Speak Out

The Marshall Democrat-News invites readers to share their views and questions on any issue. Open discussions are often useful and enlightening. Criticism is acceptable as an important part of public conversations, but we expect everyone to treat others with respect. Experience suggests it is best not to post comments while angry. We reserve the right to delete comments that we think include personal attacks, are disrespectful, threatening, obscene or in other ways objectionable. Anyone who repeatedly violates this policy will be banned from participating in our forums.

Aaaaaand once you're the sheriff you can do whatever you want.

For example: WALLY GEORGE STOLE a crap-load of money from the county, ADMITTED IT, and was CONVICTED; but he won't do a single day in jail. Worst case scenario he'll get 3years unsupervised probation.

Police hide, alter and destroy evidence of their own crimes all the time. It's not surprising to me that there is so little evidence against the police when the police are in-charge of collecting and storing evidence.

It's the real reason every major department in the country has a massive backlog of rape kits that have never been tested. A lot of those are going to implicate current and former police officers who expect to get away Scott free. (And have)
