Turner

Jason Terrance Turner, 39, who lived with his mother in a home in the 5300 block of Windmill Parkway, Evans, was arrested late Sunday after a tip from someone who recognized him from surveillance footage at the Circle K, 4649 Washington Road, said Columbia County sheriff's Capt. Steve Morris.

In that robbery, a man entered the store early Saturday morning and asked the clerk a question. He returned about 20 minutes later with a white T-shirt over his head, told the clerk he had a gun, went behind the counter and grabbed a small amount of cash from the register, according to the incident report.

Turner previously served nine years in prison of a 12-year sentence for a 1998 carjacking and robbery in Richmond County.

He later was convicted for a 2008 Columbia County convenience store robbery by sudden snatch, and was released April 27 after serving less than two years in prison, according to the Georgia Department of Corrections Web site and the Augusta District Attorney's office.

Strike three. It appears Mr.

Strike three. It appears Mr. Turner can't live among the civilized.

If guilty, he should be in the neighborhood of 69 years old when he returns to society. Another drain on the taxpayer.

He made it less than two

He made it less than two months before re-offending. Why was he even out with 2 forcible felony convictions under his belt? (GE DOC website) Some ADA must have made him one heck of a deal.

Unpublished

He probably robbed because convicted felons get no love. Not excusing his behavior by any means but what do prisons and jails do to rehabilitate their tenants? Exactly NOTHING.

Just as the other guy who killed a child while DUI, he does not deserve to live amongst the civilized.

By causing the worker to fear

By causing the worker to fear for his life while he was only trying, honestly, to work hard for a better life for himself and his family. Was trying to get a better car than the one he had during the carjacking and armed robbery, too. Or are you being facetious, copperhead?????

iLove, you can't rehabilitate

iLove, you can't rehabilitate the unwilling. What exactly has this vermin done while he's out if prison? Does he have a high school diploma? If not, why didn't he get his GED? If so, why doesn't he learn a trade? There are plenty of jobs available, if you are willing to work and prove yourself. He needs to be locked up, never to see the light of day, before he graduates to murder.

Del 1967, i don't think you

Del 1967, i don't think you will be seeing local staffing in Richmond County advertising in the job classified section "Ciean Background Is A Must" no more. Any employer or local staffing requesting an applicants must have a clean background check to apply for an opening job postition, a charge of discrimination Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VII) can be submitted. So, Del 1967, if you see temp agencies advertising Clean Blackground Check Is A Must,again. Please write to U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission
100 Alabama Street,SW, Suite 4R30 Atlanta, GA 30303 Attn: Director Bernice Kimbrough. Ex- offender discrimination must be stop .
