A Comment Worthy Of a Post

This commenter has asked some very good questions so I thought I'd bring it out to a post because a lot of visitors do not read the comments under the articles. Hopefully it will gain more attention here, and maybe it will bring some answers.

As a registered Democrat it pains me to even think about voting for the "other" candidate. In 30 years I've only done this once.

After searching and reading about the Candidates in the State's Attorney race this is bothering me the most. I"ve talked with many fellow Democrats and I find that I'm not alone in my concerns.

Mr. Todd you've eloquently answered citizens concerns over the cases mentioned in the original post. Why are you not answering other questions especially about this Clarence Jackson case? Why are you letting other's speak for you?

It's no big secret about the crimes that this criminal has comitted and I'm sure that there are more crimes that he has done that we all don't know about because he didn't get caught.

I just don't understand why Mr. Todd didn't put him away for a very long time in September (someone mentioned 30 yrs.) when he had the opportunity to do so.

As a resident of Worcester County it concerns me that this person will be back on our streets and in our community more than likely in about 1 year.

This person is a repeat offender as is evidenced by his criminal record. Whose home will he invade and steal from next? Where will his next fire be set? Who will be his next vitim of his terror?

The disturbing part of all of this is that my candidate let this happen and then refuses to answer legitimate questions about it. The people he has chosen to speak for him have no credibility and this is even more disturbing.

Who should I vote for as State's Attorney for Worcester County come November?

I was getting ready to comment on another post, hit refresh and Ta Da this post appears which is also appropriate for my comment.

This is in regards to Mr Oglesby's stet concerning attempted murder charges against a defendant. It's clear to me, the reasoning behind this decision. No doubt the attempted murder charges would have been hard to prove so Mr Oglesby took the opportunity to prosecute the defendant on the easier to prove charges. It's apparent that Mr. Oglesby saw that the defendant was prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law for these charges. One thing is certain the defendant was given an extraordinary prison sentence of 30 plus years.

Mr. Todd's office let Ballard off when he's committed several years of crime and each one progressively getting worse. Like the many years of theft, burglary and then felony burglary. Did you really think Mr. Todd that Ballard would give up his life of crime in less than 1 year in jail?

He got worse. What will he do next time?

So what is the deal with tis Clarence Jackson case and why is Todd hiding from it?

I'm wondering if the victims of Ballard's and Jackson's cimes are part of the face Book 350 victims of crime supporting Joel Todd's re-election. My guess is that they aren't. Maybe Oglesby should contact them!

I've seen the word progression mentioned a couple of times on this site.

Since alot of parents of these career criminals aren't teaching them right from wrong the only solution I can see if for those who can to be proactive and acting in advance to stop the violence.
2 or 3 arrests for a criminal act is enough. The person obviously hasn't any respect for the laws of the land. There shouldn't be any deals and they should be put away for the maximum. If nothing else maybe it would prevent them from having one or two more children who themselves will be criminals.
Ballard is an example of someone who's been in and out of prison and could care less about continuing to break laws. Now he's taken someone's life. It's so unfair to law biding citizens that we have to even worry about this. The police do their jobs and arrest these people then they are back out.

I just looked up the criminal record of Clarence Jackson in both Worcester and Wicomico counties. He's proven time and time again that he can't be rehabilitated. At 30 something years of age he's finished, DONE with no chance for a future as far as being able to provide for himself. No employer is ever going to hire him with his record. He belongs in prison, warehoused with the rest of his kind for as long as possible but that will not happen until we read about him killing some old lady for the $5 in her purse. Prison is the best place the only place for someone like him.

Maybe the parent(s) of these criminals should start serving time for not teaching their criminal kids right from wrong.

6:38 is right. These career criminals have no respect for the law. The don't care about breaking it, harming, or killing innocent victims. Somehow this does not resonate with the State because time and time again they are set free to do more crimes and they don't end up in the warehouse that 2:29 talks about.

I was once told that it's cheaper to let the career criminals back out on the street than keeping them in prison. Cheaper for whom? There is something seriously wrong with that picture.

I feel sorry for the police who work so hard to put these career criminals behind bars only to see them back out on the streets. I can't imagine how frustrating that must be.

There is a definate disconnect between those who are enforcing the laws and thos who are supposed to put people behind bars.

Like I said go sit in on hearings and trials for a day.

Why doesn't Mr. Oglesby answer some questions? Why did he stiff Thom Gulyas a loyal supporter? Why did he move away? Why did he defend drug dealers and attempted murders?
Tell us about Stephen Russell? What about Jerrell Devon Lee? What about Jamie Hackett? Got an answer for that one?
