The court sessions are open to the public, so why would I wait to report what was said. Also, IRead More can't think of any media organizations that would wait until the end of a trial to report what was said.

Thank you for keeping us updated on the details of the trial. Many people can't attend but areRead More extremely interested in knowing what is going on throughout this case.

Kristal, is it possible for you to get a copy of the video? I think everyone would be interested inRead More seeing it. Thanks for the trial update and I look for more of this sad incident for my comic relief. So far, it truly sounds like a group of idiological zeolots created a mess from themselves that is going to cost the citizens of Cherokee county a small fortune for the investigation, trial, incarceration (let's hope), and civil discourse. Way to go Tea-Party and Charter people...By the WAY, you can GO somewhere else...maybe Alabama or Mississippi.

I agree with you....but again whether it's 71% or 78%, that's still "not good,Read More Daniel-sun".....Just FYI. I misspoke about the 71%. I was actually talking about Cherokee high school, not the board...so there, are we happy? See....I do take accountability for my mistake. Now....can i have a trophy just because participated?

I'm so sick of bleeding hearts thinking that prison is good enough for these psychos! I just do notRead More understand the mentality that if we, as a society, condone the death penalty that we are somehow barbaric, sick or vengeful. What is wrong with you??? Do you really think it makes us a better society for continuing to support people like this killer for the rest of their lives? Do you understand how much money that costs our country EVERY DAY? I understand that perhaps you feel that there are some innocent people sitting in prison right now and, for those few, we need to be cautious in exacting final justice. However, this psycho admitted that he did it...described it in detail...he is guilty...there is no doubt about that. Furthermore, there is NO...let me repeat that...NO help for him. There is no amount of rehabilitation, no drug, no shock therapy, no surgery, no magic drink...NOTHING...that will help him or change him. I have worked in a correctional setting for many years...with some of the worst criminals in history...(who, by the way, have since been executed)...I have seen them on a daily basis, talked to them, listened to them, watched their daily actions. Trust me when I tell you, there is NOTHING that will change them and I have not lost one second of sleep over their executions...in fact, the opposite is true...I sleep better knowing they are GONE...gone permanently...not just 'put away' for a while. I understand that you think you are being compassionate...you are not. It is a service to society, in soooo many ways, to be rid of them. THEY are the true animals...let me take that back...they aren't even animals...I have two dogs...they have never hurt anyone...I value their lives more than any one of these sick individuals. I can't call them people, I can't call them animals...both are above what they are. There really is no name for it...but I will assure you...they have NO place in society...even in an incarcerated society. Judge me if you will...call me harsh if you must...my opinion comes from seeing and knowing...and you can take my statements how ever you wish...but I know what I know...and you can take that to the bank.

What makes us better then this murderer is he gets a fair and open to public trial. He has the rightRead More to question his accusers and 12 unknown people have to agree before he is found guilty. He also is issued a lawyer if he can not afford one. No vengeance, Justice

Maybe running a red light?
strange days April 21, 2014 at 02:57 pm
you know what i hate. "charged with DUI" So you just stopped a random car to makeRead More sure they werent drinking and driving? They weren't weaving, werent speeding, had valid registration, and license, didnt run a red light. Just DUI. Also, for all we know they blew under the legal limit. Little known fact. Cherokee county gives out alot of "DUI/DUI less safe" If you are charged with DUI they will throw DUI less safe on the indictment for just in case. DUI less safe means that you blew under .08 but the officer felt you shouldnt be driving. So if you have a cop trying to meet quota "which canton city, and cherokee county BOTH HAVE" of course DUI,DUI less safe will be throw out at everyone.

strange days......... Just be sure your tag light is in working order, because if your tag light isRead More out that is probable cause for an officer to "go fishing" and see what he/she can catch. Clearly a non functional tag light is evidence of unsafe driving........LOL

Marijuana is everywhere. I was shocked to learn this scumbag is a teacher of children at a schoolRead More called Sandy Creek.

Oh and wHen the revenue collection officer asks to search your. Vehicle , " I don't consent toRead More searches " is what you need to practice saying . If you have something obviously illegal in plain sight they can seach. Otherwise you have to give Them permission. Which they need or they wouldn't be ASKING. They'd be telling you they're gonna search . When you refuse them permission they will huff and puff and threaten to call in the drug dog. Blah blah.blah Bring it on steroid head . Then you say "am I under arrest or am I free to go?".
Pam Hamburg April 24, 2014 at 09:28 am
userbronco, you are 110% right. They have NO right to search your vehicle. Of course, they areRead More allowed to peer through the glass to see what they can see, but without a suspicion or proof, they have no right searching your glove compartment, trunk, etc. Yes, say 'am I being detained or am I free to go'? Also, don't roll your window down all the way...you don't have to. About 4 or 5 inches suffices. Stand firm with that one. Be polite, but be firm. Be quiet except when asked a question, then use good judgment in answering. Keep saying 'am I being detained or am I free to go'? Holding court on the side of the road is not a good idea. If they persist in asking you if they can search your vehicle, politely tell them they will have to get a warrant. At all times, be courteous, but FIRM. Know your rights!

It's a touchy situation. You want to be as unrememberable as possible to the cop. So when orRead More if you go to court all he wilremember is what he reads in his notebook. That you can request to see by by the way You want to be unrememberable , don't say anything, unless they ask you a question , then use short answers , yes or no will usually suffice, be polite but don't say "sir" a thousand times. I don't say it at all. Make it look like your kissing up . I personally treat cops like I would treat a rattlesnake 96% of the people who are bitten by a rattlesnake are harassing the snake at the time Keep an eye out for them. And don't harass them. You WILL lose any contest with a cop. Even if it's a ego contest on the side of the road . Extra cops are only seconds away and they will beat you up or kill you in a flash if you tick em off Plenty if dash cam and cell phone video to prove it They are kinda like dogs, some are really smart, some are really dumb, but all of em are dangerous in groups or if they feel threatened or if they sense fear in you. Or if they think their getting an easy meal

Lock em up. Throw away the key - we can't allow gang members to terrorize the community.

Do you know the difference between us and Scandinavia/Iceland? I would say, but I would be called aRead More racist.
Scott Donald April 14, 2014 at 11:29 am
You're absolutely right: Scandanavia has much stronger gun restrictions than we do, and they haveRead More much less violent crime. Couldn't agree with you more.
