Finally! What took so long. Attention finally on Lincoln County's 'good ole boy' network. What do you expect from a redneck Republican town? Most of these guys are homegrown and protecting their interest (jobs there stay in the family).

I can tell from Seamore's post that he is a liberal. They start off calling names and making accusations of a whole town.

First of all having friends and family in your administration is not just a republican problem.

They are all crooked in my opinion. I am not going to attack someone just because they are a liberal. I am sure if this was a democrat you would have skipped your post. You are so predictable. Angry liberal, oppose every idea that does not match your own. make fun or villifying all the opposing views.

Please go get you a big glass of Kool aid and leave us "dumb old rednecks" alone. No matter what happens we need solutions not 3rd grade speaking topics.

The lincoln county sheriffs office is a joke. I went through the citezens academy last year and personally saw and heard many things that were out of line, judgemental and just plain out disrespectful. The sheriffs office personally selects whom enters the academy and who doesn't. They say its based on background checks, I personally disagree. Out of everyone selected there was one black woman, the rest white. She attended maybe two classes and just stopped coming, as many others did. By the time the citizens academy was over, they were down to less than half of the people they started with. The sheriffs office does a half assed job and the rest of the time sit around racially profiling people. Its a shame that after midnight our "county's finest" is more concerned with standing around in the petro racially profiling people and mocking people previously arrested for hours on end instead of doing their job. Sheriff Daughtry himself needs to be given the boot and Lincoln county needs to take a good long look at the next person elected. I know I won't be voting for Daughtry's re-election. What used to be a well respected department has now become the laughing stock of the county. These are men and women we trust to protect and help us in times of need, not profile and discriminate against us behind our backs. If you can't trust the police, who can you trust?

I dont have a dog in this fight about the Sheriff but then again do you think a fired employee is going to have nice things to say about their former employer?

Did anyone even notice the title?? or even read this long, drawn out, poorly written, boring article? This article is so full of holes and lies I can't believe the EDITOR, an educated(?) man, even let it go to print. The title is accusing before the guy has even found a lawyer to represent him and filed his case!! LTN's names the Sheriff a racist. Is this not considered pure 'SLANDER' from the paper? Most articles written from this small town newspaper have been poorly written, poorly edited and obviously not very factual!
And sadly so many citizens are ignorant (seamore) of so many facts - Sheriff Daugherty is a democrat!

I don't know what to tell you there, its a personal decision whether or not you call the police out to your home for whatever reason it may be. I personally won't call them unless its an extreme emergency like a car accident, or a theft in progress. I've come to find that with Lincoln county if you go to them with something that may be a big deal to you, but petty to them, they aren't going to try and help you anyways. To them its a waste of time and too much paperwork. They keep face so they don't seem rude, but after you leave they probably just mock you or racially profile you some more and discard your paperwork. I'm really dissapointed in the Lincoln county sheriffs office, whether or not these articles printed in the paper are true or lie ridden. Despite the fact that every article probably contains a lie here and there, its still sad, a disgrace, and makes our county look bad. The things surfacing about the sheriffs office can't all just be coincidences and lies, exaggerated maybe, but I'm pretty sure that every story being told holds at least some truth. The saddest part of all is if you've ever met Sheriff Daughtry or Taylor its not hard to imagine either one of them actually commiting the allegations being held against them. Then again, what do I know. This county is nothing but a bunch of rednecks supporting the good ole boys right?

Hell, they NEED to profile the Mexicans running around on our streets! Most don't have a driver license or insurance! They sure as hell can't read our signs or understand our traffic laws. I'm sure I'm not the only one who's seen 10 of them piled up in a van with little kids sitting on their laps! PULL THEM ALL OVER... then start deporting the illegal ones! I'm not racist... I'm just sick of our towns, counties, states, and country letting these illegals get a FREE RIDE at my (and every other taxpayer's) expense!

I have one word for your whole entire post. Ignorant. How the hell can you claim not to be racist but support racially profiling every single person of a certain race? Let me ask you something, would you appreciate being racially profiled just because you were a certain color? Or do you think you're above that just because you're white? I thought so. Asshole.

Well, MissAssholeyrollermouse, wait 'til one of those "Hispanics" rams your car (or someone's car you love) with no license or insurance because they can't understand what the Hell a stop sign is (and then try to run)! A white male IS a minority in this country! Or, will be in the next 50 years, when all these illegals keep popping out babies left and right! Damn, maybe I am racist! White Power! WAAAAAHHHHHH! ;)

Of course, there are enough dumb bitches (you are probably one of them in a VW) riding around in their BMWs or Audis putting on make-up, texting their BFF's, and everydamn-thing-else but paying attention to the road while they're driving! Oh wait, now I'm a Sexist! WAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!:P

I assume you think it's wrong to be cautious of an Muslim getting on the same plane as you. We shouldn't raise an eyebrow cause that is racial profiling. I CALL IT COMMON SENSE! Well, I don't complain when I'm searched going thru the airport. I don't hate any race, actually I think Mexicans work harder than anybody I've ever seen. They are at work earlier, stay late and never complain. BUT...they need to be legal! They need to pay taxes and have insurance and follow all the laws WE follow.
What will this country be when we all decide - we can break the laws - we will get amnesty too! White people want amnesty from speeding tickets since they are the ones caught the most.
WHERE IS COMMON SENSE THESE DAYS? I would rather be called a racist profiler than have someone in my family blown up by a terrorist.

Now see what you have caused by making this post and not knowing what you were talking about in the first place.
So who is the trouble maker now in this town?
