Randy Garrett is a stand-up guy. Why on earth he chose to hitch his wagon to Arnold and his bunch of thugs and rejects is beyond me.
Maybe Arnold wants to improve his existing lazy do nothing police force with good leadership.
Shove it Farmall...........
And I was begining to think nobody cared. I appreciate your concern.
So, Farmall, what would YOU do to make the SD better? Besides electing a crook, that is.
I think getting rid of Jones & Co. was a good start to cleaning up the mess at the Sheriff's department and making it better. The majority agreed it was time for Truman and the good old boys to go. Jones on the other hand just figured he was a shoe-in for another four, that he owned the office. He and his got slapped in the face by reality. He can whine all the way to the unemployment office as far as I am concerned.
I'm a local cop in the Rutherford Co area and although I've never met the man, I've heard nothing but good things about Chief Garrett.
I don't think Arnold is the right man for Sheriff, but I wish Mr. Garrett well.
For starters when a 911 call comes in about a car driving 70mph on a dead end 19ft from 17 children. The driver has no tags or insurance on the car. Yet when the deputy arrives the car is not sppeding but is still nearby and reving the engine. I believe a couple of tickets would be in order. Not just let the guy go with a talking to, like had happened several times in the past.
This is why I refer to the sheriffs dept. as a do nothing department. I have seen several instances similar to this one. To answer your question, a little enforcement would be nice.
Farmall. Cops cant make arrests based on heresay. If he had no tags or insurance certainly a ticket may be in order but it is a subjective situation at that point depending on the circumstances.
Too bad for Rutherford County. I cant believe that people are so easily hoodwinked. You talk about Truman and the good ole boys....what do you think you got now?
I know of some questionable situations at the RSCO but I hear the words corruption, do-nothing, mess, and nothing to back those adjetives up.
It wasn't heresay, the deputy witnessed the car on the street, heard the loud reving of the engine, no tags or insurance. Yet still let them off entirely. I and my neighbor, both told the deputy what he had been doing, the children confirmed it. Yet he still did nothing. With actions like why bother to have a police force.
I'm just glad I was able to do my part, by VOTING, to clear the cesspool of Management at the RCSO...
Good Riddance to you Truman(?)Jones...
