Ralph Holly from Elizabethton, TN being interrogated by an investigator, from the Carter County Sherriffs Department, and trying to exchange info and/or do a controlled buy in exchange for leniency.

I saw where somebody put this up last night and I reported it as abuse to topix. I gave them the Elizabethton Police as a contact on the thread and asked them to remove it.
Now you have turned around and put it right back up.

Obviously, the low life druggies in Carter County are trying to take over this forum. Why would you put this link back up unless you are a drug dealer too??

I am going to report this yet again to topix. This should not be posted.

I would like to see as many druggies off the street as possible and put their little hineys in that Hilton hotel jail we have. Whoever leaked this should be fired is they work for law enforcement.

We have way too many junkies in carter county and they are breaking into homes and Churches and I am losing patience with them. Just come to my house...and meet my little friend!!

You're an idiot. I posted it because obviously someone at the EPD is a dirty cop trying to let other druggies know who is telling on them. I hate to burst your bubble but I'm not a druggie, nor will I ever be! I agree -- they should be faced with disciplinary measures for posting this. Yet, why was this video so easy for someone to get to?? Tsk. Tsk. Tsk...one more thing--- by YOU taking it down, and reporting it over and over again, you're just covering up another HUGE downfall of our law enforcement.. It's still on YouTube!

You guys keep saying EPD but the video says its from the Carter County Sheriffs Dept, not the EPD. And why report it to have it removed here, that doesnt take it off YouTube. You should have contacted Sheriff Mathes and asked what the deal is, which I'm in the process of doing. If I was Sheriff and someone was leaking out official police information like this, not to mention putting this guy's life in jeopardy, I'd be pissed. Not that I know this guy but he has grounds to sue the shit out of the County now.

Sorry I misunderstood. The thread last night was warning people this guy was a "snitch" and it just seemed like druggies were sending messages to other druggies.

I didn't think of the angle of Sheriff's dept personnel being involved in leaking information like this.

If anything happens to this man, I can only imagine the lawsuit against the county the family would have.

So what you are saying is that there is an employee or employees in the Carter Co. Sheriff dept working with the drug dealers.

That is the person or persons who need to be exposes and now.. Somebody should send this to WJHL and ask them to investigate instead of local.

I apologize for misunderstanding what your intention was.

That's exactly what I was thinking.. Someone needs to send it to the news before it magically disappears .. This Holly guy is going to have every single druggie after him now after they've watched that. Did you read the comments left on YouTube?? He's already receiving threats! I LOVE how the investigator assures him about how the narcotic guys are really good at keeping people's identities concealed. It doesn't appear that way..

Yes-- you could have uncovered a major scandel. I dismissed it as just the druggies themselves. It is a whole different ballgame if law enforcement is invloved. Nonetheless, this man was lied to and deceived by a local govt employee.

You are right, people need to find out what is really going on.

Who can we contact??

Lied to by goverement employee...lol...very funny..like an officer never lied to anyone. Besides he lied to them...he chose not to tell them that he let his 19 yr old son named cody (he's a bicycle theif and his job is to lay around on the coutch in Lynnridge and play video games....on your dime) out with his girlfriend to rob Nick. His son was the one that broke in so they could rob his appartment. You can even catch him in his lies when he asked where he "popped out" then he said he was in car looking for cell phone when officers arrived.
Funny how he wanted to quit doing drugs from the wreck seen to the jail house since one reason he took them to break in was for drugs.
You can tell what kind of trash he is when he ran and left his girlfriend laying on the roadside with a broke neck and also laying all the blame on her and not telling that his son was in on it. This prick came to my house looking for trouble and when he found it he ran to the law. He knows if I catch him out what he will get...and no it's not about drugs or snitching..it's for coming to my house and starting his chit. It's about time the hollies boys came down...it's just sad that one of them isn't going to get what he should cause his daddy lied for him.
So I think he should get what's coming to him either way. All of you who feel sorry for him cause a video got out of him wanting to tell on others for the same he does are foolish. Do you really think he's such a stand up guy that he wants to clean himself up and rid this town of thugs? No he just want his get out of jail free card cause he got caught.
I could go on on on about this prick ...but I'm so pissed I think I'll call one my girlfriend and have her come over and start chit with her and slap her around abit. Holly boys...you reap what you sow...Cody you got away again..keep up your chit and you'll get what coming to you too. Ya'll have a good day.
Well

It's been passed on to who needs to know. Hopefully someone will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. I'd be surprised if the TBI doesn't get involved.

You obviously have no clue regarding police interview techniques and recruiting of CIs (confidential informants). This happens all the time and is completely legal...the only problem here is it shouldn't be made public.

The questions is WHO made this public and WHy???

This guy may be an unsavory character..but...we have a major, major drug problem in Carter county.

It is completely out of control and getting worse by the day.

Our law enforcement needs all of the help they can get to get as many of these people as possible off the streets..and they need it any place they can get it.

Who would interfere in helping to expose what is going on with drugs in our community?? whatever the source.

these people are driving along our streets and highways endangering themselves, their kids, and all of us and our children.

There are a record number of break-ins happening all over he area..a lot of these people are hooked and desparate..which makes them even more dangerous. They have now taken to to breaking into Churches and stealing all of their electronics,, etc. In Johnson City 5 Churches have been broken into within the past couple of weeks..even stole their Church vans.

Our community is becoming dangerous because of all of the drug use for everyone.

If people in our law enforcement is working on both sides, what are we going to do???

I agree with all of that. The releasing of the video HAD TO BE someone at the CCSD as no one else would have access to that interview tape. The tapes should be kept locked up as evidence and with appropriate key controls it shouldn't be too difficult to narrow down who might have done this and why.

As for the "lying" by a government official/employee, the police are allowed to "mislead" during an interview to extract the information they want. If you watch carefully, this suspect is never promised anything. I'm just astounded that if this guy had as much information as he says he does why he wasn't used an an informant. Baffling to me.

I didnt read all the comments but theres one thing for sure...by someone releasing this video, it clearly shows hes willing to nark on people which if the wrong ones see it, he may not want to be released from jail....theres several ways to look at it...maybe a cop doesnt like him n wants him 6ft under or maybe a cop is warning his drug dealing friends..or maybe an inmate whos free to wonder around got ahold of it and wanted his outside buddies to know......its a mystery but just guessing.
