This week I have selected the thug who is currently the "most arrested" in jail. Clifton Macon RNI # 37048 has been booked into the county jail 163 times since August of 1983. He has been charged with at least 233 separate offenses. Clifton is currently in jail for AGG CRIM TRESPASS, THEFT OF PROPERTY $500 OR LESS and ASSAULT-BODILY HARM. Even after 163 times, and numerous felony convictions, he has a $100.00 bond, which he can't seem to make. Clifton was last booked Oct 25 2007 at 8:46AM and is scheduled for court on 11/29. I'll be surprised if he isn't given a "time served" sentence. Clifton has been convicted of Robbery, Burglary, Forgery, theft, etc. This latest episode is just one of many - e pluribus unum (one out of many).
From looking at the arrest information, it appears Clifton has been assaulting Walgreens on a weekly basis. According to the report, he has been showing up every Thursday (hmm Thursday IS Thugday) and stealing stuff. He always makes sure to steal less than $500.00 worth though. Do you think he might know how the system operates?
After reviewing the litany of charges against Clifton Macon, I am convinced he should have his picture on the Wikipedia website under the definition of CRIMINAL. Some people are simply incorrigible. They will not do the right thing under any circumstances. For those people, I believe the state is obligated to protect society by removing them. How many strikes does a person deserve?
Hopefully, Clifton, the poster-boy for criminals, will help stoke the fires under the legislative process. He is certainly providing us with an example of a person who needs to be put away for the rest of his life. He has demonstrated his inability or unwillingness to "play well with others." A sentencing matrix would have gotten Mr Macon's attention long ago. You see, he is smart enough to know he needs to fly under the felony radar, but the system isn't smart enough to detect him and deter him from his actions - yet. I urge everyone to contact their legislators regarding implementation of a sentencing matrix. Here is a link to a webpage that will let you send an email to the entire Shelby Delegation at one time. Please use it.
Here are his charges and some interesting charts, oh yeah, and his mugshot.
