    Wake up! Politics and money buy freedom or a slap on the wrist.

    Just to let the world know the charges are dropped so let them move on. To "Shannon" you need to tend to your on business, you are only taking up for him because you want to be with him. You have no idea what goes on in there house and never will. Leave them alone and let them move on.

    No one knows the truth but 3 people Chris, Shanna, and GOD. What we do know is that this was a terrible incident that got out of hand. Its Christmas, a time to come together as family and friends. The charges have been dropped, and the wounds are healing. They will both need our prayers to make it through and hopefully the New Year will be better for them both. STOP the rumors, stop talking about their families and let them move on. Everyone has skeletons in their closets and I'm pretty sure you dont want everyone BLOGGING about your lives online, right? Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

    We can all speculate on whether he is innocent or not. Nobody knows what happened but the two of them. However, maybe someone should look a little closer into her background. I think there might be some surprises!

    In your defense of Mr. Roberson you are judging her. If he couldn't have done this because you know him so well then you are implying that she is lying. You are in quite a hurry to defend your dear friend which makes me sick. You have no idea what takes place in their home.

    Judge Not~ I beg to differ! Not one comment on this page states anything negative about his wife. Unlike all the negative comments about Chris. I have not judged her. I'm simply trying to defend a dear friend. Everyone seems such in a hurry to jump on the bash Chris bandwagon. It makes me sick!

    Some of you keep taking Mr. Roberson's side and saying that we shouldn't judge him and some go as far to say that you know him and he wouldn't do this. But while you say not to pass judgement that's exactly what you're doing to his wife. You have no idea what kind of situation she has been living in.

    You dont know~ I understand where you're coming from. My sis was also a victim of domestic violence. However unless you know Chris and his wife and some of the history then you really cant say. It's not my place to go into any more details but there is more to this story than meets the eye. I love how the news is all over this story just because Chris is asst county mgr. Not a lot of details listed in the story. Chris does not deserve all of the negative publicity. Lets try not to judge him and remember "judge not lest you be judged."

    in relation to this article..the person i see in my husband is totally different from the person everyone else sees. to everyone else, my husband is a funny, charming, quirky guy. to me..something different. please dont say 'this cant be him, i know the guy' you are not in bed with him at night, so you only know the outside/friends relationship. you hate to conclude one way or the other without facts, it can be devastating either way. whether or not you believe the story right now is only based on whether you want to believe it or not. if you are friends, please do not impose your judgement on either of them until you have facts.

    Does anyone of you people that are leaving neg comments know anything about the law?? Well I know a lil something about it and I want to share it w/you. Do you know that all someone has to do is make the accusation and its mandatory arrest & jail time. It doesnt mean that there is actually proof of anything. She could have done this out of anger. If you dont know whats going on then maybe you should keep your mouth shut. Do not judge! I have known Chris for a long time and he would never hurt anyone. Time will tell and the truth will come out. Our thoughts & prayers are w/you Chris.
