Police Chief's Daughter Charged With Carrying Weapon To School

Authorities arrested a woman on Wednesday for bringing a shotgun to campus.

She was charged with unlawful possession of a .20 gauge shotgun on educational property.

The charge carries a misdemeanor penalty.

    For anyone that knows this person, her court date for her assault charges are today and her court date for her weapon charge is on Thursday, the 3d of December. I wonder if her daddy, or her name will get her off with just a slap on the hand, if that... She has been charged with many assault charges, but never convicted of them. Funny how that happens. I am very curious to see what the outcome is on this issue.

    I too am fed up with this womans behavior. She is always getting away with the outrageous things that she has done. She needs to pay the price for her conpulsive lieing and exploding behavior. The sheriffs know her very well and they too know that she is off her rocker. Justice needs to be served!

    I am fed up with special people getting special treatment. I have known Rashona for 5 years and the things I saw her do are alarming. She is a time bomb ready to explode. What is it going to take for someone to give her what she deserves.

    Further reports state that Miss Hargett was, in fact, on campus as a student, attending her final class. So, isn't that a felony, as explained by the police officer? And wouldn't it be hard not to see a "shotgun" sitting on the passenger side of a car? Young people in our school system are punished to the fullest if they carry any type of weapon on school grounds. What is this saying to our young students?

    This name sounds familiar........I'm just finding it hard to believe she was hunting. Would the DA be interested in leads to drug charges?

    If she has previous charges apparently she has a problem. She should not get a slap on the wrist. She should definately be made an example of. We are lucky is was probably just her stupidity and not someone who would of hurt someone with it. If they let her walk next time we might not be so lucky. Someone really needs to teach her a lesson.

    I think the point that is tring to be made about her dad being Chief of Police is that she will walk with less of a charge for that reason. I kknow Rashonda and she has gotten away with things in the past because of who her dad is. She is a grown adult and should know better. A hunter who should know the saftey rules and the daughter of a cop who should of all people be fully aware of the laws. She should'nt be allowed back on school property and made to do the proper time. What is she teaching her young children.

    Everyone should carry a gun everywhere and start helping our local police---THEY NEED OUR HELP. It is evident that they cannot control the crime alone, much less solve a case. Protect yourselves--IT'S YOUR RIGHT!!!!!

    Why do you people think that it should be a felony if you attend a school function and have a weapon in your vechicle? I suppose if I were going to harm someone at school I wouldn't bring my gun knowing it was against the law...lol. You need to proscute the guilty and leave the law abiding people alone.
