There is alot more men and women living in Bruceville on Meth and other types of drugs. There is also many children right in the homes with them...everyone that lives here in Bruceville know most of these users) and it is not just Sarah) and never turn them in, on the other hand many of us have and nothing has been done about it...really now...she was arrested for Marion County??? Our police officers are turning their heads the other way....Knox County needs a major investigation!

To this town resident who is not brave enough to back up what they say, so to me this is small town jealousy. My son is th emost kind, considerate, and compassionate person I have ever met, not because he is my son but because he is. If you have ever heard that it takes a whole village to raise a child, you must have been to insolent to comprehend. My son graduted with his High School diploma, continues his education, and holds down a full time job. He has had no Father in his life because when Trey was 13 years old his father no longer had any involvement only beating him. Trey has overcome, but lives with these scars forever, the hurt will never go away. So im sure you have no idea the hurdles he overcame personally as to not internalize and then project this hurt which then is shown outwardly as anger. To the writer of this comment he made it, simplified for you...understand. Trey's Father is in arrearage of child support of 14,000 dollars , we do not live off of the state and Knox Co has NOT enforced the very order they wrote. We maintain through our hardships and bad choices I have made with the best relationship ever written. So to you i give the rasberries and hope you research the issue of KARMA, I don't have to exhaust myself on these thoughts, this is something that will just come to you. Sara Lankford

Hang in there Sara and get through this. I don't know why you went down the wrong path. I do know you were a person I respected and could trust to cover my back when we worked together. Being the person you are, no doubt you will get your life turned around.

First. Knox county courts and DA needs an overhaul and has for a long time. Unless you have something to offer them you will not get any help.
I have an ex that was ordered 87 a week for 4 kids for many years. I actually got a major increase when i filed to move to CA. i am sure they did that so they would not look terrible. I went to 117 for 4 then. CA raised it to 950 just for 3. major increase hmm So the IN courts screw women. as for my 8000 in back pay he has the rest of his life to pay me back.
I receive child support when he loses his job and he gets unemployment. Yes ladies Knox county gave him a felony he was out in about a year. So that did little to help either.

So as for the meth homes. yes the DA knows who they are. they police do also. I would take a guess that are saying the crime is not severe enough yet. Although we are saying let's prevent it. they are saying the jail and juve'e are ful and the state is broke.

It doesnt matter how many kids you have - ITs alll about who gets to court first.
That is the person who gets 20% and the ladies next in line collecting
support for multiple children get 10%.

Meth is a disease that will steal your soul, your self respect, your children, and your life... If you are on the other side- it will steal your family, your friends, any other person and turn them into someone you don't recognize and can't trust.

It has no benefits and it increases hopelessness in everyone it touches.

I see no reason to speak ill of those who have this addiciton.

I do however believe that every effort should be made to get in these homes and help these people and to intervene before the problem ever has a chance to take root. Someone has to protect the children involved in these situations- and unfortunately when you are influenced by meth your judgement is not at it's prime. Law enforcement can't walk that line without screwing it up.

An addiction should not be criminal- it should be treatable but that intervention has to come early- prior to the onset of criminal behavior and irresponsible decision making that follows an addiction.

There is no manual on doing that- How can we possibly- reasonably- do that? I don't know that it's possible.

I hope that Sara gets a hug and I hope that more than that she gets support without judgement. And I hope that while she works to build her life back she realizes that she is worth so much more than the high that meth gives.

Sara~ I hope you kick meth's A$$!!!

I dont think Sara or her son are even trying to get off drugs. As long as she is still running the streets she will do anything to get her meth anyone one on meth as bad as her needs a dramtic change in thier lives to get clean (like getting locked up). Also, to the comment you dont live off the state you dont work so how do you pay your bills? I am sure she has got an answer for that too, I would like to hear it. Good luck!!

Town Resident - knock it off. You seem to be a mean and vindictive person. Why kick someone when they are down? Does that make you feel big and powerful?

No kidding. The measure that you use will be used for you.
Get a life. Why would you want to publish that type of hateful crap on the internet (or anywhere else)anyway? It doesn't do anything to make you look like a bigger person, but rather the reverse. It makes you seem very small.

Sara,
I,myself too came from an abusive home.The abuser being my mother.I know the emotional scars it leaves behind.I want your son to know how proud i am that he has achieved so much in life.Do not let any of these comments stand in your way of overcoming your problems.The eople who wrote those rude comments are of satan.He is using that person to keep you chained to the addiction.I think you did a fine job with your son.I never got past my pain.You keep that head held high,and do not let these awful comments get you down.That person wants to say hurtful things to keep you from changing.My email is:toofun4u1971@yahoo.com if you ever need a true friend to talk to.May god bless you with the strength to forgive this person,and walk beside in the trials you have in life.

Unfortunately and with great sadness, I will have to retract any support I have had for Sara. She has allowed harm or been a part of it to those I care about. This is quite disturbing as I have defended her to so many people the past few years. Maybe it is time for me to admit the Sara I once knew is gone. Which is a tragedy because she had been a wonderful person. However, I will have great memories of the woman she once was and someone I previously admired.

Incredible the power of prayer.. I don't think I know her but I've been close to where she is, have friends that have been there and have come out (BEST friend from Vincennes kicked it and is now ((MUCH more than)) okay). I'm sure she's still worth prayer and if she ever lets God help her, she could be more than she ever was.

We're all pretty wicked when you think about it.

Happy New Year!!(You too Sara..all you have to do is ask..:)
