I hope Ed Vaughn wins the election for Commonwealth's Attorney for Surry. If you look at Poindexter's past you will find he was growing "Pot" in his backyard and nothing was done about it. Alot of the law enforcement in Surry is or has been involved in the drug trafficing. Surry needs someone who is not bias and will enforce the law when it is needed. To much goes on in the County of Surry that is overlooked by our law enforcement.

The pot calling the kettle black. Which one is the pot and which one is the kettle?

What a sad commentary on Virginia Prosecution, that these are the best Virginia has to offer.

Hurrah. Finally the people of Surry have seen the light. Poindexter is one of the worst prosecutors in the area.Poindexter is not there is uphold the law. It depends who and what you are if he is going to overlook the law. He has put Surry on the map and given it a bad name. I hope Ed Vaughn wins the election. If an investigation were done on Poindexter I think they would come up with things that would bring him before the bar. I have never heard of any prosecutor denying serving a search warrant and the Feds having to take over. Get Poindexter out of there and get Surry back to a law abiding county.

The people of Surry haven't seen the light yet but as least they now have a 2nd person to vote for. Let's see if they do.
