It looks like Rascoe has found a way to make plenty of money for Desoto County. Anyone that thinks that they don't use traffic violations as a way of making their budgets had better think again. I think the county was a whole lot better off when Riley was in office by all of the accounts that I have heard.

Sound like DeSoto county is making money of traffic ticket.Instead of chasing criminal.
The sheriff would rather chase people that are not wearing seat belts, has no insurance, people not hurting a sole, while the crime rate is soring.
Time for the po-lice to do what we hire them to do, that is catch the real criminals, ones that rob, rape, and kill people. Oh! but wait there no money in those people.

come on sheriff give the people a break, stop stopping people to smell there seat belt to see if they are wearing seat belts

People its just the county's way of making revenue and spending tax dollars. I believe that they want you not to show and up to court, so that you could just pay the fine or get a warrant for failure to appear...but that's just my thought! Good luck to all DeSoto County traffic violators and the surrounding businesses around the court house.

Every community and state in the country is facing budget shortfalls due to decreased tax collection because people don't have jobs. This is happening more and more as a way to bring in revenue. It will only get worse. Granted some of these people are repeat offenders and need to be off the streets. In good economic times the law wouldn't give them a 2nd glance.

Hey there "James King" We dont know if your going to go to court our not. So, you show up the first time if you dont want to pay the ticket. Then the judge gives you a continuance, and the officer get a order to come to court. Its set up like that, becauase, a cop would spend all his or her shift in a court room. "Tax Payer" Do you live in the county or city? Because if you live in the county you would see Sheriffs vehicles in your subdivision. If you live in a city, Im sure you see more police officers. "Publics" A law is a law. If cops didnt have to waste there time on stuff like insurence, seat belts, speeding or other traffic violations, then we could give catch more serious criminals... Did you ever think about that?

The real problem isn't the tickets- it's the ridiculous way that they are resolved! I can't believe that the best solution for EVERY ticket is to have everyone go to court. If your tag expired, you have to stand in that line to see the judge to prove it's been renewed. If you have a tail light out, you have to stand in that line to prove to the judge it's been fixed. Not many states still operate in that manner... it's a wee bit backwards.

They wouldnt have to be resolved if the problem was fixed and a ticket didnt have to be issued

What was WRONG was YOU speeding. Desoto is NOT the City of Memphis nor do we intend to get that way. You don't obey the law, you pay. As for the poster that said leave these peeps along and chase the criminals....they did,they chased them,they caught them, they jailed them and now they have you people to go after.!! THEY are doing THEIR job!

If you call what southaven city police are doing and Justice network doing there job than you are igorant. Southaven harrasses people for dump ass reason like a dangling tail light. The light was working And he could see my tag. My daughter and I had went to Walmart in Whitehaven and as soon as we crossed back over into Mississippi they were waiting to harasses someone. I live right behind Dale's so I had already turned into my neighborhood when the officers decided to cone out after me. All of my info came back fine and he told me about my tag light which was bullshit. Then wanted me to step out if the car. I was not in trouble he assured me. I complied and he began trying to search my car.and I ask him what he was doing because I had not give him any probably cause it permission and told him I felt like he was harrassing me. The officer told me he was the wanting to search my car he wanted to search my purses.I was told I let him or I could set for a hour or so waiting in a dog. Now if you call that doing there job than your full of shit. This has happened to me two times with in 7 days. One time I was not wearing my seat belt paid and not complaining about that but I was at the entrance of my subdivision for 45min to hour and half waiting in a dog because they had no reason to search and I would not allow them. Doing there job would be to inform me if the tail light and run my DL when clean send me in my way and to just write a citation not hold you like your a criminal. They are fucking pricks who act like they've can do what ever they want with adult but let some juviniles be acting stupid or harassing and they can not do a damn thing. That's why they are running them and make southaven like Memphis so for those of you who think that we not getting like Memphis here in DeSoto county than you just stupid. They shooting the wrong man in the back of the head through the door and leaving a police dog in a hot car and he died. They need to be punished just as anyone else would. This place is ALL ABOUT THE MONEY!!!!!!!!! If they weren't they would have a place for they homeless and hungry. They have resources for addicts and places for the less futunate to go to. Where I live I see homeless and hungry humane beigns which need help get back on there feet not harassed to no end because one has following on hard time. Damn use that money everybody that does anything here has to pay to Justice Network if someone going to be on probation and be charged then put that money back in to our community. What the hell do they need all those people working up there for anyway causes there doing nothing. I talked to a different one Everytime who I am suppose to talk to not been there at all the time I checked in and then today going to call and want me to come test again I just tested yesturday. Yes I been in the hospital so I missed a test and need three before court which is just another way for them to profit BULLSHIT. I a have known people who had way more paraphernalia than I did but is a resident of TN so they paid their fine and did a drug test and had no probation I had one personal gram they had seventeen. They crooked ass fuckers wasting good money and valuable resource that DeSoto county need we are the number one county in the state for overdoses DI NOT even blame Memphis it being sold right here in our community.
