If we are to get any changes enacted through the legislature, we are going to need all the help we can get. One thing that would really help is if every time local media reports on these thugs being arrested, they would tell us how many times, and for what offenses they have been arrested. It doesn't take that long to hit the JSSI website and count it up, though it would be nice if the clerk's website gave you that information for each individual.
A quick look at the two people who were arrested in the sex sting at Overton Park showed that Eddie McGhee has been booked into the county jail 31 times, and Eric Martin - 22 times. If the news outlets start talking about how many times each offender has been arrested, it will draw attention to this problem, and maybe our local legislators will start trying to deal with this issue.
