The revolving door continues. Low-life scum who are a blight on society.

"Jones has been charged with 20 crimes, including five assault charges, records show, while Gustus has been charged with 68 crimes, including 12 assault charges".

"Yearby has been charged 26 times, ranging from domestic assault to driving on a suspended license to theft and vandalism, records show, while Williams has been charged 13 times, including speeding, assault and aggravated robbery".

Reaally?!?!?! Clearly exemplary citizens. We all wonder what’s wrong with our society. I think we should start with our justice system. That is ridiculous.

So, when did attempted murder become no longer a crime? Oh that's right, I forgot. People don't commit crimes anymore, they just make mistakes.

TN has a habitual motor vehicle offender act. Shouldn't there also be a criminal habitual offender act? Law-abiding citizens would be most appreciative if one of our state legislators took up the cause in the legislature to get such a law written and passed. Perhaps then we won't be reading news articles about a Chattanooga citizens being charged with 68 crimes. Of course, he may have been found innocent of the 68 charges, but that is highly unlikely.

Habitual offenders within the city (or state) limits should be banned from returning to the city (or state). They should lose their rights to live and work in the locale where their crimes were committed. They should be banned from receiving a TN drivers license, unemployment benefits, food stamps, etc. In other words, "get out".

Two men serious injured: I hazard a quess that neither of the "victims" have medical insurance.

Two men charged with aggravated assault and have extensive criminal histories: With their long history of violent assault I believe there will be long prison terms if/when convicted.

Ultimately who carries the burden for these four men: The U.S. and Tennessee tax payer. When are the hard-working, tax-paying citizens, illegal immagrants do not pay taxes only take from the system, going to say enough is enough? Realisticly, what are the options? ObamaCare? These two "victims" would still fall under the taxpayer funded part of the sytem. "Knife control"? Now we can't even carry a knife? Then these thugs will fork each other to death. More prisons? More taxes on the above mentions citizens. More counseling and non-prison alternative options? You have GOT to be kidding me. That is how we got here, the "it's not their fault, it's the environment they grew up in" attitude didn't work, does'nt work, and will not work. Seriously, what are we as tax paying citizens to do? What are we to expect from our elected government? When these thugs and gangs become more and more numerous and organized, who is going to protect us? The same government that won't do anything now? Food for thought.

Just think, if they'd only applied for the job to become cops they wouldn't have such an extensive criminal record, because there would be no record of their crimes.
