It was totally political! And you know Junior Loy didn't even have the balls to do it himself, he sent his little pee-ons to do it for him. Whata wuss. The County is going downhill and downhill fast with our "sheriff" if thats even what you wanna call him. Just awful. Completely awful.
Jerry is such a sweet and straight forward guy. Great person and one hell of a police officer. We need more Jerry Lawson's in the world! I bet you could ask him for the shirt off his back and you'd get it. I just can't believe this.

Proud Momma you know your stuff!

He didn't do his job he got paid for 40 hours a week doing litter and u can ask anybody down there he NEVER did it the inmates will even tell u he never took them out I think it was a great move by the sheriff the last time I seen the inmates out eric logsdon had them out and that was at least a month and half or 2 months ago

Well this county elected him as their sheriff. This is what Union County has to look forward to for 4 more years. He is a coward, he had the chief and another patrol officer tell him that he was going to be let go, after 8 years of working for them. This says everything about the man. What kind of sheriff doesn't arrest people anyways. Anyone that picks law enforcement as a career isn't picking it for the money I promise you that. The pay sucks. People pick law enforcement because they have a passion for it, to protect the honest and hard working citizens and put criminals in jail. Jr Loy hasn't brought a single person to jail in the last 4 years! Don't be surprised if he doesn't in 4 more either. Why is it that all major investigations in Union County have been initiated by agencies other than the Union County Sheriffs Department? Our local sheriffs dept has some good officers, but its pointless to have good officers if you don't have good leadership.

I saw Jerry always working for the litter program "Knows" so you are providing vague and wrong info. In addition, he did not have anything bad on his record--it is excellent. There is no reason they should have dismissed him. This is BS!!!

We ain't talkin' bout Billy Breeding so don't try and play politics after the election because you look like a fool. We're talking about Jerry Lawson and a good man and officer's job. This was a bad move on the sheriff's department. Jerry is well respected and ethical. So how many more good officers won't be returning?

Maybe somebody should ask larry lay it was him that let jerry go also let another great officer go said there was not enough funds to pay them, Its a larry lay thing, Not a jr loy one,Larry had to be bad one more time while he can,But the new people gets in office tomorrow so maybe things will be right again.

This was not Larry Lay. There was sufficient funds to pay these officers so that is not even an issue. If that is the case, there should be a county commission meeting to discuss where the "funding" disappeared to in order to pay these officers. Lawson's salary is paid for partially by a grant so that is bogus.

This is all a Junior Loy thing. For the simple fact that Jerry Lawson's family was against Junior Loy. That should have nothing to do with his job, who he wants to vote for is his own business. Its your first constitutional right to freedom of speech. Yon can vote for whoever you want and your job shouldnt be affect by it either way you vote.

If you want to know the truth Junior Loy stood for what was wrong and Jerry Lawson stood for what was right.

Just to let you know, taking the inmates out and doing litter pick up on the roads was not his only duty. He also had to follow up on litter ordinances, he had to keep up a log of what and how much he picked up with all the inmates, having the proper paper work, writing letters, and doing the sheriff's ridiculous requests such as filling in for the school officer when mike butcher put him there. So NO, taking the inmates on the roads to pick up trash was NOT his only job.

Sorry to hear that Jerry Lawson lost his job. but when your voting against your boss you know that this is a possibility. This goes on all over America no place is immune from it. Jerry will land on his feet with another department. I personaly wish Mr.Lawson the best. Remember there always the possibility Tennessee Highway Patrol.
