    2 down, a few more to go.

    The citizens of Coquille (and the surrounding area) are so high off this arrest, I’m starting to worry that we’ll need balloon strings. . .

    I wonder if the DA will sentence him to Lunch Hour Monitor at the High School?

    Hey DA, here’s another one you can coddle. Make it easy on your lazy self and sentence this one like you do all cops, slap on the hand, jab of the elbow and a wink?

    The worm has turned DA Frazier, yer buddies be goin down.

    Coquille is cleaning house and it is a beautiful thing to see.

    Thank you to all you citizen activists who demand a clean “transparent” government.

    So much for Cooks Thin Blue Line BS, huh? Don’t hear anything from that camp thank Gawd.

    You folks were right and the right thing is finally done.

    Not the end of the Bryant story I fear. This man is a danger to anyone and everyone around him.
