The real problem in the town of Reidsville, Ga. is that generally, there isn't enough acceptance, tolerance or recognition of cultural diversity amongst the native people groups in the area. For the most part, people in this area refuse to subscribe to the fact that diversity is the fabric of todays America, and even more so, the America of the future. Divide and Conquer has long been the rallying cry of those who have wished to dismantle strength in society. Unify and multiply is the rallying cry for those who want to bring a positive change in society. Don't teach your children to hate diversity. We are all different. Recognizing and more importantly understanding and tolerating our individuality allows us to understand and more ultimately LOVE ourselves.

Dear God. Of all the comments I've read on here, I'd be hard pressed to believe that any one of you has actually been inside our city limits. I know every person at Reidsville Police Dept and you couldn't find a better group of people anywhere. On behalf of them, thank you to the people that support Law Enforcement... To the rest of you, if you don't break the law, what have you got to worry or fuss about? Furthermore, if you don't like Reidsville, there are plenty of other places in the state of Georgia that you can call home.

Not too long ago a police officer got stopped in Glennville,Ga for DUI. He was arrested, tested, and tested way over the limit. He called another police officer who talked to the arresting officer and they fixed the situation by charging the arrested officer with a lesser charge. This shows that all are in belief that they are above the law and can do pretty much as they please when they please. No wonder no one trusts the police. So now this police officer is walking around doing as he pleases still wearing a badge. Would you trust him or his leaders to back you or do whatthe laws they are suppose to enforce tell them to do. I think not. They have all broken the law and violated their oath of office.

Well wise @@s, I live here and have so for a few years, they did get a new cheif and now things are going a lot better, you assume that those that wrote are losers, so what does that make you commenting about them. Lowering your grand self to there level or are you a bigger loser than they. Get over yourself, opinion are free, they let you write one right.

Law enforcement here does what they have to, to make sure that we don't get a crime rate like Savannah and they do that also by keeping the population down. every area has an officer that takes things to far, that does not mean they hold a grudge against any one person. I know several of the officers and the new chief and am proud of the job they do, regardless of the the criminal element they still put their butt on the line day in and out to make sure that my kids have a safe town to live in.

I was Assistant Chief of Police in Reidsville from 1980 till 1983 when I transfered to metro Atlanta. I personally know Chief Diane Sharpe. She started with the department as a dispatcher when I showed up in 1980. She has been there ever since, is dedicated to the people of Reidsville, runs the department with professionalism & compassion. These small town departments operate without sufficient funding or back up. If you want to stay out of their cross hairs don't screw up.

I agree. The situation with Brandie Vaughan was just a small town political fued. Whoevers got the money and the pull in Tattnall has the power. Brandie was framed and the GBI agent lied on the stand!! They told her her only choice was to sign that paper sayin she stole the money then turned around and used it against her. Now you tell me where innocent until proven guilty comes into play there. She never had a chance. You know why, because Tattnall County made sure of it before she even pleaded her case. The so-called friends that she had up at the sheriffs department knew that Brandie would never steal money and yet they sat back and watched her get sent to prison because THERE jobs would be on the line if they didn't. So yea, i agree 100% Tattnall county is ran by the people with pull not by the laws of the state. People are being let off because they have high ranks in the county and yet innocent people's reputations and lives are messed up because the county wants to save the higher dog's rep.

I totally agree with the individual who wrote about the Reidsville police and Sheriff's dept. They are a total joke and make irrational decisionto arrest anyone who doesn't kiss their behind's. I had an altercation with my ex girlfriend several months ago. she attacked me physically. We called the law. They showed up and the 2 officers who showed up talked to witnesses and decided to take both of us to jail, which would have been proper. Then comes along this skinny sargent and never spoke to the witnesses and decided to only lock me up. He almost ruined my life, not to mention my business. So anything said about the Reidsville Police departments can't be bad enough.

whats the matter, i thought all the deputies and sheriff were your friends ??? you sure stated that through all the court battles between us. and if your going to tell the story tell the truth!! you got arrested because you assulted me and our son!!! and the officer in charge made a decision to let me stay with our son. when things didn't go your way with them you started bad mouthing them. the funny thing is YOU are the one that called them in the first place. and no one but you about destroyed your business by staying drunk and stoned on pain killers and not doing what you were contracted to do. this whole incedent was your fault because you couldn't be a man and say that you wanted us to leave. you let me, our son and the community believe we were to be married in december of "07" and then in june of "08" all of the sudden want to put me and our son on the street!!!! grow up. the sheriff's dept. did their job and you didn't like the out come because you thought they should kiss your butt because you have a business in town and they didn't,you don't want to face the truth as has been your m.o. your entire life. take no responsability as useual !!! and yes the sheriff's dept does have their problems just like you and everybody else in this world. myself included. you are the one that created the problem (still causing problems) and can't be a man and straighten up. if me and the sheriff's dept. are such big problems to you, what is your excuse for all the other women in your life you did the exact same things to??? what about your grown kids that can't stand you for what you did to their mother ? sounds like you are the one with the problems not the sheriffs dept.!!! stop putting the blame on everbody but yourself!!!!

if yall don't like the way things go on in reidsville, AGAIN there are other places you can go. i bet my bottom dollar that none of you have the balls to talk to any officer of the law like that, you know why, BECAUSE YOU NEED THEM. as a officer my self we put up with everyone's crap, and we deal with everyones crap because no one else has the balls to stand up. try living without the police and see how far you get. like i said i am a police officer for the city of reidsville, yes sometime we might be in a bad mood, but you don't have any clue of what we had to deal or who we had to fight with before we stoped you. so give me a break....
