  • They must have really wanted the Woolums boy bad. I can understand not immediately making an arrest for a felony right after the buy, but to wait a week later and set him up for another FELONY charge & then three weeks later, another felony charge before finally going ahead & getting the dealer off the street? Possessing a handgun as a convicted felon? He's a former felon & they knew it & I don't know but it appears that the police really had it out for the Woolums boy & spent more of taxpayers money than necessary to make the buys & secure a much longer prison sentence or there is money to be made by pushing all of his charges through the legal system. Arrests are made on the spot for any other felony crimes & I always thought that when an officer witnessed a crime, it was their sworn duty to arrest & charge on the spot. Like I said, I can understand waiting till they get their C.I. out of harms way.
