I know the election is 2 years away, but does anyone think Jackie Melton will run again? Who do you all think will run against him if he does? Any good candidates out there for the job?

I hope he run again, so people can beat his ass, the voters just wanted Hickman out. Anyone can beat Melton, melton will go down as worse sheriff in Meigs history.459

If anyone can beat him, why don't you run against him for it?

Sorry I don't live in the county now, People didn't vote for melton they voted to get Hickman out. The job doesn't pay well enough for me.

Need a new sheriff for sure I see him in the sheriff car all the time and when he steps out he is in regular clothes no badge and no visible gun is he working or using county gas for personal use ?

He doesn't wear a uniform or some sort of identification ? That's not very professional. Who is loyal enough to be sheriff of Meigs county anymore?

I have heard numberous different names that could possibly be running for the upcoming election but have yet to hear it from one of them. I believe meigs county needs someone younger and more eager to clean up the county than the past sheriffs. A problem we seem to run into in this county is electing older generation meigs county citizens and nothing being done about our problems.

Seriously? Your worst complaint is that he doesn't where a uniform. Most sheriff's don't. In fact, I never saw Walter wear a uniform. Rarely did you see his gun. When he carried, it was on his ankle. He frequently wore a badge in his shirt pocket, but that was it.

A uniform does not a good sheriff make.

Can someone please explain how someone can hang themself in a holding cell in Meigs County Jail? There are no door handles, nothing to tie anything to but someone still managed to do that. Also when you are booked in they take your any and all of your personal belongings until your released. You're not suppose to have your shoe strings, belt or anything else that can be used to hurt yourself or others so please tell me how that happened? He had no reason to kill himself. Someone is getting away with murder at that jail.

I heard that Jackie is loosing a Detective, LT, and a SGT. Why did they decide to leave?

Also heard there is other deputies trying to leave. I don't think Meigs has ever had this many leave at one time in the 40 years I have lived here. Would like to know just what is going on down there.

First of all they need a person who will actually be a Sheriff not just wear the badge. Meigs County has nothing to offer to it employees so why would they stay. Whenever the commission decides to offer something to their employees they might be able to keep some good employees.

I am personally glad to see one officer gone. He was nothing but a liar and manipulator. He may be a good cop, but it was only because he was a criminal hisself! He does drugs, but did the sheriff care? Maybe now people will see him for what he really is, he lies about things in his life to make the story better no matter how it looks on everyone else. If he has told you anything, I would proceed with caution before believing him. I know he was selling his exs pain med after she had a miscarriage, sold them to a guy in his hometown, Ryan was his name.

I don't like many of the cops here now mainly cause they are so young. But to think Wiggins is going to run for sheriff is a joke. He is not even the top ten I would vote for. I have heard and seen to much with him, if I was going to pick a person today to run for sheriff it would have to be some of the people who have been there since day one, not any that has left and came back (Jason). I really like Michael Breedwell but seems he is leaving for something else. I also like Andy Andrews but since he has already left hard to vote for him but I would over Wiggins. Maybe it's time to bring some of the older hands back to get this place back in shape.....
