Corrupt leadership in the Cherryville police department

Statements were made by the FBI that Dellinger was told by other Cherryville police officers that he should return property that he had taken from a home while doing work for his lawn service.

Come on, everyone that I have talked to in town say the same thing about this guy. He is dirty. How on earth can we expect that the higher ups in the department did not know that, at the very least, Dellinger was up to no good. Also would you complain directly to the FBI if something was wrong with a patrol officer? No, you would go to the chief of police of to a captain or LT first. I suspect that people did. And the leaders within the department either ignored the complaint or they were part of the problem. It is looking more and more that they were part of the problem. Why else would they be suspended so quickly by the Cherryville town leaders?

I think the FBI said to Jeff Cash "hey we do not have enough evidence to arrest these guys but we may have enough soon. I suggest that you suspend and keep them out of the police department offices so no evidence disappears."

Of course that is conjecture on my part. But do you not think that is a possible, if not probable, discussion that happened on Wednesday? It is time that our local leaders really clean house. Time to at least fire the police leadership. Can we trust a leadership team that looks this dirty and allowed this kind of corruption to go on under their noses? Jeff Cash time to really clean house that the Mayor asked for on Monday.

I have become embarrassed to tell people that I live in Cherryville. We have become a joke to the surrounding communities. Time to change that and show everyone that we really mean business.
Want a squeaky clean city? The it is time to really clean house.

Alfred, you're onto something. Only don't have too much faith in Cash either. Do you think all this corruption could be going on without him knowing about it? How stupid would he have to be?

So where do we go from here? I saw a great posting suggesting we flash mob city hall with our power bills in hand. But I feel that county, state and federal laws will not allow Cherryville city government to make any changes. Electricities is definitely covered, but where are the laws that prevent ONE man to assume command of OUR town without ANY input from it's citizens? So if the city council is legally powerless to change anything, why did they run for office? Just like the policemen involved in this 1920's Chicago style BS we are dealing with now, they did it for their own personal gain. And they are good at it. Would anyone vote for an old retiree from Carlton Mills? Surely they have paid their dues for this town. And how many of our city leadership actually live within the city limits and pay these outrageous power bills? DO THEY REALLY FEEL OUR PAIN??? You might be surprised at who have conveniently zoned themselves out so they pay REA electric. ABSOLVE THIS TOWN!!

It depends on who you are in Cherryville as to if you get charged. Some people here can do whatever they want to and face no charges,that is how it has been for a very long time. I am so happy to hear the FBI came in and hopefully some of the people in this town cannot influence the FBI like they do everybody else. It is a embarrassment to live in this town. For whatever reason the FBI did come in "THANKS" maybe some of these people that can get by with everything will come to a end after all these people in office are gone.

Police use of excessive force, especially deadly force, corruption and other misconduct hurts everyone – especially the police -- in terms of lost cooperation, support and trust – which, in turn, diminishes their effectiveness. That's the reality. Now what? To learn how to confront and prevent it, see,“Arrested Development: A Veteran Police Chief Sounds Off About Protest, Racism, Corruption and the Seven Steps Necessary to Improve Our Nation’s Police”( Amazon.com ).

There has always been two sets of rules in Cherryville. The in croud has always done as they please from taking things that weren't theirs to loOking the other way when their friends and family sold drugs, stole money and property or drove around legally drunk. Thank God the FBI stepped in and I hope they clean the whole corrupt bunch out by sending them all to federal prison. I'm not aware of a single one of them I would trust as far as I could throw them. Parasites feeding off of the hard working taxpayers.

Everyone is corrupt?? Mayor Bob? If the mayor is corrupt, why does he keep getting elected? And how about the city council? Surely there are more of 'us' than 'them'? When will we elect officials who can be a part of the solution?

How can they do anything? The council's a joke and the mayors more interested in keeping the status who than rocking the boat.

The city needs to be dissolved. No taxes and no services and no employees. Let the county provide police for the county taxes we already pay. REA for power and Lincoln county for water. Eliminate these crooks.

An intelligent guess (at least I hope it is an intelligent one) is that more indictments are to come. My guess would be in the direction of leadership of the Cherryville police department based on the quick suspension of the two ranking members of that organization. Also video taken on Wednesday shows FBI agents searching Woody Burgess' and Captain Allred's vehicles. Also something was taken from what appeared to captain Allred's vehicle and bagged as evidence. Another video clip shows Allred handing over his service pistol in a holster to another FBI investigator.

The Hoyles being married to each other may be an interesting coincidence but I do not believe in coincidence especially when it comes to police investigations. Another interesting happening is Hendricks release on an unsecured $50,000 bond. Mauney was to be expected being a young officer that appears to have followed the crowd and not been a principle. But Hendricks being released seems to be something to do with being an informant I would guess.

Around town people seem not to be surprised at all at Dellinger's arrest. "he was always dirty" seems to be the common thread. The judge seems to blame him for everything being started and rightly so.

My overall impression with the situation is this: This could not have gone on unless someone higher in authority either knew about it or at the very least suspected it. It means that the leadership in this town was or is criminal or criminally negligent. It concerns me that the six individuals, four being sworn police officers, felt safe enough to do this. The environment in this community has to be wrong for them to feel this way. That is why I am calling on people to "CLEAN HOUSE".

Helen, to respond to your posting as to how they get re-elected,......voter fraud. We went for YEARS with the same city council. Last election all of those long standing representives got voted out. How that happened.......who knows. But one of the newly elected councilmen told me that they were going to clean house. Well,..... That was an understatement to say the least!!! They have a lot more work to do. If I had my way, they would not have a job within a year. ABSOLVE THIS TOWN!!!
