Also made the huffington post. I hope it's on every channel. Maybe AB can get on the Daily Show, I'd love to hear Jon Stewarts take on it!

Its a sad day for Greeneville and Greene County. Were making national news and its all because of US Nitrogen. Time to run this company out of our community.

I hope Eddie files a lawsuit for violation of his constitutional rights, and police brutality as well!

This story is popping up on every news site so I am sure some sharp lawyer will be in touch with Eddie!

I am not a libratard. I ama republican. however I realize our county mayor is an idiot and the sheriff is a crook. So it doesn't matter what ticket you support its time for a change so crap like this does not happen again.

US Nitrogen means jobs for East Tennessee.
US Nitrogen is one of the few companies that will even come to this town. Most companies take one look at greeneville and all they see is a bunch of lazy, uneducated, toothless welfare recipients with criminal records who are too lazy to show up.
Overholt himself is probably living off disability and welfare, the only reason he went to this town meeting was to subvert and instigate a disturbance protesting this pipe. But guess what: This pipe means jobs. US Nitrogen means jobs.
Most of you people don't know what a job means, because you don't work, you collect checks from Obama.
I don't think 80 jobs is worth polluting our air and water.

US nitrogen is owned by Austin Powder, a company that has left trails of destruction and lawsuits. They got in trouble with the ATF in Penn for not reporting stolen explosives which had been traded for cocaine. So how's that for a family friendly company?!

I believe Austin Powder/US Nitrogen thought all of the powers that be in the county could be bought and the rest of the population was too stupid to notice. Well ... guess again!

I'm sorry but it sounds as if the importance of upholding the constitution is completely lost on you?! Remember "free speech" and "government by THE PEOPLE FOR THE PEOPLE"? Is this not a "conservative" value that republicans like to talk about? THAT is the main point here. Our rights and freedoms are being threatened and we should stand together, liberal, conservative, moderate, to protect these freedoms. Get a clue! This is not a partisan issue!

Well why don't you go out and get a job with US Nitrogen. I'm sure there's a position open for you to lick the CEO's as*hole clean after he pinches a loaf, you d*ck riding c*nt! I pray to Jesus you get hit by a US Nitrogen truck in the parking lot of the truck stop where you work turning tricks for $5.$10 if they want you to pull your dentures out for a gum job.
Read it here folks...your typical elitist liberal response. This is the cream of the liberal crop responding to a poster. Keep up the good work, Libby. You are the poster child for liberals.

My hat goes off to Alan Broyles and Tom Ferguson for expressing an interest in US Nitogen when no other county in the region wanted them. For that matter, no one in the country wanted them. All because of 80 jobs. Ferguson should be run out of town and Broyles will finally go home and hopefully stop trying to be a politician.

Greene County needs to comply with ADA guidelines which Mr. Overholt requested and was arrested! It is WRONG regardless of which side of the fence you sit! The Greeneville Police Department follow a directive from Mayor Broyles to escort Mr. Overholt out but BOTH violated Constitutional rights and Federal ADA guidelines of Public Meetings and BOTH are perceived as bullying!
What does THIS EXAMPLE portray to those high school seniors possibly considering a career in county and civic leadership?

agree I think Mr Overholt should SUE the CITY.. he has thousands of witnesses. the police and mayor wanted to show their ass. on TAPE.. make them PAY. they should be arrested its time the police when make a mistake the pay for it.. they are not above the LAW... they and mayor broke the law.. also little thing called the open meetings act. in TN... which gave public the right to be there and speak..

They just followed procedure...Nothing will stand in court. Its following guidelines..and the community wasn't following the rules...
Interruptions — Procedure During public meetings.
In the event that any meeting is interrupted by a group or groups of persons so as to render the orderly conduct of such meeting unfeasible and order cannot be restored by the removal of individuals who are interrupting the meeting, the members of the governing body conducting the meeting may order the meeting room cleared and continue in session or may adjourn the meeting and reconvene at another location selected by majority vote of the members. In such a session, final disposition may be taken only on matters appearing on the agenda. Representatives of the press or other news media, except those participating in the disturbance, shall be allowed to attend any session held pursuant to this section. Nothing in this section shall prohibit the governing body from establishing a procedure for readmitting an individual or individuals not responsible for disturbing the orderly conduct of the meeting

Omg! at his age i sure hope he doesn't have to work, he earned his army check and his social security. and people would be glad to work if the economy wasn't so bad. who is to judge another for not being able to find work at this time? what a bad attitude. so egoistical.primitive behavior. wow!
