If he wasn't thinking about his own kids why should we. I have friends and family that are worried about having jobs to support there on kids. Their kids don't live in 7.5 million dollar mansions. They would be on the streets if the business shut down. That's the people I'm worried about not his kids.

most of the legitimate jobs should be safe. griffin wants the companys he invested in put into receivership which means that someone else would be running them. thats the only way he stands any chance to get any of his money back. funny how jones was bragging all last year about how much money he was making selling text books when he was millions in the red.

I wonder if the Murray Ledger and Slime includes "Individuals are presumed innocent until proven guilty..." at the end of every article about someone committing a crime?

So tell me something...Why does a guy who has a 7.5 mil house need another house in the woods behind his barns??? I heard it was his man cave and if that is true then what arrogance.

That extra house is for the peasant, no wait, I mean, the groundskeeper to live in. Never more than 10 seconds for personal service, and you still keep the peasant quarters away from the plantation/castle. History repeats itself even though it's 2012 and not 1050AD. Im always slightly surprised that people pitty a person like this. And about all these comments about jealously? Anyone who looks beyond the donations, that seem they weren't really his to give, should realize it's hard not a hard group of people to dislike. I assure you, all the money that my wife and I haven't siphoned from someone else (at the risk of destroying the jobs we provide because of my actions), is treating us just fine. Isn't any job that must always be infused with outside capital doomed eventually? And if the bubble must pop, better today than if he employed 2,000 people instead of 300. Murray should still stay positive, every job except his and the 10-12 cronies could stay for many years if the allegations are true.

I and many on here have made our own mistakes. I paid for my mistakes and i think and hope it made me a better man. I hope that Chuck pays his dues and people give him a chance to become a better person. He has a long way to go to reach humility, He achieved his status on Griffins back, he got carried away with the money on a level that was way above what i have been through but if I learned my lesson then maybe he can to. There is always hope for an individual to learn. But this affects a lot of people and I believe it is a Viable topic for public discussion. AND I FIRMLY BELIEVE HE SHOULD PAY HIS DUES-OTHER PEOPLE DO!!! HE IS NOT ABOVE IT... But do keep in mind he is human and that much money corrupts easily, I have seen a lot less money corrupt people. So corrupted he is and pay he must but i have known him for a period of my life before he had such wealth and just maybe there are redeeming qualities about him. I hope he pays for the unethical behavior, i hope that Griffin keeps the businesses open and I hope that people realize Chuck Jones is just a person both good and bad. BUT DAMN PEOPLE THAT WAS A LOT OF MONEY TO BURN THROUGH FOR SURE, I AM AMAZED....

And thatÂ’s how the legal system is supposed to work. Each side gets its day in court, where everyone is equal in the eyes of the law.

When all this is passes and Chuck still has the business, the house and the cars, how are you all going to spin that? Think it over now so you will be ready, because in the end this is how things will be.

At the very least the good will he was buying with his donations is now gone.

Hope he does keep the business, also hope he learns some humility, what he needs is ego deflation , personality change and spirituality but I'm afraid if he does win he will not change and he will continue to be criticized.

If he wins he will feel even more untouchable.

I have a question for you. Have you even read the court documents? Do you even know what all he has done and stolen from this man? Just because you know him does not mean he isn't a scum bag. Do you realize that most scum bags put on a good show to the public but behind closed doors they are a different person. I guess he pulled the wool over your eyes to but it's time to come to terms that he is not what you thought he was.

No way does CAJ keep the businesses and they thrive. Without outside capital, the businesses are not sustaining and the outside capital has and will dry up.
Here is an interesting question. Can anyone figure out why the Paducah Sun is ignoring this? It is, regardless of what you think of CAJ, a HUGE story. Are they somehow in the tank on this? Or are they waiting for something bigger? Criminal charges perhaps?

They don't like to upset the owners and monied interest. Right wing publications tend to favor the rich.
