There's Something Rotten About Jasper TX

http://once.unicornmedia.com/now/adaptive/m3u8/3aaae01e-e0f4-439d-aa7a-8d5e3e774105/db6630fb-4bb5-45b9-ba6e-04014bcf7f30/63945127-e9de-4879-b74d-4e5b3b0d6a36/n_sharp_4caught_130604.m3u8?visitguid=f255d911-4fea-45b1-a1de-3021429d6dec&UMADPARAMsite=47418%26UMADPARAMzone=182322

At the link is a video of Reverend Al interviewing a woman and her Attorney - She was picked up for a $150 traffic ticket in Jasper, TX on Sunday May 5th. Hopefully the link works. Basically she takes a beating because she doesn't have the $150 to pay the ticket. No audio so we can't hear the exchange.

The two officers we're fired - but it begs the question - What else is going on down there. A whistle blower released the tape - but what if they had not? I can't believe this is the first time this happened.

As a reminder - Jasper TX is where James Byrd was dragged for a few miles in 1998 by truck until he was beheaded.


Sick sick sick. Something is sick in Jasper TX.

2. I drive around, not through, Jasper when I'm heading that way.

I fear it's all gearing up again.

4. Don't you hate that feeling?

I once stopped at a gas station in Alabama, years ago on a road trip. Probably a fine little place (Eutaw...or something like that). But, I walked in...saw all the stuffed dead animals and a creepy guy in overalls behind the counter and just turned around and walked out. I think there was also a stuffed rabbitbear and squirrelgator, etc.

Got back in my car and went on to a larger gas station somewhere else. When I have to travel quite a bit, I try to hit the larger areas for gas stops, etc.

I'm sure there are good people, everywhere. But, every once in awhile...you get to thinking. Please don't let my car stop HERE!
