My question is, what are the city council and others going to be charged with lying? It's very clear after reading the Chattanooga paper, they knew something.
Drug money missing from eton police, the gharmley incident at the sheriffs dept, now whitehead and martin at chatsworth police, ensleys gone, when are the voters gonna get rid of the mayors and council members of our cities that keep reappointing these people. They wouldn't have a job if it weren't for the mayors and council members.

How can you all point your fingers at Terry? Its not his fault that Jim is a piece of shit, also who is his wife to say a damn thing. She needs to worry about what she is doing & what her husband is doing to this day.

This "when are the voters gonna get rid of the mayors and council members of our cities that keep reappointing these people. They wouldn't have a job if it weren't for the mayors and council members." is what Citizen wrote in post #43.
What I wonder is why does he/she think 'the mayors and council members' appoint/reappoint anyone????

Because they do, the Chief's are appointed by the mayor and council every year. Chiefs position is on a year to year appointment.

I wonder if you read post #43????
In it the poster is naming others,not just the chief of police.
That is what I was refering to.

If Chief Martin had properly disiplined this officer in the past, he would not have been here to do what he did!

Listen whitehead needed to keep his dick in his pants thought be was a real ladies man now he's busted does he really want it all to come out ?
I wonder

I wonder if 'WHO DA' is male or female????
Sounds like either it's a male and he's a
"wanta be ladies man" or it's a female that
wanted attention from Jim.
Jim is a good guy,he's polite and well mannered.
Appears to have always done his job and did it well.
Why not let the Whiteheads and the other couple
worry about what's going on between who and who.
Unless YOU are involved with one of those 4 people
it's really NONE of YOUR business AT ALL!!!!
whatever

Whtehead is not a good man, he is rude and a smart mouth that hid behind a badge.n He cheats on his wife, he beats on her also. How can you call that piece of trash a good man. Are you Jim! Trying to make your self look good. Jim Whitehead Is white trash and should of been fired years ago.
yep

Whiteheas should of been fired years ago. He is not a good mam. He is pure evil. He also keeps having his post taken down, so people can't find out the truth about his sorry but.

Are you his wife????
If you're not,how do you know what goes on behind closed doors????
If you are,why do you stayand put up with being abused????
I'm not Jim,but I still say...
I've never seen the side of him
that y'all are telling on here.

No one knows what goes on behind closed doors......

I know the neighborhood,and talk is cheap when the story is good.
And the tales grow taller on down the line......

I've stated what I myself have witnessed from Jim.
That's all I have to say about it.

My guess is the city DID NOT have written policy, being the reason the termination was reversed so quickly to be called a reduction in force.
Termination on grounds not covered under written/signed policy could have had potential consequences the city could not defend.
Botched all the way around in my opinion.
Conduct policy has been a fact of life in the "real world" for 20 years or more. Unfortunately most small, local governments don't have to live in the real world, even in 2012.
The failings of city hall and the chief of police have allowed Whitehead to pull down $15-20K in unemployment benefits at the expense of the taxpayers for what would certainly be a fireable offense in over 90% of business/industry/government jobs in America
What you could you expect, that drunk a s s Kirby Patterson hired the looser. He hired that looser Terry Martin also.
This town is a jole

Terry knew what Whitehead had been doing for years, he allowed it! He is of the same unethical character. He even does worse than Whitehead. He tried to run over a woman he was seeing one time in front of the post office, and nothing was done. At least Margret Adams a council member knew how sorry Terry was and wanted him to be fired.
