This is yet another example of corruption within the city of Hinton police department.I think they should fire all of the local police and hire new ones.Preferably ones who aren't completely incompetent.Thank God for Sheriff Wheeler and the Sheriffs Department or this would be a completely lawless town.

what is it going to take for someone to take control and do something with that police dept.? I don't care how short handed you are you don't hire unqualified punks to run a police dept. it sounds to me like they are causing for accidents and crime than they ar preventing.

First off, the officer has been with the department for several years and is completely compotent and well-trained. He is a respected for his dedication he has proved to the police dept. over the years.
Second, these alegations are complete non-sense.
I understand that there have been several witnessess who have come foward in the officers be-half and that is great. Also the boy that claims he had been assaulted by the officer was simply apprehendeed after commiting several criminal offenses, he had been exposing himself in public and fled from police when they attempted to stop him. The officer was able to apprehend him without causing or recieving any injuries-GREAT JOB! but now is being ridiculed by the media as the bad guy becuase the kids mom dont think the police should apprehend juviniles. Give this cop a brake he was doin what we pay him to do

I don't know which Hinton police officer it was since that information wasn't given out but I do know that most of those police officers are not well trained that when they were hired they had not even been to police academy. And yes the boys family shoud be very glad that they apprhended him with out injuring him badly or even killing him. I hope that you or none of your family members ever really need one of those police officers to help them because you will be very disappointed and i'm sure you will change your attitude.

How would you know that information non of it hasn't been on the news.
Unless your a cop in Hinton and your standing up for one of your friends,and if that's true or not wouldn't it be illegal to post information like that about an ongoing investigation.

yeah mark why don't you tell us how you know all this information. and while your at it tell us who the cop was since you know he's been in the dept. for several years and is so well trained. You must be in the dept yourself or family to someone in the dept to know all this information that hasn't been released to the public.

Hinton Is a corrupt Mountain Town , The Chief Has no spine nor balls his only 23yrs old for christ sake Hes way to immature to run a police dept and most of the officers are young so put those two things together and its a bad combonation! The police in hinton are rude and hot headed all the officers there have either be denied employment with and othe agency or they have work at another agency and been fire for wrong doing. I agree with rose they need to fire all th officers and hire new one. If they gave all there officers a drug test I know half of them would fail even the chief!!! And I dont know about you but I dont want drug users running around with a badge and gun . I am so glad I dont live in that hell hole anymore My house got broken into many times and the police wouldnt do a thing . Hell it was probably the city police who did it I wouldnt put anything past those crooked cops . I thought the FBI'S job was to put crooked cops in jail . Its not like the cops in hinton are all that smart so its not like there covering up everything. And for those of you reading this dont get me wrong I appreciate the police and respect them they put there lives on the line everyday for little pay but the cops in hinton arent cops there crooks ask anyone who lives there they,ll tell ya

I know with all my heart these immature, hot headed, rookie, crooked cops had something to do with an accident in which my brother was killed in. But I just can't prove it, they all cover up for each other. the accident was july 22 2003 near bass lake campground I would greatly appreciate any information anyone could give me about this accident. thanks.

I agree with you on that summer red.If we didn't have the sheriffs dept. we'd be sh** out of luck.
You will never hear me say any thing bad about sheriff Wheeler or the sheriffs dept.

i'm back , and i have great news for all of you who hate the local law in Hinton. Adkins-Gray-Taylor-Ratliff-McK inny-Peal-Cook- have all left or are getting ready to leave for higher paying jobs. There will be a completely new force including a new Chief. I hope u like them better or maybe u can apply and make a difference yuyorself.

Dorothy, I recall when when u're brother past away in 2003, I'm very sorry for u're loss. but the police was not the cause of it, it was alcohol and the gas pedal

Dorothy you called the cops a lot of bad and hurtful things like immature, crooked and hot-headed, that is pretty harsh. I doubt u know any of them very well. I obviously do, thats why I take up for them. I know they are not crooked. Yes they are young, no they are not super intelligent but they do have a difficult job. They do the best they can and they try to make a difference. Or they did try but now most of them work for the railroad. i'm looking foward to the seeing the next group of hinton police officers

Cook is a good man i'll never say any thing bad about him but you say their not crooked.Then tell me why a officer (I won't name names)was suspended after he was caught getting his d*** sucked by that girl Kellie who worked at Unkl Rays while he was on duty.If he wants to do those things he should do them on his own time not the tax payers.
Heres the crooked part she said she did it to get out of a DWI,and she did.
