it was 15 years ago, its time to let go of the past.

Pro Tip: Justice is swift. what these people are trying to do after 15 years is called revenge.

Well what if it was your son? What do you do if justice is not done? I think they have been very patient and enduring.I'm not so sure i could have handled it the way these folks have all these years.God bless this family.People out here do care and will pray for the justice your son deserves.

The Doziers need justice for their son. Benton county should reopen the case and take more time to view the documents. I'm sure there are new faces in the force that could take another look and see something different that the others might have missed. Or maybe the authorities didn't want to take the time to read through all documents or even do good ole foot work and pound the pavement for answers.

If there is no justice then revenge can be just as sweet, maybe more so because justice is doled out by somebody that usually wasn't affected by the crime. Revenge gets to happen by those that felt the most pain.

Sometimes getting revenge is the only justice a person can get.

If a police officer were killed the case would never close and someone will go to prison, even if they are innocent.

Isn't law enforcement wonderful!

God says, "Vengence is Mine".
I believe that once God has laid his hand on a man, I should remove mine.

Would it ease the pain if an innocent man went to prison for this crime? I think I got your point, but some may interpret your comment as being too overzealous for retribute.

However, I do agree that it srikes a nerve to see Police Officials stand before media cameras and state that "This is different, this was one of our own".

I am of the opinion that the sworn duty of Police Officers are "To Protect And Serve". I am not under the opinion that this should mean "especially if it's one of our own".

I have long felt that in order for our surroundiing cities to have been a step ahead of gang warfare, we should have recruited experienced Police Officers from out of State. If you hire an officer from Chicago, another from LA, NY, Philedelphia, Atlanta. Officers who all have worked in gang infested cities might like to come to a city like Springdale, Rogers, or Fayetteville and use their gang fighting experiences to deter it rather than battling it.
