In response to the artical written about me in the OCN and the Enterprise on 7/28/2010. Mr. Melton and the Sheriffs Dept , I am not interested in being in politics nor am I intrested in running for sheriff therefore I do not want to be used as your stepping stone in your campaign to further you career Mr Melton!. My inditment reads that I obtained or exercised control over property John Deer Z Trak mower valued at $10000.00 or more, but no less than $60000.00. My bond was set at $50000.00 which cost a total of $5000.00 to make the bond to get out of jail. I think that is a JOKE! I thought that a bond was to ensure that you would appear in court on your said court date , not to be used by Mr Melton as punishment before I have even been convicted! I feel like this is such a violation of my constitutional rights. I am a citizen of Overton County, A tax payer, property owener, and have lived here all of my life...with all of that said how does a $50000.00 bond seem fare for a person with no criminal record! I know one thing having such a high bond sure does make me feel punished already! But then again it seems to me that Sheriff Melton has done just about anything that he has wanted to since he has been in office. It is a shame that you can get a warrant brought against you just by one man swearing something to the sheriff office. The sheriffs office then takes it to the DA and then the DA takes it in front of the Grand Jury. Granted I think that the DA and the Grand Jury has a hard job...I just don't think that the sheriffs dept. gives them all of the informtion sometimes. When the S.O. served papers on Mon. 7/26/2010 I was going in to the old home place off Hwy 52 E on Conaster Ln. I met Mr. John Garrett and Mr Melton in one car they presented me with the warrant. In the other car behind them was the City Police Chief along with a Dept from Franklin TN...it then occured to me that the City Police Chief was 5 miles out of the city serving warrants! To my knowledge the Chief of Police is not suppose to be out of the city limits! I have never stolen anyting in my life! I have worked hard for what I have and I have none of the extra's. I still have a mortage, owe on my logging equipment,and have bills just like everyone else. If I were envolved in what they are accusing me off surely I would be able to afford some type of extras or pay myself out of debt. Thank you to all of my family and friend that have and are standing beside me and supporting me through all of this.

I have known David quite well for some time and can say beyond a doubt there isn’t a finer man to be found. He has personally pulled me out of more jams than I can count as he has for most people on this mountain. He has got more friends up here by far than W.B will ever have voters. I believe I know him well enough to swear that he is as innocent as the day is long and hot! I got money that says these charges will be dropped just as soon as elections are over. And after all the crap the sheriff had put in the papers it is all boiling down to a freaking lawn mower that someone else was caught with. Most people who are caught with stolen property usually try and point a finger. WHERE IS THE PROOF !!!!!!!!!
I had a man stop by my house about a year ago trying to buy timber off my land and while talking he mentioned to an extent what a sorry type S.O.B Overton County had for a sheriff. After seeing how David has been railroaded I am now starting to be a believer.
All I can say is that I hope EVERYONE will show his or her discontent with the way the sheriff’s department has been run on the upcoming election and let’s boot this holier-than-thou, power-gone-to-the-head, run amuck sheriff out of office.
I wouldn’t mind at all putting my real name on this forum but it is widely known around here that once W.B has got it in for you, it is just a matter of time before you are in his system for anything he can think of….and that is not exactly where I want to be.

he has been accused that's a big difference from being caught and this country we are innocent until proven guilty by a jury of our peers and not guilty for political gain as WB wants talk about grabbing at straws

Is that all you got out of the posting?
"another thief mad because he got caught what a surprise " He got arrested and issued a $50,000 bond for a used lawn mower someone else had and no proof David had anything to do with it !!!!!!!!! READ AGAIN...a $50,000 bond with NO criminal record.

You are not afraid to put wb's name man up and put your own if you got some beef with him talk face to face with him instead of trying to spread bs on this forum that is what a man would do imo.

I've know David all my life as well. I find it very hard to believe he would steal a mower, or anything else for that matter.

WB supporters think he can do no wrong so you are just wasting your breath the man(WB) could be caught on tape with his pants down and these people would place the blame on the one with the tape.

This is funny. Why would you not try to plea your case in court? Why are you doing it on a public website? We are NOT the jury. Why do you care about what people think of you so much? If you have not done anything wrong then why are you so upset? Most people that have done nothing wrong don't worry like you are.

Why would they take a warrant out for you if you had NOTHING to do with any of this? What did they do just wake up and think they would pick on the meow meow today? NO it is because you have done wrong and got caught and you don't like it. It's pretty sad that we have old men of the county out and about acting the way you do. You need to grow up and sit on your porch and drink some coffee and start acting like the old man you are.

Let me start by saying I am not mad a wb because I was busted or any of my family was busted. I WILL NOT vote for him because he has the lazyest bunch of people working I have ever HAD TO PAY. The shooting on the mountain. The K9 cover up. My own personal dealings with him when my house was broken into. That is enough.

I would like to know how David thinks he is a model citizen when his name has been in the paper for assault on women and possession of drugs. He may never been convicted but any one that has assault charges is not a model citizen.How ever he may not be quilty because he has been busy banning Becky

I'd bet you were on here defending J. Mackie when it was being discussed about his domestic abuse charges. Are you saying that Mackie is guilty even if he doesn't show a conviction? Would you agree that he is not a model citizen and should not have been hired as deputy, since he has been charged(more than once) with domestic abuse? My guess is that you think it's different when the shoe is on the other foot. At least David hasn't killed a man in his on bed!

I would like to say that I had someone else to put this on topix for me and they have misundertood some of what I had wrote down. There was no Franklin Co Detective...it was Dept Brian Franklin with Mr Ethridge. Mr Ethridge didn't serve any papers all he was doing was riding in the county where I didn't feel he should of been. Next time just try and understand that it could be one of you.
