My family has had a lot of problems with the Barling police department in the last year. It seems that some of their officers feel they are above the law and can do things like enter your home without a warrant, pull you over for virtually nothing, physically assault you and search your vehicle illegally and charge you with a crime you did not commit. This is America and we expect law enforcement officers to be public servants. This means they serve us,the taxpayers. Second, they must not violate our constitutional rights. They must remember, they work for us and are not above us!!!!! Someone must order an independent investigation of this police department to weed out the corruption!

I am Dee Powells' sister. I love her and Tracy! what ever happens between them is there personal business! They are NOT dead beats. As far as the police Department I couln't tell you anything. But obviously they are doing their jobs! Or the city council would had fired him. My sister is one wonderful sister, mother, wife, and friend. Their relationship is their business but there is NO NEED TO ATTACK MY SISTER CAUSE SHE IS VERY SWEET AND KIND. I hope you guys would have enough respect to at least add your name if your are going to criticize (MY SISTER) OR MY (BROTHER-IN-LAW....Cant you guys just get along!!!!

Do any of you that are talking bad about the BPD have any idea how many times a day they put their lives on the line for their community? With every traffic stop, warrent issued, drug bust, or domestic they go out on, they are putting their lives on the line. Not only their lives but the lives of their families if something should happen to them. It's easy to bash a group of people without walking in their shoes for a while. Bet no one responding to all of this would be willing to take a bullet protecting a stranger, like they do everyday. I'm proud of all of them, and think they deserve a lot more respect than they are getting.

I know full well what it's like to walk in their shoes. I am at Fort Chaffee everyday and believe my son could do a better job. Oh wait maybe he couldn't.....

If Tracy is cheating on his wife, he's just following the tradition of all Barling Police Chiefs. Rider would spend most days with his girlfriend while misappropriating city funds to buy pimp rims for the city cop cars. Not sure about Roth. Merrill was having "relations" with a drug addict in his police car while on duty. Can't blame Powell. It must be required of the postion.

When did Powell become worth a crap? That's news to me. There is hardly any difference between Barling and Chaffee.

Cops at Barling have been know to plant evidence for years. I think Tracey expects it. Him and Hardy from Chaffee you to do under handed crap all the time.

If you think Powell is a saint more power to you. But you who think this are probably running around Barling telling people you know the chief to seem cool.

But on second thought if you live in Barling, your a crack head loser any ways. So you deserve whatever the cops do to you.

I heard they brought a foreign language into Barling schools. Its called English.

Tracy does what he can to police a town filled with half good folks and half the dregs of society. If he would recognize that several of his offcers are doing everything they can to sink his agency it would help.

I have lived in Fort Smith my entire life and have been pulled over 1 time and issued a warning for speeding.. I go to Barling maybe 3 or 4 times in a year and have been pulled over there numerous times and even had my car searched twice which resulted in nothing being found. They are full of shit the police there need to be removed and a division of fort smith police patrol the area.

You may not like the chief, so what does he do a good job? Do his
Men answer the calls? I support the Barling PD, good job guys.
Be safe when 10-8.
Hey ya. You think that if I wore a T-shirt that said GO BARLING! on the front and WHERE NOT EVERYONE IS A DRUG DEALER OR CRACKHEAD! on the back that I might offend anyone in particular?

Thanx,Sharon

So you know the chief and his wife and you think its morally wrong to knock back some strange.
Who sets the morale code? What your church? A place you go to seek guidance from somerhing
You can even prove exsist? Really. You saw the chief as the casino, was he working? Maybe he was
Making a contact with a criminal? Does he work in other communities? You mean he gets drugs off
The street in central city and that doesn't help Barling? Really. Drugs grown in Greenwood, Central
Fort Smith are used in Barling. it looks like the bad guys are afraid to grow or make their
Drugs in Barling because of the tough cops. You complain about a dog barking, who cares its a dog.
Don't bother the police with a barking dog, get your balls off the mantle and go next door and ask your
Neighbor about the dog. It's apparent that you are so weak minded that you need someone to do your stuff
For you. You go to church because your to feeble minded to make your own way, you need the police to talk
To your neighbor, you want someone to tell the chief its not right to see other women. Why don't you go
And do any of these things?
Weak, very weak
Until I read your post, I'd never heard of the term "knock back some strange. So, I looked it up. Nothing resulted in the full term, so I had to break it down into "knock back" and "some strange". "Knock back" has two meanings. 1. At some cost to you. 2. Pastry: To punch down the dough so it will rise again.
"Some strange": 1. Is the name of a Band. 2. Wicked uninhibited sex. How did you learn this phrase? Or did you coin it?
