How come there was nothing named for John Cribbs for all the years of service he gave our area? Forget the problems his son has had, he keep our county and city safe.

This is true. I wonder he was a good sheriff and he actually ran the sheriffs dept we did not need a jail administrator and a sheriff to pay like we have today. This is a waste of taxpayers money. And they actually had good food for the prisoners to eat.

I totally agree John Cribbs was one of a kind sheriff and we need more like him today--although a sheriff could not do some of the things Poppa John did. He saved my life back in the 60's---RIP Sherrif John Cribbs! By the way Sheriff John Cribbs was Tommie Cribbs dad and therefor the grandfather of the John Cribbs people know today--2 different people.

john cribbs was a murdering POS that terrorized the citizens of dyer county with the help of thugs at the DAs office and crap bags like his son tommy cribbs. A real public nuisance.

Big John Cribbs may not have done things accordinly to how our laws are today but by golly he got it done! His motto was "it takes a crooks mind to catch a crook"! He also saved my life; got me out of a very abusive envioriment. I think if anyone had been in a situation as such would be grateful to the man as well.As for his son Tommy Cribbs he may have been a better sheriff had he not got addicted to drugs and alcohol...

people of dyer county; sheriff john and his son tommy were thiefs back then ,just like the history of the county says. sheriff jeff holt and jeff box are the most responsible sheriffs this county can be proud of. stormy, you do not know of anything about the cribbs, as they would have you in a mental hospital, or at the bottom of the miss. river or floating in a pond or the forked deer or in a deep gully in the lenox hills. they would not put up with your dumb-ass ramblings, for they would shut you up. so therefore you do not know what corruption was like in this county. so therefore i hope you make a new years revolution and STUF about the corruption in this town,that you think is going on; has it ever crossed you stupid-ass mind you are the only one for ALL OF YOUR OWN PROBLEMS. the cribbs ran this town like the mafia in town,that is how the county got its nickname "little chicago".

lol, when you have been through hell like me not too much you haven't seen.
EVIL OLE MAN HUH? LOL, i DON'Y THINK TOMMY IS MARRIED. MAYBE HE WAS JUST BEING MEAN.
YOU KNOW HOW SOME MEAN WOMEN LIKE ME ARE TOO.
WHAT YEAR WAS THAT ? TOMMY IS NOT A YOUNG MAN ANY MORE.
yes tommy was married to a very nice lady. her name was eva jane; and she and tommy had 2 children,a boy and a girl, and they both took after their daddy. yes tommy was evil for the whiskey,girls, sheep and drugs. he would pay some of his snitches to burn things up and collect the insurance on them," can you say insurance fraud. stormy, if you don't like dyer county , then by all means move from here; nobody is making you stay here. if not then STFU.

john cribbs was known to torture and murder prisoners(their screams were heard by other prisoners lodged in the jail) in the little filthy jail near the black barber shop mostly for talking back to him or one of the crazy deputies that worked for him and the DAs office in this dirty lil county.

why don't you go to the nearest nut house and live rest of your life with all the skids in there just like you. you REALLY, REALLY, need help. i hope one day you get the help that you really need. there is no reason for all the curse words that you use and put god's name in vain. i hope the u.s. really helps the mental health patients in this country, and i really hope you will benefit from it. it is very unhealthy to carry all that anger, and if you are looking for a pay-out from the county, you can forget it.
