Big difference in a 20k dollar Crown Vic with a 5 dollar electric job with a 96 model light bar compared to a 50k dollar F-250 with special features.

for you police officer or former police officers why is it that there is 10 meth bust for every coke(crack) bust in craighead county. I know there is a lot of meth in craighead county but there is more coke moving thru joneboro than most of the big cities in the U.S. I think I know the answer ( the coke is run buy the big money in this town) I feel a drug is a drug and they all should be got off the street. I take my hat off for the good cops out there doing their job and trying to get the drugs off the street but I dont have any respect for the officers who bust the druggies then take the money and put it in their pocket and then do the drugs themself
amen, couldn't have said it any better!!

I just looked into that and your facts are wrong. There are just as many coke bust as there are meth labs if not more. Do your homework before you go running off at the mouth about something you have no idea about. Meth labs make better stories than a coke bust. Also the if the media showed every coke bust they would get sued for only showing stories about black people getting arrested. Please, I'm all about the deputies need to do more but dont speak unless you know what you are talking about.

Well let's think about this for a second. First off county officers work the county right? With that said do you realize that most of the roads in the county are......gravel! So for all you citizens that live on gravel roads, when you have an emergency then our deputies will treat their cars like a car and go 10 miles an hour down the road! Yea I'm sure the people who live in the county will love that! And as far as the maintenance they do have their cars in for service. If they don't they have to listen to Miller bitching about it!

That's exactly right! and thats why they have lost so many of the good deputies. Dont get me wrong they still have some left, but just think about the ones who have quit in the last 5 years... And the only reason some are still around is because they are trying to kiss Jack's crooked ass...Can we say Amanda Tussin...?

This hypocritical organization has done nothing to get anyone off drugs. It's a political organization to support the continuation of the failed drug war. You know, the drug war that has put millions of people in prison for crimes against themselves(aka possession). The most blatant act of treason POSSIBLE under the US Constitution is declaring war against The People. Do NOT support this group of hateful people. Skip Mooney, Jr doesn't even care to make the effort to get his own son off drugs. And uses the music of Further Down on this group's site. Further Down only plays songs about getting drunk, doing drugs and partying. Protect your loved ones from these wolves.

You evidently do not know anything about what Out of the Dark stands for with these comments. We do support law enforcement getting drug dealers out of our community; however, we do not support the so called “War on Drugs” which has been a complete failure in properly addressing the addiction problems we have in our community. Failed policies don’t solve problems and our country has 38 years of history proving this. Is trying to make changes in policies by confronting the policymakers political? What are you doing to help the family out that has a loved one that needs medical detox when there is none here locally or the person that has finally straightened out their life after rehab only to come back to a community that provides little support to start over with a productive life for those without family support? Your comments about my relationship with my son are just pure hatefulness and untrue. You clearly don’t know anything about what you are talking about and quite frankly it is not something I intend to discuss on a forum like this with people like you that sign in anomalously and spew hatred to others.
The bottom line, it is none of you business. As far as Further Down is concerned I supported these guys and proud of it. The song “Hello” that is on the website is has nothing to do with getting drunk, doing drugs and partying unless you think love is a drug. I am glad that you “Do NOT support this group of hateful people.” Unlike you we are trying to solve problems, not create them.

I’m all for getting the harder drugs off the streets like meth, coke, crack. but come on pot doesn’t hurt anyone. alcohol has a worse effect on people then pot. yes i smoke pot. i work my ass off every day 99.9% harder then anyone in this town except for the people that work with me.
you want to help out your country, city or state get rid of the laws prohibiting the use of pot. so much money is being wasted away in this country battling marijuana. that money could be used to fight the harder drugs that are actually hurting people. stop fighting a loosing battle against marijuana and a winning battle against the harder drugs.
I don’t hurt anyone. I don’t support terrorism. I support my community. And I’m very well known in the Jonesboro area.
Even if we did legalize Pot...they would tax it death and no one would be able to afford it!

Mr. Mooney,

How many people have you defended in the court of law whom were charged with a drug related crime? How many officers have you verbally abused on the witness stand whom were the arresting officer in the war on drugs? Do you know who owns Mombays? How much money have you made by defending people whom were charged with drug related crimes? Do you intend on running for any office's in the near future and are you using this organization as a political platform?

After 26 years I could not tell you how many people I have defended in the court of law whom were charged with a drug related crime but I can tell you most of them have been someone’s kid for getting in trouble with pot. Anyway, I do believe in the Bill of Rights and a person's right to be represented whether guilty or not.

To my knowledge I have never verbally abused an officer on the witness stand. If an officer failed to do their job or violated someone’s constitutional rights then I am sure they may have felt that way after getting up under oath and trying to defend their actions.

Sure. Doesn’t everybody know who owns Mombays but that does not have anything to do with me. I have read the rumors on here that I have something to do with this place which is totally false. Never have.

See the answer above.

I have no intentions of running for office, however, it is clear that we need people in office that have a better understanding about the impact that addiction has on families and our community with new and better ideas as to how to address them.

So what are you doing to try to make a positive impact in our community?

Looks like I just did my part. Mr Mooney how can you defend someone for drugs and then turn around and have this brain child. O.k. we both know that pot is much safer than alcohol and if we both had it our way it would be legal. But crack dealers, meth pushers, comeon you have defended them and even when you knew they were caught. Everyone does deserve a fair trial but for why stand for something you feel is so wrong. "Your Honor, My client is innocent." If you have ever defended one, just one, then you dont stand up for what you think is right. Whats to gain out of this for you? You must have some intentions. One life saved is well worth it, I agree and hope it saves many. Its just a hard pill to swallow that you are heading this thing up and dont have any political intentions. Are any other attorneys helping to fund this? Since starting this have you defended anyone for drug related crimes?

Sorry, I know these questions are quite harsh. But when an attorney attempts to change lifes for the better one has to wonder and these are questions I along with so many others have.

First of all you asked about drug related crimes. I never said I represented drug dealers that doesn't mean I wouldn't if I thought they where innocent. Why do you assume that what I am doing has anything to do with being an attorney? You sure don't think much of attorneys. I for one know a lot of attorneys that are great people that have helped a lot of people for free.

You have to understand that it seems you have another motive for this. How many drug cases have you defended? Did you believe each and every one of them were innocent? I find that very hard to believe/
