Talkback 3: Melton Plea

Hi, my name is Tiffany and I wanted to comment on the mayor's decision to plea guilty. I feel what's being done to him in regards to this particular situation is unfair; however it is the law. On the other hand a former student from Hinds in Raymond, not only had a gun on campus he "accidentally shot," someone. No one was hurt if or when Frank had a gun on campus and everyone was making a big deal out of it. If the A.G. and Mrs. Peterson think this is such and important issue; why hasn't the young man from Hinds been arrested or charged with a felony?

If you're doing your job and trying to protect rights and the people then arrest the man who shot someone on the Hinds campus this week. If they are going to pick who should and shouldn't be prosecuted then that's not real justice and Mrs. Peterson is and was in fact being "messy" when it came down to Mr. Melton. Although the Mayor has done some rather excessive things in the past this particular incident was very unfair. Also since the Mayor has been occupied with the trials the crime in Jackson has gone up. There was a time only a few months ago when I could remember hearing people say, " Frank's out doing road blocks and kicking in doors be careful," that's because they were acknowledging that this man was in fact doing his job and he was not playing around. This is pretty much all I wanted to comment about thank you for your time.
