This is really pathetic. The people sworn to protect and serve are pill heads, some of them anyway. When this happens it relays a message to all the other druggies and pill heads that they can go ahead and steal other hard working peoples things and the police will just turn thier head or they might even sell you some drugs. Lee co, wise co, norton, scott co, they have all turned into a haven for thiefs and druggies.

Did you know that when you get hired into law-enforcement in this area, you take no pre-employment drug test and are never tested.

Its always been funny to me that people think that cops are some how different then the average person. The fact is that more crimes are commited by police then anyone else. Most are pretty small like running a red light or searching a car with out prop cause and drug and alcohol use is much higher in the force thn in public FACT

It seems like it has been one thing after another in Lee Co. lately. It must be nice for some of them to be protected by their badge and arrest people for the same crimes they're guilty of. I don't understand how we as citizens of these counties can be expected to obey laws that our local law enforcement don't. I think it would be interesting if Wise co. were to be investigated to see how many corrupt cops and judges there are. These people are supposed to be here to protect us not be commom criminals that are above the law. I don't think it's fair that they are able to play it both ways.
