This is not Duncan's first incident of this kind. I am possitive that they have already had the FBI look into their nice establishment before. I hope this time they do the right thing. If I was anyone, as an American, I would be terrified to live or be arrested in that town. Scary!!!!!!
Melissa reminds me of a dream that I once had. I was a young woman riding my Harley Spotster through the back yard at a friends house. I was driving around 90mph when I hit a piano string stretched across two posts just wide enough to get my Harley through it. A surgeon at the Duncan Hospital sewed my head back on and told me to take any complaint that I might have to the local City Council. I did just that and was laughed out of the room. I never went back to a Duncan City Council Meeting. I hope this sheds some light on the intellectual level of some of our finest citizens.

Yes...I think it was suicide threat that came across the scanner. We bought ours for $129.00 at WalMart.

<quoted text>I have to disagree with you. This man was the one responsible for his death. As the previous poster stated, you can't watch all these people every second.Block checks are performed every half hour in my department unless the prisoner is deemed suicidal. Obviously it is pretty constant under those circumstances. Unless the prisoner is naked, or in a paper suit, he or she can kill themselves very quickly. They can smash their heads on the walls, etc. They can stick their faces into a toilet and drown. They can stuff food down their throats. There are so many ways a person can commit suicide, it's not funny. You can't possible watch all of them intently. When someone decides to kill himself, the blame rests squarely on his shoulders. Many of these people show no signs of their intent, nor do they state that they want to hurt themselves. Try spending some time in a prison or detention center. You will be a little less inclined to throw the blame on others.
I saw it coming. I knew he was going to do it. An hour before he hung himself a lawton hoe turned him down. Said he wasn't good enough for her. She was my sister in law.

Inmate suicide is a great cost saving measure. Why is everyone getting so upset? It's not like one of these guys would have discovered a cure for something. Let them do what they want to themeselves, just keep them from inflicting harm on the good people. That's all that's required. I'll pocket the tax savings and smile all the way to the bank. You should too.

As CEO for General Electric he finds everything o.k. to sell merchandise and secrets to Iran for development of their infrastructure. He is for big business and government growth in all areas. Obama will spread his lies tonight as he addresses the state of the union in another hour of lying. Immelt is his man and needed to pay him off as promised in his campaign.

2+2=7 is a mistake. Armed robbery, drunk driving, calling someone an A**hole that you don't even know -- those aren't mistakes, those are the actions of an idiot.

I was in Stephens County for 24 hours for driving under suspension. There was a lady that keep useing the restroom on herself because of medical problems. She was held in a drunk tank by herself and guards would tell her she fucking stunk and to wash her ass or they would take her naked ass outside and wash her with a water hose. Later that night she cut her wrist with the glass in her eye glasses. They brought in the medics bandaged her up and threw her back in there. People were not getting their meds either. This was never even made public that this had happened. I called channel 7 news the next day and reported it but they said its not the first report of this kind and they can not really look any further into the issues. Something needs to be done!
Just a damn shame is what it is !

The Duncan cops are probably the people buying the drugs. I know years ago, before I got out of that hell hole, all the cops bought their guns at one place, their drugs from the gun dealer's son, and the wife and daughter of the gun dealer were where they got their adult fun.
Allen Richard's was getting his love from the same places and later disappeared. People in Lawton are really looking for him.
