Ricky Locklear was not the man that tried to burn down the town, that was his nephews and their last name was Johnson. Check the record.

Way to go Ricky. First you try to burn down the town and now you're trying to run over everyone.

OMG you are right! I remember that now! Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think they even got any jail time did they?

Quoting Bill:
Preston will reduce it to reckless operation and 6 months from now it will happen again...



Right on Bill! This judge has contributed to the problems of this community as much as the offenders have. When you have offenders saying "I sure hope I get judge Preston", then what does that tell you?
