You have got to be from mars. Mike Neal has single handed took the crime of Rhea County and washed it down to the bear minimum. He is the most popular Sheriff we have had and the only thing bad they can say about him is that he is not around. Big Deal at least the job is done so those few Rhea County people crying about they cant talk to the Sheriff then go ahead and waste your vote on Sneed.... Who cares!! Neal 2010 still undefeated!

I am still waiting for someone to tell me what reason you need to talk to the sheriff ? If your situation is so unique that no one else can help you then it sounds like you need to make a deal to get out of trouble. Better yet I have asked many people if they have any problem getting in touch with the Sheriff and they tell me they they don't need to talk to the Sheriff so what exactly is your problem. Funny thats the only thing Sneed cronies can come up with LOL you people are funny.

The only thing I can think of about having to personally "talk to a sheriff" would be to try to have the sheriff tell the deputy that arrested my kid, grandkid or even me to not take the warrants to the court house to be sworn to and "dump" the charges as if they didn't happen. Maybe in return I could ask the sheriff to let me make a substantial donation to the drug fund in return for this "deal" or maybe ask the sheriff to let me pawn something for pennies on the dollar, swap some sort of farm equipment, etc.
Those are some of the very popular rumors we all heard about Leon Sneed. So Leon was indeed always available for any call because he ran the sheriff dept like a business, not a government public service. Even his own boy said the dept. needs to be run "like a business".
The bad thing about all of this wheeling and dealing is that a sheriff simply can't be involved with anything like that. But what does one do when a sheriff does whatever he wants? Politicians around here can't even control the other Sneed boy who is a chief of police. But oned thing for sure, of all the things I have heard of Sheriff Neal I have never heard of him doing anything. Maybe he has but I sure hadn't heard about it and I am smack dab in the center of it because county employees and all the locals talk. But Mike Neal is correct in ignoring the temptations, the business deals and utilizing drug fund money correctly. Remember when Chris Sneed was over the city drug fund and that rumor of 40 grand gone and the whole fund gone and then dumped onto Tommy Solomon to explain it?
I'd rather NEVER see or hear of a sheriff as opposed to having to deal with one and if the crimes his deputies charge make bail bonds, drug fund money and personal gain as if the department was a giant car lot and the cars synonymous with "criminal charges". Then again, maybe I'm wrong or am I?

No one has claimed Sheriff Neal single-handedly takes out crime. Facts are per TBI study that crime was lower in 2009 in Rhea County. The only thing you keep throwing out about Neal is women. There are several men on law enforcement that live a double-standard life. The only reason you want to try to do this is because it is the only thing you can try and discredit Sheriff Neal with. Unlike the heritage of his opponent. There are endless stories that many people out there know to be true of the background of his opponent's family. They made their name dirty. Now for that you are attempting to make the Sheriff look just as bad. Facts are, he isn't.

Like that old song lyrics, "I wanna go back, and dooooo it all over but I can't go back I know..." is precisely what we as a county DO NOT need to do. We DO NOT need to venture back to the years of 1986 thru 2002 where a slick talking used car salesman that thrived not from the sales of old beat up cars, but the charming, slick, sneaky way in which he sold them to us. He would do or say anything to sell that old car to us and was very capable and convincing and with a tenacity of being able to keep a straight face. People with such character are the very ones that piss on our leg and try their level best to convince us not to look at the real truth of what is happening, but to just simply "believe" them when they "tell you" it is merely rain of a warm summer day. However, as times have evolved, we have become much wiser in our day to day lives. Times are hard for us all, even the Sneeds.
I believe with all my heart that Leon Sneed wants to be the sheriff, wants to be in that limelight, wants to see masses of leech quality parasitical personalities clammering around him. He yearns for this but just as old, faded actors, singers or the like want to "go back and do it all over", they just can't. So Leon wants to live a future that is not really a future but a "past" and will spend enormous sums to achieve that goal. But in the end he will more than likely find that people have turned away from the tactics that lead to success and money for him and those around him be happy with the crumbs. Mike Neal has been in office 8 years and other than people complaining he isn't there to take a phone call (meanial) then to me I can settle for 4 more years of the same progressive style as opposed to stepping back and giving Leon Sneed one more chance at 60 something year old to "go back and do it all over".
The sun has set for him and his dream for the power, the access to public funds and the ability to do as he pleases has come and gone. Soon Chris will be out of a job (within 2 years) and the luster, or should I say, LACK of luster of being a small town detective will fade and life will go on for them as it has for us all.

I'd like to think of Rhea Co as people that have good sense but for a lot I'm finding it more and more difficult. Seriously if people say that their not voting for Neal b/c they called him & he didn't call them back, or they've left him a message and he never got back with them la te da!! Big freakin BOO! I'm sure that he does NOT have time to call every person back. But that's beside the point..why in the world would you even need to call the sheriff? What could be so important? Yes, I'd agree 100% its to get so & so outta trouble. People need to open their eyes if that is the ONLY thing they can say about him then I'd say he's one heck of a sheriff!! Been in there 8 yrs and the only thing they can run their mouth about is over NOTHING which they are just doing for their own good by wanting to get outta trouble! If you have a problem at your house and you call the cops they WILL show up at your location! Just call 911 and hang up then see if a officer don't come knocking on your door, or call them b/c your neighbors dog pooped in your yard whatever the case they will show up. Neal has done many things for this county and for that I am grateful. No he doesn't work on farms all day, no he don't fish all day either, nor does he stay in bed all day that's just lame "excuses" people are using and saying about him. He's been working somehow cause he's accomplished great things around here.
I think there is a lot of us that can sit here and tell about some good Sneed stories that's all about 99% TRUE! people want to talk about the crime rates. It's not our sheriff or officers its the PEOPLE! It's this WORLD..no matter how big & strong a force is they can't control everybody! They can't arrest every drunk, drug dealer/seller, or every convict there is. Crime rates are up all over the world not just Rhea Co, and it will continue to get worse as the end of time is drawing nearer. However I think if Sneed got sheriff we might has well just move! Uncontrolled Crime rates will go through the roof without anything being done about it. A lot of people will think they can get by with anything b/c Sneed is sheriff. I already know people that's saying that! With his stepdaughter and all her drunk wild about black friends they'll be a lot of "getting off the hooks" They have drunken parties at least once a week, always fighting & into it with somebody, drugs etc you get the point. Of course he will NOT arrest all her black friends or friends of their friends. So we won't even stand a chance here with all these overlooks going free.

So where is the great Neal at why is he not busting these parties? You people accuse the Sneeds of all the things Mike Neal is guilty of but then praise him and then call the Sneeds the great Satan. You make me sick@

The last I read, I was agreeing with you and we were essentially on the same side. I guess maybe I missed that too, but no need to read anything to me. I have been reading. Mike Neal has deputies and administrators. Single-handedly, Idon't think, but with good people working for him, I was essentially stating about the fact on the lower crime rate. Again, I thought we were on the same side.

It seems the topic is always how much money the Sneeds have but we never discuss the current Sheriff. Mike Neal has over 1 Million dollars in property in New Union. This record is public on the Tn Tax Assessors page. He has a very very large farm on Evensville mountain with a home on it that is used for what? All the county bought four wheelers are usually stored there along with other toys. Mike Neals top supporters are Ronnie Ray (pawn shop, bondsman) and Tom Smith (pawn shop, bondsman, commissioner) Jr Miller (bondsmen whos wife works for Regina Metts and son is deputy)
and MIke Neal gets 60,000 or more in farm subsidies. Now can someone answer this without jumping back on the Sneed broke record spill. What about Neal

Neal has to be aware of where the parties are at in order to bust them. Not like he can just bust in someones house just because there is more than 5 cars parked in your yard. And I'm sure that the stepdaughter and her friends only let out invitations to certain ones they sure don't want to let the wrong ear in on it. So what's some of the same things you think Neal & Sneed are guilty of?? If only I could let the cat outta the bag and tell who I am maybe these idiots could see a little clearer. Let's just say that I know Mr.Sneeds wife REAL well :) and most of the Sneed stories you hear are infact true.
Yep
