Icould not believe what i read in the voice newspaper the other day. All earl cole could talk about was how rude he was treated by police officers at the scene of sunday's tragedy. With two officers dead and two critically wounded, this man has the gall to verbally attack police officers who were responding to a life and death situation. And then to make matters worse he stated that when he saw tazewell counties deputies go up the holler he knew it would soon be over,because they run a very efficent force, i took this as a direct insult to buchanan co's sheriff's dept. did anyone else.mr. cole is good at hollering freedom of the press, how about a little respect for the people who put their lives on the line every day to protect that right.

The Voice tells it like it is, and they don't care whose feelings get hurt over it. And they are not in bed with the powerful big shots.

If you actually read what he wrote he was told to leave by state not by county. The state took over the case the moment they arrived on scene. It was no longer Buchanan County's jurisdiction. Buchanan County had a stake in the case when the first two officers were shot...at that point they were off the case. Instead of getting on here acting a fool it would be more beneficial if you educated yourself with the laws.

I don't recall WCYB being told to leave the scene. Hypocritical much...I think so.

Mr Earl Cole is a reporter and he was trying to do his job in a correct manner just like WCYB News. No difference. He does not get his reports from topix or hear say or gossip. I hope he keeps up the good work and continues to keep us informed.

I like the Voice, it tells us what's really going on. It's not a cover job......

Mr. Cole's writings are almost the same as a topix discussion. I cannot stand to even look at The Voice! I would sooner choke on my own money than spend it Mr. Cole's ravings. Tamara Neo, shame on you for supporting this lunatic, and shame on you for not serving the county the way it deserves to be served, get off the radio and start helping our people, its only what you were elected to do.

Tamra Neo supports Mr Cole because she knows that what he prints is accurate , to the point , and reliable. You evidently have had something printed form the records at the court house that wasn't a pretty picture. I guess you do want her off the radio. Are you afraid Mr. Cole might miss something only for her to mention it on the radio? I support both of them for letting Buchanan Co.know what is going on, and helping us in any way they can by letting us call in with complaints that nobody else will even let us mention. They are both an asset to this County and I hope we have them around for a long time .May God Bless Them Both.

You are crazy. Mrs Neo was the only one who would ever disagree with Earl when he was out there on a conspiracy theory or just plain wrong. And she hasn't been on his radio show for a year now. She's got her own and makes a point of bringing up all the good things that are happening in the county. Mrs. Neo has served this community better than any commonwealth I can remember and I been here all my life.

so shame on you.

Two officers dead two injured and many many people's life threated at the time he was trying to stick his nose in the middle. No respect for authority and he could have gotten the info after the gunman was under control and deskins was safe. That's what WCYB, WJHL, and THE VA MOUNTAINEER did. ASo repectful by those news organization. Can't say the same about him though!!!!!!!!!!

He was standing in a public area taking pictures, no where near the area of the incident. I'm sorry mein fuhrer but he had every right to be doing what he was doing. If the law enforcement officers thought he was being disrespectful then they had every right to voice their opinion and ask him to stop. They had no right to threaten him and intimidate him to get him to comply with their wishes. If he was hindering anyone in the performance of their duties then he should have been arrested after the first warning. If he was just being irritating then he should have just been ignored.

i think we would have been in trouble if we had to handle that mess with out sheriffs dept they cant find a stolen vehicle that goes by in a road check lol this county isnt up to date with weapons like that man had and sure the hell dont know how to use them so the voice is right we need to be thankful to tazewell and all the surrounding counties but i think that tazewell should have done more in the pizza plus murders so all we can do is pray for shane charles and hope that we can get more training to our deputies and weapons and hope they dont get trigger happy i know i would be..

bottom line is now a days most agencies have a person assigned to handle the media. sgt lowe with the state police is one of these persons. i'm sure foster has never thought of putting someone in that position because it hasn't ever been needed. sgt lowe did a great job and this was his primary job, to do just that, handle the media. he bailed foster out and by watching the news, foster didn't perform very well, pressure really got to him. yes, i know he was emotionally involved and that is the very reason he needs to get some training or appoint someone in the dept. to handle this kind of action. media reporters will have no mercey and all they want is the news, so they can get ratings. foster had enuff to deal with and his first and foremost priorties should have been to the fallen officers. after newberry was apprehended foster should have been at the hospitals looking after his men, not worrying about a press confgerence. remember at that point it didn't look to good for one of the officers, why wasn't he there?

The VA Mountaineer had a close-up photo on the front page of their paper, so they must have been allowed close up. Why not Mr. Cole? This is discrimination, something that Buchanan County is well known for. The photo showed someone being loaded onto a helicopter.
