Looks like the sheriff is still having to clean up the good ole boy system and the dead weight out. Good for him, we feel better and safer everyday.

As far as Owens and Cameron are concerned, yes, they were originally hired by the previous administration. However, they were REHIRED by this one. Correct me if I am wrong, but wasnít the new sheriff their chief and supervisor for a number of years prior to the last election? If they were bad employees shouldnít he have known it and why did he keep them on? In essence, based upon these facts, your comment actually infers that the sheriff is a poor judge of character and that the people he has hired/retained are corrupt. So, with that said, if there are any ďGood Olí BoyĒ people working there then they are his. After all, did he not purge the place of all of the prior administrationís ilk when he took over the department? Seems like I remember a lot of people being showed the door from the get go. Out of curiosity, can anyone tell me how many people have been fired or driven to quit since he took office? I ask because it seems as though the turnover rate is extremely high within the department. Something that you seem very pleased with. However, I canít understand how that would make you/anyone feel safer or better. If anything, losing that many experienced officers makes me question the quality of the officers patrolling our streets. No, I believe that he is responsible for all of the hiring just as he is responsible for all of the firing. You canít give him credit for one and not the other. So, if there are any problem employees they are there by his own design. Another thing, when do his problems stop being everyone elseís fault? When do those who supported him stop blaming others for his poor leadership? The way I see it, the only consistent factor in all of these lawsuits and ugly allegations is him. I can not believe that ALL of the accusers are liars and that he is just an innocent victim of mean people. I find all of the sordid complaints very disconcerting. It is troubling and unseemly that one person has been at the center of so much controversy and turmoil. Especially, an elected official.

It is troubling that this nut job can stand up there in the front of everyone and lie. He stated that he does, "the best he can" and that Commission raised some "untruths" about him and his department. Bull Shit. He is the lie. His vision is a lie. That man couldn't tell you the truth if he were reading it off of a telepropmpter (humm reminds me of another elected MISTAKE). Wake up people. Does everyone not see the supporters he has? The "Leaders" of our county that have spent up into a bottomless pit for the next 40 years or better.......my god! Wake up! Anyone that Beeler and crew are so behind is NOT GOOD for Jefferson County or its citizens. The man is a nut job, ALL of his characteristics are more than suggestive that he is in fact a LUNATIC! Get him out of there ASAP!

It appears you and a handfull of busted druggies have the same opinion. The sheriff will be reelected. If davenport were to get sheriif again then he would fire everyone on the force to hire back his cronies. That ain't going to happen no matter how much you hate it and come on here blabbering and bashing because no one wants to hear it.

He is the sheriff, he has deputies to do that work. He knows what is going on even if he is not there making arrest. That is what the sheriff does. Get overit already. I don't know if he has more deputies and cars but since he has been sheriff their presents all over the county is seen and known, with davenport you seldom seen this. Where did they all hide out at? Davenport work ride out to get his picture taken with the guys picking up trash on the side of the road, that is about all he ever done and bad mouth Bud for running against him along with his misfits. Give it a test until election time and get a job and life.

What basis do you have for making such an accusation about the former sheriff? I am curious because I donít ever remember Davenport firing people at will when he took office. Actually, when Davenport took over as sheriff he kept everyone other than the department heads. He even kept those employees who didnít support him and who had campaigned against him. As far as I know, he didnít get rid of anyone and he gave them all a chance to work for him. I especially remember this because, at the time, I thought it was admirable that he kept those who werenĎt his admirers or devotees. I found it commendable that he exhibited such kindness and compassion when he could have just as easily been vindictive, uncaring, and arrogant. When he could have fired them all and hired his supporters in their places. So, considering what I know to be true, you must be confused as it canít possibly be Davenport that you are talking about. Perhaps you are actually thinking of the current sheriff who has done exactly what you are accusing. I find it truly sad that the current sheriff hasnít exhibited the same charitable heart towards others that Davenport displayed to all of the employees years ago. Which, by the way, includes the current sheriff himself. No, you can say a lot of things about Davenport, but that he has fired or would fire people maliciously isnít one of them.
