A stove pipe drug window? Go to the stove pipe, make your order, place your money inside, then grab the drugs as they come back out. Now, I guess the stove pipe drug door has quit smoking.

Well, I guess they finally stopped sleeping and eating doughnuts and actually went and busted someone. It's about time! Too many of these porkers get paid off by the drug dealers and turn the other way!

Well even though they may happen more frequently that what I first thought, it's still not enough. I guess if they really went after them they would have over 3/4s of Knox county caged in!

Said the same thing yesterday when the "raid" occurred... It's ELECTION TIME! Primary coming up with some stiff competition. By no means does this change my opinion of those arrested and those still doing what they're doing. Can't help but to form an opinion on strategy of Sheriff's Department. Just reinforces what I'm already factually aware of. My opinion though. Everybody has one, just like @ss-holes

Impressed with all the typing or copying and pasting. Then again, couldn't be copy and paste because you actually spelled OFFENSE correctly. LOL... And people wonder why we “Southerners” have a bad name? Actually, that's a sad mistake that someone in the Law Enforcement community couldn't spell OFFENSE/OFFENCE correctly in SO blog! Really sad. What do you think that's considered? A 3rd grade level error? Maybe 2nd grade literacy. Either way, c'mon!

Predictable polictical arrests, happens around every election so our officials can show what a great job they are doing. What most people don't know is John usually does his "round ups " on Fridays, and by Monday he does all he can to get them released, so he can look good on both sides of the fence. Just look at that Mills couple for example, this is the third time they have been "rounded up" on the same charges. Looks to me like if you are going to go through the months of investigating someone the least you could do is make the charges stick,otherwise what's the point?

All this drug bust did was got the little guys!!!! Some of them selling their own
Pills. When are they ever going to get the "big boys". The cocaine and heroin that is in our county? I agree election time and trying to make themselves look good. They got them some but it will not stop the drug pipeline in Knox Co. Didn't impress me at all. Unite is going to work harder and get the main drug dealers!

There is no difference in meaning between offence and offense. They're exactly the same in all their definitions. The difference is that offense is the preferred spelling in American English, while offence is preferred in British, Indian, Canadian, and Australian English

Uhh, Mack?? Fact is WE ARE AMERICA! Problem is WE are LESS than though, sad but true! I agree with Embarrassing it was Embarrassing!

Also agree with "got the little guys ". Problem is it is not really the big guys, it's the locals selling their pills prescribed by local Dr's. Somehow they have the system out smarted somehow with the monthly testing they attempt to perform. Obvious they are just wasting more of the governments money by doing so. They need to make the patients pay for it IMO. I have heard too many people talk smack how they take their meds 2 or 3 days prior to their Dr visit as prescribed so it somehow shows in their system. My opinion these Dr's are very aware of whats going on yet throw a blind eye and head turn since they need this extra testing for their pay, just sayin. If they really wanted to stop it, why not call them in for a urine test 2 weeks early with pills in hand for counting? Nuff said!!!

Money changes everything!

Yea yea they busted a couple dealers mostly small guys none of the big dealers. You see Pickard would loose all that drug money coming in from them if he did. Everyone knows that if you give him a big enough cut of the money your making from selling that he will leave you alone. How sad is that!!! I know people who have Never worked and honest day's work in their lives and they have more money and anything they want really. All they do is hustle and sell dope and all while there are children in the home. But you give the law a cut of your money and you are free to sell dope as long as you want. This was just the law trying to make theirselves look good. To bad everyone already knows how crooked they are around here. The knox county sherrifs dept. is a sad excuse and do not deserve to be called police officer's. They just play the game!!!!!
