    Re: another Laurel councilman goes to jail

    I've run ino this guy during the course of my work, and he's an arrogant SOB, and ignorant as to how his job related to mine, even though we were supposed to be working together.

    This news doesn't surprise me.
    I am happier with my brain. Definitely.

    Laurel sadly enough, has a city government that makes Hattiesburg's administration, even under DuPree, look good.

    heh heh heh. It ain't nutin' new, Hub.
    I grew up in Laurel. We got transfered there from Louisville, KY in '51 or '52.
    It was a mess of scoundrels then and I'm sure it will still be so in perpetuity.

    Laurel, Hattiesburg, Timbuktu...it doesn't matter where - it's just wrong for a grown man to use a young girl like that - I hope they lock him up and throw away the key. He deserves whatever the courts can dish out!!!

    Re: another Laurel councilman goes to jail

    You're absolutely right QM, and sorry if my post came off as making light of the situation. Having been around a few DHS cases like this, I just get sick to my stomach thinking of these type things. I have no sympathy for him.

    QM,

    Forgive me.
    I didn't intend to seem to be defending or condoning Mr. Jones or his actions.
    Quite the contrary. I find it appalling.
    If that were my daughter, no type of punishment or amount of punishment would ever be sufficient or satisfactory. Our children, all children, are the most precious facets of our lives.
    My appologies for seeming to make jest of that situation.

    Re: another Laurel councilman goes to jail

    I agree with all of you. Nobody should be messing around like that with a 13-year old girl, especially a grown man that's old enough to know better.

    Re: another Laurel councilman goes to jail

    Ted and Barrister - no offense taken. I believe we are all on the same page with this issue. If this were my daughter, I believe I would have a difficult time letting the courts handle it, too. It will be interesting to see what happens at the bond hearing on Friday. I hope he doesn't get bond. And I also hope he eventually is put on the sex offender list and has to register EVERYWHERE HE GOES!!!

    Re: another Laurel councilman goes to jail

    What is with the Ward 7 councilmen?!?! This is the ward Thaddeus Edmonson was from.

    I never liked the looks of this guy...just a bad vibe he gives off and I've only seen him on television.

    How awful of him to take advantage of a 13-year-old...I hope he gets whats coming to him.

    This is so very, very sad. I have to wonder if with the sexualization of our society, the girl even really knew (at the time) what happened to her is wrong?

    I mean, I taught seventh and eighth graders who thought nothing of going out with/having sex with seniors in high school. The line for our children is blurry and confusing and many of them don't have adults there to help them navigate the dangers.

    Like fuzzis said, usually, at that young an age, a lot of kids don't know that what she or the guy is doing is wrong. It's when they get older that they realize they were taken advantage of and what the guy did was criminal.

    It's good that the statute of limitations is as long as it is for that crime. It isn't the first time that this situation has played out like this.
    I am happier with my brain. Definitely.

    Dateline NBC Exposes Child Predators on Nov. 4 - Watch it.

    If you are a parent of a teen, or know parents of teens, make sure and watch Dateline Friday Nov. 4 - the show will be about internet predators soliciting children online. The internet is the predator's new playground - AND, they are out there, even in South Mississippi

    I suppose this is a bit of a threadjack, but why *wouldn't* they be "even in South Mississippi"? During the hurricane, my friends were talking about looking up their neighborhood on the site where you can see registered sex offenders and being absolutely SHOCKED that there were in fact sex offenders in their neighborhood.

    With statistics saying that 1 in 3 women and 1 in 6 men will be sexually assaulted by the time they're 18, is it really surprising?

    Thinking that predators aren't around us leaves children vulnerable.

    Angry Re: another Laurel councilman goes to jail

    It is a down right shame that children are becoming the target of un-human beings that can install a feeling of fear, and shame to hide thier disgusting acts. There is no punishment harsh enough to correct what these people do to thier victims. I just hope that the justice system does not let the victim or her family down in this case. This is one jury I would love to serve on.
