Smart enough to know he got what he deserved, dumb enough to do it in the first place.

They walk among us.

What it really boils down to is.........someone was trying to survive, probably looking for something to steal, then to sell for food.

It's going to get worse, especially in El Dorado, where everyone is loosing their job(s)

I'm not surprise the crime rate hasn't skyrocketed yet around El Dorado.

Default What The Hel.....

Trying to survive!!!!!????

Some moron beats a 93 year old man with a soda can 50 times and HE'S just trying to survive. I hope the SOB is removed from the gene pool permanently.

He could survive by getting a job, or cutting back on his crack habit. Normal people don't do these kinds of things. They are not to be tolerated in society. In my home town we have churches and outreach centers that will simply give you food if you need it or pay the rent while someone gets on their feet. This is the kind of guy that gives actual bags of scum a bad name.

Wish I could be on his jury!

Yeah, people in your area are more fortunate. You better not move to El Dorado. The organization and churches give out to whom they want. If they don't like you.....well.....too bad. And from the way you talk nobody will like you.

Sadly a smillar thing happend in 2003 to man here in the Fayetteville area.

An elderly man Pat Garder who happens to have been a family friend (I had known him my whole life), was beat to death with a hammer in 2003.

The guy that murdered him is surving life without parole in ADC. He should have gotten the death penalty.


"Washington County District Prosecutor Terry Jones had contemplated it in
the case last year of Jeffery Grinder, who is serving a life sentence
without the possibility of parole after pleading guilty to robbing and
bludgeoning to death 77-year-old Pat Gardner of rural Springdale on Sept.
2, 2003."

Sweetie, you need to find a way out of south Arkansas altogether - I can't find a single positive thing you've had to say. Texas is just over the border...so is Louisiana. Perhaps you would find yourself more at home in one of those locales...your distaste for Arkansas is apparent. Hope you can find a way out - not every place is for everyone, and this obviously isn't for you.

It's a lot easier said than done. As I posted for someone else.
1. It takes money to move.

2. It takes a job to make/have money.

I've been trying, trust me. If I could move, I would have done so already.

Maybe you could help set up a fund to raise money for my cause?

Duh, what part of I am trying to survive do you not understand?

And do you see me crying.

I'm currently doing something about it by posting on here.
