Tell me why a person that does not live in Jefferson City should pay the sales tax and support a fire service that they don't even use. Just another reason why I don't live in Jefferson City and do my business in Columbia or Fulton. And you people in Jefferson City that support the sales tax either have more money than sense or just plain dumb.
This is typical of the attorneys and judges in the Jeff City area. Afraid to take on a case where they have to work to get the ruling rthey want. There was no work to this case. It was premeditated muder and she even confirmed that by her confession. but by Pat Joyce's standard the statement of "Do the right thing" is inadmissable. You still have a first degree murder admitted to in front of what is supposed to be a judge.but the charge is dropped down to second degree with a plea bargain.Agreed to by the prosecutor. Just a bunch of legals afraid to look bad to anyone. except those that they are working for. I think most people know what to do on the next election of the prosecutor and judge.
It is no wonder that JC schools are wanting more money all the time. With a salary like that. I don't believe anyone on any school board is worth that. Next time you need money try cutting some of the high salaries.
Look at the promises Cedar City got by Jefferson City in 1989 when they were annexed. Not one promise was fulfilled by Jefferson City. Then 1993 and the flood came and after the waters went down Jefferson City evacuated the town and used the area for themselves and turned it into a park.What benefits did the people of Cedar City get? None.
@Rob. And I drive the roads in Jefferson City everyday.
@Rob. The new sales tax is not being used by the city government but by the Chamber of Commerce for their pet projects. I didn't see any mention of it being used for roads and Jefferson City has a lot of roads that need repair.
I agree with Festus. This is nothing but a takeover by Jefferson City to gain more revenue by the crooked political people in office. I guess Rob will also vote for the sales tax coming up. Another ripoff of the citizens by the city.
This guy has already had his 15 minutes of fame. Why does he have to do it again and go thru his story again? I thought it was pretty boring the first. If he had stayed in his room he wouldn't have been taken into custody . So no more of his ordeal. He brought on himself.
Her being put on administrative leave is the first step to being promoted
