It will take the support of the voters of Knox County. We have to come together and attend the Fiscal Court meetings to voice that we want jailtracker back. If enough people does that together it will show them that we really want it back.

Other than that all we can do is vote the Fiscal Court, Sheriff and Jailer out of office. Even by doing that we have to depend on the people we vote in to lift the jailtracker blackout.

I'm wondering why is jailtracker so important to you guys?

I find it strange that this is such an important topic that you'd vote people in and out over this, and not because of what they can do good for the community. Forget the drugs and what the sheriff has done there. Vote him out because we cannot view a website that was never much use to begin with except to be nosey and help hurt people more than they were already hurt.

I like to look at Jailtracker, too. Don't get me wrong. But its a well known fact that jailtracker has been abused in many communities and caused a lot of people a lot of harm. Barbourville is one of those communities. It's believed that jt has cost people their livelyhoods, the support of their peers, and even their lives. And many times unfairly.

So why is jailtracker so important to you guys?

The tax payers have payed for the jailtracker equipment and are still paying for jailtracker services. Since tax payers are paying the bill it should be their decision and not the Fiscal Courts. If the jail wasn't using the system and could not afford it I would understand but that is not the case for they use it everyday. If they are going to use it then we should have access to it just as before. After all it is public information that we are entitled too.

If going to jail hurts anyone's reputation then it is their own fault.

I guess you've never heard of innoncent people going to jail because someone said they did something, then the world finds out that it was all a lie and the person never did anything. Then their face and charges are posted on jailtracker forever, and the world believes what is on there, but it does not show that all charges were dropped and the person who brought the charges lied.

This is true. Anyone can go pay $20 and get a warrant on someone for nothing.

I have to respectfully disagree with you.

Tax payers money pays for police cars, but that does not give you the right to go out and drive one of them. It gives you the right to enjoy the protection the police give you by them having those cars.

Your tax money buys the guns and bullet proof vests that our police wear. That does not give you the right to go borrow the gun and bullet proof vest. But you get to enjoy the protection the police give you by them having those items.

Your tax money pays for the jail tracker equipment. That does not give you the right to that service. But you get to enjoy the protection the police give you by them having jailtracker to make their jobs easier, giving them more time on the streets, and gives them certain info at the click of a button.

I believe the entire conversation that we'll vote people in and out because jail tracker is off shows how silly and corrupt politics are. We're not voting for the people who are going to do the best job of keeping drugs off our streets, or our schools safe. Instead, we're willing to vote people out, and other people in, to get jail tracker back on for the public to be nosey.

Now, again, I love looking at jailtracker, too. But only because I'm nosey and I like to see who was arrested and what they did. But it's not helping me any. It's just giving me an easier way to be nosey.

Why do they put the arrested people in the Mountain Advocate then?

Your argument is all true but if I felt the way you do everything I own would belong to the government and i'm just renting it. Politicians are elected into office by the people to provide services. Not to become dictators and put their will ahead of the wants of the people that have hired them. Taxes are paid by the people to provide for those services. We hired the Politicians and we can fire them, you can believe me that I will be voteing against every one of them. I will also be talking to other people and encouraging them to do the same.
