With writters like Doug Clark slandering a man who, yeah did a crime, but also he served his time. Doug don't you know that slander is a crime too? Not one thing in the song you wrote about him was true besides him being shot 5 times! But how did you say it Doug? I think it was something like the cops put five rounds in his hide. You say hide like he is a animal. Not a brother, father, or son! You said that he would steal your mama's fur coat? What about Eddies mama! Bet you didn't think about her. She passed away while he was "serving time as you put it." A month before Doug wrote his "Ballard!" You know it is one thing to write something true... thought that is what writters for the paper do? Hey Spokane community, do you know Doug a writter for the review is a liar! Better yet Doug did ya know that his son works within the same walls as you? Yes for the spoksman review! Not only is the song offensive to me, but I am sure for our community. Eddie Ray Hall what do you know about him besides the crimes? Did you know he saved my life? Yea I am not a relative or a crime partner, but his sisters best friend. So I must ask you another question Doug Clark.. hmmm didn't print your middle name! What does your mama think about your crimes.. better yet maybe I should write a song about you!! I will give you a middle name too...*thinks* Doug "your mama must be proud" Clark... or Doug "You think your hot poop on a silver platter.. but your not nothing but a cold turd on a paper plate" Clark.. I like that one. Yea I am a poet too, thought you knew.

heres a song I wrote about Doug clark...

Ballard of Doug "you think your hot poop on a silver platter, but your not nothing but a cold turd on a paper plate" Clark

I am here to rock you out with a song about a newpaper writter named Doug Clark, his song smells of a stinky fart.
He thinks he's hot poop on a silver platter, but we all know he isn't nothing but a cold turd on a paper plate.
Don't hate Doug appreciate.
Words out of Doug's Clark's mouth are only lies, I could only hope Eddie Hall sues you for slander and you cry.
Wonder what you would do in the penn? Ohhhh thats a nasty thought.. where do I begin.
With dropping of soap in the shower, ewwww or squatting in the corner like a coward.
I could only hope if he Eddie reoffends, that he takes that crow bar you mentioned in your song to your head.
What are you gonna do next write a song about me? Let me help you.. I come from a family.
I have a mother who just passed away from cancer, a younger sister, a husband who works for a union, and 2 kids, 12 and 4.
ohhhh how that song would be a bore.
Unless you do a back ground check on me too. Sure I was convicted on 13 felonies was in prison twice.
oops did I say that before you had a chance to print it? That wasn't nice!
You know in your song you put lock him up and throw away the key? People do change just like me.
I am a mother on the PTA, and just the other day...
I rescued "another" animal dropped off at a local barn, Her name is baby and she likes to play with yarn.
My nieghbor gave me a key to there house, I let there dogs out, and take care of two 4 birds.
So if you write a song about me it would be a turd!
I give you permisson to print this song, and sing it. Another question for you Doug, if you serve time for slander are you going to be the pitcher or hold the mit?
So before you let the lies flow, and print it in the newspaper, do a lil back ground work,and ask yourself, how would I feel if someone called me out.
Spoke of Doug Clarks crimes of Slander, and told Spokane what you was all about.
So next if you deside to print something on a felon.. why don't you pick one about a sex offender only doing 6 months, and getting out and reoffending.

I dated Eddie around 1982-83. I knew he got into trouble,but he had a very kind heart. I also watched the vidieo online of him. After everything he said i believe he is still Good.. That's such a true statement,what he said about if you've never been hooked on drugs you wouldn't understand. I would also like to point out that out of all of his felonies,he never hurt or killed some one? I suspect this is true since he served his time and was released. Also did he ever carry a gun while robbing? Anyways hope he will read this. I wish him the Best!! I knew he had 1 child but i thought he said 2 now. That's where he needs to put his time at. Good-Luck Eddie!! P.S. I live in Melbourne Fl.. Just wanted you to know You are a Good Soul!! one of your ex. Rose Justice

Kelsey Morse, I don't know why you've got your panties in such a bunch but Eddie Ray Hall is a and will continue to be a criminal. One post says he never hurt anyone...what? If you've ever been robbed well it hurts. Let's also note he's back in jail...what a surprise.

Yes, believe me.. I do understand how you feel. Have also been robbed myself. More than once,and it very scary even if you aren't home at the time. So, i live in Florida. But visit family in Washington. I heard Eddie say, he needed rehab.? After all this time have they offered any? Well i can say i know for fact he did live in one rehab. when iknew him. But that was24 yr.s ago. Just trying to understand. Thought i saw that he was arrested 19 day's after release. But couldn't find anything else. What for?

@ mad as hell... I do understand how it is to be robbed, As I have been robbed myself. I also have been on the other end the criminal, I was blessed to do a program where I could meet people like you victims and talk to you and you know drugs is a very very veru bad thing as I was a meth addict! I now have been clean since april 1998 and have a family am on the PTA, own my home, am a community leader, and Involved in keeping my nieghborhood safe! I am sorry that you had to deal with that..
as for my panties in a bunch! don't have none on sorry! The reason I was upset though is that Eddie is no differant than any other criminal, so why say stuff like hitting him in the head with a crow bar.. crawling crawling crawling... and lock him up and throw away the key (by the way he is very free and not locked up again) I mean sure eddie is addicted to meth or WAS! and yes he did crimes, but people do change and to publish this after he did his time for his crimes, and was punished for it, drop it don't bring it up 3 or 4 years later right after he is released.. and tell the truth!!
Also let me tell you a side of Eddie you do not know he saved my life! I was swimming in the spokane river and got caught in a current.. he risked his life to save mine. Yes I know being robbed hurts! sorry you hurt, but he like Rose said never used a weapon! He never assault anyone, not saying the fear and scarring of a robbery is not bad and does not stay with the victim.. all I was saying is that he did his time! Doug Clark is a jerk, as politely as I can say it and should of wrote his lil song 4 years ago and told the truth! and next time instead of picking on a free man, during the holidays with his family after being released leave him alone.
It not only was lies but his whole family had to read this his kids, sisters brothers, etc etc. it doesn't just hurt the criminal. There is a good side to everyone! Eddie would give you the shirt off his back!

Also on another note...(hopes Doug Clark is reading this)

Next artical you deside to do on a criminal or song.. why don't you do it on a sex offender, a child rapest, or molester!! one that keeps reoffending!

Let me give you a start of a name to use!!!

Michael George Grant SR

1.molestion on a child 6 months!!
2.1st degree child molestation (nieghbor lil girl about 6 or 7) 2 years (spokane washington)
3.1st degree rape on a child (omak washington)
1st degree child molestation
2nd degree assault on a child
fail to report as a sex offender
Was going to sentence him to SOSA a sex offender program with treatment 6 months with 3 years probation!!! I pushed for life and he plead guilty and took a plea bargin of(total 20 years)what happened to 3 strikes your out???

over a 2 year period mr. grant on a girl from the age period of 5-7 maybe even longer unknown... molested this little girl over and over threatening her with a knife saying he would kill her or whoever she tells, raping her. peeing on her, and showing her video tapes of him with other lil children! over and over and over again!!! there is more but to much for this site!!

So next time you want to sing a song, or write a artical for the news paper... about a crimianl do one on someone everyone hates! one that hurts children.. On how the system we have will give a person who hurts a child!!! our children... treatment with 6 months time, let them get out reoffend and than only 2 years!! And yet again with no address to release to is released from prison and fails to report!!(homeless I guess) how can you keep track of these monsters if they have no address?? And than they do it a 3rd time but more violent..rape and assault added to the list.

I think they should lock them up or cut off you know what!! treatment isn't working on these sick minded people... but instead give the treatment who are drug addicts the one who only steal to support there habit! To rob because if they don't they will be sick! Give these people who have a chance to make it, and to cut down on the crime wave of drigs and theft!!

*takes a breath* I could go on and on...

Hooray fo Kelsey Morse! Its about time someone put ol doug clark in his place, His articles are always about slamming someone fo rmistakes or other stupid reasons. I don't think the SR should allow him to continue to be a staff writer. He is great at pointing fingers at everyone & I bet if we checked his background he's got some skeleton's in his closet and some dirty laundry too!

GOOOOOOOO supernanny! I totally agree! And FYI mad as hell... He was locked up by mistake and is fixing to be released.. sounds like a stocker to me? I mean you knew where he was at before I did. And I know the family! Do you like those guys in prison... one of those woman that like to like write them and go visit and be the one in charge? Kinda like a groupie?

I believe that you and a few other's are in denial or just choose to ignore the fact that Eddie Hall is bad to the bone. Much of what Doug wrote about Eddie is true. He stole some jewelry from my mom that my dad got when he was over seas. And doesn't anyone know or remember when Eddie was a kid that he hurt his blind aunt and robbed her, or when he and Teddy ripped off his own brother and his families welfare money and food stamps when they stopped by to visit the parents. What kind of people do you really think we're talking about here. I just have to laugh at your stupidity. You must be as cold and uncaring as them, because it takes one to know one. Oh yea what about the time Eddie hid the body of a dead guy who was shot execution style in another guys basement for a mere $50.00, because the guy couldn't find anyone else stupid enough to do it. I have a bumper sticker that reads: Some people are alive simply because it is illegal to kill them. Now that is a true statement if you know what I mean.
