I just watched a Scott County deputy be really unprofessional and in essence a great big bully to a young man who did not deserve it.
Is this typical for here? I am a former MP, and my brother is a deputy in Prince William county, and we were taught and believe in being tough but professional.
Is this the reality for the county I just moved into?

Sheriff Puckett is better than what we had, unfortunately he didn't clean house...... Just the bathroom. So there are still a few bad seeds Broadwater (last sheriff) planted....... Actually every seed he planted was bad.... So I'm sure it was a deputy he hired. Another misfortune is the ones that he kept hold high ranks :( and totally abuse their authority.

Why don't y'all man up and take your problems to the sheriff instead of a message board. Oh, thats right, your all just mad because you got caught doing something, or a deputy didn't kiss your ass. When I see a thread like this, where people start ripping on deputies, it lets me know that they are doing their jobs. Normal people go to those who cause their problems, not a message board. This will probably flush out a few haters. Let it flow lawbreakers.

So if I say not only do the deputies ABUSE authority, they instruct and assist their family members in ways to harass and intimidate. I have a video of a sister of one of Scott counties FINEST (yes I use that term loosely) talking about how her brother advised her in how to get someone arrested on false charges, explaining how she gives her prescription meds away verses selling them. She threatens harassment through her brother. Not only are they in power trips, they encourage the behavior among family members.

Same as it has been for years and years.... Lawbreakers whine about EVERY SINGLE POLICEMAN where they live. "Its a big conspiracy!" "They're all in on it!" "I have proof!" blah! blah! blah! Go to WCYB or WJHL if the problem is so bad. You all are in the wrong and you know it. You're just mad you got caught. FYI: It doesn't help your cause when you are constantly talking about problems with every policeman who has ever lived. Let the hate flow lawbreakers, it lets me know that the police are doing their jobs.

The Scott County Sherriffs Dept is one of the finest in the country! These people don't understand anything other than tough here. Stop breaking the law and you don't have to worry about being roughed up. Get a job, go home at night to your family, stop selling drugs and driving around like a bat out of hell drinkin and smokin. Simple!
Good job

I am a former (thank God) resident of Scott Co and you do not have to be a law breaker or a welfare recipient to be harassed by officers. Ive been lied to and harassed by a few Scott Co officers myself and so have a few of my friends. Dont be silly.. You dont know what these officers are doing unless you're right there with them so dont be so judgemental.

You sure have that right. I am over 50 years old, lived here many years, no tickets and have errands to run at night due to work hours. You better bet your life that I get pulled over for NOTHING. They have used so many excuses it is not even funny. I have talked to town hall in the past and even met with the prior mayor of Weber City before, and nothing became of it. Just we will talk to them. That sure doesnt work, so it seems that the officers sure notice post on here and they dont like it. There are a group of concerned citizens who are forming a group to talk to WCYB, if this does not cease. I expect any officer to do their job, but dont pull me over for looking at Christmas lights. Dont pull people over from out of state and give them tickets for illegal tint either. They can fight this and win for sure. They just do not want to come from out of town all the way back here and fight it, so they pay a ticket they do not deserve. BINGO! Easy money for Scott County. Funny one a WC officer pulled over a friend of mine in their truck for illegal tint. Guess what??? HE WAS A TENNESSEE OFFICER OFF DUTY IN HIS PERSONAL VEHICLE. He told the WC officer, "You cant do that". Then he pulled out his badge. Funny!

They can stop out of state vehicles for illegal tint, but if its darker than what Tennessee alows they can give you a ticket. If you get it a ticket its your own fault, just let these guys do there jobs. and police officers are not above the law acutally they have to live to higher standard than regular citizens.

It sounds like Post has no clue what's going on. Virginia officers cannot give someone with a vehichle registered in Tennessee a ticket for illegal tint. The ticket was thrown out of court due to this. Please step off your high horse, observe the world around you, and realize these officers do not live to a higher standard than normal citizens. I would love to know how harassing inncoent citizens for made up reasons is doing their jobs. These officers don't do their jobs; they run from actual crime.

I agree with post they do there Jobs, and like I've said before if you want a change become a police officer or deputy, yes they can if it's ABOVE the illegal tint in Tennessee did you not read that part. I wouldn't be mad if I got a ticket because I know if I got pulled over for a reason. I wouldn't complain about it
