Yep. We don't need no thug ex trooper terrorizing Knox County citizens. That is why Wilbur was re-elected so often. Even though he was a horrible and ineffective sheriff, he didn't have that trooper mentality to where you had to worry that he would draw down and shoot your kids or dogs like officers/ex-officers do so often these days. If we want a thug in the sheriffs office, we could just vote for Kyle Campbell instead.
Pickard is doing a fine job. I don't think its time to risk an untested person with the huge responsibility of being sheriff.
Agree doing a GREAT job!!!

I don't know where you live at but where I live at we still have to sit up and guard at night. We are always getting robbed in my neighborhood. Where is John when we needed him or his sorry deputies? They only come if the want to and only fill out a report if they want to if not they leave. They claim they can't finger print either but I read in local paper how one even boot printed someone. What a big change since I needed help now we boot print and finger print too. Its all in who you know and who you blow I guess. I say its time for a change it can't get any worse than it already is.

John Pickard is as bout as useful as tits on a bull! He has how many deputies and yes some of them are ex-troopers, and how long does it take to answer a call? 45 minutes to an hour is way to long! Warrants set unserved for months. His wife, sister in law and who ever else he is related to works in his office drawing salaries. The drug problem is just as bad as it ever was, except for the ones he picks & chooses to arrest. I'm guessing the family of 100 that's voting for Pickard would be the ones he looks over while they run their back door pharmacy! I don't know anything about Smith but I'm willing to give him my vote to change that mess that's in there now.

Thankfully I have never needed assistance from a law enforcement officer before. I am sure they all have their moments just as we all do and act like jerks. People that are on the right side of the law don't usually have problems with officers. Those on the other side have a problem with anything and everything that goes against them. I am grateful for police officers and others that put their lives on the line every time they go to work. They do this even for those that are ungrateful. Mike smith is a good person and comes from good people. He will do a fine job.

Mike Smith, would make an excellent choice. Has the experience. I have ask several people and comes highly recommended. We can expect him to work hard for Knox County, give him a chance. We took that chance when we elected the last. If he doesn't, vote him out in next election!

The difference in a KSP and county are they don't have to make friends while doing their jobs. They were hired by experience and knowledge of the law. That goes for all positions that are elected, they have to be nice in order to be re-elected. Officials should be real and tell it like it is instead of trying to be friends.
I'm tired of being told what people think I want to hear. If he is half the Sheriff that London has we will know within a few month after elected.
If elected and he let's family and friends slide he is busted. Just like all officials that help people and you don't read about it, it's not posted on jail tracker, but somehow in some cases you can get a Times newspaper and boom there it is.
If you want a friend, someone who will tell you how to set up a criminal, or just a shoulder to cry upon, get a friend.

My family is supporting Mike Smith. He is a good man. A fair man. And he is NOT a thug. He has the experience needed and will not forget where he has come from. He is the only choice...

First of all if I doubt anybody will make a better sheriff. Knox county needs a new county ordinance how alarm companies work in Knox county. To many times alarm companies give incomplete addresses where the alarm going off and this not the only problem sheriff department has. Mike will being looking as stupid if he is elected as current sheriff. He will be doing the same thing having deputies running up and down streets trying to respond to a alarm not knowing exactly where the alarm at. The current sheriff is not intelligent enough go before Judge Executive outlying what information is require for deputies to respond to alarms to be put in a ordinance to make their job easier. And I doubt Mike is not more intelligent.
