and I think on top of that he should have to walk everywhere he goes for at least a week for him to know how it feels to have your car stolen!

Johnny has been in prison before. As far as I know it was on drug charges. I heard he did 15 years. I don't know if that part is true or not. I do know he has been in prison because of drugs. The thing that gets me,

He actually had one of the best junk yards around. If he had run it right he could have made big money off of it alone. He was very good about getting lots of old stuff. He had cars in that yard from the 40's all the way through the 70's. The kind of parts us car nuts look for. While everyone else was crushing the old stuff he was holding on to his. He had the go to place when you were looking for something for your old classic car. Now because of his greed he has lost it all. All that good iron he had sitting over there he had to crush because he couldn't prove it was his. Lots of good stuff gone.
I wonder if pooh will run it now? I don't think he can stay sober long enough though.

I've never seen Pooh drink out there.

You've got to think that the entire bunch out there knew what was happening though. Why was Johnny the only one that got arrested for it?

This is commented toward Jack, my name is Brandy Schwartz and Johnny is my dad. I do not know where you are getting your so called information, but it appears that you need to get a new source. My father has never been to prison for anything, drugs or otherwise, prior to this incident, and certainly not for 15 years. Now unless you were in the courtroom & know the facts of what was said I would like to ask that you not post gossip you hear to any website trying to pass it off as the truth. Everyone is in entitled to their own opinion and has the right to post them. I do not like it, but that is each persons given right. However, remember one day it may be you and your family that is in this situation.

Well said Brandy..I personally know of someone that tried to get Johnny to do something against the law and he turned them down flat.I also think that it is interesting how this Cates sonofabitch had to (talk the law)into letting him set Johnny up.The more we know I guess the less we know.And ain't it kind of nice how cowards can make such commits knowing they don't have to face anybody.All ya'll have a good day.

Well Mrs. Summerville why don't you enlighten the topix community on the truth since you seem to think what was posted is incorrect. You have every right to post the truth. Seems you posted facts that were posted is incorrect. Go ahead now Mrs. Summerville and set the community straight.

I saw him at waffle house saturday morning, must be nice to show up for your prison sentence whenever you feel like it. If it would have been any real hard working person and not a crook we would have been taken in right after the trial.

If there was a law against being an openly gay firefighter with pictures of your junk posted all over craigslist for the world to see, I guess you would be serving a life sentence.
