  1. This “man” has left a trail of destruction and destroyed innocent lives–and that’s independent of these charges. If lawmakers read any of these comments please, please keep him behind bars for a very long time. He will continue to harm others if he is let out any time soon.

  2. Finally, we get a good call on a big bond for Adam Johnson, and it is a really good call. He has been caught before with meth and his bond was not enough too keep him off the streets where he could deal more. He is a man with a long rapt sheet, and this arrest and fair bond and other agencies involved to work to make sure he spends a long time behind bars and not in our town makes me happy. If you wonder why I feel this way, I made him angry once I guess, and got a letter from him and all I will say is that nobody wants to be called those words. So yes, I’m happy he won’t be here to terrorize neighbors. Thanks to all who worked to get this man hopefully behind bars for a long time.
