It is hard to believe given the discrepancies in the evidence that a jury could convict and a judge sentence someone to life on the testimony of two people and not the factual evidence or lack of.

How can someone be convicted on such little information? Is there something that we, the public, doesn't know? It seems to be one of those cases where they just wanted to close the case and couldn't care less about sending a young person to prison for the rest of his life. The important thing was to close the case. What a shame!!!

reason why well lets say one yell at my son told him he was going to boot camp just becase he wanted to come home to his moms the other is that if they get behind on childsupport they dont have to do any jail time like we would have to .they dont protect us like they should we are the ones in the wrong they are always right they dont mess up but i know one thing they need to clean house in grundy and get all the police officers out of there including the sheriff and put some one in office that cares about people and not just drugs .they get away with murder and we are the ones who have to pay for i know of two girls that where driving through grundy and officer b*** stop them and tried to tell them if they would have sex with him he would not write them a ticketwhat kind of law do we have sex offenders ?grundy county is the most worst place to live .

ihappen to know some people close to adam. therefore, ifollowed the news,the trial, everything very closely. There was NO EVIDENCE!
I was aghast when I saw the headline in the Herald-Chronicle. From everything I saw and read I was certainly expecting a NOT GUILTY verdict for this young man. Sad excuse for justice.
adam should get medal

what comes around goes around and i think they should pin a medal of honor on adam for riding grundy county of one of the most corrupt son of a b****es in the county who was in bed with all of the grundy county sherrifs department in all aspects of criminal activity. How do you let a man like this run for mayor and be one of the biggest meth cookers, sellers and hydrocodone dealers in the county. I am distantly related to his wife denise and they all should be were he is.
adam is not guilty without a shadow of a doubt and the ones that should be sentenced to life is the corrupt grundy co. sherrifs dept. sherrif brent myers and the entire judicial sytem that overseen this entire case. i am ashamed to call grundy county home.

I've followed this case & am still in complete & udder shock. Is anyone ever going to do what is right? Will anyone ever tell the whole truth & stop being afraid to stand up for what they know is true? Will justice ever truly prevail? It is obviously in God's hands & He will guide the propper authorities to do what they know in their heart needs to be done! Adam is hanging in there,waiting on the truth to come out once & for all!!!!! Let's all help this young soul. Grundy County can be redeemed!

I know Adam personally and know he is not capable of any violence at all. I sat in the court room for every minute of the farce that was called a trial. There was absolutely no physical evidence at all. There is no way a man was beat to death and no blood was anywhere. Grundy county officials should be ashamed for this wrongful conviction.

Grundy County is famous for messing up and covering up.

The jury was from Grundy County that convicted this man.

Let me start by saying my husband grew up with adam and he hung out at our house many of times, there is no way that he did what they are saying he did, Adam had the most respect for life and others. we were very close with him and his wife tiffany, I really dont give a shit what grundy county people say he is NOT guilty. I just hope that someone would allow the truth to show before a young man spends the rest of his life somewhere he doesnt belong. why wont more people who know that he is not guilty stand up for him? Because grundy county is so fucked that you do not have freedom of speech you live in fear because of what someone might do to you or your family. so why doesnt everyone sit on their asses and live in fear while a man sits in prison for NOTHING and anyone who wants to doupt what I just said GO STRAIGHT TO HELL< I KNOW ADAM AND YOU CANT TO SAY HE DID IT

look out because its about to happen again to the teacher they say raped that 17 year old boy from Grundy. there isnt any evidence and the boy has been telling everyone he just said it because he is mad at the teacher.but they put the man in jail anyway and are taking him to trial. same as this no evidence and they made up stories saying the teacher confessed but then in court said he didn't. this place is corrupt.

Oh wait, you wanted us to drop a fucking name? Try James Caldwell tracy city police department. He's a fucking murderer, a conspirator, and a mob cop. They killed kermit bryson much the same way. he was merely defending his home. they killed him, he didn't kill himself. adam is a patsy. he's had a hand in it, but they forced him. we can prove that they are dirty, we're just waitin on someone to kill these cops, then we come out with our evidence. it's open season on you dirty cops. we have went to war to come home and fight our own corrupt government. we know all. take one, you bought the pack. see you in hell, we promise we'll keep it warm for you. see you in hell.

Advice for a few, mentioning names may result in legal actions!

Mr. Bryson took his own life, after killing a Grundy County Deputy in June 2008. Bryson also shot a Monteagle Police Office.

The events took place on the outside of Monteagle!


Mr Bryson was a wanted a man!
