County Government Opinion / Re: Should Judge's Impose Stiffer Bond's?

its not just the local housing that is is that way at a state and fedral level also. i have read(and dont know if it is true) that we house more prisoners than any other country.locking people up for longer times for petty crimes and drug violations is not going to make things better. the idea behind prision was punishment and rehabilitaion now we just try to use it to make bad people go away. besides that we have to have crime if we didnt then what would L.E. protect you from? if one of my childeren should be hurt by one of these types, i wont be blaming L.E. for not doing their job ill just do mine. where i come from you dont call L.E. to come and handle these types of problems you handle them your self.

...and you will end up in there with them. Believe me, I whole heartily believe in "vigilantly justice", but it's not worth losing you're freedom over. That's why we have LE. To keep criminals off the streets. What would you suggest we do to them? Just continue to slap them on the wrist, continue to let them break the law, steal our property, cook and sell meth? Someone has to do something, so I would love to hear what plan you would have other than sending them to prison.

I understand there is housing issues. I am in support of a LE tax. However, we still have to keep these folks off the street. If one of your kids gets hurt by one of these junkies, thieves, dealers...etc...I'll bet you wish they had set a stiffer bond and locked these punks up. We will always have "overcrowding" issues. If you build a new jail tomorrow, the next day it will be "overcrowded".  There is no execuses for slapping these hibitual offenders on the wrist. No execuses.

We have watched this guy come in and out of jail so many times it ain't funny! He got away with murder in 2000, under JT Roberts, of course. He killed again and was convicted, served a slap in the face to the Routh family sentence,  got out and has been arrested how many times? again?? He got nailed to the floor and his ass beat, not even close to what he deserved. This is a sick individual who needs to be locked up and given the needle.

By the way, the murder he got away with in 2000, was Travis Smith, my only brother. I hope this dude rots in hell!

Voting across party lines only pulls votes away from the other party. Now, if we only had a democratic primary and only one republican, then yeah, have it! But when you have 3 republican candidates on the primary, you have to vote who you want to win!  I'll guarantee this election will be decided on Aug. 7th.  :th_gen129:

I would definitely not recommend pulling a Democratic ticket to vote against JT. Reason being, this race will be decided in the primary. Whichever Republican candidate wins the primary will be our next Sheriff. I will personally vote for Nick Pappas. He has the experience, but more important to me, he has the "managerial" skills I feel we are lacking. We have 13 road deputies and you're telling me we can only have one on at a time? I believe in Nick, after having several lengthy discussions about what the people are needing from our Sheriff, He never once promised anything that he can't deliver on. He's not part of the "good ol' boy" club. He truly cares about this County, and it's citizens. He is very professional, well spoken and trained. So I would suggest pulling a Republican ticket, and vote for your next sheriff!

As a lifelong Pulaski Co citizen, I see the same people getting arrested time and time again. I see that the Judge's are setting petty bonds allowing the criminals to bond out. Why not set stiffer bonds? For one thing, you will have the bondsman more vested, and if they jump bail on lets say $100K, you can bet your last dollar that the bondsman will find them. Another thing, if they are imposing these petty $20k bonds, these criminals can post that without hesitation, then they are right back out selling, cooking drugs, stealing...etc. I believe we should all lean our Judge's and make sure they are setting stiffer bonds. We put them behind that bench to protect us! They say that they don't want to flood the system with "non violent" offenders. I say they are all "violent" offenders. We don't want thieves and or drug abusers, cookers, or dealers on our streets, just as much as we don't want murderers, molesters, or rapists.  Lean on our judge's! Make sure that they know that they work for us. The police force works hard to catch these criminals, and I feel the Judge's are slapping them in the face when they set a petty bond for these people to bond out! Call them, email them, whatever we need to do to get our point across, needs to be done!

We do have some of our wonderful US Army Soldiers coming to volunteer their valuable time to help us out at the rodeo. I can't express enough gratiitude to them! Although, I would be happier if I could buy them all a cold beer for their efforts!!
