EXPERIENCE IS THE MAIN Qualification
If someone came to your office, handed you a card with their name on it and asked for a job would that be good enough to get hired?
We need to apply that same principle at the polls. Showing up at someone’s door, asking for a vote or to put a sign in their yard should not get the candidate the vote, or the office. As voters we need to have a higher expectations of those who lead us.
This begins by breaking the cycle
of voting for someone because he is your neighbor or has the biggest sign.

You are right and Perkins has had 4 years to prove himself and he has failed the test. I had planned to vote for Perkins until I heard about the way he handled the case on Ron Greene, that was wrong, you know it, I know it and Perkins knows it. If he had just done something about it instead of covering it up or ignoring it then he still would have my vote and probably a lot of other peoples.
Thats terrible

Gary Perkins will not be sheriff coming Thursday. He and his thugs need to leave this county.

I have voted since I have been old enough to. That been a long time. I research candidates. I talk to cnadidates. I look at their past history in office, if they already hold a office. I voted for Gary 4 years ago because of his record as a detective. He was one of the ones that worked by brother-in-laws murder. But It look like he cannot control the staff that he is responsible for. So this year will be different.

I also voted for Perkins 4 years ago not this time. He just has not been a reliable sheriff too many stories that are negative toward him and he can't keep good officers working for him.Alot of people feel this way. Cindy you need to contact Lafollette Press and wate tv and wbir tv and wvlt tv by Monday and see if they would tell your story before election day on Thursday. People need to know what happened before they vote. We don't need a sheriff that would let this happen to anyone.

I will be voting for Perkins because I don't believe all this stuff that is being said and I doubt that a lot of other people in Campbell Co. do either. Funny how it just happened to come up now at election time when it supposedly happened in March! If it was true, you would be doing more about it than getting on topix badmouthing everyone.

I have not badmouth anyone. All I have done is stated facts. I have the documentation to prove everything I have said. What do you have? I'm glad you are voting for Gary. Not once did I say Gary was a bad person. Personally I like him. I just don't think he has control on his office. There has been more lawsuit on CCSD since he has been sheriff. He cannot be with them all the time. But why keep people on the payroll if they are not able to do the job or is harming your department?

If I bad mouth Gary then I apology but I don't believe I did. Gary is a good man, friend and neighbor. He is one of our community and we care about him but letting his men get away with something like this is not acceptable anywhere. Gary knows this was wrong and should have done something about it. No, not because this happened in our community I would feel the same way no matter where it would have happened. I know Gary would never do something like this himself so he shouldn't allow his men to do it either. It's not too late, he could still do something and maybe change a lot of people's opinion about him.

VERY WELL SAID. WHETHER PERKINS WAS THERE OR NOT IS NOT A FACTOR. HE AS SHERIFF IS RESPONSIBLE ALSO. He needs to know what his deputies and detectives are doing and what they are capable of doing.

All I am trying to do is get the truth out. I hate liars. I tell the truth about myself. I have no reason to lie. As my dear mother-in-law use to say to me "the truth will stand when the world is on fire" The Justice symbol quotes "truth and justice" That is all I want truth and justice.

Just like a parent of a teenager whether you know what they are doing or not. You as a parent are responsible. If they break out a window the parent is responsible and etc. Perkins is SHERIFF for now and that makes him his employees' BOSS and THAT MAKES HIM RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS ALSO. SEEMS TO ME YOU DON'T KNOW THE LAWS. IDOIT !!!!!!!!!

The buck stop at the one in charge. When I was charge nurse at my last job. I was the one responsible for the care and actions of my staff. If they messed up, it was me that was help accountable. Maybe you have never worked or been in charge. Maybe you don't have children. But people with children and in charge of others the buck stops with them. No he can't be with them all the time. But disciplinary actions can happen at any time. I advice to you is to think before you speak. And speak only on topics you know about.

And another fact I have not dogged Gary. I just said he should have had more control over his office. He is the main man over there isn't he.

I don't believe anyone is blaming Gary for what happened but we're are blaming him for not doing anything about it. Everyone is right about when you are in charge of a Dept. or a group of people, you are responsible for their actions, just as parents are responsible for their children, it's our reaction to the problem that makes the difference. He could have fired 2 of them or at least put them on leave until he had this investigated, anything would have been better than doing nothing. What was he thinking, that this would just go away or no one would ever know or care? This is Jellico where everyone knows everyone. We make not always get along but when one of us needs help you'll find us coming to the rescue. I hope Gary does something because everyone trusted him so much and was so proud that we would have someone on this side of the mountain we could depend on. I'm sorry Gary, but you have disappointed alot of people, as I said before, it's not too late.

If the district attorney general had gotten complains of wrong doings at The Campbell County Sheriff's Department a much better way to handle the current problems he had received complains about would for district attorney Paul Phillips to call Sheriff Gary Perkins to his office and they discuss what problems Paul Phillips had received regarding Campbell County Sheriff's Department, By no means three week before a Sheriff's election should the distict attorneyPaul Phillips call for a TBI Invesgation and then whatever the problems were then give Sheriff Gary Perkins a chance to correct the wrong doings that district attorney Paul Phillips had a problem with,any way the voters of Campbell County assumes Gary Perkins may be at fault.This information has yet to be proofed of any wrong doings done by The Sheriff and The TBI has yet to make public The TBI findings of their current ongoing investagation.

When a complaint is filed, a team gets together DA and staff , discuss situation if enough evidence is found and merritted a investigation will be made. Why didn't Paul Phillips let Gary Perkins know about an investigation that had been in the works for a couple of weeks? That in itself in interesting.

What you are talking a bout is things that has happened at CCSD office. Not what happened at my house when law enforcement beat up my husband. Many people have been harrassed by various officers. Many are afraid to speak out. It just takes one person to speak out. It just take one person to promote change. But people need to open their eyes and really see what is happening. I am not a sheep. And I will not lie down. I will see change happen.
