Looks like some correctional officers will be losing their job and pension over this.

We used to enjoy looking through the "most wanted" posters at our local post offices while waiting in long lines just to purchase stamps. When those posters were removed a few years back, I asked the teller, why were they taken down? She shook her head and with a half grin, said "negative signage." Is that not the epitome of political correctness? These are "negative people" was my response. They could be standing right next to you in a store, and you probably wouldn't know it without a recent photo of them in your mind. My vote is to bring back the "Most Wanted Posters" but I'm just one voice. The times, they are a changing......

Sherriff Dart has clambered abord the bandwagon of politicians trying to make hay over the bodies of shooting victims asking for new laws. Perhaps he should expend more energy in doing his job, (like keeping convicted felons in custody).
