the public defender had a debate , that is to funny. Rob you had my full support until the gun thing last night on the news. Yes it is your right to own a gun, but to have a give away for an election, that's just trashy . So i, my wife and son will vote for the other. Sorry Rob but that went to far for me.

I agree it was a stupid thing to do. But... how is Hargrove any better? In fact, I'd rather vote for someone that did some stupid like that, than for someone that can't do their job at all and send innocent people to prison. What if you or a family member end up in the position to have to be defended by a public defender? Do you want someone who is incompetent or someone that can fairly and professionally defend you? You don't think Hargrove was wrong in the way she failed to defend someone? Wrong is wrong. So, which wrong doing person will do a better job defending you? That is the real question. Think about the innocent who need to be properly defended. Think about it.

Why is it wrong or stupid to raffle off a gun? Rob isn't even doing it. A GUN SHOP OWNER who supports Rob and realizes what a JOKE Donna is is the one raffling off the gun. Oh wait. I forgot. Donna has the Church St Democrats in her corner. So long as it SEEMS bad it must be bad.

The methodist churches are also full of democrats who support abortion and homosexuality. Mostly the women but leftist Christianity continues to grow. Dark times we live in.

It is what it is. A publicity stunt. It cost him as many votes as it gained him.

What's the big deal about raffling a gun. There are a lot of people who own guns here in Marshall county. Lots of gun collectors and hunters. What's so tacky about it duck unlimited and ntwf banquet always have drawings for guns. Nobody cares about that. This has got to be one of the simplest minded statements I ever heard. But it is Marshall county so I'm not very surprised.

He has had my vote since I read where she hasn't won Any case. How are you in office that long and plead out all the cases? I would rather have someone who defends our rights in the office, instead of someone who encourages people to plead out and let people trample on our rights.

I am the author of the aforementioned "simple-minded" statement. I assure you that I am not. I have an opinion. You have the right to disagree. I take umbrage in being referred to in such a derogatory manner. I made a simple statement...not simple-minded. I own several guns. I am Southern and proud of it. Speaking for myself, the issue wasn't even about the raffle. To each his own. It was about the publicity value. It worked. There are several fine people here on Topix discussing it.

Well put citizen.
Elections, you need to get your facts straight.
Just got a not guilty verdict in a jury trial in Moore County in May.
Your boy Dalton has never won a criminal trial so let's not talk about records.

So after all the years in office, she Just got a not guilty verdict? Dalton has no record as public defender, he isn't in office yet. So his wins vs losses are not the ones we were discussing. We were discussing how many wins vs pleas (losses) that the current public defender has. I don't care what her record was before she took office. It is the public defenders office that is the main discussion.

Oh yeah, that's the ticket. Let's not look at past performance, platforms or anything that pertains to making the right choice based on logical reasoning. Instead, let's not vote for mudslingers, people who drive certain cars, or some other unrelated idiocy. Incompetence breeds incompetence.

So if someone brings up something that is wrong by the other person at a debate you will not vote for them? If so, people like you are the reason we have what we have.
