TRISTAN BLANCHARD ARRAIGNED...

TRISTAN BLANCHARD APPEARED IN WHITE RIVER JUNCTION COURTHOUSE ON DECEMBER 6, 2011 WHERE HE WAS ARRAIGNED, ONCE AGAIN, ON DRUG CHARGES! ON OCTOBER 13TH BLANCHARD WAS ARRESTED BY OFFICER FITZGIBBONS OF THE SPRINGFIELD POLICE DEPARTMENT. BECAUSE OF BLANCHARD'S PRIOR CONVICTION ON DRUG CHARGES HE IS NOW FACING 2 YEARS IN PRISON. DISTRICT ATTORNEY ROBERT SAND IS THE PROSECUTOR!

DURING KYLE BOLASKI'S TRIAL BLANCHARD TESTIFIED THAT HE HAD STOPPED DEALING DRUGS AND THAT HE QUIT DOING DRUGS ALTOGETHER. HE SAID HE WAS CLEAN AND THAT HE DID NOTHING BUT WORK OUT AT THE GYM AND THAT HE HAD TURNED HIS LIFE AROUND. HE TESTIFIED THAT HE WAS WORKING WITH HIS FATHER AND DIDN'T DEAL OR USE DRUGS ANYMORE. THAT HE WAS GOING STRAIGHT. THIS WAS OBVIOUSLY A LIE, AS WAS ALL OF HIS TESTIMONY. HE IS STILL A MENACE AS THE FOLLOWING INCIDENT HIGHLIGHTS...

ON SEPTEMBER 30, TRISTAN BLANCHARD WALKED INTO A PAWN SHOP IN NEW HAMPSHIRE TRYING TO PAWN OFF SOME ITEMS THAT WERE WERE STILL IN THEIR ORIGINAL PACKAGING. THE PAWN SHOP EMPLOYEE ASKED BLANCHARD FOR HIS LICENSE WHICH HE GAVE HIM. HE BECAME SUSPICIOUS AND ASKED FOR THE RECEIPTS FOR THE ITEMS. WHEN BLANCHARD COULDN’T PRODUCE THE RECEIPTS HE REFUSED TO DO BUSINESS WITH HIM SUSPECTING THEY MAY BE STOLEN. BLANCHARD BECAME VERY UPSET AND STARTING YELLING AND SCREAMING AT THE GUY, BECOMING VIOLENT.

HE WAS TOLD TO LEAVE THE STORE. BLANCHARD TOLD THE MAN TO STEP OUTSIDE WHERE HE WOULD BEAT THE HELL OUT OF HIM. BLANCHARD WENT OUTSIDE WHERE HE CONTINUED TO THREATEN THE MAN. THE EMPLOYEE CALLED THE POLICE AND BLANCHARD JUMPED IN HIS CAR, WHICH HE DESCRIBED AS A RED SPORTS CAR, AND SPED AWAY. HE GOT THE LICENSE NUMBER WHICH CONFIRMED TRISTAN BLANCHARD AS THE OWNER OF THE VEHICLE. HE DECLINED TO PRESS CHARGES.

WAS THE ITEM HE TRIED TO PAWN STOLEN? WHY WOULD BLANCHARD GO OUT OF STATE TO TRY TO PAWN SOMETHING IF IT WAS LEGAL? AND NOW HE WAS CAUGHT WITH DRUGS… AGAIN. DID SOMEONE GIVE HIM THE ITEMS IN EXCHANGE FOR DRUGS? IT JUST SHOWS THAT BLANCHARD HASN’T CHANGED. HE OBVIOUSLY NEVER STOPPED DEALING. HIS PROPENSITY FOR VIOLENCE ALSO HASN’T CHANGED. HIS WILLINGNESS TO BEAT THE PAWN SHOP EMPLOYEE SHOWS THAT SOONER OR LATER BLANCHARD WILL HURT SOMEONE ELSE, OR WORSE!

SO NOW THE RESPONSIBILITY LIES WITH ROBERT SAND ONCE AGAIN, WHO BLANCHARD REFERS TO AS “BOBBY” IN HIS DEPOSITION. HIS FRIEND “BOBBY” MUST NOW DECIDE WHETHER OR NOT TO PROSECUTE BLANCHARD. HE MUST DECIDE IF HE WALKS FREE, AGAIN, OR DOES HE HOLD BLANCHARD ACCOUNTABLE FOR HIS CRIMES? WILL HE PROTECT THE CITIZENS OR THE CRIMINAL? THE RIGHT THING TO DO WOULD BE TO STOP CODDLING BLANCHARD AND SEND HIM TO JAIL. HIS DISRESPECT FOR THE LAW WAS OBVIOUS IN HIS TESTIMONY DURING THE TRIAL AND HIS DISREGARD FOR THE LAW IS EVIDENT IN HIS RECENT DRUG ARREST.

WHAT MUST THESE GUYS DO BEFORE THE WHEELS OF JUSTICE FINALLY STOP TURNING IN THEIR FAVOR? MUST ANOTHER MURDER BE COMMITTED? HE MUST GET THIS DRUG DEALER OFF THE STREETS AND PROTECT THE CHILDREN OF VERMONT. "BOBBY" ALLOWED BLANCHARD TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER. WILL HE ALLOW HIM TO CONTINUE TO INFECT THE CHILDREN OF VERMONT WITH HIS POISON OR WILL HE FINALLY HOLD BLANCHARD ACCOUNTABLE? IF SAND'S TRACK RECORD FOR CODDLING CRIMINALS IS ANY INDICATION BLANCHARD WILL BE ON THE STREETS PLYING HIS TRADE FOR A LONG TIME TO COME.
