    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
