Why in the world did they hire him?? They have enough controversy in that little county with the Sheriff and his problems. Why add insult to injury? Now they have two law enforcement officials to keep their eyes on.

"They" are three members of the county commission, one or two of them have a personal grudge against our sheriff. There was an informal poll made and 318 people voted. 3 said yes, 315 said no. "They" hired him anyway. It's a control issue, not a law enforceent issue.

THIS IS JUST AN EXAMPLE OF THE CORRUPTION OF THIS STUPID BACK WOODS GOVERNMENT. THE IDIOT COUNTY COMMISSIONERS HAVE NO FISCAL MANAGEMENT, I WOULD BE SUPRISED TO LEARN IF ANY OF THEM HAVE EVER SEEN A SPREAD SHEET OR A BALANCE SHEET. I WONDER IF THEY EVEN KNOW WHAT A FUND BALANCE IS.

THIS COUNTY ONLY NEEDED A FEW ADJUSTMENTS TO THE SHERIFF'S OFFICE BUDGET TO INCLUDE ENOGH MONEY FOR PROPER TRAINING ON INVESTIGATIVE TECHNIQUES AND AN INVESTIGATATION DIVISION OF ABOUT 2 DEPUTIES.

THE IDIOT COMMISSIONERS WOULD NOT KNOW WHAT A CRIME WAS IF IT BIT THEM ON THEIR BUTTS.

ALL THEY THINK THE LAW OFFICERS SHOULD BE DOING IS SETTING UP SPEED TRAPS.

SHERIFF COOPER HAS SERVED THE PUBLIC OF CUSSETA-CHATTAHOOCHEE COUNTY BETTER THAN THE CUSSETA POLICE DEPARTMENT EVER DID.

I HAVE A QUESTION FOR KEN SUDDETH, DO YOU THINK YOU CAN CATCH SPEEDERS GOING THROUGH FT. BENNING BETTER THINK TWICE. ALSO DO NOT GET OVER ZEALOUS LIKE YOU DID IN COLUMBUS. THIS COUNTY WILL NOT STAND FOR IT

WOULD YOU BELIEVE THE COUNTY COMMISSIONERS DO NOT EVEN CONSIDER AN EMS DEPARTMENT, AND PAID FIREFIGHTERS, WHICH IS NEEDED A LOT WORSE THAN A FREEKING SPEED BUSTER POLICE DEPARTMENT.

WHY HAS THIS COUNTY WENT BACKWARDS NOT FORWARD AS CONSOLIDATION SHOULD HAVE MEANT?

The only thing I don't understand is how both sides of the issue are so narrow-minded and juvenile. It seems that if their were to have been any progress it would have more than likely come out of compromise of both the police department and the sheriff's office.

As far as the name calling and childish threats, I would hope that sane adults would not resort to such measures. A true professional would handle them selves with dignity and integrity and not stoop to the level of his detractors. I had put in for the position of Chief of Police, but I am thankful now that through God's good grace I didnít get the position and that I don't have to deal with such attitudes as those coming from throughout your small community.

You have around 1,500 people living an area approximately 45 square mile (this does not include the portion of the county controlled by the Fort Benning Military Reservation. What amazes me is that you cannot see that change is inevitable and that what was happening was something that has happened in most progressive and successful counties in this state. But I know that most people are afraid of change and that also explains why the sheriff has been in power for so long.

Given his budget the sheriff could provide three to four deputy coverage at all times for the county if some priorities and egos were changed. I just hope that there will be presence of mind within the new government to realize that things can be done different than they were ten, twenty or even thirty years ago. Fresh minds and ideas are what made this country and state great, but it because of the attitudes like those of some of your residents that enable areas to stagnate then wither and eventually fade away.

Yes I agree with you, The Police department could have been a good thing, if it had been handled correctly. Also the sheriff's department can handle this county as well if the commissioners had not took it among themselves to be god and jury and form the Police Department without informing the people and doing a little research. All they had to do was go to Harris county and I am sure the Harris county government would have lent their assistance and Input, Columbus Sheriff's department also would have assisted. But Larry Dilliard, James Morton and Ben Miller decided to be dictators and it backfired on them.

I have a copy of the article where Suddeth finally admits he is a liar and fraud. This guy is a shyster. The residents of Cusseta-Chattahoochee County should be very concerned. I'll be happy to forward the article to anyone interested since it is too long to post to the forum or you can look it up yourself in the archive of the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer dated February 3, 2001. I saved the letter he had some hack lawyer from Denny, Pease, Allison and Kirk attempt to intimidate me to shut up and not reveal his true identity. Write me at [email protected] if you would like more.
