On State Parole, alcohol and drugs present, six kids, tattoo artist. Sweet. I wonder what kind of health insurance this mope has? Oooo, I'll bet it's an Access card, and we the taxpayer be paying for his idiocy. Ain't life grand?!

I have trouble believing the state would issue a license to a 15 year old as a professional tattoo artist. Hunting license? Yes. Driver's license? At least a permit. But tattoo artist? At 15 he may have been experimenting with tattoos, but I seriously doubt he was a licensed professional.

This report says he now has six kids. Initial stories said he has five. Hmmm. I don't think he's going to be happy with one goldfish.

Truth be told and how it differed from the initial news article.

Painter sounds like a decent guy. I'm glad he saw how many friends and family were pulling for him.
Good luck with that goldfish.

You don't need a license to Tattoo, if you operate a shop you need a health certificate and a business license along with Tax id's, anyone can tattoo with out a license or permit goofball.

Exactly...I figure we tax payers are on he hook for at least a quarter of a million dollars because this MORON thought it would be "cool" to own a deadly snake. Once again the idiocracy forcast plays out.

why are comments closed on the guy that beat his g/f and stuffed her with prescription drugs, yet a guy that simply gets bit by his pet, gets drug through this crap on here.
I don't know the man, I don't like snakes, tatoos, drinking, drugs....but his life should be private and this forum should not be a venue for his enemies to take punches at him.

Instead of beating the guy up maybe people should be praying for a recovery. He does have kids that need their father. What he did might not have been the smartest thing but, we all do dumb things at some point in our life. My family will keep Barry and his family in our prayers.
unfair statement

The police gave the information to the PO for the first article, that Barry Painter was intoxicated.

Now they are saying it is because someone told them he might have been drunk. Am I the only one who does not think this statement should not have been made without him being first tested, to see if the information was correst?

Mr painter was keeping his snake at a frend's house and when they went to look for the snake they found drugs. At least that is what they are implying. They are saying that these drugs are Mr. Painter's. It kind of sounds like the police have it in for Barry Painter.

It sure would not be the first time that police have lied in order to build a case. And as far as the drugs go, the police could have easily said they found some and then turned some in. After all they could probably get ahold of some very easily.

I hope the DA's office does not just go by what the police say. They need to look at hard evidence, and also take into consideration that we do have crooked cops who like to build cases and build a name for themselves.

These cops are few and far between, but they do exist.

You took the words right out of my mouth.

"Why does anybody have a cat or a dog? Everybody's different. If everybody was the same, this would be a dull world,"

True statement, but I'll be ****** if I want to pay for someone else's interest in keeping the world turning.

Stacy, Please stop that. There is a chance this could be blown way out of proportion and you are ruining it. I loved the "poll" the PO had regarding this issue and the narrow choices of answers.
