It's a pubic record. You could list them on Topix and that would help. I've noticed the Knoxville paper publishes quite a lot of this type news from Morristown, Clinton, and Oak Ridge.
Maybe it's because it was No. 1 News when a roundup occurred a few years ago. There was no news follow up. It's my undertanding there was nothing done to most of them. A few that had any assets were drained for attorney fees. The rest and the others too were in the care of the county. We taxpayers had to pay medical care, dental care, food, clothes, and if had no money pay for their attorney, attorney expenses, and also pay the couty and/or state judge's salary to represent them and to hear the case. Most got a slap on the wrist, I hear. I imagine thousands of dollars was spent and for nothing. I had not heard of a recent roundup and it may not be true. In factm I don't believe it. Anyway what's the use. Most decent people have given up. It's way out of hand. Not just Union County, but everywhere. Where will it end? You can find out if true if you want to. Let us know.

I googled it and several were arrested in Union County. One was Jerry Masingo charged with second degree murder and being held on $100,000 bond. WTF, Who did he kill?

Beats Me. Don't recall a recent murder. I didn't mean that I've given up, but sometimes am so low about chidren and young people that I feel its useless. Some parents collect food stamps and sell them to buy drugs. The childredn do not benefit. I've heard a story were a 15 year old said she had not had anything to eat for two days except a bag of Fritos. Said there was not food in the house. Then these kids go to school w/o any money. Thank goodness for free lunch because I understand students can get lunch, but never any money for xtras. By now the parents and grandparents are down the tube and these kids have no where to turn. I feel if you tried you would have horrible crime committed against you. I do not feel the sheriff and deputies can really do much about this no matter if they are perfect. I guess I'm ddiscouraged and appreciate you. I am a person of faith and grace along with being a worrier. I worry because it seems there's not enough worry and no one knows what to do I was in a store recently and an attractive girl about 16 was there. She looked like she had been laying in a muddy ditch, hair very dirty and teeth rotted outr except for little black pegs. I understand that's was happens with Meth. She bought two bags of (I think) Ramie Noodles. About 0.15 each. Not much.

Go to the website and t lists ALL of the names of who was arrested for what. Look under the UC section. News stations won't report it,because they know the judges here are too leient,and will let them off.

this happened awhile back why did unl paper not report on this, I think our police department does not report things to the knox news or they blow it off when contacted by knoxville news. I`m with you cat21 things have been this way for years and nothing changes same people run our town so we do what we do and go on

I think roundup is true. However, it does not meet the definition of a round up like the one a few years ago. When there is a murder or a loss of life while in custody it is required than an internal investigain be made. It also requires law enforcement agencies to look into the matter in addition to the sheriff's office. A real round up would be to collect facts on these 15-20
Big Daddy pushers and have enoung evidence to put them behind bars for a long time. This usually takes about one year. Then when most of the king pins fold--most of the mules fade away or leave town. The poorest then are left w/o much to play this rotten game with. Then most of the little children and teens will have a better shot at life. No, there was no roundup--wish there had been. I think most that is posted on here are into drugs themselves and blast each other for territory and hoping to get a sheriff that will let it run wide open. The present ones can't be doing to bad because to many arrests.Most law officers are abused by these usuers. The judges are not strick enough with them. If more could be done, i think it would help. Stop it. No.
