Yes we read the Headlines of the Paper today. All of it will come out in time. What has happened is water under the bridge and cant be un-done. I agree with the lotto thing. i seen him at the Graham Mart playing lotto some times too. People get addicted to that stuff and cant stop. Its not worse than others and their drugs. I think most of it just come from the burn out that you get in EMS. Anyone that works it knows enough to know that YOU HAVE got to let it go. But I will say this. EMS workers see far more Death and Dying and Abuse than most anyone I know of. It is not easy to go on after some of the calls we run. If you ever go to a home and there is a Mother and a 4 year old laying in the yard dead from gun shots by a Father/Husband and he is still barley alive. It takes everything in you to do the JOB that you are there to do. no on would WANT to try to save him..BUT ITS YOUR JOB. We see so much, all hours of the day and night and see people usually at their worst moments in life. So please do not use this one incident to label us all.
Long time comming

I can say he will do anything to anybody to stay in control of the squad. Don"t get in his way and he is a nice guy. Ask past members about the real Tommy Carrol

"Go Figure" how can you even attempt to equate embezzling money for your own personal use to burn out on the job from seeing too much death. He is suspected of violating the public trust and therefore a thorough investigation is needed and the public has the right to be informed. Perhaps the arrogance and "greater than thou" attitude that he shows to the public warrants a bit of gloating by those he duped.

I was relating the possible Gambling habit that was mentioned to the burn out. Not the "alleged" taking of the money. I as much as anyone agree that is totally wrong.

Scratch offs finally did him in he wasn't satisfied with his salary he awarded himself extra perks, walk over top of you without even speaking, i guess that was guilt at what would ultimately happen a indictment, attorney fees, plea bargain and total embarrassment, shame on you we always thought you were honest, get your head out of the clouds and prepare for the future whatever it may be.

This is a classic example of why I hate the local media. They are always reporting issues of this nature before facts are presented. This type of behavior always yields a guilty verdict from the court of public opinion before this man has his day in court.

Word to wise: don't always believe what you read/hear about in the news. The media is out to sell advertising through ratings. They do that by selling a lot of hype with a grain of truth.

You got that right!!!!They print what they think will sell....And if its got anything to do with Bluefield Va you can bet it'll be the headlines, but only if its bad...You news people need to learn when you tell a story tell the trueth, you have ruined so many lifes with your untrueths, wonder how it would feel if the shoe was on the other foot for once....I work in EMS and i have seen you print stories on things i have been on that never even occured or even said...PLEASE if your gonna do that job then get your facts right before you cause serious damage and get someone killed or hurt....As far as the other goes, he hasn't been convicted of anything yet so do us all a favor and spread your gossip else where....Give the man his day in court, as the saying goes "Innocent until proven quilty"

Yea most of you are right, innocent until proven guilty. But watching all the employees live from paycheck to paycheck, and no raises, while he gambles hundreds of dollars a day, no Im not feeling sorry for him, I hate it for his family. But how long does people have to keep telling others that he was spending way more money that squad people make, it not rocket science. He should of cared about his employees and his community, but instead he treated them awful, and I never seen him living from paycheck to paycheck, those people had to trust him and he let them and this town down. So, please dont quicken on these people who are letting their feelings be heard, because they dag gone couldnt say them while he was in charge or he would get rid of them, he ran off three good medics, and then put the others there trying to cover, and that takes a toll on their health. Thanks for listening citizens of Tazewell county.

Living on the WV side in a house that cost way over what a person making 50,000.00 a year could afford. Driving the squad vehicle every where he went,even to buy his lotto tickets. Talking trash to people who called the squad for help, and passing judgement on them about being "drug-seeking" "or not "being sick enough for an ambulance" and "wasting the squads time". Nobody on this site has said anything that would damage his reputation worse than what it was. He took care of that himself.

First of all the house he lives in is not his it is his sister n laws house that lives out of town so get your facts right before speaking, and most people that have a company vehicle drive it everywhere, and the lotto everybody plays it. So you talk about him judging people, what the hell do you think you are doing, that's right judging him for the stuff you have no clue about. So i pitty you on judgement day.

So were you there when he gambled hundreds of dollars in one day, probably not. So you don't know for sure if he bought a dollar or 5 dollar ticket get real. And yes they were good medics but they didn't want to show up and do their job right.

Wish I had a sister-in-law that generous.I looked at the house when it was up for sale, so I know what the price tag was. As for company vehicles,I and most other people who have vehicles provided by our employers drive them on COMPANY business. Don't see to many police officers driving their "company vehicles" to the movies or grocery stores after hours. A lot of people do play the lotto games. Maybe 2 or 3 tickets when they stop to get gas. Fortunely for the citizens of Bluefield this is a case based on facts.If money he was in charge of is missing and cannot be accounted for, the investigators will be able to figure it out. People can speculate, talk about it, take up for him, condemn him or whatever, but the facts will speak for themselves.

You didn't hit no nerve, and glad you know the price of the house congratulations, but the house is for when they retire and move back to bluefield. It's not his house so think what you want oh that's right you don't like hearing that you assumed something wrong. And hun i've seen police officers off duty driving there cruisers around for personal use, so lets not go there. Just think if it was you and it can very easily happen.

Ok and that will solve what? Nothing, and what about the people that still work there. They don't deserve to be treated like crap because of what someone else did...How is that fair to them? There are still good people that work there, and they don't deserve to lose their jobs...Look if you go back and check every squad has been thru it, Princeton and Bluefield both and now look at them..They are doing fine and so will Va..Give them time to sort things out before passing judgement on the ones who had no control over what happened...They still come to work everyday and try to get past all the crap you people talk, to do what they love...So next time you see one tell them what a good job they are doing instead of puttin them down for what they had no control of...I for one am proud of them for keeping their heads up and continuing to do their jobs...TO THE EMPLOYEE'S OF BLUEFIELD VA RESCUE SQUAD....hOLD YOUR HEADS UP AND BE PROUD OF WHAT YOU DO...MAWY GOD BLESS YOU ALL

For "Really People". You need to go back and slowly read all the posts before posting your sarcastic remarks. You seem to think that the same person is making all the posts. As for the remark that was made to the person from Welch, which was aimed at me, we've all heard his story about how the house belongs to a cousin, uncle, brother, sister, or whatever. Even so, I rather doubt this family member is paying all the bills for him to live there. Living in Bluefield WV is not cheap. Been there and done that. He is welcome to play the lotto all he wants as long as it was his money, on his time. For the sake of propriety he could have done it after work hours, out of his squad uniform and in his own vehicle. As for the other statements I made regarding his "judging" persons calling the squad, I will stand by them as I have first hand knowledge.

I was a former member,he talked shit about people he would pick up, yes he was good at using that Jaws of life to get people free, but he was awful on patient care and yes he did lable patients. You people talk good about him, but talk to the people that worked under him, calling them "fat asses, dumb asses, and other cruel stuff. But what he did to that Dishmon guy was damn wrong, and what he did to his employees was just as wrong, using sqaud fund to drive all over and to take vacations with all his family, paid for by the squad was really wrong. So dont tell me to get my facts straight, you need to get your facts straight. You know Dishmon was a great medic, Ive seen save countless lives, nobody seems to remember that, and so has gail and evans. The board members need to bring back Dishmon and get our town squad runned right for a change, and if anyone needs to be a hometown hero, its Dishmon, for GOD sake people, lets get some support behind that man and behind that squad, they can come back strong, but I will not support them if they dont try to bring back Dsihmon and that Evans boy. People of Bluefield Virginia, wake up, Evans,Dishmon, and Gail can rebuild that squad and be life savors not money takers. By the way, Tommy Carroll was one of the worst EMTs I have ever seen, so you people need to wake up and read these comments and lets get that rescue squad back up to a great squad, and maybe you need to read the letter that a poerson wrote about her treatment, then died and was brought back by the hospital, not that damn crew. Sorry to be so bold, but you people need to wake up and if you are not there, deep your mouth shut about what those workers there are going thru. For GODS sake, talk up for those people, and dol something right, instead of seeing a person just on his nice side, fake is minutes projected, but lives saved are seen and documented. Thank you, sincerely one past member with the right to speak the TRUTH!!!By the way I have been reading all these Topix, and you just dont know everything, secrete lies are forever, till BUSTED!!

u know what maybe u need to look at ur own skills there bud because if u r a former memeber there is reason! I am a memeber there and have been for 7 years and have ran wit tommy countless times and tommy was a damn good emt so maybe ur just jealous he wouldn't let u run wit him! Yeah DISHMAN (this is how u spell it) was a good medic when he didn't take 6 months off for something that only should have been 6 weeks, and evans yeah he was good too when he wasn't yelling at emt students in front of patients because they didn't know how to do something he was supposed to do! And if u r a former memeber then how can u even know what going on there right now so umm maybe u wanna check ur facts before u start bashing somebody cause u weren't lucky enough for him to teach u anything!
