You people have the chance to do some real good here - to learn about important things happening in your community, to give your opinion on news happening right next door.
But no.
This place is a sty, a dumping ground for feces. People from around the world can click here to see what people do for fun in Erwin and Unicoi - shit on their neighbors.
BIG NEWS!!! Kent Harris is not Sheriff anymore. His actions no longer affect the county, therefore they are no concern of yours - that includes what he does in church, what he does in his own backyard, and what he does on Facebook. As for the past, leave it in the past. If there is injustice let the TBI handle it - not a bunch of “armchair judges” with a handful of information and a bellyful of half-assed rumors.
BIG NEWS!!! Mike Hensley is Sheriff. The voting is over and done with. There is no such thing as an elected official that everyone likes; especially not someone who has the ability to arrest you or someone you love. His personal past is his own, not yours to judge. If he has done wrong let the TBI handle it - not a bunch of “armchair judges” with a handful of information and a bellyful of half-assed rumors.
Both these men are good men. But more importantly, they are HUMAN BEINGS. With families. And feelings.
Now I have been a “lurker” here a long time. It has been a good place to see what my hometown considers important enough to talk about. But you people are attacking CHILDREN. And FAMILY MEMBERS. Who have NOTHING TO DO WITH THE STORIES YOU ARE DISCUSSING. Spreading the kind of malicious gossip typical for middle-school locker rooms.
In my career I have interviewed thieves, drug dealers, drug addicts, rapists, murderers, and even a fair number of politicians. But I have NEVER, EVER heard the kind of filth that is now seeping from Topix on a daily basis. Not even in prisons.
So congratulations, a prison yard is now a more civil place to be than Topix.
And the things you type? They don’t just disappear. People read them and talk about them with their neighbors, and before long those “innocent” little clicks of the keys have caused massive pain to people. YOUR people. People you grew up with. Why is it so important to you that they feel horrible? Is that a “win”?
I urge those of you who are guilty of wiping your ass on the screen, to take a deep breath before you hit “send” next time. Carefully read what you wrote. Is it true? Are you sure? Is there a good reason for saying it? Would your mother approve of the way you are saying it?
Now maybe I’m wrong about Unicoi County. Maybe nobody here really gives a damn about each other. Maybe this isn’t the kind of place I should be proud to call home.
But I have hope - hope that I DO know Unicoi County, and the kind of strong, salt-of-the-earth, GOOD-HEARTED people who live here. People who help their neighbors, rather than spit on them. People who will wait for the truth, rather than help spread the most outrageous rumor. People who understand that “jokes” based on a neighbor’s personal tragedy are not funny, they are cruel and heartless.
Can we please have a truce? Can we at least ALL agree that we do NOT need fuel added to the fire burning this county to the ground? CAN WE AGREE TO STOP POSTING ABOUT SHERIFFS, PAST OR PRESENT, OR AT LEAST STOP RESPONDING WHEN WE SEE THEM?
if we can get tina and her 3 friends to agree, but I don't see that happening

They're even taking over the Ruthie Haun page, using it to talk about one sheriff or another.

Shut UP people please! Stop talking about it! Talk about something else, anything else!

It's about 3 people actually,the ex sheriff and a couple of his supporters.It's easy to spot from his facebook posts of all his lies he's spreading.
Still have to say the Mole buster was the best one yet,they're still reeling from that one.
Not many left the will report things to him,maybe one day you guys will grow up and get a life.
Honestly,any of you that would take a site that is known for verbal attacks and people able to post without using their name serious,needs a reality check.

What an oxymoron to this thread!! Just knew it would not last long. Everyone has to get their last licks in - so the beat goes on. There will never be a truce because if there were, then all the people on Topix would get really bored really quickly. Good news is boring. Bad and exotic news sells - and that is the way it will be. This addition will never go away until the people go away (die). So, let's see how we can slam Tina and the ex-sheriff, and the guy that lives out there in nofattie, and that John Day fellow, and hawg, and the sheriff, and the deputy sheriff, and whomever may have any human weakness. After all - we are human - last time I looked!!!

Do you know why the county is being looked at this way,Chicken Lips?..It's because the county is divided between loyalty(Regardless of right or wrong)And the written law that ALL citizens are to abide by!!Right is Right,and Wrong is Wrong there aint but 2 ways to slice it,not 12.

This is disgusting. Unicoi County is full of idiots, no use in trying to tell them anything, after all what do you expect from the descendents of morons who hung an elephant. They don't even care how stupid they look, give 'em something shiny to play with and watch them burn each other with it. Murderers and thieves and dunderheads, all of them. Do like I did and get out of there while you still have some sense.

You really think that there's nothing outside good ol' Unicoi County but gangs and rape? Are you really that stupid? Have you never left your momma's tit? Your county is the rankest, hillbilliest, smallest-minded lump of shit in the whole United States.

You ever wonder why all those wealthy hikers don't stop in your little hick county? Because they warn each other: DON'T STOP IN UNICOI COUNTY. THEY ARE RACIST, THEY ARE IGNORANT AS TODDLERS, THEY ARE DANGEROUS. Stay FAR away from there.

And so they spend money anywhere else but there.

Rather not have their business,the reason they don't stop is because they know they will get busted for their dope.

Good, go ahead and starve to death in your hick little town. Then go ahead and wonder why your taxes need to increase and your streets and buildings are empty and going to ruin. Because NO ONE wants to be here. No one wants to live here, no one wants to work here. No one in their right mind wants to be associated with Unicoi County.

And you don't have the least interest in changing that, do you?

I love it the way it is,sure we could use jobs,but look around,it's a bad economy nationwide.
But I will take these country hicks over the progressive city slickers anyday.There's not many places that people will stop and help if you break down,not many places you can walk the streets at 3 am and not get mugged.
This little town is not perfect and has some buttholes living here,but we've made it all these years and I don't see us going anywhere.
Maybe you can share just how wonderful it is outside of Unicoi co.

Well for one the police department doesn't let a known meth lab go untouched for months. Those things explode all the time, why didn't he bust it right away?well because then he couldn't have done it on camera. And no one here stops and helps anyone if they break down, don't kid yourself. They only help people they know and everybody knows everybody around here. If a stranger broke down you all'd let him freeze to death before you'd lift a finger.
