Most of Tupelo police are fuckin cowards.! They stay in low income neighborhoods harrasing and setting up roadblocks.! The white communities need patroling too..! Leave or kids alone (young black men and women).. These police are not angels.! I tell every young person, if you are ever stopped by police then try to record every word with your cell phone if you can.. We need more honest black men on the force who knw what it means to be a minority in the most rasicst place in the world.. We need to expose the cowards if not we will keep finding our kids dead by the hands of these blue suited devils.. Some are good honest ppl.. But there are very few. Fck Tupelo Police Chief, Deputy and all... Thanx

Cops go whee the crime is. If you pull the tricks you pull in the neighborhoods where people do not care about crime in neighborhood that does care you get arrested as people do call for help as they-hold you with their force. For example who in the black neighborhood calls the police when you toss a piece of trash on the ground? Who picks it up? Crime is where people are apathetic.

If Hughes can assault a woman in the Lee/Tupelo jail with callous indifference

http://djournal.com/view/full_story/21651072/...

can we not assume that such behavior is somewhat common at the jail. How many Tupelo police officers and Lee County officers were there to witness Hughes' assault yet it has taken all these months to bring him to cop a plea. How many others have been assaulted at the jail but keep quiet? And the mayor and sheriff are proud intimidation keeps the victims silent.

I've been beaten by a Tupelo police officer. They altered the reports and made a crime when there was none after entering my home without warrent. It's easy to say well you must have deserved it, if your the average American its hard to accept this happens. Your black, blah blah, your white blah blah. Well there was no 911 call like they said, they put me in the hospital, I was beaten while sleeping in my bed. I still have Tupelo police officer witnesses , but there is so much politics, even with 100 percent truth no one cares and I mean no one. Again I've contacted the FBI the department of justice ect. And this has not just effected me cause, I am a man, it is a dog eat dog world, it has effected my custody of my child. Now and I probobly only shouldn't say things like this online, but now I cary a handgun. Not for the reason of fear of the people but I will never be beaten again by a officer. So the truth is a felon with a gun......Why?

Any officer of the law who witnesses an assault on anyone and does nothing to stop said assault is as guilty as the officer who is accused of committing the assault. Why was no one else charged in the Hughes case? Think......

Furthermore, if you are reading this and were truly beaten by any law enforcement officer, right now is the time to come forward. Contact Hughes' attorneys and I am sure they can tell you who you need to file charges with. However, isn't it quite odd that this woman who was supposedly "beaten" has never appeared? Almost five years before charges were filed? Something smells fishy about this whole thing. What do you think?

I have heard numerous stories of abuse at the hands of Tupelo and Lee County law enforcement. There is likely some fact to all the stories and a great deal of fact in a few. But when you consider that stories of abuse have been told to me, some first hand, when I live in a quiet neighborhood and tend to mind my own business it becomes quite likely that there truly are problems at the jail in particular and with local law enforcement officers in general.

Eveyone needs to realize that the Daily urinal makes no effort to find and report the truth. The Daily Urinal papers over the truth.

The tupelo police scare me a little. I have reasons that I would prefer not to go into detail about but if a cop happens to pull me over when I am driving I try my hardest to stop somewhere that has plenty of people around.

Why would you give a policeman reason to pull you over? The law states that he has to suspect you of doing something against the law. That means you can have him fired if he has no suspicious reason.

I see you aren't familiar with how the real world works. They don't need a reason, they can just make one up. Then it is my word vs a police officer. I wonder who a judge would side with on that one.

Dan we worked with you at 911. You had sexual comments to share so you were let go. Tanya has been nothing but good to me. Lay off of her or we'll come find you and your satellite truck.

God, what do we have here a combination of the FBI and CIA? "We'll come and find you and your satellite truck"?

Everybody in a police department understands that the average police dispatcher is the lowest enity in any police department.
They consist of low IQ females to police wanabes to that person just above the local photo nut that you see at the scene of crime and fires.

It's been brought to my attention that a certain person has been recertifiied to be an officer after writing false police reports. After 5 years he has decided to become an officer again. And his Facebook posts, would lead one to believe he has become A Christian, I'm all about forgiveness when it's true, but what if he's never addressed the damage he's done, and the suffering he's put into place that has not been straightend out just a few years ago.

Face book is nothing but a crime history. The FBI uses it to find if you are a criminal. It is evidence.
