Jim Ireton's proposal #2 to Divide the City into 5 Districts with 2 at large members is the future look of Salisbury and finally a way to end the oppression the rest of us City Residents have been under from the Camden Neighborhood. This will finally bring civility and progress back to our great City. Great Job Jim

It has been a long day of dealing with people complaining about Joel even being out on the streets after being charged with armed robbery and blaming Dan Powell and myself Kristy Hiickman for the problem. Joel had no prior Criminal History on file as an Adult when the handgun robbery charge was brought up and as much as we may dislike the process a 16 year old with no prior Adult record is going to be given a second chance to correct his behavior. The real problem lies in what is best to make that happen? Our Prisons are overpopulated to begin with and we simple cannot send every person to jail for every crime, and the courts will look at a suspects age in making the determination on best course of action.
Ultimately it is not Dan Powell, Kristy Hickman or any of the attorney's at fault, the blame remains on one person and that is Joel Sutton himself who made the decisions that have led him down this path. Instead of pointing fingers because we are pro Hickman or Powell we should really be saddened that a life was taken and three young men are being charged in this crime who had their entire lives in front of them, and for many the only view they will see now comes with a set of bars in front of it.
