      The Eighth Amendment (Amendment VIII) to the United States Constitution is the part of the United States Bill of Rights (ratified December 15, 1791[1]) prohibiting the federal government from imposing excessive bail, excessive fines or cruel and unusual punishments, including torture. The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that this amendment’s Cruel and Unusual Punishment Clause also applies to the states. The phrases in this amendment originated in the English Bill of Rights of 1689.

    poor girl, looks like she has been crying….LOL.

    I hope you have to serve years in prison….that will give you some time to think about all the lives you were helping to screw-up.

    Well operation Clean Sweep has been rounding up ppl left and right , these ppl need to be locked up for good but it won’t happen bc once they post bail all charges will be dropped when they return to court they might get probation on community service but that’s it bc they need ppl like this on the streets that way they can continue to rack up on money !!!! It is job security for all employees of Yadkin county …. This place is the biggest joke ever !
    They only arrest half the ppl that they see doing stuff or get word of but let others walk if they will rat or they kno someone that works in that god forsaken courthouse , it’s all about who you kno or who u wil blow in this county !!!

  • Tha Boss

    I think all these ppl should b locked up for good , I have talked to officers in this county about ppl and what they are doing but they say they kno what’s going on but want to wait til they catch them doing something worse , just like these ppl out here driving wit no licenses and have had 2 or 3 dwi’s they just right them a ticket when they feel like it just to bring in more money or keep continuing the court dates and allowing them to do what they please , this operation clean sweep is rediculous … Dnt get me wrong I’m glad they have got these ppl for now but for instance one car that got stopped had 4 occupants and only 3 got charged with all kinds of drug charges the other one didn’t happen to have anything on him at the time but his mommy is best friends with the judge over all this and the deputies knew it so they let him walk …. One big circle jerk if you ask me … I wish it was like back in the western days i would personally make sure Everyone got what they deserved instead of just part of them !!!

        To be honest the “prescription medication” was never her thing so OGBOBBYJOHNSON why don’t you take your know nothing information somewhere else.


      She clearly got *caught up with someone that could supply her with her need of prescription narcotics.

    • brittbritt

      Yeah megan is a good girl. She just got caught up with the wrong people.. but no need for people to be on here trashing anyone these people have families that see the post people make and it makes it ten times worse. And who are have of these people to judge them only God can judge..

  • girlbye

    Ok, let me ask some questions. How many of us can chose our adult relatives way of living? NONE.
    How many of us love our families unconditionally? ALL OF US.
    How many of us wish better for our families? EVERYONE DOES.
    How many of us have perfect families? NOBODY DOES.
    With that being said, before going to FB or any other public website to post things about the Yadkin County drug busts and make comments that you think are funny, pray. Pray for the families and for the ones involved. It’s just so happens that I have a family member in this and everyone has been more than happy to voice their opinion about her. My mama taught me to not say anything if I couldn’t say something nice. Please do the same, friends. Nobody is perfect and we have ALL made mistakes.

    per the words of a wise woman.

    The girl here happens to be my sister I cant nor can she change what has happened but as her sister that loves her unconditionally I will stand by her and support her in becoming a better person. instead of the trash talk stop and say a prayer.

      I have to say I completly agree with you on this, and that’s only because I went through the same thing, besides going to jail with Brandon.
      When Brandon and I had broken up, I had told myself that at least my picture wouldn’t be beside his, once he did go back to jail. Which I knew it would happen, and I knew it was going to happen soon.
      I can’t blame really anyone but myself really. But I have to say Brandon played a big majority of the situation I went through. I have recently went and have got help, because I could not live my life that way any longer. I’m my old self again, and I’m so greatful for it. I feel much better, and life is worth something now.
      I can tell you one thing it is a big change in life, and I do recomend it for Megan. I could not see myself through my life away nor can I see anyone else nither, including Megan.
      But like I said, I completly agree upon you with everything you said, all you can do is PRAY,
      I will keep her, you, and the family in my prayers!

    They will be back on the streets in no time. Look at Jackson Vick and Pate Scott in Randolph County. Jackson has had many charges against him and still his rich mommy bails him out time and time again. The man is in his thirties put him away and keep him there. The same goes with Pate Scott both of these sorry meth dealers need to be locked up for good so they can’t continue to ruin the lives of our teenagers and young adults. We need tougher sentences for drug dealers in NC. No more bonding out meth dealers. Keep them behind bars.
