Jared Chance turns down plea deal

Jared Chance appears in court for a plea hearing.

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Accused murderer Jared Chance turned down a plea deal offer from prosecutors Monday morning.

During a hearing, he told Judge Trussock, “Go to trial.”

Chance had been offered a deal to face only second-degree murder,  tampering with evidence, mutilation of a dead body and concealing death. Instead, he could face mandatory life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Jury selection for his trial was scheduled to begin less than an hour after Monday morning’s plea hearing.

    If the local media gave this much attention to NON-WHITE crime–of which the ratio to white crime is 90-10–maybe the city could start to talk honestly about our situation and why we’re being forced by Bliss,Mark Washington and Payne to devolve into “Little Chicago”.It’s the same liberal philosophy that is destroying city after city in America. The solution being–to NOT attract low income blacks and illegal immigrants through cheap housing and laws that make section 8 a gift.A city should strive to bring in middle to higher income individuals–of which there are plenty working at Medical Mile–doctors,nurses,anthesthesiologists,X-ray technicians–who live out of town.New houses need to be built and old ghetto houses torn down.Make it unappetizing for lawbreakers,drug dealers and gangbangers to come here,but now that they’re here–make them want to LEAVE.

        No, you did not read and comprehend his post. You got your racism fired up when he mentioned Non-white crimes. His post was not derogatory, unlike yours. This is a forum to voice one’s opinions. He did so, and I can respect that, even if I don not agree with him entirely.

        You on the other hand are the problem he is speaking of, you immediately turned it into a race conflict, and bashed down his opinion in a derogatory manner, because it’s all you have. You kind of pathetic.

    Is it possible that the sicko turned down a plea deal in which he had to disclose where the victim’s remains are because he was so screwed up when he did it he actually doesn’t remember? I can’t imagine why he wouldn’t take the deal, but then I can’t imagine why he did it in the first place.
