Capt. Rick Gaston is so guilty! He needs to be put in jail just as much as Ryan Till!

Wes Till is a good man and should not be in prison like his son should. He has done way more good than bad. weigh it out yourself.

It seems to me that Mississippi is confirming it's sterotype of corruption. look at everything that is going on in the local goverenments, Gautier, Moss Point, ocean Springs, Harrison County Jail and on a federal level all the indictments surrounding the Dicky Scruggs case. What does it take to lean up politics in this state? mississippi will never move forward with people like that holding us back!

I meant "clean Up politics. There is still to much of the "good ole boy" network in place. Ever notice that MS is #1 in things we don't want to be #1 in and #50 in things we want to be #1 in? This is such a great state with so much potential. We just need real LEADERSHIP!

Bad is Bad. Good is Good. Illegal is ILLEGAL and punishable by law. You cannot put a thumb on the scale and expect a JUST reading.

I agree. it doesn't matter how "good" someone is. That's always the first thing one hears.."He was sucha good person, never imagined he's be a mass murder..". Illegal is illegal, and the law should apply the same to everyone!

Yea, that's like saying he's a "christian man" to suggest that he wouldn't do anything wrong. Any time someone starts a conversation like that I am suspicious. If he is "good" or "christian" or whatever it should be obvious by his deeds and not have to be clarified by some disclaimer to his deeds.
