There needs to be two parties or more to balance things out. All one party in control, no change is made and incumbents get lazy.

To T-Bone. Glad Pat Baldwin is your friend cause if she wasn't you would be sent down the river for spitting on the street. I live in Hendricks county, familiar with the courts, and no I have never been arrested, but, I know how dirty and unprofessional our courts are run. Sooo sad that this is a red-county. If I wasn't too old, I would be knocking on doors to get a democrat in office in Hendricks county.

Central Indiana is becoming more and more like the Deep South- cynical whites fleeing to the suburbs and ex-urbs and keeping those reactionary Republicans perpetually in office. A little less ME and a little more WE can solve (albiet slowly) more issues than running away ever can.
Do you live in the deep south??? It's apparent that you don't!! IN is NOTHING like the south!! I've lived both places and NO comparison

Maybe the reason there are no Democrats or libertarians in Hendricks county is because the prosecutor, Pat Baldwin has put them all in prison for winking at her. UGH!

You have the time and energy to come here and cry on some useless chat board, but do not have the energy to get out and knock on doors? Spoken like a true Democrat.

Being old is absolutely no excuse. There are Republicans of all all ages (including the downright elderly) out there beating the streets. If you want to make change then be the example rather than begging for it. People like you are exactly why Democrats are not needed in Hendricks County.

Such a sucka! I don't vote either cause all the good guys have been sent up the river by our "elected judges" and "the" prosecutor. Republicans have control because they have scared all the others away.

Hasn't anybody noticed that the bums running for office Are All The Same? The Voters may be Republican or Democrat but the bums we vote for are really neither! They are virtually exactly the same. Thats their joke on us!

Hendricks County you are most fortunate!

Lawrence has been a total joke since Cantwell was elected.
Indianapolis is in total disarray under Peterson.
The Sheriff and IPD merger has been a disaster, now they screwed up on basic administration so all those arrested may be getting a get out of jail free card because of Peterson's and Anderson's screw ups.
Hmmm, one thing they all have in common, they are all democrats.
Wouldn't that mean that the equation looks like this democrat=incompetent?

Pat Baldwin directed Brownsburg Police Chief to call me and threaten me (Feb 2005) with arrest (I live 200 miles away) if I told Brownsburg Police Comissioners about the attack upon me by Brownsburg Police and a career criminal who Baldwin is friends with. She lets this criminal go free from his shooting binge and he never went to trial. If she's not frinds with these creeps, then they must be paying her - and why her threats to me to keep quiet? Believe me, Hendricks needs Baldwin out of that JOB. I tell state business associates all of the time about Hendricks County. It's a friendly to criminals zone. I know First Hand - I lived through it.

We lived in Hendricks county for years. The deputies are always courteous and professional. It's how you hire..As for the courts, I can't say, but the law enforcement is top notch.

I have never been arrested and am friendly with many offiers but I am fed up with the courts in Hendricks County, too. If you so much as spit in the wrong direction, the cops and procecutors want to put you in jail. Why do you think the Hendricks County Jail is so full!? There are people in there that should perhaps get a fine or nothing at all. I know first hand that this is happening. It's ridiculous. Reminder again -- I am a law abiding citizen and business person in this county, but I completely disagree with how the cops and prosecutors want to keep putting people in jail, then probation, then back to jail. Some do deserve it, but trust me, I've seen quite a few who definitely do NOT! Judge Boles needs to retire.

Hey Wow, if crime is up in Hendricks county, guess where all the criminals come from, uh, can't, need a hint. The Getto in downtown Indy. I guess if we speak the truth we are racist though. Who cares.

Judge Frazee is stealing the taxpayer's money (his salary). He is the laziest most incompetent tyrant that ever donned a robe. He insists on reams of documentation that cost litigants tens of thousands for their lawyers to prepare and he either doesn't read it or, more likely, is incapable of comprehending it. He needs to be stopped in the next election. He is truly a scab on the ass of Hendricks County.

Hendricks County is a communist county with such crooked cronies like Prosecutor Pat Baldwin and the ever loving Judge Robert Frazee. Democrats, take note - you need to run and run hard to beat the Republicans out of office in this county. They are the most crooked, back stabbing people on the block - and YOU (the taxpayers) are paying for their crookedness! I am a Republican, but I've seen these guys in action unfortunately and they need voted out!
Hey if no one runs against them what choice do the voters have? Go ahead try too I dare you! It's still a bunch of old school people backed by the old school money.
