I don’t go to every trial and hearing but Mr. Standefer’s of Dunlap Tennessee stood out. A convicted violent rapist, allegedly caught with a gun, drugs and violating the sex offender registry, he seemed like a poster child for people that can’t obey the law and have no regard for judges, the laws that prevent felons from having deadly firearms or any persons safety but his own. It all reminds me of the definition of a dangerous scenario building. A story later about another rape or murder that could be prevented.
When Mr. Standifer was in the “box” where defendants sit he was visibly shaken, his eyes were welling up and he was shaking and bouncing his legs like a paint shaker. Was this the man several of his neighbors had told me they feared so much? He seemed like an effeminate nervous schoolboy, trying to avoid a paddling by acting like he was sorry for his actions. I almost felt sorry for him and then his victims flashed in my mind. How much had they shook and how many tears they must have cried?
So far the sex offender registration was dropped and it was said it was because everyone knew he was a sex offender. Everyone could know someone has a house full of drugs but that shouldn’t hinder a prosecution for drugs. I am the first to admit I know little of the Tennessee judicial system and may have missed something in all this. Continue reading
DunlapTattler.com The only publication dedicated to the Citizens of Sequatchie County
The Sequatchie County High School is failing and as always trying to point the finger of blame or sow the seeds of mutual culpability to the citizens. If the parents have a school alternative, I suggest they take it. We have no public school alternatives.
More evidence of failing local school below. Continue reading
We are all intelligent people here and there could not be any other answer. I can’t imagine any mind that could consider this supervision. If it was supervision it was incompetent. Incompetence in an organization is the responsibility of the leader. I believe this entire program to be a danger to our community. It has been sex and drugs, next time it may be murder and mayhem. We have been assured on many occasions that these prisoners are properly supervised in our community. The words were hollow and apparently had no meaning whatsoever.
