I personally know John Blome and know he probably feels horrible about what happened. The guy wouldn't hurt anyone. Reminds me of Hoss on "Bonanza": big ol' guy with a soft heart. Just probably got focused on responding to the fire Sunday night on behalf of the Cherryvale Rural Fire Division and didn't see the pedestrian. Carson Street is so poorly lit that I have always wondered how more people have not been hit on that street. It's a bad deal for everyone. Hope Thomas Morehead recovers from his injuries, and hope ol' John gets back in the saddle and doesn't hang his head in shame.

I guess it isnt so much a good ole boy story as you might have wished. Blome (Assistant Rural Fire Chief for Cherryvale Rural Fire) was reportedly headed to a fire call in his own pickup truck at the orders of the Cherryvale Rural Fire Chief (and city council member in the city of Cherryvale) Lew Forman Jr. and Blome reportedly hit the pedestrian and knew it, yet continued on like nothing happened, when the deputy caught up to Blome he was at the fire, and lied and said he didnt know how his truck was damaged and that it happened somewhere else, bad thing is pieces of the truck were found by the injured victim on the street where he hit him. The deputy then arrested him and put him in the county jail. Knowing this bunch and how they operate, they will probably unfairly chew ass on *all* firefighters in the county and make up a slew of rediculas rules for firemen to follow all because of an incident involving one, they always get all excited then overcompensate. Cant really blame them though, this guy that was hit could sue the county for a pretty penny if he wanted to and win.

The guy that got hit should not only sue the county,he should also sue the liven sh.t out of the people who hit him and ran.What a couple of losers.

Accidents happen. Hit and run is not an accident. Its a crime. That said, I want to remind all readers of this thread that every one of the Rural Firemen/Women are VOLUNTEERS. Without them this county would be in a crap sandwich. If we lose this man due to this, which one of you are going to step up and take his place? Your actions speak louder than your written words on this gripe session.

Lets see do we want someone that lies to law enforcement to be a person that represnts our county.

What other crimes should we just overlook so someone can stay on the fire dept.The same one that he hit someone and ran and then lied wow looks like maybe someone should talk to all the fireman and let them know that this behavior will not be tolerated.But what do I know?

I know John if he had any idea he had hit someone he would have stoped. Before you go judging people you should stop and think. John is one of the nicest men I know He could never hurt anyone. Another thing John doesn't lie, Don't accuse people of lieing unless you have proof.

Parts came off his truck at the scene of the pedestrian being struck and he tried telling the deputy his truck got damaged somewhere else and got caught up in not telling the truth and was arrested. Look, people panic, they freak out, it happens. Doesnt make him a monster, not saying that, it happens, and this is what happened here unfortunately.

so why we are all talking about the assistant rural fire chief. You cant convince me that he didnt know he hit someone, if you hit a animal you feel the impact. Plus he is in a position of authority I would imagine he had to have some emergency training. He drove off and left him laying in the street bleeding. He not only had a moral obligation to stop but to me he also had a ethical obligation to help. This boys life is changed forever. A steel plate in his hip and 4 blood transfions later to start with. My prayers are with his family.

You are right.The victim is more important than the guy who drove and left him.But it will be interesting to see how the good ole boy system around here deals with one of their one.
