Buy a paper, all the small timers are in it. More Gvegas bullcrap. They blow everything out of proportion to make themselves look good and do little to stop these druggies. Lets see these "pain clinics" shut down and the "Doctors" that are running them in jail and plastered all over the news.

The best way to get information on drug dealers and users would be to publicize a big arrest in the local paper, then watch the social media like (topix) and see who is being talked about . Every one of you who mentioned a drug dealer by name is an unpaid informant working for the city and county police.
I am sure they appreciate the info !!

Wow that's pretty harsh. Don't get me wrong, I hate them too, but I wish everyone would remember that nice doctor you're sitting beside in church, is the same one that's feeding these pills like they are skittles.

I know for a fact of doctors you can go to and tell them you hurt your elbow and he'll send you out of there with a prescription for 90 pain pills and throw in some Xanax because he's worried that the hurt elbow might be stressing you out. And don't get me started on that pain clinic here in town. Oh the stories I could tell you about that place.

So if want the pill heads dead, I think you should throw the pill feeding docs in hells fire with them.

You watch too much TV. The best way to get information on drug dealers is to bust their supplier (good ol Doc.), who in turn gives up as many as he can to save his own ass (rehab and probation). Then out of those names (around 45-50), they see what names ALL of those people will spill after they proposition a "deal" (like they did the Doc.) if they will only give them some names. It is silly to even expect names in an "undercover operation", until the operation is complete.

Well, it isn't that crazy. If someone was to give up names after they were busted, the task force assigned to that case would probably sit back a bit (a month or so in the Doc's case) and collect as much information on those names as possible. That way when they go to the judge wanting a search warrant, they will have all the proof they need at the exact time they wanna kick in some doors. They may have brought 50 in, but I would say that the 20 were the only ones they could dig up charges on, other than word of mouth. I am sure they tried scaring the hell out of everyone they took in though.

So there really was just 20 arrested? And it was a mix of charges ranging from crack sales, food stamp fraud, bribery? maybe 3 drug busts and 17 random charges? and then they call it a major drug bust on the news and report false info? Told the news theyd release the names later knowing that everyone would follow. did they do this so that we would follow the news and see that they lie? bunch of bs it sounds like to me. Maybe election time is around the corner and that big florida to tennessee pill bust just isnt there any more for them to make a big deal out of again.

Snitch is such a stupid word used by the low life's of the community. I hope someone calls out every punk drug dealer in the county on here. And maybe one day, when you have young children Wandering and grow up, you will understand why. If you already have young children, and have this opinion, then you are just plain stupid.
You think it's a stupid word till you snitch on the wrong people and they show up at your door step. Lil bish

These people will probably get max sentences and fines. Meanwhile, others can distribute thousands of pills and just hire an attorney to get them off. If you know the right people, you can get away with anything in this town.
David hawk comes to mind. He breaks the laws that he makes and has the FULL support of the republican house? This dude was drunk on Sunday morning, punched his wife in the face while she was holding an infant and the republican house applauded him and the people of Greene county reelected him.

The world is upside down.

Family values in greeneville= Drunken wife beating .. What a bunch of churches there must be there, eh?

Did you personally witness all these allegations? It appears "family values" can't let it go.
