Blairsville Police dept. You need people who are well rested to do that kind of work. If he needs an extra deputy why not hire one and give someone else a job and have a man dedicated to your own dept. I understand what your saying about benefits though.
Dumber than dirt.
You don't know much about police work, do you?
There isn't an officer who ever does a straight 40 and hits the gate or is well rested. Mack is learning the reality of UCSO and he'll be over budget just like every other sheriff.
Paint a pretty picture, don't you Mr. Thought.

Thanks for the clarification. Interesting twist and complication as well. Agree to some extent.

Should you obtain addition concrete reliable info, contributing toward a rational finding of increased benefit over liability in such reasoning, please let use know.

I see potential in various developments, but would like to know more of what is, in reality, going on.

Regardless of the naysayers, the Sheriff exhibits a Professionalism this County hasnít seen in around 15 years. Considering the obvious difficulties he inherited, and encountered upon taking office, I consider his first year an excellent one.

When it comes to police work I admit that I'm dumb as dirt but I do have a little common sense. If you don't come to work well rested then you aren't worth much and you need to move on. Any man that comes dragging in half asleep and just looking for a place to hide and get 40 winks isn't worth keeping. That is true in any business no matter the circumstance.

No. In fact you appear to be a reasonably smart fellow.

As we all witness here upon Topix there are many with that ďknow-it-allĒ syndrome that frequently contribute nothing of value to a conversation.

They simply make noise, negative comments, call names, and attempt to be as contrary as possible, as they insist in their attempt to create as much chaos as possible. Some are, and become more malicious than others, as they continue.

Eventually, a screen name becomes so untenable itís abandoned for another, and the process begins all over again.

I suspect you, as most of us, recognize who they are by now, and probably realize this is the only method they know to avoid facing the realities of the actions of the blaring misdeeds of themselves, and/or their Champions.

Personally, I find much agreement with your thought processes, as Iím sure may many others. I trust you will continue to provide your observations and scrutiny to us all.

No matter how anyone spins the facts, The new Sheriff's Office is better than the last and makes the Blairsville Dept.look like a bunch of pudgy and obese useless imbeciles.Flush the toilet and start over.

In fact most agree the New Sheriff has vastly improved Law Enforcement within Union County, both in Professionalism and Image.

Also, there is ample argument in the practically, particularly in a community with less than a total of 25,000 in population both Town and County, that it would be more feasible reasonable, and finically speaking to have one Law Enforcement Agency, and that such Agency should be under the authority of the Sheriff, as the elected Chief Law Enforcement Official.

I donít agree however in, what I consider the needless insensible characterization of the Officers.

Sure, many of us have been provoked by a less than profession, or insensitive Officer at one time or another.

Whereas, should your concern be truly for your well-being, or their health benefit, or both, then contact and discuss that with the Chief Administrator of the Agency.

After all these men and women are putting their lives on the line, for you and me, each and every day they pin on that Badge, leave their homes, and families and go out upon our streets on patrol to protect and serve our community.

Well we've made it a year with idiot Mason and the department is behind 5 years. Imagine what the next 3 will be like.. Although, he seems like he would be a good deputy as many as he stops in a weeks time. Why do we need the 40 something deputies when we have him? Who is running the office, oh wait, Florida idiots! He says they broke bread together, but how many do you locals know in the picture in the paper? Most of them are from Florida, in which one he had an affair with.. His picture in the paper every week helps the voters who voted for him! BUT when we had a real Sheriff and got the job done, he didn't want to publicized. Mason has gotten a few marijuana plants, which is fixing to be legalized, but where is the meth???? All he is doing is buying new vehicles which he said he would do periodically. The new chief has had 2... And he don't even patrol! Could you please tell me where 244 is going when he says he is going to district office??!! And as far as idiot Mason says, having grit in his crawl, why does he call for backup every time he stops someone?? He sounded like a little school boy the other day when a mustang might outrun him.. There are 5 deputies that go on a domestic between a father and son, when he said no deputy would leave their zone to back another up deputy..?? Sounds like some of that Miami Vice bull****!!! He talked about budget that was under Stephens but the boat was free and SWAT was free, which neither we have now. Now the budget is over a million dollars more than before because the commissioner granted it to make him look good. Re-elect Stephens!!!

Where do you get that has improved both in Professionalism and Image? But I do agree with what you say they are "putting their lives on the line, for you and me, each and every day they pin on that Badge, leave their homes, and families and go out upon our streets on patrol to protect and serve our community" 100%!!

At least this Sheriff isn't so embarrassed about his deputies he hides

them behind tinted glass in the patrol cars.

And poor ole Tom Porter, the last bedwetting clown left behind after the

last administration circus left town.

Maybe Tom will have a change of heart or his conscience will hurt and

he will come clean on all the missing equipment and guns toted off by

the last bunch.

You did get your share....right Tom?

And by the way Tom, seriously, Scott isn't coming back....ever, you

really just need to give it up. You're going to fret yourself to death.

Happy New Year

Mason's got rid of at least half of the bubba's just need to get rid of the rest. Had to many who thought they were Rambo and treated the residents of the county like dirt.

Hey, don't try to convince these fools - I think most are Floridiots or have a big chip on their shoulder against life.

What you are writing is accurate and true.

Ever read a good book then watched the movie based on the book? The movie is never as good as the book.
Stephens was a good book. Mason is like the bad movie but the same theme.

I don't know many of the officers these days but I do know they are rude SOBs - just like the rest of the Floridiots.
