According to the Paris News, Gary Young has bragged that he has given harsher sentences and put more people away in Lamar County than ever before. He bragged that people would rather accept life sentences than go before a Lamar County jury. He bragged that 2011 will be even better. I guess he's trying to get in the Lamar County book of records. He certainly isn't interested in justice. Gary, if you look at this on the flip side, what you're saying is now that you're the D.A. crime hasn't dropped a single bit. What you should be trying to do is crime prevention, rehabilitation especially for young defendants, fairness and etc. Getting harsh sentences for minor crimes isn't exactly a thing to brag about. Communities where the D.A. has some commom sense realize this. What have you done about the death of Brandon McClelland? Is Cody Posey still roaming free even though he was ordered back to prison? What did you do about the white man, Johnny Dale Smith Jr, who stabbed the black man in his back because he was talking to a white woman.? You dropped that didn't you? What about that Lester woman who stabbed the black woman 4 times over a man? Shes free as a bird isn't she? You ignorant bastard. Its not how many people you can destroy that determines how good of a job you're doing. People in Lamar County are totally ignorant about how you really operate.

Why is it that you seem to find something wrong with this? Passing out harsher sentences is something that Lamar Co needs. Your okay with someone committing a crime against you and getting a slap on the wrist? Thats not okay with me doofus, harsher sentences may deter some of these idiots from committing them in the first place. Oh and thanks for putting this on topix since I don't get the online paper. Now I can vote for Mr.Young when he's up for re-election. He seems to be the right man for Lamar Co.

Gary Young is a good prosecutor and does a great job for the county. He doesn't play favorites that I've ever seen and earns his pay.
Crow doesn't like anyone in authority who does a good job and treats black criminals as what they are, criminals. And yet thinks they're a good representative of the black community. It's really comical.

Gary Young has my vote, if he keeps up his good record of giving harsh sentences to criminals. If they don't want the harshness, they should not do the crime.

For future reference, my posts aren't designed for people like you. You have to have a brain of your own to understand them. They go over the head of most good old boys. This will go over your head too. Gary Young does give slaps on the wrist. Thats the point. He gives slaps on the wrist to some whites who commit violent crimes and some who are repeat offenders. His punishment depends on race, financial status or status in the good old boy system. As with everyone, you can vote for whomever you choose. Thats how it works.

YOU for sure don't, but then you're pretty clueless when it comes to things concerning the law.

A district attorney is given the responsibility to seek 'justice' in the situations they are given. This does not mean that a D.A. should seek the harshest punishment possible if it isn't 'equitable to the crime.' Responsible D.'s look at circumstances, prior record, even the legality of the investigation.
In doing so, they support the concept that 'the law is for protection of the people.' That is ALL people, victims, defendants, and convicted criminals. If a D.A. takes the stance that his constituency would regard him as 'effective' or 'hard on crime' because he attempted to give out the harshest punishment possible for any and often merely alleged) crime, then justice is thrown right out the window. Many do not look at the bigger picture & truly believe draconian law and punishment help deter criminals and uphold the concept of 'justice.' Each case is unique and should be handled as such - never with an ill-advised preconceived notion that 'the more severe, the better.'(If true, it would assume people ponder the consequences in emotionally charged scenerios - how many murderers think "death penalty" - in the moment? You merely end up with every accused being thrown in the same pot & (if poor) go to prison at tax payer expense and no rehabilitation. Justice should be weighed one case at a time, and JUSTICE should be the goal, not creating a new Botany Bay. Pease remember - an attorney is part of the legal PROFESSION - it is a job & it tends to pay well. The same person who is D.A. now prior to: defended many repeat offenders (some succesfully). it is BIG business, just matters which team you play for at the moment. Many are all too happy to play at everyone's expense.

Theres some people who say they support Gary Young just to spite Jim Crow but those of us who really know Gary Young know that he's not fit to be anyones county attorney. I agree its supposed to be about justice. Gary Young doesnt know the meaning of that word.

I know Gary Young, in the business field as well as out of it. I consider him a good man in both cases.
As far as his job - I don't believe that you could put anyone in that position and not have people that will like and dislike that individual.
And whoever has that job, you are going to find people that agree and disagree with the decisions being made.
It goes with the job.....it's not a pleasant one - or an easy one.

Gary is about getting justice done for those who've been unjustly treated.
As Guest said, no matter who is in the job, someone will disagree with them and call names and hurl unfounded accusations at them.
That he has the ability to turn them off and continue to do his job is a good thing. I don't see him losing sleep over those like Crow or others who only want to stir up trouble.

P.S.
I know Gary too and have been affected by his aggresive manner in prosecuting people.
He's still better than the one before him who buried cases he didn't want to prosecute.
No one is infalliable.

The issue with Gary Young is not about race. It's that he is a PoS. He needs to be replaced. He has screwed up so many young persons lives who have made poor decision/decisions at a young age that don't have a clue about understanding what they're doing and the consequences until they're older. There is no justice for anyone as long as he is a DA.

Gary Young IS a P.O.S. I have dealt with him first hand, in both his role as a hired attorney, AND a prosecutor. And for the record...I am white. But I am a working class guy like most of Paris. That bastard pinned a sex assault on me involving 2 teenage tramps. the kicker was:

1. I was at the other end of the county with 30 other people when the "so-called" assault was to have happened.

2. There was NO evidence. Strictly hearsay. "He said, She said."

3. I was one of 5 GUYS, from totally different walks of life, who was prosecuted for the SAME CRIME WITH THE SAME 2 GIRLS!! That's right!% different guys, nailed for the same crime with the same 2 tramps, at different times during the same year! Gee! What are the odds?!?

Gary Young is a fraud. he creates cases to prosecute, instead of presenting the cases given to him by the law enforcement agencies of Lamar Co. I have had the top cop in the state (concerning crimes against children) Det. Joel Pridgeon, of the Austin PD. look over my files and even he said there never was any case to be had in the first place! Even HE said it was corrupt. This man will force you to accept a plea deal. it's easy to do when you threaten someone with 80 years, and he has the court rigged and got your lawyer, a sniveling little bitch named Will Biard, to refuse to try your case the day you go to pick a jury.

My case is in the start of it's appeals process and may take years to go through. I already served my TDCJ time and will never get that back. i will forever be branded a monster no matter what I do...and the only thing I did, was piss him and one of his clients off during a child custody case.

Be warned...you don't even have to break the law in Lamar County. You just have to piss someone off. Hearsay is apparently admissible in Paris. If it can happen to me..it can happen to anyone. If you don't believe me...ask Dr. Jerry Pederson. He was guy number 2 in that whole mess.

Welcome to Lamar County.. they are all sniveling little turds. Corrupt, all of them. Did they make you go to that nut Ondravik for sex counseling? I know of one poor slob similar to this situation that had to go for years and pay out the azz and all he did was have sex with his girlfriend who was 2 yrs younger than him. consentual but then she got mad and yelled rape. Hell he may still be going out there.
