Would someone please tell me why it is the police can be called to a place where drugs are going down and they never do anything about it? What is wrong with our law enforcement today? We have watched our neighbor deal drugs and have called the police and they do nothing. Craig Peavlers house on Allah Ave is nothing but a drug house and the police have been called when activity has been going on there, and the police just sit in the church parking lot and watch?

It's got a lot to do with the Constitution. You calling the police and reporting drug activity certainly is helpful, but it's not probable cause to issue a warrant. What do you expect to happen? Every patrolman and deputy sheriff in the county to arrive and knock the front door down with a battering ram... just because you called?

Now you say that you have watched your neighbor deal drugs. What do you mean by that exactly? Aren't you really saying that you've seen people come to his house at all hours of the day and night? That's not against the law.

I'd suggest that you study up on when police can stop someone and when a search warrant can be issued. Having a lot of "company" isn't probable cause for anything.

It would be great to know why cops think its OK to drive like they are in the getaway car. I swear, some of them are full throttle on every takeoff and do 20 over the speed limit. The dark haired chubby one is going to kill someone!! Oh, and they drive this way with their lights OFF!! Maybe it is time to bring back the citizens arrest.

Why don't you call the sheriff or chief about it?

If you guys think the police department is doing such a bad job or are going to cause accidents get their car number and call the police chief. If you don't say or do anything about it then what can be done??? Complaining about it on topixs does not change a darn thing! Plus I'd like to see some of you walk a day in their shoes..

Well I can tell you reporting mishaps to the chief will do something. They have had many reports/complaints on one officer and the chief is working on investigating these reports. The chief does take reports seriously and will do something about it.

The chief isn't doing anything . I filed a complaint on the 1 cop your probably talking about 6 months ago . The chief told me they had already had 17 complaints on him . When the investigiation was over , chief said cop was having a bad day & dimissed the case .

Yes like the chief was going to investigate Jason Elder when parents first filed their complaint. Well what was done by a chief in command then. NOTHING. Like it will be done again about any of their police officers.

Yes, it makes perfect sense to prove a point by hitting someone with your car ONLY when you have your daughter IN the car with you! True, the officer should have yielded at the sign but other than taking a chance on hurting your daughter what was going to change about this situation by having her in the car? You should have went on and let him hit you. Maybe by some chance it might would have knocked some sense into you so that you wouldn't be posting stupid shit like this!! Who in their right mind would want to have a wreck with their child in the car?

there are a few good police officers and then there are those that would rather eat than do their job. Mr. Godbey still does a pretty good job. But Peyton that's another story in itself.

I gotta agree with u digger on this . I have company like a lot of us do but weren't not doing dope unless taking the occasional ibuprofen ! Just becos someone has some company & it may be late at night , does not a drug deal make . That's one of the bad things about living in small community . Too many got their noses against the window looking at neighbors and off to Topix they go . Don't be a nosy neighbor .
