Rest easy, Jonesboro - ANN MARIE FULLERTON

To the editor:

You can rest easy in the City of Jonesboro now. There may be 93 registered sex offenders in Jonesboro as of May 2009 (a ratio of 1 to every 44 citizens), and the rise in the city's crime index increased from 489.6 in 2006 to 621.9 in 2007, but the fine police department in the City of Jonesboro is apprehending the most deviant criminals.

Do you realize that there are actually motorists that dare to turn left from College Street onto Fayetteville Road during the hours of 4 and 6 p.m., on Monday through Friday? These criminals are not only being given citations for this serious infraction of the law, but they are being slapped with a justifiable $150 fine for doing so.

Well, I plan to do my part to aid them in eradicating this serious crime in Jonesboro. I plan to share this information with all of my friends, co-workers and acquaintances, so that not only will they be aware of the seriousness of this crime in Jonesboro, but that they also avoid having to spend two weeks of their grocery money to keep their driver's license. You can rest easy now, Jonesboro.
