do you not think that hensley in harris inner circle you must be a dumbie to not know them two been tied together at hips 4 a long time. we need a change i say ben whitson he is a colonel doesnt need the money and he want be using county money to deliver fire wood, doctor bills inmates working on dozers, and writing tickets to drug dealers for growing marijuana. he would evaluate employees and clean house.

Mike Hensley has a 27 year old son that is dating a 17 year old girl that is a senior in Unicoi County High School. If he wasn't a good enough role model for his son not to date jail bait why would he be a good enough role model to run the police department???? Sure that crime will be overlooked due to the good old boy system the sheriff department is famous for.

Excuse me??? I am Mike Hensley's wife. What do his children have to do with any of the mudslinging going on with this political nonsense? Ride by my home anytime. Our property IS taken care of, and we have no animals in a hog pin. When people like you post things like this, you have no idea who you are hurting.....my family has enough to stress to deal with!

it seems to me that mike hensley statrted another form of smear against a man who gave him a job treated him excellent but when he seen a way to cut throat and discredit his boss jumped at the chance i am sure he and his merry band of local bar owners and dog thieves are at it again give the sheriff time to get better then attack him when he can defend himself. i would like to know when he works everytime i drive by his house the county vehicle is there. and who is helping him work in the garden is it the same inmates that help him in cane patch? he is saleing produce now.
Why are you riding by our home? If you need Mike's police services, you can call the sheriff's dept. I, his WIFE, am helping him in the garden, harvesting and SELLING. When I'm not caring for my very ill father.

Really? Why does it matter who our son is dating? Yes, there is an age difference. So what? Mike is 12yrs older than me, his wife.

Who really cares how many times he's been married or how many kids he has?? How many times has he been caught drinkin on government land with a dang inmate? How many times has been absent from work for over a year? Thats much better questions in my opinion. Once again, there are no pens at his house you freakin moron! No hog pens, no dog pens, no pens of any kind. Clearly, you haven't been by his house to see. Even if he did, whats it matter? You think if he gets sheriff he'll have dog pens at the sheriffs dept? Of course as brilliant as you seem to be, you probably would. Pretty sure he has a cat inside the house too!:0!! OMG!!! Who does that?! Ummm i know, normal people! The same people that have coons dogs in their back yard! Really not THAT big of a deal. Have you ever had a pet? Yes?! Oh you fealthy human being!
I don't know who you are, but thanks for taking up for us Hensleys :-). It does bother me a little that so many people are riding by our home....know how many dogs we have....know that we have a cat....very interesting....think maybe we need to add security cameras around our place or move off the main highway? If some of these interested people would stop, they will see that Mike's wife will invite them in for coffee....

Booker, I agree 100%! Being in hot water with federal agents is a little more severe than having a dog pen in your yard. When it comes time to elect a sheriff, I for one won't be deciding on who to vote for by the looks of their yard, instead by the looks of their background and by their morals.
What does my home and my dogs have to do with my husband's job??

boo hoo it has alot to do with his job. animal cruelty is a crime if you have relationship with a minor could be statutory rape and come on writing a ticket to a drug dealer just to get your picture in newspaper is this the type of justice UNICOI county wants think not!

There is age difference then there is statutory rape like one poster said. Guess it doesn't matter since "your son" has a father at the Sheriff office. Guess the rule don't apply... Funny thing if someone is wanting to get elected looks like they would follow the laws and up hold those laws. Unicoi County can see how the UCSD would be run by Hensley...if you are a Hensley the rules don't apply to you...

Obviously you do not know me or you wouldn't be saying the things you are.
There is no animal cruelty going on at my home. I'm getting ready to go out in the pouring rain and make sure the dogs are ok.....and fed.
Our son is FULLY aware of the law, especially because his father is an officer.
You do not know the circumstances of the citation because you were not there. He and the other officers did not do anything to "get their picture in the paper". News outlets report what there is to report.... stay tuned.

Like I just posted.....our son is FULLY aware of the laws, and the rules DO apply, to all of our family. "wanting to get elected"? There's no election scheduled for another 3 years....... Like I said to another poster, YOU obviously don't know me or my family either. Stop by sometime and get to know us. Being a "ball maker" you must work with Jamie?

Thank you "fat boy". People unfortunately get very ugly sometimes when anonymity is involved...... Yes, we do have our hands full. If people were going through what my family was going through they might change the things they say. We're not perfect, never claimed to be. Just trying to our best job.
