The old K&I Bridge was a "very" cool place to hang out! It was fun to walk across, climb on and fish underneath. When I get home from Iraq I'm going to go to that bridge and just hang around it and reminisce. It's one of my favorite places in the whole world.

I know virtually nothing about the case, but the David Camm I know could never have done such a thing. I know first hand how screwed up the justice system is in Floyd county.
So anything The "esteemed" prosecutors of Floyd county say...I take with a BIG grain of salt!
