I want to know why do tax payers pay fr bus usage to get kids to school but we also pay for the cops to drive patrol cars around doing their jobs but yet they use the patrol car to take their kids to school I see sevral county cops every morning going to prescott to take their kids and then there is one algood cop too I understand taxpayers pay for them to drive the car but only to their jobs not to take their kids to school that is what the school bus is for

The job is pretty rough. Can't you cut them some slack when it comes to taking their kids to school? Ever think that might be a decent trade off for not being there Christmas morning when their kids were opening presents?

What do you expect them to do? Drop their kids off then drive back home across town to get their patrol car?

I would never let my children ride the school bus. I was a kid not too long ago and I remember quite vividly how incredibly awful the kids on the bus were. Cussing, smoking, doing drugs, and performing sexual acts in the back where the driver couldn't see them. The gas used dropping a child off at school is not that great to warrant disallowing cops to do it. It's not as though they're dropping them off at a charter school in Nashville or something.

The ability to drop off your day child while in a patrol car is an at minimum deserved job perk. Do you not realize the mere visual presents of officers, slows traffic and decreases the chances of someone getting stupid? Get over yourself!

I don't give a fluck what shift he works. Unless you're a stalker or a disgruntled acquaintance, you don't know the rest of the details concerning his life. There are much worse things he could be doing in those two hours besides dropping his kids off at school in a county vehicle. Get a life and the maybe you won't have to be so obsessed with the lives of other people.

That's pretty heavy to lay on someone that simply worries where his tax money goes. Surely he is entitled to that. It's not too hard to know what is going on next door these days. Suppose he is having a difficult time making ends meet and sees his neighbor misusing the tax money he is paying in. Most people have a life and have a care for the money in their lives.
point blank your wrong

If you are referring to the SINGLE FATHER that has a child that goes to ALGOOD elementary. He DOES NOT work night shift and hasnt for sometime! None of the officers that work on nights have children that go to school in Algood.

I have a nephew who decided he didn't want to go to school,the judge told his parents to take him and drop him off and pick him up.well he would run off when they dropped him off and be there in time to be picked up.well when he got caught doing this the judge ordered that the police take him to school and check on him a couple of times a day.this was in elementary school.he has since graduated high school.and went on to college.I don't know but could some of these kids being dropped off for this reason.it dosent matter anyway the way I look at it it puts more police in an area and at a time that they could be needed.

Shame on that cop for taking time out of protecting the citizens of cookeville/algood and spending that 15 minutes to drive his kid to school! Lets all get a lynch mob together. Oh no we cant have that! How dare that officer, who puts his life on the line daily to keep us safe be allowed that tiny thing? OMG you are so pathetic. Grow UP. He has a child in school, and likes to go by and take them so he gets that couple of minutes with them. is that really a huge ass deal?

Oh no! How dare those cops who put their lives on the line to protect us spend an extra tenth of a gallon or so in gas dropping their kids off at school! Maybe we should just disallow the use of patrol cars while off duty, period. All law enforcement personnel must walk to and from work.

ok, all you smart ass people....what happens when this child riding around in a city, county or state vehicle gets hurt or killed while riding?????Thats right, they are NOT covered under insurance and we the tax payers are liable. It is also against all city, county and state policy. Instead of bitching here, bitch to someone responsible. I don't know about you, but my taxes and insurance premiums are high enough. Wrong, is wrong, cop or not. The locals law enforcement fools get paid plenty for what they do. Dangerous? right, never been a officer killed in the line of duty here. Its more dangerous collecting shopping carts from the parking lot of Walmart. They need to park those patrol cars and the station and drive their own car to work like everyone else. If you disagree with this you are either a tax stealing cop or cops wife and or girlfriend.

The cops around here are brain less twits, I have dealt with them a few times and it's amazing how lazy they are, and they think they are like Gods with guns. And I don't have a record. So let the stupid cop take his child to school for free, why should he pay for his own gas, do you think any of them do.

Or maybe we just have an ounce more common sense than you do. It is not practical to expect police officers to drop their kids off, drive home, get their patrol car and THEN go to work. It also isn't against any law or protocol for them to drop their kids off at school in their patrol car. They are allowed to use their vehicles for personal use under certain circumstances like running a quick errand immediately before or after a shift when they're on their way to or from work. If you knew what you were talking about, you would also realize the logic behind allowing cops to keep their patrol cars at home. Studies have proven that privately maintained patrol cars are kept in better condition than those that are left at the station. Since you hate or police so much, I hope you never require their assistance. Don't even think about picking up the phone the next time some crackhead breaks into your vehicle or home and steals your shit.

You hate our cops, our paramedics, and our fire fighters. You spent a few weeks trying to argue about the points behind letting ambulances idle. Facts are not your forte.

Just let them do what they want, thats all I said. I don't hate them, don't put words in someones mouth thats just wrong. Gas is free in this town anyway for all city workers right. Amazing they let the ambulances run all night, let the cops do it too, I really don't care, but I like everyone else has an opinion right or wrong to give.
