“Love these put up. These individuals are criminals and forfeited any rights once they commit crimes. If caught, convicted and punished. Most don’t seem to be first time offenders. If it offends you, move on and do not follow.”
“If all and sundry has an issue With what they publish on their page stop following it and you won’t see it!! i like the thug tree!!”
“It is gloomy that some people are offended by way of these interesting posts of the cell County Sheriff branch. yes they are entertaining. yes they get people staring at, searching and speakme. I consider that these are a fine option to get the neighborhood concerned in trying to find these “alleged” criminals and letting the judicial equipment allow justice to be triumphant. It is gloomy that a number of people get indignant and butt hurt when the MCSD is soliciting for community help in getting these THUGS at the back of bars.”
