He no longer works there for that very reason, so the sheriff did the right thing. And about the judicial system, well, that's a whole other thing and the sheriff's dept has nothing to do with that.

The Sheriff should have been charged also,he tried to say there was no crime commented,that he had investigated it.The sheriff new all along what had went on.randal ward will lie to you,he will tell u one thing then turn around and do the opposite.This county needs a NEW SHERIFF.

AMEN hmm! I guess spell check doesn't come with the keyboard. Ignorance!
As for Nunnelly boy-can pretty much tell you've been locked up before by your comment. So why don't you keep it 21 and tell the real truth on what happens behind closed doors. Tell about how inmates rape inmates, throw feces and urine on officers, make up huge lies to get rid of an officer that does their job-all because it cuts into your private time with your cellie, or they busted you for dealing dope, tats, or other contraband. Yes what the jail administrator did was wrong but before you go casting stones like the big window warrior you present yourself to be, be real about what really happens when the bars close behind you.

Querty, Randall Ward did not fire him,he resigned he didn't have a choice after being indited now did he? Jerry Wasden is also a racist I was at a restaurant one time when he was there and there was some African American people that came in and he said to the waitress "Are you going to wait on them?" She said yes they are paying customers just like you and he said cancel my order and walked out.I swear on the bible that this did happen.

The Sheriff cannot control what others do, this is unfortunate this happened. The guy is no longer there, and he will face the consequences. I do believe he needs to get a "outsider" to fill this position. Someone who is not involved in the political arena in Centerville.

RoboCop,The people that apply for a deputy job knows what the job consists of, that does not give them the right to do whatever they want to to the inmates.I have always heard that what goes around comes around I hope that when all that bunch gets caught up in all their criminal activities that they get treated the same way that they have treated people in jail see how they like it!

Right on, "know your job". Poor inmates. How dare anyone treat those rapists, pedophiles, thieves, crooks, and murders badly. Darn them! Maybe they can come stay with you. I'm sure you could treat them like the royalty they are.:/

Hey you, idiot. I live with one! He is a hard working man that goes out everyday unknowing what the day may bring. He does this to protect and serve people like you and me...many he doesn't know. I worry everyday if he will come home or not. Are all of the officers angels? Obviously not. That's no reason to label them all that way. If you are going to do that, then we should get rid of all doctors BC some have been charged with malpractice. We should get rid of all priests BC some have raped children. We should get rid of all teachers BC some have been convicted with statutory rape. What about nurses, too. One just got busted for using dirty needles and causing people to be infected with hepatitis. Your argument is not valid. I'm sure there are some crooked individuals within your workplace. Does that make YOU a crooked evil person? I'd say be reasonable, but it is obvious that you are incapable of using that thing on your shoulders before opening your mouth.

I didnt say all the deputies are like that,but all the inmates are not rapists and killers either what I am saying is there are some deputies that are just as bad as the criminals that are in jail,some people are in jail for minor things and there are a lot of deputies that are doing much worse that are runninng the streets prentending to protect the people of Hickman CO,when all they are doing is hurting them for instance riding around in a patrol car while drinking I cant help if this strikes a nerve if whoever you live with does his or her job right then this shouldn't have anything to worry about.

Well first, you label half of the DEPUTIES as "pedophiles,rapists, thieves, and crooks". That's very vague. Who exactly are you referring to? Labeling" deputies" or even "half" of them is completely unfair. Especially to the ones who do their job. Secondly, the "deputy" you refer to riding around in a patrol car isn't even a deputy. I know exactly who you are referring to, as his name has been called out numerous times on topix, and he is NOT a deputy. He works for a completely different department. There were some rotten apples in the sheriff's department: Smith and Barnett definitely come to mind. They no longer work for the sheriff's department. "My deputy" does his job and he he does it well, but when you put your vague statements online without calling out any particular deputies or officers, then it makes them all appear bad, WHICH IS NOT THE CASE. I assure you, I know exactly what I am talking about. You sir or madam seem to be talking more out of your rear than anything. I, and I am sure some others, will continue to see it this way unless you can present some damn facts to back up your critical statements. Let's clarify another thing, I never stated that ALL inmates are rapists or killers either. Crooks, thieves, pedophiles are the terms I used, or anyone else I forget to mention like your drug dealers and prostitutes. You make it as if these INMATES, who were obviously put in jail for a reason, are great people. Not necessarily. They are there for a reason aren't they? Obviously not too honest of people.

If you think the deputies in this county are honest you need to think again!I know Brandy Sullivan searched a underage girl when another officer telling him he shouldn't be doing that,but do you think that stopped him?What about Ricky Harness who got caught caught taking things out of the evidence room?Did he get arrested? That is stealing,he should have been fired!The The lawyer Flannagen ask him why he was taking evidence home with him when he had to pass by the jail to get to his house,when they drug tested him and he failed did he get fired?His wife even though she is not a deputy overdosed she is still working.This is the kind of people Hickman Co.chooses to hire it's pityful,everybody covers each other butt.This county makes me sick!

You really are a f***king idiot. Did I say all of them are honest? No, I did not, but they all aren't doing wrong either. The Sullivan thing doesn't surprise me. I'm not a fan. There have been numerous rumors about the Harnesses that even "my deputy" doesn't know if it is true or not. So if that is being covered up then its being done so by those directly involved. My point is (and has been) that it is completely unfair to label them all as dishonest when many work their asses off. You called out rumors pertaining to only two deputies when there are how many deputies? That's my point.

If you are ever robbed, raped, or assaulted, who the hell are you going call? I hope its not these officers you are so quick to point fingers at since you don't think well of them.

Robo Cop,If all this goes on in the cells,then somebody seen it,what does the guards do sit back and watch it? What exactly is a guards job? Why dont they put a stop to all that? They probably like to watch it seems like thats all Hickman Co. hires is perverts!You must be front row and center since you know so much about what all goes on in such detail!

One reason I know about what all the deputies do,is because I once was married to one.He is still employed with Hickman Co.He told me about all the corrupt thing that went on if all of these things were found out by certain people they wouldn't be any deputies left,because they would all be in jail.You don't know everything that goes on,unless you go to work with him!I know that there are deputies that buy pot,there is one that sells pain pills that are taken from people that are pulled over.One of them is always trying to get underage girls to go out with them,I am not talking about Seeback either, I am talking about a deputy. I cant think of any of the deputies that he didn't know something on them,I am not going to write a book naming every deputy and what they were doing,but they all cover up for each other.I agree with the other person,what these deputies do is just as bad as what some of the people they arrest. If I was selling pain pills, I would get arrested,but some of the deputies do it every day,but I guess it makes it ok because they wear a badge.

I am not sure about officer Sullivan because I was not there at the time of this alleged search, and from my guess...Neither were you. Unless you have witnessed things with your own eyes then dont talk or speculate about them.Brandy Sullivan might be an ass, but I doubt he is a chester child molester, which would be how you are making him sound by implying that he frisk an underage girl. That makes you no better than all the other gossips in this town. Ricky Harness is my father and this is the first time I have heard of any taking of any evidence or about him failing any drug test. My mother is Lorye Harness. You know nothing about her situation or the hell that she has been put through over the last year.And no my mother is not working. She is on medical leave. You have a right to your opinion, but I have the right to mine also. This county might very well make you sick, but people like you make me sick. I may despise cops, but I am not on here judging and blasting them. They have a job to do. They are people just like anyone else. They do good and they do bad. And you can slam me all you want on here. Its the internet. BIG deal. You might be sassy or whatever you want to call your self, but it sounds to me like your no better than all the other loud mouth lying gossips that are in this town. Get your facts straight. And by the way...My dad and I dont even speak so you cant say that I am defending him because of my parantage. I am defending him because I know the kind of man he is. He may be a man whore but he sure isnt a damn druggie. And speaking of which...is that why you dont like him? Did he bust you or a loved one with your not so legal meds? Just saying.... And since your name is sassy, you might as well call me bitchy. Nice to meet you

For your information I was there when the underaged girl was searched,but she was not my daughter and Brandy Sullivan was so quickly to point out that he was the law he could do whatever he wanted.As for your father I think he has enough druggies in the immediate family to worry about two of them are always getting admitted to rehab and thats about all you hear about that, they never spend any amount of time in jail both draw disability checks dont take care of their kids I think you know who I am talking about,thats what gets me if you are going to do a job do it right this pick and choose crap on who you are going to charge is BULLSHIT.

You know something Sassy, you say you have something on every deputy in Hickman County. I say Bullshit. There is a reason you are no longer married to your ex-husband, because your a bitch. If you have so much dirt on the Hickman County Sheriff's Office go to the TBI or hell the hell up!!!!!!!!
