Why call Chuck a piece of crap?
This is someone’s son and he has family that will view these
comments. Which I am sure they are heartbroken. Regardless of his situation, addiction is an illness and horrible disease. So why kick a man down father. One should be offering prayers in hopes that one day he over comes this illness. To his family he’s still a love one.
Have you no shame? You should be offering prayers .
This has be be devastating to them. It’s a sad situation!

Sending prayers to his family and to chuck !!

This comment is primarily in response to comment #1 but good food for thought to anyone whom reads these comments concerning Chuck Marcum. Chuck is not a piece of anything. I have known Chuck all of his life as well as his sisters, his mom and his Dad. Chuck is an addict. Addiction is a sickness. Chuck is also someone's son, brother, father etc. Can you imagine the pain that you have inflicted on his family by calling him names? Of course you don't really care because you can hide behind your keyboard and never have to face Chuck or any of his family. Now you have this old man wondering what your addiction is. Is; it Mtn. Dew, Food, sex, cigarettes, alcohol or even drugs? You are addicted to something. Think about that then call yourself what you called Chuck. You may not have transported or sold drugs and I suppose it is possible that you are not a thief but I can tell you that you are not a person who respects others and don't mind hurting their feelings. Chuck is loved, just like I hope you are.

I believe the picture of the cooler and stuff was a separate bust. I saw it in a post before Chuck was arrested. Chuck is my brother and I hope this has or will teach him a powerful lesson.

I hope the Sheriff of Wayne County continues to catch those whom peddle drugs. It doesn't appear that Lawrence County is doing all that great. Both of the men live in Louisa, why were they not arrested over there?
