If you will go to CourierAnywhere.com and listen to the tape recording posted on FOWLER you will understand why John Thomas was indicted. Turns out HCMS wasn't the first school he carried in,,,just one of several.
Is Fowler an elected official? Member of the school board? Just a concerned citizen? Who is he?

John Thomas is doing a great job.To bad this obstacle was put in his way . All staff ,with proper training,should be carrying.And yes ,i do have a child in school, and if it needs discipline or protection while in school,i trust this school system to do so.
This obstacle was not "put" into John Thomas' way,,,,,,,,,he brought all this upon his own head. HCMS was not the first school he carried in,,,,South Side was another one !! I think you revealed your hand when you referred to your child as an "IT" ,,,,,,

If people would put as much time, effort and money into helping kids in this county as some people have this issue, then everyone would benefit. Jesus said blessed are the peacemakers for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. People generally do what they love. If you love spreading hate and discontent, then thats what you do. If you love people and want to put forth good fruit, then thats what you do. Its so simple. What would Jesus do?

That is not what I asked, you halfwit. I asked a question about his identity. Do you get that stupit. His I-D-E-N-T-I-T-Y, as in name, rank, and serial number. Got it!

No. You're making a personal attack on the man who brought it in front of the grand jury.

That much I get.

It's irelevant.

How is asking someone's name a personal attack? I know several people named Fowler. I am wondering if this is one of the people I know or if he is a stranger to me. Now run your finger along the lines and read it out loud with your wrinkly lips. Does that help.

Well that is not excactly true. He broke Jewish laws several times. Read your Bible and you will see it had a lot to do with intent.

JT may have a carry permit, that is NOT training to handle crisis situations. That is NOT training in how to handle an attacker or attackers.
Yes, maybe if there was a student or adult in the school with a gun he could get lucky and take them out and become a hero. OR, students could be running around in chaos, JTs nerves get the best of him, his bullet(s) hit the wrong people. Then what?!
Same goes for having armed faculty. I am not saying this is a bad idea, but it IS a horrible idea if they are not properly trained and counseled in all aspects and scenarios such responsibility carries.

JT is In the hot seat not based on his ability to be a great teacher, principal, or superintendant. He is in trouble with the law because of his obvious disregard for the law!
The reason it has become such a huge deal and controversy is because everyone who could have addressed the issue on the date in question didnt for fear of their job, social standings, and future acceptance of themselves and their family in this judgemental town.
I dare say that the reason none of his faculty while he was principal at PWSS brought it to anyones attention back then was b/c they assumed it was ok since he was the principal or because they knew it wasnt but couldnt afford to risk their job, social standings, and acceptance of themselves and their family in this judgemental town.(yes, i know that was redundant, it was on purpose)
I am quite certain that many many faculty and staff in the HC School System, as well as other families in this county, wont speak up is because they know the risks associated with going against the grain in this town.
Its a very messed up world we live in folks, when we cannot speak our own self truths for fear of backlash on ourselves and our families.
I have no clue who Jerry Fowler is, who is kin to, where he came from, what he does, or anything. But wether you agree with him on this issue or not, you must respect the man for standing up for what he believes in no matter how hard that may be!

Of which of the civil laws do you refer to ,,or do you refer to the religeous law of the Jewish people ?? John 1:17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. John 7:19 Did not Moses give you the law and yet none of you keepeth the law? Why go ye about to kill me? John 8:14-19 Jesus answered and said unto them, Though I bear witness of myself, yet my record is true: for I know whence I came, and whither I go; but ye cannot tell whence I come , and whither I go. Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man. And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me. It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true. I am one that bear witness of myself,and the Father that sent me beareth witness of me. Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered, Ye neither know me , nor my Father. If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also.

John 19:4 Pilate therefore went forth again, and saith unto them, Behold, I bring him forth to you, that ye may know that I find no fault in him.

Yes, he is living with another man and has been for a while. His nme is Duncan Callens and he is in his early 30's, I think. I know this for a fact because I live in the same area of Holiday Hills as he lives. Also, I have heard that he use to carry a gun when he was at South Side but I have asked several people who worked there when he did and they say that if he did, they didn't know aanything about it.
