You would be correct everyone does have one. However, I do try to explain WHY I believe the way I do. Thats really when you start to get somewhere.

as far as chris thasher goes he rolled the dice and lost big time. not only selling dope but going for craps in the court room. he lost fair and square.
You are correct Chris Thrasher did roll the dice and lose.

Fair and square?..... Well that is arguable..... which is kinda the point of the post to begin with. Doug Clark and Chris Thrasher both sold drugs in a school zone. Clark sold thousands of pills and pled guilty and Thrasher sold 6 pills, had a trial, and was found guilty.

Their sentences are totally different, that is the whole point. Everyone seems upset that Thrasher elected to use his (as is everyones) CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT and have a trial. THRASHER HAS TO DO 17 YRS DAY FOR DAY. CLARK GOT 10 year probation.

Well for those of you saying it was just 6 pills...... That was just the amount he was caught with at the time. How may pills did he sell prior to that? And how many more would have been sold if he wouldn't have been busted? Did u ever wonder about that?

Absolutley, you are probably correct. He probably did sell more at other times. But to be fair then the door of justice would have to swing both ways wouldn't it? Do you honestly think that Doug Clark sold just the amount he was caught with?

I respected Mr. Clark fine as person. I have no problem with him.

I dont know all the facts, never said I did. This never was a personal attack against Mr. CLark or Chris Thrasher. The names are not even important. I just have a REAL hard time with how the premise of justice in the cases.

Justice should mean something. When you get something as corrupt and blatanlty immoral as this it should be looked at with great scrutiny.

I am not judging Mr. Clark. All Im saying is he plead guilty several hundred drug charges. His sentence was ten year probation.

Chris Thrasher sold 6 pills, had a trial and was found guilty. He has do 17 years day for day. There is no justice here.

I'm sorry, maybe Im wrong. What did he plead to?

Im sure he paid all the money for his doing nothing, right?

I'm sure he paid Attorney James AH Bell $250,000 for nothing.

I'm sure he paid the Hundreds of thousands of dollars to police and give up his drug store just because he "unknowingly" took some fake prescriptions. Im sure the police did lie about a few things. They generally always do. However, I dont believe a person would have "pled" guilty and paid out that much money if they had not have done something illegal. But what do I know? Maybe he was totally innocent. Its not really the point of the discussion.

All Im saying is he pled guilty to several drug charges in a school zone and Chris Thrasher was found guilty of selling drugs in a school zone. Why do you think their sentences should be so different?

Sir I have no problem with Mr. Clark. I am not trying to attack him personally whatsoever. As I said earlier, he pled guilty to some charges. You say he done this to go home and die. Maybe, I dont know. Why would you pled if you didnt do anything? Especially with the money he had. If I were dying and I were accused of doing something I didnt do I would not plead. What have you got to lose? But what do I know.

The point of this topic is Justice. Also to show what the whole Drug War is about THE MONEY.

U are not fooling anyone u drug addict.

I agree it's not easy to raise kids by yourself but lots of women and men do it everyday it's no harder on men than it is on women. Lots of druggies in this town that should have been behind bars 30 years ago,but they are still out there still doing the same thing they have done for years.I bet some would be surprised at who is behind a lot of this.
I imagine a lot of people know who these big shots are. One difference between Mr. Clark and Chris is that one had money and one didn't. Our Sheriffs and Police Chief (from years ago and now) have just let people get by with it. I will tell you one thing If I ever know that someone sales my kids any drugs they will be very sorry they did. Oh and my kid would get a good ole butt kicking to and have everything taken away and go get help. I wonder how many kids in Overton County have died because of drugs (lots). Have a nice night
