Honey who is jealsous of having the title as a known criminal who bribbed a judge. He snitched on everyone else to save his own a** so who would want him as a friend. He is a thief and a criminal. He didn't help the people on the other side that was trying to get justice because he bribbed the judge to get the outcome he wanted. All money isn't good money and everyone is entiled to their opinion so u can't get made over our opinions. If he was a good guy u would ignore all of our input and keep thinking he was a good guy, but NO, you felt like you had to defend him. He is wrong not us!!!!!!

Obviously Scofield, your lack of punctuation only foreshadows your lack of intelligence and everyday knowledge. You obviously don't know the Langston family, or anyone that is honestly close enough to speak for their experience with Joey being incarcerated. Your pathetic posting on a topic that is over 2 years old shows how the jealousy that exists in your simple little mind toward Joey and his success. Joey Langston did 2 years in a federal prison, and still has a substantial portion of the community relying on his good will and support. What have you done? And more importantly, what will you ever do that people will remember before you die?

I know the Langston family. I know of the hurt that his family went through. He is a great human being, and uses his money and other gifts that he has been given, to help the people in Prentiss County, and way beyond the county line...and it should be said, that he has paid his debt to society, due to the serious crime he committed....and he committed them, as he confessed.....he is a felon, for the rest of his life, based upon his decisions in life....but....If you are a Christian, then you forgive him, as he pulls himself up by the bootstraps, and you appreciate his " love of service " to his fellow man.....and that is to be appreciated....he's ok with life, and we should all just leave him and his family alone, and let them enjoy their family and community time......all is good.

Do you really have so little faith in our justice system to think he cheated to gain every bit of success? The FBI had access to every bit of information that existed on Joey. Not to mention all court proceedings have records and Judges who we trust to oversee any disputed matter.

Also Scofield, don't act as if jealousy is not something you battle with constantly. Your name depicting a convict television character shows how much thought you put into your ridiculous rants, especially aimed at one of the more successful individuals in our area. Enough said.

Greed is basically wanting to control something only so others can't have access to it. Obviously, that is not the case here since there is very little to want in North MS. Motivating yourself to achieve more than the average man should be admirable, not frowned upon by a less-then-satisfied depression case.

Max Ketty: What is "Old Joe" far from "finished paying"?

Ledbetter1971: You seem to be able to speak for Joe by directly stating you "know" what he thinks. Are you close enough to him to communicate his absolute mindset? Or, how do you get such insider information?

Feel free to fill in the rest for us uninformed bystanders "the whole truth and nothing but the truth."

S-U-C-C-E-S-S--: When someone is indicted on these charges, all financial records are available to the court. If any payment was received under the table, its obvious that an anomaly exists within their income statements and cash-flow statements. Substantial cash w.drawals are keys for investigators, and sometimes can be indicators of "payments under the table." After everything that has happened, you really can still convince yourself of that, and that no single trial he was involved in was overturned for undue influence? What about success in jury trials? You obviously have based your entire decision on a single set of circumstances. This is just being naive and uninformed.++++++===>> >>>>>>>

I don't see why you people continue to fuel this thread.

The guy is home. His family and friends have rallied around him.

Why not allow someone who has paid his required political debt to society to advance on in life w/out trying to belittle his recovery from this scandal?

I just think it is unfortunate that some people expect everyone to be as mediocre as themselves.

Citizens of Prentiss County should begin to strive for more than comfortably settling amongst those who're only able vent their frustrations against people who strive for a higher standard of living.
