VICIOUS ASSAULT on an innoncent disabled man who was doing his job. McFarland has had a lot of trouble lately. Public record of sexual harrassment charges filed. Is this the kind of authority figures that Roane County needs, especially after the Judge Austin thing? What is wrong with our leaders? Are these not the kind of people that our children should look to for respect as role models within our towns? What kind of examples are they setting, even for their own children? Roane County really needs a wake up call.

You need to go VOTE. Roane County has a history of low turnout at election time. YOUR VOTE IS YOUR VOICE. Speak up or sit down, shut up, and take what you get. To quote Plato "Your silence implies consent."

I agree with you. That was the point. What else has to happen for people to see the importance of their voice in all affairs concerning them. If we can't trust these people who are elected to represent us then we, the people, need to take back our country, state,county, and towns. If the voices don't speak for us, then we need to speak up and speak out, and make a change for a difference.

THIS HAS BEEN THE CASE FOR MANY YEARS,AND WE THE RESIDENTS AND VOTERS OF THIS COUNTY NEEDS TO PUT A STOP TO THIS CRAP.OUR LOCAL NEWS IS ALLWAYS THE SAME,A DISHONEST COP OR ATTOURNEY OR JUDGE OR DRUG DEALER. I GUESS ONE IS JUST AS SORRY AS THE OTHER.

It would seem that if it was anyone else other than a county attorney the dude would have already been arrested. There is a big problem, especially in small countys (inbred factors can reach as high as 84% according to the Lambo Institute of Human Interaction) and my suggestion to people is to realize that a position or a uniform doesn't make any difference. Flesh id flesh my friends and had Adolf Hitler sttod before the masses ranting and raving in a pair of overalls he would have gotten the shit beat out of him. But place a uniform on him and he became an instant dictator. I think Roane County needs a few more constables like Mark patton. Maybe that is why the "few" hate this man yet a large silent majority may enjoy seeing him use his power against those with power. Hey, it sure gives us all a break.

I agree that he blens in well with all the other low life politicians in Roane County Tn. Including Jack Stockton, Russel Johnson, Dennis Ferguson, Dennis Humphrey and the list goes on and on.

Kingston Citizen with a Watburg address! To answer your comment. Sounds to me like you may be one of the good ole BOYS of the Roane County establishment. The Roane County attorney and his FRIEND and former team mate Judge Wicks should have been included in the list. There is no fair and legal representation in Roane County at any level. PERIOD!!!!!

Can someone please tell the story of what happened with McFarland and the assault on a disabled man? I had not heard it before and cannot find it by clicking the link to the RC News, could be removed.

Also, who charged him with sexual assault? When?

It could be political mudslinging in an election year also. In fact, I would bet on it because most of your political vermin would be afraid of physically confronting anyone. That's not the Roane County way. A knife in the back, however...

I just read where McFarland announced he was going to run for a Judges Post this year. He quoted that what he is most proud of is his efforts to clean up corruption at the court house. What a joke because he needs to clean up his own act. Just go back and read what all he has been involved. Of course he will declare he has not been convicted of anything! Of course not he is part of the "good ole boys" in Roane County. Talk to some that he has supposedly represented. Check the newspaper archives as to some of his antics. You can bet I will support Kim Nelson in any way that I can. Roane County citizens need to wake up! I keep reading how Roane County needs to be cleaned up. Well ,the time to start is now and let your votes be counted and support the canidates that will represent the people and this County and District in a honest and respectable manner.

I can say from experience that another lawyer with the name of John produced a fraudulent title search in a real estate swindle and mortgage fraud that cost me a significant amount of trouble and money.

Actually, you did not "twist my shorts" at all. Years ago in 2007, Mr. McFarland was involved in a personal situation none of us are privy to. What I see loud and clear is that NO charges were ever filed and he was cleared of ANY wrong doing. To that, may I add his qualifications over the other candidates in the race? Tom McFarland is a man of great character. He's proven to be honest, loyal and dedicated. He will be an excellent Circuit Court Judge. He has been elected to 4, four-year terms by the people of Roane County and has served as County Attorney for the past 16 years. He has a proven record, and has 24 years trial experience in this court. He has been admitted to practice in the Tennessee Supreme Court since 1990, and in Federal Court since 1997. Tom has represented many clients in this court ranging from individuals, to businesses large and small, and to governmental entities. None of his contenders have these qualifications and can even come close. Mr. McFarland also served as the President of the Tennessee County Attorney Association 2011-2012. Unlike the other candidates, Tom McFarland has RESIDED in Kingston, SERVED the people of Roane County, and SUPPORTED his community. He will be a great asset to the Circuit Court.
