and put all parties involved in jail and lose the key.

Well Mr. 24tbone, I was enjoying your tirad up to your "simple solution." Burn the bar down and life sentences for all? That's the same logic that Doyle used in his handgun solution. It's not going to workout for him. At any rate I'm submitting your statement ["not a hundred cuts dildo"] to Bartlett's: It is an opening line equal to any from Dickens.

I DO NOT KNOW THE SHERIFF neither do i want to know the dumb ass or his dumb troopers who made the call. But i do know Les a hell of a lot better.I am the one in Ca. who he comes out to see and go on Harley rides.Les would not hurt anyone unless he had too.So don,t talk about what you think you know or was told by someone who thinks he knows. I don,t know everything that went on but I will know soon, Les is getting a lot better as of tonight [ Tuesday]he will be mover to a room tomorrow for a lot of rest.When he is able we in Ca. will bring him here for a while.==GIVE HIM A BRAKE
I am so glad for your comment, because I also know Les from here in Tn. He only lives a few miles from my best friend's bar. He has never been in trouble there, or even tryed to cause trouble. I have never seen him mad. And trust me, I have known him for at least 10 years. He is a wonderful person. I use to be a cop and being a cop doesn't make you right. It's suppose to be to help not hurt. I became sick with cancer and had to step down, but I still know the law, and it's not to be in a bar with a gun, and hurt anyone, we are suppose to protect and serve. I am so mad at this situation I can't stand it.I don't know you, but trust me, I appreciate your comment. I am not the kind of person that thinks cops are perfect, I worked with them and trust me they are not what the seem. I tryed to help not hurt. Again, Les is a great person. So, thanks for your comments. Ruby

You know me well sir. What am I now that you've appeared? It is the envy of you that has destroyed me!
If Les is not diagnosed as a complete dumbass, then I will stand corrected. Keep me posted.

Doyle Garrett is a DRUNK! He is a Woanizer and made several deals with women, back in the day, that if they wanted out of their tickets, he would 'work something out'. I am incredulous that Dennis is, evidently as crooked as many small county sheriffs. In fact, it really hurts me that he would work to cover this up and become part of the 'good ole boy' network.
The fact that people would 'take up' for Doyle and say he is a good guy is ludicrous; he IS NOT! Not a good guy at all!!!

Doyle also has an odd way of pronouncing 'Ireland'. It sounds like he's saying 'urlan' It might not bother crack whores, but I can barely stand up around such a hilarious accent. There's a cartoon character out there waiting for Doyle's dialect. Look out Huckaberry Hound, there's a new Sheriff in town, and he's the shootin' kind.

Les is out of ICU and in a regular room. The truth will soon come out, and all of Les' friends will make sure Dildo Doyle Garrett has no protection and no place to hide from his attempted murder escapade. EVERYONE'S FINDING OUT THE TRUTH!! THERE'S NO PLACE LEFT TO HIDE!!! and for all of you ill willed s.o.b.'s that said bad sh*t about Les, when you find out the truth, you should be ashamed of yourselves. you should be as fortunate as us to call a man like Les our friend!!

This is a sad situation. My prayers go out to Les' family. I do not know either person involved personally but have lived in Morgan County all of my life and this good ole boy system is getting old folks.

this is a bad thing that has happen, but you know people don't think, there is a third person involved here that is suffering, someone who had nothing to do with the shooting, Ralph, business is down because of the shooting, this is a nice place to go to, and we need to also support Ralph,

sorry but ralph's daughter being a little slut is why all this started in the first place.if she wasn't a money grabin meth head and chose to limit her partners to one this would have never happened. also the two jack asses ivvolved in the shooting should be ashamed for even thinking that a girl 25 + years younger than them would be worth friggin with out causing trouble

Sluts have never hurt the bar business. Gun violence on the other hand ...
Bring back Tuesday 'quarter beer' night, Wednesday 'ladies' night and a mirror ball, and the place will fill up with the best Morgan County has to offer. That's a promise and a threat.

Do you people actually think that the sheriff and his deputies (not troopers california boy)can cover up something with this much publicity. Call your DA if you think someone should have been charged by now. And remember, if your not very bright, be quiet and maybe no one will find out.

i agree with wakeup if you think that someone should have been charged by now call the da he is a good man and maybe he can help you understand there is such a thing as a grand jury. as far as the sheriffs department goes i havent agreed with everything that dennis does but he and the chief deputy angel were right all the way. let the da deside that way there is no bias. dennis did work with mr. garret and he and his office did not want any bias accused at his department
