 A 38-year-old Kalispell man with an extensive criminal history admitted Thursday in Flathead District Court to violating the requirements of his sentences in three former cases spanning 12 years.

Scott Lee Davis testified that he smoked marijuana, drove with an invalid driver’s license, and that he was arrested for partner or family member assault, although he denied committing the actual offense as well as allegations that he had tested positive for methamphetamine and that he had not completed a chemical dependency evaluation. He claimed to have completed the evaluation in February.

            Wow this guy is a hard-core habitual re-offender, yet they keep slapping him on the wrist and letting him out of jail. Makes you wonder who he's sleeping with... and to show how ridiculous the justice system is in Flathead county, there was a guy, a first time offender, who hit someone on the face with a phone book and his bail was set at just under a quarter of a million dollars, and he spent 11 months in jail and got 10 years probation AND listed as a violent offender on the violent offender registry. And it was determined during the trial that the defendant committed the assault because he was mentally ill and was not on his medications, which wasn't his fault as Lamplighter had repeatedly refused him mental health services, claiming he "wasn't mentally ill enough FOR services". Flathead county, the jail, the sheriff's department, the judges, the prosecuting attorneys, and the city cops are all crooked. It's all about WHO YOU KNOW instead of WHAT CRIME YOU COMMITTED. Utter insanity.

            It's okay, justmom, the point is, there is a story here, more than what we can ever know. I too hope he gets better somehow. I know him. Not very well, but enough to feel there is something salvageable there.

            justmom, it is quite common for many posters here to think they know it all, and wish ill will to others, if it was up to them, we would do away with the legal system and just hang most in the town square at noon, once they have been accused of a criminal act. If you spend any amount of time reading through postings on here and other news sites, it is amazing how many legal scholars each community has.

            It sounds like your son has problems and needs some time in jail to break his pattern of behavior, he has made his choice and he needs to stand up and take the punishment. Don't pay attention to the fools that say he should be put down, or he should shoot himself, they are always here posting that kind of crap.

            Hopefully it is not to late for your son to clean his act up, if he doesn't he will have a very sad life for the rest of his days.

            partyer: I really am not comfortable putting personal info out there especially after some of these coments but to anwser a couple of your questions and I will be riduculed for. no, I don't think Scott was a problem child, He did do well in school so well in fact that he did 3 grades in 1 year and when he got in trouble the school no longer wanted him affiliated with them, He went from there pride and joy to get away from us.
            I have learned from posting here that there is only a few opinions that should count so thankyou for trying to understand. Have a good day

            I predict they will mellow out as their ignorance diminishes.
            Perhaps your son was a problem as a child, and has a juvenile record. A PO said parenting is part of his problem- because mom and dad are busy making a living- and can't watch him all the time, right?
            Question, how did he do in school? Was he a problem while being cared for there, and how were his grades? Was he in any extra-curricular activities, sports, anything like that? And tell us about his friends, what were they like, how well did you know them and their families? Thanks.

            I'.m just so honored to be posting with such singled minded folks!!!!! partyer asked for some info so maybe you could all understand a little better and maybe open your minds a little but I can read that it isn't gonna happen because you don't have the abilty. The flathead certainly has enough Gods. It must be tough to be so perfect and live in your world!

            It isn't fair to his next victim that our system failed to properly protect us all. Look at it that way. I wonder if his assault victim thought of that. Yes please, help us understand, justmom.

            partyer: Thank you, I will go a little way into Scott's situation. His 1st P.O. chose not to help him but to make probation pretty much impossible to abide by. Her first words to me was that I was an unfit mother because I was a working parent as is his dad.and that there is no reason for both parents to have to work if one had a good enough job, He was sent to prison at a young age.He didn't come form money, but he's always been and always will be loved. He has made mistakes and bad judgement calls Scott"s violations sound bad and the p.o has the power to put stuff how they want to to be heard . they never release that the probationer has complied and how well they do.. as for the assult charge which is sill to come to trial... he pled not guilty by self defence... he was the one getting hit while holding thier daughter. Scott choose not to file on her. there is 2 sides to most things.

            justmom, people here really are just trying to figure out why we have these problems. There is a lot more to Scott's situation than what this newspaper will ever dig into. If somebody could explain his history accurately, maybe it could help somebody else from ignorantly repeating it. We don't know what his problem is. Assumptions could be made pretty easily. You did not show any insight that would prevent us from wondering if his upbringing didn't contribute to our present situation. I say "our problem" because he isn't your problem anymore, he is ours. I think it's fair we know the truth about what we're up against. You could help.

            If he had just served the original 10 years in prison, how many of his other crimes would have been prevented? Just saying.

            photoguy, I do understand what you have said, and yes I will love my son always, I've not said that he is a perfect person and you do have to go by what you are reading, I was just saying that unless you have been in the court room, or walked in his shoes and do know the facts that a person shouldn't be so quick to judge, I usually don't post anything so I'm putting myself out there for this. I have learned from reading these posts that they usually come from folks that have the opinion that thiers are the only ones that can be right.I was just trying to maybe show a different insight to how things could be.

            I think he needs to be taken out to a field, shot in the head, and buried where he lands. Quick and cheap. He's a waste of a human life and does not deserve to live.

            justmom, there is a point in time, when the record goes so far back that you can't help but believe the accounts in the news.. 12 years is quite a long time, then add in the convictions, suspensions, revoked sentences, and continued criminal behavior, how much are we really expected to believe and how much should we forgive? I realize, everybody has somebody who loves them, but come on!

            it is just so nice to know that some people live in thier own perfect little world and that everything is so good that it gives them the right to be so judgemental and condeming of all that doesn't make the grade and I'd thinlk that God himself wouldn't make your world.

            you are entitled to your opinion, but you really don't know the facts of this. you are only going by what you are reading.so I understand why you would think this.

            But he's a really nice fellow. So what if he has a little drug problem? He just likes pot and meth and oxycodone, that's all. And beating people up. And gambling. Of course he sells drugs, for crying out loud how is a poor guy supposed to make a living around here? And how is he supposed to make his appointments with his PO if he's in jail? Come on, give him a break. And how would you expect him to get around without driving? Who needs a license, anyway? I think they're just being big meanies. Look at his photo on conweb, how could you not just love the guy?

            photoguy Posts: 940

            justmom, based on his record, I don't need to know him to know what he is. He is now facing up to life, sounds like a real productive position in life to be in?

            so I am just one more putting in my opinion but none of you know scott, but are really quick in how you think things should be dealt with. you seem to think that he is automatically quiltly. yes the prisons are full and have waiting lists but prison isn't always the best way. how pften does someone really get rehabilitated and come out of there square with society? more often that not, the prisoners learn how to become better crimanals. what happened to the folks of probation doing what they get paid for? If I understand right part of thier job is to help the prbationer along the way to help find maybe a job, helping them to make sure they are trying to in the right direction etc...they are turn out the door and on thier own.It is common knowledge that finding a job, let alone a decent one isn't gonna happen.

            Maybe because the prisons are already full. We need more but that's not in the budget. What is in the budget is keeping death row inmates alive forever. That's what we need to work on first. It's not like people are gonna start behaving anytime soon. Unless there's a different plan I haven't heard about.

            More evidence that the law is usually an a**, and that those who make the law are generally jacka**es.
            Almost daily we read stories of criminals and wannabe criminals entangled within Alice in Wonderland legal machinery. If it were not for the robbed, abused and murdered it would all be a Woody Allen comedy.
