Well any run ins with a cop are nobodys fault but your own. That's typical, you don't like him because he's caused you some problems! HAHA. yeah yeah.. It's all HIS FAULT. I'm so sure!

a run in with a copy IS NOT always your own fault. As said before - they aren't superhuman-- they make mistakes and Matt makes plenty of them. He has caused me major problems in my life and had no basis whatsoever except he had a grudge to settle and not even with me.
He's a true asshole and a big headed one at that.

You all crack me up! So since Matt is a cop, he cant joke around? Really? That's funny because i know your alls career is NOT gossipers, so you need to stick to what you DO & KNOW. Matt is a very good Daddy & I personally don't think ANY of you have any right to tell him that his kids will suffer. You obviously don't know him on a personal level ESPECIALLY if you took his facebook posts seriously! He jokes around Alot, so mind your own business & concentrate on your OWN problems cause IF this is all you have to do is sit around and blab about others, than that's a sign you most definetly have HUGE PROBLEMS!
okay, Matt, whatever.....

Any statement that begins with I heard that he... Is a lie.(big mama) Get a life people instead of trying to find reasons to put others down to make you feel better about yourself. Although what he put on his facebook is not something I would post its something that I see a lot of people posting he is a cop not super human he can make mistakes.
Law enforcement (escpecially those elected to their office) are and should be held to a little high standard....not super human but not an arrogant asshole either. Matt has a lot of issues not just posting studid stuff on FB. Shofner needs to take a look at his behavior and have a talk with him.

The only thing im gonna say is this. Matt does have his professional flaws. I believe he only arrests those that he takes a dislike to, while turning a blind-eye to his own crowd of law-breakers. I can't say that Kentucky has a written law against that. If you can, file the complaint against him, and get your day in court. I find it funny, that if he is such a terrible person, and with today's technology. Cell phone video recorders, why there isnt more evidence to his mis-deeds?

What he said on his facebook, he probably shouldn't have said. What he does in his personal life is none of my business. What he does for my county/city is a public job. Any of you ever worked in a public service position? When and if you ever do, you will see that it's not that easy. You really do get tired and aggrivated with stupidity. It takes kindness, patience, a lot of biting your tongue, a little meanness sometimes, and yes...it's stressful. So back off what the fella said on FB..he's just a man after all.

While it is true he has a personal life, he is a law enforcement officer 24/7. I believe he should know that.

What he says at his home to people in his home is his business.

But what he puts on a public forum is the public's business. While I don't find what he said that big a deal, it could affect a case, remember Mark Furman of the OJ case.

As I went thru his friends list, and Russel Mccoys, I do feel much better about them. They know where my loved ones are and I know where their's are.

Thank you

Matt Darst is one hell of a person. He is a great daddy and is just trying to make it. people on here don't like him because he does what the rest of the sherrif's office doesn't do..he arrests people who break the law. As far as his personal life andhis facebook goes, you all are flippin crazy. He has his right to an opinion just like you all do. He doesn't do anything but take care of his kids.

I worked in public service and with the worst part of the public for 18 years. If you choose to work with the public you have to take into consideration that you will be in thepublic's eye. This is especially true in a small town. The point is from my dealings with Matt Darst - He DOESN'T use kindness, patience, biting his tounge, etc. He picks and chooses who he wants to arrest and who he wants to let slide based on his own preferences. He twists the truth to get a charge against someone. Then he will hound that person even after the charge is dismissed. And then to post something like this on a social network site. That's right he's a man and he should think about finding another job....soon.

yeah right...while he is screwing everything that will mess with him. and stealing and lying in his job. and arresting some people he doesn't like and letting others go (that he likes) No, he doesn't arrest everyone who breaks the law and YES he arrests several that don't break the law. He has a right to his stupid ass opinion but he should not be a low class hillbilly idiot and post his opinion on a public site. This was the same as putting ona billlboard or in the local paper.
BTW Can't believe the paper hasn't picked up on this yet. It's definitely news but you can bet she won't print anything about this.

Personally I do not know what Dep. Darst does or does not do.

The few times I have interacted with him in his professional capacity his conduct was acceptable to me.

I am not his friend or foe.

To say he is a good father which makes him a good cop is absurd. Jesse James was a great father, but I would not have wanted to be in a bank he robbed.

ALL authority figures needs to take into account the times we are living in, and the potential consequences of the statements/actions they make.

People are under intense pressure, and what may be taken as a joke a few years ago, may not be so today.

As a country and community we are in uncharted waters in many ways. We need to be able to trust our LOCAL public service professionals more than ever. I don't think those kind of comments inspire that trust.

While my above comment did not make a threat, it could be threatening. As was Dep. Darst post in FB.

If Darst would do his job, that he is sworn to do, then the drugs in Buffalo would thin out severly. He is aware of many in Buffalo that not only use, but traffic. While he ignores certain people, those that are aware of his association with them, are angry to be arrested while his chosen "Hebrews" run free to. McCoy is just as bad, and after finally meeting Bradley S. I do not have much faith in either Bobby nor Tammy Shoffner. Good luck Larue, you people need all the help you can get. The ones of you that arent on drugs are being attacked by them thru your children and grandchildren, while you are too uneducated to do anything about it.

All I know is a lot of young women have complained to me and my friends about his excessive flirtation and 'coming on' to them. Some have told me they know he had sex with more than one young woman ----here's a thought....maybe he was on duty. He sure thinks he looks big and tough in that uniform with the big gun strapped to his side. BTW Matt, you should think a little more carefully about where you wear that gun...some places it just looks stupid. think about it.
