Only a complete moron would think that old bag was a good officer. I mean if she were such a good officer, she would have known it was against the law to drive while being intoxicated right? Or maybe she thought her celebrity status would keep her except from enforcement of Tennessee laws!

This is just the beginning of the lawsuuits with that dumbass McCoig in charge of the Sheriffs office. He thinks he can do whatever he wants without any consequenses - wait til the lawyers get ahold of him on the stand an make an absolute fool out of him- thats all he is anyway. He gets what he deserves. Reprmanding an employee for using the bathroom. Can't wait to see the next suit - only a matter of time.
I wonder too

In the paper it says she was told of numerous places she could go use the restroom. Why was it so important that she have to go to the sheriffs office to use the restroom?

Was she making it an issue from the start to get to where she is now? Sounds like a problem child all along. From other post on here in the past they could have an agenda to get the new sheriff no matter what? If I were called for this jury duty I would remember all the BS posted here also. The poster here is or could be somehow involved.
Hopefully NOT

I would hope any juror would not use anything posted on topix as a deciding factor for either side in any case!

Thank God someone is finally taking a stand against jefferson county sheriff department and the judicial system. The level of corruption in jefferson county is beyond repair and they have turned arresting people in to a business and deserve to be put under federal investigation and they all should stand trial and be put in prison for their crimes against the people and abusing their powers that in trusted to them they arrest 75 percent of innocent people a year and make them sign false confessions and also make them sign plea aggreement and the public defenders see to it that they sign. i am the voice of the people of jefferson county we must stand up together and fight the injustice of jefferson county tn than and only than willl are economy improve and our lives get back to normal was must go to war against the corruption. Power to the People.

First off ha ha!
How do they make them sign anything? And that's the reason for court. To prove innocence! I must say though, I don't want you to be the Voice of anything for me. Now go learn the judicial proceedings, and pick up some punctuation along the way!

It boils down to her changing her tampon. You can change your tampon at a bathroom in your zone, not come back to station. That is pure silly. She just found an opportunity to hurt McCoig and she is taking it. Grce just wants her slice of the pie because her and McCoig never got along, even back during when Quarles was the main man. She's butthurt and wants revenge. It's very simple.
Davenport and his cronies had a ton of dirty power in this county and they lost it and want it back. This is just the catalyst to try to gain that power back.
Hey, everybody needs somebody to launder money, cover up Jim Green's murders and run drugs through this county. Why ot be a patsy for Davenport and his Jefferson County mules?
Get 'er dun Grace..you always were the go getter.

When you are a "female" officer, firefighter, paramedic, member of the military or whatever (because women can now be anything they want) then you follow the same rules as the guys. There is no special treatment. If you are having your menstrual cycle then you should be a responsible adult in other words make provisions for this ahead of time. I always keep an extra "sanitary product" with me and I have also had times where I had to use the bathroom at the closest location within my beat. An officer never comes out of their beat and/or zone unless they arrest someone, or assist another officer or their supervisor gives them a special assignment or something. All officers have places to use the bathroom in their zone. Its not hard and its no big deal. This is so ridiculous. There are no laws or employment protection in Tennessee. Unless your company or agency has a civil service or equivalent, your boss can fire you at any time. They do not have to give you a reason and there is nothing you can do about it. If you have been sexually harassed or discriminated against because of the color of your skin then you can actually file a legitimate lawsuit. This suit is going no where. She was told she could not go back to the Justice Center to use the bathroom. Seriously. She should have been use to the cold shoulder at the Sheriff's Department because she and her sister got that years ago when they were licking Davenport's big a#@. She lost respect from all the other officers many years ago, and especially from other female officers because women like her are the exact reason that so many of us who really want to do the job and have the same respect as men can never really get it. Once they set that precedence then it becomes almost impossible to change fellow officers or the public's mind. The Sheriff should have fired her from the get go. She has just been looking for something. This lawsuit is frivolous to say the least and it will not go anywhere but yes she is wasting time and money but then again she wasted the counties money for years by being an employee.

While I agree with some of your comments, much of what you said is hot air from boiling ignorance. In Tennessee you may terminate an employee without reason, but must provide a reason for FIRING someone. An employer is responsible for providing certain health and safety standards in the work place. An employer cannot terminate or fire someone for filing a complaint against the employer.

Most everyone in Jefferson County knows that deputies are sometimes approved to leave their patrol sector for personal reasons. Does the sheriff have a written policy that meet the color of the law? Are restroom facilities available in all sectors 24hr? Is there a written record documenting this deputy has done this before?

The sad part is the sheriff's department has lost too many court battles in the past, costing the taxpayers while the sheriff never paid a dime. This deputy may deserve firing, but the taxpayers should be protected from lawsuits by confident leaders who know the law and document their actions.
