Well it seems that u might not be that smart. The citizens hire and fire him, I.e. elections....commissioners certainly don't control that. They just control our purse.

Greeneville needs a new jail. I spent 7 monthes in Hawkins county. 3 monthes of that was spent sleeping on the concrete floor because of over crowding. Then they built the jc and I finally had a bed. Greeneville needs a jc.Its already over crowded.

Do you think that every drug dealer/user,theif,drunk and child molester in the county should be locked up???? Well guess what,they have to have a place to go.If you want those folks off the streets were gonna have to build a place to put them.Cant have it both ways.

I think thy should be locked up, but not given the niceties of a 40 million jail. This is all about self image. Do like Arizona and put them in tents. Take Away their tv and Internet and soft beds. Punish them.... Isn't that what jail is for?

. Perhaps because the conditions weren't so good when you were there, it will serve as a good reminder so that you don't want to go back and will make better decisions.

QUOTE who="David"Burns is a good sheriff. Hardly. He is absolutely the biggest liberal politician around. More. More. More. I need a new jail. I need more cars. What I have isn't good enough. Lordy, crime is through the roof. Greene co is one of, if not the the worst in State for crimes solved. Hires a bunch of hoodlums that prey on our citizens. Budget has more than doubled in eight years. Good? No! I think horrible. About anyone could do better and save a lot of money.

How about we contract the jail business out to a private firm. Then let them build it and run it.

. Even worse, Burns will convince everyone that we can borrow the money, not make any payments for three years or so, then have a huge tax increase when everyone has forgotten about how it all came about in the first place. If any of these commissioners vote for this they should be voted out. Bottom line. They need to get along with what they have.

The fact that Tim White got off the way he did without even an apology for his unethical behavior just shows that our local government cannot be trusted. Only a few in there are really trying to do what is right. The rest are just playing the game and scamming the people with untruths.

It's too bad the leaders tax returns aren't open for the public to see. But then again all the crooked deals are under the table, so it's not getting reported to the IRS anyways.
