    Smith turned himself in and will be going back to prison. Good job, Jason Bridges!

    This is what we call “grandstanding.”

    Men are driven in their flesh by three things – money, sex and power, not necessarily in that order. Which one or more of the three do you think drive’s this Sheriff candidate? Looks like power. Too much power in the mind of the wrong person excercised for the wrong reasons is a very dangerous thing.

    Kerss is no better.

    Neither one of them are really suitable.

      So this is “grandstanding”? Doing the jobs they (Kerss and Bridges) were elected to do is “grandstanding”? Would you rather have someone like me as sheriff? I know nothing about law enforcement so I would not get much done at all so there would be no grandstanding from me. (in your eyes)
      I have raised kids and now help with grand kids too. I applaud all efforts from the county and the city law enforcement to help clean up the streets.
      So please, keep up the grandstanding.
