I am sick and tired of the crap that goes on in this town that nobody seems to care about. For one there is a house on Baptist Street that the cops all know about but do not care enough to do anything about. I used to live down on the block and I have seen for my own two eyes many public officials that are either buying the dope or suppling it to them. There are so many "crack whores" running around looking for a "hit" and willing to do ANYTHING for it. Do you realize the amount of STD's that are out there and mostly because people are so wound up on this drug they are willing to do anything for it. The police in this town are all a bunch of Subway eating, donut hogging, coffee drinking, drug pushing SOB's that I would not piss on if they were on fire. Have you ever seen the movie 'Walking Tall', now thats what kind of justice that we need in this town, we need a REAL man to take over (like my husband) and boot the chief of police and the mayor both out on their a$$e$. Now everyone is entitled to thier own oppion and I am sure that this is going to stir up a bunch of shit, but I do not care. For the sake of the future of our children, something needs to be done.

You are a real moron! The reason the cops can't get anyone prosecuted is because nobody will testify against the drug dealers. Are you will to testify in court against them?

Have you thought about getting the Churches together and having people sing gospel songs in front of the houses that sell drugs while somebody is running a video? With all the Church people in this town I bet they could shut them down....and without bloodshed. I believe this crap could be stopped if everyone really wanted to shut them down!

There R several house on Baptist Street!

Let me tell you something. You do not live in Campbellsville, you do not see what goes on. I live in the neighborhood, and yes I will admit that I have been one of the ones who have complained about the house and the police still will not do a damn thing. And to the one who asked if I would testify, yes I would but hell it would not do any good, they would just smack him on the back and tell them not to do it anymore. So if you do not know what is going on then you need to shut up, unless you are a cop tring to pose as a citizen and in my opion you can kiss my a$$.

"Have you ever seen the movie 'Walking Tall', now thats what kind of justice that we need in this town" was typed by jbgalaxy. I did see the movie Walking Tall (the original one) and I also know someone who grew up in the very county of McNairy County, Tennessee. This person told me soon after the movie came out that even though that the sheriff was portrayed as a hero, he was actually the biggest crook that ever hit the county.

I put up with the same thing for months. I could call the police and before I could get off the phone they would be leaving. I went to the mayor and she gave me all these reson why they couldn't do anything. So I told her if the police couldn't do anything I could she told me I couldn't shoot them. I told her if they couldn't catch them as wide open as they ran that crack house they sure as hell couldn't catch me. They moved in less than two weeks.

I'm not excusing the fact that it seems like the cops are not taking the necessary steps to be in a position to make arrests, but do you have any knowledge of the legal system at all?? They can't just bust into someone's house without probable cause and they can't just make an arrest without a.) witnessing the crime or b.) having strong evidence to back it up (ie. undercover police). We all KNOW how successful the undercover police thing worked in Cville! So there you go.

The police need to follow the necessary steps to get these dealers off the streets. Maybe they are more focused on bigger fish, or don't have the manpower. Policing the streets is not only their responsibility, it is also the citizens'. This whole "Stop Snitching" BS needs to stop! I only know of one person that's actually been killed for it and the State Boys were in charge of that investigation. If you really want to do something for your community offer rock-solid evidence, or a means to get it, against these dealers (since you know so much).

It's amazing that nobody seems to want to step up to the plate! Just pass it on for others to do something about the problem when as a community we could stop it! The cops need witnesses that will testify against these people, or try it the other way.

The whole lot of you who are obviously not giving a crap because all you can do is say you need to do more, whaaaa, we have done more. I HAVE gone to the Mayor and she has turned her back, I HAVE gone to the County Attorney and they have turned their back, and I HAVE called the city police several times and talked to several different officers and the chief and still nothing. I even offered my help and they refuse to do anything. The only time I have ever seen a cop at this house to bust it, someone from the HQ must have tipped them off 'cause they "found nothing". BS, you would have to be blind or just plain stupid to not know what goes on and the citizens who live on Baptist St. are fed up with it all. I would not be surprised if someone took matters in their own hands and do away with it all.

We had the same problem. Heck, I got ready to call John Walsh of America's Most Wanted! Nothing was getting done, then praise the Lord they moved on. I would love to see one open up in Cox's Cove or Hidden Meadows! How about it crack heads?!

In Etown, when there was a problem in the Bottoms, a group took license plate numbers of the buyers.
Wonder if that would work here?
Of course, we'd have to have volunteers to sit on the corner and take plate numbers.
Why don't you ask YOUR church to furnish the gospel singers to sing in front of the houses in question. Or they could have prayer vigils.

I think everyone on Baptist Street knows what you are talking about and most of the people would like it to stop.
And I think all the druggies in town know about it too and they don't want it to stop.
We know the law knows about it.
Maybe doing the license plate thing would help.

Don't even think about taking anything into your own hands. You would do more time than the drug dealer would.

Oh....I don't know about the "observer", I just know I'm not a cop.
But haven't you noticed, the Governor is turning loose the offenders with "victimless crimes." If someone took something into their own hands, there would be a victim, and then that person wouldn't get turned loose.

Once upon a time the city of Campbellsville had a curfew for juveniles. Can anyone remember how it went?

Maybe if we all pray for one another and mind our own business and less of everyone elses then there would not be so many problems in Campbellsville/ Taylor County and other places.

If prayer were the answer, these places wouldn't exist. I'm not knocking prayer, but as Edmund Burke said,“The only thing needed for the triumph of evil is for good people to do nothing.”

If I remember the Gospels correctly, when Jesus took offense to crime in the temple he created a whip from some cords, drove out the livestock, scattered the coins of the money changers, and turned over their tables, and those of the people selling doves.

I believe that sometimes Jesus requires taking action in addition to prayer.
