Ok, ya, that's creepy, but FOUR YEARS? Now i know our justice system is broken. A guy kills a 10 year old girl while driving drunk, and gets 10 years, and this guy gets 4 for just handcuffing himself to a girl?

borg: Sounds like a silly prank that got out of hand.


Not that I don't have friends in Ringglod, but Ima gonna guess you've never been there. Parts of it are nice houses with folks doing well....and other parts are...not like that and define the stereotype of inbred Georgia yokels.

Last time I was up that way my gal and I rode our bikes (motorcycles, we're not gay) there and stopped at a few places close to try to find a) cigars and b) beer.

Stop 1 trying to find cigars: Head shop. OK, not our scene and they had no real cigars. "Are we close to Ringgold?" Oh no, you're not close at all. It's a good 15 minutes away.

Stop 2, some tavern/pub: My gal walks in, sees the usual AB drafts and such, cooler with some Guinness bottles and whatnot, and asks "Do you have any Sweetwater?" (that's a Georgia beer ya know). Bartender chick says "Honey do you just want a glass of water with some sugar in it?"

We still laugh about it. I'm not saying they're bad people but WOOoooOooOoOoo it's a different kind of consciousness up in them parts

jasimo: 100 Watt Walrus: Aces and Eights: There is more to the story. Guy's a creep at best, and a predator at worst.

Aw man, why did you have to go and ruin the thread for all the nitwits in here who don't know how to use Google?

10/4 still seems harsh.


I agree, this guy needs mental help and a few months in jail (probably in a mental hospital, along with 1 - 2 years on probation). Locking him away for 4 years where his only future is back at his Taco Bell job (felons aren't welcome on the job market beyond menial labor, these days) is not going to help rehabilitate him.

Can't say as I do. I've now lived here 27 years, maybe it's time to meet the neighbors.

Thank you for the tip.

Rufus Lee King: RE;Rome

I'll bet you guys weren't there in the seventies to experience the rarefied ambience of the Triple H on Martha Berry Hwy. Or, right across from it, The Pub, featuring the famous "Y'all Hungry Slaw Dog", and the "Subligna Sandwich".


My buddy (often down at the aforementioned Old Havana) used to own the HHH.

He probably told her that he had the key but it was down his pants and he wasn't going to get it.

You do realize that you made yourself sound all douchy?

1) 15 minutes driving, in a rural area could mean over an hour's walk... not everyone has vehicles.

2) I never heard of this "Sweetwater" and you putting down the girl over it, isn't all that great.

So you have the typical "motorcycle for him and her", then you have "cigars", and then the obscure beer that everyone should know about.

Odds are that the bikes are Lazy-boys with wheels, which would make it even more douchy.

So you're riding a fine line between the hipster or the overage yuppy crowd...

Since when did years on probation count as years sentenced?

My thoughts exactly! And don't forget that he started by saying he's not gay like TAWWT and then describes his beer drinking, cigar smoking, bikie girlfriend.
