I would like to think that I could afford to pay a few extra bucks for the protection of the people!! Why is it always about the money. You would not think that if you or your family were the ones needing the help of the police department. Only criminals thing that way!!

You live in Blacksburg. Shut up. The Hillsville police department has the dumbest cops. They have been known to have their brights on behind people's cars, and when the person changes lanes, they pull them over. They've even been in Galax, where they have no legal business. None of them can drive, none of them have sense, and I live in Galax to keep from paying their paychecks.

It really says something about the police if they're on Topix all day rating posts.

"You would not think that if you or your family were the ones needing the help of the police department. Only criminals thing that way!!"

Call me a criminal, but I pay taxes, and therefore can use my freedom of speech to tell the world how backwards the HPD is.

I do not understand people. Be happy that someone out there care about others. I am proud to had a police officer in my family. I am proud to had someone in my family that cares to put their life on the line each and everyday.

Hillsville is not a big city. The police officers are not risking their lives, because it's a very peaceful town. It would be even moreso if y'all didn't have the damn cops around, too!

I'm not against cops. I'm against dumb ones.

I live in Laurel Fork. They do risk their lives you are the one who does not understand. Ask any one of them how many time they been shot at. If you only know. Crime index is 36 which in my opinion is not good. Galax is 14. Which this means only 36 percent of US is worster place to live then here. Galax only 14 percent of the US is worster place to live then there. Sound like to me we need more police officer in our area. Carroll County and Galax is know for drug, gang, alcohol used in their young people. The only reason you do not like police officer is because of the law.

99% of those who feel negatively toward law enforcement are those who come into conflict with law enforcement from breaking laws or local ordinances. Most of these people feel that it is okay to have these laws and ordinances but they do not apply to them or they should receive exception.
Yet the kicker is, when they themselves have been wronged and law enforcement is involved then it seems law enforcement is not doing their job or not doing enough.
I for one am tired of the childish whining about law enforcement.

There's nothing going on in Laurel Fork. Galax is much bigger than Hillsville and LF, and the drugs, gangs, and alcohol... Drugs are everywhere. You can go into a certain bar in Hillsville and get all the drugs you want. What do the cops do about it? Nothing. I see them there all the time, too. They're more worried about pulling someone over for switching lanes. Alcohol isn't illegal, though.

I don't have a problem with the law. I have a problem with officers not doing their jobs right. They haven't busted some well known dealers, yet they keep pulling people over for nothing, giving bogus tickets, etc. I don't break the law, and you don't know me.

"99% of those who feel negatively toward law enforcement are those who come into conflict with law enforcement from breaking laws or local ordinances."
Are you high? That statistic doesn't even exist. You're trying to say anyone who doesn't like cops is a criminal, which is not true.

"Most of these people feel that it is okay to have these laws and ordinances but they do not apply to them or they should receive exception."
You're so smart we're going to give you a Nobel. You know everything about every person on Earth. All hail this anonymous Topix poster!

"Yet the kicker is, when they themselves have been wronged and law enforcement is involved then it seems law enforcement is not doing their job or not doing enough."
That sentence doesn't make sense.

"I for one am tired of the childish whining about law enforcement."

Then stop whining.

My posts get rated down because people don't like to hear the truth. People on topix are scared that their law enforcement doesn't care about them.

Who cares? It's just a troll who has nothing better to do with their time. Let them have their fun. I laugh every time I see these post ratings, because they mean nothing, and they do nothing.

There ain't nothing wrong with bluegrass. If there was no blues, country, or bluegrass, there wouldn't be rock n roll.
