As I've been out and about in the county discussing this election, I couldn't tell you how many people I've talked to who say they're changing their vote for sheriff this time. The main reasons they state is the jail break, and the fact that Andy has fired so many people from FCSO. Andy has his work cut out for him this go around.

I am voting for Taylor, he has presented a plan for crime prevention and Conway's burglary/breaking entering rate dropped 10% during the same time the SO's burglary/breaking and entering rate increased 182%.. Shock has not presented anything that makes me think he is even remotely concerned about the crime rate.

Conway police officer is on the outs with federal prosecutors after criticizing investigators looking into a 1996 incident that led to another officer's indictment.

The U.S. Attorney's office for the Eastern District in Little Rock is no longer taking drug cases stemming from arrests made by Joe Taylor, an interdiction officer with the Conway Police Department, Taylor recently confirmed. And it's all because of a complaint he filed against a federal agent investigating an alleged beating at the Stacy Motel in October 1996, he contends.

Taylor was one of a number of officers who testified before a federal grand jury about the arrest of William Wynne of Greenbrier at the Stacy Motel in October 1996. Wynne suffered injuries to his head requiring 28 sutures in a struggle with five officers seeking to take him into custody for alleged disorderly conduct, and an FBI investigation of the incident led to the indictment of Officer Charles "Craig" Olsen on a charge of violating Wynne's civil rights.

Taylor said in a recent interview that federal prosecutors have since stopped taking his drug cases.

"I had three cases in January where federal law enforcement, the DEA and the FBI assisted in the investigation, but the U.S. Attorney would not accept the case," Taylor said. "I can think of several people who are escaping justice because the state courts don't have the resources -- the money, time and the manpower -- to invest in both ends, the supply end and the demand end.

"Arrests that might have led somewhere else are basically stopping," Taylor said.

The U.S. Attorney's office refused to comment on the matter.

Is this the man you want? You might want to talk to the FBI about Mr. Taylor to get the truth!!!

So what you are trying to show as the real joe taylor is a guy who did nothing wrong at the Stacy motel, file a complaint against an FBI agent looking into the allegations concerning another officer, complained that he would have to prosecute drug traffickers in state court instead of federal court where indictments might be obtained for out of state suspects. If that is the real joe Taylor, I will vote for him...he is doing something, unlike our current sheriff.

How funny! Andy's scared shitless! If this is the best you boys have got, I'd start preparing for the new sheriff, Joe Taylor, to take over. Andy, you and your goons have been exposed, and there's nothing you can do now to stop it. The thing is, we haven't even came at you with a tenth of what we have. Let me ask you this poor little Andy, have you ever hear of operation honey pot? I have! It's sure gonna be hard campaigning when you're busy covering your fat ass with both hands SON!

just read the story in log cabin about Shock pulling his one or two deputies off the metro swat team.

I know I am voting for Mr. Taylor for Sheriff. I don't understand why Shock would quit having the Sheriff's Dept be part of a SWAT team when obviously he was coming out financially ahead with Conway Police paying most of the cost.

He obviously put Faulkner county residents at risk for not having a trained swat team ready before he pulled out of the Metro Swat team. That choice is indicative of someone who has no plan, can't plan and is more concerned abou saying "look at me, I have a SWAT team" than being part of a collaborative effort than provides a quality swat team to county residents at LITTLE cost to the sheriff dept.

Wow! You mean to tell me we have a man running for sheriff who has the mettle and guts to stand up to the federal government when he believes they're in the wrong or outside their jurisdiction? That's fantastic! I've been waiting for someone like that to run for sheriff for years. It sounds to me like Mr. Taylor is familiar with the legal process for seeking recourse against federal agencies, whereas our current sheriff only knows how to shoot YouTube videos putting them down. Ill take Mr. Taylor's approach any day of the week. It sounds to me like he knows how to beat them at their own game. I'm voting for Joe Taylor.

I would ask that anyone posting anything here to please be respectful in what they post.
My opponent was elected Sheriff based on what he had done and what he pledged to do. I want to keep the Sheriff's race clean and focus on crime and accountability, not issues that have no impact on how a Sheriff can run the office.
I appreciate everyone who has been supportive and continue to ask that everyone be respectful in their comments and actions.
Thank you

I read a post that Shock wrote. Said FCSO would be "out in force" on New Years Eve. What would SHOCK me is if ONE solitary DWI arrest was made by a FCSO deputy.

ZERO impact on illegal drug traffickers in Faulkner County. Conway PD works narcotics for the entire county. When you consider that your crap gets stolen and resold for drug money and that FCSO puts no efforts into either, you have got to be on the same thing as a tweeker if you don't see the problem with the current administration at FCSO.

Shock, you don't have the education, experience or "want to" to be in law enforcement, let alone run an agency. This kind of agency takes law enforcement backwards 20 years.

My vote and money are on Taylor. With all of the people that I've spoken to recently all over the county on this election in particular, I'll bet that Shock is stocking fishing reels at Bass Pro one year from today. While still under qualified for the job at Bass Pro, at least professionalism can begin to grow at Faulkner County SO.

PS: You look like hell wearing the same FCSO "hoodie" to work everyday. You're the laughing stock of this place. Shave your face and put on a shirt and tie for Christ sake. At least try to LOOK a pro.

I couldn't agree more. Maybe Andy can get his personal parasite, Matt Rice, a job sweeping the floors too! They really have become the laughing stock of the county. Joe Taylor signs are popping up everywhere even though Andys goons have been stealing them. Do they not realize how pathetic and unprofessional that makes them look?

Matt Rice is a certified twit! The only reason he made it as far as he did in the S.O. is because mommy has money. The only cases he solved while working CID was the cases that was a give me. If you check, any case he worked that are a who done it, remains unsolved to this day! Sit back and watch, you will see the same crap played this election as the last. I'm not bashing Smith, nor am I taking up for him; but Shock and his campaign camp play dirty tricks on Smith, told lies about him, and verbally attacked his family to set him off. Andy and his people bragged about it at work! Like I said, sit back and watch.

In my line of work i see both city and county side of Law enforcement
and by far the city side runs much smoother with less problems and more convictions and i atribute that to the more well trained officers that work for the city and for the programs that Joe Taylor put in place.
