If all the politics could just be brushed aside, then we could get some professional law enforcement in Hunt County. The average deputy is hard-working and is only hindered by all this turmoil. But I still say a lot of the "old guard" are upset because they long for the days when the Sheriff (Anderson) was asleep in his office.

I guess we've solved all the murders and drug crimes, since now we're crackin' down on Grannies playing 8-liners. Who really care about this?

Probably the people and families of those robbed at gun point working there, the families of those murdered at them in our county, those affected by those who are selling drugs/weapons out of them, and those affected by the prostitution taking place in them. More crimes happen in the game rooms because it goes unreported than any other place in the county. If you think it's 80 grandparents playing there, let you kids go play with them....

One of Meeks' main campaign promises was to shut down the game rooms. Like it or not, he seems serious about doing just that. Remember, it was during the previous sheriff when Channel 8 came out and made it sound like we were the illegal game room capital of the free world, even though I have no doubt there are plenty of game rooms in Dallas County as well.

While off subject, I will say I am NOT impressed with Joe Knight. At what point is it appropriate to send emails invite people to church that have signed up for friend of the sheriff emails??? It was suppose to be news alerts, weather ect.....I have a church that I love "no thank you, Mr. Knight" Now please get back to work doing something a cop does not a pastor.

Knight should pay for using that e-mail service and then it should be available to all the other churches ( and businesses) for the same price. Otherwise, he needs to be called on the carpet just like the other "bubbas" who think they own public property. THIS SHOULD BE FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT ONLY - NOT RELIGIOUS PROSLETYSING!

When will the citizens of Hunt County start holding Elected Officials and their employees accountable. Why is it that the Chief Deputy (O excuse me UNDERSHERIFF) not office out of the Sheriffs Office. That is what deputies tell. They say that he offices out of his CHURCH OFFICE. Why is this. Does anyone care! If you as a citizen of this county care you would call the Sheriffs Office and ask Sheriff Meeks. And while you have him on the phone ask him why the Freinds of the Sheriff web site is not used for what it was intended for. The citizens during the election were told that the Freinds of the Sheriff would be used to notify citizens of criminal activity in their area so they could help the Sheriff's Office with a set of extra eyes. You can read more in the Greenville Banner Newspaper about crime in the county. But if you want to hear about badge ceromonies or donations so you can get a T-Shirt (Freinds of the Sheriff) and other activities look at the Freinds of the Sheriff. Also deputies complain of all the bad morale because of Chief Deputy Knight. When is Meeks going to open his eyes and get rid of Knight so he might still have a chance to salvage the rest of his term as Sheriff. All of these wrongdoings will come out eventually and he won't be able to be re-elected. It's so Sad.

At least he got rid of some of the worst "old guard" at the Sheriff's Office. They may be some of the ones complaining the loudest right now. They need to move on and MOVE OUT.

I don't know most of them by name, but I know Mike Parker needed to go. He was manipulative and smeared people just for political purposes. He was less about law enforcement than he was about Mike Parker.

James - you really got "amazed" fired up on the previous page. Federal investigations? an Evil triumvurate between the Sheriff, Undersheriff (granted, why can't it be Chief Deputy, this ain't England) and the "henchman" Wilhelm? What's that all about? More importantly, who did these three muscle out of the "Sheriff's Office".

I think I'm starting to see the true pattern here.

didn't see it but heard about it - i can't belive this site isn't burning up with comments. i usually just read, but had to ask somebody - what was the deal about the insurance claim - was it on the Sheriff's house or a Deputy's car that responded to his "emergency"?

It took awhile but the Commissioners finally refused to give in to the Sheriff. He was a terrible and dishonest businessman in this County for years. He has never been able to handle his personal finances. What would make anyone think he could responsibly handle a budget of several million dollars.
