“We are watching. We will not tolerate the sale, manufacture and/or use of any drugs.”

But feel free to get the fine products of Anheuser-Busch or Jack Daniels and get F'ed up. And buy some blue pills for ED and some Prozac for depression.

“We have six full-time canines in the department and we try to be visible on our school campuses,”

Seems like a lot for a small population. No wonder taxes are high.

"Hodge said he realizes times are hard and people see illegal drugs as easy money. However, he contends that there are jobs out there for people who want to work."

“It may not be the job they want, but there are jobs,” he said.“Doing illegal things for money is just a cop out.

10% unemployment and 83 just canned from Masonite so maybe not any jobs.

Hodge needs to address the illegals and stop running a police state on the citizenry. That would help unemployment and curb drug dealing. That or get three more drug dogs and his helicopter.

Hey hodge, get deputies on the interstate. I hear there's some out of state libertarians with an open beer riding through.

Hodge created a job for one sex offender so there is hope for criminals.

Same problem, different city. Laurel's neighbor has the same one- track mind, focusing on the drugs instead of the other crimes like murder & illegals. Is it me or the reason they don't touch the illegals is because they may have some working for them? Seriously, Hodge has a sex offender working in his department? How twisted is that? So you can get away with murder or touching kids but if you sell drugs you are the worse person in the world! Have they considered that the drug problem is so bad because there are no jobs? Smh!

Haha2, major problem with illegals is the locals never vote against those that ignore it and don't demand any action. Oh they complain but few seem to care enough to demand that some local politician do something. Same with slumlords that have ruined Laurel. You can park ten cars the MUD/dirt lawn of your slumlord rented property with twenty people living there. It don't matter. ZERO enforcement in Laurel. Sometimes they'll write a meaningless ticket. Seen them write the same abandoned car seven times. It stayed there for five years. People laugh when I tell them this use to be a beautiful town. They weren't here, too young or bad memory.

As far as drugs being their only concern, this is true.... many police have drank the Kool_aide on this now. Originally it started with them pretending to save the world one bust at a time. So many in the general public buy into this and love the police for their endless, never winning, ignoring everything else war on drugs. It's a great PR tool.

Police have become paramilitary. If it's not drugs or looking drugs they often don't know what they are doing.

Slumtown, that is so true. I'm not too old or too young but I remember when Laurel was a beautiful town, I used to enjoy going there. Now, I'm horrified by what I see! As far as the illegals, you make a valid point as long as there's no real action or someone making it an agenda, it's going to stay that way. I understand their stand on drugs to a degree but drugs, just like the illegals, are going to be there no matter how hard they try. As soon as you take down one or more dealers another will their place. Both cities need to realize that there's other crimes that need attention but I guess it's easier & more lucrative to focus on drugs!

Waynesboro is a funny place. They sell beer and soda pop wines in the City limits but stop the sale of any good wine. Not even a bottle of Morgan David wine for a visiting Jew.

Yet the police report is full of people being arrested for drinking and driving. This week the Wayne Country News reports an arrest of a 69 year old man selling liquor without a license which the City of Waynesboro refuses to issue. Yet Waynesboro had liquor stores at one time.

So the people just pack up and drive to Laurel, MS and visit a place like George's which has a front page big advertisement on front of this week's Impact newspaper for discount booze with prices listed! Laurel thanks you Waynesboro customers and we hope you never have legal liquor.

Then Waynesboro's city government will fuss about low sales tax revenue when they could be collecting money for liquor store licenses and local sales tax.

I don't see this policy does anything except placate the Holy Roller Christians. If they think prohibition is protecting the youth they must think that you can't get drunk from drinking beer.

Anonymous, Jones County is really funny too. You see people getting arrested in the paper for ONLY possession of beer in a dry county in the paper. I don't get that. Laws are laws but you pay your taxes and cannot legally consume a 4% drink after bush hogging your land all day. Well then let's get in our cars and go to Laurel, drink there and drive home.

Police use to drink the confiscate beer. Many in the dry county, Don't know if that's still the case. I drank some with them. Big crime for others. Knew many cops that always had a cooler of free beer and never had one with less than four different brands.

Drive down any road in Jones county and you are likely to see a case of empties a mile. This no beer in a dry county thing isn't working so well. Unlike illegals JSCO tries to enforce this one. Messing with citizen going home to drink a beer is more fun that messing with people here illegally.
