    With all the charges that have been filed against the mayor and three of the council members, looks like they are going to keep lawyers busy for the next few years.

    Why don’t the state or da’s office make these clowns resign or put them on some kind of leave until this mess is over , or can they even do that ?

      They are elected officials, meaning the voters put them in office. All the DA can do is prosecute charges brought against them on behalf of the state. People should educate themselves and go vote next time.

        Speaking of being educated….the district attorney is the person who brings charges against people on behalf of the state. Well, most do. Jonathan Stewart is too useless to do anything.

    What blows my mind is this councilman has now been arrested un Winn parish, now in Jackson parish, yet the people will continue to vote him in office. Not because of his ability, or the lack thereof, but for one reason and one reason alone. Same for the mayor.
    There is only one way to fix this problem. Will some honest, respectable, devoted black men or women run for the positions and make this town right again?
    As much as the blacks want to make this about race, it is not! It is about the town! I am all for a black mayor, if he or she is worthy of the position! Please!

    Why you all want to pick on Mr. Cottonham? He was just helping a friend out…maybe he is guilty of only not knowing all the laws.

    He turned himself in to the Sheriff’s office like a nice young man.

      A nice young man doesn’t constantly post pictures of women, party pics with multiple amounts of alcohol, and status updates about women and partying and getting “crunk”

    Yeah, it is always helpful when you might be a thug to have friends who don’t mind breaking the lawfully and claim ignorance. Oh helping him carry the girlfriend he hacked up away was wrong? Really? I was just helping a buddy. He’s a good guy–wouldn’t want to see him get in trouble.

  13. Unlnown Says:

    Maybe he needs to be locked up so he can be someone’s bitch in the jail cell .
