Always good advice. They have lived their life and don't feel good.
They will kill Yerass just to prove their point.

It could be he just didn't want to go to the Dentist. Jest sayin...



Laurel County man accused of setting up booby trap on front porch

Raymond Jackson (Laurel County Detention Center)

LONDON, Ky. (WKYT) - Laurel County authorities have arrested a man accused of setting up a booby trap device on the front porch of his home.

Sheriff's deputies say they responded to a home on Cole Road Wednesday evening after receiving a complaint that an intoxicated man was waving a large knife at neighbors.

Deputies arrived at the home of 56-year-old Raymond Jackson, where they found a booby trap device. The device was described as a half sheet of plywood with several knives sticking out of it. It was mounted on a hinge to swing downward.

Jackson claimed the booby trap was at the home when he purchased it several years ago, and he didn't know how to take it down.

Deputies charged Jackson with possession of a booby trap device, and he was placed in the Laurel County Detention Center.

Possession of a booby trap device? Is that really a criminal charge? So, I can't store a mole trap in my garage, or a rat trap? Both are clearly dangerous devices, right? I think instead of putting this guy in an orange jumpsuit, the sheriff should be helping him out. Clearly he's lost his mind, right? Maybe an amber alert. :D

And something else just occurred to me. According to the story this jackwad was "waving a large knife" at the neighbors, right? And he gets charged with possession of a booby trap? Aren't there charges about brandishing a weapon, or threatening with a weapon? Or perhaps he was waving that knife from 75 yards away and possession of a booby trap was all the cops could think to charge him with. The whole thing sounds a little bogus to me.

Here's a photo I found that shows the "booby trap." I guess it might work if the intruder were totally blind.
