Home rule today. Home rule tomorrow. Home rule for ever.
The home rule act would put a stop to corruption like Steve burns and his department. Term limits for every one. That way people like Steve crooked burns can not make a career at the expense of the tax payers.

I live off of white sands road. I have had my barn broke into twice and my house once. I called sheriffs department and only once did they come out. They told me they had bigger cases to solve than my $500 case. Well let me tell you Steve and all who reads this. Me and my little farm may not mean shit too you. But I have worked my ass off to get what I got. So rest to sure I am going to do all I can too make sure this is your last year as county sheriff. You are one sorry liying person. I have always voted for you and had my buddies at south greene fire department vote for you. Well no more Steve. I don't care who is running against you. They got my vote. My familys vote and anybody that will listen too me votes. Your days of liying and running the tax payers into the ground are over. I hate to say it but if Eddie Obrian was running against you I would vote for him. He may be nuts but he is not a liar such as you Steve. So don't bother to call me or stop by here to put up your stupid yellow sign. You had your chance 4 months ago and did not even call.

Randy I know you and the reason they probably did not come out is because it's probably your family that stolen your stuff. However I do agree that Steve Burns needs to go and his department needs to ship up. The way they do business is not with integrity. Which is what a sheriffs department is supposed to have.

I for one know first hand how the Greene county sheriffs dept is. They will lie on the stand under oath to get an indictment yet they get no reprimand or anything where as one of us would get a perjury charge. They have to justify their jobs so they pin charges on innocent people and let the ones that buy or blow them off go free. There are so many useless people in the sheriffs dept its unreal for a county this size and that's why it takes so much money to run. First thing you hear when you walk in up there is that Steve Burns has the best weed in town. Between the weed sales and the stolen property they know he had, you would think that he would be held accountable. Of course that's just the tip of the iceberg with his greedy crooked a$$.I guess that's how he gets the money to buy his way out of s--t. He actually had guns in his possession that were confiscated in the county and supposed to have been in the evidence room. His time is coming.

I like how many perfectly usable autos are sitting unused down on Summer Street at their place by the workhouse. Lots of tax payer waste. Auction them while they still have value instead of letting them sit and rot! Wa$te our tax payer money!!!
I actually drove by there a few days ago & noticed this & thought the same thing myself. Seems like a lot of gov waste that you & me pay for.

That is only a small part of what Steve Burns waste. The list can and does go on and on about what tax dollars the sheriff burns up. Plus he always wants more and more.

I am not afraid to put my real name on here. I am Billy Davis I have never been in jail or in trouble. So don't go saying oh you must be a person Steve put in jail. No he did not. However I will say this. Steve is in with the fire departments in the county. Also the rescue squad is in with him. So it is hard to beat a crooked sheriff when he has so many friends. His two biggest friends is the worthless greeneville sun and Scott niswonger. So the sun will make him look like Christ and Scott will give money and buy off the election officials and office like the past 2 elections. So until fbi or tbi get him he will always be the sheriff. The votes never get counted right and steve is always on the take to stay in office.

I really think this thread is so funny. The same person posting over and over under different names saying the same stuff. I understand that you may want a change but a lot of the things you're accusing people of just aren't possible. A department as a whole cannot ignore a robbery. There has to be more to your story much like there is to most stories. The amount of ignorance on this site cracks me up. I don't care who the head of these departments is - people are always going to speculate and make up stories.

and furthermore, is it really that hard to believe that some people are just good people? someone is always going to have something negative to say, but maybe we all need to stop and think that if bad things haven't come out about a person, maybe they really are a good person.

Your beat this time Steve. That is if the election commission office does not cheat for you. Or Avery Ayers does not switch the votes around at debusk school.
The truth will soon come out.

Everyone who thinks Steve burns is a great sheriff should go to Greene in 14.com then click on the tbi link to see how bad greene county is in crime being solved. People of Greene County it's time for a change and time for someone new. Steve has been in way to long. He has forgot that he works for us the tax payers.

I agree. I also just think you can be in office too long. Steve is one that I feel has been in a little bit too long.

Steve is out there on the tax payers time putting up signs and driving around in the county car. Who pays that gas? We do. How about Steve doing like every one else does that runs for office. Use your own car Steve. Use your gas that you pay for not greene county. Any one that votes for him again is a fool. He is not a republican he is a dirty old democrat. Always wants more money bigger jail and more and more.
How about we fix a road or two in this county before we build a jail.
How about term limits. You have been sheriff way to long and your department is a joke. Make your department clean up and look like law enforcement instead of the bad news bears.
I just pray the voters of Greene County show up this time to vote and they send this man to the house. Too much crime in this county and nothing being done about it. I am Larry Rollins of midway and I will not be voting for you ever again. The last election was the last. If Greene County is smart and tried of having their house broken into like mine they will make a stand and vote you out. Calling the sheriff department in this county in like calling in a pizza. You may get someone on the phone to place an order then again you may not. This is not what we need anymore in this County. I am done and over it. Vote Greene. and if that does not work vote hankins. Heck I take Eddie Obrain over what we got now. At least Eddie would hit a robber in the head with a shovel.
