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.
If they had known it was going on in October,they would have got them then.They were checked twice and they came up with nothing and the dumbasses still were stupid enough to sell and undercover agent some pills,learn to comprehend what you read,the meth lab was discovered when they served the warrants for the indictment.

Wont happen until there is closure, i.e. he is found innocent or guilty of any and all charges. For some reason the DA is dragging his feet on putting these cases on the docket. I've seen murder cases brought to trial quicker than the crap Harris is accused of.
Just a note on these trials...Harris ask that charges be separated and tried apart from each other.... No judge here would take the cases so Nashville brought in Blackwood... He sets trial dates not defense, Harris or DA....nobody dragging feet....if Harris REALLY cares about this county and all taxpayers money...why doesn't he just agree to have all these charges heard together and end this....place blame where it should be placed...

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?
AJ ask randy hawg whom the posters are that are taking over every topic to post about kent. He knows who they are if he will tell you on facebook which I doubt. One of them says he works with hogs brother.

What is wrong with you asking him?He will either tell you if he knows,or keep it to himself or he may not know.
But it doesn't matter who is who on here,unless you are plotting some kind of cowardly revenge on someone.

I am the one that works with Darren,let's make a deal.You reveal who you are,I will reveal who I am.
If you go back to threads from almost 2 years you will see a lot of comments of you guys trying to guess who people are on here.So really,why do you want to know?
Do you think that is somehow going to strike fear in people and then they will hush?Or are you going to send out your little thugs to poison their pets,shoot their horses or vandalize their property?
Big newsflash,without your badge,you are nothing.People are aware from things that have happened in the past just how cowardly you people are,you are going to sneak around someone's property one night and get surprised.
My suggestion to you is,quit trying to find out who is against you and deal with your legal problems,it isn't against the law to speak out against your and your family's lies.The more you pry,the more people come out of the woodwork.And BTW,nobody is buying into your idea of wanting peace,they know what a piece of crap you are and that it's all an act.

I'm not disagreeing,but I think it also has a lot to do with trying to sway public opinion and garner up moral support.It's like a game.
I joined Facebook a few weeks ago to be able to read the watchhawg,I was expecting to find something like Topix but all I found was a few posts disputing things Kent Harris posted and now they have called a truce and there is nothing on there.
I messaged Hawg on FB and he said he did not want to know my alias,and he only knew of two people on here and no way would he ever disclose their identity because what they posted was mild stuff anyway.He also said they had agreed to stop all the negative stuff and even they break the agreement,he was still keeping his end of it.
Myself,I don't think Kent is sincere about caring one thing about the people of this county,his only concern is to jump through the hoops to skate by on all the charges,after that,he'll be back to the same old Kent,bet he won't even darken the door at Church.

Seems like you are trying awfully hard to get the last word,lol.
Make no mistake about me,I have grown to love this little town and the people that live here,the corruption has robbed them of their tax dollars and now it's taking their spirit through division.
Only 2 things can happen,people bow down and let the corruption continue,or people speak up and take a stand and hold those accoutable for their actions.
It's not a matter of who gets the last word,it's a matter of people not forgetting what has transpired the last few years.
The internet is the only place that people's true feelings are put to print,Sure Kent wants peace now,after he has failed at turning the town on Mike and Frank with his lies and biased opinions.
Sorry if that bothers you,but last I checked our freedom to post on here hasn't been taken away.
