The Stokes News - Two charged with stealing vehicles in Sandy Ridge area

It is a crying shame that the Sheriff's Office bust their A** to catch these thugs, then once in front of a Magistrate, they are given little to no bond, so they are right back on the streets doing the exact same thing. When will our system going to wake up, who the hell do we have to vote out to change this? This make me sick. Did you all know that DWI drivers 99% of the time do not even get a bond, regardless of the number of times arrested. I am so tired of this, Come on magistrates and judges, who's side are you on, the honest men and women or the crooks, I sure know how it appears, and it isn't good for the hardworking honest people.

UPDATED — King police probe rash of vehicle break-ins

Chief May to Council:

The department made two arrests in connection with the Nov. 30 string of break-ins.

Just over 100 charges were filed against Christopher Joseph Whorton and Timothy Lee Overby after the first string of break-ins, the police department reported in mid-December. Whorton’s case has already been disposed. He received supervised probation, but no active time behind bars.

“That’s what we’re combating,” May told the King City Council on Monday night after Mayor Jack Warren asked for an update on the break-ins and arrests. The council members just shook their heads.

Folks it is past time that we do get these people off the streets and in a cell doing some time. We have to change our judges and Magistrates, they are allowing the crooks to hold all of us hostage, by continually allowing them back into our society. Yet if we take the law into our own hands and bury the crooks ourself, we would be doing hard time without a doubt. It is time for a real change.

I agree it is time for a change. It is like they are working in conjunction with these worthless pieces of trash. Let the break ins occur at one of their homes and see if they dont get a much larger bond and actually pull time. Guarantee you they would.
