How is Samantha not in trouble when she knew he was doing it and didnt report it as an officer of the law?! As Wayne Clark said, "Samantha should of known better also,allowing pot to be grown around little children." If this was anyone else those kids would have been taken and Samantha would have been charged as well!

Of course there is a reason that she was named. The reformer was trying to ruin her reputation. She is a professional woman and is a very good probation officer. Reformer, why would you ruin someones life by tarnishing their name? This is an awful situation, but she was not the criminal.

Well where tostart I am a good friend of the Clarks andlet me begin by telling you that A call was made to the BF police reporting that aman was STANDING ON A DOGHOUSE PEERING OVER A 6 FT STOCKADE FENCE WATCHING HIS DAUGHTER SWIM NO response by the BF PD. Gary has a son who was violently molested years ago by his exes family member this man spent 18yrs yes 18yrs in jail for this crime Was he wrong to respond in this fashion PROBABLY but remember he or his wife called the PD to report this If any of you know of the ex offender a convicted felon in vermont with a record as long if not longer than Gary is the man that looked over the fence.This is BF PD HOTDOGGING it like only the Windham County Flunkies that were hired there can do. This story has nothing to do with the beginning of the story.

Samantha Clark has kept all of you safe from criminal activity for years and you have the nerve to get on here and ruin her character. She has been an upstanding citizen and an even better probation officer. It is not her fault that her husband is struggling with addiction. She can not force him to get help and should not have to divorce him or lose her job because he has the disease of addiction. She is an excellent mother and role model for her children. We all make mistakes and she may have made a few bad choices, but does not deserve to lose her job or have her character ruined because people on this site have nothing better to do than to air people's dirty laundry on a public forum and in the media. Further more, if you are at all concerned with her children's welfare you would not be writing this about their mother. SAMANTHA CLARK DID NOTHING WRONG. SHE IS NOT A CRIMINAl. SHE IS A VERY COMPASSIONATE, LOVING AND CARING MOTHER WHO ONLY WANTS WHAT IS BEST FOR HER CHILDREN. PLEASE CONTROL YOUR URGES TO RUIN HER REPUTATION.

Maybe you should learn how to type before you throw people under the bus. Gary's brothers name is Wayne A CLark II. Not just Wayne Clark. So maybe you should go back to school and learn how to spell before you judge people around you. Beacuse if you knew Wayne and Gary CLark you would know that Wayne and his Wife were there for Gary and Sam the whole weekend. Get a life. Worry about your owe, becasue I am pretty sure you like the rest of us will soon be here in the paper.

Are you concerned about these children? If you were, you would not get on a site like this and talk about your own relative. Are you a saint? I believe that you have a criminal record. Are you any better than Gary? You are very right, he should not have been growing marijuana around children, but as his brother you should be standing by him and not turning your back on him. If you are concerned enough to write trash on this site, then you should be concerned enough to help him. As far as Samantha, who are you to tell her to "kick him to the curb and move on"? She has been with this man for many years. They may have problems and he may have made some big mistakes, but she is not heartless. She cares about everyone and does not have it in her heart to kick anyone to the curb. Her job is to help people and she has helped many people to find their way into treatment. Maybe you can kick your brother to the curb, but that is not what most people do.
Confused about Wayne

I would just like everyone to know that Gary and Sam Clark are not the people that you nasty people are speaking ill about. Wayne A Clark II would NEVER be rude like this to his brother, nor does he know how to use the computer. People make bad choices all the time around this world, and this family is not any different than anybody else. The Wayne and Gary Clark that you people are writting about were young and misguided and very unsupervised as kids, maybe you should be trashing their dad.
The NEW Wayne and Gary Clark have families and making great lives out of eveything that they have to offer their families. Maybe you people should get lives, and worry about yourselves.

I am Gary Clark's brother. I am not the same Wayne Clark that responded to this article yesterday. I would never trash my brother or brothers no matter what poor choices they may make, they are my brothers and i will stick beside them thick or thin. Thank you for bringing our family further down than what we were, however it is people like you that make a family like ours stick together.
Wayne A Clark II, notice the name, whom ever was trying to trash my family more maybe you should get the whole name right next time.

Ha ha, arrest everyone in BF who knows someone who has weed, but looks the other way. The only ones left in BF would be children too young to speak and dead people.
If you took all the children away from parents with weed, where would you put them all?
It does make a difference who you are or who you know, but all in all, the whole thing will be hard on the family anyway.
The children probably are in no immediate danger with the mother. You should be ripped out of your home and put with strangers against your will. Then tell us what it is like to be a child.
I don't know these people at all, by the way.
It is just not knowing someone - she LIVES with him....

I don't know any of the parties involved in this case, but I would like to know how many people Samantha has charged with violating their probation by having had pot in their possession or failed a drug test from having smoked it?
Betcha she had no problem hauling in others.
This woman should be fired,she is not above the law and some of the mind-sets here about how for some reason the laws shouldn't/don't apply to her is wishful thinking.
How the hell can any people who have her as their probation officer take her seriously now?
If she was mine ,I'd file for a new one,
