SADD Walk will be held October 23, 2007 at 6:oo p.m. They will meet in front of the school belltower. This group of students, faculty, and citizens are promoting a Safe and Drug free Crothersville. Come join us in this walk and see how most of our town feels about a name change. Truth is, the biggest majority of us are not into any of this destructive way of living. If any of these acts of violence had not happened in our community, then you would not be taking this offensive survey. Crothersville would be like any other small town U.S.A.

Yeah this town made a drug march before. Big deal when the cops turn out the drug dealers and hide everything they do in order to keep the meth flowing. You will not change things by marching in the street.
Yeah there is too much violence here and murder is covered up by the cops. I would say lets vote to make Jackson and Scott county the Methamphetamine States of America with Crothersville as the capital. That way cops will be able to make their own rules and do what they want to and it will not matter if innocent people go to jail to cover drug crimes.

Let's get real, I addressed your comments made on another thread, I'll do it again here. What innocent person is in jail to cover for drug crimes? Why is it that you want to put down good people who are against said drug crimes? What facts, stats, numbers do you have to show Crothersville as the meth capital? Yes, there are things wrong in this little town, yes there needs to be something done about it and if our cops aren't going to then get some in here that will. BUT, I can look around and see that Crothersville is far from the "capital" of anything. On the other thread you made the comment that the people in town encourage drugs, that disgusts me that you or anyone else would say something like that. I am one of the people and I have and will report any drug activity I suspect. I did it at a town meeting in front of God and everyone, so don't believe that everyone is fearful because this is one who isn't. If I suspect that there is a crime taking place it will be reported, not encouraged by me.

You go right ahead and report those crimes. The police will not do anything about it so you are wasting your time.
The COPS encourage drugs and allow a lot of people to get by with things to keep them making their meth.

I have been told that Norman Ford is willing to speak at one of the Crothersville Cares meetings. If the community interest is there, then maybe something can be arranged. You sound easily frusturated, which usually ends in giving up, the can't attitude will never accomplish anything.

There has been pot found growing on Fords property in Jennings Co. more than once in the past 20 years. I am sure he will have all ears and eye on any topic the people of Crothersville wish to talk about. He just did not no it was growing there and this is our chief of police ? 30 plus years on the job.

It looks to me like "let's get real" is trying to say that you can clean all you want, but, as long as there is no political will to clean up the drug situation, your mowing and weedeating efforts are only going to make it harder for perps to hide the bodies.
Now, real has been quite adamant about the fact that they belive there is something wrong at the police level, so you suggest that they attend a meeting with Ford?
Here is an excerpt from an article written by an IU grad student journalist who came to your town to report on the Hall murder.
"The influence of power cannot be ignored, either. Hushed tones accompany the mention of certain names, and the ever-present buzz of fear has residents considering using false names or refusing, outright, to speak on record. In a town where so many cling to their personal salvation through Jesus Christ, the landscape of Crothersville, Indiana is ironically godforsaken. Most are afraid to go on the record, for fear that local law enforcement will remember the indignity and further abuse their power through false arrests, trumped-up charges, botched investigations and abject corruption. Each and every Crothersville resident willing to comment about Aaron’s murder has his or her own horror story about Jackson County. Many have had personal run-ins with the law. The stories of prejudice, intolerance and narrow-mindedness are legion. In a town the size of Crothersville, social capital is a powerful weapon. Everyone knows who wields the power. Everyone knows who the important families are. Everyone knows who to call to get meth. Everyone knows everyone’s family, history, darkest hours. You don’t cross those who are in power. Period."

I'd like to know who he "reporter" talked to, I don't know anyone who she spoke with, I've lived here my entire life and I dont' feel that any family in this town is any more important than mine. I'm not afraid of anyone in town. I've heard people talking all over town about Aaron's murder, not in hushed tones either. I have had my say to and about the police officer's in town and do not fear any "trumped up charges".. She says that many that she spoke with have had personal run ins with the law, perhaps that is why she is getting the view she is getting. Criminals don't usually have a great love for police and most don't feel they should be punished for their crimes. I read the stories on the site of the paper she wrote this story for. They want to make the death of Aaron part of their agenda. They tried to make Tommy's comments on tv about it being a "hate" crime PROOF that Aaron was gay to further their agenda. Aaron wasn't gay and Tommy was drunk when he made his comments. By the way, I dont' know who to call to get meth, if I did, I'd turn them in.
And to Let's get real, I'm not wasting my time, if I do what I feel is right, then my time has been used wisely and sooner or later others will catch on and it will do good.

I was one that spoke to the reporter. I was not misquoted either. I have not used drugs in my life time, 45 years and I no who to go to if I wanted them. These same kids that are in trouble all the time are the children of the people I new of as a teen to get drugs from, it was happenning in the high school in the late 70's and as late as 81 that I remember. For the most part all these people have been arrested for something, but are back on the street in a matter of days.The same familys are on the school board and town boards as well as the same police chief. Maybe the faces have changed some but its the friends of these people that are in it now. I am not ashamed to live around Crothersville. I just don't tell anyone because I always here the same questions Do you no that Colman girl and Stocklman guy. Do you no those people at the porn store and Do you no those kids that killed that man ?

Questioning, IU is one of the best schools in the country, and I'm sure you agree with that when it's convenient for you. This journalist did an excellent job of reporting on this crime. Furthermore, I'm sure that she did not only seek out the criminals in your town to talk with. Sounds like Crothersville Resident would agree.
If "let's get real" feels that they have an opinion that needs to be heard, they should go to areas where people will listen. Looks to me like people are listening right here.

I didn't put down IU. I said that the bloomington alternative has an agenda and they are using this story as a way of furthering their agenda. As I said, the only people quoted in said article are those who helped the story say what she wanted it to say. It makes the whole town of Crothersville sound like racists and biggots, seeing that I am part of Crothersville, I can say this is not true, because I am neither. I also know that not every resident it afraid to stand up and say what they think for fear of retaliation from the police. But I stand by what I said, if Let's get real has information that has not come out about either of these murders and they are not just rumors, they have an obligation to everyone to come forward and give that information to the authorities.

Truth teller, if you know for sure that there is a connection, then you should be telling more than us. Take it to the authorities if you have some information.

Questioning, unless you were drinking with Tom Hall the day he made the statements, then how can you say that he was drunk?

#16 Oct 19, 2007
I saw him right after the statement was made, he told us to watch him on the news and he was falling down drunk, he didn't get that way in a few minutes.. As a matter of fact, I saw him a lot after Aarons murder and I never saw him sober. Personally, I don't drink, so I would not be drinking with anyone.

I don't know why you felt it was important to give me that information. Your comment was rather rude, which is why I asked.
Have you stopped to think about how Thomas Hall might feel about his brother being murdered?
Perhaps you should go back and read the article Denise Travers wrote with Aaron's mother, Martha Gumm. It's rather heartbreaking. Do you know her? Are you afraid to stand beside her and fight for justice for her son, or are you afraid it will further someone's "agenda". If you are, then I guess the gay panic defense is already working.

#18 Oct 23, 2007
I certainly do know Martha and no, I'm not afraid to stand beside her to fight for justice for he son. I have stated many times the boys who did this deserve to be punished to the fullest extent. Aaron was not an angel, doesn't mean he deserved to die and you will not find anywhere that I suggested such a thing.. and there is no gay panic because he was not gay and they know he wasn't.. I knew Aaron well enough to know that it was not a sexual request that he made, more likely he told them to s*ck his ..... and why did I feel the need to give you that information, because you should have correct information, not rumors. You asked a question, I answered, ask and you shall receive.

Hummm...I look in from time to time to see whats happening...just looking in...today, I am compelled to post. Methville? Police aren't doing their job? On Febuary 20th of this year the Jackson County Drug Free Council met at the Historical Hall to GIVE the TOWN resources in the fight against drugs...members of the POLICE FORCE were there...a retired school teacher...and two or three others. NO-ONE covered the event from the LOCAL press...NO-ONE from the town board came...NO-ONE from the Ministerial Association...NO-ONE represented the School...and there were NO Parents in attendence. I have recently viewed a host of photos posted by the LOUISVILLE PAPER of the clean up and revitalization of Crothersville...were any of you there? As much as it pains me that there was no LOCAL coverage or no LOCAL support, I witnessed those few individuals that got off their behinds and took to the street armed with weedeaters and PRIDE...I saw a beginning. I pray for their efforts and attitudes...for there are only a few that haven't just gotten frustrated and given up on the whole town! I see complaintants but no actives. Shut up or roll up your sleeves.
