Why dont you get your facts straight, the bust was done by the drug task force, not the sheriff's dept, one of the persons arrested is still in the jail and there were no children involved. The problem is not the sheriff's dept its the ignorance of the community who think they know everything when in reality they know nothing.

Why is it the Sheriffs office gets the blame for the druggies in this area getting off easy? Do you not understand the system?? The Sheriffs office arrests these people and the PROSECUTORS OFFICE is the one who charges them or lets them go.Get your facts right before you start running off at the mouth.

Well seeing worried and confused obviously work for the Sheriffs dept. Sorry to have offended you. I have lived in this county all my life and yes I know how the system works. I have seen it fail over and over again. But I have also seen the Sheriffs dept fail over and over again. I know that it is very frustrating to get these bad guy and the prosecutor letting them go. But is that any reason to stop doing your jobs?! I could tell of at least 10 big drug suppliers that have been around for years and no one seems to care. That is what people are so upset about. So maybe you all need to get your facts straight and find out why there are very few that have trust in the law officers in the county.

I do not work for the Sheriff's dept., but i do have an understanding of the system here in Iron county. Seeing as you have all this drug dealer information why dont you call the Sheriff's dept. and tell them, by not doing so you are failing your community. I dont recall seeing any facts in your posts, as i said before you do not have the facts. If you dont have trust in the Sheriff's dept. why not state the reasons. Everything you have posted so far is just your opinion not factual.
Whatever

if you dont work for the sheriff dept. then you must be married to one of the crooked S.O.B.'s I am sorry but i agree with duh i am tired of these crooked deputies like the one who's wife gets caught stealing money and he hides her (or wont tell where she is) but still has a job. not saying much for the sheriff or his dept and yes the prosecutor has a lot to do with them getting cut loose so yes he is just as crooked as the rest, but you people keep voting him back in (way to go) if the deptuties had any investigative skills then they could figure out who the dealers are and not have to rely on the public. i mean it is only obvious.

Again i am not married or related to any of the Sheriff's dept., I read the newspaper and if you had you would have known the details of the story you were posting. I think these deputy's do an honorable job, what do you do for a living, do you contribute to society, or is your contribution bitching about those that do. Sounds to me that those of you that are complaining have probably been on the wrong side of the law yourselves. Im sure people continue to vote them in because they understand how the system works.......probable cause, you can't kick in someones door just because you think they are committing a crime, you have to have proof. This county functions with only 7 deputy's, do you expect them to work everywhere 24 hrs a day.
YOUR LOCAL LAWENFORCEMENT IS ONLY AS GOOD AS THE COMMUNITY THEY HAVE TO DEAL WITH, why not try getting off your ass and turning someone in if it means so much to you that the dealers are off the street
duh

First off myself or whatever are not the ones that started this post. Second it is a free country and we are all entitled to our opinions. Third I have NEVER been on the wrong side of the law. The system has just failed me. Fourth the drug dealers that I am speaking of have been brought to the attention of the deputies. So you need to get all your facts straight. You obviously have never had to need help from them. And wow you know how many deputies we have?? HMMM! If you are complaining that we only have 7 deputies then maybe you need to get off you butt and get some more hired. Yea they do a great job in the central part of the county. But if you live out west or in the southern end you never see them unless they are serving papers. Im not going to keep fighting with you about this topic like a 5 yr old. I have said my piece.

I am not related to any of the law enforcement in Iron County,nor have I ever been on the wrong side of the bars but you cant brand all of the deputies by your experiences with certain ones.I have had to call them for situations before and YES I got scre*ed over by certain ones but not every situation is the same.And I would really have a hard time running after drug dealers time after time when the prosecutor's office lets them go with a slap on their wrist.Its the same anywhere you go.Some are good and some are not.

The county only has 7 deputies!? I thought that they had ALOT more because everytime I see one, its not one that I have seen before. How thin do they have to be spread out for there to be 24 hour coverage? Do they have 24 hour coverage? This county is HUGE! If there are only 7 and I see a different one everytime I see one, I assuming that they are all leaving. Why? Is it due to the crookedness that they want to escape from? Is it due to the sheriff? Why will he not step in and do something!! Thats what he is payed for! Well, reading this forum has made me want to buy a gun to protect myself. Because I know the county wont,...unless there's one on.....thats not crooked....ssssoooo? ya, maybe just to protect myself.

I cant believe that the government doesnt step in to do something. Surely they are aware of it. What will it take for them to step in? Maybe they should be to blame for letting the Sheriff's Dept. get to that point.

Thats alright, Iron Co isn't concerned with a, not sure how to say this one exactly, ummm a petifile running around either, or a grown man touching little girls, why not just let that one go. What exactly are they concerned with then. Who is going to protect our kids and put the bad ppl away if we can't count on them.

Ok Kelli. You just really need to drop it because you know nothing that is going on. Just what you here in the ol mini mart. There is more being done than you know about. It just takes time. And the County has nothing to do with it. If you people dont like the way our government runs things, such as DFS, then get off your lazy butts and do something about it instead of posting stuff on topix. Just something to think about... you are HURTING "your" case instead of helping it. I dont know why you didnt just put your name on here

Who the hell do you think you are to just assume that it is me. I am sorry that some people that write things have the same town name as me, that is something i can't control and if you really look, it is something that happens quite often and if you have also noticed, when i get on here, I ALWAYS WRITE MY NAME. I am pretty sure i know who this is, so why don't you put your name. For one, i DID NOT write this and even if I would have, what gives you the right to tell me that I have no idea what is going on, it is you that has no idea what is going on. Don't you think that i have wanted to say something about this for awhile, but this is something that has no place on this site or anywhere else cause it is a big issue and a very personal one for all involved. I might have alot of emotions tied into this, but come on, i am not stupid, no matter what you think. Once again, I DID NOT WRITE THIS and don't know who did.
For another thing, what is going on is not 'MY' case, get it right if your going to speak. As far as what you would say "OUR LAZY BUTTS" have done is more than you think and know, its alot more than just sitting around on them doing nothing.
All this is not a subject to be talked about on here, you want to say something to me or falsely accuse me of writing something i didn't, you know where i am at so come straight to me.
And for the record, i don't sit around on my 'Lazy Butt' doing nothing, i have a job, i work, i take care of my own, myself.
I do believe you owe me an apoligy, for falsely accusing me and posting my name all over something that is not my doing, that was just wrong and way out of line!!!

I dont blame the Sheriffs Office one bit on these things...the legal system is crappy to say the least. I know a few of the deputies and from what I hear from them, they bust their butts to protect and serve the county every night with the few amount of them their are. I know stories of hearing them charge the crap out of people, but when it comes to court and all the legal stuff, its out of their hands. They can only do so much then its up to the courts to finish it off. I hate seeing someone write a five dollar bad check and get prison time, and see someone get busted for drugs and get probation...thats not the officers fault, its the courts... the judicial system needs a better approach. I know I do my part in being a good citizen and if I hear of drug activity, I report it...I dont want my kids to get it offered to them, or do I want to see anyone else offered it to them. The people need to think about making this area a better community and report it. I know they always thank me when I call...If we all do that, we could ALL make a difference...but with todays economy, people are doing dumb things to make ends meet. And its not like they can just go kick everyone they get a call on doors open...it takes time and evidence...when the get the right amount to make a good case they go for it. Some are just tougher than others...

In whipitouts defense, I must agree that once law enforcement does their part, its the judicial system that ends up dropping the ball. Our prisons are over-crowded as it is and it seems that a slap on the hand with drug court or probation is a way of life these days. And peter rabbit, you do not have to be related to law enforcement or work for them to have this knowledge. You should try sitting in on court day a few times and see for yourself.
