It is hard to tell who has the kids. Niether of them need them. When Richie had the kids at the apartments, he would shut his door and send them outside to play by themselves. He did have them but he didnt need them either. Tons of people in and out of there. There was drugs in and out of there. As for Sammy, she is worthless to. Any mom that would abondon her kids to go be with man after man and get a high is not a mother. They would pond the oldest off to her mom who was wiped out all the time and didnt need him either. I think the best them kids had it was with Richies mom. Oh and this stuff that went on at the "Town and Country Motel" isnt anything new with him. It is pretty bad when you live in an apartment and feen so bad for drugs that you cut a whole in the crawl space in the attic to go to your neighbors apartment to steal Perks. If you read the News Watchman, this wasnt the only incident with Richie. There was 2 others mentioned in the paper.

So Richie shot him over dope, and before he shot steve he had went and tried to rob someone else, by dude wasnt there and he didnt get shit. So there for they all are druggies, im happy i cleaned my life up and am dond with the dope game. Drugs arent worth loosing ur life.

I wonder what Steve Hartley's sidekick Rachel had to do with the whole thing. It's beyond me how local law enforcement just allow these people to operate. Steve and Rachel have been in similar incidents time and time again. However, here we are again. This time innocent people could have easily been hurt as a result of their drug dealing. These people are an obvious menace to our community and doing nothing continues to be the response by our judicial system.

The drug dealers and all the other low lifes don't have to play by the rules whereas law enfoecemnt's hands are tied due to our constitution. Read up on Search and Siezure then walk a mile in a cop's shoes and see how frustrating it is when you can't bust these assholes because the laws are written to protect the guilty and not the innocent!

It was a drug deal but, this is why Richard Lee Brushart will not be charged. They all know this Richard is killing people and they allow it. This in not the first time that he's be involved in this type of crime. My cousin was with Richard Johnson and Richard Brushart and Richard Johnson went out one day and robbed a few store's and Richard Brushart walked out a free man. The other Richard done a flat 9 year's in prison. This Richard Brushart is allowed to do the crime's he commits. Is it because, he's related to Political People? Now, if people watch and sees what happens to this Richard Brushart, you'll be surprised. The witnesses' said they seen a man ( Steve Hartley ) run out the front door of the motel and Richard run out next, rised his gun up and shot Steve in the back while Steve was fleeing for his life. Now, they have Steve saying that it was all his fault and that is not right. How, can Richards family allow him to keep doing the crime's against civilian's? This Richards family is in charge of a Community Action and their job is to protect and serve the community not to let harm to continue. I do know that ever since I started speaking about this Richard my life has been a living hell. All I'm doing is looking out for our community and for the safety of this community. IT NEEDS TO STOP. Pike County Community Action is causing a lot of grief with my family and neighbor's just because, I'm looking out for the safety of this community. Ever since my injury at the pike community action look at all the things that keep happening to me and my wife. My wife can't get a job in this community because, of the harassment from pike cac, the hamman church was set on fire, my attorney and myself sat through an IC hearing with a gun next to our heads and my neighbor put up a little privacy fence and put no trespassing signs' all over it facing our house. This is called "Government Harassment". Look at my neighbor's and see what kind's of job's they or their family member's are being offered to stay away from us. Jesse Ventera said that this is the type of things that our Government is doing to people. He is very correct.
