Its about time they caught the real criminals which had been doing this in obvious sight for years. This is only part of what they have got away with. I just hope the Asheville police department is next to be under investigation by higher source. There is to much open use and selling of crack in Asheville without somebody being paid off. You've got officers handing out tickets to kids for driving infractions while watching crack deals go down in the same area. Think about that citizens of Asheville.

They forgot to add Homer Honeycutt. He was part of that good ole boys network.

Just like some of the people I worked for in Knoxville. The "boss" just knew which one to take

John Harrison was a good man and a good cop, who dedicated his life to the force.

So I would assume he is innocent. Boy will they have a listening audience to hear their stories. 99.9 percent of those in jail are innocent. Sorry to burst your bubble but once a crook always a crook. All these guys were old enough to be grandfathers. They should have known better. I would say the majority have been involved in corruption most of their careers.

Its about time this comes to a head. The former sherriff is where he needs to be along with his old fart hinchmen. They have treated people bad and locked people up for no reason. Now they sit
in jail and I hope they like how it feels. Now weneed to get the Asheville Police who are crooked as anyone. Take Robin Lyles who cheats on
his wife and sells dope. They are next and hope
they die in ahootout or something.

I remember Jack Shephard sitting on our hiring board when ole Bobby Lee first took office. Jackie sat there going through our personnel files and sneering at us.....was above the law, but now you will pay.

Jackie...was it worth it? Hope you enjoyed it you dirty #$*&@!%!

OK OK we have heard enough about Bobby Medford, What about John Ledford in Madison, that Billy Gay English help surpport him with all his wrongful doing? Thats like the pot calling the kettle black. Don't you think?

I haven't heard much lately about the missing guns, money, drugs, etc. from the Sheriff's evidence room. It makes me wonder if those guns ended up in Jackie Shephard's pawn shop. Only time will tell, I hope.
