You are allowed to possess weapons but if you are in possession of drugs and weapons at the same time you are violating laws. When you purchase a handgun you have to answer a question about if you are using drugs -- people who use drugs are more irrational hence they should not be in possession of a firearm. Do you want someone who has not slept for several days carrying a handgun-- meth, alcohol, pot, cocaine, and other drugs don't mix well with firearms.

Being able to possess a firearm is a right we are guaranteed under the constitution but like other rights we are guaranteed under the constitution there are restrictions, rules & regulations. You have to qualify under federal & state laws to own a firearm. Freedom of speech is another findamental right we are guaranteed under the constitution but not an absolute right. The government has places many restrictions on speech including time, place =, manner, commercial speech, defamation, etc... Generally the argument surrounds the area of response to the audience. For example, it is unlawful to shout "Fire" in a crowded movie house and you can not use speech to advocate the overthrow of the American Government. Likewise, under the Bradenburg test, if the speech is so hateful that it coudl provoke an immediate response and imminent threat, then it can be censored. Websites preaching hate are constantly being monitored by various government agencies. Most states like California have statutes which outlaw "fighting words" or words to provoke an attack. The government has not infringed upon any rights by putting restrictions upon speech. I will use racism, abortion, and gay marriage as examples as these are controversial topics. I am not a racist, don't care who has an abortion, and do not care if 2 consenting adults are both male or female and want to hook up. The majority of American's are not racist although you will find websites which promote racism. These individuals are free to be racist (they are idiots) but they must not attempt to use freedom of speech to harm people who are not racist or people whom are not "white"-- same with abortion and gay marriage. Gay marriage and abortion are very controversial topics and often people get very emotional and fights have occurred over the topic. Eric Robert Rudolph bombed the abortion clinics-- his being against abortion lead to illegal activities. Freedom of speech has limits to prevent people like Eric Robert Rudolph to use speech to harm people.
My point being-- owning firearms is a fundamental right guaranteed under the constitution but not a absolute right. Each constitutional right is a fundamental right but not an absolute right.
If you are using drugs or in possession of illegal drugs you are not to be in possession of a firearm. Drugs are mind altering and many people become irrational on drugs therefore mixing drugs and firearms is a no no.
Meth leads to people not eating and not sleeping & you don't want someone who has not been eating or sleeping to be in possession of a firearm-- you don't want someone who is taking any mind altering drugs to be in possession of a firearm.

Constitutional rights are not absolute and have restrictions.

I think drug abuse occurs frequently and how often does murder occur in Des Arc? Obviously the drug problem in Des Arc is still a problem as the majority of the individuals arrested are not in prison. I hope they have learned their lesson and will not use drugs anymore-- I like Todd Fetters, Norman Berry, James Thompson and Darbin Moye as people(I do not know them on a personal level but more like friendly acquaintances) and hope if they were using drugs or trafficking drugs they have learned their lesson-- I say "if" because the article stated each person was innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
Personally, I do not use drugs and do not promote drug use, drug manufacturing, or distributing or drugs. Drugs are the root of many problems within society. People on drugs are irrational, individuals on drugs can become abusive, negectful, psychotic, etc.. Children are neglected due to drug abuse, marriages fall apart for many reasons linked to drug abuse, etc...
I am not talking about the people who were arrested but dicussing people who use drugs in general: drug abuse is the root of many problems within society: how many people are hooked on drugs and steal for their habit-- how many people prostitute themselves for drugs- how many children are neglected/abused each year due to drug abuse- how many women are beaten up due to a man being irrational and wacked out on drugs- how many fights occur due to people being on drugs- how many people die each year as a result of their own drug use or the drug use of someone else- how many people are homeless due to drug use and the inability to manage their own lives- how many homes are broken up due to drug use, which in turn causes more problems within society.
Those who use, manufacture, and distribute drugs deserve harsh sentences as drug abuse is devastating to society as a whole. Drug use is not a victimless crime. There is no such thing as a victimless crime as crimes affect society as a whole in one way or another. Drug use spreads diseases which cost tax payers as well as put doctors, nurses, paramedics, & police at risk when they come into contact with people who have diseases- drug use leads to sexual promiscuity which leads to spread of diseases as well as unplanned pregnancy -- which in turn affects others.

I hope the people who were arrested "if" they were using drugs will find a way to stop using drugs and get their lives on track.

One more thing- nothing I say in any of my post is code talk and all video footage clears me-- I can't wait to get my money & gloat.

Thank you for posting something substantive. Drugs destroy people, families, communities, contribute to other crimes and deviant behaviors, support terrorism, spread diseases, etc... Do you know how many children are abused, neglected, etc... due to drug use? Do you know that the other people of the community have to pick up the pieces at their own expense? I could go on & on. It's time to start seriously fighting the war on drugs. instead of pretending to fight the war on drugs.
I like Todd Fetters as a person (not relationship - not in love- etc... but as a person) but if he was involved in drug distribution then he should be arrested but I hope he beats the charges & straightens his life out.

I hate drug crimes more than any crime in the world. I believe that drugs contribute to many other crimes and I know for a fact that drugs destroy families, people, communities, fund terrorism, etc...

How many people do you think rob to support their drug habit? How many people become irrational and beat someone up or kill someone due to drug use? Although the majority of people murdered know their murderer- husband strung out on meth and beats his wife until she dies or gets mad and shoots her. Women strugn out on meth beat up husbands or kill husbands. I could go on & on. People spreading diseases putting doctors, nurses, police, paramedics, etc... at risk for contracting a disease.

Drug abuse is unacceptable.

Well the feds were the reason all this was made possible. If left up to the county, as soon as the case hit the prosecuting attorneys office, it would be dropped. Do not blame the cops of Prairie County on this one, this all goes to the prosecuting attorney.

Well, I used to live in Des Arc, too. I actually worked for the Sheriff's Department. There are A LOT of cops for the county that do their job to the best of their ability, and I have sat with these cops and heard them talking about the evidence they have against these murderers and the fact that Keith Rhodes WILL NOT prosecute these cases. I don't know how far into the system you have gone, but I have been about as deep into it as you can get without actually being a cop.

A Prosecutor can't Prosecute if the police ignore the crimes. I can't wait until Tabitha, my relatives, & the others are arrested & I will have a front row seat to the carrying out of the sentence.

One more thing-- Keith Rhodes regardless of which branch he works for is not going to be involved in the Prosecution of those who harmed me-- he will be removed from the case & it is not his jurisdiction.

Once again -- the video footage clears me & you can't intimidate me with lies!
