  1. Shame on Judge Stone and DA Williams for releasing a repeat offender with no physical consequences for his crimes. His ex-wife should get a pistol and a carry permit to ensure her and her child’s safety. Per the SCOTUS, law enforcement personnel have no duty to protect us. Apparently the court system does not either.

    If we can post thousands of armed TSA and law enforcement agents in airports, why can’t there be an armed law enforcement officer at the entrance of every school? Children not worth the expense?

  2. So DA Jared Williams says probation given by a judge was an appropriate outcome for a vicious domestic attack at an elementary school! How can this be a reasonable conclusion? It is little wonder our community experiences so much domestic abuse cases and children being traumatized as long as these are considered misdemeanors with probation. The $623 may cover the cost of the broken glass in the school, but it will never repair the trauma suffered by children, including his own daughter, and staff in that school that day.

  3. More “Top Notch” work by Jared. Hey, y’all elected him. You get what you elect. Judge Stone, you did not have to accept that watered-down “Jared Deal”. Judge Wright, you have lost your way. Probation ?? We are not talking about a choir boy here.

  4. This is just another example of what is wrong in our country. As long as politicians like this DA are elected, this is going to continue to happen. When we the voters, elect people who are allowed to make and carry out their own laws, then we cannot expect anything different. I agree, we have not seen the last of this man.
