People struggle with addiction every day of their life. The government does not help people who suffer with their disease. A lot of ignorant people such as you, Chris. No one deserves to be burnt and in pain. Johnny has hurt his self and has no intentions of hurting anyone. I am most certain you are not a saint. Don't judge others. God is our only judge. Thank God he loves us all and forgives us. Police and drug enforcement agencies dont make things any easier on people who want and need help. Some of them do nothing but try to make your life harder. I had a lax in my own judgement a while ago. You would never know it to see me now, but I could be the nurse standing over you one day. Your life could be in my hands. If it was me who was in the explosion, and you said I deserved it. Would you still feel the same way, when you were depending on me. Just goes to show you, you can judge people. You dont know what could happen.

Drugs are bad. There is no denying the fact that people who get addicted to drugs have an issue or a "disease", however, they don't hit that pipe not knowing there exists a high chance of an addiction evolving. Most people, regardless of how educated or not, know that there is the chance that they will have an addiction. So they still do it. Ultimately it is their own fault because they made the decision. Yet some others would argue that the addicts are getting our youth addicted to it as well. Good point to also be considered. So as long as these people are roaming free making their highly explosive homemade chemistry set, there exists a chance that somehow this will effect you or your family. How terrible would this be if your neighbor was producing this drug, which are made from some of the most random products including cleaning chemicals that you can go down to the Dollare General to pick up, would if their lab explodes? There goes their house and if you live too close there goes yours. If you have kids, you have to be afraid of what effect the lab or drug itself could have on their life. Someone who is on that stuff knows if they have a problem or not it is just a matter of whether they care about their own life enough to get help.

So ultimately my point is: Think about it before you open your mouth. You know you would be just as ticked off as anyone else if this in some way would effect you. People like that should be found and arrested so that they are not on our streets.

What in the hell is there to judge, Karen? Who I might ask first before I get started........do you have any split personalities called Erica, Vanessa or Catherine lurking around? Are you a relative also? These addicts know perfectly well the risks of addiction before they even use Meth. They also know the danger they are putting themselves as well as others in. From the moment they begin to make or use Meth, they forfeit all rights of being helped by the government. I don't like paying my hard earned money on taxes that are applied to any program to help drug addicts. Noone may deserve to be burnt or go through that type of pain.....but this fact certainly didn't measure into the picture when they were making their meth and it exploded, did it? They could have cared less about anyone but themselves!!! I'm not going to worry too much about you ever being my nurse because from what you say about having a lax in judgment not long ago, I'm inclined to believe that you were convicted of a drug felony by which you would be unable to go into nursing. So sweetcheeks, get off your sanctimonious, self righteous high horse.

And Chris, you certainly are not the ignorant here......Karen a.k.a. whoever is.

Hickman couty sheriff dept, Centerville Pd, and the 7 elected constables of hickman couty combined is not enough man power to combat the flow of drugs. There is so much that goes on here that nobody knows about. When you are looking at 2-4 deputies working the entire couty at night, you can run a drug convoy through, or make meth on the town square when everybody is on call elsewhere.

You mispelled county, but you are correct. Every department in Hickman county needs at least triple the officers that it has now. And the SO and PD needs a reserve officer/deputy program to help out when they are short. If the county legislative body would come off of the funds to make this happen instead of having to be sued by the sheriff again, that would be great.

I have seen to much of the "good ole boy" system at work here. I know people that that live in Hickman county that are more than qualified to be a deputy/officer and have passed the police academy, but make more money and have better benifits than a small department can provide. They want to give up their own time to work as a reserve officer/deputy. But they are told that no program is available. Or told that the county legislative body wont allow a program. However there are "special deputies" and reserve officers/deputies that "dont exist" when you ask. Basicly friends of someone, and now they have a commision card/badge and a weapon, but you never see them.

I see the direction that this blog is going, and it might need to be started over with a more fitting title. Yes, law enforcement is seriously lacking in manpower, and still has the "good ole boy" click going on. But the rescue squad and the volunteer fire departments are the same way. They will turn people away that want to help, but still call during fundraiser time wanting your money.

You are correct on this. I live in Hickman county, but work outside of the county. I have been through the basic police officer course (police academy). I have tried to help out several times, however I am told that they dont have anything available. But I am overlooked when they get ready to hire a new officer or deputy. They rather spend the money and wonder if the new officer can pass the police academy instead of hiring somebody that already has. But they will not send the new officer as soon as he is hired. It may takes months for a slot to open up at the academy, or that the officer is ready to go. During that time, the new officer can not by law ride in a patrol car by himself. He must ride with a officer that has passed the academy.

There is a serious lack of law enforcement in Hickman county. If people want to volunteer their time to help, and are qualified/will get qualified they should be allowed to help. Might cut down on some of the crime here. Same thing with the rescue squad. It seems that it has become an old mens club.

I have noticed that too. I would hate to think one of these old guys had to drag me away from an accident.

And without Hickman county going civil service, if you say anything, you run the risk of just being fired.
