  1. Oh My Goodness ! Who had a “Come To Jesus Meeting” with Jared Williams ??!! No Plea Deals !! Congratulations, Sir. Does this mean we are finally going to see some felons in jail where they belong ? I am sincerely hoping that this trend continues, and the plea deals from your past, are now behind us.

The widespread cultural acceptance of violence as a first level conflict resolution tool is the underlying issue. Until the public comes to grips with that fact, we will continue to see more of it.

  3. What the heck has happened to Jared Williams?! He’s becoming almost Natalie Paine-like! Charging felons for having a gun??? Unheard of! Has somebody notified George Soros? Jared is straying from the path.
