Robert Harley arrested
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Okay folks, this week’s “Felony Frequent Flyer” is Robert Harley, who was arrested last night by Deputy Terry Adams over in Merritt Island after he was found to be in possession of crack cocaine.
The arrest occurred after Deputy Adams stopped the vehicle Harley was driving for an equipment violation and asked Harley for his driver’s license.
In response to the request, Harley opened the center console of his vehicle at which time Deputy Adams observed a plastic baggie containing what ended up being about 14 grams of marijuana.
Having developed probable cause for a person search, Deputy Adams subsequently found approximately 3.7 grams of crack cocaine in Harley’s pocket.
Now keep in mind that Harley already has an extensive criminal history that includes serving over 16 years in state prison, for offenses to include 2nd degree murder, cocaine possession, and being a felon in the possession of a firearm.
Oh wait, it gets even better, as not only is Harley a convicted felon but at the time of his arrest last night, he was still on felony probation.
Are you kidding me…serves prison time and learns absolutely nothing and then is given yet another opportunity to be a law abiding citizen and he can’t stop being a criminal.
How many dang chances does someone get before our criminal justice system starts to learn that some people just need to be kept behind bars where they can’t break the law or victimize anyone else.
Folks, collectively, we as a community have partnered together to lower our crime rate by 52% and the criminal justice system just doesn’t seem to get it as it keeps letting these felony, and often violent repeat offenders, back out on our streets.
In my opinion, if you go to prison for 16 years and you didn’t learn a single thing about not being a criminal, being on probation ain’t gonna get the message across either!!
Oh well, the good news is that the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office believes in being “tough on crime and even tougher on criminals,” so Deputy Adams locked his butt up once again, this time on a “No Bond” status for Possession of Cocaine and On-site Violation of Probation.
Maybe this time the criminal justice system will keep him there.
