Is the Criminal Justice system working?  The Sheriff in Spartanburg County in South Carolina doesn't think so.  He does think it's time for citizens the arm themselves.

Speaking at a news conference yesterday Sheriff Chuck Wright spoke his mind.  He's known for doing so.

The conference was concerning a woman that was attacked in a park over the weekend.  The offender is a long time veteran of the Criminal Justice system.  He's been charged with many crimes against women.  20 charges dating back to 1983.
