Well i would like to say that 1-2-3 is right.You have to clean up your own house before you clean up others. And its hard to do that if you did drugs yourself and was a convicted felon. I guess Hamlin will give anyone a gun. OH! thats right he's a preacher that makes everything ok. Thats when he found God,when he got caught (drugs,breaking n entering) and gets fired from the school as a janitor for messing around with the girls. And for the 21 year old son kick him out or arrest him for doing drugs,he's cleaning up the town of the drugs well don't his son live with mommy and daddy? And his son gets fired from a job the apple don't fall far from that tree.
It sounds like to me someone is jealous and as far as the job he is still working and for the girls maybe you came on to him and he turned you down

I think Mayor Wilkinson is doing a fine job. As for the comments about the past, thats just it THE PAST. People do change and some for the BETTER. Sounds to me like some are jealous. As for the son are you positive about the drugs. Maybe you are afraid you will get busted and are trying to put blame on someone else. I think he has a wonderful family and his son is WORKING are YOU? Or are you one of those dead beat people that we work and support every month while you set on your lazy but and do nothing? Oops you are doing something your talking about things you know nothing about, while you set on your lazy but and let everyone working support. I will pray for you.

Kelly You said it well. I was thinkin the same exact thing while I was readin. These ppl are jus talkin smack cus they are afraid their little "jobs" runnin meth labs are gonna get busted and get some some time with Big Bubba. OR He's already got someone close to them busted and they are mad about it. Chris is a GREAT guy. he'd do ANYTHING for ANYBODY if he can. Im glad he's improving the town. Im out of there for good! Thank gosh. Cus the whole town runs on drugs just about. the welfare office, the court house, and everywhere u go.

Some of you who are on here defending the mayor might want to go over to the Harts topix site and comment on the thread about his resignation as pastor. There is a guy on there signing in from Texas and everywhere else talking back and forth with himself pretending to be multiple people and really making serious charges against the mayor. He is doing it anonymously, of course. How trashy.

Anonymous just as you are. No multiple identities, however.

Serious charges by your definition means telling the truth. Chris has an extensive substance abuse background and the attendant legal issues that goes with that. He also has demonstrated he isn't very swift with financial issues since he is a bankrupt of record.

The largest issue is the faux Chief of Police stunt. Others are the practice of looking the other way when officers violate citizens civil rights.

The folks in this thread are the same ones in the thread you reference. Writing patterns are the same as well as logic examples given in their arguments.

Sadly, Chris and the Sheriff blather endless senseless rhetoric which makes the drug issues worse. Effective drug control programs are conducted by quiet, methodical police work while respecting the constitutional rights of the citizens and the accused.

Recently Farley spouted that the druggies would kill you for a dollar or some such bullsh** statement. There are not examples to prove that but should there be a violent confrontation he has given the deputies oblique approval to use excessive force. The Sheriff's "plan" appeared to be a solid step in the right direction but he queered the deal with his reckless rhetoric.

Most recently the ex military copy (lambert) that resigned whined that while his/their work in the drug effort was good, the failure was the court releasing the folks arrested "too soon" "back on the street". He is obviously so poorly educated that he fails to recognize the Courts are doing their job by the law as they are supposed to do. His bitch should be with the Legislature to change the laws. Chris is equally willingly ignorant.

He will be re-elected. And if he isn't, shame on Hamlin. He is a wonderful mayor. A good church man. He keeps us safe from drugs. If you don't want a speeding ticket in Hamlin, don't speed! He is Lincoln County's mayor!

stupid comments

Hey, stupid. By "Lincoln County's mayor," I meant that he is the mayor of our largest town. Remember when they used to call New York's mayor "America's mayor?" You are a complete dummy. You can't even spell "lol." Your grammar blows. Better go back and finish the third grade. The mayor does not need to take a test to be a cop. He's the mayor. How dumb you are.

There seems to be a pattern with a lot of preacher's children. Never understood how it happens, but quite a few end up on drugs.

He is the mayor and chief of police. A gun is needed to carry out that duty. The same would apply to someone elected sheriff. A felon can run for office and the law allows them to carry a gun. It's a loophole

The challenge to Mr. Wilkerson, a professing Christian, is to become truthful and provide an accurate copy of his lifelong police record to the Lincoln Journal for publication. I'm thinking that he doesn't do it someone else will within a few days. He doesn't have to carry a gun to pretend to be police chief. I understand that our Sheriff does not carry a gun. A principle reason is he is not a certified police officer and hasn't graduated from the academy.

Chris won't do it because as Mayor and as a minister he is a fraud.
