I still think that Brad Smith would be the best. He would bring a different kind of leadership to the department. He is one that has been there and done that many times over. He would bring a different level of experience and tranning to Mayfield PD. Also, he is not an outsider, such as the Chief before last, that already knows what is going on in this area and has the experience to try and change it.

Bubba Hendley resigned i would have liked for him to had the job.He said he didnt think he would ever get the chance even though Murphy is going to step down.The good ole boy thing must be at work in the department because everyone knows bubba is qualified.

Smith is probably nice, but I don't want some outsider telling the people of Mayfield what to do. I want someone I know to help me. We don't need no Gray God. My God is just fine for me. We tried this before with that guy from Chicago and that Griesz guy. That was a complete failure. We need someone that knows us the citizens and what we want and not what some outsider wants.

I don't agree at all he is an outsider, and he won't be successful. We've done that before and our elected stepped in a pile.

Hey Ken, I will glad to explain the term "gray god". Its a term that has been around for many many years and it is statewide. Its use comes mainly from folks affiliated with local police departments and Sheriffs depts. Its a derogatory comment that refers to the State Police in terms that they (KSP) think they are better than other departments.. kinda along those lines. I have heard it thousands of times from hundreds of people. Sometimes in jest but mostly in spite like what we are seeing on this forum. The State Police has their own seperate training academy in Franfort. Most other departments go to Richmond for their training. The first time I heard the term was in Richmond when I was on the KSP "SWAT" team. It came out of the mouth of a Richmond academy training instructor who obviously didnt like KSP for whatever reason. He, in fact, tried to get on with KSP but didnt get hired. I suppose that fueled his animosity. But thats how it is a statewide term. Because its origin is in the place that trains local agencies across the state. I dont particularly like the term but Ive been called worse so I dont sweat it. I can also say that I have never heard any KSP Trooper refer to himself in that term. Hope that clears it up for ya.. sorry to be long winded.

Of course no trooper is going to refer to himself with that term, but I have heard with my own ears troopers putting down both mayfield and graves co departments on more that one occassion. These troopers obviosly did not know that my father was a retired Mayfield Police officer when they made the comments

Wow. If ignorance is bliss, there are some happy people around here. Mayfield has had problems in the past and there are some great officers there. There are also some questionable ones. None that do anything illegal, just some that may want a career change. Look at there history. Every generation, there is political throat cutting and back stabbing. I am not a State Police employee and normally just look at the forum for fun. Mr. Smith: I have heard that you are a great trooper and leader. You know that you will not be the next chief of police in Mayfield. That job is reserved for a "yes man." There is nothing wrong with that (it is the way of the world). You know who has been filling that position. The same person that is partially responsible for the last four chief's leaving. I also heard Steve Hendly is retiring. Why isn't he interested in the job? Someone should call him and ask him why. By the way, go ahead a trace my ISP. I would love to see the police at my door.

No he doesn't. He is certainly qualified to hold any office. He is the best "local" detective I have met around here. I guess I should say he "was" until he changed jobs.

He cared about his job & he cared about people. It mattered to him to get to the truth. That is much more than I can say about some others around here.

The man who is most qualified is not listed above. Bubba Hendley, but i dont blame him for retiring. I KNOW the whole story, and i know how crooked half the people in this town are. It wouldve been good to see a good man who has busted his ass for this city for 28 years get it.

For those who do not know Brad, he's a GREAT guy and he's fair and honest, he's about as real as you can get. And he's not an outsider, he's got experience long term. Its just what this town needs somebody who will work and get these dead beats off the street and Brad would be the one to do that.....

Miss Obama Mama, Brad Smith is hardly an outsider. He has lived and worked in Graves County or Calloway County most of his career. He knows the area and the people very well.
