We all know that the decision was Ricks to make back a year ago. He sits on TV and tucks his balls between his legs comfortably and blames it on the DA. Now absolutely Dan needs to put this where it belongs in a independent party's hand. I hope the people of Dickson will finally see that Rick Chandler cares nothing for you or his employees. I hope you will not forget this next sheriffs election Bledsoe needs a kick for his flippant attitude and treatment of a women who give him her husband for the safety of all citizens.
Rick and his Commando Linda Nichols was well aware of the scenario between Kim Eggenburg and several officers. Jason Eggenburg went to the police dept and to Kims direct boss and told her what was going on her exact words was "we dont address what is done off work hours". The people working in dispatch then and anyone in the room would have heard this comment.
I suggest we the people ask for Rick's, Bledsoe, and Lockarts resignation that is a small price to pay for what they cost the people of Dickson.

Folks, please consider the source behind all of this...Jake Lockert. He has spent the last couple years doing this crap to Dan. He doesn't want Dan to run again so he can try to win. Look at all the lies he made up about Humphreys Co. He tried to ruin their sheriff & he was cleared of everything!

The sheriff in Humphreys County as been cleared of nothing. You should watch his video deposition and all the "alleged" crimes he admitted to committing. Mr. Locket isn't running for DA and neither is Alsobrooks.

Your quote proves my point. The ouster suit against the sheriff was thrown out of court. The sheriff has been cleared of everything, he was never charged with anything anyway.

The story makes me "LOL" literally!! It is so sad what some people will do for attention and even worse, the sad people that believe it. You people that believe everything you hear and watch on tv should really find something better to do with your time. They beef up stuff for tv just like everything else for ratings and all that. It is not all true.

All I know is the "scorned, grieving widow" is playing all of you who believe this crap for fools. Meanwhile, behind all those fake tears she's crying on tv for her 15 mins of fame, she's whoring around with every cop she can get to fall for her pathetic story.

No where does she say "thank you" to the DCSO and the administration for what they have done for her. She's extremely ungrateful. She basically used them for what she wanted and needed and when they said "we can't help you anymore or there's no more we can do for you" she threw them under the bus, despite all the hoops they have jumped through for her. This is a circus and she is the ringleader. The victims here are those 2 boys that have fathers in the ground that they will never know!!! But it has been made to look like SHE is now the victim. I hope they find, during this investigation, what they found during the first one, nothing. So everyone will shut up about this and move on... FINALLY!!!

There is not going to be a sheriff or police chief anywhere that can make people happy with every decision they make. People are taking the fact that the sheriff refused to comment to the media as a "well he must be guilty of something" attitude when that was not the case at all. I would've done the same thing because whatever he may have said to Phil Williams would have twisted and turned into something it wasn't anyway (like the story that was shown) so what would've been the point?? I support him and the decision he made not to comment. Some times its just better not to say anything and the facts speak for themselves. There is ANOTHER investigation being conducted so everyone will know what happened eventually. In the meantime, everyone can compare notes and argue whose story is the right one because that's all I see. No one knows except for those involved and one of them is dead, so unfortunately some questions will never be answered.

To Frustrated:
If this story makes you have Lots of laughs you should stay frustrated because your one sick puppy. I believe your statement is the most stupid I have read in a long time.
Please listen one more time there is proof and wittiness from the city of Dickson Police department that heard Commando Nichols talking in front of all that was in the building about her conversation with Jason Eggenburg about Kim and her not going to do anything about her behavior. Not one of these people have been questioned by any investigator. Wonder why because the city is doing its own investigation about its own employees and a County Deputy's death. I'm in the process of letting the City council know and the mayor and the city administrator so hopefully they will get involve.
If all frustrated has to say is ugly things about a woman who give her husband to protect us then how about keeping your stupid mouth shut that is the most ungrateful, disrespectful, biased, thing besides my post now I have ever heard. You ask for it. I hope all the City of Dickson Police Dept management and the County Sheriff can sleep at night with blood on their hands.

To Concerned from Camden:
Yes I'm saying that the City of Dickson top officers knew that Jason Eggenburg was a possible threat and his wife was having at the very least a good time playing the game along with several of the Deputy's to include at least one of the officers from Humphrey's County by the last name of Ethridge. I have no idea if Kim was really having all these affairs but she was definitely ragging it on. Big guy is right they all should have to pay equally. Jason Eggenburg went to the police Department and spoke with Linda Nichols Ricks right hand, He also tried talking to the night supervisor for the cops too in hopes that the Dickson police Department would do the right thing or at least make an attempt to do anything and Rick chose along with Nichols to turn their heads. This is not the first incidence Dickson Chief of Police has been on the news for being crooked remember his drug task force taking money from cars on I-40 for drugs and producing no drugs I suppose the news media have nothing to do but set around and make up stories about Dickson and its always the police dept. Very coincidental!!

Well now we have channel 4 making up stuff about Burns Chief of Police. What the hell is wrong with Dickson County the law dogs are crooked in every town?
This is a good time for the Mayor of Dickson and Council to get to work on replacing the heads of the Dickson Police Dept and the Mayor and Council replacing the chief in Burns and hopefully the people in Dickson Co has better sence than to vote Bledsoe in as sheriff again. Then the citizens of Dickson may have a chance and will not be embarrassed every night when the news is on at 6PM.

Why cant Rick be courteous enough and resign and take the Nichols lady with him they are responsible for aiding and abedding in Deputy Bellar's death.

Can anyone explain that on the interview with Rick Chandler he stated he new Bellar, well while at the Christmas party last year in making a speech he couldnt even remember his name.

Poor Dickson County the news media is still seeking you out and making up stories about your Police Departments. Get a Life people!!!!!

I'm waiting to hear if the City oifficials are going to do anything with Nichols and Rick. One of the councilman have told me over the phone he backed Rick had all the confidence in him. This would have been Mike Legg is he doesnt care about getting to the bottom of the truth. Its this attitude that keeps corruption in our legal system!! I hope he is right but extremly skeptical because this Dept has been caught in the middle of so many lies and theiving. They have been an embarresment to the great citizens in the City. I know their are some good officers its the upper management that seems to be so crooked and cold.
What happened to the ones that turned to bad cops Rick hasnt always been so crooked cant say the same for Nichols she has been an ass from the start. She is pathetically, undeserving of her title, cares only for herself, and jealous of anyone with a higher education or any type of scruples at all. She is a part of these deaths.

Can the people of Dickson County speak out at all. If you are in favor of Deputy Bellar's family let the sherif and the Mayor or City dministrator know how you feel. Please make it known that you will not tolerate this behavior from your Chief of police or anyone else call your commisioners let them know you want Rick Chandler and his Commando gone. Humm Humm wonder why he keeps COMMANDO around!!!

Make 2013 the year the people of Dickson will take their City and County back from the crooked law dogs. Lets dont forget the 23rd judicial drug task force stealing money every day.

Well the investigation is now over and the results were the proof is to old to obtain any evidence that Linda Nichols and Rick Chandler had any thing to do with Deputy Bellars death by not doing their jobs. It is a shame that it took this long to get the Chief of Police to make a educated decision to do the right thing for his and the counties police dept. Bottom line it is a little to late to do the right thing now!!!!!!!!!
I really believe the truth will be discovered even I this is not the best investigator to do so it took TV to get this one completed. It will take a fund raiser to take it to court Dickson County owes it to Mrs Bellar and her son.
Actually Mrs Eggenburg owes it to her as well as the police officers she was flirting and rubbing it in her husbands face. Rick and Linda its not over yet.
