    I wonder if the FBI would like photographs of high level State Attorney's office employees going to weight loss clinics and illegally getting amphetamines? You know the clinic, the one FDLE helped establish. How do you spell corruption? T-A-L-L-A-H-A-S-S-E-E.

    The Robbery suspect might be located at city hall or at the next City Commissioners meeting. His initials could be J.M. An attorney is supposed to know better. It is ironic that after the bid was awarded, the company decided to stop paying board members. Evidence of quid pro quo. Resign, donate the 66 thousand to Big Bend Hospice, or any worthwhile charity other than the john Marks benevolent fund.

    Thanks, WCTV, for being the ONLY local news outlet to report on this! Folks at DOE and FAMU spent an hour watching TPD swarm their area, without knowing what was going on, until WCTV started reporting. There still isn't a word about this on TDO, a day later.

    @Larry-Maybe the FBI will take the time to look into all the high-level state government employees going to weight loss clinics and getting amphetamines illegally while on duty.

    Robbery is a subjective term. Our Mayor took 66 thousand dollars to enrich himself and his family. This is an unexpurgated fact. He did not have a gun..he was to cowardly to use one...instead he used political influence. It is a sad day for African Americans in Tallahassee. We expect illegal behavior from a redneck sheriff in Wakulla. After he hit and ran he used a now famous excuse " I made a mistake" We expect this from a redneck crooked sheriff, but are disappointed in John Marks. Resign, Return the money. Never again attend a school as an example. You violated any definition of ethical standards. You did give us a better loss on our tax dollars than Willie Meggs. It will be a challenge to see who is most corrupt. David, John, or Willie ? The FBI is in town, It was announced 5 weeks ago. They had the evidence and witnesses including me then. :)

    The best advice i can give is to stay away from these "gun free" zones because criminals know they are the only ones with guns and you are at their mercy. wasn't it just yesterday someone at FSU was robbed and beaten on campus? . Go to college online. I would never set foot on one of these campuses and would never send one of my children to them. They are a criminals playground. rich kids with no self defense.
