Really? In case you forget, Jerry Phifer went to prison. And he was only busted on one of many things that he was involved in.
I'm not comparing Tony to Jerry. I think Tony is a better sheriff than Jerry was. Just saying your stupidity once again shines through if you think Jerry was a good sheriff. How could you think...oh wait, Phifer was a Democrat. Silly me...I forgot the stupid woman is all about party instead of the man.
I doubt that you even lived here when Jerry Phifer was Sheriff and I think all you know about him is the gossip and rumors you've been told, which is very unreliable. Did you live here when Jerry Phifer was Sheriff? Or are you just repeating gossip?

I might add that Jerry had alot of Supporters in this County as well as other Counties. When he died, there was a very long line of Law Enforcement Vehicles from practically everywhere in his Funeral Procession and that was years after he was Sheriff.
He did more good for this County than he did bad, by far...and paid a heavy price for doing it!
If he was still sheriff, alot these "Troublemakers" would have been shut down a long time ago, because he wouldn't have tolerated all their BS in this County!

if jerry phifer is deceased what does this have to do with him. so he got into trouble 20 or 30 years ago. that all in the past. we are talking about right now about our current sheriff tony king. i was not there so i dont know what happened but tony king has been good to me.

Jerry Phifer was not only my friend he was my cousin
as well. In his lifetime Jerry was a friend to
many. Whenever I talked to Jerry on the phone he always ended the conversation with the words "If
you need anything let me know" thats the kind of guy
he was. Always willing to help friends if he could.
Sure Jerry made some mistakes in his life,he was
only human,however he paid for those mistakes and
not only by going to prison but in other ways as well. Jerry is gone now and his time as Sheriff
exists only in the memory of his friends and as
benton county history,let the man rest in piece
Please.

After the sexual harassment lawsuit and now this, I don't know how any intelligent individual would be ok with their tax dollars going to pay for this man's salary. I have a feeling this isn't going to blow over any time soon.

You are apparently someone that wants to run against Tony or has been arrested by him. He is a good sheriff that is accessible to all of the people, unlike many of our former sheriffs, and he will be in office as long as he wants to be.

Funny, I didn't remember which Party Ticket Tony ran on, but you sure did. That tells me that you're more concerned with getting a Teapublican elected Sheriff than you are in having a good Sheriff elected, regardless of their Party affiliation!

Well I think people who had law enforcement experience would be better than guy whose previous job was tow truck driver. Just like every other elective office in Benton County. It not what you know but who you know. if you have a name or connection you can be dumber than a box of rocks and get elected to county commission or mayor or whatever. None of the people running our county would be qualified to run for dog catcher in a REAL city.
after two terms in office i think he has alot of experience and as someone said he gets out on the street with his men/women does not
stay behind the saftey of his desk. he did not get my vote the first time he ran but he did the second time.

Disposed in this suit, under oath this Deputy now says he NEVER saw Sheriff King strike this man with a flashlight. He said the flashlight laying by his head. The deputy must have thought his personal problems with the sheriff warranted perjury.

Well not all of it is false information and I think that this is very important for the voters to know about the current sheriff. The voters need to know that because of his actions the county may be paying off ANOTHER law suit.....just think about when we all go to the voting booth. I also will be thinking about a question I have asked many times before...what about that brand new black sheriff's car and chief deputy's truck?? Money well spent????????

You can talk all the bs you want but Tony King will win Christopher and Stewart will split the Tony King haters vote. Personally i think Kenny Christoper would be the best pick but he wont win in a three man race. Tony will stay in till he decides to retire. Bend over and get use to it.
