Do away with WASH court, don't waste the time or money. If they want to be stupid then they can sit in the slammer and wait till the court gets around to hearing how stupid they were on the weekend. they should have another charge just for being an idiot.

H.E.T. ... they do "sit in the slammer."

Here's a good explanation of W.A.S.H.

Alleged. key word here folks. Who knows what happened before po po arrived, he could have been defending himself.
Pakadeva 3/22/2014 5:15:41 PM Report

Defending himself by slamming a woman to the ground? From the other male maybe, but, slamming the female to the ground is not justifiable.
blackspruce 3/22/2014 6:37:03 PM Report

well guys you know his name and were he lives help him understand that his actions are not acceptable. When I was younger the police and a few of good old boys would have taught him a few manners. A piece of trash that could hurt a lady deserves no respect or sympathy. And any one who owns a business remember his name he does not deserve the right to work with respectable people. MAKE his USELESS life HELL

Yes yes.. If you have been watching CNN and its coverage of the missing Boeing 777. you will surely see that The NEWS and THE TRUTH have absolutely nothing in common when it comes to reporting .
Its incredible that CNN is still on the air.. Such a tragic accident with so many victims turned in to an absolute circus. Not reporting but making it up..
