    Why is a three time joker allowed on a work detail? If this clown was in MS that third strike would have given him LIFE IN PRISON!!! I just hope that one day TN will take a page out of MS’s play book and start using the three strike law on non-violent felonies as well as the violent felonies! Come on law makers lets do something that makes sense

      Do you wonder why people are leaving Memphis and taking their money and businesses. I did.

        No one can blame you- I live in Reno NV- beautiful and we don’t have a lot of crime- very little blacks too.

    Didn’t an offender sentenced to the same type “punishment” walk away from Lichterman Nature Center a month or tow ago?

  • Joe Williams says:

    5’7″ and 155 lbs??? He is not big enough to be a bad guy…

  • Don Holt says:

    I sure did wasted my time trying to find a way to ease the crime in Memphis.

    Thanks WREG
