Rants & Raves

Comments from readers.

TO ALL THE PEOPLE who lived in the trailer park on Deans Bridge Road: You left a bunch of cats and dogs to fend for themselves and put the burden on an old man who can barely feed himself.

SCOTT DEAN’S sentence of 20 years is extreme. Rapists get less of a sentence and are not convicted for possible future rapes. Dean needs to appeal. Serving up to 10 years seems more reasonable. The media shouldn’t attack his wife. How do you think she feels?

RAVES TO THE DEAN family. May God bless them. We all do wrong. I’m so glad God will have the final say. My heart is heavy tonight as I think about Mr. Dean. I don’t know what happened. Keep praying.

IF ALL PEOPLE conducted themselves properly, there wouldn’t be any difference in race, color or creed.

A RAVE TO Jim Blan­chard for protecting our children. I hope others take note.

THE COMING SUMMER in Augusta is going to be horrible. Is anyone planning ahead?

WHY DO JURIES keep putting murderers and other criminals back on the street with a not-guilty verdict? How is Augusta (or any other city) ever going to be a safe place to live? Do we need better prosecutors or should we scratch the jury system because of blind incompetence?

A RANT TO THE person who has a concession stand in the street in the Glenn Hills area. That is an accident waiting to happen.

THIS IS FOR ALL the greeters at the Walmart on Deans Bridge Road. Thank you for making me feel welcome each time I came into your store, and thank you for all the times you found a wheelchair for me to use while I shop. I will miss all of you very much. I am sorry to see you go.

A RAVE TO Doctors Hospital for the staff, doctors and personnel there. This was my first and, hopefully, my last cancer treatments I ever have to experience. These people went out of their way to explain each procedure. Thanks to you, Dr. Hall, and my two techs, Don and Miles.

SOMEONE BEATS his girlfriend enough to send her to the hospital. He’s not in jail?

I AM A POOR person. I am legally crazy in the eyes of the law, but I know better than to shoot a policeman.

"We all do wrong" is no

"We all do wrong" is no excuse, ever, for child molestation and incest.

I just don't understand how anyone could ever excuse or justify that.

And it is just astounding to me why people think he shouldn't serve a long sentence. He committed incest. How that child must have suffered.

corgimom, people defending

corgimom, people defending Deen don't think they feel it's an excuse or justification because they don't think Deen is guilty. Although he has been found guilty in a court of law and sentences, they don't believe he did what he's been accused of.

I have to ask the same question myopinion3, "plan for what this summer? It's going to be HOT, what more do we need to know.

Planning might mean the cost

Planning might mean the cost of energy. A long hot summer?
Gasoline is predicted to go up another 58 cents a gal, or so I heard someplace.

Anyhow, what do I know..I can't even predict what will happen today.

Rant #7. Have you ever sat

Rant #7. Have you ever sat through a trial and heard the words coming from the mouths of defense attorneys. The person charged is just an innocent, put upon, poor, mistreated person who is not to blame for what he did. In other words, statements that have never been near the truth.
What are juries to believe? They aren't allowed access to pertinent information and the defense attorneys laugh all the way to their bank..

Raver #9 about Walmart

Raver #9 about Walmart greeters... Perhaps you're misinformed? Greeters aren't going anywhere for the most part, they just won't be working the doors by the time 3rd shift starts. The times you and most people shop there you'll still have your beloved greeters.

Another long, hot (hazy & humid) summer in Georgia. Who wouldn't totally not be prepared for that?

Waiting to see if the Occupy Random Spaces/OWS crowd can stand the heat like they did the cold....

well with scott dean just how
Unpublished

well with scott dean just how much does its take a girl said he did it then said she lied to just get money and then little sister jumps in with her story....from what i gather it was he said she said....and one accuser recanted and admitted she lied seems it was a very weak case altogether and even one juror has already admitted she thought he was innocent but caved in to pressure from the other jurors ...he was convicted not on this case but purely for reason outside the court room such as the rash of child abuse cases

The judge was easy on Dean.

The judge was easy on Dean. He could have been given 20 yrs for each count, which would have been 40 yrs.

Some feel that way happy but let me ask you....if your son, husband, or father, was in the same shoes as Mr. Dean, would you still feel the same way?

I don't defend anyone who has

I don't defend anyone who has injured a child physically or mentally. for your info, my daddy felt the same as I do on that subject. He never did anything to harm me. My husband won't harm a child either. I know him like I know the back of my hand. My whole family knows that I will not defend anyone who harms a child, the elderly, and animals. As for dui, they all know not to call me if they are caught dui.
